Serie A star and soccer legend Cristiano Ronaldo is famed for his collection of multi-million dollar supercars, but his latest purchase blows them all out of the water. Say hello to the world’s most expensive car – the Bugatti Centodieci.

Fresh from celebrating Juventus’ ninth Serie A title in a row, Cristiano Ronaldo understandably wants to commemorate the occasion. Unlike the rest of us who may buy a watch or other sentimental item, he chose instead to purchase one of only 10 Bugatti Centodieci’s in the world.

Not only is the Centodieci one of the rarest cars ever produced, but it is also the most expensive production car ever to go on sale. Costing a staggering $9.4 million, the Bugatti Centodieci will take pride-of-place in Ronaldo’s incredible collection.

It’s not like Ronaldo will have difficulty paying for such an incredible car though, as his team Juventus paid a mind-blowing $99 million for his four-year contract.

Ronaldo already owns a Bugatti Chiron (itself costing $3 million) on which this 1-of-10 hypercar is based, as well as a number of other supercars. The Centodieci does have a number of key features and differences from the Chiron that make it worth the extortionate price tag.

The main talking point of the Centodieci is of course the gorgeous exterior styling, designed to emulate and pay homage to the legendary Bugatti EB110.

Immediately separating the Centodieci from the Chiron on which it’s based; The styling looks like something from a sci-fi movie with its sharp angles, full-width rear lights, and plentiful use of vents and air ducts around the body.

Over 1,000hp

It’s rear-mid mounted W16 engine features a quad-turbocharger setup producing 1,600hp – an increase of 100hp over the Chiron. The Centodieci also crushes 0-60 in 2.4 seconds, going on to a top speed of 236mph.

Despite his elevated status and worldwide fame, Ronaldo will have to get in line and wait for his new hypercar just like the rest of Bugattis customers. Deliveries are expected to start in 2021, though the upcoming Juventus Champions League run should keep him occupied for the time being.

YouTubers such as Archie Hamilton are renowned for not being able to leave their cars ‘stock.’ In his September 30 video, Archie reveals his plans for the latest addition to his fleet, the Audi RS6 Avant.

Powered by a twin-turbocharged, 4-liter V8 with over 600hp, the 2020 Audi RS6 Avant is the “ultimate family car.” In typical Archie Hamilton style, however, he has no plans to leave it unchanged.

He’s picked a fantastic base car for his build though. Opting for the ‘Carbon Black’ package, Archie’s RS6 is dripping in intricate carbon-fiber details inside and out. Not only that, but he has specified the adaptive sports exhaust, making it sound “so much better.”

Archies car also has the upgraded 22″ alloy wheels. While these do look amazing, when he mentions them Hamilton says “Are these wheels staying on the car? Hmm, I’m not going to lie” suggesting that a wheel swap is in the pipeline.

The best part of the car for AH is the interior, as “this is where it gets even better!” Inside the carbon-fiber details continue, along with an Alcantara steering wheel. His favorite things inside the car are the panoramic roof and uprated B&O audio system which are both “game-changers.”

Audi incorporates the navigation system into both the central touchscreen and the instrument cluster. Archie admits he always messes around with the system on RS models as the graphics are so good.

Moving on to speak about his plans for the car, Archie reveals that he has a number of ideas to change up the RS6’s appearance.

He says he “wants to go back to his roots” referencing his Mercedes A45 AMG. While he doesn’t want to wrap this one camouflage like his A45 he “go to town” on the RS6.

According to Archie, the wheels are going to change, along with the addition of “splitters, things like that… some seriously cool mods.” It is also going to be wrapped, but as of yet Archie has not confirmed the color, just “not satin black.”
