Tau collects R700k beast to enjoy in SA


Brighton and Hove Albion striker Percy Tau on Wednesday collected a stylish set of wheels worth around R700 000 to enjoy while on the roads of South Africa.

Tau touched down on home soil on Wednesday morning following the completion of the 2020/21 Premier League season last weekend, as Manchester City were crowned champions.

The Bafana Bafana international, who will be doing duty in the friendly against Uganda next month, spent the last few months in England after being recalled from his loan spell in Belgium with Anderlecht.

Upon his homecoming, he stopped by the Hyundai headquarters in Bedfordview to pick up a stunning i30n as a brand ambassador of the South Korean vehicle manufacturer.

With Bafana only scheduled to assemble in Johannesburg around June 5, the 27-year-old will get to enjoy the hatchback beast on local roads until then.

Fans are likely to spot Tau around Witbank as he heads home to be with family for a few days before driving back to Gauteng for camp in around 10 days' time.

Did you know?

Hyundai's i30n boasts a 2.0 TGDi 4-cylinder engine that roars with 202kW and 353NM of Torque, and is seen as competition to Volkswagen's Golf GTi. It is alleged to go 0-100km/h in around 6.1 seconds.

Thoughts, please?

What do you make of Percy's new wheels? Would you spend R700 000 to match his swag on the road?
