The Craziest Cars in the Premier League #OMG
If you'd like to see a collection of cars that cost several hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars, look no further than the Premier League, where footballers are crazy about luxury vehicles. But for some Premier League football stars, there is the need to stand out. And this mindset only prompted them to go for weird cars like these ones.
1 Sulley Muntari's "tank"
No, the word "tank" isn't a joke. The Mercedes Brabus G63 AMG 6x6 owned by the AC Milan and Ghana midfielder will really pass for a tank, or let's say a bullion van. While seeing that monster on the road might not be surprising, knowing that someone cruises it around as his personal vehicle could be a shocker.
2 Stephen Ireland's pink Range Rover
We've seen Range Rover Jeeps of varying colours, no doubt. But the one cruised around by Stephen Ireland back in his days at Manchester City looked rather bizarre. While virtually everyone would be fine with the jeep's black body, the touch of pink on its rim and other parts will attract all sorts of questions.
3 El Hadji Diouf's gold Cadillac Escalade
Former Liverpool and Senegal striker El Hadji Diouf has always loved to be different. He first proved that by dyeing his hair in gold colour, so you would easily identify him on the field. He further proved that by adding a gold-plated Cadillac Escalade to his garage, which already included white Cadillac Escalade, a Lincoln Navigator, a Mercedes Benz SLR McLaren, and a white Range Rover.
4 Mario Balotelli's Camouflage Bentley Continental GT
Former Manchester City Striker Mario Balotelli is known for getting into scrapes on the field of play. But he sent signals that he's equally as controversial off the pitch when he covered his $255,000 Bentley Continental GT in camouflage vinyl. The new colour makes the 22-year-old star's car stand out even more, which is probably his motive.
5 William Gallas' chrome McLaren Mercedes SLR
Former Chelsea and Arsenal defender William Gallas dropped more-than-countable jaws when he acquired his $535,000 chrome-plated McLaren Mercedes SLR in 2009. We see cars with very shiny bodies every day, but only few people have seen a car whose body can perfectly serve as a mirror. That's what makes Gallas' car stand out!
