Juventus star player Cristiano Ronaldo recently bought the world’s most expensive car the Bugatti La Voiture Noire or Centodieci, sharing a picture of him posing with the latest addition to his car collection. Only 10 Bugatti La Voiture Noires are in existence worldwide and it is worth approximately 8.5 million euros (Rs 75 crore) as at August 2020.
Ronaldo owns an envious collection of supercars, including the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, Ferrari 599 GTO, Lamborghini Aventador and the McLaren MP4 12C. Reports said the total value of his cars is approximately 30 million euros (nearly Rs 265 crore).
As per reports, the Centodieci or Bugatti La Voiture Noire can reach speeds of 380 km per hour, reaching 60kms in 2.4 seconds.
This is not the first association that Ronaldo has had with Bugatti. This year, Nike and Bugatti jointly presented the 35-year-old footballer a special ankle boot, the Mercurial Superfly VII CR7 “Dieci” Concept boots, inspired by the Centodieci and Ronaldo’s love for football and Bugatti supercars.
The model’s new bodywork was specially designed to resemble the mighty 57 SC Atlantic but from a modern perspective. The sloped rear end and the flared rear-wheels arches are also inspired by the famous Bugatti supercar from the ’40s.
With a reshaped bodywork and the same powerful engine, the unique model is the most expensive new car ever. With the same money, you could have bought 20 Rolls-Royce cars with some options. The engine is a W16-cylinder with an 8.0-liter displacement and four turbochargers. The total output is 1600 HP and the transmission uses the same double-clutch system as the Chiron. The performance numbers were not communicated officially but we would bet for some figures close to Chiron’s.
