Let us give you a quick tour of Anil Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor’s car collection with a range of pricey cars that will certainly steal your hearts.
Sonam Kapoor and Anil Kapoor Cars Collection- From Range Rover Sport To Lamborghini Gallardo
One of the latest rides in the Sonam’s garage, the Mercedes-Benz S400 was an expensive gift from Anil Kapoor to his daughter and then it becomes one of her favourite vehicles in the daily drives. The S-Class is seen with the beautiful actress quite very often. The Mercedes-Benz S400 sits between the S350 and S500 in the model's line-up. The car is powered by a 3.0-litre V6 engine that pumps out 333 BHP of max power and 480 Nm of peak torque. Power is transferred to the rear wheels through a 7-speed G-Tronic AT unit.
While owning a Mercedes-Maybach quickly becomes a trend for many celebrities across the globe, it comes as no surprise that this extremely opulent car is also standing in the Kapoor’s garage. The German luxury sedan comes to grace the Kapoors car collection by a gorgeous-looking appearance and various high-end features like a big rear screen for entertainment or premium massage seats. The Maybach S500 is a made-in-India car that has been imported to the country via the CKD route. Powering the car is a 4.7-litre V8 bi-turbo motor that makes a maximum power and torque of 455 BHP and 700 Nm unit.
Well, Anil Kapoor and his family must be a big loyal fan of BMW since there are a range of BMW models in his luxury cars exhibit. And the BMW 7-Series is quite a prominent name. Though being registered under his wife’s name, the BMW 7-Series has been caught with the Anil very regularly.
The Rs 1.26 crore-worth full-size luxury saloon of the Kapoor is the 730 Ld diesel version that draws the power from a 3.0-litre turbocharged 6-cylinder engine churning out a max power output of 261 BHP at 4,000 rpm and 620 Nm of torque at 2,000- 2,500 rpm. Besides this model, the 63-year-old star also owns another BMW 7-Series of the same kind but for a different body colour option.
Audi A8 L
In case the Audi A8 L is not known to you, well, this is, says, one of the most luxurious Audi-badged sedans that you could find in the market as of today. The A8 L offers a suite of cutting-edge features like the full-digital instrument panel, laser headlamps as well as a high level of convenience and comfort offered for the rear seats. Although the A8L is registered to Sonam, this car has been mostly used by her father on his way to the important events. Powering the Audi A8L sedan is a 3.0-litre diesel burner that comes to produce 246 BHP and 550 Nm of torque.
Tata Safari Storme
Even though the Tata Safari Storme is currently the most humble wheel in the Kapoor’s exotic cars garage, this SUV still deserves some respects for its certain values. Tata Motors sent this special edition of the Safari Storme to Anil as a gift to promote a famous TV show named “24” in which Anil plays a main role. And various reports have claimed that the large home-grown carmaker had specially manufactured the SUV for the Anil’s character in the TV show. This Safari Storme employs a 2.2-litre Varicor turbo-diesel motor making 148 BHP and 320 Nm of torque. There is a more powerful version of Tata Safari Storme available in current the market too.
Clearly, Anil Kapoor should have an in-depth love for the Mercedes S-Class, since barring the S400, he also takes possession of the W221 and W222 S-Class. The latter has been sold for another person already, though. The Mercedes-Benz S-Class owned by Anil Kapoor gets a 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine under its hood. For your information, this kind of engine is currently the most popular option offered within the S-Class’s lineup in India.
This handsome Lamborghini Gallardo has been seen using by Anil’s son, Harshvardhan Kapoor most of the time. The young Bollywood actor drives around in this white convertible version of the super sports car multiple times that totally wins people’s admiration for his wealthy lifestyle to say the least. The ultra-impressive Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder deploys a massive 5.2-litre V10 petrol engine that generates 560 BHP of max power at 8,000 rpm along with a whopping 540 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm. Power is sent to the four wheels through a 6-speed automatic transmission.
While the Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder is Harshvardhan’s favourite super-fast luxury car for his tarmac-tearing drive, the BMW 5-Series should be a perfect vehicle during his daily chores. Though the car has not been seen with Harshvardhan as much as it used to in the initial days, the BMW 5-Series is still a desirable sedan for normal people like us.
Like many other celebrities around the world, Sonam Kapoor also falls in love with the Land Rover Range Rover Sport. The beautiful lady has been spotted with the premium SUV for many times on her ways to the parties or the shooting places. It remains to know how much the Kapoor shelled out for this white Range Rover Sport, but it will surely cost you an arm and a leg.
