Hyderabad: A luxurious 2013 model orange Lamborghini once owned by Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli is on sale for Rs 1.35 crore at a Kochi showroom called Royal Drive. The Lamborghini – a Gallardo Spyder, was bought by Kohli in 2015 but he sold it after a few months.
The showroom which sells used luxury cars shared that they bought this celebrity car from a Kolkata-based premium, and luxury pre-owned car dealer in January 2021.
“This is a 2013 model Lamborghini used by the cricketer for a short period. It has run only up to 10,000km,” said the marketing manager at Royal Drive.
Among the best-selling Lamborghini cars, the Gallardo Spyder – named after an 18th-century bullfighting breeder Francisco Gallardo – was first unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 2008. Also called the LP560-4, the model is powered by a V10 engine that can generate a power of up to 560 PS, and can go from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in only 3.7 seconds.
Virat Kohli is known to be a motorhead who owns expensive cars like Bentley Continental GT, Land Rover Vogue and several models of the Audi. In addition, the Indian captain has also been serving as a brand ambassador for Audi India since 2015.
Meanwhile, the batsman is currently in the UAE where the second leg of IPL 2021 is under way. Last week, Kohli announced that he will give up his T20I captaincy after the T20 World Cup that will be played next month.
Adding to the sensational statement, the cricketer last night announced that he will relinquish his captaincy for RCB after IPL 2021.
