A popular U.S based Nigerian car dealer, Obi Okeke, aka Doctor Bugatti just bought Hollywood actor, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Bugatti Veyron for a whopping $2.5 million.
According to reports, Arnold’s 2015 Veyron, which goes 0-60 mph in 2.5 secs, only had about 1,000 miles on it.
The buyer is Obi Okeke a.k.a Doctor Bugatti, the same Nigerian luxury car dealer who sold Floyd Mayweather a similar whip. Okeke plans to resell it.
Obi Okeke first came to the United States as a 5-year-old refugee during the Nigerian Civil War in 1967. His mother, from Ohio, was able to leave the country with him, but his father, who was born in Nigeria, stayed to fight.
Over four decades later, Okeke, now 53, is a fixture in the luxury automobile industry, dealing in cars that cost millions and selling to clients like Floyd Mayweather.
After that first move to the US, Okeke returned with his family to Nigeria, where he stayed until attending a private high school in Switzerland.
And that’s when he discovered great cars.
