The real story behind the ‘Made-in-Pakistan’ Rolls Royce Phantom [Video]

Rolls Royce is the ultimate car brand that any car lover would want to choose and buy. Since the Rolls Royce cars cost a lot, replica models have become quite common, especially in developing countries. Pakistan, our neighbouring country does not have an official Rolls Royce dealership so people import cars privately. For automobile lovers, who cannot import cars privately because of money constraints get a replica model. Here is one such expert who is converting mass-segment cars to Rolls Royce replicas.

The video by Car Kid shows the replica of the Rolls Royce Phantom in detail. The workshop is located in Gujranwala, Pakistan and everything here is made by hand. According to the information in the video, the workshop charges about Rs 7 lakh in Indian Currency for the conversion. This does not include the donor car.

The replica model in the video is based on a Toyota Crown Mark-II. But you can give any sedan car for the conversion. As the workshop extends the chassis to make it long and adds the Rolls Royce Phantom look, the conversion can be done with any sedan car.

The body of the Rolls Royce is made by hand. It is made up of steel and is hand beaten into the shape. The video claims that the person who makes these cars has not ever seen a Rolls Royce and does not have the dimensions of the vehicle either. He simply looked at the pictures and used his own measurements to make the vehicle.

The front looks quite similar to the Rolls Royce and it gets the grille from narrow steel pipes while the emblem of Rolls Royce, which is also called the Spirit of Ecstacy is also completely made by hand.

Gets suicide doors

The replica model gets suicide doors and in the new versions, these doors can be controlled through buttons as well. Parts like the wheels, headlamps and ORVMs are all generic and are sourced from the open market. The tail lamps are from Honda N1, which looks similar to the Rolls Royce Phantom.

Since is based on another car and the chassis has been extended to add length, the car gets long overhands and a short wheelbase. It sure looks quite weird and the more you look at it, the weirder it gets.

Nonetheless, the cabin of the converted Rolls Royce Phantom gets red-coloured leather. But the cabin is nowhere near the original vehicle. You do get features like a starlit roof and leather but the cabin is not luxurious at all. We are not sure how it drives. Mechanically, the car remains the same. There are no changes done to the engine.
