Duursprung vorch technique. Modern Rolls-Royces / Bentleys give me stomach content retention challenges.

Hey Julian.. to each his own, but i feel the new age bentleys and rr's do have a charm/elegance of their own. u dont expect them to be stuck in time do you? blending modern technology with todays design and keeping in mind the old heritage is a tough task, they could have done a better job.. but what they have done is not bad either.. do you feel the same way bout the DHC as well?

what i'm loving is the perfume bottle on the dash of the mobile store phantom!

The other day my friend seen a white Phantom- LWB at Marve Beach,Malad wonder whos it was. I was shocked to see it parked next to a Dust bin and there was no one there to look after the car. What i got to know was that what shocked me more is all the Rickshaw drivers as well as the other urchins were touching the car. There was no one to look after the car. Guys will post the Pic very soon in my next post.

Heard the engine sound, it was so silent as it passed by me.

Really awsome machine and lucky driver.

you make it sound as if 'rickshaw drivers and other urchins' are not human! big deal if they touched the car. their hands are not made of acid. it really wont damage the paint that much. nothing a polish can't take care of and a person who owns a phantom cannot afford. If you can buy a car like that in India, let the people who cannot (99%) at least enjoy looking at it.

Now DROOL.
Hey Dan,

I think there is another one in Juhu apart from the two you have spoken of.

I often see an RR coming out of the Raheja's Bunglow, mostly at night as i stay 2 buildings away from his place. Dont remember the colour as it passes pretty fast , altough i think it might be a black one. There is also a white 'S' and a '530i' i see pretty often there.

Maybe someone can confirm about the RR.....

Is this RR 'wrapped' ie has a vinyl sticker, or is it actually painted like this?
