The king of Indian roads

Received in Jaipur by a traditionally Indian car in the middle of a monsoon was definitely a good start to our mini holiday. The production of this unique car, the Ambassador, began in 1957 based on the old Morris Oxford Series III. Over 16% of the sales of roughly half a million Ambassador cars produced came from the Government as it had been the first choice for most politicians and bureaucrats. Top Gear crowned the Ambassador as the best taxi in 2013 but unfortunately the production of this car stopped in 2014. It is said that production of this classic has just been paused and not ceased. Time will tell.
