In the past decade, Konidela Ram Charan Teja, popularly known as Ram Charan, has risen to fame as one of the most bankable actors in the South Indian film industry. If you wonder that only the films of Ram Charan have a larger-than-life grandeur, you will be surprised to know that the same charisma is reflected in his collection of cars as well. The Telugu actor owns a few expensive luxury and sports cars in his garage, with some of them being extremely special for the exclusivity they enjoy. Following are all the cars present in the car collection of Ram Charan:
Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600
The Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 is the new flagship and most luxurious SUV from Mercedes Benz all over the world. The GLS 600 is based on the third-generation Mercedes Benz GLS-Class and is gradually becoming a hot favourite of film celebrities for its amazing road presence and ultra-luxurious cabin.
After a few celebrities from Bollywood got their hands on it, Ram Charan became the first actor from Tollywood to buy a Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600. However, what makes his GLS 600 special is the additional customizations he opted for his SUV, which makes it the first customized GLS 600 in India. While the GLS 600 costs Rs 2.43 crore in India, Ram Charan’s black-coloured GLS 600 cost him around Rs 4 crore after all the customizations.
The Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 is powered by a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine, which is assisted by a 48V mild-hybrid system and produces 550 bhp of maximum power and 730 Nm of maximum torque. Available with a 9G-Tronic automatic transmission as standard, the GLS 600 comes with features like Nappa leather upholstery, reclining front and rear seats, ventilated massaging seats, ambient lighting and the latest generation of MBUX infotainment system.

Before buying the Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600, Ram Charan purchased a Ferrari Portofino, which was also one of the first units of Portofino which landed in India. The red-coloured Portofino in the car collection of Ram Charan is often spotted at the actor’s shoot locations, where he drives to.
Unveiled for the first time during Frankfurt Motor Show in 2017, the Ferrari Portofino is a 2+2 seater convertible grand touring sports car, which comes standard with a hard-top foldable roof. The Portofino came in as a replacement to the highly popular California T.
The Ferrari Portofino gets a 3.9-litre twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine, which it shares with the Ferrari GTC4 Lusso T. Coupled to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox, this engine pumps out 600 PS of maximum power and 760 Nm of torque, which makes it the most powerful car in the current collection of Ram Charan. In a typical Ferrari fashion, the Portofino is lightning fast, with a 0-100 kmph sprint time of 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 320 kmph.

Land Rover Range Rover SV Autobiography
The flagship vehicle from Land Rover, the Range Rover SV Autobiography is one of the most desirable vehicles, even for those who have all the money in the world. The mammoth road presence and a luxurious and premium cabin make the Range Rover a top pick for the rich car buyers. Ram Charan also got one a few years ago in a stunning shade of black, which is topped with a custom red-coloured interior layout.
The third-generation Land Rover Range Rover present in the car collection of Ram Charan made its public debut at the Paris Motor Show in 2012. However, the SUV came to India officially in India, and in no time, it was welcomed by several celebrities and businessmen in their car collection. Ram Charan owns the top-spec SV Autobiography variant in its diesel version, which is powered by a 4.4-litre V8 diesel engine. Coupled with an 8-speed automatic gearbox, this engine is capable of putting up 335 bhp of maximum power and 740 Nm of peak torque output. This fourth-generation Range Rover was also the first-ever production four-wheel-drive SUV to feature an all-aluminium monocoque frame.
Aston Martin Vantage V8
While the Aston Martin V8 might be the oldest vehicle in the current car collection of Ram Charan, it is one of the most prized possessions of the actor. Ram Charan got this Vantage V8 as a gift from his in-laws at the time of his wedding, post which the actor drove this car with his wife. He still owns this Vantage, and while the car has an original shade of grey, the actor got a customized blue-coloured wrap-job for it.
The Aston Martin Vantage V8 owned by Ram Charan is the facelifted hard-top coupe version of the V8 model, which was officially introduced in 2008. This version of the Vantage V8 has a 4.7-litre naturally-aspirated V8 petrol engine, which replaced the 4.3-litre V8 engine of the pre-facelift model. This 4.7-litre V8 engine is coupled to a 7-speed automated manual gearbox and produces a maximum power output of 426 bhp and a peak torque output of 470 Nm. Despite its age, the Aston Martin Vantage V8 is a sheer head-turner wherever it goes.

The second model from Mercedes Benz in the car collection of Ram Charan is an E-Class. Ram Charan owns a brown-coloured facelifted version of the fourth-generation Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which he acquired soon after its launch in India in 2014.
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is one of the highest selling cars from the German car brand in India and is widely preferred for its spacious and comfortable cabin. The E-Class is synonymous with luxury and social status and is often preferred by those who love to be in the back seat of a car most of the time.
The version of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class owned by Ram Charan is the facelifted fourth-generation E250 CDI. Available with a 7G-Tronic automatic transmission, this car has a 2.2-litre four-cylinder diesel engine, which claims a maximum power output of 201 bhp and a peak torque output of 500 Nm.
The most expensive sedan in the car collection of Ram Charan is a black-coloured BMW 7-Series. Ram Charan took the delivery of this pre-facelift sixth-generation BMW 7-Series in 2017, soon after the sedan made its debut in the Indian car market.
An alternative to full-sized luxury sedans like Mercedes-Benz S-Class, Audi A8 and Jaguar XJ, the BMW 7-Series recently entered its seventh generation. However, the pre-facelift sixth-generation model made its international debut at the BMW’s headquarters in Munich in 2015, with its official public debut afterwards at the 2015 International Motor Show in Germany.
Ram Charan owns the 730Ld version of the BMW 7-Series, which is a long-wheelbase diesel-powered version of the car sold in India. This particular version of the 7-Series got a 3.0-litre inline-six diesel engine, which produces 261 bhp of maximum power output and 620 Nm of maximum torque. An 8-speed automatic gearbox was available as standard in this version.
