Vintage Cars

Reviving the memory of a bygone era when automobiles enjoyed the pride of place among the royals and the rich, more than 100 vintage cars rallied on the roads of the historic Pink City on Sunday i.e March 03, 2013.

These classic beauties dating back as far as 1923 charmed hundreds of onlookers as they travelled from Jai Mahal Palace to Castle Kanota and back to the city covering a distance of 70 km on a clear, sunny day.

The rally was organized by Rajputana Automotive Sports Car Club in association with Rajasthan state tourism department and Audi, Jaipur.

The Vintage & Classic Car rally has attracted a lot of interest and this year a record number of cars participated in the event. The awareness created by the rally has helped Jaipur become one of the prominent destinations for restoration of old cars.
