Ronaldo, Mayweather own supercars but not richest collection in sport

first_img36Floyd Mayweather likes his cars in white in Las Vegas Floyd Mayweather sits atop his £3.6 million Koenigsegg Trevita The most expensive in his garage was an exceedingly rare Koenigsegg Trevita. He bought the car for £2.7m but had to sell it for £2m at a car auction in California in August to pay a tax bill. However he still owns several Rolls-Royce’s, Ferarri’s and Bugatti’s. Shaquille O’Neal must struggle to get in his Lamborghini Mario Balotelli rides in his Maserati GranTurismo ‘Super Mario’ did unload his camo Bentley to teammate Urby Emmanuel in 2013. Urby decided to pull off the wrap and return it to its original look. Spoilsport! Estimated value: £1m 13. Zlatan Ibrahimovic However, his favourite baby is his custom-wrapped Nike floral print Lamborghini Aventador, which is worth a cool £500k. Chump change for some, but nothing for a man who earns a whopping £48m a year. Estimated value: £4.5m 6. John Cena Justin Verlander also owns a Audi R8 and Ferrari 488 The All-Star owns motors including, Maserati Gran Turismo (£91,690k), a Lamborghini Aventador Roadster (£288,840), a Ferrari 458 Italia (£250k), a Ferrari California (£154,314k), an Aston Martin DBS (£198k). He also has a fondness for Mercedes Benz, owning 3 separate models of the famed German manufacturer. Estimated value: £3.8m 7. LeBron James Jenson Button sold his Bugatti Veyron at an auction for £900k But he also owns some less sexy rides including a Honda S600 (£30k),  an 1964 Ford Anglia (£20k) and even a 1956 VW Campervan (£40k). He sold his Bugatti at an auction for £900k back in 2009, presumably to make room for more cars in his garage. Estimated value: £6m 3. Cristiano Ronaldo Michael Jordan loves his classic Corvette However, over the years he has released Aston Martins, Mercedes and a Bentley from his multiple garages. We’re sure he’s not feeling the affects of retirement with his substantial clothing and restaurant enterprises though. Estimated value: £1.8m 11. Lewis Hamilton Only the best will do for Zlatan Ibrahimovic who owns a Ferrari supercar Zlatan loves Ferraris above all, and has a large collection. However he is also sponsored by Volvo, so he is often seen driving the Swedish motor instead. His collection includes a bright red Ferrari Enzo valued at £600k and an exclusive Porsche 918 Spyder worth £700k. Lewis Hamilton also owns a Pagani Zonda He owns a Pagani Zonda (£1.5m), SLS Mercedes (£165k), Shelby GT500(£50K) and his favourite car is the 1967 472 Cobra worth around £75k. We add, he has two of those. Estimated value: £2.315m 10. Shaquille O’Neill However, his most extravagant purchase was a 458 Italia which cost him around £250k. He uses it as a everyday car too, alongside a Smart car! Estimated value: £3.5m 9. David Beckham Samuel Eto’o collected his Bugatti Veyron when he was at Chelsea The former Barcelona striker’s most valuable motors are a Bugatti Veyron (£1.75m), Aston Martin One-77 (£1.3m) and a rare Porsche Gambella Mirage (£1m). He also owns a a Maybach Xenatec (£696k), an Aston Martin V12 Zagato (£396k), a Hummer H2 (£30k) and a Ferrari 599 Fiorano (£300k). Estimated value: £5.5m 4. Jenson Button Over the years Becks also added a Bentley Mulsanne (£229,360), a Ferrari 612 Scaglietti (£75k), a Range Rover Evoque (£78k) and a Hummer H2 (£30k). Not content there, the former Man United star has an extensive motorbike collection. 