Dato’ Lee Chong Wei is famous for his fast and furious smashes on the badminton court, but off the court, same can be said about his rides too.
A couple of pictures that have been circulating around the Internet suggest that the world number one singles player recently bought himself a spanking new car: a white Ferrari F430!
Debuted at the 2004 Paris Motor Show, the F430 is a lean, mean driving machine; the F430 is powered by a 4.3L V8 engine that oozes more than 480 in horsepower, so yeah, it’s pretty nasty.
The F430 does 0-100km in 4 seconds and it has a top speed of 315km/h. And the price tag? A cool RM1.6 million up!
But before you say that he bought a Ferrari because it’s a Ferrari, the 29-year-old Chong Wei knows a lot about cars. A self-confessed super car lover, he’s already own a sleek grey Nissan GT-R (which he rumoured to have sold off to get the Ferrari), a BMW X6 Coupe and of course, a black Proton Inspira 2.0 – a gift from the car manufacturer to honour his accomplishments.
We still prefer the Ferrari though.
