Audi R8 V10 Plus
The Audi R8 is a name synonymous with absolute bonkers of performance and Virat surely owns one because of his own playing style as well. R8 is the most powerful sportscar from Audi and is retailed at a price tag of INR 2.47 crores (ex showroom Delhi). The 5.2 litre naturally aspirated V10 engine is capable of putting out a massive power of 610 bhp to keep the drivers on the edge of their seats. All this power is delivered to all four wheels due to the Quattro system and the transmission is a 7-speed twin clutch DSG unit.
Audi R8 LMX Limited Edition
Virat seems to have been left enamoured by Audi cars, especially the R8 with this LMX being a special edition. The car features a special laser high beam lighting and is the first in India. It is hauled by a V10 5.2 litre engine that comes mated to a 7-speed S-tronic gearbox punching out about 570 bhp with 540 nm of torque.

Audi A8L W12 Quattro
By this time you would be thinking that Audi and Virat has a thing going on, but when Virat wants to get driven out in a classy and elegant looking car he chooses the limousine Audi A8L. This flagship model from Audi is priced at an ex-showroom tag of INR 1.98 crore. The cricketing heartthrob got the keys to his ride in 2015. It features a longer wheelbase than the regular A8 and comes with a 6.3 litre W12 engine that is connected to a S-tronic, dual clutch, 8 speed gearbox giving out a massive power of 494 bhp with 625 nm of torque. It also features the Audi Quattro system.
Audi RS6 Avant
The Audi RS6 Avant is the performance oriented station wagon version of the regular A6 sedan and goes perfectly well with the fast hitting performance of Virat in cricket matches. The car is powered by a 4.0 litre V8 petrol engine with twin turbochargers to give out a supreme 420 bhp of power with max torque of 550 nm. The engine is married to a 7-speed twin clutch automatic transmission system along with the Quattro system powering all four wheels. This results in ultimate grip and great performance when hitting the track. The price tag is a spiked INR 95.25 lakh.
The powerful SUV screams opulence and conquers roads like no other car can. This is the most preferred ride for other cricketers like Ravi Shastri as well as some B-town celebrities. The Audi Q7 is available in two variants- a 4.2 litre V8 and 3 litre V6 diesel engine. The two engines are mated together with an 8-speed auto gearbox and Audis trademark Quattro system with all wheel drive feature. The pricing for the luxurious SUV begins from INR 72.9 lakh( ex showroom).
The Toyota Fortuner was one of the first few cars owned by the swashbuckling cricketer. He also happens to be Toyotas brand ambassador and got this as a gift from the brand. The previous Fortuner was sold at a price of INR 24.17 lakh to INR 26.49 lakh. A D-4D diesel engine which is capable of producing 170 bhp with 343 Nm is at the heart.
This Renault Duster has won many hearts over just like Virat does on the field and this makes it a required part in his garage. Virat Kohli won the Duster as a prize for his heroics in Sri Lankan one-day series which earned him the Man of the series award and the car.
