yes you are absolutely correct. this car is based off the Audi A8L, same engine as well with just a little more HP. Frame design apparently is based off a Bentley.

It is, its basically the poor man's A8 (not that theres anything wrong with it). Apparently Volkswagen might be putting the Phaeton back into production too. Not sure why though since its so expensive.

edit*
2011 Phaeton from Beijing auto show.

beautiful interior



Wonder how much it is price-wise compared to the Audi A8.

The Phaeton never went out of production. They simply stopped selling them in the North American market. Sales are still going strong on the other side of the pond.
