Cristiano Ronaldo is rumoured to be the new owner of the one-off Bugatti La Voiture Noire – reportedly the most expensive car ever built.
Reports suggest Ronaldo has spent €11million (£9.49million) on the unique Bugatti which was first presented to the world at the Geneva Motor Show 2019.
NEWS FLAKES NG gathers that the French luxury company built only one of the prototype supercar and it is a tribute to the 110th anniversary of the founding of the company.
Bugatti unveiled La Voiture Noire, a one-off super car touted as the world’s most expensive at £9.5million, at a show back in March. It has now reportedly been bought by Cristiano Ronaldo.
The 260mph car is styled after the legendary Bugatti Type 57 SC Atlantic, only four of which were ever made, and is kitted out with the company’s 8.0-litre turbocharged W16 engine.
Initial reports suggested that the car had been bought by former Volkswagen Group chairman Ferdinand Piech, but now Spanish newspapers report that the actual buyer was the legendary footballer.

Ronaldo is known to have a taste for expensive cars, pictured here sitting in what appears to be a Rolls Royce Phantom.
The car is a modern interpretation of the mythical and legendary Bugatti Type 57 SC Atlantic, four of which were built between 1936 and 1938.
The car is powered by an 8.0-litre turbocharged W16 engine and can reach 260mph.
Bugatti have confirmed the one-off model now has an owner, but have refused to officially identify them.
