Imagine you are the richest man in the country. What would you buy?
A gold plated helicopter?
Will you make a luxurious house or purchase the fastest auto?
Well, it is not easy to earn such tremendous amount of money, but that is the biggest desire each individual has, right? And one person we all look upto when talking about rich people in India, it is the richest man Mukesh Ambani.
According to Forbes, he ranks at #19 on the rundown of being the World's Wealthiest Man.
So, how about we take a look at some of the costliest things that he owns:
According to a report by Business Insider, Mukesh Ambani travels in his BMW760Li, which is India's most expensive car.
The car is a regular BMW 760Li which costs Rs 1.9 crore on the road, but since Ambani has Z-category security, it was armoured by BMW Germany. Since the import duty on armoured cars is 300%, the cost of the car ballooned to Rs. 8.5 crore, hence the high registration cost.
Antilia costed $1 billion (approx) while building. The 400,000-square foot building has 27 stories, but since some ceilings are double-height, it's closer to the height of a 40-storey building.
Antilia has a multi-storey garage that allows parking of 168 cars. It also has three helipads on the roof.
Mukesh Ambani's Falcon 900 can fly 14 passengers. According to sources, the aircraft has a range of 8,340 km, improved avionics. Today, a Falcon 900 approximately costs $43.3 million.
According to DNA, Mukesh Ambani also owns A-319 that has a capacity of 180 passengers and is valued at Rs 230 crore.
The richest man in India owns the most luxurious and expensive private jet, a Boeing Business Jet 2 which costs $73 million. Also referred to as the BBJ2, the magnificent aircraft carries a perfect mix of grandeur and 21st-century technology.
According to sources, Ambani's BBJ2 was modified with a boardroom and plush executive seats.
Mukesh Ambani's favourite car, out of the many he owns, is Maybach 62. He was the first man to buy a Maybach in India.
According to Daily Bhaskar, the car has many latest technologies like facilities for video conferencing. With 5513 CC engine and top speed of 250 km/hour, it takes only 5.4 seconds to go from 0 to 100 km/hr.
This rather infamous Aston Martin was involved in a fata accident in 2013 when it crashed into an Audi and a Hyundai sedan near Antilia. The customised Aston Martin had cost the family a whopping Rs 4.5 crore and was registered in the name of their company, Reliance Ports.
The grand old lady of the Rolls-Royce family, this is one car that both Mukesh Ambani and Amitabh Bachchan have.
The Mercedes Benz S Guard is the modified version of the S600. The car is armoured with Z category security system. According to Mercedes-Benz, it is one of the safest luxury vehicles on Earth. Not to mention, Ambani was the first Indian to own this car.
Reliance Industries has businesses across India in different sectors of energy, petrochemicals, textiles, natural resources, retail and telecommunications. The firm earns a profit of $4.7 billion every year and Mukesh Ambani holds a 44.7% stake in the company.
