Football Stars and their cars
The one thing footballers love - after winning a match of course - is flashy cars. If you earn millions of pounds per year, why wouldn’t you splurge on a customised flashy car. Expensive cars come with the territory of being a footballer. The status, overspending and tinted windows are all part of the package.
So with the Euros in full swing, we take a look at these footballing stars and their cars. Beautiful, powerful, mega-expensive cars.
Robbie Keane - Republic of Ireland
Keane’s choice of car was a luscious Porsche 991 GT3, coined as one of the best handling track cars on the market. Keane made his international debut for Ireland back in the late 90s, while still a teenager, helping the country win the under-18 Euro cup. Keane is known to run and do a handspring through the window into the driving seat.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic - Sweden
The least – no – wait – most egotistical Swede ever – Ibra likes driving around town in this Porsche 918. With a limited production of only 918 cars, this 770 bhp hybrid car hits 0-60 in 2.2 seconds. Often ranked as “one of” today’s best football players, the tall Swede is in a class of his own when it comes to memorable quotes, whether he’s happy, angry or just in a playful mood.
Marcus RashFord - England
Marcus Rashford is only 18, he has only just signed a new contract – so he drives an Audi RS4 worth around £60,000+…. at the moment.
Cristiano Ronaldo – Portugal
Few players stride the footballing world like Cristiano Ronaldo – his legacy is already golden. Ronaldo already owns 19 cars, including a McLaren P1, which has appreciated in value from $1,000,000 at around $3,000,000 on the resale market.
Mesut Ozil – Germany
At roughly $300,000, Ozil’s Ferrari 458 is certainly expensive, but if anyone on this list deserves to treat himself, it’s Ozil – the sharpest tooth in the German buzzsaw that sliced through the 2014 World Cup. If Ozil can help Germany to Euro victory – a tournament they haven’t won in 20 years – then who knows what special treat Ozil will give himself.
Gareth Bale - Wales
If Bale leads Wales to the championship, it will be the single greatest surprise in the history of sports. On the other hand, we live in a world where Leicester is the Premiership champion, so anything is possible. In the past, Bale loved peeling around in his Lamborghini Huracán & Ferrari FF.
Kevin de Bruyne – Belgium
A midfielder noted for his flair and creativity, de Bruyne will need to be at his best for Belgium to have a chance at reaching the later rounds. Still young at 24, de Bruyne gained attention when he first signed with Manchester City in 2015, by spending more than half his first City paycheque (£150,000 out of £269,000) on customizing his Mercedes G63 AMG.
Bastian Schweinsteiger – Germany
The Euros 2016 will mark midfielder Schweinsteiger’s first major appearance as captain of the German team, and the pressure’s on. After their domination at the 2014 World Cup, much is expected of Germany.
