The view must be awe-inspiring when gods come on their divine rides… A similar sense strikes our minds when we take a look at Master Blaster, Sachin Tendulkar’s, fleet of cars. His garage is full of exotic set of wheels that range from Porsche Boxster to Nissan GT-R. We took a small tour through his parking space and discovered some super-luxurious set of wheels. Let’s take a slightly detailed look at them.
BMW 7-Series 760 Li: Sachin brought this luxury saloon in way before endorsing the brand in India. One of the supreme luxury sedans in the world it carries a 6-litre V12 petrol mill with twin turbochargers. The engine churns out 544bhp for a peak torque of 750Nm. It tops BMW line-up with a price tag of Rs.1.95 crores.
Fiat Palio 1.6: Apart from BMW, Fiat was the second European auto brand that was endorsed by Sachin Tendulkar. In his honor, Fiat brought-in a special edition of FiatPalio that carried Sachin’s signature on its rock panel. Fiat produced 600 units of this car out of which the first one was presented to Sachin as souvenir. The car was loaded with a 1.6-litre, 4-pot petrol engine that churned 100bhp for 140Nm.
Maruti 800: The first car that was bought by the man with his own savings. He was 10 years old when Indian team won the world cup in 1984; also it was the same year when Maruti Suzuki 800 was launched. Both incidents left a deep impression on his mind, so in 1989 when played in the Indian test cricket team it was the first big purchase he made.
BMW M6 Gran Coupe: One of the latest cars to join extended fleet of Cricket’s godman. It is the flagship Gran Turismo model offered by BMW. The car propels on a 4.4-litre V8 engine with twin turbochargers. The petrol motor melds with a 7-speed twin clutch AT to help the car attain a top speed of 250kmph and take a leap from 0-100kmph within 4.4 seconds.
Ferrari Modena 360: The Formula One legend Michael Schumacher presented Sachin with Ferrari Modena in year 2002. Sachin quoted once his great inclination towards fast cars and used to drive his Ferrari over Mumbai roads in wee hours of night. Later, in year 2011, he sold it to a Surat businessman for a price of Rs.1.2 crores.
Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG: It is a performance oriented version of C-Class saloon. The one owned by Master Blaster is one the initial trims of this car that has been retracted from India now. It delivers an output of 520bhpvia a 4-litre V8 petrol mill. Top speed is 250kmph.
Mercedes-Benz 600 SL: A gran turismo car, Mercedes revealed this car way back in 1993. An open top car, it sprints on a V12 6-litre petrol engine that delivers an output of 389bhp for 520Nm torque. The power mill melds with a 4-speed AT to help the car leap from 0-100kmph within 6 seconds and achieve a top speed of253kmph.
Nissan GT-R: The iconic supercar from Nissan, it has been confronting strong rivalry from the likes of Ferrari, Porsches, and Lamborghini since its inception. As extra ordinary as it is, it gets more special as the Godman uses it for his regular outings. Its main highlight is its brute performance that is supported by a 3.8-litre V6 engine with twin turbochargers. The car goes from 0-100kmph in 2.9 seconds and its top speed is 310kmph.
Opel Astra: In late 90s, Opel was reckoned as German name in India that was admired for German proficiency and engineering skills. This one was presented to Sachin as a reward for winning “man of the match” trophy in 1999 Sharjah cup in Pakistan. The car was offered in India with both petrol and diesel engines, however, later it failed to grab people’s attention and bid adieu to market.
Porsche Boxster: An affordable open top from world’s top luxury sports car maker, it has been ravishing Sachin’s car collection from a long time. It employs a 2.7-litre 6-pot petrol mill to churn 315bhp along with a 7-speed twin clutch automatic transmission. The pricing begins from Rs.1.02 crores.
