Sachin Tendulkar is called the God of cricket, and today he has completed 50 years of his age. But in this article, we will tell you about his love for cars along with his passion for cricket. Let’s explore Sachin Tendulkar’s car collection.
Sachin Tendulkar’s first car was a Maruti 800. Let me tell you, this car was considered a dream car in the 1980s, and during an interview, he also mentioned that it was his dream car. After this car, he also bought a Maruti Esteem.

Nissan GT-R Egoist
The Nissan GT-R Egoist, affectionately known as “The Godzilla,” represents a limited-edition variant of the renowned Nissan GT-R. With a mere 39 units in existence worldwide, India is privileged to house just one of these extraordinary automobiles.
Sachin Tendulkar’s Egoist gained immense popularity among car enthusiasts, thanks to its striking Wald-body kit. However, it’s worth noting that the former cricketer parted ways with this formidable machine, selling it to a devoted car collector in Mumbai back in 2017.
Equipped with a dominant 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 engine, the car generates an impressive power output of 562 bhp, accompanied by a torque of 637 Nm. Its remarkable performance capabilities include accelerating from 0 kph to 100 kph in a mere 2.9 seconds.
Sachin Tendulkar owns BMW’s flagship sports car, the i8, which is priced at 2.54 crore rupees. This car has an electric motor along with a 1.5-liter petrol engine, producing 520 Nm torque and 357 bhp power.
The Audi Q7 is a well-known luxury SUV. Sachin Tendulkar has the blue-colored model of this car, which is equipped with a 4.2-liter TDI diesel engine.
Mercedes-Benz C36 AMG
In the 1990s, Mercedes-Benz introduced the remarkable C36 AMG, featuring a robust 3.6-liter 6-cylinder engine capable of delivering 280 bhp power. During Tendulkar’s ownership, this particular car stood as the sole representative of its kind within the country. Despite its uniqueness, this automobile did not remain in the possession of the former cricketer for an extended period, resulting in limited discussion surrounding it.
BMW M6 Gran Coupe
When BMW launched this model in India, the first delivery of this car was given to cricketer Sachin Tendulkar.
BMW 7-Series 750L
The esteemed brand ambassador of BMW is the proud owner of a commanding 7-series 760-liter beast. With a price tag of INR 1.95 crore, this magnificent automobile houses a formidable 6.0-liter V12 engine, generating an impressive capacity of 544 bhp and a torque of 750 Nm.
While this car may not be uncommon among BMW owners in India, the former cricketer has added a special touch to its interior. Embroidered with the initials ‘ST,’ as depicted in the accompanying picture, this personalized feature renders the car truly unique to him.
In 2010, Sachin Tendulkar became the first batsman to score a double century in a One-Day International (ODI), and as a reward, he received a Volvo S80.
Sachin Tendulkar is the brand ambassador for BMW in India, so he owns several cars from this company. He bought the BMW X5M SUV model in 2002.
Ferrari 360 Modena:
Formula One champion Michael Schumacher gifted this Ferrari car model to Sachin Tendulkar in 2002. However, he sold it in 2011. I should also mention that a Bollywood film was made based on this car model, titled “Ferrari Ki Sawaari.”
The company gifted Sachin this car on its launch. It was a shiny yellow car with a 1.6-liter petrol engine. In the early 2000s, the price of this car was ₹500,000.
