I think thats a custom stretch too. All sedans when stretched end up being raised. And close ups of this Phantom show the the excess space in the wheel arches. I could be wrong but none of the other LWB versions of luxury sedans have suggested third doors and in BMW tradition just a much longer rear door or a spaced window before the rear door. But the RR door handles could be the inspiration to make it extend to look like an additional door. 1Days LWB picture looks more accurate. Also being the Gulf custom stretches are more believable. I've heard one of the Abu Dhabi sheikhs have stretched both Phantoms and Maybachs.

Ah, so the Golden Arnage's been sold...

My friend's dad in Delhi almost purchased it after a test drive, but decided against it as it would've caused him unneeded attention, which he dislikes.

No I can distinguish between a bentley and rr..
I am 100% sure it was a gold rr with reg no. 1..
But I am not sure if it was Phantom..
Because i had read in the news that only 1 rr phantom had been sold..

I heard a friend say he spotted the Phantom at Teynampet in chennai. A brown colour, its seems. No registration yet. Why would that car need a registration? Any info who it belongs to?
