Mukesh Ambani owns the most expensive and largest collection of cars in India. Their collection is often called “Jio Garage”. Because the family has a Z+ category of security, they often do not travel together because of security concerns. In the past, we have covered their vehicles many times. Now, Ambani’s Rolls Royce Phantom VIII, Bentley Mulsanne and their new Mercedes-Benz S-Class have been spotted together.
The video is uploaded on YouTube by CS 12 VLOGS. In the video, we can clearly see the convoy. It starts with an MG Gloster leading as a police vehicle, then there is the Rolls Royce Phantom VIII, Bentley Mulsanne and the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class. There is also a Land Rover Range Rover at the end of the convoy.
It is not a regular Bentley Mulsanne, it is the Hallmark Edition. Only 50 of these were made for the world. These special editions were made by Mulliner and were handcrafted.
It was offered in two specifications. There was Silver and Gold. It gets special metallic styling, you can get it in a single-tone or a duo-tone finish. The retractable Bentley Flying ‘B’, is crafted in either 23.9-carat gold plate or solid silver. There is a line that runs throughout the length of the car. It is either in gold or silver. Moreover, the wheels measure 21-inches and there is a Mulliner grille in the front.
Then there is the interior which is also handcrafted and there is a stainless steel plaque on which the serial number of the Mulsanne is engraved. There is gold or silver embroidery and piping throughout the interior. The doors, panels and the seats have a unique pattern which is exclusive to the Hallmark edition.
It comes with a 6.75-litre V-8 petrol engine that produces 505 hp of max power and a massive 1020 Nm of peak torque. It can hit a ton in 5.1 seconds and has a top speed of 296 kmph. It comes mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission sourced ZF.
Then there is the Rolls Royce Phantom VIII Extended Wheelbase. It costs more than Rs. 13.5 Crores and it was bought during the wedding of Akash Ambani. Rolls Royce is known for its luxuriousness. The manufacturer used around 130 kgs of insulation materials to reduce the sound that comes from the external environment. It comes with a 6.75 litre V12 that has been twin-turbocharged. It produces 563 bhp of max power and 900 Nm of peak torque. It can hit 0-100 kmph in 5.4 seconds. The engine is known to produce all of its torque in its lower rpm and is tuned for smoothness. It uses an 8-speed automatic transmission that is also specifically tuned for smoothness and jerk-free shifts.
Phantom has an immense road presence despite being a saloon. This is because of the sheer size of the vehicle. The hood is very long, there are 22-inch alloy wheels, twin exhaust tips, a 100-litre fuel tank and a weighted Rolls Royce badge on the wheels.
