Sachin Tendulkar may have sold his Ferrari 360 but he is not without a super car. According to sources and news reports, Sachin has already replaced his prancing horse with a Nissan GTR 530, a 530 horse-powered, four-wheel drive.

While auto-enthusiasts are claiming that Sachin may have opted to not drive his Ferrari because of it's low-ground clearance which made the car unfit to drive on Mumbai roads, others are not too enthusiastic about his latest buy which they say, cannot be compared to the sheer snob value attached with a Ferrari.
The master-blaster though, according to reports, already took the delivery of his Nissan a fortnight ago. The Times of India quoted Arabian Automobiles in Dubai, from where the car was bought, as saying that two engineers had flown in with the car to tune it to Sachin's preference.
The daily also had a close friend confirm the buy. "Sachin is delighted with the arrival of his new car."
The cost of the new addition to Tendulkar's collection of 2 BMWs and a Skoda: $87,000 (Rs 40 lakh approx).
