Pre-Owned luxury cars under 50 lakhs that you can’t say, ‘No’ to!

Cars

Used luxury cars in your budget are doable. Believe it or not, we know today if you go to the market to buy a standard car with good safety features, you will easily spend around 30-40 lakhs- that too when you keep your budget tight. A standard SUV can cost you anywhere around 35 lakhs, and unless your only priority is to commute- you would want your car to provide a few elite features too. And getting all that can cross 40 lakhs easily. This is because standard manufacturers today are trying to incorporate better features to attract consumers towards them. And safety concerns of people have grown tremendously lately; people prefer cars with advanced safety features. 

So our question to you is- why buy a standard car for 40 lakhs when you can buy used luxury cars under 50 lakhs with better features, performance, functionality and everything luxury! 

Most people get influenced by the market stereotypes and myths about pre-owned luxury cars- these keep the audience from seeing the truth. And obviously, no one ever wishes to bet money on uncertain things- the scepticism doesn’t let them benefit from used variants. We have talked about these myths and stereotypes here, have a look if you wish to change your perspective towards it

But for now, let us break this to you- used luxury cars under 50 lakhs is possible, and no, you don’t compromise anywhere, whether it’s about quality or options. The market is flooded with such great options because people are not ready to realise how good these variants are- affordable, quality assured and everything a new out-of-the-lot car is!

Now, before presenting you with the irresistible options that you can consider- let us first break to you why these cars are so good and yet affordable because that’s what makes it look iffy- that it isn’t. 

Pre-owned luxury cars are available in the market at 30-40% of their overall market value. That is the first thing that makes it look scammy- but the thing is these cars depreciate faster than any standard car does- implying that they lose 40-50% of their overall market prices by the time they close their 5th year. But something that does not deteriorate at that rate is their quality- sustenance is the core benefit of luxury cars. A luxury car is meant to give you a luxurious and comfortable driving experience for a minimum of 10 years- that does not change even when it depreciates. 

That is our argument. That is why we advocate for used luxury cars. Because we know how much value they have to offer to anyone who buys it. Now about that list of pre-owned luxury cars under 50 lakhs- we have six options for you that we doubt you can say, ‘no’ to! 

Volvo- 

First in our list of options is this dynamic and highly-agile car. The Volvo XC90 Inscription is a model that will sway you into owning one. This is a perfect crossover SUV for anyone who likes to spend more time on unknown and undiscovered roads. Specifically, the 2016 variant is known for its restructured design and robust powertrain. 

Powertrain- 

This variant features a 1969 cc twin-turbo four-cylinder diesel engine that churns out the max horsepower of 400bhp and max torque of 640 Nm @1750 rpm. Plus, it has an 8-gear automatic transmission system that ensures the car glides smoothly. 

Exterior- 

Volvo changed its entire game when it launched its modernised designs in 2016- the manufacturers managed to give it a stylish yet classy look as they moved past their traditional structure to evolve into a more acceptable one. This used Volvo XC90 Inscription has updated huge grilles designed to keep the insides- the engine and the radiator cool by providing enough ventilation to them- the design is versatile as it serves the purpose and adds to the look as well. Moreover, the slim LED headlights are indeed a plus point as they are a perfect addition to the exteriors. 

Interior- 

Leather upholstery, 9-inch large vertically oriented infotainment system, astutely placed headrests and armrests with electrically adjustable front & rear seats are a few features of this car that sets an aesthetic appeal inside the whole cabin. With a seating capacity of four, this car comes with ample boot space of 300 litres. If comfort is paramount for you too- this one is the perfect match for you. 

This is a performance-inspired car designed to deliver comfort, luxury and smooth rides. If we talk about a few miscellaneous features- the car has a wheelbase of 2984mm that provides it improved traction on uneven terrain. Equipped with all advanced safety features like Passenger and Driver Air-Bags, ABS, Brake-Assist, Central Locking; perfect for people who have a big family or a group of friends. 

Range Rover Evoque Landmark Edition- 

Yes, you read it right- it’s a Range Rover featured in a list of pre-owned luxury cars under 50 lakhs. And it can become yours with no effort, just give us a call, and we’ll handle the rest. But before you make your call- let us introduce you to this beast that’s standing at Kings Auto’s lot.

