Former Indian skipper and superstar Mahendra Singh Dhoni is well-known for his passion for automotive and his ultra-cool collection of cars and motorcycles. Hence, it was not a surprise when the Chennai Super Kings skipper added some new vehicles to his garage. The Captain Cool’s choice in cars and motorcycles is something that would be a prized possession for any automotive enthusiast.

Dhoni's newest purchase is a timeless Land Rover which was purchased through the first online auction of classic and vintage cars held by Big Boy Toyz. The model purchased in the auction by Dhoni is a 1971 Land Rover Series III Station Wagon.

As many as 19 cars from brands such as Cadillac, Buick, Chevrolet, Austin, Mercedes and more were part of the auction.  As per reports, the auction for a Volkswagen Beetle started from Rs 1 and went up to Rs 25 lakh. However, the final selling price of Dhoni’s vehicle and other cars hasn’t been announced yet. 

Dhoni's Land Rover has been delivered to him on Tuesday. The model is quite unique and was manufactured in the United Kingdom by Land Rover. The SUV features a 4X4 transfer case and was powered by a 2.3 L petrol engine mated to a four-speed manual gearbox.
