Formed in 2010 and with an official debut staged in 2013, the seven-member band of songwriters and singers little knew that they will be the face of the Korean music industry one day, which is popularly known K-Pop. We are talking about BTS, also known as Bangtan Boys. In today’s times, all the seven members of the band have made millions of fans around the world, and have taken K-Pop to new heights with international recognition.
While the BTS members are not hardcore car enthusiasts as American rappers, they do own some swanky cars. Here’s a list of all the cars currently existing in the car collection of BTS
Popularly known as ‘V’ among his fans, Kim Tae-Hyung is the leading vocalist of BTS and is a renowned songwriter and actor in the Korean film industry. Currently, he is an owner of a Genesis GV80 SUV, which was acquired by him recently. Kim got himself a black-coloured three-row version of the midsize luxury SUV.
The Genesis GV80 is sold with three different engine options – a 2.5-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol (304 PS of power and 422 Nm of torque) and 3.0-litre four-cylinder diesel (278 PS of power and 588 Nm of torque), both of which are available with an 8-speed automatic gearbox.
