Sachin is also a brand ambassador for BMW in India, and owns a BMW M5, M6 Gran Coupe and last year he bough an i8, which he got custom painted to red.

Now, he owns something much, much more expensive and much more powerful - a Lamborghini Murceilago. Not just the Lambo, Yuvraj also has a Porsche 911, a BMW M5 and an Audi A5, which was a gift from Lalit Modi for historic six sixes.
