What do you do when you’re the world’s best footballer but you’re stuck in a coronavirus lockdown? Well, if you’re Cristiano Ronaldo, you buy a $9-million-dollar car.

Instead of getting good at Tik Tok or doing home workouts, the Juventus and Portugal striker has reportedly staved off the quarantine boredom by purchasing an ultra-rare Bugatti Centodieci.

Launched at the end of last year the Centodieci, Italian for 110, is a limited-edition variation of Bugatti’s Chiron- the world’s fastest production care. The fifth variation on the Chiron, this new version of the hyper-car was unveiled at Pebble Beach car show in 2019.

Bugatti reportedly only made ten of the Centodieci and Ronaldo is apparently one of the lucky buyers. The new car will join a host of other Bugatti’s in Ronaldo’s garage, as he is already the proud owner of a Veyron, a Chiron and the eye wateringly expensive, $18m La Voiture Noire.

These are all in addition to his Rolls Royce, his Ferrari, his Lamborghini, and the Mercedes G Wagon that he uses for pootling about, that he got for his birthday.

An homage to Bugatti’s EB110, a model produced during the early 90s, the Centodieci has an 8-litre, 1600 horsepower all-wheel drive engine that uses four turbo chargers to take you from 0-100kph in 2.4 seconds and on to a top speed of 380kph.

Despite all that, though, the Centodieci actually has a top speed some 65kph slower than the Chiron. Not that you’d be bothered about that, surely? Only a total mad-head would be upset that in theory, their car couldn’t get beyond 380kph in a straight line. Right?

Either way, the 5-time Ballon d’or winner won’t get his hands on the new car until at least 2021.