36Jenson Button steps out of his McLaren P1, which set him back over £1mCredit: Xposure Button, 37, is the highest placed Brit on the list. The former F1 driver has a reported personal wealth of more than £100m and has spent a sizeable chunk on vehicles. His large and quirky collection has included supercars like a Bugatti Veyron (£1.1m), a McLaren P1 (£1.9m) and several Ferrari’s including an Enzo valued at £1m. Samuel Eto’o has the best car collection of any footballer Once upon a time, Eto’o was highest paid footballer in the world, earning around £18.5 million a year while at Anzhi in Russia in 2011. That allowed the Cameroonian legend to splash his hard-earned roubles on fast cars, and he’s the highest-placed footballer on this list. In Las Vegas his Bugatti is white Cristiano Ronaldo likes a car with pace which is why he chooses Ferrari The 5-time Balon d’Or winner lives a life of luxury on superstar wages at Juventus, plus mega endorsement deals with fashion houses all over the world. He needs a car collection fit for a king, and his garages in Madrid are certainly impressive. John Cena shows off his 1970 Plymouth SuperBird King LeBron James has his own personalised Lamborghini Aventador He may not be the NBA’s current MVP, but his car collection is definitely one of the most valuable. Not just earning in basketball, LeBron’s making a mint in Hollywood — so driving a nice set of wheels around LA during the off-season is imperative. Floyd Mayweather has one of the biggest car collections in the world Floyd ‘Money Man’ Mayweather boasts one of the largest supercar collections in the world. The 40-year-old unbeaten boxer has so many, he keeps a collection of white cars in Miami, and a fleet of black-painted cars in Las Vegas. Super Mario Balotelli stands by his camouflage Bentley Balotelli loves to show his flamboyant personality with his stunning motors. During his time in England with Manchester City and Liverpool, he was regularly spotted parking his outlandish Bentley Continental GT in amazing camouflage – worth £160k. This year he has added to the collection, which now includes a Lamborghini Gallardo worth £160k, a Maserati GranTuriso (£100k), an Audi R8 V10 (£105k), a Ferrari 458 Spider (£170k), a Ferrari F12 Berlinetta (£240k) and a Range Rover Evoque (£40k). 36The amazing new Bugatti will be delivered to customers next yearCredit: Bugatti This new model is believed to be a tribute to the legendary Bugatti EB110 – Centodieci is Italian for 110. The Centodieci boasts an 8 litre W16 engine, with special models having 1600hp – some 100hp more than the Chiron and, overall, three times the price of that model. It can do 0-62mph in just 2.4 seconds and reach a top speed of 236mph. Estimated value: £16m 2. Floyd Mayweather Cristiano Ronaldo also owns a Bugatti Chiron worth £2.1m Flashy on the pitch, his cars off it are equally as showy. He owns a a Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano (£300k), a Ferrari F430 (£117k), a Ferrari 599 GTO (£335k) and a Lamborghini Aventador (£270k). Add to that a Rolls-Royce Phantom (£360k) and a Bugatti Chiron (£2.1m), and that’s a wealth of motors right there. The Juventus superstar reportedly splurged £8.5million on a limited edition Bugatti Centodieci – of which only 10 have been made. Perhaps it’s not so surprising but wrestling superstar John Cena loves classic American muscle cars. He has more than 25 which he keeps at in a huge garage at his mansion in Tampa, Florida. Most of them are old classics like a 1966 Dodge Hemi Charger (£40k) and a 1970 Plymouth Superbird (£150k). Supercars are the ultimate status symbol. So it’s no surprise that sports superstars love to spend their cash on the very best and latest boys’ toys. Zlatan Ibrahimovic also believes in being economic in his Volvo The Manchester United striker also owns a Lamborghini Gallardo (£160k) and a Maserati GranTuriso (£100k). Estimated value: £1.5m 12. Michael Jordan That’s why he rides a Porsche 911 Turbo S, a Hummer H2, a Ferrari F430 Spider and a Maybach 57S. Floyd Mayweather’s Bugatti Veyron cars proudly displayed Here are the top 15 sports stars ranked by the size and estimated cost of their amazing collections of supercars. 