I'm Trying to be nice -
- but I'm skipping over the CT6 in hopes of what I've read is purportedly coming after that one. For me the CT6 it's a severe case of "Needs Less Audi Skin". The "real" flagship is supposed to follow on later. Or not. If only there had been the teeniest allegiance to Ceil or Elmiraj then this upcoming Cady "coulda' been a contender". Now it just looks like a big Asian 'EU clone'. And I don't know if China still uses the 3.0 liter cap but the motor line-up appears lop-sided toward that market.
I caught an article on the Avenir and my kneejerk reaction is I should be seriously thinking of revisiting my earlier roots as a Buick man. At least this version of the Omega has a few freakin lines on it:
@ Richard - it's against my religion to buy a car new. Only 3 times in history; 2 SUVs for the wife. And of course my SS. But, if they end up putting a real motor in that Avenir I can seriously see myself in one after just a couple years of depreciation has washed off.
