Continued: Humble cars of the mega stars

M.S. Dhoni

Mahindra Scorpio


Captain cool is more of a bike fan than a car fan. He has a lot of high-end bikes in his garage. On the car front, he is more of a SUV person. In 2007, Mahindra built a custom made version of the Scorpio for him. The SUV has a dual tone colour scheme, large bull guard with auxiliary lamps & the roof has been chopped off to give the wind in the hair feel. There is a roll cage to improve structural rigidity and the SUV  has 4 seats rather than the normal 7. He also has a Pajero.

John Abraham

Maruti Gypsy

John is a car & bike lover. Actually more than cars, he likes SUVs, which do suit his macho personality more. So he has a Q7 which takes care of that need. He also has a Gypsy. Why does he have one? Well his connection with the Gypsy goes back to when he was a kid and the Gypsy was nearing its launch. John’s dad had booked one but for some reason had to cancel the booking & ever since then the Gypsy had a special place in his heart.

Saurav Ganguly

Ford Endeavour


Saurav dada is known as one of India’s most aggressive cricket captains. Most of the time he is spotted in an old Mercedes CLK. However, he also has an old Ford Endeavour in his garage which would seem more practical to keep luggage.

Gautam Gambhir

Mahindra Scorpio

Gautam Gambhir doesn’t have a very flashy lfestyle. His car choices also back that up. He was gifted a Mahindra Bolero Stinger by M&M which is a fully customized version of the Bolero. So much is the love for the company that Gautam went and picked up a new Scorpio which is what he uses.
