Thembi Seete’s Car Collection
The former Rhythm Star has a million-dollar car collection that includes a Lamborghini Huracan, a Range Rover Sport, a Rolls-Royce, a Mercedes Benz E-Class, and probably other cars she hasn’t been seen in. That is why it is difficult to tell the number of cars she owns.
Although it is well known that the Rolls-Royce is a luxury automobile, the specific sum the actress paid for the Rolls-Royce model of her vehicle has not been made public. She has only ever been photographed with the car once, and she hasn’t been spotted operating it since.
Obviously, the actress’s Rolls Royce is not her favorite vehicle.
Thembi Seete reportedly received a limited edition Lamborghini Huracan as a gift from her wealthy baby daddy Collen Mashawana. The exotic car is worth an estimated R5.7 million on the market. The actress rarely appears in her Lamborghini, so she doesn’t drive it often.
Range Rover Sport
Seete bought her Range Rover Sport in 2021 for R2.8 million. She published a photo of the vehicle on social media, which allowed her followers to learn more about her ride. Her white Range Rover Sport seems to be her preferred vehicle as she often cruises in it.
Mercedes-Benz E Class
Also sitting in Thembi’s garage is a Mercedes-Benzi E Class which she bought for R1.2 million. She sometimes cruises around in her Mercedes-Benz E class.
Thembi Seete House
Actress Thembi Seete owns a palatial apartment in the suburbs of Greenstone Hill, East of Johannesburg. Her apartment sits in one of the choicest areas in the region. However, the exact year she built the house and its worth is off the media radar because she hasn’t talked about them publicly.
Based on a few pictures she has shared on her social media, one could tell that the beautiful actress lives in an ultra-modern architectural mansion that epitomizes luxury and elegance. Her kitchen is fully equipped and furnished with modern amenities.
She hasn’t fully shared other sections of her home as well as their features, though. After missing 16 levy payments, the actress almost lost her house in 2021, but she was able to resolve the situation and eventually got it back.
