Mukesh Ambani, the richest Indian, has been featured on our website several times for his impressive car collection. He likely has the largest collection of cars in the country, which includes expensive and exotic vehicles that are often seen on the road. The Ambanis also own a couple of helicopters. In a rare and old video of Mukesh Ambani and his family, they can be seen arriving in a helicopter and later driving off in a Mercedes S-Class. The video was uploaded by India News and Special Story on their YouTube channel seven years ago.

The video begins by showing an empty ground with two helipads. The description states that the video was recorded in Gujarat when the family was visiting Dwarka temple. Soon after, two helicopters appear and slowly align before landing on the helipad. Security forces and other people can be seen waiting for the family on the ground.
After the helicopters land, security officers open the doors on both choppers. Mukesh Ambani was flying in the first chopper, while Nita Ambani was in the second one parked behind. A group of expensive cars and SUVs, including GL Class SUV, Audi A6 sedan, Toyota Camry, Mitsubishi Montero, and a Honda Accord, can be seen near the helicopters.
The family then gets into the cars and SUVs and drives to the temple. Mukesh Ambani was traveling in a Mercedes-Benz S-Class sedan, with security personnel walking next to the car as it approached the temple. Mr. Ambani and his son got out of the vehicle in front of the temple, and his wife was traveling in the Mercedes GL class SUV behind them. It is unclear if the S-Class seen in the video is bulletproof. Toward the end of the video, Nita Ambani speaks to the media about their visit to the temple and mentions all the family members who were present.
Since the video was recorded, the Ambanis have updated their convoy to include cars such as Range Rover Discovery, the previous generation Range Rover Vogue, Ford Endeavour, Mercedes G63 AMG and MG Gloster SUVs. They also have an extensive collection of cars, including Bentley Bentayga, Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Mercedes-AMG G63, Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe, Porsche Cayenne, multiple Rolls Royce saloons, three Rolls Royce Cullinan SUVs, BMW i8 sports car, multiple Bentley Bentayga SUVs including a rare W12 variant, Lamborghini Urus, and even a Tesla Model S 100D. Ambanis also have a Ferrari SF90 Stradale supercar in their garage. The car has been spotted on the road couple of times.
Due to security reasons, Mukesh Ambani always travels in bulletproof vehicles and has Z+ category security. His usual car is a Mercedes-Benz S600 Guard worth Rs 12 crore. The car comes with VR10-level protection, making it the first civilian vehicle in the world to receive this certification. It can withstand steel core bullets fired directly at the car and even 15 kg of TNT blast from a distance of 2 meters! It features a reinforced base structure and special underbody armor with polycarbonate-coated windows.
