India’s Richest Politician M.T.B. Nagaraj And His Cars: From Rolls Royce to Ferrari [Video]

MTB Nagaraj car collection

When it comes to wealth, power, and automotive passion, few names in Indian politics stand out like M.T.B. Nagaraj. The BJP member and Minister of Small Scale Industries and Municipal Administration of Karnataka belongs to Bangalore. At the moment, he currently holds the title of being one of the richest politicians in the country. A few months ago, a video showing his massive and ultra-expensive luxury car collection during the Ayudha Puja was shared online.

The video of M.T.B. Nagaraj, along with his wife and relatives, performing Ayudha Puja was shared on YouTube by Lion TV Kannada. For those who may not be aware, Ayudha Puja or weapons Puja is the Hindu ceremony that is performed on the ninth day of Navratri.

This is done to pay respect to the tools and weapons which are utilized by people on a day-to-day basis. Now not a lot of people, especially politicians, use weapons nowadays. So because of this, they perform the Puja of their cars. These cars are considered as their tools which are used daily.

In this short video clip, the Ayudha Puja takes place inside the residence of M.T.B. Nagaraj. In the video, a slew of luxury and regular cars were seen adorned with huge garlands. There were also coconuts and a few other offerings in front of these cars. The list of cars included in this video was a current-generation Land Rover Range Rover SUV parked next to a Rolls Royce Phantom VIII. There was also a Ferrari and a Defender.

Nagaraj’s Ferrari

The only supercar in M.T.B. Nagaraj’s collection is his Ferrari F8 Tributo. This particular supercar is finished in the lovely shade of brilliant blue. It is a unique choice of color as generally, most buyers in India opt for the popular Rosso Corsa red shade for their Ferraris.

This mid-engined masterpiece comes powered by a potent 3.9-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine. The motor churns out an exhilarating 710 bhp and 770 Nm of torque. Currently, the Ferrari F8 Tributo holds a price tag of around Rs 4.02 crore.

Land Rover Range Rover

In addition to Rolls Royce, Nagaraj’s collection also includes an all-new Range Rover. It appears to be an Autobiography LWB variant; however, we are not sure about the exact variant. What is confirmed is that it is finished in the lovely shade of Lantau Bronze.

This British luxury SUV is offered with a number of powertrain options. However, the most common ones are a 4.4-liter petrol engine and a 3.0-liter diesel turbocharged unit that produces 346 bhp and 700 Nm of peak torque. A video showing the politician taking delivery of this car was shared online.

Land Rover Defender

Nagaraj’s garage also consists of the most popular and hyped SUV of India, the revered Land Rover Defender. This particular Defender appears to be finished in the Gondwana Stone metallic color. The 2024 Land Rover Defender comes available in both 3-door and 5-door configurations.

It also comes with a 2.0-liter or 3.0-liter petrol engine. There is also a bigger 5.0-liter V8 option as well. Popular Defender owners in India include Sunny Deol, Kareena Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan, Baba Ramdev, Neha Kakkar, and a lot of other popular celebrities.

Porsche Cayenne

The video also shows M.T.B. Nagaraj’s Porsche Cayenne luxury SUV as well. This particular SUV is finished in the lovely shade of white. While the specific variant remains unspecified. We can inform that the Cayenne of this generation came powered by a potent 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine. This motor is capable of producing 340 bhp and 450 Nm of torque.

Toyota Fortuner & Innova Crysta

In addition to his exotic fleet, Nagaraj also owns vehicles like the Toyota Fortuner and Innova Crysta. These quintessential models, known for their solid build quality and low maintenance costs, are a part of his collection. He owns a pre-facelift Toyota Fortuner Alpha variant and not one but two Innova Crysta MPVs. One is a pre-facelift variant and the other is mid-life facelift variant.

Maruti Omni

Lastly, M.T.B Nagaraj’s collection is rounded up by a Maruti Omni. An iconic van that has left a huge mark on Indian automotive history. Most likely this Omni is only taken out during Ayudha Puja. We are guessing that it has some relation with the Karnataka politician as it has been in his collection for a very long time.