Range Rovers are known for their unmatched off-the-road capabilities- to glide smoothly on all terrains is what Range Rover’s do the best. And that’s what all the off-roaders want, isn’t it? It is an ergonomically designed variant that offers superior performance and a distinctive drive experience. A dynamic SUV, for a dynamic personality.

Powertrain- 

This variant features a 2.0 litre 4 cylinder turbo diesel engine that churns out max power and max torque of 177 bhp @4000 rpm and 430 nm @1750 rpm, respectively- can go from 0-100kmph in 9.1 as claimed. Furthermore, this used Range Rover Evoque Landmark Edition comes with a 9-gear automatic transmission system that supports a sport mode. The variant is an AWD drivetrain considered best for terrains that have less traction- prevents slippage. 

Exterior- 

If there’s another word for robust, then it must be Range Rover. This car is the very definition of luxury, style and dynamism. A glance at this model will give you sporty feels. To begin with, the car has a revamped grille and a bodacious Carpathian roof that’s standing out here as it complements the moraine blue colour quite well. This is a special edition Range Rover which is why it’s a steal under this budget. In all, we’ll rate the looks of this variant 9/10. We just think the front bumper could have been better. 

Interior- 

A car with great performance but no comfort is good for nothing. Comfort is paramount, at least we think it is. Because a car for the wanderlusts is more like a home on wheels- and is home even home if it’s not cosy? We think not. That’s why talking about interiors is important. The cabin looks extremely elite because of the colour compatibility of black and grey. This used variant is ideal for 5 people, the seats can be lowered to experience sporty spirits, and the entire ambience is very serene. Moving onto the space- this used variant comes with a boot space of 574 litres, ample headroom and legroom too. The insides of this variant are designed intricately, so it is practical and comfortable. 

All in all, this variant is a must in your list of used luxury cars under 50 lakhs. 

Mercedes E220D- 

Mercedes is known for its performance-inspired and luxurious designs. Mercedes has been a preeminent luxury cars manufacturer for years now. This used Mercedes E220D is a sedan built to provide an off-the-beat driving experience. If you’ve got an eye for class and style, you’ll fall for this car in seconds; to be honest, the colour of this variant does help! A royal blue Mercedes for the noble. 

Powertrain- 

This Mercedes E220 D features a 1950cc 4 cylinder inline engine that churns out max power and max torque of 192 bhp @3800 rpm and 400 nm @ 1600 rpm, respectively. This is a rear-wheel-drive variant that comes with a 9-gear automatic transmission system- everything a car needs to provide better fuel economy, performance and traction on terrains- as the name suggests, this variant is indeed the master of all terrains!

Exterior- 

Why is it that every time we see a luxury sedan, we perceive it’s a well-suited person who’s driving it? It’s how the brand has positioned itself in the market- it depicts class, style, sophistication and opulence. The E-class manages to uphold that image of Mercedes in the market. Looking at the car the first thing you’ll notice is how ostentatious the front of the car looks- the gigantic grille, and the high performance LED headlights are the two elements that stand out and complement the extended bonnet of this luxury car. 

Interior- 

The cabin of this car is extremely spacious and comfortable. To begin with, the seats of this variant are well-cushioned, the headrests and armrests are positioned astutely, and there is ample headroom and legroom for both front and rear passengers. And with a boot space of 540 litres, this car is ideal for a family of 5 people. If you end up with this one, you surely are going to take all those long-due trips you never thought you would. 

To conclude, this is an extremely comfortable luxury sedan for those who like to take their buddies with them everywhere. 

Mercedes C220D- 

Another performance-inspired luxury car- it is dynamic, easy-to-drive, functional and progressive. We vouch for a Mercedes because it’s reliable, luxurious and lasts longer. If a perfect blend of class and performance exists, then it must be named after this variant. A perfect luxury ride for a true travel bug. 

Powertrain- 

This used Mercedes C220D features a 2143cc four-cylinder inline engine that churns out max power and max torque of 168 bhp @3000 rpm and 400 nm @ 1400 rpm, respectively. It is a rear-wheel-drive variant that features a 7-gear automatic transmission system with a sports mode. To conclude, this is a highly agile luxury car that’s economical and unrivalled. 

