Coolest Cars Owned by Chelsea Players
Footballers and cars—they go together like a horse and carriage. No, wait, that's love and marriage, isn't it?
Well, you get the point.
These days, wherever you find a modern footballer, you can be sure a high-end sports car or luxury saloon isn't too far away.
Chelsea currently have a commercial partnership with the Sauber Formula 1 team, so when an F1 car arrived at the club's Cobham training complex for a photoshoot ahead of the 2012 Champions League final (above), a few players were licking their lips at the thought of taking it for a spin.
While nobody was afforded that opportunity, Chelsea's players are no strangers when it comes to driving around the streets of London in eye-catching automobiles.
Bleacher Report brings you some of the coolest cars you will find in the Stamford Bridge car lot.
Ashley Cole: Mercedes SLG 63 AMG

With doors that open upward—given the impression of wings—as opposed to the standard sideways motion of any other car, the Mercedes SLG 63 AMG has an air of "Doc" Emmett Brown's DeLorean from Back to the Future about it.
Can it time-travel, also? We doubt it, but it remains a unique car.
It's perhaps a little left field for some, but as a left-back, it makes sense Ashley Cole is often seen driving his.
Top speed: 186 mph
John Terry: Bentley Continental GT

He may be criticized for an apparent lack of pace on the pitch, but there's no doubting John Terry will be anything but slow when driving his Bentley Continental GT.
This a sports car with an upmarket appeal, although we must admit Terry's "26 JT" license plate does bring things down a level.
Top speed: 192 mph
Frank Lampard: Ferrari 458 Italia

He's a classy operator on the pitch and it seems Frank Lampard is just as much off it, too.
Chelsea's record goalscorer has a fleet of cars that includes the ever-popular Range Rover Sport, but it's the Ferrari 458 Italia that stands out as the jewel in his crown or, in this case, his garage.
Showing his true colors, he has it in blue no less.
Top speed: 202 mph
Fernando Torres: Aston Martin DBS

If the cars footballers drive resembled their performance on the pitch, Fernando Torres wouldn't have suffered from the arduous three years he has spent in West London.
Among others, the Spaniard drives an Aston Martin DBS to work, so while he may not have brought zip and panache with him after joining from Liverpool in 2011, his car adds some glamor to the already impressive fleet at Chelsea's Cobham training ground.
Top Speed: 196 mph
David Luiz: John Deere Gator Buggy 4x4

David Luiz doesn't mess around.
While some players in the Chelsea dressing room are driving fancy sports cars, he has been known to cart his teammates around in a John Deere Gator Buggy.
They come as a four-wheel drive but, not only that, are capable of carrying more than one passenger, as our image shows.
It comes with 675 cc engine, so this isn't exactly for speed demons, but coming in at around £10,000, it's definitely a steal.
