first of all, i dont have a house this expensive. Hmmm...tough choice this. both the cars cannot be termed beautiful in any sense. but in my view, the rolls has much greater presence than the merc and much classier interiors with its lounge seating. the phantom does remind u of a WW2 tank though. so it depends on whether u want more class or more tech for ur money. i guess i'll settle for the maybach with its awesome back seats......sip champagne and doze off.

Maybach for me!!! The Phantom looks odd. It's got a very boxy front view and the C pillar is way to big.

It's a bad deign, could have been so much better.

The Maybach on the other hand looks very streamline, it's got better interiors and the creature comfort is as good as it gets.

Extremely Tough Question. I dont know. Maybe the Maybach maybe the Phantom. Well Id prefer the Rolls for its driving capabilities but the Maybach for its comfort (which is just unmistakably better than the Phantom). And since in this class of cars you would be sitting in the rear than up ahead driving the car id go for the Maybach. + Both have the presence of richly costly cars but the extra lenght of 6.2 metres gives the Maybach the extra edge

I would choose the Rolls Royce Also for the Exterior and the Mayback for the Interiors BUT overall it has to be the Rolls.

I'd go straight away to the Maybach BRABUS !!!

Looks to kill, interiors to die for...and performance which will leave your phantom in the dust.
