Cristiano Ronaldo’s appetite for super cars is insatiable, and now reports have surfaced that the five time ballon d’Or winner has added yet another master engine to his multi-million garage.
It is understood the Juventus star has purchased the one-of-a-kind Bugatti La Voiture Noire that was first presented at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show.
La Voiture Noire – French for “the black car” — was unveiled as the main event for the French company at this year’s Motorshow.
While the final price is yet to be confirmed, Bugatti disclosed that the car was bought for £9.5 million estimated at £14.4 million including tax.
According to Mirror UK, Ronaldo has bought the unique Bugatti priced at an eye-watering 14.4million, making it “the most expensive new car of all time”.

The superior machine has six exhaust pipes, illuminated lettering and an 8.0-litre turbocharged W16 engine that can reach up to 420 kph on a good day.
Bugatti confirmed reports that their one-off model now had an owner and all fingers point at that owner being the Portuguese football star.
Earning around 26m per year, the footballer has enough financial muscle to do so and his love for Bugatti is something hawk-eyed.
However, Ronaldo will not be able to drive the car until 2021 as the company is said to be still finalising and making some few touches on the prototype.
The former Real Madrid star’s garage is said to include a Ujn Ferrari 5999 GTO, a Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4, a Mercedes Clase C Sport coupe and a Rolls Royce Phantom.
He also owns a Mclaren MP4 12C, a Bentley Continental GT and an Aston Martin DB9.
