With all that cash in his bank account, Messi can afford to buy any and everything his heart desires – mostly cars – which he has a huge collection of. Well, there are some that he actually didn’t buy, he received as gifts or rewards for his hard work, and that of the entire team, but that doesn’t mean he cannot afford to buy them himself.
There’s even one that he actually outbid Ronaldo for during an auction, so his pockets run deep. Here are the cars in Messi’s garage, some we can afford, and some we just can’t dream of.
CAN’T DREAM OF: MASERATI GRAN TURISMO MC STRADALE
Messi is one of the most expensive football players in the world and also the highest paid player. With all his money he can acquire any ride of is choice, in his garage he has a lot of cars one of them is a Maserati Gran Turismo MC Stradale. Messi often use car while he is in his home in Argentina. Stradale is light, more performance oriented and more powerful than standard cars.
The sport grand touring car is fitted with a 4.7-liter V8 engine under its hood and it produces a maximum of 444bhp and 510 Nm.
The power pushes the car from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.6 seconds and doesn’t stop at that point until it reaches a maximum speed of 301 km/h. The two-seater Italian masterpiece weighs about 1770 kg with fluids on board, a weight that was achieved by Maserati by throwing out sound and vibration insulation and back seats, and by putting carbon fibre racing bucket up front instead of the heavier regular item and by a few other routes.
CAN’T DREAM OF: FERRARI F430 SPIDER
One of the Ferraris that the little number ten has in his garage is the F430 that was designed by Pininfarina with aerodynamics simulation programs that are used for Formula 1 cars. Only one button push is needed top the top of the car into its lascivious splash of aluminium bodywork in 20 seconds. The F30 is a performance car. Its 483-hp, 4.3-liter V-8 engine produces power that is enough to push the car from 0 to 60 in about 3.6 seconds and has a top speed of over 193 mph. The car has adjustable dampers that come with three settings and while cruising around the city, the car is supple and absorbent, rounding off the worst bumps with aplomb.
