Indian Cricketer Yuvraj Singh has one of the most charming personalities whether on-field or away from cricket. The all-rounder has lived up to the reputation of being an energetic and adventurous person. Yuvraj Singh's 6 sixes against England, his battle against cancer and hattrick in IPL are some of the instances the cricketer is famous for but what concerns Express Drives the most on his birthday is his love for cars and motorcycles. Not many might know this but Yuvraj is a keen auto enthusiast and like one would expect from a young celebrity, his collection of cars and bikes is quite interesting. Yuvraj Singh is a car nut and has been seen driving fancy sportscars, big SUVs and convertibles. From the luxurious Mercedes-Benz S-Class and Bentley Continental to sports cars such as the Porsche 911 to Lamborghini Murcielago are what the cricketer owns. On his birthday, here's a closer look at the car and bike collection of Yuvraj Singh.
Soon after the 2011 Word Cup the hero and Man of The Series award of the winning team Yuvraj Singh got an all new Audi Q5 SUV being gifted by the German premium car maker. The ceremony was a glitzy affair and was attended by Ravi Shastri who has been Audi's widely publicised customer for a long time.
Bentley has been one of the favourite car brands for celebrities and despite being an old car it suits Yuvraj Singh's personality. Yuvi has been spotted several times driving this car and seems he's very fond of it. The British marque is known for making extravagantly luxurious cars with an impressive performance. While Bentleys may not be at home around corners, they can rocket past many smaller and agile sports cars on a straight stretch of road.
BMW M3 convertible:
Yuvi's stint with Kings XI Punjab in IPL brought the BMW M3 Convertible finished in Gold in limelight. Yuvraj was seen driving with the roof down with his then team mate Bret Lee. The M3 is known for delivering blistering performance on straights and surgical precision on corners. Having it in a convertible body style simply adds to the visual and wow appeal of the popular performance car.
Porsche 911, BMW M5, Mercedes-Benz S-Class are other few cars Yuvraj Singh has been seen in and he's also known to have a passion for bikes. The Porsche 911 is proof of his inclination towards cars with proven performance. The 911 has a performance pedigree of decades that is still unparalleled in the world of sport cars. The car is popularly known for its rear wheel drive and rear engine setup, which many have found quite challenging to master when going fast.
I remember Yuvraj Singh winning the Hero Honda CBZ Xtreme in one of the man of the match awards and Yuvi along with then captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni riding it the stadium. Yuvraj Singh had also unveiled a customised bike in 2015 India Bike Week. The aggressive cricketer has lived his life in style despite several ups and downs and there is a lot to learn from the cricketer regarding his courageous approach towards life. As he celebrates his 36th birthday today, we at Express Drives wish him a healthy and successful life in the years to come.
