The Vintage & Classic Car Collection is a landmark in the city of Udaipur ever since it was inaugurated in February 2000. The grand limousines and cars showcased in the Collection belong to the House of Mewar and are still in perfect running condition. Visitors are privy to the display of the magnificent Rolls-Royce, 1939 Cadillac open convertibles, rare Mercedes models, 1936 Vauxhall and 1937 Opel models. The Collection has been curated for the benefit of vintage car-lovers from India and all over the world; it is probably the only collection of its kind in India about which the global and indian press has written reams. Awe-struck visitors to the Collection are narrated innumerable stories and anecdotes about the Maharanas of Mewar and their preferred Rolls-Royce or Mercedes customised at their request.
The collection is housed in the original Palace Garage, a glorious setting for such a unique and remarkable collection of golden oldies. The semi-circular garage with its forecourt is housed within a greater courtyard, creating a pleasant hideaway from the bustle of the streets. One of the original Burmah Shell petrol pumps is not only still standing, but also in a usable condition. The garage itself was built at a time when the only cars in town belonged to the Royal Family and the present-day surroundings make this garage as wonderfully stylish as it must always have been.
The bougainvillea-coated Garden Hotel and Restaurant, a Royal Retreat of HRH Group of Hotels, Udaipur, is also housed within the elegant complex. Garden Hotel derives its name from the sprawling Sajjan Bagh gardens that adorn this green-section of the heritage-city.
