Rolls-Royce cars are renowned as the epitome of luxury in the automotive world. Those who possess these prestigious vehicles go to great lengths to ensure their immaculate upkeep. However, it is disheartening to witness instances where owners have abandoned their opulent automobiles due to various reasons. The sheer thought of such negligence is enough to evoke deep sorrow, especially when considering the exorbitant value associated with a Rolls-Royce. India, too, has witnessed a few cases where these magnificent vehicles have been left to languish, their once-glorious past now fading into oblivion. Presented here is a list of five such Rolls-Royce cars, which could have been cherished relics of the past, but sadly, are now abandoned.
Rolls Royce Ghost
This Rolls Royce Ghost, featuring a blue and silver color scheme, is the property of Mohammad Nisham from Bengaluru. Nisham is currently facing trial for running over a security guard with his Hummer H2 SUV. The Rolls Royce Ghost depicted in the images has been confiscated by the police and is currently located within the compound of the police station. Bengaluru Police seized the vehicle when Nisham was apprehended for driving under the influence of alcohol. In a desperate attempt to evade capture, Nisham even trapped a female police officer inside the car, who had attempted to retrieve the car keys.
Rolls Royce Phantom
This silver-colored Rolls Royce Ghost, which belonged to Leena Maria Paul, an actress from yesteryears involved in a multi-crore scam against Canara Bank, is now one of the numerous cars owned by Leena that lay dormant inside the police compound.
