New Delhi: Reliance Chairman Mukesh Ambani, the multi-billionaire industrialist, has acquired world's most sophisticated armoured vehicle for enhancing his personal security.

The armoured vehicle was today registered at the Mumbai Central Regional Transport Office (RTO).  

With a whooping wealth of 20 billion USD, Mukesh Ambani has maintained the title of India's richest person for 8 years in a row. He is also the owner of 27-storey mansion - Antila, the world's most expensive home ever costing $1 billion.

Let's take a look at the striking features of his recently procured Mercedes Benz:

Mukesh Ambani's car has Level-9 vehicle resistance (VR9), the highest available currently.
 
The fortified Mercedes Benz is mounted on a normal S600.
 
The sophisticated car was customised at Benz's Sindelingen plant in Germany.


 
Reliance Industries had to queue up at No. 57 on the global wait list for the 2015-model armoured S600.
 
The base price of a 2015 model Mercedes Benz S600 is a plebeian Rs 1.5 crore.
 
The rest of the price is accounted for by cost and fitments of Level-9 armour, import duty on the armour and corresponding levies and insurance.


 
Mukesh Ambani's 2015-model S600 V-9 armoured vehicle is the first in India.
 
Actor Aamir Khan has the 2014 model of S600.
