C'est magnifique!

This is one of those cars that a person such as myself would love to have.

I believe that in Britian, Fee-Tahn is an acceptable pronunciation, like Sinjin is St. John.

That slip actually depressed me a bit. It is such a well thought out car, it's just so sad that all of that was brought to bear os VW, where it was not needed. It would have been a clear home run for Audi. Oh well. Sad that it will be remebered as teh monument to Piech's hubris, but glad for them they were able to recycle it into the Bentley.

But Audi already has it's own... lol

I like this car, alot. I sat in one at the autoshow. I liked the new S-Class better, I got to sit in that too, but this car is just as good. I'd like to see this go head to head with the new Toyota Crown... see pic below:
