When you are a F1 superstar you feel the need to become an ordinary guy at least behind the wheels of your every day car. Lewis Hamilton has chosen his every-day car to be a Mercedes GL320 CDI powered by a 3.0-liter V6 common-rail diesel engine, developing 224hp at 3800 rpm, and 510Nm from 1600 rpm – 2800 rpm.

When buying the car Lewis said: "At the track I always drive on the limit, but on public roads I like to relax, kick back and cruise. The GL’s perfect for that – it’s got plenty of space for all my kit, a brilliant sound system, and the high driving position gives me a clear view of the road ahead. It’s just about the most comfortable road car I’ve driven. My GL looks great – metallic black paint with matching leather, privacy glass, and it’s got awesome 21” AMG wheels. But with standard air suspension, it still rides beautifully."
