A magnificent Rolls Royce Silver Ghost Throne car belonging to the sixth Nizam of Hyderabad, Mehboob Ali Pasha has been damaged by unidentified miscreants within the Chowmahalla palace. The vehicle was a custom made-to-order 1911 model and is stated to be based on London-Edinburgh chassis that had been restored at a princely cost of around 1.5-2.0 lakh.

Speaking more on the occasion to TOI, G Kishan Rao, director Chowmahalla Palace said that CCTV recordings are being looked into to find the culprits. After Pasha’s death, the vehicle was reportedly delivered to seventh Nizam Osman Ali Khan in 1912. The vehicle was under maintenance by Hyderabad State Railway within its garage. The royal Rolls Royce Silver Ghost Throne vehicle was only used for special occasions, which explains it’s only 356 miles driven reading.

The vehicle’s vintage worth is believed to be valued at over Rs 20 Crore. The damaged vehicle is adorned gold mountings, rich and vibrant canary yellow body, lights and silver-finished roof. The car would once again be restored to its pristine beauty and is currently in talks with Rana Manvendra Singh Barwani of Indore.
