4 Most Expensive Cars Bought By Sports Stars

views

Athletes are known for their luxurious lifestyle where they don’t spare any expense on the things they love. Since there is high demand for sports, athletes are heavily compensated in a form of payment reaching more than $100 million per season for some superstars like Connor McGregor, LeBron James, or Cristiano Ronaldo.

This means that they can spend a lot of money on their car collection, which is weird since they drive very rarely. With that said, let’s get down to the list and check out some of the prized possessions of some of the world’s most elite sports stars.

Floyd Mayweather

Floyd Mayweather has been in every sports headline in the past week just because of the exhibition fight against the famous YouTuber Logan Paul. In this fight, Floyd Mayweather earned anywhere from $50 to $100 million.

This allows him to spend a ridiculous amount of money on sports cars, which he does. He has a collection of 5 Rolls Royse’s, a couple of Bentleys, Ferraris, and a rare Koenigsegg Trevita which he bought for more than $3 million, which he later sold for $2.2 million just to pay taxes.

His garage has an estimated value of around $25 million.

Cristiano Ronaldo

The five-time Balon d’Or winner enjoys a luxurious life on superstar wages and eye-watering sponsorship deals that makes purchasing a Bugatti like grocery shopping for Cristiano Ronaldo.
He is a true petrol head and loves spending money on hypercars that cost multiple millions of dollars.

He was number one on the table for highest-paid athlete, after he was surpassed by Connor McGregor.

So, he needs a car collection fit for a king.

Among his impressive fleet like Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano ($350k), Lamborghini Aventador ($320k), Bugatti Chiron ($2.5m), he purchased one of the most expensive production cars in the world.

Reports suggest that he purchased a limited edition Bugatti Centodieci of which only 10 have been made. The car costs more than 12 million dollars and has an 8-liter W16 engine serving 1600hp.

LeBron James

LeBron James or otherwise known as “King James” needs to have the right car collection fit for his nickname. He is currently one of the most successful NBA star, as his career earnings will hit $1 billion this year. He is also the top small forward of all time in NBA history according to TwinSpires Edge.

With all that extra cash, he can afford some luxurious cars fit for a man of his size. Like most successful athletes, he has few incredible cars in his collection like the Porsche 911 Turbo S, Ferrari F430 Spider, and Maybach 57S just because of the extra legroom.

One car stands out in his collection and it is the Lamborghini Aventador with a Nike floral print which costs around $500K. Of course, this is nothing for a superstar that earns $39.22 million per season only from salary.

Jenson Button

The 2009 Formula One World Champion has a really impressive car collection, which is not surprising since he is with cars from 6 years old. His wealth is estimated to be more than $150 million, and over the years, he spent a large chunk of his earnings on vehicles.

Obviously, a man that has driven a Formula 1 car needs something fast which is why he decided to buy a $1.5 million Bugatti Veyron (later sold on auction for $1mil) and a more impressive McLaren P1 which costs $2.5 million.

He also owns a Ferrari Enzo valued at $2.64 million at this moment and experts predict that will start climbing in value due to its rarity.

Jenson is not all about expensive cars and 1000 horsepower. He also owns down-to-earth vehicles like Honda S600 ($30K) an old-timer Ford Anglia from ’64 and ’56 VW Campervan.

Final Words

These are some of the most expensive vehicles owned by professional athletes. There are more on the list like the MLB star Justin Verlander Maserati and Lamborghini collection or David Beckham’s Rolls-Royse Ghost, but they cannot be compared to the hypercars we mentioned in this list.

Almost every sports star doesn’t matter if we are talking about football, basketball, or baseball, owns at least one luxury car, which is all good if you have a deep enough pocket to afford it.
