India is fast becoming home to some of the most revered car marques. Car brands like Rolls Royce and Bentley have finally made it to our shores and have even managed to find a few takers among the elite few of the country. Even slightly ‘lesser’ brands, like Mercedes Benz (if at all you can think of the three-pointed star to be lesser in any sense), have managed to find space in the garages of many Indians. Some of these high-profile cars have been subjected to ill-treatment and negligence. Here is a look at 10 such mistreated Rolls Royces/Bentleys/Mercedes Benzes of India.
The last-generation Rolls Royce Phantom you see here was seized by the Delhi Police from a rented farmhouse in Asola, where South Indian actress Leena Maria Paul was arrested in a cheating case involving the Canara Bank. As you can see, the car is already on its way to deterioration.
This is businessman Mohammed Nisham’s Rolls Royce Ghost that has been seized by the cops. Actually, Nisham was stopped by a lady cop for driving his Ghost under the influence of alcohol. The lady sub-inspector entered the car to retrieve the car’s keys. However, Mohammed Nisham, who was outside his Ghost, locked the cop inside the car. No wonder, his car has been left to rot in a police compound.
The car you see above is an old Roller from Khandala, which is now in a pretty bad condition. It is said that this car belongs the te Talera’s (of Talera Ford fame). We really can’t figure out the reason for leaving a beauty in such a bad state. Sad!
Seen above is a Mercedes S500 from a couple of generations ago. As can be made out from the images the suspension of the car has given up, thereby causing the German beauty to kiss the ground. It’s really sad to see the poor condition of this luxurious chariot.
Here is another Merc that is seen gathering dust. A last-gen S-Class, this German limousine has been neglected for a while. No one knows about the car’s owner or why this stately sedan has been left to rot.
Here’s another really sad sight. This CLS63 was seen parked neglected on a street of Mumbai. As you can see, the car has been gathering dust for quite a while now. Again, no word on why the car has been left to gather dust.
Here’s yet another AMG that has been left unattended. This CL55 AMG seems to have suffered from a suspension breakdown. It’s really shocking to see such high-performance cars in such a poor shape.
Seen above is a Bentley Continental Flying Spur that has been neglected for quite a while now. As is usually the case, there’s no information on the owners or on the reason for leaving this piece of beauty to rot.
Seen above is a Bentley Continental GT that has been decaying in a police compound. It is said that this car was recovered from a gang of car thieves, who were in possession of many such costly cars.
Here is another Continental GT from the same police compound. Even this car is a part of the loot recovered from the aforementioned car thieves.
