Yup i think the white one is the Athena guys car too...chateau indage. He got it used at a very cheap price, I think autohangar was selling it for around 19 lakhs a few years back.

yup. when it was imported sometime in 91 or 92, the origional colour was green with light green interiors. The guy used to stay at the taj then and this car used to be parked in the pride place at the front porch. then he sold it and you see it often whee u see it. let me tell u guys, i think these oldr models had more class to them and look more royal and dignified than the ltest ones. the dual light clusters at the front look great. the newer ones look too modern and clinical.. looks like the soul of RR and bently is lost somewhere in modernisation......!!!

Bentley may have lost some of that charm, but I think the Phantom still possesses it.

Hi Khanak.. we r authorised to service cars only after the Phantom.. we do have a look at older cars.. like the Blue RR posted here had come to us.. but it works out pretty expensive..

Ya dude we do not have any spares for the RR other than the new Phantom.. and even for the Phantom we keep only the running items like Oil filters, brakepads,Lights, Etc.. anything else can be ordered from Goodwood in around 4-5 days.. we cant stock everything because of the cost involved. as far as older cars are concerned all he parts have to be imported..

Default The Rolls Royce Silver Spur.

Seen this car in Bandra. The car is a Rolls Royce Silver Spur. The car sports a 6.8L eight cylinder engine in V configuration. All the power it produces is poured out through a three speed automatic gearbox. When the engine is brought to life, the "Spirit of Ecstasy" rises from its slot above the radiator. Unfortunately, the motors are not it good shape to do this now and she doesn't look soo pretty these days. The interiors have wooden panels, a luxurious feature. You can see that they are still in decent form.

Everything about the car seems original. The driver also maintained that the car still has the power and pickup as it used to in its early days.
