The hybrid Phantom reminds me of Alain Rouhard's 1953 R Type Bentley Continental (BC23A), which I see around Paris from time to time. In place of the Flying B on the radiator shell, he's stuck a bust of Lenin, which makes the car give a refreshingly mixed message as it cruises down the Avenue Montaigne.

Comrade Lenin, by the way, was quite fond of Rolls-Royces and is said to have owned nine of them while he was head of the U.S.S.R.

I've posted a couple of pictures (which I didn't take) of BC23A in the Bentley section of the Photo Gallery.
