He’s played through 10 league championships, adorned countless billboards across the world and is married to Spice Girl Victoria. After 20 years of soccer, David Beckham,38, announces his retirement. Even though he’s done with the game, he still has a myriad of memories, trophies and an amazing car collection.
Range Rover Evoque
Designed by who other than Victoria, the Range Rover Evoque has superb accessibility, extraordinary versatility and is based on a 3 luxurious, individual design themes: Pure, Prestige and Dynamic. Only 200 of the cars were built with matt grey paint, gloss black wheels and tan interior trim personally picked out by the pop star turned fashion designer. Is it really a surprise that one of these cars has made it into their garage?
Porsche 911 Turbo
This 2008 matt-black Porsche 911 Turbo is one of the more well-known cars Beckham seems to seen in. The car is fitted with blacked-out headlights, special alloy wheels, a sports exhaust and has Beckham’s Los Angeles Galaxy jersey number 23 plastered on the head rests. The seats are heated and the sound system is nothing short of spectacular. He paid over $100,000 for this beauty, and he spent another $50,000 for upgrades and interior renovations. This car can go from 0-60 mph in 2.9 seconds. One of the best aspects of this 911 resides in the variable twin turbocharging system. VTG or Variable Turbine Geometry, essentially adjusts vane angles in a pre-loading area ahead of the actual turbochargers to increase or decrease airflow.
Silver Lamborghini Gallardo
This is David’s silver Lamborghini Gallardo complete with ’23’ embossed wheels. The Gallardo is a thoroughbred supercar, packing a 5.2-litre V10 with over 550bhp depending on the version. This Italian supercar has a top speed of 192mph and hits 60mph in just 4.2 seconds. It’s priced $260,000. Beckham actually sold this car last year, when he sold off five of his “flash” cars that were valued at $640,ooo altogether.
Heavily modified, Beckham’s Hummer H2 features include super-low-profile wheels with the ‘VII’ logo as well as ‘VB’ embossed on the seats inside. He invested $103,200 to grab this car and additionally spent $33,800 on extra lavish accessories. He is a great fan of Hummer and he once bought his son Brooklyn a scaled down toy version costing $30,402.37 for Christmas.
The Jaguar XJ is best in performance. It has a marvelous torque, and the speed is commendable doing 0-60mph in just 5.7 seconds. The interior is spectacular. It’s made a perfect use of hi-tech instruments such as a TFT screen. Moreover, this is a perfect choice of Beckham for long journeys. This Jaguar has 19-inch Aleutian 10-spoke alloy wheels, automatic bifunction HID xenon headlights with LED Signature Lights, LED taillights, Panoramic moonroof with power sunblinds, power opening and closing trunk lid and chrome side power vents. Inside there are soft-grain leather seats, a heated steering wheel, Dual-zone automatic climate control and Jaguar Smart Key System with Keyless entry and Keyless start. It’s stunning high-definition full-color 8-inch Touch-screen only adds to its beauty.
Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe
A car swift in acceleration, Beckham loves the luxuriously and comfortable cabin of the Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe. The coupe demonstrated a more relaxed and less formal side of Phantom. It displays a sociable character and its convivial interior evokes the feeling of being aboard an elegant motor yacht. It offers both driver and passengers a dual experience – intimate and cocooning or embracing the elements depending on whether the roof is raised or lowered. Either way, Beckham still seems to look good cruising around in a $550,000 car.
This 2011 Camaro is custom with a matte black finish.
With more time to relax now that Beckham is no longer playing soccer, there is no doubt that his car collection will grow in size. What do you think he’ll purchase next?
