The Ambani family is the wealthiest in the country and consequently, owns one of the largest collections of ultra-luxury and expensive cars. Their garage dwarfs that of almost any other prominent garage in the country. Despite owning almost everything under the sun, their collection keeps growing, and the most recent addition to their garage is a Bentley Continental GTC Speed. This multi-crore convertible was recently spotted on the roads of Mumbai for the first time.
Reportedly, Mukesh Ambani gifted this beautiful Bentley Continental GTC Speed, finished in a lovely shade of flaming orange, to Anant Ambani and Radhika Merchant to celebrate their engagement. Sources suggest that the car was first spotted a couple of months ago inside Antilla, decorated with flowers, during the engagement party of Anant Ambani.
From the recent sighting of the car, it was noted that it adorned a VIP number plate, but the car was seen without any security entourage. The car was most likely being driven by a chauffeur, as Anant Ambani travels around the city of Mumbai with a huge security convoy, just like all the other members of the Ambani family.

The Ambani garage has housed Bentley vehicles before, and there are many more expensive models. The Ambanis were among the first to purchase the Bentayga SUV in India, and the family loves this Bentley SUV so much that they have four of them: three are V8 variants, and one is a W12 variant. They also own a Mulsanne, Continental GT two-door, and a few Fly Spurs, as well as a number of Rolls Royce cars.
