Young cricketing sensation of India, Virat Kohli, has a distinctive style on the field. The test captain of the Indian cricket team keeps up with his style statement alive off the pitch with a series of Audi cars. Here are the German four ringed beauties that Virat owns.
Virat has the world’s fastest Audi – the R8 LMX
There are only 99 examples of the R8 LMX in the world and Virat has got one in his garage. The car is powered a massive 5.2-litre V10 engine that produces a maximum power of 570 BHP and peak torque of 540 Nm. The car can zoom from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds and can hit a top speed of 320 km/h.
The speciality about the R8 LMX is its headlamps. The car uses laser technology to light up the roads. The whole package costs Rs. 2.97 crore, ex-showroom. So, we’re talking about an on-road price of about 3.5 crore rupees. That’s a lot of money.
He has not one but 2 Audi supercars
Say hello to the R8 V10. Before buying the R8 LMX, Virat had already experienced the world of supercars through his R8. He’s said to be a regular at Buddh International Circuit, a place where he can unleash his supercar, safely. The white coloured R8 he owns is powered by a 5.2-litre V10 petrol engine that produces a maximum of 525 BHP and 530 Nm of maximum torque. The car carried a price tag of around Rs. 2 crore.
Even for his luxury car needs, he looks to Audi
Sports cars are good but what about luxury when you are going on that candle light dinner? Well, Virat has the Audi’s flagship sedan, the A8 L to fulfil this need. The long wheelbase A8 is the most luxurious car that carries the Audi logo. The car is powered by a massive 6.3-litre engine in W12 form.
There is 494 BHP, 625 Nm on tap. Virat has customised the car according to his needs with wooden inserts on the interiors. The price? Rs. 1.98 crore, with “only” added for him.
Why, he even fulfills his SUV cravings with an Audi: Q7!
Everyone needs an SUV for the weekend trips and to get a bird eye’s view of city traffic. Virat has one in form of the flagship SUV from Audi, the Q7. The massive SUV offers a host of technologically advanced features. Even though the Q7 is quite heavy, it has performance to match. The big Audi uses a 4.2-litre V6 diesel engine that produces a maximum of 322 BHP and 760 Nm to power the car. Now, that’s a fast SUV!
Ok, here’s the humdinger. Virat Kohli is the Audi India brand ambassador
Even though Virat has mentioned in an interview that he loves Audi cars for their design, the cricket star is a brand ambassador for the company. He charged Audi Rs. 5 crore for 18 months to promote their vehicles and be the face of their brand in India. Virat has been present at a lot of Audi car launches along with other celebrities who also endorses the brand in India. Here are few images of him at Audi launches.
