Wales v Andorra - UEFA EURO 2016 Qualifier
As fast as the Bugatti

One of the things that human beings love doing is compare. We all love to evaluate things at every turn. Want to buy a laptop? Compare between the different brands. Want to buy anything? Compare and infer.

While doing the comparison, we begin to realise the similarities and the differences between the products. It is while doing so, that I began to find out the links between a football player and some certain cars.

And so came the concept of this article: comparing footballers to cars, and deciphering which car brands they best represent:

#5 Gareth Bale – Bugatti (Veyron and Chiron)

What’s the first thing that comes in mind when thinking of Gareth Bale? It’s perhaps the same thing that comes to your mind when thinking about a Bugatti: SPEED. Indeed, the Welsh international initially burst into the scene because of his pace: just like the Buggati Veyron.

I remember the kids in my class back in the day when the Veyron was released. We were all banged up about the fact that it could go from 0-100kmph in 3 seconds and had a maximum speed of 408kmph. When Gareth Bale was making his way into the world of competitive football, he was pretty much like the Veyron.

However, after his game against Inter Milan, he upgraded from the Veyron to the Bugatti Chiron – quicker, stronger and much more powerful. The Chiron has a larger turbo and injectors when compared to the Veyron – which is what we could say about the internationally acclaimed star that we see at the Bernabeu now, and the younger version of himself that first walked into the Bernabeu.
