Your Favorite Sports Superstars And The Supercars They Drive
Earl Thomas – Mclaren 600LT
Baltimore Ravens’ free safety player Earl Thomas, who would assist the Seattle Seahawks in their Super Bowl victory against the Broncos, is reportedly the proud owner of a McLaren 600LT. That’s one of the perks, we’re guessing, of signing a 4-year, $55-million deal with an NFL team. And, what’s more, this isn’t his only supercar—oh, no, it is not! A gander into Thomas’ garage and one will see a Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster. It certainly looks like this man wants some of his investments to be fast, look good, and be running around in four wheels!
Brandon Marshall – Porsche 911 GT3
Brandon Marshall, who played for a slew of NFL teams throughout his career and was last signed by the New Orleans Saints (although he was released a month later for not appearing in any games—yeah, we’re scratching our heads about it, too), is reportedly a proud owner of a Porsche 911 GT3. One amusing story about this man’s Porsche is it was included in a deal he had with fellow NFL player Antonio Brown. The deal—or bet—was that Brown could keep his Porsche if he managed to get more receiving yards than him. To Brown’s credit, he did receive more yards than Marshall and won the bet, but opted instead for the financial equivalent of the car to be donated to a charity of his choice.
Marshall Lynch – Lamborghini Aventador
Marshall Lynch is now a free agent, and we’re not sure which team he’ll be signing up with next season, but it’s safe to say he’s managed to accumulate a gargantuan amount of wealth throughout his career after playing for various NFL teams. And one of the most conspicuous investments he’s made from said wealth is a white Lamborghini Aventador—and, damn, it is looking mighty fine! Indeed, Lynch seems to love his Lambo so much that it was once photographed with velvet ropes on either side of the car, placed there by none other than Lynch himself.
Julio Jones – Ferrari 458 Spyder
Wide receiver for the Atlanta Falcons, Julio Jones, who in 2018 became “the fastest player in NFL history to reach 10,000 career receiving yards,” decided at some point in the recent past that his credit score was too big and needed shaving. He eventually decided that a Ferrari 458 Spyder was the best way to shave off some of his money and keep him humble. We kid, of course! In all seriousness, however, Jones is actually a supercar lover, and this Ferrari 458 Spyder with Forgiato wheels is reportedly only one of a few supercars that the man owns.
Aaron Rodgers – Mercedes Benz SLS AMG
Quarterback for the Green Bay Packers, Aaron Rodgers, who has managed to set more than a few passing records throughout his career and is widely considered to be one of the best quarterbacks in the history of the sport, reportedly drives around in a Mercedes Benz SLS AMG. It’s definitely not the only amazing car he has though since it’s also been reported that he has $3 million worth of enviable cars in his garage and that this Mercedes AMG is just one of them. Of course, none of this is surprising for an elite NFL superstar with Rodger’s degree of success.
Amari Cooper – BMW I8
Wide receiver for the Dallas Cowboys, Amari Cooper, who was considered one of the top wide receivers during the 2015 NFL draft and who is still at 26 years old at the height of his career, reportedly drives around and luxuriates in a BMW I8 hybrid supercar. Not bad for a kid who came from a low-income area to become the number 4 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft. As of 2020, the young football player was, to his credit, able to accumulate a net worth of $12 million. While it’s not as high as some of his colleagues, he’s only 26 and still has his whole career ahead of him.
Michael Strahan – Porsche 911 GT3 RS
Retired professional football player, Michael Strahan, who holds the distinction for having the most sacks in a single season in 2001 and is now in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, reportedly drives around in an ultra-sweet Porsche 911 GT3 RS. And, why shouldn’t he?—he’s worth $65 million after all. It’s not the only car in Strahan’s garage that’s drool-worthy, however, because he’s made quite a sizable investment in more than a few luxury cars, including a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Roadster, a Rolls-Royce Drophead, a Mercedes SL65 Black Series, and more.
