Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana legend Siphiwe Tshabalala is well-known to have an appreciation for the finer things in life and off the pitch is regarded as one of South Africa’s most stylish men. ‘Shaba’ as his fans call him also has a love of the luxury Japanese car brand Lexus.
Shaba recently took to Instagram to show off his snazzy new Lexus RC350 F-Sport. The sports car has a base list price starting at R897 800 which works out at a monthly instalment (if financed through Lexus) at R14 767 per month.
The list price excludes any optional extras or personalisation which a customer might want to add. It remains unclear if Shaba opted for a standard car or if he added some bling to make it truly his own.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Shaba acts as a brand champion for Lexus Motors South Africa and can often be seen in the brand’s latest models.
SoccerLaduma.com reported that earlier this year Shaba was given a Lexus CT200h in a bid by the brand to drum up sales around its latest model. The CT200h is a luxurious hatchback which features hybrid technology to boost performance, lower emissions and fuel consumption.
Shaba and officials from Kaizer Chiefs were embroiled in an ugly public spat over his association with Lexus last year. The club tried to stop Shaba from being a brand ambassador for Lexus because the club had signed a sponsorship deal with Toyota.
Ironically Lexus is a brand which is wholly owned by Toyota.
Despite or perhaps because of his association with Lexus, Shaba seems so taken by the brand that he has actually spent his own money on some of their vehicles in the past.
He previously had an IS350F.
