There is a lot we know and love about Marcus Rashford MBE, but something that may have passed you by is the 23-year-old’s status as a massive petrolhead. With a particular obsession with German car manufacturer Mercedes-Benz, Rashford has driven some dazzling motors in his fledgling career to date.
So let’s take a look at some of the stand-out machines the Manchester United and England star has got behind the wheel of...
Audi RS4 - £39,000
When he first broke into the Manchester United team in February 2016, the 18-year-old spent his hard-earned money on a tidy Audi RS4. Worth £39,000 brand new, this number would have cost Rashford around a week’s wages to insure for the year given that he quickly signed a £20,000 a week deal after his senior debut.
Mercedes CLA 45 Coupe - £60,000
The car that began this Mercedes obsession was a black CLA 45 Coupe. But on his way back from training one day in 2017, a motorist smashed into the rear end of his £60k pride and joy, causing almost irreparable damage and leaving Rashford shaken. The car was initially thought to be a write-off but was later repaired and sold.
The ‘Other’ Mercedes - £100,000
He may have only been on the roads for five years but he has already tried out some of the classiest Mercedes. His swish S Class Coupe with a stunning white interior was his first car worth over £100k, but his love for Mercs is seemingly never-ending. He’s also been pictured driving a Mercedes-AMG C 63 Saloon (£70k), the imposing GLA (£30k) and the C Coupe (£38k).
Range Rover Velar - £70,000
The most beautiful car on the planet. Not our words, but the award this car won at the 2018 Car Awards. A classic British stunner, this is a newer and bigger version of the footballer’s favourite, the Evoque, but Rashford even had clever modifications added to improve the look and feel of the car, including a ‘body program’ for more road presence.
Mercedes-AMG G63 - £150,000
Costing £150k, Rashford's Mercedes-AMG G63 4x4 has 577bhp and can do 0-60 in 4.5 seconds. The Manchester United forward has also had this one customised with a camouflage paint job and custom made bonnet, meaning Rashford stands out even in the Carrington car park.
