The legendary Mercedes-Benz G-Class (commonly known as the G-Wagon ) has been around for more than 40 years, and during that period it has transformed from a hardcore off-roader built for military use to one of the most popular lifestyle vehicles currently on sale. The G-Class has been one of the bestselling models for Mercedes-Benz over the last few years. A few months back, the German carmaker announced that it had delivered over 40,000 units of the celebrated SUV in 2021, setting a new sales record, per Hot Cars. In fact, there were even reports that the G-Class was completely sold out till 2025 and the company had to temporarily stop accepting new orders. But it’s hardly a surprise as the boxy SUV has become a symbol of wealth over the last decade, being regularly featured in films, TV shows and music videos. If that’s not enough, the G-Wagon that was conceived as a capable, functional SUV is now a favourite among Hollywood stars and celebrity A-listers across the globe . Who is the richest woman in the world right now? (No, it’s not Kim K) However, for Mukesh Ambani and his family, the iconic G-Class is only good enough for their personal security detail, apparently. Here’s what you need to know about Ambani and his luxury car collection. He’s the second-richest person in Asia In case you’ve somehow never heard of Mukesh Ambani before, the Indian business tycoon chairs and runs Reliance Industries, which has interests in petrochemicals, oil and gas, telecoms and retail. With a personal net worth of about US$90 billion, it’s an ongoing contest between the 65-year-old and Gautam Adani, who comes in closely ahead as Asia’s richest man . Like most billionaires, Ambani and his family love cars, and their US$2 billion residence in Mumbai named Antilia is home to one of the biggest and most expensive car collections in India. Often referred to as the Jio Garage by automobile enthusiasts in India, it consists of around 170 luxury cars at last count, although the line-up keeps getting upgraded regularly. His security guards use a fleet of four Mercedes-AMG G63s worth US$1.2 million Being within the top tier of wealth in the nation, the Ambani family has been provided with what’s known as Z+ security by the Indian government, which is considered to be the highest category of personal security offered by the country’s National Security Guard commandos. Last year, the family bought a total of four Mercedes-AMG G63s to be used by the security personnel, according to GQ India . There are plenty of videos on the internet where the white-coloured, nondescript G-Wagons can be seen moving together in Ambani’s considerably big convoy of cars. Prince of India: the baby bling life of Mukesh Ambani’s grandson Prithvi In the US, the Cadillac Escalade is not an uncommon vehicle used by security personnel protecting wealthy individuals and their families. However, with a starting price of over US$160,000, the Mercedes-Benz G63 is considerably more expensive than the Escalade. And the price tag of the G63 doubles in India after adding the import duties and taxes levied by the country. The fleet of G-Wagons used by Ambani’s personal security is estimated to be worth about US$1.2 million. What’s interesting is that the more affordable diesel-powered G350d is also on sale in India, but the Ambani family still went with the high-performance AMG version for their security fleet. The G63 gets an AMG-tuned four-litre twin-turbo V8 that churns out 577hp and 627lb-ft. And in case you’re surprised by the AMG G63 security cars used by Ambani, think again: the boxy SUVs were bought as a replacement for his Range-Rover Vogues that previously served as the vehicles used by the billionaire’s security guards. He has the most expensive car in India With that amount of wealth, it’s only expected for Ambani to own the most expensive car collection – including the most expensive vehicle in the country. The Jio Garage is home to the most expensive car in India, which is estimated to be worth nearly US$2 million. However, it’s not a hypercar, as some of you might guess, but rather a special Rolls-Royce Cullinan. Inside Shah Rukh Khan’s modest first home before fame The Ambani family owns a total of three Rolls-Royce SUVs and the third one reportedly came with a price tag of around US$2 million, which is quite a bit more than its starting price. In addition to a long list of the customisations and optional extras on the SUV that inflated its price tag, the Cullinan features a special paint job that is believed to be worth a whopping US$126,000, per Cartoq, a car news website. In addition to the custom Cullinan, the Jio Garage consists of cars like Bentley Bentayga, Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Mercedes-AMG G63 and Bentley Mulsanne. He’s also got Land Rover Range Rover, Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe, Porsche Cayenne and many more expensive cars. This article originally appeared in LuxuryLaunches Want more stories like this?
