It was rumored that Cristiano Ronaldo was the man behind the winning $12.5 million bid for the Bugatti La Voiture Noire—”The Black Car”—after the one-off hypercar debuted in March at the Geneva Motor Show. Bugatti executive Stephan Winkelmann did note that the vehicle had already been purchased at the time of its unveiling, but declined to reveal the identity of the purchaser.
However Ronaldo’s spokesperson told TMZ, “The story isn’t true. He has not bought it.”
The latest entry in Cristiano’s car collection is the £8.5 Million worth Bugatti Centodieci. To celebrate his 36th birthday and Juventus’s ninth straight Serie A title, Cristiano Ronaldo gifted himself a limited-edition Bugatti Centodieci worth €8 million. It can go from 0-100 km/h in 2.4 seconds. He is one of the 10 lucky owners in the world who have been able to pre-book this supercar. The new car will live alongside his Chiron and other amazing cars in his garage.
This limited-edition hypercar is based on the Chiron, which Ronaldo already owns, but has a few key changes to make it a unique offering. All we know about it is it has an 8.0-litre quad-turbocharged engine and generates 1600PS. The Bugatti Centodieci also features stacked quad exhausts for a larger rear diffuser that increases downforce and on-road stability at speed.
However, Cristiano Ronaldo will have to wait his turn just like everyone else as deliveries won’t start until 2021.
