It’s widely believed in the realm of professional sports that the better you play the more you get paid. Football, or soccer, allows the pros to get paid handsomely for their fancy footwork. What do these players get up to with all their money? Their teams shell out plenty of dough and they also get sponsors such as Nike, Adidas, etc. It seems as if a whole lot goes into what they drive every day. Below, we will look at the top 10 cars of the world’s richest footballers (soccer players).
Some latest cars of world’s richest footballers
10. Ricardo KaKa
Kaka really likes to sport Audis. The Orlando SC and Brazil team player always seems to be sporting them from coupes to SUVs. The best looking of the group is a pearl coloured Audi Q7 white edition. Not only is it spacious, its top out speed gets up to about 140 and quickly. This seems like a more practical choice. Enough room to carry around soccer supplies and good for families as well.
9. Robin Van Persie
Manchester United’s player likes to drive around more inconspicuously compared to the other players. He is often seen driving around in his Porsche Panamera. This 4-door vehicle is gray with black interior and comes with a much better price tag than others on the list. Van Persie and Kaka seem to be the more modest ones of the group.
8. Lionel Messi
Lionel Messi is known to be one of the best players in the world. Recently he signed a soccer contract that is worth a huge sum of money and uses this to sport around a Maserati GranTourismo MS Stradale. His white, beautifully made ride is definitely one to be proud of.
7. Cristiano Ronaldo
Known to be controversial both on the pitch and in his love life, Ronaldo’s salary allows him to purchase vehicles similar to his opponents. He sports a Maserati GranCabrio, which looks just like Messi’s Maserati. Ronaldo’s is black and a convertible which adds to the appeal.
6. Sergio Aguero
Aguero is about to sign his second 5 year contract with Manchester. This, of course, means a set large paycheck for a couple years. Aguero likes to spend his loot on a black customized Lamborghini Aventador. This beautiful vehicle has fierce red rims with matching black and red interior.
5. Wayne Rooney
Manchester United’s top paid player takes his vehicles seriously. A silver Aston Martin Vanquish is a recent addition to Rooney’s collection. However, he might want to tread lightly with his spending as it is rumored he might have issues resigning his contract. These cars can cost over $200,000 easily.
4. Yaya Toure
The second best paid Manchester’s player was recently pulled over for speeding in his Porsche Cayenne. Toure’s white Porsche has a black hood with matching black and white interior. Enjoy the Cayenne Toure – just slow it down. These vehicles are known to go in excess of 170 miles per hour.
3. Fernando Torres
The La Liga club Atletico Madrid player can be seen looking quite smug getting into his Astin Martin DBS. Maxing out at 191 miles per hour and made popular by 007 movies, this sleek black coupe is something to gawk at. Another Astin Martin in the price range of $150,000 to $250,000.
2. Neymar white Audi R8 GT
This Santos pro is not shy about spending the dough. Among his purchases of a helicopter and personal yacht, he splurged on a white Audi R8 GT. Its dangerous red interior adds to the sporty look and tops out at 198 miles per hour. This is definitely the fastest car of the group, and there is no denying the fact that this young player is having the time of his life.
Top in this list of cars of world’s richest footballers
1. Didier Drogba Mecerdes-Benz SLS AMG
One of the more colourful cars of this elite list is Drogba’s Mecerdes-Benz SLS AMG. This very small white couple comes with matching white rims and bright baby blue racing stripes. This car definitely catches your attention, especially with the suicide doors. No getting away from paparazzi in this one.
If you thought these superstars shine on the pitch alone, you got to think twice. All the cars listed here cost a pretty penny. With the players being paid in the 10, 20, and 30 million dollar range, they can afford it. All of these vehicles are top name brands and coincide with their personal preferences. Of course, these are a list of just one vehicle out of many for these skilled players. With their growing salaries, I am sure these will be updated with even fancier cars.