14. Mario Balotelli David Beckham fills up his custom-plated Porsche England legend Becks has amassed a fortune of around £339 million, and his wheels are a fair reflection of his wealth. Goldenballs’ list of motors are a reflection of his status, and he has a Rolls-Royce Phantom (£360k), a Rolls-Royce Ghost (£231,180), a Bentley Continental SuperSport (£275k), and an Audi R8 (£117k). FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 36The Rolls-Royce Phantom would’ve cost £355,000Credit: Xposure In 2015 he tweeted an amazing photo of eight supercars worth £4.5m – including three Bugatti Veyrons each valued at more than £1million – plus his £1.5m private jet. Estimated value: £20m 1. Reggie Jackson LeBron James leans against his Mercedes Maybach Ronaldo is believed to be one of 10 people lucky enough to buy the incredible new Bugatti Centodieci, which costs £8.5m Shaquille O’Neal isn’t too big to ride a Smart car LA Lakers legend Shaq has a fleet of cars that would be enough to open a luxury car taxi service. A giant on the court, the 7-footer needs a big car, so it’s no surprise he opts for bigger, jeep-like vehicles. He’s amassed a huge collection including a Lamborghini Gallardo (£105k), a Mercedes-Benz S Class (£70k), a Cadillac DTS (£35K) and a Jeep Wrangler (£32K). There’s also a Ford Expedition (£40k), a Lincoln Continental (£35k), a Hummer H2 (£30k), a Cadillac Escalade (£63), as well as a 2001 Chevrolet G1500 van (£35k). 36NBA legend Michael Jordan released his Aston Martin’s from his extensive car collectionCredit: Youtube – TMZ The greatest basketball player of all time is worth over a billion dollars, and he hasn’t cut corners with his car collection either. Jordan owns a Chevrolet C4 Corvette (£37k), a Ferrari 512 TR (£125k), a Porsche 911 (£100k), a Toyota Land Cruiser (£38k) and a Ferrari 599 GBT Fiorano (£300k). Loading… But the motors in Mayweather’s LA garage are black Lewis Hamilton poses with his 1966 Shelby 427 Cobra Being a racing driver and earning millions per year, you’d think Lewis would be higher up the list. However, perhaps being banned from driving in France in 2007 slowed him down off the circuit. But he’s still got a very pretty set of motors that may need dusting off in his garage. Mayweather has a branded Rolls-Royce Phantom John Cena’s car collection also boasts a 6.2 L,650 Hp Corvette ZR1 He also boasts a yellow limited edition Ford Mustang (£50k) and a Corvette ZR1 valued at £100k which he had customised into the InCENArator. Estimated value: £5m 5. Samuel Eto’o Reggie Jackson is the sportsman with the biggest car collection in the world American baseball legend – who was nicknamed Mr October – boasted a huge collection of around 100 classic cars but a massive fire in 2013 destroyed 35 of them, worth £2m. Jackson, 73, however still has a huge collection of American classics, mostly Chevrolets, around 50 or so, and regularly attends auctions to buy more. Reggie Jackson’s car collection is estimated to be worth around £50m Read Also: Zidane impressed by Hazard’s physique after surgery He has 25 at his home in Seaside, California, six at another home in Carmel, and 25 at a hangar at Monterey airport. One car in his collection, a Ferrari 275 GTB/4, is said to be worth around £20m. It makes him our number one on this list. Estimated value: £50m David Beckham takes a cruise in his Porsche 911 Incidentally, Becks’ love for Porsche has also extended to collecting classic models like a Steve McQueen-inspired 911. Estimated value: £3.7m 8. Justin Verlander Justin Verlander boasts an impressive collection of fast cars He’s one of Major League Baseball’s biggest stars, and he recently bagged himself a superstar wife in Kate Upton. The Houston Astros pitcher also has taste when it comes to cars, and he’s amassed an astonishing garage that puts him very high up our list.

