Portugal’s national footballer and Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo has always been known for his liking and collection of expensive cars and currently owns a number of exotic models including the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, a Ferrari 599 GTO, the Lamborghini Aventador, and a McLaren MP4 12C.
Ronaldo has bought the world’s most expensive car Bugatti La Voiture Noire priced at roughly Euros 8.5 million (approximately Rs 75 crore). Ronaldo, who recently helped his club, the Italian giant Juventus, win the 36th Serie A championship, bought the car for himself as a gift. The addition of the Centodieci takes the total value of the vehicles he owns to an estimated Euros 30 million (i.e., roughly Rs 265 crore).
The star player took to his Instagram handle to share this update with his fans. He also dropped a note saying “You choose the view”.
Bugatti unveiled the Centodieci at the 2019 edition of the Pebbles Beach Concours d’Elegance. The vehicle is inspired by and pays tribute to the iconic EB110 that was manufactured in the year 1991.
The brand’s approach to the Centodieci has been aggressive and the vehicle features what Bugatti calls a three-dimensional design. The vehicle features the company’s signature horseshoe grill that is much smaller than the one on the brand’s Chiron and Divo models.
The expensive car features five diamond shaped air inlets at the B-pillar, a large spoiler, an eight-piece LED tail light, a large rear grille, a performance diffuser, and quad exhaust pipe.
Using more sophisticated building material has resulted in a power-to-weight ratio of 1.13kgs per horsepower. The car is heavily performance oriented and brings over 90kgs of downforce.
The amazing vehicle also features a three part air intake to help keep its massive 8.0-litre engine cooler. The quad-turbo W16 engine produces 1,600bhp, and allows for the 0 to 100kmph mark to be nailed in just 2.4 seconds. Bugatti has electronically limited the Centodieci’s top speed to 380kmph.
According to reports, the brand had announced a temporary suspension in production of its Chiron and Divo models in light of the Covid-19 outbreak. However, the company did keep their testing departments operational.
