World Cup Stars and their Super Cars: Global Car classifieds Carmudi unleashes the fanciest rides of FIFA heroes
Berlin, 10th June 2014 – With FIFA World Cup around the corner, footballers from across the globe are heading to Brazil to put everything on the line for the pride of their nation. However, away from the field of play, none can deny that most of these football stars have a reputation of splurging unabashedly on racy cars. Do you know how much pride they place in their rides? Carmudi, the leading international car classifieds, digs into the brands and budgets of the super rides that catch the fancy of some of the best football players across the world.
Ronaldo – Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4
Officially recognised as the best player in the world currently, Ronaldo’s car exudes the same type of panache the footballer does with the ball at his feet. The Lamborghini Aventador is not a shy car with a lofty 700 Brake Horsepower (BHP) to help the vehicle reach a top speed of 217mph. The Ballon D’or winner’s car comes in a stealthy matte black to add that extra touch of understated style. However all this flash will set you back a hefty 450,000 USD
Lionel Messi – GranTurismo MC Stradale
A car befitting of a player held in the same regard as some of the greatest of all time. When needing to get from A to B, Messi uses a his Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale. His vehicle comes in a clean looking white, reaches a top speed of 188mph and costs upwards of 181,000 USD. Certainly a worthy drive for the only man who can stand toe-to-toe with Ronaldo in world football.
Wayne Rooney – Aston Martin Vanquish
For the talismanic Englishman it is fitting to choose a car that is British. The Aston Martin Vanquish is a car which expresses the same class on the road that Rooney does on the field. This car set Rooney back a fair amount costing 280,000 USD. However, with a top speed of 183mph and a booming engine of 565 BHP it is most certainly a car for a superstar.
Samuel Eto’o – Maybach 57 S Xanatec Coupe
At a time Eto’o was the highest paid player in the world. He is said to have a fleet of cars costing an astonishing 6,700,000 USD. Of his collection the car that stands out is his Maybach Xanantec Coupe. It costs over a million dollars and has a huge presence on the road, similar to that of the Cameroonian captain’s on the pitch.
Ribery – Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Spyder
Ribery, referred to as ‘the jewel of French football’ by the legendary Zinedine Zidane will once again be the focal point of France’s bid for World Cup glory. Ribery’s glory on the road is in the form of his Gallardo LP560-4 Spyder. Able to reach 201mph and costing 225,000 USD, his ride comes in an eye catching bright green so he is never out of the spotlight.
Neymar – Audi R8 GT
The man with the weight of a nation on his shoulders and the face of the Brazil World Cup. The talented forward chooses to cruise the roads in the Audi R8 GT. Costing nearly 250,000 USD, it reaches top speeds of nearly 200mph. Neymar has decided to keep the design simple and sleek in a bright white paint job and a classical red leather upholstery interior.
