Saw Dhoni's new black Land Rover Freelander outside his brother-in-law's place last night. The car is running on temp WB plates. Could not click a pic though. Also saw his Hummer H2 and Mitsubishi Pajero being washed couple of days back at Dhoni's residence.

Duh! MSD has good taste with bikes, wish I could say the same about his cars as well.

It’s high time he moved into more tasteful and classy automobiles. Hummer H2, LRF2, Pajero, Scorpio, and what’s new, a GMC Sierra (for cryin’ out loud!). Looks like he’s still in his childhood big bad SUV dream.

I agree, to each their own, but being such a famous personality, I think its about time he gifted himself something a bit more gentleman’ish.

if someone loves SUV - what can we say?

though i believe he could have got the range rover or something instead of the freelander - but let's face it - their money - they know where they want to spend.

remember why dhoni got famous?? long hair - extreme batting style. there was nothing gentleman'ish about that!! what better way to express your true self - than a car??
even if it's a SUV

That’s why I said, “to each their own” in my previous post. He can do whatever he pleases with his money. What I said was my take on his choice.

The long hair is now long gone, so did most of the “extreme” batting, so why not mature a bit in the automobile department too?

Should go for the G-wagon. He could learn a thing or two from his best friend Yuvraj Singh.

Isn't this an old news? Heard that he got a R8 instead of this Q5 after paying the difference in price.

Just came across this update on AutoCar India.

Kapil Dev goes Porsche

"Cricket World Cup-winning former India captain and fast bowler Kapil Dev took delivery of the first-ever Panamera diesel in the country on Friday."

I am not 100% sure on this as i vaguely remember a Builder in Ahmedabad taking delivery of a Diesel Panamera sometime around Janmasthmi period. Shall check on this

Anil Reddi, Director of Porsche India, hands over the first Porsche Panamera Diesel to Kapil Dev. Power comes from a 3.0 litre V6 diesel with 550 Nm torque on tap.
