We are obsessed with cricketers and they with their cars.
Known as the God of cricket, Tendulkar is an automobile enthusiast and also the brand ambassador for BMW India. BMW i8, customised as per his preferences by DC Design; a 750Li M Sport from the BMW-7 series; and the BMW M6 Gran Coupe which comes with a 4.4-litres V8 turbocharged engine, delivering an output of 560 hp and 680 Nm are some of his prized possessions. Apart from these, he also once owned the Ferrari 360 Modena, gifted to him by Michael Schumacher of Formula 1.
Captain of the Indian cricket team, the ever stylish Virat Kohli is also the face of Audi India. Along with Audi’s R8, RS5, Q7 and the latest Q8 (of which he is the first customer) models, he also owns the Lamborghini Gallardo, which achieves top speed of 315 kms per hour and takes four seconds to reach a speed of 100 from zero; although some reports suggest that he recently sold it off.
Only those who’ve been living in a cave wouldn’t know that Dhoni is an automobile fanatic whose garage includes multiple sports cars and bikes. He owns an Audi Q7, the brand’s flagship SUV with its V-12 turbo-diesel engine that delivers a torque of 800 Nm, the Hummer H2 SUV, the GMC Sierra and also the Land Rover Freelander 2, although the model is now discontinued by the brand.
Although he announced his retirement from international cricket, we can’t stop being in awe of his four wheeler collection. He owns the BMW E46 M3 convertible, which was never officially sold in India but privately imported by the former cricket player. Moreover, he received an Audi Q5 from the German automaker for his performance in the 2011 world cup, while the Bentley Continental Flying Spur, the Mercedes Benz S-Class and the Lamborghini Murcielago are also some of the luxury cars parked back in his garage.
He is the second Indian cricketer after MS Dhoni to own the Hummer H2 SUV, which he ordered from London back in 2009 and it cost him a whooping ₹1 crore. He also owns a Ford Endeavour powered by a 3.0 litre turbocharged diesel engine which churns out 156bhp.
His automobile collection ranges from a small Mini Cooper to the Range Rover SUV. He also added to this collection a limited edition Porsche Boxster, a two-seater car priced at ₹1.1 crore.
The all-rounder of the Indian cricket team owns a Lamborghini Huracan EVO which costs nothing less than ₹3.73 crores and takes 2.9 seconds to reach a speed of 100 and nine seconds to achieve a speed of 200. Along with that he is also seen behind the wheels of a black Range Rover and a Mercedes AMG G63
