As we stated before in the very first article when this blog kicked off, every topic goes, we are not choosy. Be it serious scandals or just having some fun. It's all here in bure kabisa!
Back in the day when we were growing up, the must have 'super car' for the rich elite was a Peugeot 504. Most of these cars were bought brand new at Marshalls since the mitumba concept had not fully evolved. Then came the famous Musso from Ssangyong of South Korea. After the dazzling Musso, came the Toyota Prado. I can tell you many local songs have singers boasting about this car! After the Prado came the Toyota VX also called Amazon in UK. This VX giant was in many models like the in the form of Lexus 470 and it's still a very popular car with politicians due to it's durability and versatility in handling local terrain. But nowadays, young rich Kenyans who are minting millions in the I.T industry and stock markets prefer the sleek BMW x5, Mercedes ML, BMW 5 and 7 series and Mercedes E class. Many wealthy Kenyans of Asian origin are fond of the H3 Hummer and this is evident when you drive around their main places of work concentrated in the industrial area. But the question is this, which is the car of choice in year 2010 for the seriously minted Kenyans? These reclusive Kenyans are largely unknown but super wealthy and reside in posh areas like Mzima Springs, Lavi, Karen, Muthaiga, Runda, Kitisuru, Nyali-Msa and Gigiri. Well, I have done some serious research and I can conclusively reveal that the car of choice for these multi-millionaires is BMW X6. Please don't ask me why. All I know is that a Mitumba BMW x6 will set you back around Ksh 10m. But many of the x6 coming in Kenya are mostly brand new and sourced from UK, South Africa and Germany so their cost is higher considering these cars are air-lifted here in Kenya. Don't forget that the good old tax-man at KRA has a big appetite for such machines!
