Who was she!? Sportpesa CEO reveals his very ‘first love’

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.

What’s better than this TBT of Sportpesa CEO Ronald Karauri?

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.
