What car would you want to be driven in?

Most car enthusiasts enjoy driving, amirite? But what would happen if you broke both legs in a serious gardening accident and had to be driven around for a month. What car would you want to be driven in?

Think hard, because you might totally bonk out after a month of riding shotgun. Would you want some sort of nimble executive sedan with a skilled driver at the wheel, a tricked-to-RV-status SUV, or something in between? Naturally, because I've always wanted to spend a month at 1970s puppet-dictator summer camp (Right? Shouldn't that be a real thing?), I'm going with the Mercedes 600 Grosser. Not to bite off Jeremy Clarkson too much, but there's probably no feeling like being wafted along on a cloud of 6.3-liter M100 V8, then pulling up to the dry cleaner's like Coco Chanel, Hugh Hefner, Elizabeth Taylor or Pol Pot. Of course, that's not the only way to go.
