Over the years, the number of cars enthusiasts has really increased in India and many expensive and rare cars can be seen on the roads. Well, to protect these cars on the roads, often security cars follow them. We all know how nasty the fellow commuters can turn out to be on the roads and it is always a good idea to have a bunch of guys watch your back while driving around inexpensive vehicles. While cars like Mahindra Scorpio and Tata Safari remain the first choice of many such people, there are people who prefer luxury vehicles for their security team too. Here are the most expensive security cars used by Indians. We are not considering the decoy armoured cars used by our prime minister on this list. The cars were listed in this thread of T-BHP.

This is one of the rarest BMW X6M Hamann Tycoon Evo in India. The car belongs to Poonawallas and off-late, it has been the part of the security cavalcade of the business family. Apart from the wide-body kit, the car gets a massive power increase to produce a maximum power of 670 PS and 780 Nm! It can do 0-100 km/h in just 4.2 seconds and the top speed is limited at 250 km/h.

When you’re in a quick car like a Lamborghini Huracan, you sure need a security car that can keep up in traffic. Well, here is a Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG being used as a security car for the Huracan. This second-generation G63 AMG came with a big fat price tag and the 4.0-litre V8 engine producing a maximum of 577 Bhp and 850 Nm can surely keep up with any sports car in the Indian traffic.
