Rolls Royce used by an Indian maharaja during British reign up for sale

London , Sun, 31 Jul 2011 ANI

London, July 31 (ANI): The glorious Rolls Royce car used by an Indian maharaja during the British reign is to be sold in US next month by Bonhams auction house.


According to a foreign news agency, the car which was commissioned by Umed Singh II, the maharaja of Kotah, is expected to sell for up to 1.6 million dollars.


Bonhams said that the car's eight-litre, six-cylinder engine with a low gearing ratio allowed "it to creep powerfully through the roughshod jungles of Rajasthan".


"It was more for a show but everything would be ready and then they would then go and take this Rolls Royce up to a point or the hills and from there shoot the tiger that was already captured by their servants," the BBC quoted Pran Nevile, a writer and expert on India's colonial history as telling saying.
