When it comes to cars, we all have our aspirational model of choice, but imagine if you had the luxury of having the pick of every single showroom in the world; would that influence your choice?
While for most of us to achieve that, we have to have insane luck or be in line for a huge windfall, but for those at the height of sport around the world, they have a level of disposable income that many others can’t match. What that usually leads to is them spending lavish amounts of money on some of the world’s most desirable cars, leaving all petrol heads desperate to peek behind the garage doors to see what they’ve purchased.
But the good news is that you don’t need to ponder what they may have, as we’re today going to take a look at some of those marvellous motors that have found their way into the lives of some of the greatest athletes ever to grace the world of sport.
Rohit Sharma’s Lamborghi Urus
As recently reported by The Times of India, Rohit Sharma is a record-breaker renowned for his exploits with the bat on the cricket pitch, but what some may not know is that he loves to spend his time off the pitch by taking to four wheels. Sharma has been seen driving around in an impressive BMW M5, but his most prized asset is a Lamborghini Urus. The Urus is the first car of its kind, deemed a Super SUV due to Its 4litre V8 engine, which produces a staggering 641hp.
Floyd Mayweather’s Rolls Royce Cullinan
The undefeated former world boxing champion is not only renowned for his absolute mastery of the sweet science but he’s also known for his bold and somewhat arrogant, flamboyant lifestyle out of the sport. In the past, he’s owned one of only two Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita’s ever built, but one of his latest purchases focuses on glamour rather than speed. Along with a Bentley Continental Mulliner, he’s also purchased a Rolls Royce Cullinan, which he announced to the world on Instagram, of course.
Tyson Fury’s Ferrari GTC4Lusso
We go from one former boxer to one currently at the top of the tree in the heavyweight division, Tyson Fury. The British giant has an enviable collection of motors that stretch from a classic Mini Cooper to the lightning-quick Ferrari GTC4 Lusso. Fury is the biggest name in boxing right now, with a host of fights proposed for him. The unifying title fight with Oleksandr Usyk is likely to be next, one that Fury could lose, according to Coral’s boxing odds. However, if he is to get past Usyk, we may see him celebrate by adding to his collection of fantastic automobiles.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s Maserati GranCabrio
The Manchester United and Portugal football star loves his cars, and he is said to have just ordered a new Bugatti Centodieci, one of only ten that are to be made. However, while he awaits his latest delivery, he can be found driving around his favourite, a Maserati GranCabrio. The four-seater convertible has a powerful engine that offers breathtaking performance to go with its looks. Some may suggest it’s the epitome of the player, who the English Premier League side will be looking to for inspiration as they head into the final stages of this season’s UEFA Champions League competition.
