n India, where cricket is a religion, cricketers not only enjoy god-like status but also the perks of being the highest-paid athletes across any sport in the country.
Their riches afford them the luxury of owning some very expensive set of wheels.
Take Virat Kohli, for instance, who drives an R8 - a car straight from the racing stables of Audi. This two-seater car is a monster and even the base 4.8-litre V8 engine pumps out more than 420 BHP.
The one that Kohli owns has an immensely powerful 5.2L V10 engine that pushes 517 BHP. The car is extremely lightweight and is widely considered to be one of the most beautiful and amazing supercars in the world.
He was recently spotted taking Chris Gayle on a drive in his amazing ride, who seemed just as thrilled.
The R8 has a revolutionary all-wheel-drive system called "Quattro". The car's engine is placed in the middle of the car, instead of being under the bonnet. This provides better balance to the car and makes its handling smoother around corners.Text
