Ambanis buy 2 new Rolls Royces for Diwali: One for Mumbai and another for Ahmedabad

The Ambani garage keeps on growing with super-expensive cars. With the Diwali festival around the corner, Ambani has added two brand-new Rolls Royce cars to his garage. One of them will be stationed in Ahmedabad, Gujarat and another one will be in Mumbai, Maharashtra.

The information by automobiliardent says that Ambani has bought two new Rolls Royce Phantom saloons. The Phantom in Ahmedabad was spotted parked on the roadside while the other unit for Mumbai is yet to be spotted. It won’t be long before shutterbugs catch that one too.

Reliance Industries has a major hold in Gujarat and operates India’s biggest refinery at Jamnagar. The Rolls Royce Phantom stationed in Ahmedabad is likely for the official transfers of the dignitaries of Reliance Industries and other guests. It is also likely to be used by the family whenever they visit the state.

The Rolls Royce Phantom spotted in Ahmedabad is finished in a beautiful dual-tone paint job with a combination of Jubilee Silver and Bohemian Red. The Phantom based in Mumbai is finished in a shade of Moonstone Pearl and it is the Extended Wheelbase version. Interestingly, the Ambani family already owns the latest generation Rolls Royce Phantom EWB in Mumbai.

Costs more than Rs 13.5 crore

With the latest additions, the Ambani family now owns three latest-generation Rolls Royce Phantom VIII. The Rolls Royce Phantom Series VIII Extended Wheel Base (EWB). The base price of the vehicle on-road, Mumbai is Rs 13.5 crore. However, this is the price without any customisation option and we all know that Rolls Royce is known for their customised products. So we can safely say that the car in Ambani’s garage is worth much more than Rs 13.5 crore.

This latest-generation Rolls Royce Phantom utilises the new aluminium spaceframe platform, which Rolls Royce calls as ‘Architecture of Luxury’. It is lighter by 30% when compared to its predecessor. It is also one of the largest Rolls Royce ever but is 77mm shorter, 8mm taller and 29 mm wider than the predecessor.

The Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII gets a larger 24-slat chrome grille, new LED projector headlamps with LED DRLs and LED tail lamps. The design inspiration comes from the yacht and it gets a dual-tone shade that makes it look like a grand vehicle. The Rolls Royce Phantom Series VIII gets 130 kg of sound insulation which makes it one of the most silent vehicles in the world. Further, there is 6mm double-layered sound-proof glazing on each window.

Powering the massive Rolls Royce Series VIII EWB is a 6.75-litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine that produces a maximum power of 563 Bhp and 900 Nm. The torque peaks at 1,700 rpm and it transfers the power to the wheels through an 8-speed satellite-attached transmission system. The vehicle can do 0-100 km/h in just 5.4 seconds.
