With the 7th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, the Chicago Bears selected wide receiver Kevin White from West Virginia University. The speedy wide out will join all-pro receiver Alshon Jeffery as the primary pass catchers for Jay Cutler. As the 7th pick, White quickly goes from college student to millionaire, meaning it’s probably time for him to upgrade his ride. Since White will be spending a lot of his time in Chicago in the coming months, we can’t think of a better place for him to find a new ride than at Loeber Motors. But right now, we want White to focus on being great on the field, so to help him find a set of wheels fit for a Bears wide receiver, let’s discuss what kind of car Kevin White should buy.
Mercedes-AMG C63 – The Practical Choice
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class, specifically the Mercedes-AMG C63, might be the perfect vehicle for an NFL rookie. The C-Class is equipped with some pretty incredible features and was recently named among the 10 best interiors of the new model year by Ward’s Auto, but with an MSRP starting below $65,000, it’s still practical by NFL contract standards. With a 429-horsepower biturbo V-8 engine, the C63 sprints from 0-60 a little quicker (4.0 seconds) than White runs the 40-yard dash (4.35 seconds).
Porsche Cayman S – The Sporty Choice
The Porsche Cayman has an MSRP comparable to the Mercedes-AMG C63, but it’s a little sportier, which may appeal more to the 22-year-old receiver. With two seats, White should fit comfortably in the driver’s seat, even with his 6-foot-3 frame. While its 0-60 sprint may not be quite as quick as the C63’s, clocking in at 4.6 seconds, the handling and agility of of the Porsche Cayman can’t be overstated. Powered by a mid-mounted boxer engine, the Cayman S has ideal balance and provides incredible bursts of acceleration. We know Kevin White can relate.
Mercedes-AMG GT S – The Game-Winning Choice
Kevin White is fast. Very, very fast. If he wants a vehicle that portrays that speed, the 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT S is the ideal choice. As an all-new model expected to arrive later this spring, White can custom order the new sports car at Loeber Motors, maybe in AMG Solarbeam Yellow Metallic (pictured above) as a call back to his West Virginia days. Of course, the AMG-GT S is a larger investment, but it will make his arrival statement loud and clear.
