The car was gotten in 2018 and was revealed when he decided to wear a purple dress which is the same color as the car. It has the following features, with its 6.0 liter, twin-turbocharged W12 engine, a step-change in technology and a truly stunning design language, the Continental GT is unmatched in its class. This Bentley GT coupé is the quintessential grand tourer – phenomenally powerful, beautifully designed and exquisitely crafted.

This spacious car was gotten after he signed his endorsement deal with Globacom Nigeria. The Toyota Prado is a large SUV-type wagon with a seven-seat cabin, proven reliability, and peerless service back-up. For a big 4WD vehicle it is very comfortable as a day-to-day family car, but it is also built extra tough and is one of the best choices for long outback trips. The 2.8-litre turbo-diesel is now the only engine option, with the more powerful, but thirstier, V6 petrol deleted from the range in November 2017 due to a lack of customer demand. It uses 7.9 liters/100km with the manual gearbox, and only marginally more with the automatic. In real-world driving expect to use about 10.5 liters/100km with either gearbox.

Toyota 4runner N12million

It fits the mold of the modern mid-size SUV in size (two rows of seats), horsepower (270), and cargo volume (above average for its class), but from behind the wheel, it’s nothing like the mainstream family haulers. This body-on-frame off-roader features control feels that’s better suited to rock-crawling than mall-crawling. But if the gravel roads of your adventures lead to rocks, ruts, or mud, then the 4Runner is your winch line to a better life.

The 4Runner’s 4.0-liter V-6 engine and five-speed automatic transmission can team with rear-, four-, or all-wheel drive. Entry-level SR5 models are rear-wheel drive, while all other trims except the tip pity-top Limited model come with selectable, part-time four-wheel drive.
