1.3 billion: Cristiano Ronaldo buys world's most expensive car ever

The Bugatti La Voiture Noire.

Cristiano Ronaldo is rumoured to be the new owner of the one-off Bugatti La Voiture Noire, said to be the most expensive car ever built.

Reports suggest Ronaldo, who is thought to earn around Sh3.4 billion per year, has spent an eye-watering 1.3 billion on the unique Bugatti, which was first presented to the world at the Geneva Motor Show 2019.

The French luxury company built only one of the prototype supercar and it is a tribute to 110th anniversary of the founding of the company.
