Forward from “Barcelona” Lionel Messi has bought a Ferrari for €32 million. What other cars in his garage?
Argentinian football player took away € 32 million at auction for the Ferrari 335 S Spider Scaglietti 1957, beating the previous record from € 3 million to the Spanish.
In accordance with Tuko.co.ke the main competitor at the auction in the fight for a rare car was the Forward player from “Real” Cristiano Ronaldo.
Unlike his chief rival on the football field, Messi fleet is not very big. Ronaldo has in the garage more than 20 cars, among which are very rare examples, but Lionel is not so. In his garage only 11 cars and among them there is no rare.
Interestingly, if Messi decides to sell his “new” Ferrari 335 S Scaglietti Spider, then he will be able to buy just three of the Ronaldo fleet! Earlier, the Argentine had never purchased a car more than $400 000, and then such a purchase. What cars Messi already has in the garage?
Five-liter Lexus appeared many years ago. Light sedan produces 423-horsepower. When forward bought this car, its price started from $ 75 000. Utter nonsense for Leo.
Ferrari F430 Spider
For such a “Ferrari” in the base Messi would have paid $190 000, but Messi added a couple of functions. One of the options was painting with special rare gray color, which increased the cost up to a quarter million. Acceleration to “100 km/h” in this beauty for only four seconds and a top speed is 315 km/h, 15 km/h more than the new purchase of the Lionel. It took half a century, and the speed hasn’t increased greatly.
Maserati Granturismo MC Stradale
At the time of purchase this car had the loud name “The fastest Maserati”. Under the hood is a 4.7-liter engine V-shaped “eight” which gives out 450 horsepower. Messi recently gave the car to his close friend, allegedly, the wife is afraid that Leo will chase and break.
Dodge Charger SRT8
Classic “American car” is of bright red color. Great engine, plenty of horsepower (470), attractive price ($80 000). However, when you start to imagine how Messi is going to drive in this huge car, the smile comes by itself.
White SUV from Audi, which Messi drives together with his wife Antonella and sons Thiago and MATEO. Great family car, white color allows it not to heat up under the scorching Spanish sun.
It is another representative of Audi in Messi garage. Not surprising, that the German concern has been for a long time a sponsor of Barcelona. R8, or, as it is called, “Lamborghini” for the poor”, has under the hood 550 horsepower and can accelerate to 100 km/h in less than four seconds. Price is about $200 000.
The Audi R8 GT
A modified version of the Audi R8 with the prefix GT. Maximum speed remains the same, but the acceleration is amazing – 3.6 seconds to “hundred”. Charged supercar was the most expensive car in the garage of Lionel Messi – $400 000.
Mini Cooper S cabriolet
It is one of the first cars in Messi garage. Little English classic car is like the Forward for “Barcelona” due to its practicality. Its size and maneuverability allow standing less in traffic jams and the open roof give sunburn and save you from the heat.
The most interesting car in the garage of Lionel Messi. The Argentinian didn’t buy it, but has received as a gift from the company “Toyota”. The cost of this car is $20 000. The Prius is an electric car that hasn’t the best design and is often the object of ridicule. Just imagine how they will look together under one roof — gray Prius, which Messi probably never even start, and a bright red Ferrari 335 S Scaglietti Spider. Instead of one such Ferrari, Leo could afford to buy 1800 “Priuses”.
Range Rover Vogue
The new car of Lionel. The player uses this car in everyday life. This is not surprising, because of the latest generation of Vogue is supposed to be one of the most comfortable cars in history. You can fall apart in the back seat, and can sit behind the wheel and to rock on the track.
