The Russian striker, who currently plays for Zenit football club, shares the passion of all motorists. As he himself admitted, part of his heart belongs to the game on the field, and the other half belongs to beautiful and fast cars.
The life of any athlete is stressful. And high-speed cars help to cope with a difficult pace. Artem shared: in order to have time to do everything in his life, he chooses models with an automatic transmission. This way he maintains his mobility while enjoying the ride.
What does the celebrity ride? There is only one vehicle in his fleet. However, during his life, the athlete managed to change several cars. Among them:
Dziuba started his career as a motorist on the budget Daewoo Nexia brand. The car is developed on the basis of models Opel... The South Korean automaker has slightly modernized its brainchild and made it fit for the European market.
The four-door sedan is equipped with an in-line four-cylinder engine. The classic version is with a volume of 1,5 liters and a maximum power of 75, 85 or 90 horsepower. The five-speed mechanics did not suit the future star very much.
Therefore, Artem moved to Hyundai Santa Fe. There is a great variety in the line of this brand. So the footballer had plenty to choose from. The South Korean automaker equipped its cars with power units with a volume of 2,0 to 3,5 liters. Most SUVs are all-wheel drive.
As his fame grew, Artyom improved the class of his vehicles. So, the next car of the athlete was the Japanese model Lexus IS-250. An economical reliable car with an internal combustion engine of 2,5 liters. The motor has a V-shape for 6 cylinders.
Rear-wheel drive car. The manufacturer offers the buyer to choose between a mechanical and automatic transmission. Artem, of course, settled on the second option. A six-speed automatic machine accelerates the car to 100 km / h. in 7,9 seconds. And the maximum speed is 220 kilometers per hour.
The last car that Dzyuba is currently driving is the Mercedes SLC. The iron horse, purchased in 2013, also has an automatic gearbox. This time it is already 7-speed.
There are four powertrain options in the model line. The most modest - 2,1-liter, developing 204 horsepower. The most voracious model is 4,7 liters. It is twice as powerful and has 408 hp.
Despite the busy rhythm of life, Artem spends at least four hours a day driving. It is immediately evident that a person truly loves cars. Although, as the football player himself admitted in an interview, even the last car does not suit him very much. The athlete's dream remains Lamborghini... And it makes no difference: it will be a convertible, or a sports car with a hardtop. The main thing is fast and with automatic transmission.