Tom Brady – Aston Martin DB11
Ah, Tom Brady, the man with a fantastically enviable life. He’s a quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, earning millions of dollars in salary and endorsements and is married to a supermodel. He’s also got real estate investments all over the country and a car collection that includes an Aston Martin DB11, an Audi R8, a Rolls-Royce Ghost, and more. We guess those are the perks of being worth $180 million and having a wife with a net worth of twice that. It really must be awesome to wake up every morning just to look at the mirror and have Tom Brady staring at you.
Frank Gore – Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead
Running back for the New York Jets, Frank Gore, who assisted the 49ers to reach Super Bowl XLVII only to eventually lose to the Baltimore Ravens back in 2012 and is reportedly also the oldest active running back in the league, is said to be the proud daddy of a drop-dead gorgeous Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead. Well, how much money did Gore drop for his uh… Drophead, you ask? Oh nothing, really—just close to $1 million! A Rolls-Royce is, to some degree, the pinnacle of luxury driving, after all, so we didn’t really expect anything less.
Joe Haden – Lamborghini Aventador
A cornerback for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Joe Haden, who reportedly has a net worth of $20 million, is said to drive around in an orange, custom Lamborghini Aventador. Haden is currently one of the most exciting cornerbacks, after all, so it isn’t all that surprising that he’ll be skipping a few worthwhile investments for shiny and enviable toys. It’s been reported that he dropped $400,000 for the orange Lambo, but that price didn’t include all the additional luxuries he added to the car, which pictures of it make clear were a lot. And, not just that, Haden also reportedly purchased a Rolls Royce Ghost sometime in 2017, so it’s safe to say that this is a man living life to its fullest.
Aaron Donald – Karma Revero
Defensive tackle for the Los Angeles Rams, Aaron Donald, who named the Associated Press NFL Defensive Player of the Year twice and was ranked in 2019 as the Best Player in the NFL (whoah!), reportedly—and immediately—got a $130,000 Karma Revero after getting a contract extension with the Rams. And, trust us, $130,000 is nothing for Donald because the contract he signed was worth $135 million for six years—which isn’t even counting the $40 million signing bonus! To Donald’s credit, he also used his football earnings in the past to buy his parents the home they wanted. Awww! Isn’t that sweet?
Pat O’Donnell – Mclaren 570S
Patrick Michael O’Donnell, a punter for the Chicago Bears, reportedly dropped $200,000 plus on a Mclaren 570S. To be sure, this particular McLaren isn’t as pricey as most in McLaren’s line of vehicles, but it’s no slouch on the road, either, with its ability to get from naught to 60 in as fast as 3 seconds. Besides, just look at the thing and tell me with a straight face that it won’t get its share of gawkers on the street. Mr. O’Donnell might not be as in demand in the NFL as others on this list, but to his credit, he’s living a life just as baller as they are.
Odelle beckham jr – Rolls Royce Cullinan
Wide receiver for the Cleveland Browns, Odelle Beckham, who, according to his Wikipedia page, became “the first player to record more than 75 receptions, 1,100 yards, and ten touchdowns in a rookie season,” is reportedly living life to the fullest by rocking a heavily customized orange Rolls Royce Cullinan. And, with a net worth of around $25 million, the man who holds the distinction of being one of the most admired rookies in the history of the NFL can definitely afford it. We’re pretty sure that this Cullinan is just one of his many luxury vehicle investments, and we can’t wait to take a peek into his garage.
Antonio brown – Rolls Royce Wraith
Antonio Brown, a professional football punter who last played for the New England Patriots but is now on free agent status, reportedly owns this peculiar-looking Rolls Royce Wraith. Actually “peculiar” might not be the right word to describe the two-toned, funky-painted, yellow-and-black luxury vehicle, because the word suggests it doesn’t look as unbelievably cool as it does. In any case, we don’t really expect anything less than a gas-guzzling Rolls Royce from the NFL’s one-time highest-paid wide receiver. Interestingly, Brown had this car wrapped with a galaxy design at one point, which naturally raised a few eyebrows.
