Cricket star Shane Warne got himself a super present for his 45th birthday. What some may call a mid-life crisis, we’d just call mid-life crazy: a Mercedes C63 AMG has just been delivered to him.
He is not called the King of Spin for nothing. Shane Warne left the cricket pitch for apparently… the racetrack. The former Australian international cricketer got himself a Mercedes C63 AMG for AUD$162 000 (US $115 000).
Shane Warne showed his new set of wheels on Instagram posing in front of it crouching down on a bended knee and putting his thumbs up, while displaying a huge grin.
“Happy birthday to me”, the cricket legend wrote as a caption for the picture that shows his latest purchase.
“Treated myself to this awesome beast – the new C63 S limited edition 1!!!”, he told his followers and also thanked Mercedes-Benz for delivering it right on time for the day he turned 45, September, 13th.
The “beast”, as Wane calls it, comes with electrically adjustable and heated seats with memory function, design seat belts and performance steering.
The Mercedes C63 AMG is not the only beast in Wane’s garage, who credits his father for passing on the passion for speed. He also owns a bright white Jaguar F-Type, which is about $200 000 worth, a silver Mercedes ML 63 AMG, a black Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera, a Bugatti Veyron, a couple of BMWs, a Range Rover and Ferrari 360.
No wonder the spin maestro co-hosted an auto TV show in 2009.
