From Batting to Benz-ing: Cricketer Ajinkya Rahane Hits a Luxury Six with New Mercedes GLS!

In a striking blend of sports and luxury, Indian cricket sensation Ajinkya Rahane has recently made a bold off-field move, acquiring the stunning Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 d 4Matic, a purchase that has set the cricketing and automobile worlds abuzz.

The Mercedes-Benz GLS, tagged at a hefty INR 1.37 crore, is more than just a set of wheels. It’s a statement on the road, especially with its Maybach grille and logo—a nod to the pinnacle of automotive luxury. Underneath its majestic hood lies a powerhouse: a 2989 cc, Inline-6 cylinder diesel engine roaring with 367 horsepower and an impressive torque of 750 nm. The 9G-Tronic 9-speed automatic transmission ensures a seamless blend of power and elegance.

This luxury SUV isn’t just about brute force. The new GLS 4MATIC is a masterclass in design, borrowing elements from the rugged G-Wagon and the opulent Mercedes-Maybach. With over 12,000 units cruising on Indian roads, the GLS holds the crown in the ‘Large Size Luxury SUV’ segment.

Rahane’s new ride promises a serene travel experience. The GLS’ cabin is a quiet sanctuary, courtesy of its laminated glass with acoustic film. The windows are not just about views; they come with infrared absorption films, shielding the interior from heat and harmful UV rays.

Entertainment is paramount in the GLS, equipped with the MBUX Multi-Seat Entertainment system. It ensures that the luxury and infotainment aren’t confined to the front seats alone; rear-seat passengers are equally pampered.

The SUV’s Airmatic package is a technological marvel. It combines adaptive damping with modern air suspension, delivering a ride that’s as comfortable as it is stable, adapting seamlessly to the driving conditions.

And for audiophiles, the GLS is a moving concert hall. The Burmester sound system, bolstered by Dolby Atmos, features 13 individually controlled speakers and 590 watts output, creating a surround sound experience that’s as immersive as it is exclusive.

Ajinkya Madhukar Rahane, known for his prowess on the cricket field as a versatile batsman, has had an illustrious career. The former captain and vice-captain of the Indian Test team has represented India across all formats. Currently leading Mumbai in the Ranji Trophy and playing for Chennai Super Kings in the IPL, Rahane is known for his steady presence in the middle order in Tests and as a formidable top-order batsman in the limited-overs game. Under his captaincy, India has tasted immense success, losing only one match.

With this latest acquisition, Rahane has hit yet another six, albeit off the field, cruising into the fast lane of luxury and style.
