The used car market is booming in India even when the new car market is going through a slowdown. The luxury used cars are especially very popular in the used car market because of their depreciation value. Even rich and famous celebrities go for the used luxury vehicles in the market because their value comes down drastically within a year or two of ownership. For example, a brand-new Lamborghini Huracan 610-4 can cost you about Rs 4 crores if you decide to buy it new. However, in the used car market, there are many examples of almost-new Lamborghini Huracan sports cars that are only three years old and the asking price is around Rs 1.6 crore! That’s less than 50% of the cost of the car wiped out in just a few years. Also, these cars are low-run and are well-maintained. Here are a few such examples of celebrities owning a used luxury car.

The Indian Cricket team’s captain, Virat Kohli has two Bentley cars. While one of them is stationed in Delhi, the other one is in Mumbai, where he has shifted now.
