What do you do when you're one of the world's richest footballers? Buy the world's most expensive car, obviously. According to Marca, Cristiano Ronaldo has supposedly gone and bagged himself the Bugatti La Voiture Noire the only one in the world, and reportedly the most expensive car ever built. Bugatti confirmed they have found a buyer for the €11million (£9.49million) car, which was first presented at the Geneva Motor Show in 2019. It truly is a thing of beauty. The French company, who make the luxury motors, only made one of the prototype supercars, in tribute to the 110th anniversary of the company's founding.
The car is supposed to be a 'modern interpretation' of the Bugatti Type 57 SC Atlantic, of which only four were built between 1936 and 1938. The car is powered by an 8.0-litre turbocharged W16 engine. The beautiful creation can reach 420kph and can go from 0 to 100kph in 2.4 seconds, an incredible speed for a truly incredible car. Bugatti has confirmed that the car has been bought, but haven't officially confirmed it's Ronaldo.
Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly bought the most expensive car ever, Bugatti La Voiture Noire [$12m]. There's only one model of this car and it finally seems to have an owner. He can drive it from 2021.
61 31 people are talking about this.
Although it's already been bought, whoever the mystery owner it won't be able to drive it until 2021, after they've finalised the details of the prototype. Everyone knows that Juventus star Ronaldo is a big fan of his supercars. He reportedly already owns a Mercedes C Class Sport Coupe, a Rolls-Royce Phantom, a Ujn Ferrari 599 GTO, a Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4, an Aston Martin DB9, a McLaren MP4 12C and a Bentley Continental GTC Speed.
This one-off Bugatti La Voiture Noire is the most expensive new car ever sold at a base price of $12.5M and holds its value at $18M. A total output of 1500HP, I would say that it is a fast piece of modern art combined with some beautiful history from the mid-1930s.
According to reports, Ronaldo makes a sweet £6,887,520 (approx €8million) per week, so it's small change for him.
