Ronaldo Buys World’s Most Expensive Car – A £9.5 Million One-Off Bugatti La Voiture Noire! OMG Crazy.
Reports have surfaced that footballer Cristiano Ronaldo is the new owner of the one-of-a-kind Bugatti La Voiture Noire, said to be the most expensive car ever built. The Bugatti was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 2019 and was a tribute to the French luxury company’s 110th anniversary. It is reported that Ronaldo spent a staggering €11 million (£9.49 million) on the unique supercar.
The Bugatti La Voiture Noire is a modern interpretation of the legendary Bugatti Type 57 SC Atlantic, with only four models ever built between 1936 and 1938. The one-off car, which can reach speeds of up to 260 mph, is styled after the Type 57 SC Atlantic and features the company’s 8.0-liter turbocharged W16 engine. The French luxury carmaker built only one prototype of the car, which was presented to the world at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.
Initial reports suggested that the car had been bought by former Volkswagen Group chairman Ferdinand Piech. However, Spanish newspapers now report that the actual buyer was the Portuguese football star. While Bugatti has confirmed that the one-off model has been sold, the identity of the buyer has not been officially revealed.
Ronaldo has a well-known penchant for expensive cars, and the purchase of the Bugatti La Voiture Noire adds to his impressive collection. In the past, he has been spotted sitting in a Rolls Royce Phantom. The Bugatti La Voiture Noire is a truly unique and rare vehicle, and Ronaldo’s ownership of it only adds to its allure.
According to Spanish sports paper Marca, reports suggest that the new owner of the Bugatti La Voiture Noire is none other than the legendary footballer Cristiano Ronaldo. This contradicts earlier claims that the car was purchased by Ferdinand Piech, the former chairman of the Volkswagen Group. However, due to some minor details that still need to be finalized on the prototype, the owner will have to wait until 2021 to drive it.
Ronaldo is known for his impressive collection of luxury cars, which reportedly includes 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.
In addition to the Bugatti La Voiture Noire, Ronaldo is known to own at least one other Bugatti, the £1.7 million Veyron, which he purchased in 2016. The Veyron was also considered the most expensive car of its time when it was released in 2005. Ronaldo even shared a photo of his Veyron on Instagram, showcasing that his initials and shirt number are engraved on the side.
The footballer can often be seen posing with his cars on social media, and he has been photographed standing in the driveway of his home with a Lamborghini Aventador and alongside his Ferrari F12 Tour De France, another rare model in his collection.
