Mandhatasinh Jadeja is one determined man who did his best to bring his grandfather’s 1934 Phantom II 40/50 HP Continental “All-Weather Convertible” back home. The car is a one-off and it was specially made for the Maharaja of Rajkot, but it was sold to a British collector in 1968. Since then, the car has been in many hands, but now Mandhatasinh Jadeja, the grandson of the original owner of this Rolls, has finally managed to bring the beauty back. It is now part of the Maharaja: The Splendour of India’s Royal Courts exhibition, at the Art Gallery in Ontario, Canada.
And now for the shocking part of the news. Back in 2009 the was considered to be one of the most expensive cars in the world, as it sold for about €10 million (over $13 million). But in only one year its value dropped more dramatically than anyone could ever expect: Mandhatasinh Jadeja bought it now for $850,000! Unbelievable!
