Rolls Royces of Indian politicians: Chiranjeevi to MTB Nagaraj

Indian politics is quite twisted and corrupted. Anyone with a deep understanding of Indian Politics will know the corruption level in politics. While on papers, the politicians do not earn much but many of them are a millionaire and live a lavish life. Many politicians live a super lavish life and drive around in expensive vehicles too. Well, many of them even own Rolls Royce sedans.

MTB Nagaraj

Rolls Royce Phantom VIII

MTB Nagaraj is a well-known politician and he was an MLA from Hoskote, Karnataka. He later joined BJP to become the Minister of Excise and Minister of Municipal Administration. He remains in news for a lot of reasons. Nagaraja is very rich and owns the Rolls Royce Phantom Series VIII. It is the latest generation of Rolls Royce Phantom. That’s not it, M.T.B Nagaraj has also bought a brand-new Ferrari F8 Tributo last year during the lockdown.

Coming back to his Rolls Royce Phantom VIII, it is powered by a massive 6.75-litre V12 petrol engine that generates a maximum power of 563 Bhp and a peak torque of 900 Nm. The powerful engine can push the heavy Phantom VIII from 0-100 km/h in just 5.4 seconds. It costs close to Rs 10 crore, ex-showroom.

Pramod Madhawaraj

Rolls Royce Ghost

Pramod Madhawaraj is also a prominent politician from Karnataka who was the Minister of State for Fisheries, and Minister of Youth Empowerment and Sports. His tenure came to an end in 2018. Pramod owns the previous-generation Rolls Royce Ghost, which is an entry-level model from the British luxury car manufacturer. Even though it is an entry-level model, it costs about Rs 6 crore, ex-showroom.

Pramod uses the vehicle quite regularly even now. He is spotted in the rear seat of the beautiful Rolls Royce Ghost finished in a brilliant shade of blue and silver on the bonnet. This is also powered by the same 6.5-litre V12 twin-turbocharged petrol engine that generates a maximum power of 603 Bhp and a peak torque of 840 Nm.


Rolls Royce Phantom VII EWB

Cheeranjivi is not only a politician but also a superstar in the South Indian movie industry. He is a car enthusiast and owns several high-end vehicles. The Rolls Royce Phantom Series VII EWB came to him a few years ago. It sure is a rare car as it came with a much higher price tag compared to the Rolls Royce Phantom VIII standard edition. Because of its extended wheelbase, the Rolls Royce Phantom EWB made for a perfect vehicle, especially for someone who travels mostly in the rear seat.

This also comes powered by a 6.75-litre V12 engine that generates a maximum power of 460 Bhp and a peak torque of 720 Nm. Even this Rolls Royce gets the signature “111” registration, which is similar on all his other vehicles.