Exterior- 

In one look, the car gives legendary feels- the colour of this variant makes it look astonishingly well put together. The manufacturers did put efforts to upgrade the car’s overall look by changing a few elements like adding the enhanced LED headlights, and taillights to revamp the front bumper. If you are in the market for a luxury sedan, you must consider this one as an option. 

Interior- 

Mercedes interiors have never disappointed us, and nor will they disappoint us this time. The German luxury car manufacturer has given quite a thought to improvise comfort at its best in this variant. It’s not that other variants don’t have what this one does- but getting better with every launch is what Mercedes does the best. The space, comfort, ambience, and lush-this cabin has it all, and yet it looks so minimalistic. 

So if you are preparing a list of used luxury cars under 50 lakhs that you need to assess in and out to reach your final decision, you must put this variant on that list. 

Audi Q7- 

Only Audi can manage to give chic vibes and uphold its classic standards at the same time. This used Audi Q7 is the car of your dreams.

Powertrain- 

This dynamic SUV features a 2.0 litre 4 cylinder engine that churns out max power and max torque of 252 bhp @ 5000 rpm and 273 nm @1600 rpm, respectively. This is an all-wheel-drive variant, that comes with a Tiptronic-8-speed automatic transmission system and an automatic suspensions system- to maintain traction on the road while driving. To sum up, this car has a robust powertrain that pushes the car to its limits. 

Exterior- 

The used Audi Q7 has very decent looks. It looks sporty, luxurious, and is a steal if you are looking for a midsize SUV. This variant is available at Kings Auto’s lot in white colour; everything from the car’s grilles to the headlights and the bonnet is designed to look boisterous and sporty. And in all, the car gives very classic vibes. This could be a perfect ride for someone who appreciates vintage painted in the colours of modern times. 

Interior- 

Audis have always been extremely comfortable. This variant is known for being spacious and elegant- this variant comes with reclining seats that provide ample headroom and legroom, ambient mood lighting, and a huge infotainment system. All in all, the interior is awe-inspiring and will give you serene feels on long drives. 

BMW 730 LD-

Last but not least we have a used BMW 730 LD in our lot waiting for you to pick it up. Jokes apart, this car is a steal at this price because a BMW has never been a bad choice no matter what the situation is. So if you’re a little towards the classic side, then you will definitely like this car. 

Powertrain- 

This used BMW 730 LD comes with an engine that churns out max power and max torque of 258bhp @4000 rpm and 560 nm @1500 rpm, respectively. With an 8-gear automatic transmission system that supports a sports mode, this car will glide smoothly due to its strong traction on the road. 

Exterior- 

The overall look of this luxury sedan is very elegant. You’ll look classy and sophisticated stepping out of this variant. This variant comes with an extended bonnet that complements the LED headlights and the grilles on the front. The entire structure of this car is robust and extremely bodacious. 

Interior- 

The cabin looks astonishingly commodious. There’s ample space for the family of four,

5 Luxury cars that failed to live up to the market’s expectations

Cars

We have all heard about those success stories. But we can’t really overlook the failures, can we? 

It all comes down to innovations and what the market can absorb at a particular time.

Many manufacturers of luxury cars have also failed at bringing the change. And maybe we couldn’t see it as they saw it at that time. 

Maybe, they were just an era early to have launched a few of these variants. 

So let’s dive in and explore the five blunders of the automotive industry of all times. 

The BMW blaster-

The name does justice to this car. It was indeed a “blast”.

No, the car did not blast but it had some very strange features- which might not have been practical in the era it was launched. 

The BMW blaster was outfitted with flamethrowers. 

We asked the same question- why would someone need flamethrowers in a car? 

Unless they also worked as barbeque. We don’t foresee a need to roast cars or people on the road for no reason. 

Interestingly, the car had two LPG flamethrowers on each side of the car below the doors. 

So to put it differently, with the click of a switch- the driver could roast whoever they wanted. Weird right? 

Safety and legality concerns did not let this car stay on the road for long.  

Statistically, only a few hundred of this model were sold in the South African market due to high costs and the criticism that it received. 

As argued by BMW, the renowned manufacturer of luxury cars, the car could not kill but gave the driver enough time to save himself from uncertainty. Which was opposed, and the car was never again spotted.

Toilet on wheels-

This one is equally disturbing for us as this is for you. 

Businesses do attempt at solving people’s problems but, some of them are better unresolved.

