Mukesh Ambani, one of the world’s richest person is also known for his extremely luxurious line of cars. The Ambani family keeps on adding vehicles to their garage and last year, the family added quite a few luxury and sports cars including the Rolls Royce Cullinan, Tesla Model S and the Lamborghini Urus. In 2020, a new vehicle belonging to the Ambani garage has been spotted on the roads of Mumbai. The vehicle was reportedly bought during the wedding of Akash Ambani last year. However, this is the first time that the vehicle has been spotted on the roads.
This is the Rolls Royce Phantom Series VIII Extended Wheel Base (EWB). The base price of the vehicle on-road, Mumbai is Rs 13.5 crore. However, this is the price without any customisation option and we all know that Rolls Royce is known for their customised products. So we can safely say that the car in the Ambani’s garage is worth much more than Rs 13.5 crore, making it the most expensive known Ambani vehicle except for the heavily armoured bulletproof vehicles that are used by Mukesh Ambani. Rolls Royce offers over 44,000 exterior colours and other personalised designs.
The Rolls Royce Phantom VIII EWB is one of the most expensive Rolls Royce vehicles ever. The sedan was spotted on the roads of Mumbai and the pictures were posted by Car Crazy India.

The Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII gets a larger 24-slat chrome grille, new LED projector headlamps with LED DRLs and LED tail lamps. The design inspiration comes from yacht and it gets a dual-tone shade that makes it look like a grand vehicle. The Rolls Royce Phantom Series VIII gets 130 kg of sound insulation that makes it one of the most silent vehicles in the world. Further, there are 6mm double-layered sound-proof glazing on each window.
