Mukesh Ambani is one of those few people in India who can afford to have a bulletproof vehicle in their garage. Mukesh Ambani also has to travel in bulletproof vehicles because of his Z+ security. Today, we have a video in which the Mercedes S600 Guard is caught on-road that too without its convoy. The video is uploaded on YouTube by CS 12 VLOGS.
In the video, we can see the Mercedes S600 Guard on Mumbai roads. The luxury vehicle is travelling without the convey. This means that the vehicle does not have Mukesh Ambani in it. The driver must have taken the vehicle to refuel it or something. Usually, whenever there is a family member in the vehicle, there is an extensive convoy that travels with the S600 Guard.
The convoy of Mukesh Ambani consists of expensive vehicles like Land Rover Range Rover Autobiography, Range Rover Vogue, Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen, Land Rover Discovery and much more. The exact number of vehicles is not known. The latest addition to the convoy is MG Gloster which is also the most affordable vehicle in the convoy. The total cost of the convoy exceeds Rs. 20 Crores.
Vehicles that Ambanis own
Mukesh Ambani owns a slew of vehicles. It includes Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG, Mercedes-Benz E-Class, BMW i8, Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe, Land Rover Range Rover, Bentley Mulsanne and Porsche Cayenne. They also have Rolls Royce Phantom VIII extended wheelbase and two Rolls Royce Cullinan SUVs. They also have a Lamborghini Urus which is one of the fastest SUVs that you can buy. Then there are sports cars such as Ferrari 812 Superfast, Ferrari Portofino, Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster, Ferrari 488 GTB, McLaren 520S Spider and Aston Martin DB11.
Mukesh Ambani owns three bulletproof vehicles. There is a BMW 7 Series High Security and a W221 generation of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The latest addition is the W222 generation of S-Class which costs more than Rs. 10 Crores. The luxury bulletproof vehicle was delivered to the Ambani family last year.
Mercedes S600 Guard
The S600 Guard is one of the most expensive vehicles that a person can buy. It requires special permission to buy a bulletproof vehicle. The S-Guard comes with VR10 level protection. It can take 15 kgs of TNT from a distance of 2 metre. The underbody and the base structure has been reinforced. The bodyshell is now made up of reinforced steel and the whole vehicle is made of special steel to add strength. The vehicle is able to withstand steel core bullets that are fired directly towards it. The windows are also bulletproof and are coated with polycarbonate.
This has caused a significant increase in weight. So, the S600 Guard weighs 2.8 tonnes and you need a lot of power to move such kind of massive vehicle. Mercedes has equipped the S600 Guard with a twin-turbocharged 6.0-litre V12. The engine is capable of producing 523 bhp of max power and a peak torque output of 850 Nm. The engine is mated to a 7-speed gearbox.
