Star of India

Now this little beauty is the former wheels of the Maharaja of Rajkot.  Please take a minute to gaze lovingly.  Bling?  Puff Diddy or whatever he calls himself these days doesn’t know the meaning of the word.

This bespoke Rolls Royce Phantom II was part of a private collection and it is now up for auction.  It is the property of Hans Gunther Zachs, who recently decided to sell his entire collection of vintage Rolls Royces.

Let’s get acquainted.  Roll VT, Bob.

It is expected to be auctioned off for sixty million euro, minimum.  But who has that money to spare these days?  Rumour has it the bidder will include cartels from Asia, African despots, and Middle Eastern Sheiks.

To see the rest of this fantastic collection check out this link:
