5 celebrities with used cars in their garages
There couldn’t be a better time to buy a used car. The options are numerous and the demand is exploding. You are now seeing more organized players in the used car space who will give you the best possible deals. Now you have more opportunities to get a good deal on a used machine. Used cars are no longer seen as a sign of ‘unaffordability’. It’s more about being frugal and getting more value for the penny you pay. In fact, celebrities with more money than you and me have been doing it for ages, and with great success in the luxury and performance car market too. Buying used luxury car examples not only saves a lot of the sticker price, but also allows you to keep the prestige intact. Here are five examples of celebrities buying used luxury cars you need to know about.

1. Virat Kohli
Virat Kohli remains one of the most successful players in the history of Indian cricket and the cricketer is sure to bring in a lot of money every year. But that didn’t stop him from driving home a used Bentley Continental GT. The former Indian skipper has been spotted in the white Bentley in Delhi several times.
Indian rapper Badshah knows how to make anthems and certainly isn’t short on cash with several Exotics already in his garage. But when it came to his first Rolls-Royce, the rapper went the second-hand route and brought home the Wraith in a pristine white hue. The Rolls-Royce Wraith costs around Rs. 6.5 crores for a new version, so you can expect Badshah to have managed to save a few crores on the spot.
