Top-rank athletes regularly earn paychecks with seven figures on them, meaning they can afford a ridiculously lavish lifestyle. With a fancy lifestyle comes exotic cars, and the cost of these cars is insane – here are five of the most expensive cars owned by athletes.

If you’re a high-paid celebrity athlete, chances are you’re going to get noticed while out on the street. Therefore, why not be noticed in a flashy, exotic car? Well, that certainly seems to be the mindset for most well-known athletes, with some spending an insane amount of money on their rides.

While it’s not unusual for well-known sports personalities to be driving around in six-figure cars, some famous names take it further than the rest. Here are the five most expensive cars owned by athletes.

5. McLaren P1 – Paul Pogba

Jeremy Clarkson once described the P1 as a ‘widowmaker’ due to its insane power.

The lowest-priced car on our list can hardly be considered cheap, considering it comes in at a cool $1.15 million.

That’s the price that Paul Pogba paid for his awesome McLaren P1. The hybrid hypercar is the crown of McLaren’s range, with 903hp.

4. Ferrari LaFerrari – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Aubameyang’s LaFerrari will certainly stand out in a crowd.

Aubameyang is a regular face at the well-known Yiannimize car customization shop in England, and his $1.3m Ferrari LaFerrari didn’t escape the custom treatment.

Wrapped in chrome to complement his Lamborghini Aventador and Lamborghini Huracan Performante, this is one of the most instantly-recognizable cars on our list.

3. Ferrari Enzo – Floyd Mayweather

The Ferrari Enzo is one of the most instantly-recognizable cars on the planet.

Floyd is an avid car collector, with no less than three fully-stocked car collections dotted around North America. With a mix of ultra-luxurious Rolls Royces and seven-figure hypercars, Floyd has it all.

One of the most iconic cars in the world is the Ferrari Enzo, and Mayweather just had to have one. Costing around $3 million, his Enzo was sold at auction, likely to make space for more incredible cars.

2. Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita – Floyd Mayweather

“Money” Mayweather makes his second entrance on this list thanks to his insane cars. Despite having some incredible vehicles in his garages, there is one standout car that he’s owned.

The Jewel in his collection is undoubtedly his Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita. This $4.8m hypercar is one of only two in existence. Sadly, Mayweather sold the car, and lost a whopping $2.2 million in the process.

1. Bugatti Centodieci – Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the most famous and well-recognized sports personalities in the world. Naturally, that comes with some big paychecks, which he spends on his extensive car collection.

The most expensive vehicle in his collection hasn’t even been delivered yet: The Bugatti Cendodieci. Costing a whopping $9m, once deliveries start, they will be one of the rarest cars on the planet.

YouTuber reveals “harsh reality” of owning insane supercar collection

TheStradman’s crazy car collection is the envy of any petrolhead, but it turns out there’s a darker side to supercar ownership. In his November 24 video, he reveals just how much he pays for his cars, as well as the upkeep on his fleet, which totals to a staggering amount of money.

From sleeping in his Audi TT to owning a Bugatti Veyron, it’s fair to say YouTuber James ‘TheStradman’ has had an incredible rise to ‘the top’ of his career. But, owning numerous supercars (and one hypercar) doesn’t come cheap, as he has now revealed.

Right from the first video of his Bugatti Veyron ownership series, he has said he wants to be as ‘open and transparent’ as possible with viewers. Given the insane costs of owning a hypercar, James has certainly delivered on his promise, even going as far as breaking down an incredible $30,000 service bill for his subscribers.

TheStradman reveals insane cost of supercar ownership

Straight away in the video, Stradman gets to the question on everyone’s lips: How much does the Bugatti Veyron cost to own? Well, it turns out that per month, the car costs him $4,765, and he cannot miss a single payment.

This is a lot of money, but given that his housemate Burlacher – who has far fewer followers – revealed he makes nearly $40k/year on YouTube, we imagine TheStradman is making enough to cover the payments, and then some.

With many viewers expecting that TheStradman paid north of $1m for his Veyron, he reveals that the overall price was in fact far less. In total, he paid only $880,000 for the Veyron, which he said will come as “no surprise” for his viewers to learn that it is financed.

Perhaps even more shocking is the amount that he put down – a total of $550,000. We know that he’s sold a lot of cars recently, but that’s still an incredibly large down payment for a car, even if it is a Veyron! James also admits that had he paid for the car outright, he would’ve been “financially wrecked” which is why he put it on finance.

While the Bugatti is sensibly financed, TheStradman revealed that he is the complete and outright owner of both his Lamborghini Aventadors, having paid off their finance agreements. Therefore, it is only a matter of time before the Veyron is also paid off. With his continued success and impressive viewing figures, hopefully, for him, it will be sooner rather than later.
