The RR badge is red. Once the two founders (in 1927?) died, they changed the badge colors to black.

If you look closely you'll see three sets of interlocking leaf springs. This was probably used to cushion the hard ride of the solid wheels for royalty. Awesome design!

ROLLS ROYCE PHANTOM II
ROLLS ROYCE PHANTOM II USED IN OCTOPUSSY WAS PURCHASED BY ARVINDSINGJI UDAIPUR FROM INDUMATI RAJE OF KOLHAPUR ON THE 27TH SEPTEMBER 1971. THE CHASIS NO, I THINK IS, YR 181 I WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR LOCATING THIS RR AND ACCOMPANIED MY OLD CRICKETING FRIEND ARVINDSINGHJI TO KOLHAPUR FOR THE PURCHASE OF THIS CAR. I DROVE THIS RR ALL THE WAY FROM KOLHAPUR TO BOMBAY WITH ONLY 45 MINUTES STOP OVER IN POONA. THE ONLY MALFUNCTION DURING THIS JOURNEY WAS HORN FUSE BLOWING OUT. ALL THE FUSES BEING THOUGHTFULLY AND NEATLY PROVIDED UNDER THE BONNET, REPLACING THE FUSE WAS A 2 MINUTE JOB !! FOR THE FIRST TIME WE ALSO SAW CHATRAPATI'S MAYBACH. AS PER A BOOK ON RRs THE TITLE I FORGET, ORIGINALLY IT WAS THE BOMBAY/KOLHAPUR RUN BY THE FIRST RR IN INDIA WHICH PROVED SO SUCCESSFUL AND MADE RRs SO POPULAR WITH PRINCES. THIS IS A 7 SEATER LIMOUSINE BY WINDOVERS. EVERY TIME I VISIT MY FRIEND ARVINDSINGHJI, I MAKE IT A POINT TO SEE THIS MAGNIFICNT PHANTOM II. ARVIND APTE
