Brothers?

While I've got the loan car, I couldn't resist a few pics. It's the only way you'd ever want to see a Typhoon put into the side of a GT!

Re: Brothers?

It's amazing how much more modern the Silver F6 looks when compared to the Phantom/Orange stripe GT combo. Goes to show what a little bit of subtle styling can achieve. Having said that, what lovely things to have in your driveway. I must admit if I every end up with an F6 it will be hard not to resist placing a BOSS Bonnet on it with F6 270 down the side. Once you've had one like I have, you just can't imagine driving a BA with it (A bulge).

They do look quite tough together! Excelent pics i cant wait till people start modifying the F6 as well as the GT they would be one sexy combo :)

Mate, tell me you are on drugs. That is the only explanation I could put a statement like that down to.

I've obviously offended you which was not my intention. However not everyone is going to like what you do (drugs or no drugs). I think the orange stripes on the GT dates it compared to the cleaner lines of the F6 in this comparision. Take the orange stripes away on the GT and it maybe a different story. MadManz has a Phantom GT-P with flat black GT stripes and it's a much cleaner presentation IMO. I owned a phantom XR8 so I don't have a personal issue with that colour.

I have to agree with you about the bulge. It is a nice thing indeed looking out over it. Dunno if it really would suit the Typhoon. After all the bulge is for practicality as well as looks. Maybe a flush slot .. or two (really understated) would work.
Don't like the stripes either, but thats just personal. If it was my GT they wouldn't be there. Phantom has grown on me though, and I could live with that no worries.

Re: Brothers?

I agree with CDAA on this point.

The Phantom GT has the stripes because of it's heritage and link to the original GT's. But the stripes don't do it any favours in terms of giving it a clean modern muscle car look - especially in 2005.

I have a Phantom T. Whilst I've modded it considerably, unlike many T and xr8 owners, I've avoided the temptation to put stripes on it for that very reason.

Each to their own, I guess.
