Yup.. even all of us were thinking the same.. but it so happens that the car colour is the colour of his company logo.. and he is gonna use it for promotional purposes.. RR does not offer this colour.. it was borrowed from BMW esp for this car.. it shows.. if u have the money.. u can do anything!!!

Mr Sunil Mittal is a simple man, I have met him many times with my dad, i doubt this is his, he is not this ostentatious. But then again for promotional purpose may be, but i still doubt it..

BTW Mavrick, I think there is another one like this and I would give you nothing to guess...since its not very difficult to guess...



oh well I cant wait for you to guess...





I think its Dubai, I will try and look for the pictures..I am forgetting which forum i saw the picture, but i am sure i saw the picture of a car like this.. (Edit: Ahhh Found it but it is red with silver, i thought it was red with white, but anyways there is one in dubai which is pretty much like this and when i saw that i thought to myself that I had now seen everything, but this beats that phantom to the moon, now this is craziest color combo on a phantom and i say it in the worst possible way)
Dropped a spot. From 1st to the 2nd most disgusting color scheme to adorn a RR

The old BTS or BMTS busses looked just like this. Red body white top, may be someone got inspired by our good old busses.

Aaah yes,that was a while ago.come to think of it Rolls Royce's had been back then been converted to garbage trucks,Shikar-van's...god know's what else!

This is a very classic case of history repeating or illustrious Indian's continuing the trend on revival of economy..........Except i would like to know what this is promoting? Old BTS bus or ????.

whatever this company is and whatever goods/services the sell, I hereby vow never to use or patronize them in anyway so as in the smallest way I dont indirectly contribute to such criminal atrocities by the owners.

Sad, sad sight to see a Phantom made to look like this. And to think RR did the job themselves is even sadder...

I liked the combination.
It stands out!! It exhuberates a different class
Why should one not have the only combination when he's shelling out 5crs!!
It takes Time to start liking something different, its a question of Foresight on the part of the owner!!
Why are all critisizing the choice? If a person has lets say 15 cars, and in all possible colours, and wants to add a new one and that too a RR, why cant he opt for this combi,--and what better than the flagship car of his collection in his groups colours!!!
think what goes on into the mind of the owner when he reads this thread?
RR wouldnt do a deviation if they felt it would harm their reputation.

RR's reputation doesnt get harmed cause they stand for service which allows the customer to customize to his liking. But it completely tarnishes the owners taste. Fine every individual is entitled his own choice in something. But all of us at the forum will opine certain things...some that we can't come to terms with. The Phantom is a beautiful and stunning piece of engineering. Its not meant to look like a sneaker.
