Cristiano Ronaldo Treats Himself With A New Bugatti Chiron

Real Madrid’s football (soccer for you guys) star Cristiano Ronaldo is living life to the fullest, and with a paycheck of over $30 million annually, it’s no wonder that his already impressive car collection keeps growing.

Over the years, the 32-year old Portuguese’s garage has seen some rare exotic machines, such as several Ferraris, Lamborghinis, and Porsches, and even a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport that he bought last year after winning the Euro Cup.

More recently, Ronaldo was seen checking out the Chiron, and taking it out for a spin at the Ehra-Lessien test track. That piece of information was confirmed by both the athlete and the Molsheim-based automaker, and now Ronaldo has shared with his 112 million Instagram followers that he took delivery of his very own Bugatti Chiron, by releasing a short video of driving it out of his garage, with his son in the passenger seat.

It’s unknown how much he actually paid for it, as this depends very much on how many options he checked from the list, but the starting price of the Bugatti Chiron is $2.6 million.

Bugatti will only make 500 units of the 1,500hp and 1,600Nm (1,180lb-ft) of torque hypercar, and it’s believed that most of them (if not all!) have already been sold.

    Good for him, he earned it. Life’s short hope he enjoys it to the fullest.

    • PB

      He earned it. Really? Kicking a f**n ball is worthy of such great reward?

        The majority of his income comes from advertising.Plus there are few peoples than can kick a ball as good as him.

        Hey.., relax man… Why don’t you play your own sport professionally and sell your performance to the crowds? If you can perform your sport good enough to draw spectators and amaze them, you would be rich, just like him. And you could buy your own Bugatti as well. 🙂

    If the world were fair, policeman, firefighters and military men would be making millions, not grown men who play children’s games. But, you get paid what you’re worth to your employer, and it’s much easier to replace a cop than it is a professional athlete. Which is why working the McDonald’s drive thru pays minimum wage, and should.

    And yes, I’m extremely salty that he’s driving away in that car and I’m commuting home in my Mazda 6.

      Hey Mazda 6’s rock. m/

      It’s a simple economics actually. All wealthy persons basically sells their products (be it goods or service) in huge volume. Think about the musician: a musician made one hit and sell them for only $1, but millions of people bought it. Do the math. $1 x 1million = $1 Million, officially makes him/her a millionaire.

      Professional athletes have similar product with musicians: their performance. It draws millions of people to buy the tickets for watching their performance. In short, if you want to be very rich, you must deliver a product that could draw million of customers. Bill Gates has millions of customers. Mark Zuckerberg has millions of customers. Taylor Swift has million of customers. So does Cristiano Ronaldo, he absolutely has millions of customers (spectators and fans who won’t be reluctant to buy his merchandise).

      The problem with employee is: she/he only has exactly ONE customer, namely her/his employer. Do the math again. Even if the employer buys his/her product (daily works) for $100.000/ month, an employee would only make $100.000 before tax. She/he will never be a millionaire in a year.

      So, wanna be rich like Ronaldo? Just make sure you have as many customers as possible. Open your own business, or be an independent consultant, or maybe a professional agent. 🙂

        Right. That’s what I said.

  • Kaisuke971

    Eh i’m kinda disappointed by the spec, one of the press/pre-production cars has pretty much exactly the same… Still a very beautiful car tho, hope this will boost all his young fans’ will to work hard.

  • Blade t

    Yeah good for him ,if you can earn that kind of money kicking a ball around might as well pick up a Chiron….

  • fabri99

    Good choice, but if I were to buy a hypercar 1) it probably wouldn’t be a Chiron (but I can see why he chose this instead of other hypercars) 2) it would be in a more…special spec. Like some unique and eccentric colour… something that has to do with gold, petrol blue or dark red. Or even the classic bicolor Bugatti blue.

  • Knotmyrealname

    Nice colour combo compared to some of the other tacky, tasteless paint jobs other rich people specify.

  • MultiKdizzle

    This guy is living the dream.

  • john1168

    Tasteful color combo. I saw one of these Chiron’s at the NYIAS. It was in dark blue and black. The blue part of it was the real eye catcher as you could see the carbon fiber weave through the blue. It was like the blue was in the carbon fiber and had a thick, deep clear coat over it. It was truly spectacular.

  • TheBelltower

    You’d think that, for such an expensive machine, one that is designed to be photographed, one that’s supposed to be such a technological marvel… that they would have figured out a way to keep the LEDs from pulsing on video like a cheap Sony alarm clock.

    • Alter Ego

      That’s cause by the camera’s frame rate not matching the frequency of the LEDs. You can’t really fix it on the car’s side. Some cameras have a feature that will detect a screen or something that causes that strobing effect. So remember to knock the lazy camera app developer and not the car. 👍
