See the ultra rare Bugatti and the rest of Cristiano Ronaldo’s £17 million car collection
The extravagant lifestyle of the ex-Manchester United and Real Madrid star was matched by his stellar on-field performances. The world knows Cristiano Ronaldo as a car enthusiast with a collection of vehicles that rivals or exceeds that of anyone else.
Forbes estimates that the Portuguese footballer has earned over $1 billion (£817 million) during his career, and that he has spent a small portion of that sum on a breathtaking collection of automobiles.
It’s only fitting that he has expensive taste to match his illustrious career, having won the Ballon d’Or and the Champions League a combined five times.
Even though he often brings expensive vehicles like a Rolls-Royce Phantom and Lamborghini Urus to the training ground, he saves his collection of Bugattis for more momentous occasions.
He is rumoured to have dropped £8.5 million on a special edition Bugatti in 2021, despite playing forward for Al-Nassr in the Saudi Pro League.
Only ten examples of the Bugatti Centodieci, a tribute to the Bugatti EB110, were ever produced.
The Centodieci, which literally translates to “110,” can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 2.4 seconds and has an electronically capped top speed of 380 km/h (240 mph).
Ronaldo and his family took a 10-day vacation in Majorca, Spain in June 2022, during which time he had his £8.5 million Bugatti Centodieci and a Mercedes-Benz SUV shipped there.
In 2017, Ronaldo also picked up a sleek $2.9 million (£2.35 million) Bugatti Chiron supercar with 1,500 PS.
A bodyguard of his was rumoured to have crashed his £1.7 million Bugatti Veyron in 2021, though it was reported that the damage was minimal at best.
The rumour mill has it that he went all out for his passion for the Italian supercar manufacturer and bought a Bugatti La Voiture Noire (literally “The Black Automobile”), one of the world’s priciest vehicles.
The Noire, a hypercar that costs $18.7m (£15.18m), has been compared to the Batmobile.
Its eight-liter quad-turbo 16-cylinder engine produces more than 1,500 horsepower at each wheel and allows it to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in just 2.4 seconds.
