There have been a lot of buzz around the latest addition to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s fleet of cars. While the PM earlier used to move around in a protected Range Rover Vogue and the Toyota Land Cruiser, his new car Mercedes Maybach S 650 Guard, is among the top protected vehicles for VIPs worldwide and is not only both bullet but also blast-proof. While the car definitely looks stunning from the pictures that are doing the rounds, PM Modi isn’t definitely the first or last to enjoy the comfort and ride of such a beauty.
In fact, several star Indian cricketers are known for their luxurious lifestyle and the collection of their cars. In this article here is a look at 3-star cricketers from the nation where the sport is no less than a religion who own such splendid automobile.
1. Sachin Tendulkar
With cricket being a religion in this part of the world, Tendulkar is the man who pretty much single-handedly carried the nation on his shoulders for over two decades. While his first car was a humble Maruti 800, his journey to being the brand ambassador of BMW India not only tells us how far he has come but also how far the sport has progressed in recent years. Sachin’s collection of cars features Ferrari 360 Modena, BMW M6 Gran Coupe, Nissan GT-R as well as a BMW i8.
2. MS Dhoni
While MS Dhoni and bikes is a love story known to many, not many know that he loves his cars as well. Of course, the famous image of the New Zealand team watching in awe outside the Ranchi Airport where Dhoni drove past them in his Hummer had gone viral. The World Cup-winning skipper has Audi Q7, Mitsubishi Pajero SFX and Land Rover Freelander 2 among other cars in his collection.
3. Virat Kohli
Virat Kohli is the brand ambassador of Audi India. He has been endorsing them since 2015 and has changed a few models of the car to date. As per the latest information, Kohli rides an Audi R8 V10 LMX limited edition among other luxury cars. The India Test skipper however is far from being done from international cricket and rarely gets the time to ride his cars for now especially amid the Coronavirus crisis where teams are asked to stay in bio-secure bubbles.
