Shilpa Shetty with her Mercedes Maybach SUV

If there is one Bollywood celebrity who is gradually building up an expansive car collection, it is Shilpa Shetty. The renowned actress is often seen in swanky cars and SUVs, most of which are owned by her or her husband, businessman Raj Kundra. The latest SUV in which Shilpa Shetty was seen is a brand-new Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600, which is believed to be the new prized possession of the actress.

In a YouTube video from the channel “Cars For You,” Shilpa Shetty is seen arriving at the airport in a new white Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600. The actress is then seen getting off the SUV and leaving to catch a flight. It was the first time that Shilpa was seen with this new GLS 600, which currently sits at the top of the Mercedes-Benz lineup as its most expensive and luxurious SUV.

The obsession of Bollywood celebrities with the Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 is getting larger day by day. It all started when actor Arjun Kapoor got a blue GLS 600 for himself. However, he was followed by Ranveer Singh, Kriti Sanon, Ayushmann Khurrana, Ram Charan, and Ajay Devgn. All of these Bollywood celebrities purchased the GLS 600 either in the shade of blue or black. However, it is the first time that a Bollywood celebrity has chosen the white shade for her GLS 600.

The Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 is the most expensive SUV from the German car brand and is based on the standard Mercedes-Benz GLS Class SUV. It gets a host of visual tweaks on the outside to make it look different from the GLS. The interior has also been revamped with several add-ons to offer unparalleled luxury and comfort on the inside. Unlike the standard GLS, which is a seven-seater SUV, the Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 is a strict four-seater with a lounge-like seating experience.

The Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 is available only with a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine, assisted by a 48V mild-hybrid system. This engine is paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission and is capable of producing a maximum power output of 550 bhp and a peak torque output of 730 Nm. This SUV is brought to India via the CBU route.

Before having the GLS 600 for herself, Shilpa Shetty already had a desirable car collection comprising cars like the Bentley Continental GT, Lamborghini Aventador, BMW i8, BMW X5, Range Rover Vogue, and BMW 7-Series.
