Amitabh Bachchan owned a white Rolls Royce Phantom which was famously gifted to him by director Vidhu Vinod Chopra after the success of ‘Eklavya’ in 2007.
Last year, the famous white Rolls Royce Phantom of Amitabh Bachchan was impounded for tax default in Bengaluru. The same car was then sold to Bengaluru-based Umrah Developers, a firm owned by Yusuf Shariff. The car was never re-registered and was ultimately impounded owing to tax default. However, the developer later told that he didn’t re-register the vehicle as there was pending insurance payment that was to be made by the original owner. Now, the ultra-luxurious car has been spotted on the streets of Bengaluru. It has been seen over a year after it was impounded for tax default, insurance and the lack of other documents. Here are the details.

It was reported that this vehicle was impounded for the aforementioned reasons. However, the investigation found out that Amitabh Bachchan had sold it to someone else prior to that incident. A man named Salman Khan was the owner of this when it was impounded. However, the official documents were still in the name of Amitabh Bachchan which caused the entire confusion. It seems to be the classic case where the vehicle was already sold but the documents were not updated.
