Virender Sehwag or ‘Viru’ as he is known popularly known in the Indian cricket scene needs no introduction. An explosive batsman, who’s single handedly taken many a vaunted bowling attack to the cleaners, Viru has always been known as a high-performer. Even when he occupies the commentary box or the social waves, he rules like the emperor that he is.

Viru’s taste in motoring too are as explosive as his batting. He loves powerful machines, cars that have a dominating presence on the road, letting fellow motorists known that they’ve got royalty among them. Take the Bentley Continental Flying Spur for example. Exuding equal parts luxury & sportiness, the Flying Spur is a luxury sedan that gets heads turning wherever it goes.

Bentley Cars have always been known for their bespoke creations in the motoring world. Luxurious to the core, their signature styling and imposing presence still manage to look graceful when motoring down some of the most scenic highways around the world. Powertrain duties are borrowed from the best of its Audi & VW cousins. The W12 motor develops a staggering 550 bhp of power and the 450+ NM torque comes surging in at a low 1600 rpm, going all the way to 6000 rpp. This gives this luxurious road yacht some serious drivability chops and its legendary mile-muncher status. A six-speed ZF transmission helps lay down all the power on the road.

The Bentley Continental Flying Spur is such an accomplished ride, that there are not too many luxury sedans around the world with the ability to come anywhere close to it. It is a worthy successor of the marque’s 5 legendary wins at the prestigious Le Mans races back in the 1920’s.

In the world of cricketer cars, Virender Sehwag’s Bentley then is a hark back to the glorious days where explosive performance was delivered in a exquisite package. The promise of exclusivity that the Bentley badging offers is perhaps one of the most refined motoring experiences in the world. An experience that only the Gods are fortunate enough to partake in, while us mere mortals cheer them along.
