"A guaranteed different experience, everything from driving characteristics to the interior. The feeling is British/Indian and you sense a curry smell and hear tones from the Beatles' experimental year in 1967, even though the car is actually from 2006"

Description

This is originally an Indian Taxi. In 2018, the car was worked on and received a spectacular interior, designed by the well-known Indian fashion designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee. This is because it would be one of the items in a charity gala in England in support of baby elephants. At the gala, the royal family participated with, among others, Prince Charles' wife Camilla The Duchess of Cornwall who was photographed beside the car. It was won by a Swede who brought the car to Sweden. It was sold here at an auction, where the proceeds from the sale were donated to The Perfect World Foundation.

The current owner had plans to take it to England to a relative but Brexit changed the circumstances of this.

The car is drivable and in good condition with a working AC. It is not registered in Sweden but has some British documents.

Condition

  • Mechanical condition:

    Is basically a simple mechanism from the 50s/60s but it works well but a general review is needed.

  • Interior condition:

    The interior is a story in itself and is in good condition.

  • Exterior condition:

    The car was painted before the gala and is in decent condition but with some damage in a few places.

  • General condition:

    For once, the term unique is correct. This car, with its history and the involvement of a world-renowned fashion designer, makes it a very special object. It needs an review but in all its history is very special. Both as a car and as a "work of art".
