"oh yes"
 
   Reference images are always a good thing. There are no pictures of the brand-new 2411 Bentley Arnage Type-C that Gryphon rents in "Upward Mobility", as it's an entirely made-up car (I picture it looking something like a cross between a modern Arnage, a Bugatti Veyron, and one of those early-1970s Corvettes with the bulgy fenders), but here's the Newport Phaeton he draws from the IPO motor pool when he gets back from Perth.

It's a replica of a 1940 Chrysler Newport Phaeton with modern running gear underneath, and it knows some Q-Branch-esque tricks - a similar deal to the treatment Gryphon, Skuld, and company gave Kaitlyn's '62 Impala. M5 Industries built the prototype; the production units are made by a small custom shop in Elstree specifically for the use of high-level IPO agents.

Heee... That looks like something I would drive wide-open down the freeway, laughing like the proverbial mad-man-possessed.

   I knew I recognized the name, but I couldn't place it (probably because 60s and early 70s muscle cars are more my interest when it comes to four wheels).

Nice, nice ride.

Or possibly a convertible version of the Maybach Exelero, except with a less blatantly Teutonic front end.

Man. That's as close to a real-life Batman: The Animated Series Batmobile as we're ever likely to see. It's even got that built-in forced perspective in the nose to make the car look even longer than it is, just like that Batmobile.

... Wow. That is a heckuva design -- I wish we'd get an affordable production car with that kind of front end.

Unfortunately, the wisdom that seemed to prevail right up until the end of the 70s that the ideal driving position is sitting on the back bumper is long gone; now we have "cab-forward" design and front ends that, if anything, look shorter than the actually are. (I drive a '97 Camaro, and despite having a substantial hood by 1997 standards, I cannot actually see it when behind the wheel.)

This is because we live in the age of clueless f-wits who...
1)Don't really know how to drive and shouldn't have been issued a license in the first place and/or...
2)Are utterly incapable of judging distances and of knowing what constitutes -very- bad place to try and parallel park your car.
