WHAT? That is unbelievable ! Are Indians really that rich?? I cant get over it. So when billionaires the world over are putting money down on their Rolls DHC and boasting about it at Ascot and the Hamptons all I can say is pooh big deal. A fellow Indian just basically dropped money on more than two here in amchi mumbai. Its about as amazing as some Sheikh ordering two DHCs. Thats an obscene amount of money. Its a fabulous car. HUGE! Saw it at the Dubai Motorshow. Love the yachtlike woodlinning.

I met a middle aged guy from Chikmagalur 10 years ago. Right in front of Hot Tracks, bangalore. He was standing next to his car and chewing pan. Wearing lungi and white shirt. Rubber Bata slippers. His car was getting fitted with one of the most expensive (then) audio system. I don't know what but Anil (owner, Hot Tracks) told me it was for 1.5 lac.

Car was Merc E Class.

Sorry, off topic.

Well thats what i call India Shining....

Anyways Mav any idea about where will be DHC go...
My Guess says

Rolls Royce = Rich Man
Convertible RR = Rich man who wants to show off...

Is it someone related to Bolly or Tolly

Or (Last option)

IS it gonna be a Demo Car..