Cam newton – Ferrari F12 Berlinetta
Former Carolina Panthers’ quarterback Cam Newton, who’s now currently a free agent and has been able to break various records as a quarterback, including that of Peyton Manning’s 120-yard first game throw, is reportedly a proud owner of a blacked-out, gas-guzzling Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. The price of the car is estimated to be north of $330,000—one can literally buy a helicopter for less than this. Interestingly enough, a dump truck was said to have hit Newton’s car in 2018, but the scratch was so small that it didn’t merit a police report.
Alfred morris – Mazda 626
Alfred Morris, a running back who played for various NFL teams throughout his career, including the Washington Redskins, the San Francisco 49ers, and the Arizona Cardinals, is amusingly still happy with his old, beat-down Mazda 626. He reportedly purchased the car way back in 1991 for—wait for it!—$2 and has kept it ever since. This despite that he’s as far from bankruptcy as one would expect an NFL player to be and makes millions of dollars from the league. Happily, Mazda, impressed by Morris’ frugality, offered to refurbish the car. We’re not sure if Morris took Mazda’s offer, but it’s likely he did.
Reggie bush—1967 Ford Shelby Mustang
Former football running back Reggie Bush, who played for various teams throughout his career and, to his credit, won the Heisman Trophy for being the most outstanding player in the nation, reportedly owns a very drool-worthy 1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. For those who grew up watching the film Gone in Sixty Seconds, owning a Ford Mustang Shelby that was made in the ‘60s is a dream. Apparently, Bush also spent north of $800,000 pimping the car out. The car is a literal work of art. And while the man has more than a few expensive cars inside his garage, this one will certainly be the best.
Robinson Cano — Ferrari 458 Italia
The second baseman for the New York Mets, Robinson Cano, who won the gold medal and MVP award during the 2013 WBC tournament as well various other awards throughout his career including the 2011 Home Run Derby, the 2017 All-Star Game MVP, and more, reportedly owns a highly customized gold Ferrari 458 Italia. You’d think owning a Ferrari 458 is obscene enough, Cano’s has a gold “wet mirror” finish that elicits “oohs” and “aahs” wherever it goes. I guess these are the kinds of flimsy investments one has the luxury of making after signing, as Cano has, a $240-million sports deal.
Joe Johnson — Ford F-650
Seven-time NBA All-Star Joe Johnson, who was referred to as “Iso Joe” for his talent on the court, owns this unbelievably huge truck. To get an idea of just how big it is, imagine that the Ford F-150, which is America’s best selling truck, simply pales in comparison to the size of this, a Ford F-650. This truck will consume massive amounts of gas during normal commutes, but we guess that won’t be a problem for Johnson, who is, after all, a sports superstar. The total price he spent for this beast is reportedly around $200,000—the price of a home for us, but chump change for Johnson.
Lionel Messi — Maserati Gran Turismo
Captain of Spanish Football club Barcelona, Lionel Messi, who is widely regarded as the best football player of all time—not just currently, mind you, but of all time—is reportedly a proud owner of a Maserati Gran Turismo. Of course, it would be insane to think that this is his only luxury car, considering he’s worth $285 million. We’re sure this is just one of the many drool-worthy cars he uses, but still, this thing is no slouch, costing around $150,000. Of course, the price of Messi’s is, to a huge degree, so much more than that when you add up all the customization and tweaks he’s had put in.
Lebron James — Lamborghini Aventador
Does Lebron James even need any introduction? He’s often compared to Michael Jordan, and some—wrongly, I have to say—think he’s even better than Michael Jordan at the sport of basketball. The man is worth hundreds of millions of dollars, so it’s only fitting that one of the cars in his garage is a Lamborghini Aventador, perhaps one of the most sought-after supercars in the world. The price of an Aventador? Only around $200,000—not all that much for a man like Lebron James. And, to Lebron’s credit, he knows how to pick a paint job. That floral pattern on his Lambo matches his X1 “King’s Pride” floral shoes.
Justin Verlander — Mercedes SLS AMG
Pitcher for the Houston Astros Justin Verlander, who has received a slew of MLB awards that will put him on anyone’s shortlist of best baseball players today, not only gets to come home to supermodel Kate Upton but also a pimped out Mercedes SLS AMG. Verlander, of course, is a noted car enthusiast, and he has more enviable cars in his garage than we’ve got teeth, including a Ferrari 458 Italia, an Aston Martin DBS, and more. So, yeah, life is pretty sweet to this sports superstar, and yeah, we’re jealous to some degree.
