Shilpa Shetty spotted in a second-hand Bentley Flying Spur [Video]

Recently, Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty was seen leaving the airport premises in a white Bentley Flying Spur. Many believed that Shilpa had purchased the Flying Spur as her second Bentley, after her husband Raj Kundra gifted her a white Continental GT in 2020. However, Shilpa is only using the Bentley Flying Spur, which is registered in the name of a Telangana-based legal services company, Quislex Legal Services Private Limited, and is the second owner of the car.

Companies and private car buyers registering their vehicles in union territories like Puducherry to minimize the road tax payments is a legal process if they have a base or an office located in that union territory. However, it is unclear whether Quislex Legal Services Private Limited or Shilpa Shetty has a base in Puducherry. Many people attempt to evade taxes by registering their luxury vehicles in union territories, even if they do not reside there.

This 2016 Bentley Flying Spur is equipped with a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine, delivering 500 PS of power and 650 Nm of torque, which it shares with other Bentley models like the Continental GT and Bentayga SUV. The engine is paired with an 8-speed automatic gearbox and an all-wheel-drive system. The Flying Spur is the only four-door luxury sedan from Bentley around the world since the discontinuation of the Mulsanne.

Shilpa Shetty owns a few luxury cars

While Shilpa may not own this Bentley Flying Spur, she does own a Bentley Continental GT gifted by her husband Raj Kundra on her birthday in 2020. Additionally, she owns several other luxury cars and SUVs, such as Lamborghini Aventador, BMW i8, Range Rover Vogue, BMW X5, and a BMW 7-Series.

Shetty was recently spotted in a brand-new Mercedes-AMG G63 SUV. Raj Kundra’s company has registered the G63. Recent details from the RTO Parivahan app reveal that the new Mercedes-AMG G63 was purchased in August 2022. The SUV can be seen in a video driving on the busy streets of Mumbai. Additionally, Kundra’s SUV is painted in a rare and distinctive shade of Rose Gold, which is not often seen in an SUV of this caliber.

Shetty one of the many Bollywood celebrities who own used cars. Used cars typically depreciate significantly, making them considerably less expensive than their brand-new counterparts. For instance, opting for a pre-owned Bentley Continental GT can save a new owner at least one crore when compared to purchasing a new vehicle.

Although luxury cars tend to depreciate the most in the market, used luxury cars typically experience a lower percentage of depreciation, which leads to a better market value for the used car. As the depreciation is less, the used car retains its value for a longer duration in comparison to a new car.
