Renowned Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar has recently expanded his car collection with the purchase of a brand new Lamborghini Urus S.
Priced at Rs 4.22 crore (ex-showroom) in India, this luxury sports SUV is a testament to Tendulkar’s passion for cars. He is one of the first Indian celebrities to own the latest version of this prestigious vehicle.
While the Urus S retains the overall aesthetic appeal of its previous iterations, there are notable upgrades in its exterior design. These include cooling vents on the bonnet and redesigned front and rear bumpers. Interestingly, Tendulkar seems to have chosen a color similar to his former teammate Rohit Sharma’s Lamborghini, adding a personal touch to his new acquisition.
The Urus S is built for exceptional performance and features an air suspension system with a fixed coil setup to enhance handling. It also offers multiple driving modes such as Sabbia (Sand), Neve (Snow), and Terra (Mud) to optimize performance on various terrains. Positioned just below the Performante version, this new iteration of Lamborghini’s best-selling car has recently been launched in India.
The Urus S marks Tendulkar’s first Lamborghini vehicle in his impressive car collection. However, it is not his first foray into the sports SUV category, as he already owns a Porsche Cayenne Turbo S. The cricketer is frequently spotted driving the Porsche on the streets of Mumbai. It’s worth noting that the Cayenne Turbo S and the Urus S belong to the same category, making Tendulkar’s choice of the Urus S a natural progression.
Tendulkar’s decision to opt for the Urus S can be attributed to its remarkable performance. The SUV is equipped with a 4.0-liter V8 twin-turbo petrol engine that generates 666hp. Paired with an 8-speed torque converter gearbox, it can propel the car from 0-100kph in an impressive 3.6 to 3.5 seconds.
In addition to the Porsche and Lamborghini SUVs, Tendulkar possesses a diverse range of luxury cars, including the BMW 7-Series Li, BMW X5M, BMW i8, and BMW 5-Series, among others. His car collection reflects his affinity for premium automobiles and showcases his discerning taste in high-performance vehicles.
