Known equally for his talent and eccentrism on the court, tennis star Nick Kyrgios also seems to be a BMW fan. In 2015, Kyrgios says that he purchased his car, a BMW F80 M3, but now that car is up for sale.
“Alright – I don’t usually post stuff like this on social media… but special exception this time… this was my first car I ever bought, owned from new. The time has come to let it go,” Kyrgios said in a Facebook post.
The Australian tennis star says the car is in immaculate condition, has low miles (kilometers in this case) and has been well taken care of.
“As mentioned earlier – owned from new, 1 owner. Meticulously cared for, regularly serviced, paint protect, only 16,000 km, near new tyres, immaculate car, bone leather interior. Anyone that is seriously interested, email email@example.com to arrange an inspection.”
Predictably, the post received a few sarcastic replies, from fans wondering why the 16th-ranked player in the world would think selling his car via Facebook was a good idea.
“Someone needs money for the clay season’s travel,” Benjamin Martinez replied.
Kyrgios shot back, “Probably not, mate,” noting he made $280,000 for reaching the semifinals at the Miami Open, where he lost, 7-6, 6-7, 7-6, to Roger Federer.
Along with its brother – the F82 M4 – the M3 Sedan is powered by the S55 3.0 liter BMW TwinPower Turbo engine delivering 425 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque, allowing the sporty sedan to accelerate from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in just 4.1 seconds. Both the M3 and M4 have been a huge success for the M Division who in 2016 has seen record sales.
So now, Kyrgios not only gives you the chance to own a fantastic sports car, but also one that comes attached with a bit of a VIP status.
