FOX Sports Asia sports editor Timothy Wee fuels your car envy with his selection of EPL footballers and their set of killer wheels. Jealous much yet?
In Batman Forever, the Joel Schumacher popcorn blockbuster, a rubber nippled Batman utters the line, “It’s the car right? Chicks dig the car.”
While it is next to impossible to take anything a rubber nippled man says seriously, the Caped Crusader might have a point.
In today’s world, your car says more about you than your identification papers. The choice of brand, model and even colour can reveal a lot about a person and his preferences.
So is it true that the man make the car? Or does the car make the man?
We leave it up to you to decide with a selection of the top EPL stars and their sweet sweet ride(s).
Staying true to his English roots, Tottenham and England striker Harry Kane made the quintessential choice of a British Jaguar F-Pace – the first ever SUV.
Like its owner, the £40,000 car itself is an award-winning model that claimed this year World Car of the Year and World Car Awards 2017.
And the Jag is also fast off the mark; going from zero to 60 in just 9.7 seconds.
This is not too dissimilar to Kane’s own speedy start this season, leading the EPL goal table with eight goals.
Despite being sidelined for an extended period this season, frontman Sergio Aguero is still Manchester City top scorer with seven goals.
Ironically, the rib injury was the result of a car accident when Aguero was in Amsterdam catching a concert.
The Argentine was lucky to escape major injuries because he was belted up, much like how we are pretty sure he does that in his own customised Lamborghini Aventador coupe.
Billionaire Boys Club indeed.
After securing his dream big money move to Manchester United this season, you can forgive Belgian target man Romelu Lukaku for splashing the cash on a spanking new £250,000 black and white Rolls-Royce.
Oddly enough, the keys to his new wheels were stolen just days after he got it when he left the keys to the Rolls in his parked £100,000 Merc at Manchester airport.
Ah well, the man probably has money to burn now that he is taking home a cool £200,000 per week.
Gabriel Jesus arrived from Palmeira to Manchester City in January and quickly established himself as manager Pep Guardiola’s number one striker with eleven goals from thirteen EPL starts last season.
Picking up where he left off with seven goals so far, the 20-year-old Brazilian forward has also upped his car game, picking up a cool white Mercedes SUV.
But we will probably always remember Jesus’s first set of wheels when he just arrived earlier in the year.

Despite being the new kid on the EPL block, 24-year-old Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has had a lightning start with six goals to his name.
Now that the Spanish striker is out with injury, he can probably take a breather and take some time to settle into his new surroundings.
And what better way to do it in the EPL footballer’s car-of-choice – a black Merc.
It was first leaked way back last year that Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling was on the lookout for his seventh car! The 22-year-old resident gearhead’s decision was so that he could drive a different car every single day of the week.
As it stands, Sterling current car collection fleet includes a £500,000 Bentley GTX 700-4 (the crown jewel of his collection), Rover Evoque, Audi S7 Sportback, Audi Q7, Mercedes-AMG C63, Smart Fortwo and Range Rover Sport.
Well, what do you know? Another five more sets of wheels and Sterling can have his own Twelve Days of Car-istmas carol.
Having moved from Lyon to Arsenal this season, French international striker Alexandre Lacazette has settled into EPL life with five goals.
The £150,000-a-week attacker was sighted shopping at a Hampstead supermarket with his £250,000 red Ferrari 488 when left out of the Gunners’ side that took on Bate Borisov in the Europa League.
