After last month's swift decampment of chairman and chief executive Tony Gott, the double R brought in German Karl-Heinz Kalbfell to helm the ship. Autoweek hits him with a barrage of fairly inconsequential questions, which get similarly inconsequential answers. Kalbfell is quizzed on the so-called German takeover of British marques, the Phantom's lackluster sales numerals, and, as if he were still being interviewed for the job, what makes him qualified to lead Rolls-Royce. So wait, you're saying just looking incredibly stuck-up isn't enough?
