Always felt the classic late 50's Rolls Royce designs looked more stately and elegant, perhaps this is the reason the Phantom stuck with this look for decades.

Perhaps its the Ghost that should pay homage to the Silver Shadow.

I'm deeply disturbed internally by the slightly differnet height of the door latches on the B pillar ;)

I can imagine several logical explanations. Given that the pillar is important for crash safety, it would not surprise me that the "misaligned" latches have something to do with keeping the pillar strong i.e. two latches in the same place would put two unfortified holes in the same position potentially weakening the pillar. Just a speculation.

It certainly has reasons, it's more of an OCD thing ;)

I don't think they're actually different heights. What looks like the handle on the right is actually a part of the camo around the wheel. The handle on that side is not visible because the door is open too far, but the rounded cut out for both sides occurs at the same level. That's where both handles are in reality I think.

I was strictly refering to the position on the inside, normally not visible. It#s really just a small thing on an otehrwise built to perfection car with rasons I suspect similar to what swizzle discribes...

I'm gettin' some serious mid-1980s Lincoln vibes (::running and ducking::)

I'm sure it will be properly imposing in real life. ;)

And I love that it doesn't have a fully digitial gauge cluster! Analog gauges seem very appropriate here.
