David Beckham is a footballer who needs no introduction. He has played for many of the top ranked teams like Manchester United and Real Madrid. Since he is one of the richest footballers, he has a whole fleet of exotic cars. Here are his top 10 vehicles.
Rolls Royce Phantom Drop Head Coupe
The most exotic car in his garage is the Phantom Drop Head Coupe. The car is the most expensive Rolls on sale and also happens to be the most expensive vehicle in India today. The DHC as it is called is powered by a 6.75 liter V12 engine making 453 Bhp and 720 Nm.
Beckham’s DHC is in a black sahde with custom aftermarket 24″ black rims that look killer. The DHC is based on the Phantom and takes its design cues from the 100 EX concept car that Rolls Royce showcased in 2004.
Rolls Royce Ghost
The footballer loves the Rolls Royce brand quite a bit. He previously owned the larger Phantom which he replaced with the new Ghost. His Ghost is also black and features custom black rims. The Ghost is the baby Rolls Royce and was built for younger people who sometimes want to drive themselves as well.
The Ghost is based on the BMW 7 Series and even though the car weighs so much, it handles pretty well for a luxury vehicle of that size. Powering the Ghost is a 6.6 liter V12 engine making 562 Bhp and 782 Nm. A really cool thing about the Ghost is that the car comes with a transmission which is synced to the navigation system and depending upon the terrain and road ahead, the gearbox makes changes to make sure that you have adequate amount of power at all times.
The latest addition to Beckham’s garage has been the massive Bentley SUV, the Bentayga. His Bentayga is in an interesting Grey shade with the 22″ alloys. The Bentayga is based on the EXP 9 F concept vehicle which was highly criticized for its not so good design. Powering it is a 6.0 liter twin turbocharged W12 engine making 600 Bhp and 900 Nm.
The Bentayga is based on the MLB platform which underpins the new Porsche Cayenne and the Audi Q7 but Bentley claims that 80% of the parts are unique to the Bentayga.
Bentley recently launched the Bentayga in the Indian market as well and it became India’s most fastest and most expensive SUV on sale. There are quite a few that have already reached our shores as well.
Bentley Continental Supersports
Staying with the Bentley brand, Beckham also has a white Continental Supersports. When it was launched in 2009, it was the most powerful Bentley ever and had a top speed of more than 320 kmph.
Powering the vehicle is the 6.0 liter twin turbocharged w12 engine making 621 Bhp and 800 Nm. The engine is mated to a 6 speed ZF gearbox and 0-100 comes up in 3.9 seconds which is really quick given how luxurious this car feels. It features light weight 20″ alloys and came with carbon ceramic brakes as standard.
The Mulsanne is Bentley’s flagship model which was unveiled in 2009. Since Beckham loves the brand, he had to have one. He has been spotted being chauffeured around in it a few times. The vehicle, like all his other luxury barges is painted in black.
Powering the Mulsanne is a 6.75 liter twin turbo V8 that produces 506 Bhp and 1020 Nm. Though the Mulsanne is quick, it is more suited to rear seat comfort and luxury.
Mclaren MP4-12C Spider
The MP4-12 C was the first car that Mclaren built after a long hiatus. The vehicle was designed to compete against the Ferrari 458 and it managed to beat the Ferrari around the track courtesy all the electronics on board. Beckham has one in black.
The vehicle was introduced in 2012 and features a 3.8 liter twin turbocharged engine producing 616 Bhp and 601 Nm. It has a top speed of 328 kmph and does 0-100 in 3.1 seconds.
Looks like David is a huge fan of British cars. This British car love continues with the Jag F-Type. David does have a connection with JLR as it was his wife helped who helped with the designing of the Evoque.
The F-Type initially only came as a convertible and came with 3 options options interms of power output, a V6, V6S and a V8 with power ranging from 340 Bhp to 550 Bhp. The F-Type looks and sounds fabulous.
Chevrolet Camaro SS
Coming to the first non British car on the list, David sold his Porsche to buy the Camaro SS. The vehicle is finished in a unique shade as well. The SS was introduced in 2008 at the Detroit Motorshow.
Powering the SS is a 6.2 liter V8 engine making 416 Bhp and 563 Nm. It came with either a 6 speed manual or a 6 speed automatic.
Range Rover Vogue
The Range Rover Vogue is the flagship of the Range Rover brand. It is regarded as the S Class of SUVs. It is very plush, luxurious and is immensely capable off-road as well. Beckham has had a few of them and his latest one is also black, like most of his other cars.
The Vogue is available in both short and long wheel base variants and has quite a few engines on offer. It has a 3.0 liter hybrid option, a 3.0 liter V6 petrol and even a 5.0 liter V8 supercharged engine making 510 Bhp. The diesel engines on offer are a 3.0 liter V6 and a 4.4 liter V8 making 340 Bhp.
The S8 is a super fast luxury sedan and Beckham seems to have got one of those as well. The car is finished in grey unlike his other cars. Powering the S8 is a 4.0 liter twin turbocharged V8 that produces 512 Bhp and 649 Nm. This is the same engine that goes into the S6 as well.
The engine features cylinder on demand technology which manages to shut down upto 4 cylinders if the driver is driving in a relaxed pace. But when you are in a hurry, this luxury sedan will take you from 0-100 in a brisk 4.2 seconds all the way to an electronically limited top speed of 250 kmph. Sadly the previous generation’s V10 is missed though.
