Ginimbi's Rolls-Royce Wraith

The car has a monstrous 6,592 cc engine, V12 twin turbo and 8 speed automatic transmission. The name Wraith comes from an old Scottish word meaning image of a Ghost or Spirit.[3]

Ginimbi's Rolls Royce Wraith was involved in a head-on collision with a Honda Fit, veering off the road to hit a tree and bursting into flames almost instantly. Ginimbi’s friends, Michell Amuli popularly known as Moana, Limumba Karim and Alicha Adams were burnt beyond recognition in the accident.[4]

Following the accident, enraged Zimbabweans rushed to the Rolls-Royce page, demanding answers as to how the Wraith, an epitome of safety and class, particularly among the few affluent Zimbabweans, could not have sustained the crash.[5]

Ginimbi bought the Bentley Continental GT W12 (2020 model) in 2020.

Specs

According to the Bentley site, the vehicle boasts a new 6.0-litre W12 engine and an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission, for smooth, fast and efficient gear changes.

The Bentley can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds (0 to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds) and deliver a phenomenal top speed of 207 mph (333 km/h).

Four driving modes are accessible at the turn of a dial. Comfort optimises the chassis and drivetrain for luxurious cruising, while Sport mode retunes the engine for a more dynamic response – with the variable exhaust valve adjusting the character of the exhaust note to match. A Custom mode allows you to configure your own settings for future use.[6]

The Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (Zimra) pounced on his home and seized his Bentley Continental GT motor vehicle after they claimed its import duty was irregular. Police officers from the Vehicle Theft Squad besieged his Domboshava residence on January 11, 2020 and informed him that they had instructions to seize the vehicle as it had not paid the requisite customs duty and value-added tax (VAT).

He responded with a court application seeking an “interdict prohibiting the first respondent (Zimra) and her officers from seizing or embargoing my vehicle on the basis that the duty paid was insufficient without first seeking an order from this court to that effect.”[7]

Ginimbi also owned other Bentleys. Here is the list of Bentleys owned by Ginimbi:
