0

A car for Prime Minister Narendra Modi has sparked widespread speculation about its high price of Rs 12 crore. The latest car from PM Modi is a Mercedes-Maybach S 650 Guard. He previously used a Range Rover Vogue, Toyota Land Cruiser and a BMW car.

However, the replacement car will cost a lot less than what the media reported, sources said. The real cost is roughly a third of the price that’s making the rounds on social media. Two such cars were purchased for the Prime Minister.

The new cars are not an upgrade, but a routine replacement after BMW stopped manufacturing the previously used model, sources said.

The Special Protection Group’s safety detail ( SPG) follows a six year norm to replace vehicles used by people who are meant to protect them.

The previous cars were used by PM Modi for eight years. A security audit found this and has raised concerns that it would weaken security, sources said. They are decided by the SPG without considering the views of the people protecting them, sources said. « The widespread discussions about the safety features of the protected’s car are not in the national interest as many unnecessary details are publicly available This only threatens the life of the protected person, « an official with direct knowledge of the matter told NDTV. asks not to be identified.

Sources said PM Modi had given no preference to using cars, but Congress chief Sonia Gandhi used Range Rover, which was designed for former Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh.

The Mercedes-Maybach S 650 Guard offers the highest level of armor protection available on a production vehicle. The car can withstand high-profile bullets thanks to the improved windows and body.

The power comes from a 6-liter twin-turbo V12 engine. The top speed is limited to 160 km / h. The car is also equipped with special run-flat tires that continue to work in the event of damage or breakdown to ensure a quick escape.
