Former chairman of Tata Sons, Rata Tata is a person who does not need to be identified. The 81-year-old industrialist was behind various initiatives of Indian brands. The Tata Nano which was not really a successful product is also the brainchild of Ratan Tata. Apart from being a successful businessman and philanthropist, Ratan Tata is also known as an automobile enthusiast and was seen in the garage with some of his cars.
The Nexon was Tata Motors’ first product in the compact SUV segment. It is currently one of the best selling SUVs on the market. It is currently one of the safest cars in the segment and has helped make this SUV popular among buyers. Ratan Tata also owns one of these SUVs in his garage. He uses the per-facelift model in the blue shade. He is using the 1.5 liter turbo diesel version which generates 108 Bhp and 260 Nm of peak torque.
From Nexon, we got into a car at the other end of the spectrum. A Ferrari California hard top convertible in Ferrari Red Shade. Mr. Tata has been seen frequently driving around Mumbai with this Italian beauty top down. The car is powered by a 4.3 liter V8 and generates 490 bhp and 504 Nm of peak torque. This model has been discontinued from the market.
The Honda Civic is a product that has made a place for itself in the sedan segment in India. It was actually a car that even some celebrities used. Mr. Tata owned an all-white Civic sedan and used it for his daily commute. Most of the time Ratan Tata himself is seen behind the wheel. The Civic is powered by a 1.8 liter V-TEC engine that generates 130Bhp and 172 Nm of peak torque.
Mercedes-Benz 500 SL
Ratan Tata also owns a Mercedes-Benz 500 SL convertible sedan finished in a silver-gray shade. It looks like it has a soft angle for convertible. This excellent looking sedan is powered by a 5.0 liter V8 engine that produces 306 Bhp of power.
Land Rover Freelander
We all know that Tata bought Jaguar Land Rover from Ford in 2008. Mr. Tata owns a Land Rover Freelander SUV that comes with a sporty red interior. Surprisingly, there is no Range Rover in Ratan Tata’s garage. Freelancers can be seen at most important events or at work.
Another car owned by Ratan Tata is the classic Mercedes-Benz W124 sedan. He said it was his own but the car had never been seen on the road. Although this car is well maintained in his garage.
As we mentioned earlier, Mr. Tata has a soft angle for convertibles. The next convertible in his garage is a Cadillac XLR that comes with a folding hardtop. It uses a 4.6-liter Northstar V8 engine manufactured by General Motors. The Cadillac Sporty has finished in the red shed and has been spotted several times on the streets of Mumbai.
Although Ratan Tata owns a Chrysler Sabring, no pictures of the car were found. He did, however, admit in an interview that one has ownership. She just fell in love with the color of her sebring. The same color was later used in Tata Indica when it was shown at the 1998 Geneva Motor Show.
Tata Indigo Marina
Ratan Tata actually bought this car not for him, but for his dog. Mr. Tata used to take dogs to his Indigo Marina. The cabin was modified to accommodate more dogs. The seats were completely removed from the car for this purpose.
This is a car that is usually found in the garages of business tycoons, celebrities and Rata Tata is no exception. The Ratan Tata S-Class sedan is a black shade and a Mercedes-Benz flagship limousine. He has been seen many times in the back seat of luxury sedans.
Tata Nano EV (custom built)
Electra EV which is an electric vehicle based on Tata Nano, a leading company in electric vehicle powertrain solutions. They have distributed Tata Nano EV to Mr. Tata to get insights and feedback about the product.
