The luxurious GT is available with two engine options in the market. there is a 4.0-litre twin turbo V8 engine that produces a decent 521 bhp of power and 680 Nm of torque. The second and a bit maniac engine option is a 6.0-litre twin-turbo W12 engine that produces a massive 626 bhp of power and 820 Nm of torque.
The Audi A8L is a car that is owned by several celebrities in the B-Town. The Bachchan family also is one of them and owns Audi’s flagship luxury sedan in a white paint shade.

Lexus LX 570
The LX 570 is the flagship SUV of Lexus in India and Amitabh acquired this massive machine in October last year. At that time, it had a price tag of around Rs 2.32 crore, ex-showroom. The Lexus LX 570 is based on the Toyota Land Cruiser but gets better luxury treatment. The SUV is powered by a turbocharged 5.7-litre V8 petrol engine that produces 362 Bhp power along with 530 Nm of torque and it comes mated to an 8-speed sequential shifting automatic gearbox which sends power to all four wheels.
The flagship Mercedes S500 (W222) is seen mostly chauffeuring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and her daughter with the junior Bachchan. The white S500 used by the former beauty-queen-turned-actress is the top-of-the-line model on sale in India. The luxury limo is powered by a 4.7-litre V8 petrol engine that sends 453 bhp and 700 Nm of peak torque to the rear wheels.
Big B is also the proud owner of Porsche’s mid-engined sports car. Thankfully, it is one of the older generation cars, so it still uses a flat six engine instead of the current turbo flat fours that sound like ones powering hatchbacks. Mr. Bachchan senior owns the Cayman S model which produces 320 bhp and 370 Nm of torque from its 3.4-litre NA flat six engine. The sports car is known for its brilliant handling and performance and comes with either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed PDK automatic gearbox.
The Mini Cooper became a part of the Bachchan family garage when Abhishek gifted it to his father sometime back. The car’s number plate ends with the numbers 2882, which is a significant date in the life of the Bachchan patriarch. Mr. Bachchan almost lost his life when filming the movie Coolie and was revived by doctors on the 2nd of August, 1982. The Mini celebrates Amitabh Bachchan’s second lease of life.
With all these high end and exotic automobiles in their home, the Toyota Camry definitely looks a bit out of place, though it is the flagship sedan of Toyota. However, this white Toyota Camry is the choice of a ride of Jaya Bachchan, who uses it often when she attends sessions in the Parliament. The reliability factor of Toyota along with its comfortable rear seats and plush ride quality are some of the reasons why it is the choice of ride for the female head of the family.
