The Taj Group of Hotels Proudly Present Udaipur’s City Palace

Vintage & Classic Car Collection

Leading historical collection of 20 cars owned by Udaipur’s reigning Maharanas painstakingly resorted and on show for discerning vintage & classic car aficionados

Mumbai, June 26, 2013: The Taj Group of Hotels is proud to present Udaipur’s City Palace collection of Vintage and Classic cars to the Asian market. The Vintage & Classic Car Collection is a car collection and a museum with a difference as all of the vehicles on show have belonged to the Maharanas of Mewar both past and present. Despite some vehicles being over seventy years old, each one has been painstakingly restored so that it is in working order.

The 20 cars exhibited have all belonged to Udaipur’s previous three Maharanas, each of whom has shown himself to be an avid motoring enthusiast. The picks of the exhibits on display are the magnificent set of four Rolls-Royces. The first you see is a 1924 Rolls-Royce 20H.P. This car was awarded the ‘Best of Class Category, Vintage Classic in the Cartier Travel with Style Concours’ in November 2008. In addition, there is a 1934 Rolls-Royce 20-25H.P that was originally a limousine and was later converted into a pick-up by Maharana Bhagawat Singh mainly to transport the cricket team to and from the grounds. There is also a 1930/31 Rolls-Royce 20-25 H.P that was originally a Tourer and was later converted to Shooting Brake by Maharana Bhagawat Singh. Today the thought of shooting or bussing a cricket team in a Rolls Royce would seem a little extreme, but it is precisely this history that makes these cars so alluring. The remaining one is a 1934 Rolls Royce Phantom II that was bought by the 76th. Custodian House of Mewar, Shriji Arvind Singh Mewar of Udaipur. The Phantom II is perhaps the finest car on view and as unique a vehicle as one could find.

The garage also houses two enormous 1938 Cadillacs that are still used on special occasions and come as a pair. The four-door Convertible is the Maharana’s car, while the saloon is for the use of the Maharani, hence the curtains in the rear windows. Family crests adorn the rear doors of both Cadillacs, adding a further royal touch to these two majestic automobiles.

Of the remainder of the collection the bright red 1946 MG-TC convertible stands out. For lovers of sports cars seeing this speed machine is a must. Most of the other cars are rather more sedate, however. Yet vehicles such as the 1930 Ford-A Convertible or the Vauxhall-12 are no less remarkable, if only because they have so much more panache than the cars now produced by those companies. They are delightful examples of the golden age of motoring.

Shyam Kaikini, General Manager, Taj Lake Palace states; “The Taj Group of Hotels is so pleased to introduce The Vintage & Classic Car Collection in Udaipur to the Asian market. These incredibly well kept historical cars form part of Udaipur’s proud history as the leading Rajputana state during the time of the Maharanas. Each car was owned and used by an Udaipur Maharana, which makes them of particular interest to car aficionados across the world and particularly in Asia, where there has been an enormous growth in vintage & classic cars in recent years.”

The Vintage & Classic Car Collection is housed in the original former Mewar State Motor Garage, a glorious setting for such a fine assortment of vehicles. The bougainvillea – coated Garden Hotel and Restaurant, a property of HRH Group of Hotels, Udaipur, is also contained within the garage’s grounds. The semi-circular motor garage with its forecourt is housed within a greater courtyard, creating a pleasant hideaway from the bustle of the streets. One of the original Shell petrol pump is not only still standing, but also in a usable condition. The motor garage itself was built at a time when the only cars in town belonged to the Mewar State Motor Garage and the present day surroundings make this garage as wonderfully stylish as it must always have been.

Classic Cars

M.G. TC 1946
After the war, Morris resumed car production in 1945 but concentrated their efforts on the new MG-TC which was a single two-seater car powered with 1250 c.c. four cylinder engine with twin S.U. carburetor.

1959 Morris – Minor 1000 (Traveller)
The Morris Minor was designed by Sir Alex Issigonis who later became famous for his creation of the Mini. Although it was designed for the mass market, production only ever reached 1.2 million between 1948 and 1971 when manufacturing stopped.

1924 Rolls Royce
Between 1908 and 1940 the Rolls – Royce car was made in their Derby factory where the car itself was designed by Royce.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Mumbai, Maharashtra. Top Entertainment Pvt. Ltd. is proud to announce the release of HUMMINGBIRD on June 28, 2013.

The film has been brought to India by Tanweer Group & distributed by Top Entertainment Pvt. Ltd.

Joey (Jason Statham), an ex-Special Forces soldier returns to London from a traumatic tour of duty in Afghanistan. On the run from the military court martial, he faces another war of life in London as he is homeless and damaged, trapped in the city`s criminal underworld.

Joey assumes a new identity with the aid of Sister Cristina (Agata Buzek), a young nun who works at an inner-city parish. Struggling to keep hold of his integrity, Joey transforms into an avenging angel.

But when he learns his missing girlfriend was brutally murdered by a ruthless kingpin, he risks everything for revenge, hurtling down a deadly path that promises to destroy him completely, or be his final and only hope at redeeming himself…

Knight said the film was an attempt to show audiences that there are people in all circumstances trying to do good where they can, with Statham’s character ensuring he helps people living on the street when his luck turns.”I think he’s Robin Hood … and he’s trying to do the right thing and he’s trying to get justice,” Knight said.”In a world where sometimes if you’re weak then you can’t get justice, he’s someone who uses his strength to get that.”