Serena Williams — Bentley Continental GT
Ask anyone who they think is the greatest female tennis player in the world and you’ll rarely hear any name other than Serena Williams. She has, to her credit, won 23 Grand Slams, after all, which is the most titles won by a single player in the sport. She is a literal beast on the tennis court, and it will take a long time for anyone to match both her skill and accomplishments. So it’s only fitting that Serena rides around in one of the most enviable cars in the world, a Bentley Continental GT.
Henrik Lundqvist — Lamborghini Gallardo
Hockey goaltender for the New York Rangers, Henrik Lundqvist, who is referred to as “King Henrik” for his talents inside the hockey rink and is reportedly the only goaltender in the history of the NHL to record eleven 30 win seasons in his first 12 seasons, is said to drive around in a Lamborghini Gallardo. Lundqvist is known to be a car fanatic who prefers Maseratis over anything, but this Gallardo is definitely, to a huge degree, one of his more prized 4-wheelers, not least because of its absolutely sick metallic flake paint job that makes it look amazing under the sun.
Cristiano Ronaldo — Bugatti Chiron
Cristiano Ronaldo, who is often considered the best football player in the world today (to be sure, some would give that distinction to Messi), owns a very expensive Bugatti Chiron. Just to give you an idea of how expensive a Bugatti Chiron is, consider that a lot of the cars in this list, whether Lamborghinis, Benzes, or Rolls-Royces, are priced around the $200,000 to $300,000 range. Now consider that a single Bugatti Chiron an investment of $3 million. That’s how expensive a Chiron is. And that will also give you an idea of how absolutely baller Cristiano Ronaldo is.
Floyd Mayweather — Koenigsegg Ccxr Trevita
Floyd Mayweather, who is perhaps one of the best pound-for-pound boxers in the world today, owns a garage that’s filled with luxury supercars. And, apparently, one of those supercars is a Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita, which costs around $4.8 million. Of course, to a huge degree, that’s chump change for Mayweather, who’s reportedly worth more than $500 million. Also, this Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita costs only half of what Mayweather was paid to fight Tenshin Nasukawa in Japan. If you want to know how insane that fight was, and how much of a baller Mayweather is, consider that he was paid $9 million for that fight which lasted two minutes.
J.R. Smith — Gurkha
J.R. Smith, who currently plays for the Los Angeles Lakers, reportedly rides around in a humongous Gurkha. And we seriously haven’t heard of Gurkhas before, but if the pictures of it are any indication, it looks like an absolute beast of a vehicle. It looks like it can go through the Amazon rainforest if Smith wanted it to. Apparently, Gurkhas are more used in combat environments—clearly!—but Smith took out his credit card and decidedly got one for himself. The cost? Only about $400,000 if one added the various upgrades and tweaks! At least Smith can rest assured that he’s all set up should a post-apocalyptic zombie invasion occur.
Yoenis Cespedes — Alfa Romeo 8C
Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes apparently wanted to drive a different car for Spring Training each day of the week, and among the many that he has ridden was an Alfa Romeo 8C. It was definitely one of our favorites, not least because of its peculiar but charming look. The cherry-red beauty retails for around $250,000, which won’t put a dent on Cespedes’ credit score because he’s reportedly earning an average of $27.5 million per year. Of course, Cespedes rode other drool-worthy vehicles to Spring Training, including a pimped-out monster Ford F-250 truck, a Lamborghini Aventador, and a Polaris Slingshot Motorcycle.
Maria Sharapova — Porsche 911 Cabriolet
One of the most talented tennis players to come out in this decade, Maria Sharapova, who was ranked the number 1 player in the world at the young age of 18, reportedly drives around in a Porsche 911 Cabriolet. And, to some degree, it’s entirely possible she spent nothing on the car because she happens to be one of Porsche’s prized endorsers. Apparently, Sharapova only preferred SUVs until she tried riding in a Porsche 911 Cabriolet and got hooked. In any case, the car would have set Sharapova back $200,000 had she paid for it, but as we said, it’s unlikely that she did.
