Zungu buys 'dream' R1-million car


Bongani Zungu returned to South Africa to enjoy the off-season ahead of an expected club move in Europe and he's now also taken the time to pick up a 'dream' Maserati.

Zungu is set for an exciting few months despite his club side Amiens being relegated from Ligue 1 after a long protracted boardroom battle upon the LFP's decision to cancel the 2019/20 campaign with 10 games remaining.

With French top-flight side RC Strasbourg and SPL giants Rangers amongst the first-known suitors for his services, the Bafana Bafana midfielder took the time to clear his mind as he looks poised to make an important next transfer.

Spoiling himself

The 27-year-old has been greeted with waves of congratulatory messages on social media after being pictured on Instagram picking up a stunning Maserati Ghibli at InspectaCar Gezina, who offer people the chance to 'drive their dream car'.

Known for his impeccable taste in high fashion, the Duduza-born star has now also displayed his taste towards high-end Italian luxury vehicles.

The Ghibli, which is valued at an estimated R1-million on the current market, offers more than head-turning looks but also an incredible performance on the road.

A cut above the rest

With a 3.0 turbo diesel engine, the 202kw vehicle can reach a speed of 1-100km in just 6.3 seconds and an overall top-speed of 250km.

The four-seater sedan is finished with an elegant leather interior that offers an ultimate luxury feel synonymous with the 1915-founded Italian automaker.

Zungu is now entering his sixth season in Europe since leaving Mamelodi Sundowns.
