Default Some more pix

Here's some more pics of the Phantom in Attakkulangara, Trivandrum; these were taken by Mr. Bijith, a colleague of mine:






Thoughts based on some feedback:

- This wild idea is apparently not clicking as intended
- Only very few people can / will recognize a Phantom (though a lot of them are aware about the car); remember, not all indians are TBHPians
- Those who will, might not appreciate the campaign
- Most laymen will think it as Tatamobile/estate remodded
- They should have used a Merc SLK / Hummer / maybe a lambo as all these "latinos" offer better eye-candy than this English lady

Rolls-Royce have looked into the matter and I have access to an email from an owner,however he would like to keep most content private just posting the relevant stuff here,name's and other details have been kept private.

With regards to the logos on the car, this is again something that is down to the individual requirements of the end customer- we do not have control what our customers add to their cars when it is in their ownership.

i felt exactly the same way when i saw this idea of campaign,in that budget he could buy a gallaro and a f430 which could be more eyecatching as well as they would have been two in number
well ,atleast it increses yhe count of RR in india

Spotted the car in mumbai some time back. At Hiranandani Powai.

I did not believe that it was a Phantom, painted so garishly. I mean, who would be so shameless(& rich) to use it as an advertisement board?

Its huge, but still not as big as the Maybach, which is a truck...

I realized it was PS, but didnt wanna spill it out. Nicely done, though.
As for the radial blur on the wheels, i tried the same on one of my car pics, and it didnt come out well.

The reason why they did not use a Lambo or Ferrari is quite simple, a sportscar can accomodate 2 people, one driver plus one passenger, wheras the Rolls can accomodate atleast three, the idea is not showing the car but to make people ride in it.
