From this rarefied vantage point, the Rolls-Royce Phantom truly only competes with the Bentley Mulsanne.
But while the Bentley is still very much a driver's car, the Phantom is meant to be ridden in.
Either way, both models show that their passengers (or drivers) have truly made it—even if they've earned their money the old fashioned way.
Mercedes-Benz has positioned its Maybach line as a division of its namesake brand rather than a standalone brand.
It seems to be working, as the Mercedes-Maybach S600 is every bit a flagship, even if it gives up a few opulence points to the Phantom.
