Producer Bhushan Kumar gifts Director Om Raut a Ferrari F8 Tributo supercar for Adipurush

We have seen many Bollywood celebrities getting cars as gifts. The latest one is T-Series owner Bhushan Kumar gifting a Ferrari F8 Tributo to Om Raut for the upcoming movie Adipurush. It is not a new car but the Ferrari was spotted with Bhushan Kumar for a few months and is registered to T-Series.

Om Raut, the director of the movie Adipurush was spotted driving the new car on the streets of Mumbai. The Ferrari F8 Tributo is one of the most desirable Ferraris of the modern era. This sleek and low-slung supercar is in a cool-looking shade of red. The heart of the Ferrari F8 Tributo is a 3.9-litre twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine, that pumps out 710 bhp of power and 770 Nm of torque, making it the fastest car in his garage.

It comes mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The RWD Ferrari F8 Tributo can do 0-100 km/h in just 2.9 seconds and 0-200 km/h in just 7.8 seconds. The car is electronically limited to a speed of 340 km/h. It came with Side Slip Control 6.1 and Ferrari Dynamic Enhancer+ that makes sure that the car is controlling the slides and you’re facing in the right direction too. The cabin of the car is much like the 458.

Ferrari replaced the F8 Tributo in September 2022 with the latest 296 GTB. The F8 Tributo came to India back in 2020 and replaced the 488 GTB. It came with a price tag of Rs 4.02 crore, ex-showroom.

Interestingly, Bhushan Kumar and Om Raut were spotted with the same Ferrari F8 Tributo earlier this year. It looks like Bhushan Kumar did not go for a new car and gifted the car that T-Series already owns.

Car gifts are to save tax

Earlier this year, Bhushan Kumar gifted a brand-new McLaren GT to Kartik Aryan. Instead of paying cash, the transactions happen in cars. This allows them to save on income tax. Since the transaction happens in crores of rupees, we are probably talking about lakhs of money saved on tax.

However, since the car is registered to T-Series, the brand will show it as a business cost and will save money on that too. This has become a common practice in the industry and there are many car gifts that we have seen in the past. Even many actors pay their team with new cars instead of money.

Bhushan Kumar also owns a range of other luxurious offerings. Among all, the red-coloured Rolls Royce Cullinan takes the centre stage as one of the daily drivers of Bhushan Kumar, who was among the first owners of this mammoth luxury SUV in the country. In addition to it, Kumar also owns a slew of other high-end cars like Ferrari 458 Italia, Bentley Flying Spur, Mercedes-Maybach S500 and an Audi R8 Spyder. His wife, Divya Khosla was recently spotted in a Mercedes-Maybach S560.
