Lahore gets Rolls Royced!

Some of you may remember earlier reports on LMB regarding Rolls Royce’s arrival. Those who don’t, can watch it here and here.

For motor-lovers to celebrate, Rolls Royces are ready to roll on Lahore’s Parisian boulevards!

Dewan Motors are exclusively selling this one-of-a-kind brand of super luxury moving machines in Pakistan. Managing Director, Rolls Royce Europe & the Middle East, Axel Obermuller and CEO Dewan Motors, Dewan Yousaf Farooqui both were present on the inauguration of Rolls Royce’s first display center in Pakistan at Lahore on Wednesday.

The ocassion also marked launch of Rolls Royce’s premier model, the Phantom, in Pakistan.

Rolls Royce Phantom

The Phantom is going to cost around Rs. 50-60 million, depending upon tailored features that include an option for everything custom-made except for the car’s chasis and engine. More details on the Phantom can be found at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.

By being the first city in Pakistan to host the launch of Rolls Royce, and earlier, Porche; Lahore has proven its class for love of art, speed & luxury on wheels…

    it’s also proven to be a farce. lahori’s or pakistani’s who have the kind of money to splurge 60M rupees fall in one of two categories. either a) they’re extremely rich and worked hard to get there, and in doing so are very strong philanthropists at the same time, or b) hardly worked but availed corruption and other illegal means to reach that wealth and like to show it off. the former party neither show off their wealth nor do they need to and their philanthropic efforts are acknowledged and well known. the latter’s means are also well known and documented.

    Its great to see that we have these fancy cars coming up in Lahore. Its natural for such high end cars to make Lahore there home given Lahori’s love affair with doing tihngs on a grand scale.

    Ram, I didnt see Orrisa or Bihar anywhere in that video. I loved the music though.

    But dude Ram, its just an advert shot in the 1st world with a bunch of locals spliced into it. What possible effect was it supposed to have imparted on the viewers?

    You forgot to include millions of people who are either dying of starvation or committing suicide. Obviously this is not representative of India but an arbitrarily selected sample.

    Plus the fact that this “progress” is institutionalised i.e. only few people/institutions get richer and richer and many are quite poor if not poorer.

    stop acting like childs, its there own money, they have worked hard for it, they can spend it how they like, stop getting jeolous just because you cant afford one.

    I was just imagining someone buying a Rolls Royce and then converting it to CNG… lol!

    Can anyone think of a brand that has yet not been converted on gas by Pakistanis?
