FORMER Real Madrid icon Cristiano Ronaldo has unveiled an addition to his extensive car collection – an €850,000 tribute to Ayrton Senna.
The Portuguese footballer has been pictured posing outside his Turin home beside the exclusive Mclaren Senna.
Built by McLaren as a tribute to the legendary Formula 1 racing driver Senna, Ronaldo’s new car is one of only 500 ever made.
Ronaldo posted an image of the Mclaren on Instagram and treated fans to a video of the car outside his villa with the caption ‘enjoy.’
Designed for competition, the powerful Senna has 800 horsepower, thanks to a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 engine, and can accelerate from 0 to 100 in 2.8 seconds.
Senna brought much success to McLaren between 1988 and 1993, winning three Formula 1 World Driver Championships and 35 Grand Prix races.
Ronaldo paid out €850,000 for the tribute supercar which is a bargain considering his annual salary amounts to around €69 million.
It comes as the legendary forward was rumoured to have paid €11 million for the one of a kind ‘La Voiture Noire’ Bugatti prototype.
The unique car, with a top speed of 260 mph, was styled after the iconic Bugatti Type 57 SC Atlantic of the 1930s
The Ballon d’Or winner already has a fleet of luxury cars including a Rolls-Royce Phantom, a Bentley Continental and an Aston Martin DB9.
