Cristiano Ronaldo is undoubtedly one of the biggest stars the world of sports has ever seen in its storied history and is thus also one of the richest sportsmen actively playing the game. The Portuguese international is well-known for his extravagant collection of cars and recently he added a Rolls Royce Cullinan to his garage.
Announcing his newest acquisition, Ronaldo took to his Instagram account and posted, "Trabalho feito" which means "Work done" in his native language of Portuguese. This luxury SUV car cost Ronaldo $3.58 million but that would seem like short change for the Juventus forward as Forbes estimated him to have earned $108 million in 2018 alone.
He was estimated to have earned $61 million as a player and a further $47 million from his various brand endorsements. The Cullinan is the first ever SUV launched by Rolls Royce and as is wont, it is the most expensive vehicle of its kind in the world.
"The SUV is powered by a gigantic 6.75-litre V12 petrol engine that generates a maximum power of 563 Bhp and a peak torque of 850 Nm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed automatic unit. All this power ensures that this 2,660 kg behemoth moves swiftly despite its bulk. It comes loaded to gills with features and the features on this vehicle are not just general feel good ones that are found in otherworldly cars," reports Cartoq.
The Cullinan also boasts of some extremely cool features which include a crystal decanter and crystal wine glasses in the rear centre armrest. The SUV also has tailgate picnic seats with fold-out tables, acoustically sealed cabin and push-button for opening and closing its doors.
The Cullinan is the latest in the list of brimming luxury cars in the garage of the five-time Ballon d'Or winner. Here are some of the others.
