Sorry, but the 2 tone paint scheme on a modern, swoopy sedan looks as out of place as those faux tonneau roof coverings octogenerians love to put on modern Caddies, Buicks, and Sonatas.

It's a good third world dictator look. You can imagine the two mini flags flapping around at each corner.

Get one now just because of that V12. They are an endangered species of internal combustion engine...

There is a galaxy-sized gap in quality between the two, though.

I saw a medium/light blue S580 the other day.  I personally wouldn't go for a two tone paint job, but it looked good.

Quality or not, I find the look out of place on a swoopier car design.  On a modern Roller, which still has the blockier style of older cars and a pronounced character line to mark the belt line, it still kind of works.
