Rolls Royce Phantom Hybrid? – East 65th Street, NYC

July 14th, 2009 by Ian

We couldn’t help but notice the Hybrid badges on this $380,000+ Phantom EWB rolling around the Upper East Side. The driver told us the one-of-a-kind Hybrid Phantom is a prototype that was generously loaned to his VIP client, by Rolls Royce, for everyday use. While this field testing technique is not unheard of, and there is talk of an EV, we are suspect of the big green badge, which is identical to the one General Motors places on all their plebeian hybrids. You would think a unique badge would be fitting for such a lavish engineering effort.

Audi A8L – East 65th Street, NYC

May 15th, 2009 by Ian

audi-a8lNew York big shots have a lot of choices as far as livery vehicles go. The most obvious VIP method of transport is a chauffeur-driven Town Car. And lord knows there are more than enough of those pounding the pavement. But for those who want to exude a little more panache and style, enter the A8L. Just like the SWB (short wheelbase) version, the A8L is the poster-boy for tasteful extravagance. The lines are simple and classy, not bulbous or overcomplicated in anyway. It screams of class not ostentation. Just add it to the list of design hits (A5 being one of them) coming out of Ingolstadt these days.
