Bollywood Superstar Aamir Khan has got a brand new Rolls Royce Ghost for himself. The ‘Perfectionist Khan’ registered his car at Satara RTO Office last Saturday and got MH 11 AX 1 as its registration number plate. The deputy officer at the RTO, V. R. Gujarathi, confirmed that the Rolls Royce was owned by the actor, and that he had requested for a number 1 registration for his car.
According to sources in the Satara RTO, the car was imported from UK by Navneet Motors for Rs 1.22 crores. Customs Duty was calculated around Rs 1.41 crore, on which the RTO charged Rs 47.57 lakhs as tax, apart from the additional Rs 3 lakhs for the requested number. Summed up, the overall cost of the Rolls Royce comes to INR 3.11 crore.
The Rolls Royce has been registered in the name of Advital Post Studios Ltd, with a Mahabaleshwar taluka address, a property that Aamir bought about five years ago. According to sources from the RTO, Satara is the preferred destination for registering cars because of the availability of getting the number 1 registration plate. Another reason is that, the city’s registration number is also MH 11.