Cars normally stink so much that carrying a toilet inside them would drive anyone nuts. 

We don’t know what the makers thought- but we surely can not agree with them!

This was the vision of none other than Cadillac. 

They indeed had a vision.

People stopping every mile at a restroom to get light was obviously not agreeing with them. 

They wanted people to keep travelling and cover long distances in less time. 

But maybe they forgot about the car’s ambience. 

Who would choose to carry shit with themselves while travelling and not you know use a public washroom instead? 

Gross for us too!

Mercedes air-balance-

While some did not give a damn to how it smelled inside the car- Mercedes gave serious thought to it. 

The traditional dispensers were not doing it for Mercedes. So they instead tried to give it a shot themselves. 

Creating something that was specific to their brand and that no other luxury competitor was offering was their aim- clearly, it did not work out as they expected. 

Mercedes launched their scent dispensers in a few of their used luxury cars. Even though the concept was great, it was not something for all. 

Comfort is paramount. And this is why it got rejected- since many people from the Mercedes consumer segment faced issues with scents and fragrances. 

In all, the concept was great but didn’t serve the purpose as it was envisioned initially. 

Points for the idea though!

The Sinclair C5 30- 

Just what we talked about initially. We couldn’t see the purpose as the manufacturers did. 

It is believed that the Sinclair C5 30 was a little too ahead of the time. 

People couldn’t picture themselves in a mini electric car. 

The C5 was a single-seater pedal-assist tricycle designed to promote personal transportation. 

While today people are moving towards it-this phenomenal concept was rejected back in 1985. 

Simply because of the design and since people couldn’t picture themselves as the manufacturers did. 

The design was a little too unenclosed to be on the road indeed. But a modified version might work today.

The curtiss-wright model 2500- 

We all envisioned a world with red lights in space at least once. 

Because the new century always brings better advancements- which we all knew for a reason were “flying cars”. 

And while we all were dreaming about flying a car once in our lives- people out there were working to make that possible.  

The Curtiss-Wright 2500 was the only model that ever came close to being a flying car ever. 

This was a dual-engine model with 300 horsepower- which could easily carry four passengers at a time. 

Without actual wheels, axels or transmission- this car could be driven easily by anyone who could drive a normal car at that time. 

Made specifically for the use of the US military- this variant did not stand up to their expectations. 

Only such blunders can lead us to a successful product after all. But honestly, a few of them need to stay as a blunder. 

We would rather use a public washroom than carry one with us everywhere. 

Luxury cars have always been the light bearer for the industry. Their innovations are followed if they stand out. And a few of the above mentioned are worth experimenting with. 

A flying car is still on the list of many, and a compact electric car will surely see a good demand too- provided positive changes are made to the concept. 

We can only wish for a positive shift. 

But apart from these failures, luxury manufacturers have launched many irresistible cars that we all envy. 

And if you are looking for pre-owned luxury cars- now is the time to take the next step. Check out Kings Auto’s collection on their website and book your love today!

Things no one tells you about used luxury cars

Cars

Thinking of buying pre-owned luxury cars

Don’t step inside a dealership without reading ahead. We’ve got a few hidden or overseen facts you must know before you begin your journey. 

Because knowing these things will make it a lot easier than you think. 

So let’s not waste any time and jump right in. We’ve got a lot to dig. 

  • Low buying costs- low resale value

Many people decide to buy used variants because of the prices.

Since the prices of these variants are way lower than the market

 people are drawn towards these deals. 

Which is great because everyone loves savings. But something that many people forget while making these decisions is the ultimate resale value. 

These used variants are so cheap because their value has depreciated over time. This means when you decide to sell it, the value would have depreciated even more by then. 

And the resale value of this car is going to be less as compared to when you bought it. 

This might not be an issue for people who aim to keep the car or not sell the car for profits. But for people who wish to sell the car further, this could be a drawback. 

So consider this wisely and then only reach a final conclusion. 

Undoubtedly, used luxury cars are a great purchase but in the end, it all comes down to your purpose. 

An undefined purpose can make even the best decisions wrong!

  • Car aged more than 7 years is also ideal!

We have seen people frown upon buying used variants older than 5 or 7 years. 

They have quality concerns and many people also think the car wouldn’t last for long. 

Which is only partially true. 

