Remember the last scene in Pretty Woman where Edward woos Vivan with a bouquet of roses, riding in the white stretch limo? Looking for a limo deal? It’s minus Richard Gere but if you want to pamper someone, a Chrysler 300 stretch limousine is now available in Delhi and Mumbai from the car rental firm Eco Rent A Car.

Manufactured in the US, the 28-ft-long luxury vehicle can seat up to eight passengers and comes equipped with an entertainment system, a starlight-mirrored ceiling, a fridge and an electric privacy divider. A four-hour ride is priced at Rs 30,000, and a ‘Surprise Drive’ deal is also available. Rajesh Loomba, Managing Director of the company, was gifted one such limo drive by his friend in New York on his birthday. “The car itself, and the feeling it generated in terms of style and pizzazz”, made him feel like a celebrity, and bring the idea home.

He says this could be used as a corporate incentive – “if your sales team performs well, you give them a limo ride. Or as a photo-op.” Recently Estee Lauder placed a limo outside their showroom and it did generate a lot of buzz. Soon Hyderabad, Bangalore, Pune, Chandigarh and Chennai will have this facility.
