Friends of Benz: Kolisi couple score brand new ‘his and hers’ Mercs

Last year, World Cup-winning Springbok captain Siya Kolisi joined the global rank of elite athletes, susch as Lewis Hamilton, as a ‘Friend of the Brand’. The bond between the ball carrier and the Benz seems to be a major score for the Kolisi Couple.

Springbok, Stormers and Western Province skipper Siya Kolisi and his wife, Rachel, showed off their new “his and her” Mercedes-Benz models.

At the end of August last year, Siya joined a range of elite athletes around the world who are “friends of the brand” for Mercedes-Benz, including tennis legend Roger Federer, F1 world champion Lewis Hamilton, and golfer Rickie Fowler.

The partnership with Mercedes-Benz will see Kolisi collaborating with the luxury carmaker on a range of projects in the coming 12 months. And in the meantime, the Kolisis are now both boasting a brand new Mercedes of their own: Siya with a Mercedes-Benz G-Class and Rachel with a Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupé.

The pair took to social media to show off their new vehicles, with Rachel saying they are both “friends of the brand”.

One fan was very excited for the couple saying: “This is the best Mercedes ad ever! Soooo Flash please tell me u get them !!! you deserve a hot car with all the kids u raising…[sic]”

SA’s most stylish couple

It looks like the couple is going all out on the style front.

In 2020, Siya and Rachel were also voted as South Africa’s most stylish couple at the SA Style Awards which was held in Sandton last November. If their “friendship” with Mercedes are anything to go by, they might be scooping the title again this year.

During the course of the evening, Rachel kept fans updated — even sharing a video of her walking the red carpet.
