Real Madrid ace Karim Benzema has the world at his feet right now. Since Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure in 2018, the Frenchman has come on his own, emerging as arguably the best player in Europe.

The 2022 Ballon d’Or favorite loves shiny things in his possession, be it sought-after silverware or bleeding edge cars. In that sense, the Bugatti Chiron is a fitting machine for the 34-year-old superstar.

For better or worse, Neymar has never shied away from basking in the spotlight.

He deceives opponents on the pitch with his flashy footwork, loves to wear a lot of bling off the pitch, and loves his cars to go fast and turn heads.

One of Neymar's most expensive cars is the Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita - said to be worth a staggering N1.7billion. This car moves up to a top speed of 425 km/h.legit.ng/1374987-neymar…

The leading goalscorer in the history of football (815 goals), Cristiano Ronaldo never settles for the second best.

The Manchester United ace has won five Champions League trophies and bagged seven league titles across three countries. Yet, he continues to push himself to the limit. His strive for perfection and need to stand out have made him a proud owner of a super exclusive Bugatti Centodieci.

As per Bild (via The Sun), the Portuguese skipper pre-ordered the Centodieci back in 2020, becoming one of the ten people to be the first owners of the iconic speed machine.

As expected, the exclusivity came at a premium, with the 37-year-old splurging a whopping $10.5 million to secure the car. Believed to be a tribute to the legendary Bugatti EB110, the Centodieci can do 0-62 mph in 2.4 seconds flat and attain a top speed of 236 mph. Deliveries of the car started in 2021.

Seven-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi is widely regarded as one of the best players to ever grace the sport.

The Argentine maverick ruled the pitch for Barcelona for 17 long seasons before joining Paris Saint-Germain as a free agent in the summer of 2021.

A leader through and through, Messi is expected to play a key role in the Parisians' Champions League campaign next season.

Messi has always striven for class and uniqueness, and his most prized automobile thoroughly reflects the aforementioned properties.

Dubbed the "prancing horse of 1957", Ferrari 335 S Spider Scaglietti is the most jaw-dropping car in Messi’s collection.

According to Goal, the 35-year-old bought the car for an eye-popping $36 million in an auction. The car, powered by a 4.0L naturally aspirated V12 engine, can breach the 300 kmph-mark without breaking a sweat.