The thing about cars is they have a set life span. 

The average lifespan of cars is 12 years. 

Which means a car can last for that long. 

So buying it second-hand doesn’t reduce the car’s life. 

The factors that do impact a car’s life are- (a) the maintenance, (b) the servicing and modifications, (c ) driving style and many more. 

So the point here is do not look for a younger car. Look for a model that has been maintained well. 

Because this is what makes the real difference. 

For instance, if you are confused between two models- say car (a) is 5 years old poorly maintained and car (b) is 7 years old well-maintained with no accidental history whatsoever- then you must get the car (b) for obvious reasons. 

  • Buying is better than renting-even for temporary purposes!

Leasing is the new trend and people are really loving this trend. 

However, they do not realise how this trend is burning a hole in their pocket. 

Buying is a 10X better option than leasing any day. 

Well, the answer for your “why” is- leasing costs way more than buying does and it comes with more cons than buying. 

Leasing a car means you are liable for anything that happens to the car, you are liable for every single extra mile you cover with that car, and most importantly at the end of the leasing period you are left with nothing but the memories of that car. 

Why would anyone want to spend all that money on something just to return it to the showroom? 

Even if you are looking to keep the car for just 2-3 years you can purchase an old variant that has been maintained well, use it for however long you want and choose to do whatever you want with it ultimately. 

No pressure. 

  • Not every dealership is worth investing in! 

People have started trusting dealerships blindly. 

And we say please don’t do this. 

Just because a showroom has 15 luxury cars standing at their lot doesn’t mean that they are worth it. 

They have to have a lot more than cars. 

They have to be authentic, reliable and a must is customer orientation. 

Without these three a dealership is just as good as any private dealer. 

So choose wisely. Ask questions. Decide with a clear vision. 

  • You can buy pre-owned luxury cars with bad credit as well.

It is difficult, yes. But it is not impossible. 

There are a few things that you need to do but if done right you will get there eventually. 

And if you want more on this you can check out another blog of ours linked right here. 

  • You can find most CPO cars at credible dealership lots. 

This is something not many people know. 

But here’s a question for you- where do all the CPO rejected luxury variants go? 

And if your answer is a dealership. Well, you are right. 

A brand is a brand, and they won’t do anything to jeopardise their image in the market. 

But they know the value of their products. 

This is why they recommend these cars for dealerships. 

Easy, peasy. 

So keep your eyes open. These variants sell as soon as they enter a dealership lot. 

Because a CPO car at the price of a dealership- hello? Who wouldn’t want one!

  • Interest rates are negotiable. 

You don’t actually have to accept whatever is thrown at you. 

This is what many people out there believe. 

Negotiation works everywhere.

And you are buying a car worth lakhs. 

So yes, your say matters. 

And yes, you can negotiate. 

But here’s the thing.

Do not go without an idea of what the market is offering at the moment. 

Do your research- check your credit score- ask for quotations. 

And then go to a dealership. 

See if they provide you with that. And if not, bring your research to the table. 

Discuss and negotiate as much as you can. 

Pro tip- keep a good in-hand amount to pay as a down payment. 

If nothing, this will absolutely work for you. 

So that’s all-go and get your car now. Ohh! We are sorry. Looking for a car dealership?

Check out Kings Auto’s website- assurance is you will find what you are looking for there.

Breaking the stereotypes- why buying used luxury cars is ideal?

Cars

Everything has its own stereotype. A stereotype for a joker is a red nose, for a dancer are heeled boots and for a rich person, it’s luxury. 

These are stereotypical images stuck in the minds of the population at large, but do they have to be true all the time? 

A joker can make you laugh without a nose, a dancer can nail a performance wearing flats and a rich person can choose to live a minimalist lifestyle. So the answer is no, but the image does not change- does it? 

The same goes with used luxury cars- a lot of people have a lot of opinions and while we can not defy them absolutely, a few things are very subjective. 

We are here today to talk about them because we don’t want you to miss on such great deals believing what might just not be the case for all. 

So let’s dive in and break the stereotypical ideologies concerned with used luxury cars

The status symbol- 

It is widely believed by people that buying used variants of anything is demeaning. 

And same goes for cars as well. But the thing is people still don’t frown upon buying used standard cars. Because it is seen as something a person would do to fulfil his/her daily needs on a budget. 

