In adherence to Bayern Munich’s stringent vehicle policy, Harry Kane has introduced a new car to his already impressive collection.
After a successful home debut with two goals against Augsburg on Sunday, Kane was presented with a new Audi last week, courtesy of the club’s enduring alliance with the renowned German automaker.
Audi holds shares in the Bavarian powerhouse, and as per the tradition since 2002, they gift each player a new car of their choosing every year.
Following this tradition, players are required to use their Audi vehicles for commuting to the Sabener Strasse training facility, attending matches, and participating in other club-affiliated engagements.
Should they deviate from this norm, they face potential fines – an instance experienced by winger Kingsley Coman.
Kane, along with fellow players, received their vehicles during a Wednesday event in Ingolstadt. In his case, he selected a black Q8 e-tron model with a value of £58,000.
“I decided on a family car,” Kane said, explaining his decision.
“Now that I have four children, I just need the space.”
Players are allowed to drive Bentleys, Bugattis and Porches to club activities because they are part of the Volkswagen group.
Kane’s white Bentley Continental GT Sports Supersports, which costs £212,000 and is his most expensive car, would therefore be acceptable.
He and long-time teammate and friend Dele Alli ended up buying the same vehicle in 2021 even though only 710 were made.
Spurs record goalscorer likes to keep it British and enjoys a £99,000 Range Rover Autobiography, which followed on from his Range Rover Sport.
One of his favourite cars he owns is a Jaguar F-Pace, which typically costs around £35,000.
“I pretty much love that Jag,” Kane said.
“It’s not too big, not too small, it fits our little daughter and the dogs.
“It’s a family car with a sporty edge. It’s not like you’re embarrassed to drive it as a dad. You’re happy to drive it. It looks nice and it’s not too expensive. It’s been great for me so far.”
Kane, who has had some difficulty with the steering wheel being on the opposite side in Germany, has hinted at acquiring Lamborghini and Ferrari as a treat for himself if he wins a couple of trophies.
The England captain is still waiting for a first major bit of silverware but looks well placed to do that with Bayern.
