Cristiano Ronaldo buys £8.5m Bugatti Centodieci amid coronavirus crisis

Cristiano Ronaldo is keeping occupied during the coronavirus pandemic by adding to his car collection.

Juventus ’ superstar forward is said to have spent £8.5m on a super flash Bugatti Centodieci.

The limited edition motor, which reaches speeds of 236mph, that Ronaldo has reportedly ordered is one of just 10 to have been made.

35-year-old Ronaldo is believed to have shelled out on one of the luxury cars while on lockdown in his native Madeira.

German outlet Bild claim the Portuguese player is one of the lucky few to be getting their hands on a Bugatti Centodieci next year, when they are eventually delivered to customers.

Ronaldo is no stranger to purchasing plush vehicles, as he owns an extensive collection.

Argentine partner Georgina Rodríguez gave him a brand new Mercedes G Wagon Brabus for his 35th birthday back at the start of February, and that can cost up to £600,000.

Meanwhile, Ronaldo also has a matte-black Lamborghini Aventador worth over £200,000 and a red Ferrari, as well as a Bugatti Chiron and a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse.

They both have ‘CR7’ embroidered into the headrests, and he may get the same done if he has landed one of the Centodiecis too.

The new multi-million pound model has an 8 litre W16 engine, with special models having 1600hp – 100hp more than the Chiron at three times the price.

The Centodieci can do 0-62mph in just 2.4 seconds, so Ronaldo certainly would not have any excuses about being late for training in Turin next year.

Describing the rare model, which will be ready for 2021, French manufacturer Bugatti say on their official website: “Inspired by the historical model, the Centodieci pushes all boundaries of imagination with its breathtaking performance and pioneering design.

"Featuring a modern interpretation of the classic wedge shape and with the iconic W16 engine, the Centodieci transports the EB110 gracefully into a new millennium.

"The ten limited-edition vehicles are distinguished by their perfect elegance and sculptural beauty, making the Centodieci a true, tangible work of art."

Bugatti did not deny to Bild that Ronaldo was a buyer and offered no official comment on their report.