This is not the case with used luxury cars. Clearly, no one buys used luxury cars just to meet their requirements-its the zeal to own and ride the luxury that encourages them. 

Moreover, it is believed that people who buy pre-owned variants are just trying to “have it all” even when they don’t have a pocket for it. 

This idea clearly isn’t something that should be encouraged. 

These pre-owned variants provide great value for money because of their irresistible quality. And buying from a credible place will never look demeaning, contrary to how things might look when you buy from a private dealer. 

Since private deals are iffy and nothing about the car can be assured, it could impact your status because of the bad car’s condition. And might look a little wanna be! 

But mark our words, used variants bought from CPOs or credible dealerships are as good as brand new deals. 

So it’s not about whether you buy a used luxury car, it’s about where you get it from! 

Luxury cars are for the “popular”-

Many people who have the pocket to buy used variants of these luxury cars refrain from doing so, because- (a) they think they can’t afford luxury cars since they aren’t really aware of the concept itself, (b) they have this weird belief that only the “known” can own them. 

In both scenarios, the person is missing out on a lot. 

The truth is just because a famous personality drives a Mercedes doesn’t mean it’s certainly out of your budget. 

These days many luxury car manufacturers sell the used variants of their cars too and they are priced way less than the market prices of new ones. 

Moreover, dealerships also offer some awesome deals and you can easily find one that suits your requirements and your budget. So no, it’s not the 70’s. And yes, you can have good things too!

Someone who has a pocket for a brand new luxury would never go for a used variant-

This is one of the biggest stereotypes about used luxury cars.

Just because someone has the money to buy a new variant doesn’t mean they will go for a new variant. 

Some people choose to go reasonable and make better financial decisions than others. 

Because when you have a good bank balance it is about what you choose. And both the options here are equally worth it. 

Moreover, there are enough examples of celebrities and wealthy businessmen who own used variants of luxury cars. 

Specifically, B Praak and Jaani are two Indian popular personalities who own used luxury cars from our lot. 

The image of “used”- 

Whatever you say or do, the term “used” creates the image of junk in your head. 

You picture nothing but a car with dents and scratches, rusted to wheels. 

But hold on, because the term does not define it. 

What if we call it “pre-owned”? Is it enough fancy for you to create a different image in your head? 

So the point is, don’t assume things before experiencing how it actually works. 

This image that you created might be right for a car purchased privately, but isn’t really the deal with every car.

Cars that are standing in dealership lots will take your breath away in one look. So don’t go with the stereotypically set image and try to have a different perspective. 

Also, researching will do wonders! 

What do you think now? 

Do you still believe in luxury cars being made for the creamy layer or do you see yourself owning one soon enough? 

If you do, then don’t forget to browse King’s Auto’s lot. They have a wide collection of pre-owned luxury cars that’ll lure you into owning them.

We bet you didn’t know these facts about luxury cars!

Cars

Envied by many, owned by few- luxury cars can easily draw your attention at any point of the day. 

Because luxury keeps evolving, there’s always something new that can leave you awestruck. 

And all those who are intrigued by the many things luxury cars offer- these unique facts about luxury cars will leave you amazed. 

But before we begin, ask yourself- which luxury car do you envy the most?

Because we’ve covered a few and you might as well found your love in this list. 

So if you have your answer, let’s dive in!

A car that is a refrigerator!

The BMW Isetta was a car made by BMW to escape bankruptcy back in the 1950s. 

Known as the “bubble car”- it was a three-wheeled car with the door of a refrigerator. 

Back in 1954 at the Turin Car Show, the BMW got inspired by the car’s design and so they acquired licensing rights from the Italian manufacturer Iso Rivolta to manufacture the “bubble car” as the BMW Isetta. 

This microcar was a hit in those days. 

Interestingly, the car had an open roof used as an emergency exit since the car door was at the front. 

Another surprising fact is this car had a carriage on the outside to carry luggage- it was more like a rack though!

The Isetta is one of the vintage luxury cars today!

The Lamborghini logo symbolises “determination”-

This isn’t something new. Many companies globally have logos that symbolise everything from relationships to the company’s origin. 

But this one here is a little different. 

The “golden bull” is the logo of one of the most loved luxury car brands, Lamborghini. 

But have you ever wondered why a bull?

