Football is one sport that I rarely watch for a number of reasons. But I’m trying since there are a number of matches out there that are featured on cable, and you cannot discount the popularity of the sport. Add the fact that there are some Premier League players that often attracts a lot of publicity. For example, I have no intention to blog about Wayne Rooney a month ago but I did write something about him. It’s about his new-found appreciation for a SLR-McLaren car. Anyway back to the stars of the Premier League. My attention is shifted to them yet again due to one article, again with regards to cars that says 4x4s are their preferred mode of transport. So it seems that you can’t expect these players to pay attention to the cost these cars deliver to the environment, well at least for now.
The top footballer’s vehicle that was chosen by 21 players in a survey is the Range Rover Sport 4.4 V8 petrol. This vehicle is the choice of John Terry, Jermain Defoe, Xabi Alonso and Gary Neville. This 4×4 features a top speed of 130 miles per hour.
The BMW X5 4.81 SE is the choice of 16 players which includes Wayne Rooney of Man U. The vehicle can hit 150 miles per hour at its top speed. Another favorite but not a 4×4 is the 6-liter Bentley Continental GT. But this vehicle is a gas-guzzler. Other choices of these players include the Porsche 911 Turbo that is driven by 11 players, an Aston Martin DB9, the BMW 6 Series V8 3 Liter, the Audi A3 3.2 VR6 3.2 Liter, the Mercedes SL65 AMG, a Porsche Cayenne, and the Range Rover Vogue 4.4 Liter.
