EURO 2016 title gets Cristiano Ronaldo all worked up to buy Bugatti Veyron image

The well known soccer star – famous for the magic on the field and utterly hilarious hair commercials off it – has decided to celebrate in style the Portugal leadership on the European continent.

Following the win over France of the Euro 2016 soccer championship, Portugal’s star player Cristiano Ronaldo has decided to throw some money on a new hypercar – a Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse. We say he made a good choice, but just can’t forgive him for paying $1.9 million or more for a used car (after all, Veyron’s production has ceased) and not waiting for the new king of the road – the Chiron. We reckon it’s capable of more than 255 miles per hour, but the Veyron is so yesterday’s news – given the Chiron is going to be soon put to the test in a bid to post a new world speed record for production cars.

Anyways, we may remember Ronaldo had a bitter sweet taste of the 1-0 victory over France because he sustained an injury and had to be taken off the field – but we also remember he’s a car aficionado. We heard rumors his collection includes a Ferrari, Lamborghini, Bentley and many more. This dark blue Veyron seems to be the Vitesse version, packing 1,200 horsepower from an 8.0-liter W16 engine and going to 62 mph in just 2.6 seconds.
