Indian billionaire Mukesh Ambani – the richest person in Asia – and his family often grab headlines for their businesses, philanthropic work, and also their extravagant lifestyle, which includes their collective passion for ultra-luxurious and extremely rare cars. Their $2 billion family home Antilia, which is believed to be the most expensive private residence, is home to a massive car collection that features some of the most expensive cars in India. The newest to join the Ambani fleet is a bespoke Rolls Royce Cullinan Black Badge, which is being touted as India’s most expensive car gift. According to a report by Cartoq, the ultra-luxurious SUV was gifted by Mukesh Ambani to his wife, Nita Ambani.
Interestingly, this is not the first Rolls Royce Cullinan to join the Ambani fleet. In fact, their jaw-dropping car collection includes several Cullinans, including the one that is said to be the most expensive car in India. The latest to be added to the Ambani garage includes a lot of customization, which is hardly a surprise. The most noticeable of them is the luxury SUV’s unique exterior paint, which is a very eye-catching shade of orange with a matte finish. This particular example was recently captured in a YouTube video uploaded by a Mumbai-based car spotter who goes by the name “CS 12 Vlogs.” In the video, the new orange Cullinan can be seen followed by Mukesh Ambani’s new Tuscan Sun-colored Rolls-Royce Cullinan Black Badge.
The massive fleet of security cars that carry the personnel protecting the Ambani family can also be seen in the vlog, and it’s no less impressive. In addition to the several Land Rovers and other SUVs, the fleet includes at least 5 Mercedes-AMG G63 SUVs. However, the orange-colored Rolls-Royce definitely steals the show. In India, the Rolls Royce Cullinan Black Badge is priced at a whopping $1.2 million, excluding all the optional extras and the customization.
We are not aware of the extent of customization done on Nita Ambani’s Cullinan but its price should be significantly more than the base model. The Black Badge is powered by the same 6.75-liter twin-turbocharged V12 petrol engine that’s found in the standard Cullinan, but in a different state of tune to offer more power. It also gets plenty of blacked-out design elements, including the iconic Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament, setting it apart from the rest of the range.
Isha Ambani’s color-changing Rolls-Royce Cullinan
While Mukesh Ambani gifted his wife an orange-colored Rolls Royce Cullinan Black Badge, his daughter – Isha Ambani – also prefers to be driven around in the British luxury SUV. However, the young businesswoman’s Cullinan features something that makes it different from pretty much every luxury car in the Ambani garage. The particular Cullinan is covered in a color-changing wrap, which makes it an immediate attention magnate. Often referred to as psychedelic wrap, the color changes according to the intensity of the light falling onto the surface and the angle at which it is reflected. Isha Ambani’s Cullinan appears deep violet in color from a distance, which transforms into a beautiful shade of blue when viewed up close.
