Men In Blue And Their On-going Love Affair With Luxury Cars

Men in Blue, also known as the Indian Cricket Team, are known more for their off-the-field flamboyance than their on-field antics. But, while they may love their bat or ball as the case maybe, they also love their women and cars. Can you guess some of the names of these sportsmen?

Porsche Boxter

While these men in blue regale and entertain us on the field with their cricketing antics, they also manage to hog the limelight with their on-road antics, their flashy rides. A sign of success, these cricketers are sure having a helluva ride! Let’s join them and get to know them a little better through their bevy of beautiful beamers.

Nissan GT-R 350

Sachin Tendulkar – The master blaster, God of Cricket, there are many epithets that can describe him. But, Sachin doesn’t just love cricket, he loves cars too. Proud owners of some of the more glamorous rides, today he owns around 40 cars including current BMW 7 Series sedan, Porsche Boxter (a 252.1BHP sports car), a Mercedes-Benz C36, the awesome Nissan GT-R 350 that can churn out 480BHP of power, as well as BMW M5, BMW X5, Volvo S80 and his Saharjah Cup price, a black Opel Astra.

Hummer H2
MS Dhoni – Everyone knows Mahi loves milk, cricket, and cars & bikes...well maybe not in that order. And as his star on the Indian cricket scene rises, so does his penchant for buying cars. With a large collection of cars, Dhoni owns some amazing cars including a Toyota Corolla, a Mitsubishi Pajero, and a customized, open-topped Mahindra Scorpio. But the one that takes the cake is the Hummer H2, which came at a cost of Rs 1Cr. This gargantuan machine is 17ft in length and 7ft in width and has a 6, 200cc engine!


Yuvraj Singh - Not one to be left behind, Yuvraj Singh, the flashy left-hander also loves cars. In keeping with his macho persona, Yuvi has several prime samples of German engineering including the ICC World Cup 2007 price, a Porsche 911, an Audi Q5, a Mercedes-Benz, a BMW M5, & a BMW M3.

Hummer H3
Harbhajan Singh - The ‘Turbinator’ has a love for flashy and premium SUVs. The only other person after Mahi to own a Hummer, Bhajji has a Hummer H3 that is powered by a 3.7-litre diesel engine. He also has a Ford Endeavour.

BMW 7 Series

Sourav Ganguly - One of the most successful Indian captains, Dada is into cars in a big way. His garage is full of cars ranging from Rs 40L to Rs 1.2Cr. With a fleet of 36 cars including 20 Mercedes-Benz, 4 BMWs, including a BMW 730Ld that was shipped directly from BMW’s HQ in Munich in 2009. But despite his flashy and sizable garage, Dada drives around in his Opel Astra in Kolkatta, his hometown.
