1. Rolls Royce
Owner: Amitabh Bachchan
While we know Amitabh Bachchan mainly for his many blockbusters, he’s also known to own some fancy cars. But the Rolls Royce Phantom in his garage isn’t something he bought: he was presented with it. The Phantom, one of the most luxurious of vehicles, boasts plush interiors fit for royalty. Each leather piece is precisely cut with a laser and is hand-stitched to perfection. The wood veneers are crafted in up to 28 layers with each grain book matched. The latest in electronics has been installed to give you the entertainment of your life. It’s powerful too, equipped with a massive V12 that produces 453 hp.

Amitabh’s son, Abhishek Bachchan, isn’t far behind his dad who presented his offspring with a Rs 2 crore Bentley Continental Flying Spur. The grand touring coupe is powered by a 6.0-liter twin turbo W12 that churns out a hefty 560 hp. Chrome bezelled dials coupled with touchscreen technology in the interior make it one fine piece of work. And get this: the Continental GT even has a massage system you can use after a long day at work. Couple that with wood veneers and plush leather seats and you’ve got yourself one of the most awesome cars available.

This next Rolls isn’t exactly movie star Sanjay Dutt’s; it was actually a gift from him to his wife. A lucky woman she is to drive around in a Ghost and we envy her wholeheartedly. The Ghost is the younger sister to the Phantom and costs a little less. But there’s no compromise on luxury and performance with chrome door handles and frosted lamps in the interior as well as deep carpeting and four-zone automatic AC. Buyers can also customize their Ghosts with individual lounge seating, a cool box and veneered picnic tables.
