LWB? You mean there was someone who wasnt happy with the enormous legroom of the standard? Dayyyyum, but the car looks hot. Nice pictures.

You can say that again. I was watching the history of Honda the other night, and how it became the company that we know today. After that episode, I just felt a little bit better of owning a Vtec.

Where the Maybach did great, the Phantom lacks. And vice versa.

Well the reclining seats are available as an option.. if u see a few posts earlier i have posted pics of other phantoms.. well a maybach is a maybach and a phantom is a phantom... there r already 19 Phantoms on road in India and a few more in order.. i guess that speaks volumes!!

Man. that car looks super classy. Love the interiors. Are the RR wheel caps prone to falling off easily on bad road?

I remember the red and white mobilestore RR had a wheelcap missing and the silver one at Royal orchid has the front left one missing as well.

I know they have a bearing in them which makes sure the RR logo is always straight.

Well they will fall off only if they r not fixed properly... the ones that were missing were stolen.. the RR centre logo works on a pendulam principle.. it has additional weight which makes sure it stays straight..

Not only in India, but even globally the Phantom outsells the Maybach. The latters lack of badge value and quirky design may have something to do with it.

BTW, i dont ask people 'who i know well' about their personal matters. in my position...i can't afford to look like i'm fawning. if i hear or see something...i'll report on this board for other enthusiasts to enjoy.

Looks like the Convertible Phantom finally got delivered to the Diwans today.
Saw it on my way back from work on the sea link... looked in my rear view mirror and saw the most mesmerizing headlamps ever ! Rectangles of LEDs shining right at me, slowed down to get a closer look...He was crusing and smoking a cigratte with the hood closed ... his white H2 kept him company.

I have to give it to the family for having probably the best collection in Bombay and probably India when it comes to new models. Two Phantoms in under one roof you gotta be a Baller

Yep Sahil. I guess youre right. The Drophead was at the Atria showroom yesterday. Looks like it went home today. BTW as far as I know he has a black H2. Wonder which this white one was.
