It’s no secret that sports stars love their high-end cars, from luxury to sports models, they always seem to pick the best of the best.
In fact, they tend to love their cars so much that it’s hard to keep up with who is driving what. So how can you look like a sports star yourself when driving cars here in Scotland? Well you could start by picking up one of those high-end cars!
Here are the models that are sure to propel you to sports star status.
Soccer Stars Showing Off their Wheels
When it comes to the top paid athletes in Europe, then you need to look at the football stars. It’s these sports pros that tend to drive the flashiest and most expensive cars.
Take for example international star Lionel Messi who doesn’t settle for anything less than the best. That’s exactly why he drives a Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale.
Then there is Didier Drogba, who is from the Ivory Coast and is currently playing for the Montreal Impact team, which a club in the Canadian Major League Soccer association. Now Drogba doesn’t just settle for one car, he drives a couple. He’s got both a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Roadster and a Ferrari F430.
Then we come across the most well-known player in the sport – Cristiano Ronaldo. He is known to drive a BMW M6 and something a bit more flashy – a Lamborghini Aventador.
However, when it comes to a love of high-end cars, Mario Balotelli has everyone beaten. This Italian football pro has an Audi R8, a Range Rover Evoque, a Bentley Continental GT, and a Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale. That’s practically a different car for each day of the week!
The Love of Cars Continues
Of course, it’s more than just football stars who have a love for high-end cars. You can find professionals in any sport that are only happy to drive that hot new car. Greg Norman is a professional golfer and is well-respected around the world. Norman drives a Land Rover Range Rover Sport but a special edition model that was only made for a few people.
Another golfer who has a love of fine cars is Michelle Wie, who drives a BMW X5 and a Mercedes-Benz GL550. How about tennis player extraordinaire Maria Sharapova? She drives a Land Rover Range Rover Supercharged. Andy Murray has also used his tennis playing earnings to invest in some pretty incredible cars himself. In fact, he collects luxury cars so to speak.
He’s got a Jaguar and an Aston Martin and only recently sold his Ferrari F430.
No End In Sight
It seems as though there is no end in sight to the love affair that seems to go on between professional athletes and the cars they own. For some, just one high-end car is enough, whereas others seem set on forming a whole collection of impressive cars. It’s just part of their whole persona and we love them for it!
