Amitabh Bachchan, who is one of the most senior actors in the industry is known for his affection towards luxury cars. The Bachchan family owns quite a few exotic vehicles including a Lexus LX570, Mercedes-Maybach S500, Bentley Continental GT, Porsche Cayman, a couple of S-Class, Mercedes-Benz V-Class and Land Rover Range Rover. The Bachchans also owned cars like Land Cruiser and Rolls Royce in the past and keeps on upgrading their garage every now and then. A car from Amitabh Bachchan’s previous fleet of cars – Mercedes-Benz S-Class is on sale and it is priced cheaper than a Maruti Suzuki Ciaz! The asking price of the S-Class is only Rs 9.99 lakh, which is much lower than the price of a top-end Maruti Suzuki Ciaz.
Amitabh Bachchan and his family have always loved to move around in the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. However, over time, they replaced the fleet with the latest versions of the car in the market while the old ones were sold in the used car market. One such car is up for sale again and it bears the same number as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class 350 L owned by Mr Bachchan. The car was spotted several times with Mr Bachchan in the past and there are numerous photographs of both of them together.
As per the advertisement on OLX, the car is a 2007 model and is powered by a petrol engine. It is currently with its third owner, which means it has already exchanged quite a few hands. Nonetheless, the odometer reading as per the ad is only 55,000 km, which means that the has left a lot of miles in it. The grey coloured Mercedes-Benz S-Class seen in the pictures here bears the same registration number, which includes the Bachchan family’s signature “5050” number.
The S-Class available in 2007 was an extended wheelbase variant, which is why t gets an “L” suffix. It was powered by a 3,498cc, V6 petrol engine that produced a massive 365 Bhp and 345 Nm. However, the fuel efficiency within the city limits is not so great. However, expect it to be extremely silent on the roads.
It is a previous-generation W221 model, which means it is not too outdated in terms of technology. Plus the car is very spacious, thanks to the long wheelbase of the vehicle. The Mercedes-Benz S-Class always remained on the top when it comes to luxury, which is why many celebrities choose it over other cars. The Bachchan family still owns a few S-Class including the luxurious Maybach S500, which is often used by Aishwarya Rai.
Currently, Amitabh Bachchan prefers travelling in his new Range Rover Autobiography and the Mercedes-Benz V-Class MUV. The luxury MUV from Mercedes-Benz offers a few high-end features including swivel seats and is known for its ride quality and cabin space. Amitabh Bachchan is a major car fanatic and loves to drive the vehicles whenever he gets a chance. Who knows how many times, the veteran actor has put his hands on the steering wheel of the vehicle which is up for sale?
