Default Yuvraj Singh's small yet tasteful car collection

One of the most celebrated cricketers globally, Yuvraj Singh has a small but tasteful collection of cars.

Here are some of the rides he has owned and those that occupy the garage of the man who hit 6 sixes in an over!

BMW X6 M

Fast variant of the second generation of the Coupe-SUV. It gets a 4.4L V8 petrol engine. It is said that this car was bought pre-worshipped. Belonged to Dilip Chhabria's son earlier.

BMW E46 M3 Convertible

One of the most sought-after generations of the M3, and a pretty rare car in India as well. This convertible E46 M3 has a hardtop. Was wrapped later.

Bentley Continental GT

The Bentley Continental GT replaced the famed Lamborghini Murcielago in Yuvi's garage. This one is powered by a V8.

BMW M5 E60

Man has taste! Yuvraj already had a V10-powered blue BMW M5 E60, which was later sold. He got another used E60 M5 from Big Boys Toyz, which was wrapped in blue.

Audi Q5

This Q5 was gifted to Yuvraj by Audi for hitting 6 sixes in the T20 World Cup.

BMW G 310R

Yuvraj took delivery of this bike in 2018. The G 310 R was co-developed by BMW and TVS.

Lamborghini Murcielago

The cricketer famously had a V12 Murcielago which was replaced by the Bentley Continental GT. Interestingly, he bought the Lamborghini from a BHPian.

1st-gen Honda City Vtec
This was his first car. It was later sold through an Ebay auction for 4.46 lakhs, the proceeds of which went to charity.

Hadn't Lalit Modi said that Yuvraj Singh will be gifted a Porsche 911 for his stupendously good performance in some match? What happened to that? Don't see any pictures of him & the Porsche.

I do remember seeing a photo of him with a yellow Porsche in the local edition of The Tribune newspaper more than a decade ago. Tried to Google it but there is only one reference to it here:

The yellow car in this news does not look like a 911.

He bought the Murcielago from a BHPian? Wow, how I do wish we had an ownership thread about the same.

There is a thread about the same, https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/super...case-bull.html (My LP640 - "The eagle has landed, (or in this case, the bull)")

It wasn't Lalit Modi, it was another politician who was heading or in the senior committee of the BCCI back then. I am guessing like most promises made by politicians, this one was not kept either

Guess it was Sharad Pawar who announced the cash prize as he headed BCCI back then, it was in 2007 when we won the inaugural T20 WC and the whole team was given 80L each and Yuvraj got additional 1Cr for hitting those sixes .
The Porsche was specifically promised by Lalit Modi to any player who hits 6 sixes in an over, but never saw any photo of it. This story is mentioned in Rajdeep Sardesai's book about cricket.

Impressive, except for the X6. It's an ugly car.
Other BMW's are truly tastefull.

The yellow car in that pic is his E46 M3. I don't think he received the 911. Wonder if he actually took delivery of the Q5 too; Never seen a pic of the same outside showroom.

Along with talent and taste, the man also seems to have brains as after reading earlier posts it seems that most of his cars are Pre-worshipped.

I agree that BMW X6's looks are polarizing. Either you love it or hate it. Personally, I like X6's imposing looks and its raw power. For me, it's not an ugly car in any means.

He sold off the bentley and bought 2018 range rover vogue 3.0L in black/ dark blue, i believe.

Fantastic and tasteful collection. Out of the German 3, Merc is missing. I'm curious to know if he hasn't found anything he likes yet or just not keen on the brand.
