As someone once said, a four-wheeler/ car is the only asset that has a depreciating value and still has an emotional connect with a human. This very emotional connect brings a lot of connection with one’s car to a tune that even a single scratch on car feels like a cut on the body (okay, I did exaggerate it), but that’s how we think of our cars, no matter what is the price of the car. Even a Rs 5 Lakh has an equal emotional connect as a Rs 7 Crore Rolls-Royce.
Now imagine the pain of the owner of a brand new Rolls-Royce Ghost worth Rs 7 Crore who banged his prized uber-luxury sedan on the very first morning drive in Mumbai. As per a report, a brand new Rolls-Royce Ghost with a temporary registration number plate from Pondicherry was out on its first early morning drive and crashed in Juhu, Mumbai near the Citizen Hotel Juhu, which sits on the beach.

The Ghost swayed over a footpath near a bus top and hit a low wall damaging the front bumper in the process. There might be some damage underneath the body too. A crowd of curious bystanders and police arrived in no time, all awaiting the tow vehicle.
As evident in the images, the tow truck tried hard to pull the Rolls-Royce using a winch and a lot of skill. The sedan was in such an angle that it became difficult to load the vehicle on the truck without damaging it even further. With the help of public and police, the vehicle was finally loaded on the truck.
Chances are the owner bought the Ghost from Navnit Motors, Mumbai, one of the only two Roll-Royce dealers in India and was way back home later in the day. There are no further details in this case and we will keep you updated as and when and development takes place.
