Way to go Clive ditched the white Holden Commodore for the Rolls Royce.

Clive should have turned up in a S-Class Mercedes now that would be traveling in style!


1970's Whitlam Government knew how to travel in style white W116 S-Class.

Sorry Tim unless he turned up in a 600 Grosser . No chance of any Mb made after WW2 matching the RR it was a Phantom same as Governor General used to use. And Benzboy is looking after. No Mb matches that.

Yes but it wouldn't have made the paper if that's what he turned up in. It blends in and people go just another car then forget about seeing it. Current Mb have as much style as a Kia . Oh sorry the better designer works for Kia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Schreyer And the Chinese now have Mb best most recent designer http://www.drivingandlife.com/2013/0...rcadipane.html Who started be designing Mad Max car .

By the Way Tim Mb tried recently to match RR in style and market place. They failed it almost Mb car production . The Money they lost with Maybach and Chrysler was estimated to be 18 months from sinking the company. When they sold Chrysler for I believe $6 billion . http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maybach http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daimler_AG

Sorry Motec....
Although Daimler 'technically' sold Chrysler for $7.4 billion, they actually ended up 'paying' $650 million to offload it.
All the money they so called received paid for Chrysler debts to enable them to get out of that mess.

It's either a PVI or a Cloud III LWB - but it's not relevant. He can use whatever car he chooses; a Trabant would have shown more genuine concern for pensioners though.

Clive should have rocked up in his red SLS AMG!

Clive has quite a large car collection I believe also dinosaurs and a big boat called the Titanic.

Watch the video the Media were all over Clive asking questions about the Rolls Royce.

One Journo said the car was a Bentley that is not the case.
