Starr Luxury Cars – pioneering luxury mobility in Africa with Accra expansion


Starr Luxury Cars, under the visionary leadership of Founder and CEO Ikenna Ordor, is embarking on an exciting journey into Africa, with a strategic focus on the thriving market of Ghana. In a virtual interview with Nana Appiah, Ordor shared insights into the company’s origins, global expansion, and the meticulous approach to introducing luxury mobility services to the Ghanaian landscape.

The genesis of Starr Luxury Cars traces back to Ordor’s personal affinity for luxury vehicles, honed during his experiences in the hospitality and transportation sectors. Operational in the UK for almost eight years, the company has organically expanded its footprint to the USA, UAE, and various European cities. Now, Ordor is steering the wheel toward Africa, starting with Nigeria and extending the journey to the vibrant market of Ghana and subsequently, South Africa.

For Ordor, the decision to expand into Africa is not just a strategic business move; it’s a personal mission to integrate the continent into the global luxury narrative that Starr Luxury Cars has been crafting. The initial launch in Nigeria, with a focus on Lagos and Abuja, aims to offer domestic and chauffeur services, creating a seamless experience for both local and international clients.

Ghana, with its economic growth, cultural resurgence and burgeoning luxury market, has been identified by Ordor as the next logical step for Starr Luxury Cars. The fleet of luxury vehicles tailored for the Ghanaian market includes iconic models like Toyota Prados, Lexus 670 and G63s, and Range Rovers. The company’s adaptive approach will initially offer chauffeur services, with plans to introduce self-drive options as the market matures.

The launch of the Sirius membership further underscores Starr Luxury Cars’ commitment to delivering an elevated experience. This global supercar membership club allows members to enjoy exclusive perks and benefits across Starr Luxury’s international locations, catering for the needs of discerning travellers.

As the luxury car rental industry evolves in Africa, Ordor envisions a future where Starr Luxury Cars becomes synonymous with redefining the concept of car ownership. Leveraging technology, the company plans to launch an app that not only facilitates bookings, but also employs AI to enhance the client experience by anticipating their preferences and needs.

With Nigeria already operational, Starr Luxury Cars plans a deliberate entry into Ghana by the middle of next year. The company’s approach emphasises organic growth and a robust online presence through SEO, aiming to become the most searchable luxury car hire service in the region.

The recent announcement of a fundraising goal of £10million reflects Starr Luxury Cars’ ambitious plans for global expansion. Ordor sees the company not just as a luxury car rental service but as a transformative force in the industry, poised to reach unicorn status and rival the valuations of industry titans like Airbnb and Amazon.

As Starr Luxury Cars prepares to navigate the roads of Africa, it brings with it a promise of unparalleled luxury and a commitment to reshaping the narrative of mobility in the region. For investors and luxury enthusiasts alike, the arrival of Starr Luxury Cars in Ghana heralds a new era of sophistication and opulence on the roads of West Africa.
