The Thackerays & their cars; From Land Cruiser to Mercedes-Benz S-Class
The Thackrey family has been in politics for a long time now. The family has been recently in the news for Maharashtra government formation. The Thackereys are an influential family and move around in a slew of luxury and imported vehicles. Here are some of the high-end cars that they use regularly to commute.
Uddhav Thackrey, the newly elected Chief Minister of Maharashtra state uses the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class. It was the flagship SUV from the luxury carmaker from Germany before they officially changed the nomenclature of the models and named it GLS. It is an expensive SUV and comes loaded with a range of features. Uddhav Thackerey has been seen using the white coloured GLS on multiple occasions. Since Maharashtra CMs get an armoured Tata Safari as their official vehicles, Uddhave may also start using the same car in the future.
Uddhav and his cousin, Raj Thackerey have been spotted sharing a light blue coloured, old-generation S-Class saloon in Mumbai on multiple occasions. Even though the pair are not spotted together anymore, the vehicle is still around and is used by Uddhav Thackerey every now and then.
BMW 5 GT
Aditya Thackerey in his official election filings revealed that he uses a used BMW 5GT that is worth Rs 6.5 lakhs. The Blue Lagoon coloured 5 GT used by Aditya has been spotted with him on multiple occasions and he has even used the vehicle for election campaigns. The BMW 5 GT is known for its exemplary space and is a very practical car for families going on weekend trips.
Land Rover Range Rover
Well, the Land Rover Range Rover is a common name in the garages of the rich and famous and even Aditya Thackerey owns one. Even the Range Rover used by him is in a similar deep blue colour as the BMW. Last year, the luxury SUV was in the news when it suffered multiple punctures due to the bad Mumbai roads in the wee hours.
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is one of the most luxurious sedans available in the country and owned by many celebrities and politicians. He has been spotted driving the vehicle all by himself regularly. Raj Thackeray has a few high-profit businesses, which allows him to move around in such high-end vehicles.

Toyota Land Cruiser is something that is owned by numerous celebrities around the world. The bulletproof reliability of the Land Cruiser makes it the first choice of many including the celebrities. Also, the Land Cruiser is extremely capable and go through extremely challenging routes. Raj Thackeray loves to drive around and has been spotted driving in his old-generation Land Cruise multiple times.
