The young, dashing and successful Virat Kohli is known for many qualities on the field. Off the field, Kohli’s passion lies in cars and he owns a lot of them! Kohli is the official brand ambassador of Audi India and has a range of Audi cars in his garage which he uses regularly. Apart from the German brand, Virat also owns quite a few other luxury brands. Here are cars of Virat Kohli caught on video.
This 2012 Audi R8 V10 was one of the first sportscars owned by Virat Kohli. The white coloured R10 was sold by Virat in 2016 and got replaced by another, latest-generation R8. Virat has been spotted quite often in this R8 and was a regular visitor of the BIC where he participated in the track days. Here in the video, Kohli can be seen giving a joy ride to the West Indies batsman Chris Gayle, who came to India for a cricket tournament.
Bentley Continental GT
Virat got his hands on a second-hand Bentley Continental GT last year. The car is stationed at Delhi and whenever he is home, he is spotted roaming around on the streets in the Bentley. A new Continental GT can cost up to Rs 3.84 crores, depending on the version. The car is powered by a 4.0-litre V8 petrol engine that produces a maximum of 500 Bhp and peak torque of 660 Nm. The higher variant gets out a maximum of 521 Bhp from the same engine while the torque figure bumps up to 680 Nm. An even more powerful 6.0-litre petrol engine is also available that generates a maximum of 567 Bhp and 700 Nm of peak torque.
Land Rover Range Rover Vogue
Virat Kohli also owns a white-coloured Land Rover Range Rover Vogue. The vehicle is used by him often whenever he’s in the town. The Indian captain owns the top-spec diesel variant of the SUV. It gets powered by a 4.4-litre SDV8 engine that generates a maximum power of 335 Bhp and a peak torque of 740 Nm. The car gets his favourite “1818” number on the registration plate.
Kohli has a range of performance cars that have been provided to him by Audi as a part of his perks of being a brand ambassador. The S5 is the coupe-styled sedan and carries a price tag of Rs 70.6 lakh, ex-showroom. It produces a maximum power of 349 Bhp from the 3.0-litre V6 turbocharged engine. The power is sent to all the four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The Audi RS5 belongs to the same family as the S5 but is much more powerful and is track-oriented. It gets a huge price tag of Rs 1.1 crore and comes to India as a CBU. The performance car carries a 2.9-litre turbocharged petrol engine that generates a maximum power of 444 Bhp and a peak torque of 600 Nm. All the power is used to propel the car from standstill to 100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds. Virat Kohli became the first owner of the car when it was launched in India.
