According to the latest Forbes ranking, Nigerians can boast of having up to eight billionaires. But we all know that the number of billionaires in Nigeria is way more than that. The truth of the matter is there are many billionaires who have chosen to keep low profile.
In this post, we would talk about the various cars you’re likely to see in a Nigerian billionaire’s garage. There is a tendency for majority of the people under the wealthy umbrella to drive the best of cars. They often go for comfort, and that’s why you see most of them owning luxurious vehicles that runs in multi-millions of Naira.
Below are the vehicles you’re likely to see in their garages.

The Rolls Royce brand has proven to be one of the most outstanding luxury brand in the world. Emirs, Obas, business moguls, sportsmen, top rated artistes, pastors and politicians are likely to have one of these in their garage.
If you’re not wealthy, you’re likely not to own this car in your lifetime because it’s not for the common man. Most of the wealthy people we have in Nigeria identifies with this brand. They usually have one of these in their fleet.
