Do you know? Currently, India has over 100 billionaires. According to Forbes magazine, the wealth of top Indian billionaires has grown up to 50% in the last 1 year.
However, we as Indians don’t believe in showing off. Why I’m saying this? Unlike other billionaires, we don’t spend money on supercars, Bugatti to be specific. That’s not all, Bugatti doesn’t offer any official showroom/service station in India.
But wait! few passionate, rich Indians care about speed and own a Bugatti model.
CJ Roy, M F Husain, JRD Tata, Mayur Shree, & Reuben Singh are Bugatti owners in India. Except for Bugatti, they own a range of sports and luxury cars, making them one of India’s most expensive car owners.
More about Bugatti, it was founded by Ettore Bugatti in 1909 with a prime focus on high-performance engineering. Resultant, Bugatti became one of the most exclusive and fastest car brands in the world.
The Bugatti made its Indian debut in 2010 with Veyron. Seeing the exclusivity and huge price tag of 16 Cr ex-showroom (Mumbai), the supercar brand didn’t receive a good response in sales. However, as discussed earlier, few speed lovers took interest and became Bugatti owners in India. So, without further ado, let’s check the India Bugatti owners with images and prices.

Except for dual-tone Bugatti Veyron 16.4 (red-black), Reuben Singh owns other sports cars like Porsche, BMW & Range Rovers. In terms of pricing, Reuben Singh should have paid within the range of 9-12 crores, if anything not customized.

Well, don’t get confused, buying a Bugatti is not as easy as you might think.
