Reuben Singh, CEO of AlldayPA, and a Billionaire Sikh living in the UK was insulted by a racist Englishman about his turban. In response, Mr. Singh challenged the Englishman that he would match his turban’s colours with that of his Rolls Royces for a full week. And Mr. Singh actually managed to do that. Here are pictures of Mr. Singh matching 7 of his turbans with 7 Rolls Royces in different colours.
Reuben Singh, once hailed as ‘British Bill Gates’, has seen a wild swing of fortunes. Singh was in his 20s, when he set up a clothing retail chain called Miss Attitude in 1995. Even when he was studying, his business was worth over 10 million British pounds.
Changing circumstances saw him having to part with the retail chain for just 1 British pound. Mr. Singh also had to cede control of AllDayPA and was declared bankrupt in 2007. He has since bounced back and regained control of AllDayPA in 2015. The company now employs 500 people.
For long, Indian-origin businessmen have made it big in the west. Many have spent lavishly on high-end cars, such Rolls Royces and Bentleys. Last year, another Indian-origin businessman from Dubai was in the spotlight for spending nearly sixty crore rupees for a VIP registration number for his Rolls Royce.
The Rolls Royce range of super luxury cars are bespoke examples of automobile engineering combined with opulence. These cars are extremely customizable and promise their customers a very personal experience, right from the leather that’s used on the seats to the in-car bar glasses that hold their drinks. Rolls Royces are also sold in India, with the lowest priced Ghost Series II model starting from Rs. 4.67 crores, ex-showroom. The Phantom Drophead Coupe is India’s most expensive car, with an ex-showroom price of Rs. 8.38 crores. Oh, and an Ambani owns one.
