21: Chrysler Imperial
We aren’t talking about the Imperial that was a semi-muscle car, but about the 2006 concept instead. The 2006 Imperial was about the worst case of plagiarism the auto world has ever seen. The car was outright a carbon copy of the Rolls Royce Phantom from its beltline to its stance. We’re not sure what Chrysler was thinking with this one but it’s a no-brainer why the Imperial didn’t make it to the market.
Chrysler was riding high on the success of the 300C around this period, so it makes sense that the company would try to capitalize. The Imperial was designed to elevate the Chrysler brand into the high-end realm, but there was no originality. Rolls Royce has a certain level of prestige behind it and the Chrysler brand will never be able to match that.
