In what might be the most perverse story of the day, the New York Times is reporting that the Environmental Protection Agency is classifying the Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe as a compact car, due to their standards for classifying vehicles, which measure interior volume.

The same regulation has the Aston Martin DBS classified as a “minicompact” alongside the MINI Cooper, while the Nissan Versa, Hyundai Elantra and Toyota Prius are technically “midsize” cars. Considering that the Phantom Coupe is the size of an 18-wheeler, and drinks fuel like Lindsay Lohan after arguing with her parents, we’re a little mystified that the EPA maintains such cockamamie regulations.
