Cristiano Ronaldo runs into fame wherever he goes. The Portuguese star was recently mobbed by fans while driving his rare £ 8.8 million Bugatti through the streets of Madrid.
Ronaldo, 38, is one of only nine individuals in the world who own one of the premium French brand’s most exclusive vehicles. The Al-Nassr forward was able to get his hands on the rare Bugatti Centodieci. However, due to the crowds of fans encircling the vehicle, he was unable to fully utilize the 1,600 horsepower machine that tops out at 240mph.
The five-time Ballon d’Or champion can be seen in video footage wearing a white t-shirt, white trousers, and a black blazer as he climbs into the driver’s position of the white supercar, accompanied by a bodyguard. As some cheered his name, supporters rushed to take photos with the football legend.

Ronaldo then started the engine and rolled away quietly, scarcely audible from the huge eight-liter W16 engine. This was the first occasion Ronaldo was seen driving the vehicle he purchased last year in public.
The Centodiece – Italian for 110 – has been built to commemorate Bugatti’s 110th jubilee. As a devoted client, Ronaldo was able to secure No. 7 in the ten-car series, matching the number he has been associated with throughout his career, and the car even has a Portuguese registration.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s Car Collection and Recent Move to Al Nassr
In addition to a Bugatti Chiron and a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, the former Manchester United player has a spectacular vehicle collection that includes Aston Martins, Ferraris, Lamborghinis, and Rolls Royces.
Manchester United parted ways with Cristiano Ronaldo after the Portuguese sensation gave an explosive interview with Piers Morgan regarding the club’s management. After no interest from any top European clubs, he then joined Saudi Pro League side Al Nassr in January. He was offered a contract that made him the world’s best-paid player.
Cristiano had a dream start to life and scored nine goals, including two hat tricks in the Saudi Pro League, and even won the player of the Month award for February. He was even called up to the Portugal squad for their qualifiers of the Euros 2024 against Liechtenstein and Luxembourg where he scored a brace in each match.
Ronaldo will next face Al Adalah in the Saudi Pro League on Wednesday. Al Nassr will hope to get a win to get back to chasing the title.