David Beckham — Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead
Football superstar David Beckham owns more than a dozen luxury vehicles, but one of the more noteworthy ones that used to be in his garage was a Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead. Indeed, the man can be frequently spotted driving in and around Beverly Hills in the ultra-expensive vehicle. While we’re not sure how much his credit card company charged him for the Drophead, what’s certain is that it must be more than the $400,000 retail price because of all the customization and add-ons. It’s been reported that he put it on the market for $390,000 though, and we’re sure that whoever decidedly purchased the car must be another baller like he is.
Felix Hernandez — Nissan GT-R
Felix Hernandez wasn’t nicknamed “King Felix” for nothing. In 2012, Hernandez was reportedly able to throw a perfect game, and it was only the 23rd time that such a thing happened in MLB history. That’s not all, Hernandez was able to beat a lot of player records in the MLB that will be tedious to list. So let’s just dive right into the car he rides. It is, to some degree, very modest; it’s a Nissan GT-R—a very popular and affordable sports car. While it may cost tens of thousands of dollars less than, say, a Porsche 911 Turbo, it’s nothing to yawn about, because it can totally annihilate a 911 Turbo in a drag race.
Derrick Rose — Bentley Mulsanne
Point guard for the Detroit Pistons, Derrick Rose, was at one point pictured shoveling out the snow surrounding his Bentley Mulsanne. Of course, it wasn’t surprising, given he’s a known car collector who has a lot of luxury cars inside his garage. Indeed, he also reportedly owns a Maserati Gran Turismo and a Rolls Royce Wraith. We’re sure those aren’t all, because the man is worth $85 million, has a slew of real estate investments, and is one of the top players in the NBA today. But the Bentley Mulsanne, priced at over $300,000, is definitely one of his best toys.
John Cena — Custom Corvette
Professional entertainment wrestler and actor John Cena, who is ranked among the greatest entertainment wrestlers of all time, has a garage that’s literally filled with expensive cars. He’s reportedly got a Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, a 1969 COPO Chevrolet Camaro, a 2007 Dodge Charger SRT-8, and more. Indeed, one can notice that Cena likes muscle cars, and it could be because he’s got a lot of muscles (stupid joke, we know). But among his gems is custom Corvette like no other. He calls it the InCENArator, and it literally looks like a spaceship. In fact, it’ll be hard to describe, so just take a gander at the pictures and tell us if, at $200,000, it was a worthy investment.
Bubba Watson — Cadillac Lasalle C-Hawk Roadster
Professional golfer Bubba Watson, who’s noted for being one of a few left-handed golfers in the PGA (among other things, of course), reportedly drives around in this really funky looking Cadillac Lasalle C-Hawk Roadster. It’s a car that looks out of this world, but hey, anyone who owns this is sure to get stares. We’re not sure how much money Watson had to drop to grab this peculiar-looking 4-wheeler, but if our research is accurate—and it almost always is—then it must be in the range of $250,000. To his credit, he decided to purchase something far from the usual, despite that the money he shelled out is already Lamborghini territory.
Aroldis Chapman — Lamborghini Murciélago
Cuban-born Aroldis Chapman, who pitches for the New York Yankees, reportedly holds the record for the fastest recorded pitch in MLB history, as well as the Guinness World Record for the fastest baseball pitch. So you can tell he’s not just some run-of-the-mill kind of baseball player and is in fact one of the best in the world. And the best in the world will almost always drive around in the best cars in the world, and Chapman is no exception. Indeed, the man reportedly threw a curveball at his financial advisor by dropping a ton of money on a Lamborghini Murciélago early on in his career.
