Mukesh Ambani’s family has received the delivery of the third Rolls Royce Cullinan during the weekend. This Rolls Royce, however, is quite special as it gets a special number plate and the highest price tag because of the customisation options. The new car was spotted with an entourage of usual Ambani security cars that include the Mercedes-AMG G-Wagen and MG Gloster.
Earlier this year, PTI claimed that this new Rolls Royce Cullinan costs Rs 13.14 crore. While the base price of the Rolls Royce Cullinan is Rs 6.8 crore, additional optional items and customisation can raise the cost by a lot.
While the exact customisation options chosen by the Ambanis remain a secret, we can see that the new Cullinan is finished in the brilliant Tuscan Sun colour shade that makes it stand out in the crowd. The paint job alone is said to have cost a little under Rs. 1 crore. It also looks like the car gets optional 21-inch wheels. The price of the alloy wheels is not available online and is only revealed upon request.
There are hundreds of possibilities for customisation options. We are not sure which ones exactly the Ambani clan chose for the latest Rolls Royce. Video footage from CS12 Vlogs shows two of the three Rolls Royce Cullinans owned by the Ambani family in India.
Registration worth Rs 20 lakh

The new Cullinan gets a “0001” registration number. While it usually costs Rs 4 lakh for the VIP number, according to the RTO, they chose the number from a new series as all the numbers from the current series were taken.
That is why RTO charged Rs 12 lakh for the registration number alone. RTO said with written permission from the Transport Commissioner, the new series can be started without exhausting the previous series. However, the RTO charges three times compared to the standard registration cost.
The report further claims that Rs 20 lakh is paid as one-time tax and the registration is valid till January 2037. Additional Rs 40,000 is paid as the road safety tax.
Multiple Rolls Royce in Ambani garage
There are several Rolls Royce models in the Ambani garage. Starting with the Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe, they also own three Rolls Royce Cullinan and a latest-generation Phantom Extended Wheelbase, which also costs around Rs 13 crore.
While media reports claim that the new car is for Mukesh Ambani himself, it cannot be true. He only travels in bulletproof cars for security reasons and unless the Rolls Royce is bulletproof, be assured that he will not travel in it. It seems like the new car is an engagement gift to the Anant Ambani and Radhika Merchant. The car was registered in January earlier this year.
