Adar Poonawalla is one of the most popular Indian businessmen. The Poonawalla family is one of the wealthiest families in the country. Like all rich businessmen, Adar Poonawalla also has a good collection of expensive cars and is often seen in the backseat of his Rolls Royce Phantom and Bentley Bentayga luxury cars. Here is a video featuring Adar Poonawalla driving his Ferrari 488 Pista supercar on the roads of Mumbai.

The video was shared by Automobili Ardent India on their Instagram page. Mumbai is known for its population of supercars. Every weekend, the owners of these supercars take their prized possessions out on the streets. Car spotters wait for these cars on the roadside, and the video of Adar Poonawalla’s Ferrari was captured by someone like this.
In this video, we see a red Ferrari 488 Pista at a traffic signal. The car belongs to Adar Poonawalla, and we can see him in the driver’s seat as well. It is one of those occasions when Adar is seen behind the wheel. As the traffic signal turns green, Adar Poonawalla floors the accelerator, and the supercar simply moves forward. The sweet sound from the V8 engine of the Ferrari can also be heard in the video. Just behind the Ferrari is a Mercedes-Benz GL Class SUV, indicating that Adar’s security personnel were traveling in this SUV.
The SUV followed the supercar in the video. Recently posted online, the video has already garnered over 4,000 likes. The comment section of the video also contains some interesting comments. One user said that the GL63 is probably rarer than the Ferrari that Adar was driving. Another user wrote, “He is the only guy who lets his drivers drive his supercars.”
Adar Poonawalla is not the only businessman who owns a Ferrari. Billionaire businessman Gautam Singhania, who is also a car enthusiast, owns one of these supercars. Gautam Singhania was seen performing stunts in his yellow Ferrari 488 Pista as part of the Red Bull Showrun held on March 12, 2023, in Mumbai. As for the details, the Ferrari is powered by a 3.9-liter turbocharged engine that generates around 710 bhp and 770 Nm of peak torque. It was named the most powerful V8 engine in the history of Ferrari. The price for a Ferrari 488 Pista starts at around Rs 3.68 crore, ex-showroom, and goes up to Rs 4.40 crore, ex-showroom. Customizations opted by the owner take the price even higher.
In 2021, Adar Poonawalla bought not one but two Rolls Royce luxury saloons. He purchased a Rolls Royce Phantom VIII and a Phantom VIII EWB version. The Phantom is the flagship sedan from Rolls Royce. The EWB version of the Phantom VIII is priced at Rs 13.5 crore, ex-showroom. As we all know, Rolls Royce offers a variety of customization options with this luxury car, making it even more expensive. As Adar Poonawalla prefers to be chauffeured around, the space for rear-seat passengers matters a lot. That is probably the reason why he bought the EWB version. Adar Poonawalla also owns a Bentley Bentayga EWB worth Rs 6 crore, ex-showroom. Additionally, he owns cars like the Rolls Royce Ghost Series I and Phantom VII, a Ferrari 360 Spider, Bentley Continental GT, McLaren 720S, and even a custom-built Batmobile.
