The 100 year old Rolls Royce Silver Ghost now estimated at about $4 million lies in splendid beauty at the exquisite Chowmahalla Palace, the residence of the Nizam of Hyderabad, India. In celebration of the Rolls Royce hitting a century the Chowmahalla Palace authorities are planning an event to be held next month. In 1911, Nizam VI had ordered this very same car from the Rolls Royce factory in Great Britain.
However a couple of years ago this royal yellow car was in a pathetic state. Dr Ameenuddin Khan, Administrator, Nizam’s private estates stepped in and convinced the royal family to do justice to the legendary vehicle by getting it duly restored.
Mr Manvendra Singh Barwani was assigned the task of restoring the car back to its near original form which cost almost one-tenth of what the car is valued at the present day. Worth every rupee we reckon.
It is also known that this car was honored with “Best of Class Prize” in the Rolls Royce Class and “Best of Show the Concour de Elegance Prize” in the Cartier Travel with Style Concour de Elegance in India this year.
