Dr. Osei Kwame Despite has set a new record by becoming the first Ghanaian to own a 2022 Bugatti Chiron, one of the most expensive and fastest cars produced.
The price tag for the 2022 Bugatti Chiron is speculated to be somewhere between $3 million and $4 million ( GHC19.2 million in current terms ).
The businessman, who recently celebrated his 60th birthday, exhibited his new car at the East Legon Executive Fitness Center premises, a gym where members gather regularly to perform their daily workout routines and sports tasks.
The car, which was purchased as a birthday present for himself, was driven to the premises by Kennedy Osei, his son.
The 2022 Bugatti Chiron is equipped with four turbochargers and has a power output of at least 1500 horsepower with a 16-cylinder engine.
Despite’s car collection
This Bugatti Chiron 2022 joins Despite’s huge collection of luxury vehicles from brands such as Rolls Royce, Bentley, Mercedes Benz, among other top names.
He got people talking on social media a few months ago when he released a number of vintage cars to add to his fleet.
Among the vintage vehicles in the collection, there was a yellow vehicle that was emblazoned with ‘OKD’ initials at the tailgate.
OKD is an acronym for Osei Kwame Despite, the businessman’s full name.
