Infact back in the days before Independence, Rolls Royce was quite a bit of success here among India’s uber-rich Maharaja’s, reportedly selling over 800 tailor-made vehicles in a time when even owning a set of wheels was a luxury in itself.This strong affinity of India’s ultra rich,back then can be seen as a stepping stone for the future success of the British manufactures through out the world.
