Chrysler Imperial 2006
When I heard that Chryler is
going to present a new Imperial, I was very curious.
The earlier concept cars showed an interesting design,
than I saw this...
The similarities to the actual Rolls-Royce Phantom
and that's an ugly car. At least, the Rolls-Royce shows some independant design,
which the Chrysler Imperial doesn't.
The press release for the new Imperial states that the designers were inspired by the old Imperials of the 30's and 50's, as well as they were inspired by long tradition of creative prototypes.
Hmm, I can't see any similarities, and in my opinion
the design is not very creative.
The car is just big and heavy. Looking like a tank.
