SpoSportpesa CEO Captain Ronald Karauri is a man whose life I envy. No lies. The Sportpesa CEO might have had a tough year with his company falling foul of some government regulations this year but his life is still attractive.
The man who is known to have lavish tastes is well-known but even a man like him still has some first loves, things that might not cost an arm and leg (I am talking about a billionaires perspective. Like I know!) that still draws nostalgia from him.
On Thursday, being a Throwback Thursday TBT, Karauri went back in time to his very first love, a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VII.
‘My first love ❤️ #TBT.’
The businessman captioned an image of the silver beast, registration number KAW 777U.
One of Karauri’s expensive hobbies is, of course, driving and buying high-end cars. He is also rumored to own his dream car (in 2018), a Bentley Continental GT Speed, a Rolls-Royce and others. Karauri’s lavish parking lot now houses a BMW 3 series and a Mercedes Maybach S600. Even former Classic105 host agreed with him writing, EVo 7!!!my favorite car to date.
An Evolution VII was used on the film 2 Fast 2 Furious as the car driven by Paul Walker’s character. He drove a yellow Evolution 7 which was lightly modified performance-wise but heavily modified when it came to the aesthetics.
However, one of the producers claimed that they used a 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer O.Z. Rally edition instead of an Evo as the car used for production and stunt scenes
