We can't quite decide if this is right up there with spinner hubcaps or if it's genius bordering madness. It's certainly frugal, we'll give them that. California-based LuxuryKit made this knock off of the 2004 Rolls-Royce 100EX concept using a Chrysler 300C sedan as its basis. We'll call it the 300CX, since that seems to fit the bill. The front and rear seem to be all that's done up about the vehicle, but it's enough to notice. A big fat grille, a new fascia that incorporates the squinty headliamps, and amended taillights seem to be the biggest modifications. At any rate, if imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, we're not so sure that Rolls-Royce would appreciate the sentiment. We're not sure LuxuryKit's "Phantom SUV" GMT800 conversion would win many people over in Goodwood, either.

      As ugly as it is, it looks better than the rolls.

      They sure made the back look like a Crown Vic snas chrome. Not sure if that was the goal or not.

      10. chinese market, anyone??

      Noooo waaaayyyy!

      First of all, the Chinese have at least a little more taste than this.

      Second, it's not BUICK!

      I've always thought the arse-end of the 300 was kinda uninspired. The taillamps are too pointy and rectangular to fit the rest of the body's shape and the trunk looks like they ran out of ideas past the rear wheel.

      I like the lines on this thing's trunk but the taillights could be a bit larger. Also like the ridge line running down the side. Front end - extreme but cool. I wouldn't buy one, but you'd catch me gawking.

      Refine this and put it out as the Imperial and I'd consider it.

      This is an appropriate "tribute" to the Rolls.

      Unfortunately, the new Rolls is so gouche, so over-the-top-screaming-new-money-look-at-me that it offends the legend of this once exclusive and elegant vehicle. Oh, and to think this is from a nameplate that made the legnedary, timeless, and beautiful Silver Cloud.

      Then again, I can't afford one (the Rolls) anyway. If I could, I'd be in a Bentley!

      Yeah, the Phantom SUV was absolutely heinous.

      that looks like somone had a great idea that failed terribly on paper, but still made it to production...make it look more fitting and less slash-doshed and id buy one (well, if i had a 300)

      OK, it's not my taste, but it's not completely horrible and it does look a helluva lot better than Chrysler's Imperial concept. The sweptback grill actually works on this.
