Feck me I have just seen pictures of the new Rolls Royce Cullinan. What a pig ugly lump of shite. I don’t care how fast it goes or how luxurious it is I am just astounded that a car maker that used to have so much style can turn out something like this. I guess Brits have very little influence over the German owners these days. The decline in style has been gradual over the years but this is the now the pits imo :shrug:

Alfa have now put all future models except Stelvio style SUVs on hold as well. As an Alfa fanatic this is sad news :down:

Our neighbour has a Porsche 4x4 AND it's got a turbo tractor engine. WTF! He should be shot for having appalling taste and Porsche should be heavily fined formaking/selling farm machinery. Leave it to Lamborghini!

This is very sad, I've been hoping they'd make a Giulia wagon or 'sports break' type thing. That mini truck thing is disgusting. A mate arrived in the Quattro-formagio Gilliam yesterday. What a car!

I totally agree but it's not just Rolls Royce, Jaguar are making some awful looking cars they do one that looks like a nissan qashqui and another looks like a Toyota

tempted by a 2/3 year old Maserati Ghibli for about £23K. Last chance to get something before we're all forced to buy electric or driverless cars. Anyone got one ?

I've been tempted by masers too, have a friend with one, and another friend (Italian) who has a fleet of vintage ones . . . .he drives a Merc as a daily driver!

I have lusted after a Maserati for years and some are “relatively” cheap now. I go into a cold sweat thinking about potential maintenance costs though. I have heard some real horror stories and they don’t hold their price either. Alfa maintenance is cheap as chips in comparison and they aren’t cheap!
