Virat Kohli, the captain of the Indian cricket team, is also an Audi India brand ambassador. Virat’s garage houses a variety of Audi vehicles, as well as SUVs and other vehicles. He used to sell old cars whenever he bought new ones. Virat Kohli used to own this Audi R8, which is currently rotting in a distant portion of Maharashtra.
Virat possessed a previous generation Audi R8 in 2012, which he sold to a man named Sagar Thakkar in 2016. Later, Sagar Thakkar was discovered to be a criminal, and Sagar received the car for his girlfriend. For his swindle, Mumbai police arrested him and seized all of his assets, including his houses and automobiles.
Audi R8 damaged in the floods
During the seizure of the car by Mumbai Police, the car was left in an open Mumbai Police impound yard. According to reports, the Audi R8 was destroyed completely during the Mumbai floods and was even located floating in the water.
According to the authorities, Sagar paid Virat Kohli a value exceeding 2.5 crores to buy this car from him. Virat Kohli enjoyed this car because it was his first sports car, and he was even seen driving it on multiple occasions. He used to bring the car to the matches in Delhi, and a clip of Chris Gayle getting a ride in the R8 from Kohli made headlines.
