Mukesh Ambani is a well known businessman and India’s richest man. Not only India but he is counted among the top wealthy people of the world. For obvious reasons then, he and his family get the highest security cover in India to keep him safe.
He has a Z+ security fence around him that is responsible for keeping him safe from threats whenever he is on the move. Mr. Ambani uses a bulletproof Mercedes-Benz S-Class and BMW 7-Series when he’s travelling. His Z+ security cover uses a lot of cars and SUVs. Let’s now find out which are the vehicles that are used by his security personnel.
The various X5s used by Ambani have CRPF logo and flashers on the roof. They are the xDrive 30 variants, which is the entry-level variant of the model that is priced around Rs. 70 lakhs, ex-showroom. The SUV is powered by a 3.0-litre inline 6-cylinder engine that gets twin-scroll turbo. It produces a maximum of 258 Bhp and 560 Nm of peak torque.
The Ford Endeavour also makes it presence among the many vehicles in the Ambani security. There are many of them employed by the tycoon to protect his family of five. It is the second-most expensive car used by the cops in the Ambani family’s convoy. The Endeavours are all in white paint shade and have CRPF stickers on the side with flashers on the top. The Ford Endeavour is powered by a 3.2-litre engine that generates 197 Bhp and 470 Nm. There is a lower spec powered Endeavour available in the Indian market too.
The Mahindra Scorpio is among the oldest ingeniously developed SUVs to be still in production. The ladder frame SUV is in service od many state police departments also. The ones used in Ambani’s convoy belong to the Maharashtra Police who ensure road safety whenever Ambani is travelling. The Mahindra Scorpio mostly sweeps the convoy or stays in the middle of it. The CRPF forces are mainly responsible for his security and take the charge of the Z+ cover. This here is the last generation Scorpio that gets tall tail lamps and is powered by a 2.2-litre diesel engine that churns out a maximum of 118 Bhp and 280 Nm. It also gets the state police decals along with flashers on the rooftop.
Toyota Fortuner is the best selling car of the segment. Rightly so then, this brute SUV provides safety and security to the family.
