A lavish lifestyle complements Cristiano Ronaldo’s megastar career as a soccer player, allowing him to become one of the greatest soccer players the world has ever seen. To mark the football legend’s 38th birthday, Express.co.uk takes a look at the cars in his collection.
The former Manchester United and Real Madrid superstar’s lavish lifestyle is well known, and his achievements on the pitch help justify this reputation.
It is common knowledge that Cristiano Ronaldo is a car enthusiast who has a car collection that is on par or beyond that of anyone else in the world.
According to Forbes, the Portuguese soccer player has earned more than a billion dollars (or 817 million pounds) throughout his career. He has invested a part of this money in an impressive collection of cars.
It is logical that he has expensive taste to live up to his spectacular career given that he has won the Ballon d’Or and the Champions League five times. His career has been quite successful.
He’s known for driving fancy cars to the training ground, like a Rolls-Royce Phantom and a Lamborghini Urus, but there are certain cars that are only reserved for more special events, like his collection of Bugattis. He has a reputation for showing up to training camp in style.
The striker, who currently plays for Al-Nassr in the Saudi Premier League, is reported to have spent the cash on an immaculate £8.5m special-edition Bugatti in 2021. The striker currently plays in Saudi Arabia.
With only 10 examples produced, the Bugatti Centodieci is an extremely exclusive sports car that was designed as a tribute to the Bugatti EB110.
The Centodieci, which is Italian for “110,” has a top speed that can be electronically limited to 380 kilometers per hour (240 miles per hour), and can accelerate from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour (62 miles per hour) in just 2 .4 seconds.
Ronaldo and his family were planning to go on holiday to Mallorca in June 2022, so he arranged for the delivery of his £8.5m Bugatti Centodieci and a Mercedes-Benz SUV.
In 2017, Ronaldo also took delivery of a sleek 1,500bhp Bugatti Chiron supercar, said to have cost around $2.9m (£2.35m).
In 2021 it was reported that one of his bodyguards had vandalized his £1.7 million Bugatti Veyron, despite the damage being considered very little.
He is said to have taken his enthusiasm for the Italian supercar brand a step further by purchasing a Bugatti La Voiture Noire (which translates to “The Black Vehicle” in French). This vehicle is known to be among the most expensive cars in the world.
Comparisons have been made between the $18.7m (£15.18m) hypercar known as the Noire and the Batmobile.
With its eight-liter quad-turbo 16-cylinder engine and more than 1,500 horsepower available at each wheel, it can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 2.4 seconds.
Ronaldo is not limited to just one brand of supercars, however, as evidenced by the ꜰᴀᴄᴛ that his garage is packed to the brim with a variety of exotic automobiles including, but not limited to, Aston Martins, McLarens, Lamborghinis, and Ferraris.
In 2022, he was awarded a brand-new Aston Martin DBS Superleggera convertible after scoring a spectacular hat-trick against Tottenham in the Premier League game. The cost of the vehicle was £200,000.
The supercar is equipped with a twin-turbocharged 5.2-liter V12 engine that is capable of producing 715 horsepower. Also, he owns an Aston Martin DB9.
On top of that, the 38-year-old owns a McLaren Senna, a one-of-a-kind supercar that costs £1.1 million and is named after Formula 1 icon Ayrton Senna.
The cars were initially offered for sale at a price of £750,000, but the last car produced in the race was auctioned for over £1.9 million. The print run was limited to just 500 units. CR7 is excited to show off his extensive car collection to his 542 million Instagram followers by posting photos to his account.
Rolls-Royce and Bentley have the great honor of frequently appearing on their social media platforms. His appearances can be seen among photographs of his family and a list of his many accomplishments.
His entire collection is estimated to be worth £17 million, and this value does not take into account the £15 million Noire, which he may or may not have.
It is not out of doubt that Cristiano Ronaldo’s collection will grow in no time when he begins his new football adventure in Saudi Arabia. This is not out of the question at all.
