    Audis just don't strike me as having enough panache for the royals like say a Bentley, Rolls Royce, or Jaguar would.

    Well, what can I say. My future King does actually have some taste in him :bigthumb: If Buckingham Palace could get him to stop talking to plants and flowers I might be able to take him seriously.

    But I'm not overly suprised he chose Audi, seen as I think both Princes William and Harry use Volkswagen Golfs as their personal cars. I suppose the Royal Family just can't get away from its German roots:big grin:

    as nice as an A8 is, for representational purposes it cant beat a rolls, a bentley or a maybach. the only mass market luxury to actually compete with them in terms of image would be a merc S-class.

    Possibly true, however he didn't get the Audis for "representational purposes," he got them for "personal use." An Audi is more fun to drive than Rolls, Bentley, or Maybach.