Why not something geometric like a Mercedes?

The founder of the company, Ferruccio Lamborghini, started manufacturing trucks in Italy after world war 2. 

The industrialist had a zeal to manufacture used luxury cars and reform the market segment for good. 

His inspiration interestingly came from a Ferrari model that didn’t quite satisfy him-so he manufactured his own satisfaction instead! 

The Lamborghini logo represents the sun sign of Ferruccio i.eTaurus. The bull that represents the Taurus sign is known to be a symbol of determination, stability and strength. 

From Rapp Motorenwerke to BMW- 

BMW as a brand has evolved into one of the preeminent luxury cars manufacturers globally today. 

But manufacturing cars was not what they did in the initial years of the company. 

With changing times, and demands the company evolved and took the hold of a very significant market share globally. 

But what we see today isn’t the reality: the backstory is what will leave you flabbergasted. 

Back in 1913, they were known as Rapp Motorenwerke. The company used to manufacture aircraft engines which they also supplied to Germans during the first world war. 

Today what we know as BMW originated from the Rapp Motorenwerke further taken over by Bayerische Flugzeugwerke AG in 1922. 

Interestingly, the logos of both Rapp and BMW resemble each other a lot. 

The first-ever Rover was inspired by an American-military tank- 

No brand starts as a brand. 

There is a whole backstory not everyone knows. 

Similarly, the Rover brand was a manufacturing cycles in its initial years.

The transition from two-wheels to four-wheels must have been difficult.

But here’s what caught our eyes. 

The very first Rover was inspired by the US military jeep i.e Willys-Overland. Yeah, you heard it right. 

In the process of preparing a model for farming purposes the brothers’ Spencer and Maurice Wilks, innovated a design fit for military use. 

The seats of Beckham’s Rolls Royce Phantom says- 23!

If you love football and luxury cars too- this will blow your mind!

The famous former footballer and the love of all, David Beckham owns a customised Rolls Royce Phantom.

The cool thing about this car is that David engraved the number 23 on every seat of this car, that is the number on his jersey. Isn’t it amazing? 

It won’t be wrong to say the footballer likes to show off his achievements every now and then. 

One of a kind Lamborghini Huracan that changes colours- 

Our favourite one is finally here. 

All cars come in different colours, and probably the hardest decision to make is the colour itself.

But when it comes to a Lamborghini, oh this car can nail any colour. 

None can ever be a disappointment. 

But do you know there’s a single variant of this car that has been modified to look different from different angles?

Covered with a symmetrical chrome wrap this variant is owned by none other than Chris Brown. 

Because of the modifications, this car reflects hues of different colours like blue, pink, yellow and purple. Which goes seamlessly with the purple headlights!

Isn’t it cool? We love how the car turned out-do you? 

A normal luxury car didn’t do it for prince Abdulaziz- 

We know how much the sheikhs of Saudi like to showcase their royalty. 

And with every other person owning a luxury car these days; maybe the prince wanted to become the centre of attention. 

Late Prince Al Talal bin Abdulaziz gifted himself a diamond-studded Mercedes Benz on his 38th birthday. Because just any luxury car wouldn’t do it for him!

The Willy’s inspired the Mahindra jeep design- 

Back in the time when world-war 2 had ended the Co-founder of Mahindra & Mahindra went to the USA to meet the person who had invented the Jeep at that time. 

The Co-founder got fascinated with the intricately designed Jeeps, and he knew this was something he had to bring to India. 

He was convinced that this car could help the people reach beyond the developed parts of the country. So he won the bidding and started assembling the Jeep in India. 

This is how the much loved Mahindra & Mahindra Jeep was made. 

The everlasting bond of Daniel Craig & Aston Martin- 

Mr Bond can never disappoint us with his charms and even the makers of Aston Martin were smitten by the legend. 

This is why they offered him the invincible experience of riding an Aston Martin for his life. 

Mr Craig can drive whichever car he wants in Aston Martin’s showroom and even test drives it on a race track. Interestingly, this offer can never be revoked. 

However, the actor does not own an Aston Martin presently. 

Isn’t it interesting to know the backstories of these cars? Some of these are inspiring, and some are fun-but all are phenomenal!

Which fact did you like the most? Because we can’t seem to make up our minds and choose the one we love the most since all of these are so great!
