Cars & Cricket

Cars fascinate the Indian IPL players as well. Cricketers rightfully utilize the money they earn in exotic cars and fulfill their desire for speed and power. Interesting to see how these different players own different brands which reflect their lifestyle & personality as well.

A look at the machines and their owners:
1. M S Dhoni: Ferrari 599 GTO
Like India's most successful captain, Ferrari 599 GTO is Ferrari's fastest road car ever. With staggering 670 PS at 8250 rpm & 620 NM torque at 6500 rpm, GTO can reach 100 kmph in just 3.3 seconds and has a top speed of 320 kmph!
Dhoni's love for bikes has been known for quiet some time (he owns beauties such as Confederate Hellcat X132, Ducati 1098, Harley Fatboy, Yamaha RD350 & Yamaha YZF600 Thundercat) - But he couldn't resist owning the masterpiece from Ferrari. 

2. Yuvraj Singh: Lamborghini Gallardo
Yuvraj Singh's flamboyancy is known to all of us and Gallardo perfectly suits this cricketer superstar. Gallardo has been Lamborghini's best selling model and is named after a famous breed of fighting bull. The Italian supercar sports a V10 engine which spurts out 552 bhp and 540 Nm of torque.

3. Harbhajan Singh: Hummer H3
Punjabi's are known for their love for SUV's and Bhajji owns the 'Baap of all SUV's' - the Hummer H3. The off-road monster has a 3.7 litre engine with 242 horses on offer.

4. Suresh Raina: Porsche Boxter S
The Chennai Indian star owns the legendary sports car from Porsche which has 326 bhp to offer and is powered by a 3.4 litre engine. No wonder the newly married sportstar's drive has to be utterly romantic!  

5. Virat Kohli: Audi R8 V10
The Royal Challenger star does have a royal taste in cars - Owns a 5.2 litre V10 Audi R8 V10 that offers 541 bhp and 540 Nm of torque. It runs 0-100 km in 3.6 sec on road - speed is somewhat close to how Kohli scores on field.
