CRISTIANO RONALDO BUYS LAFERRARI FOR $1.4 MILLION
Portuguese soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo has just re-signed with Real Madrid making him one of the highest paid athletes in the world earning more than $23 million a year. With that much extra cash laying around there is always some money to put to good use such as buying a $1.4 Million LaFerrari and becoming one of only 499 people in the world to say that they own Ferrari’s first hybrid supercar (not bad for bragging rights).
The LeFerrari is designed to rival the McLaren P1 and the Porsche 918 Spyder. Having the distinction of being Maranello’s first hybrid, the LaFerrari is supported by two HY-KERS electric motors that assist the LaFerrari’s powerful V12 engine to produce 963 horsepower with a 0-60 in less than 3 seconds and a top speed of over 220 mph!
Ronaldo has long been known as a supercar aficionado. Other supercars that make up his collection include a Ferrari 599 GTO and a Lamborghini Aventador. Not that Ronaldo needs any more cash, but he may find the LaFerrari to be a solid investment when considering that Ferrari’s limited production Enzo has more than quadrupled in price in less than 10 years. When taking into consideration the collectability of a vehicle that is both Ferrari’s first hybrid and first supercar to break 900 horsepower, it’s easy to imagine that the LaFerrari will soar in price before too long.
