The Taj Group of Hotels structured an occasion about the Palace anthology of Vintage automobiles of the city of Udaipur, to the Asian automobile bazaar during the first week of August 2013. This show was all about Classic cars that belonged to the Maharanas of Mewar, the preceding and current. Even though most of the cars were over 70 years old, each one of them was completely restored. Which is not a very easy job to do as everyone knows.

All the 20 cars that were on display belonged to the previous Maharajas of Udaipur, where all of them had a soft spot for automobiles. The main attraction of those 20 cars was the 4 Rolls-Royces. One Rolls Royce was a 1924 20 H.P. This classic car was awarded the title of ‘the best of Class category, vintage classic in the cartier travel with style concours’ in the month of November in 2008. Apart from this award winning Rolls-Royce, there was another 1934 20-25 H.P, which was actually a limousine, now a pick-up changed in later years, by Maharana Bhagwat Singh, chiefly to carry the cricket players from the ground to the palace. There was also another car the Rolls-Royce 20-25 H.P from 1930/31 which was also converted to shooting brake by Maharana Bhagwat Singh, this car was actually a Tourer. The last of the 4 cars was the Rolls Royce Phantom 2 from 1934, this car was brought by Shriji Arvind Singh Mewar, the 76th custodian of the House of Mewar. It was probably the finest Rolls Royce out of the 4 which were on exhibition.

The other classic cars include a 1964 Buick, two 1938/39 Cadillacs, 1930 Ford-A Convertible, a 1946 M.G TC convertible, 1959 Morris-Minor 1000 (Traveller), and a Vauxhall 12. All these cars are parked and maintained in the Mewar Motor Garage, which is a very excellent background for these magnificent vintage cars.
