Excize Very unique beautiful color. 2nd March 2015
arun1100 Now I realize how "Special" the car is. What a beautiful example of Premier Padmini "Special".! Have you seen any more "Special" cars?? 16th December 2009
dhrishikesh Nice to know that this is Premier Padmini "Special". 16th December 2009
newcoolgadgets Superb car in fantastic condition! Does the AC still work? I installed a similar looking (although much newer) AC in my 87' Padmini, but the plumbing is not as clean and is visible inside the cabin. Is there any power loss when you turn on the AC?

Is there any place where I can source similar 'medium' whitewall tyres for my Padmini? It originally came with white walls, which wore out and were changed with black wall tyres 8 years ago.

Love your Standard 10 and Pennant too! Great collection!

karlosdeville The base was called Fawn Beige by Premier. For my model, called Special, they added Arctic white to the top after the car was painted at the factory itself. 15th October 2009
hillram Karl...What is this shade called.Looks really distinctive and beautiful. 15th October 2009
karlosdeville Yes, it is mine. Why else would it be in my BHPGarage? :) It has great history and even a period AC fitted when the car was new. 14th October 2009