Mario Balotelli — Bentley Continental
Italian professional football player Mario Balotelli was Italy’s top scorer in the FIFA Confederations Cup and is worth an estimated $60 million. So of course dropping a couple of hundred thousand dollars for a pimped-out Bentley Continental is, to a huge degree, nothing for the man. He’d have just as much anxiety about buying the vehicle as we would have when buying a pair of shoes. He even wackily had it wrapped in a camouflage-like design that we’re not too sure we like. But, whatever, it’s still a Bentley Continental, a car we will never own in a million years.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic — Ferrari Monza SP2
Swedish football player Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a known car enthusiast. Indeed, his garage reportedly has a Porsche 918 Spyder and a LaFerrari. Among his prized vehicle investments, however, is a Ferrari Monza SP2, in which he’s often been photographed riding in-and-around the streets of Stockholm. What is the price of this absolutely stunning vehicle, you ask? Well, only $2 million! Which is chump change for Ibrahimovic, who’s reportedly worth $200 million? Not only that, but it’s also been said that only a select few in the world own a Ferrari Monza because Ferrari only made 499 of them worldwide.
Samuel Eto’o — Bugatti Veyron
Retired professional football player Samuel Eto’o Fils is regarded as the best striker during his time and would be in the shortlist of the best strikers in history. Indeed, his name will frequently be mentioned when talking about the most celebrated African football players in the history of professional football—that is simply how good he is. It is no wonder Eto’o was able to amass $100 million throughout his career and create a garage that’s fitted with the most expensive cars in the world, including a Bugatti Veyron, which costs around $1 to $2 million per piece. Not just that, his vehicular investments also include an Aston Martin V12 Zagato, a Porsche Gemballa Mirage, and a Maybach Xenatec.
Jenson Button — Mclaren P1
Racecar driver and 2009 Formula One World Champion, Jenson Button, who’s won more than his share of racing events throughout his fantastic racing career, reportedly owns quite a number of luxury sports vehicles, including what he’s often seen driving around, a McLaren P1. And anyone who’s familiar with a McLaren P1 knows it’s one of the few superheroes of supercars, of which only 375 exist in the world. But that’s not only what Button owns, his vehicular investments include a quite a Mercedes C63 AMG, a Nissan GT-R, and quite a few Ferraris. I guess one who’s worth $150 million like Button is, can be expected to have a garage that insanely enviable.
Ian Poulter — Ferrari Enzo
English professional golfer Ian Poulter reportedly has a garage filled with the most insane Ferraris. And, I know what you’re thinking; you’re thinking who the hell is Ian Poulter? Yeah, we were initially scratching our heads, too. But apparently, he’s very good at golf and is in fact listed as the top 5 best golf players in the world. We don’t follow golf, and to some degree, many people don’t too, so the only player we know is Tiger Woods, but we can confirm that it’s a sport that pays a lot of money. Which is why Mr. Poulter has a Ferrari Enzo, among other Ferraris inside his garage.
Lewis Hamilton — Pagani Zonda 760 LH
Six-time Formula World Champion Lewis Hamilton, who is frequently ranked as one of the most successful Formula One drivers of all time, is reportedly worth an estimated $285 million. So of course, you just know his garage is filled with awesome cars. And among those cars is a really sick—a really absolutely sick!—Pagani Zonda 760 LH. How much is a car like that, you ask? Well, only around $2.6 million, which is chump change for Hamilton. Indeed, a chunk of Hamilton’s investment portfolio consisted of cars—amazing cars—and they are said to be more diverse and expensive than either the real estate or jewelry he has.
Manny Machado — Bentley Continental GT
Dominican-American baseball player for the San Diego Padres, Manny Machado, who is, to his credit, recognized as one of the best fielders of the MLB today, is often seen driving a very beastly Bentley Continental GT. A car like this would retail for around $220,000, which is insane for us plebeians but totally normal for MLB superstars like Machado. In any case, Machado’s car collection is reportedly worth $500,000, which already makes this Bentley Continental GT half his garage’s total worth. Well, since the man is only 28 years old and is an excellent baseball player, we’re sure his garage will be filling up with more than a few expensive cars in the future.
Peyton Manning — Toyota Sequoia
Peyton Manning, a retired NFL quarterback who’s considered to be one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time as well as has a net worth of around $250 million, drives around in a surprisingly modest Toyota Sequoia. Sure, he can buy Rolls Royces and Ferraris, but he didn’t. In fact, despite that Manning knows he’ll never be experiencing bankruptcy ever, prefers cars that are neither excessive nor over the top. In fact, the most expensive car that he has that people know about is a Cadillac Escalade, which isn’t cheap but is nowhere near the cars of many superstars on this list.
