Mahendra Singh Dhoni has built himself an empire based on sheer talent. The ex-Indian skipper is not only a big-time hit on the field but also off it – with his collection of cars and bikes. The auto enthusiast has a slew of cars that would make even the most prolific of car collectors, green with envy.
Let’s take a look at some of the luxurious cars owned by him:
Ferrari 599 GTO
The car holds a special place in the heart of Dhoni as it was gifted to the player after he led India to victory in the 2011 World Cup. The supercar, under the hood, is powered by a 6.0 litre V12 naturally aspirated petrol engine that generates 661 hp of power and 620 Nm of torque. Priced over ₹1.39 crore, the car can reach up to 100km/hr in less than 3.5 seconds.
Remember the picture from last year when New Zealand players sat in a bus with massive awe on their faces as Dhoni drove his Hummer alongside in Ranchi. Priced at roughly ₹75 lakh, the car is powered by a 6.2-litre V8 petrol engine that generates a maximum power of 393 Bhp!
Land Rover Freelander 2
The Freelander 2 is another luxury SUV in Dhoni’s garage. The model had been discontinued in 2014 but it used to be the brand’s entry-level luxury SUV. The SUV carried a 2.2-litre diesel engine that churned out a maximum of 148 Bhp and 420 Nm. It was also available in a more powerful 187 Bhp tuning. The ex-showroom price of the car ranged between ₹35-48 lakh.
Dhoni owns the previous-generation Audi Q7 30 TDI Quattro in black color and it is powered by a 2,967 cc diesel engine that produces around 242 hp of power and 550 Nm of torque. Various other celebs like Bipasha Basu, Deepika Padukone, Virat Kohli, John Abraham, and Emraan Hashmi and many others own this stunning beauty. This car is no longer in production and was priced at over ₹64 lakh.
Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk
The Indian captain cool became the first owner of the Jeep Grand Cherokee in India. A 6.2-litre supercharged V8 HEMI engine powers the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk and can sprint from 0-100 in just 3.2 seconds! This one generates 707 bhp with the help of the above-mentioned engine paired to an 8-speed automatic gearbox and is priced at a staggering ₹1.12 crore (ex-showroom) in India.
This vehicle was used by the Indian army and he bought it to add it to his collection. The car weighs 1 ton and is equipped with a 3956cc engine and priced at ₹6 lakh (ex-showroom). This model has since been discontinued.
Dhoni is the only one in India to own this gorgeous pickup truck manufactured by General Motors. Powered by a 6.2-litre V8 engine that generates 414bhp and 623Nm torque, it is priced at approximately ₹70 lakh.
