What i mean to say buddy is, its quite simple, Mobile Store give a ride to the common man so they can sit in the Rolls as well, hence with a rolls they can give a ride to atleast 4 people.

If it was genuine attention and excitement they were looking for, they should've gone for 2-4 Hummers (H2 or H3) to tour the nation. The sheer fact that most people think this is a modded Tata is a shame in it's own right.

I am willing to buy this Rolls Royce for 15 lakhs, as my budget is slightly tight. I want it in 'as is' condition. With a paintjob like that, I hope it has lost 95% of it's value. If not, I shall continue to work hard... :(

Buddy the best thing you aint need to buy any product from them to hitch a ride.

The aim of the driver is to drive around and give rides to people so they get a chance to sit in a car like the rolls, which very few people can buy, so its a great thing they are doing, so thats why no Lambo, and commong Sports car will scrap all the breakers in India even with adjustable ride height.

Four people?

Here in India getting forty people into a car that size shouldn't be a problem. And that's not counting the children!



I wouldn't be surprised if a ten-times overload made absolutely no difference to the performance of a car like that either.

This car comes passes from the LBS Road Kurla almost daily at around.10 am and turns left towards BKC. has the same dark guy who drives it all the time..

THe car comes at Asha Auto Services for its breakfast.. ( FUEL) and then gets the tires checked and then leaves.. but every time it comes.. it surely pulls some crowd.
Mostly a daily visitor.

Where is the Rolls Royce Logo ?
Rolls Royce are meant to be in a mint condition, not with bits missing. Doesn't seemed to be mainted properly