Roger Federer — Mercedes Benz
It will be hard to keep track of what type of Mercedes Benz tennis superstar Roger Federer will be driving at any given time since he swaps it out every six months. I guess that is among the perks of being an international sports superstar who is paid to endorse Mercedes Benz. So, for Federer, it can be an AMG tomorrow, an S-Class next week, and a G-Class the week after—it will, to a huge degree, all depend on his mood. Of course, the man is worth $450 million and is considered to be one of the best tennis players in history, so he’s likely to get anything he wants when he wants it.
Rafael Nadal — Kia Stinger GT
Rafael Nadal, who will be on anyone’s shortlists of Best Tennis Players in History, is worth so much money that he can afford any car he likes. But we suppose that part of his agreement with Kia—he endorses the brand, after all—requires him to ride a Kia Stinger GT. It is definitely not a cheap car, but for someone like Nadal who can buy the most expensive cars in the world, a Kia would be a bit, how shall we say, incongruous. In any case, the car, to Kia’s credit, does look good. And it can do naught to sixty under 5 seconds.
Martina Hingis — Mercedes Slk
Multiple Tennis Grand Slam Champion Martina Hingis has already retired from the sport. But she’s definitely been able to amass a galactic amount of wealth during her time that luxury cars will simply be par for the course for someone like her. Indeed, Hingis reportedly loves top-down Mercedes Benzes, can often be seen driving a few and is said to own a Mercedes SLK, among the many top-down Benzes that she owns. An SLK is, to a huge degree, far from being the most expensive car in the world, and we’d say it’s somewhat mid-tier when it comes to luxury vehicles, but it’s still something us plebeians will never be seen in.
Venus Williams — Mercedes G-Class
Venus Williams is a fantastic tennis player in her own right. True, she’s somewhat been overshadowed by her over-performing, unbelievably talented, and once-in-a-million-years-kind-of-athlete sister Serena Williams, but Venus had her time to shine in the sport of Tennis, too. Of course, she’s amassed a huge amount of wealth like her sister has and has an investment portfolio that included ownership in various sports teams, so it’s totally unsurprising that the woman drives around in a pimped-out Mercedes G-Class that gets its share of gawkers on the street.
Gianluigi Buffon — Jeep Grand Cherokee
Gianluigi Buffon, an Italian professional football player who is widely regarded to be one of the best goalkeepers of all time, is another Peyton Manning who opts for cheap vehicles rather than expensive ones. The man is estimated to be worth $25 million, but it might surprise you to know that he’s very—very—frugal. Indeed, he drives around in a Jeep Grand Cherokee, which is a car that’s expensive by our standards but will be monumentally cheap for the standards of someone like Buffon. Sports superstars like Buffon who don’t expend their investment money on flashy cars are definitely rare, but they do exist.
Neymar Da Silva Santos Júnior — Ferrari 458 Spider
Neymar Da Silva Santos Junior—popularly referred to as just “Neymar”—is another professional football player who is widely considered to be one of the best in the world. His garage is filled with the most expensive cars, we are told, including a Ferrari 458 Spider, a Tuned Ferrari F12berlinetta, a Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster, and more. But I guess it’s all par for the course for someone who is worth $185 million. Not only that, but Neymar also has an investment portfolio that included planes and helicopters. Let that sink in.
P.k. Subban — Bugatti Veyron
Ice Hockey defenceman for the New Jersey Devils P.K. Subban has a really enviable life. He was only 24 years old when he signed a $72-million contract with the Canadiens, and now, at only 31 years of age, is already worth north of $35 million. So you just know that he’s got an insane garage, right? And you’d be absolutely right to think that, because the man has a cherry red Bugatti Veyron that’s worth more than $2 million. Not only that, but his vehicular investment portfolio also includes a Rolls Royce Wraith, a Lamborghini Aventador, and a Ford Shelby Mustang.
