Harry Kane’s new life at Bayern Munich has taken another turn in the road – as it turns out he’ll be steering a glitzy new car gifted by his new employers.
Bayern’s stars were able to choose from a range of electric Audis thanks to the club’s partnership with the car manufacturer, who have shares in the club.
Kane opted for a black Q8 e-tron, with prices on that range starting at £58,000. The ex-Spurs star collected his new drive from Ingolstadt on Wednesday.
Leroy Sane, Joshua Kimmich and Thomas Muller were among 12 Bayern players to select the Audi RS e-tron GT, for which costs start at nearly £120,000.
Leon Goretzka also chose an RS e-tron GT, but his came in purple as opposed to black.
‘I’ve already tried [driving in Germany], but of course not with the new car,’ Kane told BILD.

Harry Kane: black Q8 e-tron (prices vary but start at £58,000)
Leroy Sane, Joshua Kimmich, Thomas Muller, Leon Goretzka, and eight others: Audi RS e-tron GT (worth around £120,000)
‘I’ll slowly get used to the fact that the steering wheel is on the other side. So far I haven’t had a crash, that’s a positive thing.’
Squad members will be required to drive their company cars to training, matches, and events in the car, as per Bayern policy.
However, Porsches, Bugattis, and Bentleys are also deemed acceptable as they are part of the Volkswagen group.
In April 2020, Kingsley Coman was reportedly fined £43,500 for driving his McLaren to training instead of an Audi – but blamed the misdemeanour on a broken wing mirror on his assigned vehicle.
Bayern apologised to Audi as players are expected to drive to their Sebener Strasse training base in their company cars.
After his wife, Kate, gave birth to their fourth child, Henry, earlier this month, Kane explained his priorities when choosing what type of Audi to select.
He said: ‘I decided on a family car. Now that I have four children, I just need the space.’

Audi have sponsored Bayern since 2002 and fund the German giants to the tune of £43million per year.
On his Bundesliga debut, he scored and assisted in a 4-0 rout at Werder Bremen to put Bayern second in the table after one game.
At the event with Audi, he was pictured socialising with Leroy Sane, Leon Goretzka, and Joshua Kimmich.
England’s all-time top goalscorer left Spurs this summer in a £100m move with the hope of winning titles. Bayern have won the Bundesliga on seven consecutive occasions and have a strong Champions League pedigree.
He was absent from his new club’s annual photoshoot in lederhosen due to the birth of Henry in England – a valid and well-timed excuse to avoid photographical obligations.
Kane was greeted with adoration by fans and took time out of his day to sign memorabilia
His son, Henry, was born on Sunday in England. He is the fourth child Kane and his wife Kate’s fourth child
