ORa simple photograph of Cristiano Ronaldo With a car he has unleashed rumors in the world of football. The Portuguese striker has uploaded to his account Instagram a posed with his Rolls-Royce Ghost, one of the jewels of his luxury car collection, but the car seems to be the least of it. What has triggered speculation is the message that accompanies the photo: “Decision day” (“Decision day” in Spanish). And next to these two words, a pensive face emoji to generate more buzz.
Cristiano to PSG and Mbapp to Madrid?
Italian, French and Portuguese media assure that the soccer player’s key message could mean his possible goodbye to Juventus de Turn, a team with which he has not yet renewed the contract. Your next destination could be Paris Saint-Germain, where he will meet his former partner Sergio Ramos. In fact, newspapers like ‘Corriere dello Sport’ point to a possible barter between Juve and PSG: Cristiano to PSG and Mauro Icardi to Juventus. The Portuguese will be chosen by the French club to replace Kylian mbapp, which could end in the Real Madrid this same summer, according to the Italian newspaper.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s Rolls-Royce
But at MARCA CARS we are more concerned if Cristiano Ronaldo is thinking about change car (one of them) or in acquire a new model to expand your impressive car collection. The blue suit with jacket and shorts It has also been widely commented on social networks, but it is not up to us to talk about Cristiano’s style.
The portuguese owns a Rolls-Royce Ghost since at least November 2014, when he was seen driving the luxurious saloon to attend a Real Madrid training session at the Ciudad Deportiva de Valdebebas. Since then has posed several times on Instagram with the ‘smallest’ saloon of the British brand, a vehicle that measures more than five meters long and is priced at more than 300,000 euros.
But Cristiano’s first Rolls-Royce Ghost was White and grey, while the one you just taught on Instagram is black and gray. It is not clear whether the Portuguese has painted his old Ghost in another color or, on the contrary, has acquired a new vehicle for his collection. Precisely, the British brand has just launched the second generation of the Ghost, so the Portuguese could be thinking of acquiring a copy of the new model, driven by a 6.75-liter V12 petrol engine that develops a power of 571 hp and a maximum pair of 850 Nm.
With all-wheel drive and steering, the Ghost is the access model and more ‘discreet’ of the British brand. It is almost half a meter shorter than the Phantom, the largest saloon in the range and one of the most luxurious cars in the world. Both models have the same engine as the Cullinam, the first SUV manufactured by Rolls-Royce and of which Cristiano also has a unit since at least March 2019, when I first showed it on Instagram. The Portuguese has a weakness for the cars of the Spirit of Ecstasy, the small sculpture that adorns the hood of cars manufactured by Rolls-Royce.
But in addition to several Rolls-Royces, Cristiano owns an impressive collection of cars in which there are several Ferrari (599 GTO, 599 GTB Fiorano and F12 tdf), two Bugatti (Chiron and Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse), two Mclaren (Senna and MP4-12C), a Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4, two Mercedes-AMG (S 65 Coup and GLE 63 S Coup), a Porsche 911 Turbo S (991), a Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible and a Range rover Sport SVR, among other models.
