A photo of a gold older-generation Roll-Royce Phantom with a taxi sticker on it and a yellow number plate carried on top of a truck has astonished the internet. Shared by a Twitter user named Sirish Chandran with a caption, 'this is real', the photo has been shot in the state of Kerala.
According to a user Gautham Govind, a business tycoon in Kerala named Boby Chemmanur was going to use the luxury car as a taxi service at a resort. The car was going to be used for pick and drop of the people that would stay in the Oxygen Resorts which was owned by Boby. One could stay in the resort for Rs 25,000 for 2 days and avail the luxury of being driven in the Rolls Royce. Another user named Radhakrishnan Chonat also explained the social media audience about the purpose of the royal car on twitter that costs about 9.5 crores in India.

Really feel sorry for @RollsRoyceAsia @RollsRoyce brand. It has taken a beating after it produced a gold color car that too with a taxi plate. Really dont know the compulsion that they had to sell a car to be used as taxi.— Anindya Roychoudhury (@AnindyaRC_6775) March 3, 2020
