For Ronaldo the price is, however, manageable.

The car is a tribute to a former Bugatti model from the late 1930s.

The new edition was built on the occasion of the 110th anniversary of the original French automobile company.

The supercar, like its predecessor “Chiron”, is said to have 1500 hp under the hood and can reach a top speed of 420 km/h.

However, Ronaldo will have to be patient until the first drive: The sports car is not finished yet, with minor details still needing to be changed on the prototype.

The Portuguese star will be allowed to drive it from 2021.
