This Rolls has a UK plates - yellow at the back and white at the front. Coding as follows: HX54BVZ

HX - denotes the area the reg was issued (halifax, I think) - but not always the case if you want a personalised number

54 denotes the period when the plate was issued (changes every six months) - was 54 till April, now 04 till Sept, 55 after sept, then 05 and so on

BVZ - random letter.

One can pay a small premium to get a plate with your initials etc.

well kavit.. u are mistaken.. there is no silver RR phantom in India.. only 2 have graced India so far.. One Golden, which is probably in Singapore now.. and the other Dark Blue.. which u see here.. These 2 are exclusively for Demo, the first a prototype.. the second on is actually a well loaded production car..
Regards,
Maverick

hi V12,
The RR was supposed to go for a photo shoot at the Taj so it wasnt there.. the 6 series is here for some time.. another brand new 6 series has just arrived.. a light golden shade.. looks great, but the blue one looks amazing.. esp in person..

Mav..

Rather than start a new thread- adding on here

Read about Poonawala's Rolls Royce + Cayenne Turbo

I dont think the black RR will go to Poonawala because if u read the article, he has mentioned that he asked for some customizations such as a silver-black combo on the paint job as well as the letter P on all the seats and on the exteriors too somewhere. This car is completly black so i doubt it will go to him without the accessories he asked for.
