Mumbai: India’s richest man Mukesh Ambani’s company Reliance Industries (RIL) has purchased an ultra-luxury Rolls Royce SUV. The price of the new car is said to be a whopping Rs 13.14 crore.
If Regional Transport Office (RTO) officials are to be believed, it is one of the most expensive car purchases ever in the country, reported PTI.
The said vehicle is reportedly a Rolls Royce Cullinan petrol model. An official said that the car was registered by RIL at the Tardeo Regional Transport Office in South Mumbai on January 31.
The Rolls Royce Cullinan was launched in 2018 and was priced at Rs 6.95 crore for the base price. According to the auto industry experts, the various customized modifications made in the car must have increased the price substantially.
The company has bought the car in the “Tuscan Sun” colour scheme for the 12-cylinder car. The car weighs over 2.5 tonnes and produces 564 BHP power.
As per the RTO officials, the company has also obtained a special number plate for the car. The official also added that a one-time tax of Rs 20 lakh has been paid by reliance for the car.
The registration of the car is valid till January 30, 2037, and another Rs 40,000 has been paid towards road safety tax.
It could even be the most expensive car purchased in India.
Reliance Industry Limited has also paid Rs 12 lakh for a VIP number for its chairman and managing director’s new car, whose number ends with “0001”, officials said.
Usually, a VIP number costs Rs 4 lakh, but since the chosen number in the current series was already taken, a new series had to be started, they said.
The official further explained that with written permission from the Transport Commissioner, RTO offices can start a new series for assigning registration mark 0001 for which the applicant has to shell out three times the fee specified for a regular number.
Rolls Royce Cullinan will be the third Cullinan model to be added in Ambani/RIL garage. The Rolls Royce Cullinan was first launched in India in 2018 as a hatchback capable of taking both paved and rough roads. It’s the first all-terrain SUV from Rolls-Royce’s stable, as per the British manufacturer’s website.
Mukesh Ambani’s car is one of the biggest and most different looking luxury SUV in the world. This car has a 6200 cc petrol engine and the mileage of this car is 14 kmpl.
