India’s famous singers are many, and some have become pop stars in their own right. And rappers are literally the country’s rockstars. From the clothes they wear to the cars they drive, they do things in style. Now, cars mean our interest is piqued. So here it is, our list that brings together India’s famous singers and their cars.
Sonu Nigam is perhaps India’s first big pop star. The singer has also acted in a few movies and has various indipop albums to his credit. All this has allowed him to lead a luxurious life, as evidenced by the Range Rover he drives in. The Range Rover that the singer drives and is driven is the last generation version model. The luxurious SUV is a standard fixture among the rich and famous, not just in India but worldwide.
Rapstar Honey Singh may be seen in Audi R8s and Lamborghinis in his music videos, but when it comes to having a daily ride, the man has chosen a tried and tested option in the form of the Audi Q7. The luxury crossover is Audi’s flagship and a vehicle that has found big favour among the swish set of the country. The crossover is sold with 3 liter V6 and 4.2 liter V8 turbo diesel engines.
Badshah is one rapper who made waves much before Honey Singh did. The man has taste, at least in terms of what he drives. A BMW 640d coupe is what Badshah has as his daily drive. The high performance car is powered by a 3 liter-6 cylinder, twin turbo diesel motor that puts out 313 Bhp and 630 Nm. That’s enough to propel it and Badshah from nought to 100 Kph in under 6 seconds.
Punjabi pop sensation and one of the biggest popstars of the country in his time, Daler Mehndi likes his cars loud. The man drives a Porsche Cayenne SUV with a gold wrap. Now, that is loud. The Cayenne is a luxury SUV that has been a money spinner for Porsche and is the sportscar maker’s best selling vehicle in India.
Composer and singer Anu Malik has been around for decades. The man’s daily drive is a BMW X1, one that combines luxury with ground clearance adequate for Indian roads. The other drive of course is the bullet proof reliable Toyota Corolla.
Mika Singh’s Hummer H2
Mika Singh is Daler Mehndi’s brother and big singer in his own right. The man drives about town in a show stopper – the Hummer H2. Originally designed for use by the US Army, civilian variants of the Hummer have now become lifestyle vehicles. The large and very thirsty off roader is no longer built as its maker has gone belly up.
