Did you know that in the older times, the most expensive and the most famous Rolls Royce car belonged to the Nizam of Hyderabad? And wonder what he used to do with the royal car? Hyderabad Nizam Mukarram Jah used his Rolls Royce cars pick up garbage across the city. Yes, you might wonder on that but it’s true. Here’s the full story.
One day during his visit to London, Nawab Of Hyderabad was walking in casual dress in Bond Street. He saw a Rolls Royce showroom and went inside to inquire about the Price and Features etc. of their cars.
Considering him a just another Poor Indian citizen, showroom salesmen insulted him and almost showed him the way out of the showroom. After this insult, Nawab Of Hyderabad came back to his Hotel room and asked his servants to call the showroom that Nawab Of Hyderabad is interested in purchasing their few Cars.
After few hours Nawab reached the Rolls Royce showroom again but with his full astonishing royal manner and in his royal costume. Until he reached the showroom there was already red carpet on the floor and all the salesmen were bent with respect. The Nawab purchased all the six cars that they had at showroom at that time and paid full amount with delivery costs.
After reaching India, Nawab ordered municipal department to use all those six Rolls Royce cars for cleaning and transporting city’s waste. World’s number one Rolls Royce cars were being used for transportation of City’s waste, the news spread all over the world rapidly and the reputation of Rolls Royce Company was in drains.
Whenever someone used to boast in Europe or America that he owned a Rolls Royce, people used to laugh saying, “which one? The same that is used in India for carrying the waste of the City?”
Due to such reputation damages, sales of Rolls Royce dropped rapidly and revenue of company owners started falling down. Then they sent a Telegram to the king in India for apologies and requested to stop transportation of waste in Rolls Royce cars. Not only this but they also offered Six new cars to Nawab free of cost..!!
