Jamie Vardy Mercedes
ONE lucky Leicester City fan can buy a piece of football motoring history as a Mercedes previously owned by Jamie Vardy, the Premier League champions' top striker, goes for sale.
The current owner of the car, who's selling it privately on Auto Trader, said he'd been on the lookout for a Mercedes C63 AMG when he was offered two different models which had both been owned by professional footballers.
One was in Metallic White and owned by now retired Zatyiah "Zat" Knight, of Bolton Wanderers, with the other car in Polar White previously owned by Jamie Vardy, who at the time was playing for a Leicester City side fighting relegation in the Premier League.
The car had a number of football grounds programmed in the car's sat nav - along with a dance album which was left in the CD player.
The current owner, Danny Sangster, a private seller based in Essex, said: "What Leicester City have achieved this season has been nothing short of incredible, and it's been brilliant driving around in a car that I know was previously owned by arguably the country's best footballer this season."
The Mercedes-Benz C63AMG is packed with power with a 6.3-litre V8 engine under the bonnet that kicks out 457bhp - that's about three times more than the average family hatchback. With all that power the 0-62mph sprint is dispatched in just 4.4 seconds and top speed is limited to a mere 155mph.
Jon Quirk, of Auto Trader, said: "The C63 AMG comes in saloon, coupe and estate versions but all of them come with that exhilarating acceleration that can thrust you into the back of your seat.
"It's similar to the kind of dominating, powerful performance that Jamie Vardy has had on so many of the Premier League teams defences this season!".
The 2013 Mercedes C63 AMG is for sale for £38,500, and has just 14,000 miles on the clock with the private seller claiming it has only been used on weekends.
