Bollywood Toys - The Cars Connection

Expensive cars call for wealthy owners who don’t mind shelling out a few millions on a ride. The Rolls-Royces and Lamborghinis of the world are all owned by jet-setting rich folk who strive to make a statement: that they can afford to buy pricey automobiles.

Big names in Indian film industry are fast catching up with moneyed Hollywood stars in their quest to own fancy cars. We’ve compiled a list of Indian film stars who aren’t known just for their flicks but for their rides as well. Check out the goodies in the bags of the rich and famous.

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.

2. Bentley

Owner: Abhishek Bachchan

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.

3. Rolls Royce

Owner: Shah Rukh Khan

One of the biggest stars in the Indian movie industry, Shah Rukh Khan is the proud owner of a Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe. The hand-made convertible is sexy as hell and boasts the same luxury Rolls Royce is famed for incorporating in its cars. Inspired by racing yachts of the ‘30s, the coupe sports yacht-inspired wood veneering, a retractable Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament, elegant seats and a neat dash and center console.

4. Rolls Royce

Owner: Sanjay Dutt

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.

5. Maserati

Owner: Ajay Devgan

We love all things Italian and so does noted actor Ajay Devgan it appears. The Maserati Quattroporte is a four-door sedan with a low ground clearance that makes it perfect for smooth roads. Powered by a 4.0-liter 8-cylinder engine, the Quattroporte has an output of 405 bhp that’s capable of taking it to speeds of 270 km/h with a 0-100 km run time of 5.6 seconds. The interior boasts fine Poltrona leather seating, plenty of wood veneers and the latest in electronics.

6. Range Rover

Owner: Shahid Kapoor

Bollywood heartthrob, Shahid Kapoor, has a 2010 Range Rover. That’s not all; he was the first Indian customer to have one. It’s powered by a 5.0-liter V8 that delivers 510 bhp at an acceleration time of 7.2 seconds for the 0-60 mph run. Leather, wood veneers and lighting in the interior lend it the sophisticated look one would expect out of the iconic Rover.

7. Rolls Royce

Owner: Aamir Khan

Noted actor Aamir Khan is also the lucky owner of the super luxurious Rolls Royce Ghost. Soft wool carpets, full-grained leather and elegant wooden veneers adorn the interior while the exterior sports the iconic Spirit of Ecstasy logo that can be retracted to prevent theft and during the event of collisions. Despite its size, the Ghost can reach speeds of 155 mph with an acceleration time of 4.7 seconds all thanks to its turbocharged V12.

8. Lamborghini

Owner: Shilpa Shetty

Leggy beauty, Shilpa Shetty, was the lucky recipient of a Lamborghini, courtesy her hubby. The supercar is known for reaching top speeds of over 200 mph. The low rise is much sought after by the wealthy and for good reason. It’s among the few cars capable of reaching such speeds coupled with exotic exteriors and state-of-the-art cabins.

9. Land Cruiser

Owner: Salman khan 

Handsome and what really deserves to be called Dabang, Slaman Kahn is a force to be reckoned with in Bollywood. And if we talk about any car that suits his personality the best what can be better than a Land Cruiser. Yes, and he owns it too, apart from Audi A8, BMW and Mercedes-Benz that add to his home garage.

10. Mercedes Benz S-class

Owner: Hrithik Roshan

If we talk about Bollywood stars, we can't miss the mention of Hrithik Roshan, the heartthrob of Bollywood. Handsome dude owns a Mercedes Benz S-class for a staggering price tag of 2.4 crore and perhaps this one suits his personality the best.
