Hrithik Roshan just turned 42, and here’s how he treated himself. The Bollywood A-Lister, and a car nut, bought a Rolls Royce Ghost Series II. The man later got into this ultra luxurious car and took a ride around town with his kids in two. The car’s estimated to have cost the actor about 7 crore rupees, which means that it’s been extensively customized. The stock version, starts at 4.5 crore rupees.

The car can hit an electronically limited top speed of 250 Kph, while the 0-100 Kph run takes 4.9 seconds.
Ferrari 360 Modena
The Ferrari 360 Modena is the common thread that connects cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar and Bollywood heart throb Hrithik Roshan. The supercar derives its name from Modena, an Italian city where Enzo Ferrari was born. The 360 Modena is a twin seater with drop dead gorgeous looks. A 3.6 liter V8, naturally aspirated petrol engine nestles under the car’s hood. Armed with a 400 Bhp output, the engine propels the car to 100 Kph from standstill in just 4.8 seconds. Top speed is rated at a little over 300 Kph.
The Maserati Spyder is another Italian stallion in Hrithik Roshan’s car collection, and is a very rare car on Indian roads. Also called the Tipo, the Spyder is a convertible whose soft top retracts into the boot at the touch of a button. The car borrows its V8 naturally aspirated petrol engine from Ferrari. The motor displaces 4.2 liters and delivers outputs of 385 Bhp and 450 Nm. Meant to be a grand tourer, the rear wheel driven Spyder does the 0-100 Kph sprint in 5.2 seconds while top speed is rated at a heady 280 Kph.
