    I'm not so sure this will be so much of a problem in Beverly Hills though...

      I thought I'd read that the Landaulet was going to produced by Magna in Austria? (Link)

      Sure - but then shoot it on Hollywood Boulevard and not in Welgevonden (that's my best guess of the location - not 100% certain) because it just ends up looking silly and unrealistic.

        Thanks @Wolfgang - so Madikwe is quite far from Welgevonden (about 200 km as the crow flies) but the topography is very similar. It's on the border of the North West Province, Botswana and Limpopo. Certainly very different to the landscapes of the Kruger.

          Afrika is so awesome, these shots are sick.

          The only wild animals I see from day to are pigeons.

            Ground clearance is epic, you could drive lengthways over a fat Nile crocodile!

                      They really made some meaningful changes to the G for this application. This should have been sold in the U.S. and with more than just 99 copies. I really like it and it has the V12. Great sendoff for this version of the G.

                      But you just know a few wealthy Americans will likely order one from a foreign dealer ....the joys of Globalisation!