Alexander: Mike Trout, Cody Bellinger help SoCal corner the market on MVPs

first_imgFor what it’s worth, it’s the 12th time that players from the same market have won MVP awards in the same season. The Dodgers have been involved in six, but four of them involved Brooklyn and the Yankees.The Trout/Kershaw combination in 2014 spawned a billboard, and an accompanying social media competition, before the following year’s spring training Freeway Series. The slogan: “Is Your MVP Red Or Blue?”(Also for what it’s worth, Trout is 2 for 13 lifetime against Kershaw. Both of his hits came during that 2014 season.)There won’t be that kind of head-to-head when Trout and Bellinger share the field next season. But it will be absolutely worth watching. They might want to start working on the billboard design now.“With the Dodgers, obviously, it’s always a battle when we go up to L.A. and when they come to us,” Trout said, adding: “It’s pretty cool to bring both (MVP) trophies back to Southern California.”There’s one Dodgers-Angels event that would be even better, and it would take place in October. But let’s hold off on that wishful thinking for a while, at least until the Angels assemble the type of team that Trout deserves around [email protected]@Jim_Alexander on TwitterAt 28 years old, Mike Trout is the second youngest player to win 3 MVP awards. The only player to do it a younger age is Stan Musial, who won his 3rd at age 27. pic.twitter.com/MGMQvwF7DI— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) November 15, 2019 Yes, we still have no recent World Series championship banners here, and the search goes on for the cheat code to October.(Then again, maybe we should rephrase that in honor of the Houston Astros.)But Thursday afternoon’s Most Valuable Player announcements, honoring the Angels’ Mike Trout and the Dodgers’ Cody Bellinger, offered a reminder: Southern California baseball fans are blessed. We in this region are treated to individual brilliance on a nightly basis.Trout again reigns as American League MVP, and I’m not sure what’s more striking: That he’s only the sixth three-time winner in the history of the AL award, that since 2012 he’s finished below second only once, that the only guy with more MVP plaques is Barry Bonds with seven … or that in all this time, Trout has participated in one postseason series. Angels fail to take series in Oakland, lose in 10 innings Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone [email protected]’s career is off to a pretty good start. pic.twitter.com/CBMZ8qS7Sw— MLB Stats (@MLBStats) November 15, 2019 [email protected]_Bellinger is the 1st @Dodgers player to win Rookie of the Year & MVP since the team moved to Los Angeles. pic.twitter.com/naNdVEUpbu— MLB Stats (@MLBStats) November 15, 2019 Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error He confirmed Thursday, by the way, that he will be as active as the front office needs him to be in recruiting free agents (and if GM Billy Eppler is smart, he’ll have Trout lobbing a call to free agent pitcher Gerrit Cole ASAP).Trout can, if he wishes, encapsulate his pitch in this sentence from Thursday’s conference call: “I wouldn’t have signed the (12-year, $426.5 million) extension if I didn’t think we were going in the right direction.”Trout won this MVP despite not playing after Sept. 7, requiring surgery on his right foot; he verified that he expects to be 100 percent for spring training. But ask yourself how many more games the 72-90 Angels might have lost without him? His bWAR was 8.3, but double digits might be a more reasonable estimate.And he addressed the question that I’m sure some voters and more fans ask: How can you be Most Valuable if your team finishes fourth in the five-team AL West?“I come in every year to try to be the best,” he said. “At the end of the year, if I’m in the conversation, that means I worked hard and had a good year. Obviously, people say you need to make the playoffs. I’m doing everything I can to try to help the team win. … I let other people decide this. I go out there and just put up the best numbers I can.” How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Cody Bellinger has won the MVP, Rookie of the Year award and a Gold Glove, and he’s just 24. He’s the 4th player to collect all 3 awards before turning 25, along with Johnny Bench, Fred Lynn and Dustin Pedroia. pic.twitter.com/yZilAcXYwb— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) November 15, 2019 Mike Trout has won the third MVP award of his career.

Silver Slugger. MVP.What a year for @Cody_Bellinger. pic.twitter.com/s2elv7I64R— MLB (@MLB) November 15, 2019 Meanwhile, up the 5 Freeway, Bellinger’s reinvention in 2019 won him the National League award. And the difference between Bellinger and the Milwaukee Brewers’ Christian Yelich might have been summed up in something that I said at midsummer, but something that was far from an original thought: Wherever Bellinger played – center field, right field, first base – he was the Dodgers’ best defensive player.“I definitely think that helped,” he said on the MLB Network’s awards show. “I don’t know exactly what goes into the votes, but I’m glad that I had the opportunity to show off what I can do this year out there, for sure.”This awards haul for our region is not unprecedented. Trout shared the SoCal spotlight when he won the award for the first time in 2014, because some guy named Clayton Kershaw went 21-3 with a 1.77 ERA and added the NL MVP to his third Cy Young Award.That was five years ago, and it is a reminder that nothing is guaranteed, given the process of reinvention Kershaw has faced the last few years. He was then 26. Trout is 28.Bellinger is 24. He’s going to be a factor for a while, you’d think.“I’m extremely happy for Bellinger,” Trout said. “He had an incredible year. It seemed like we really couldn’t get him out when we played him. The way he handled his adjustment made it pretty special. … I talk to Dino (Ebel) a little bit, and he says a lot of great things about him.”Ebel, of course, was on Mike Scioscia’s Angels coaching staff for 12 seasons, then moved over to Dave Roberts’ staff with the Dodgers last year. He, too, has been pretty privileged.“The American League (announcement) was after us,” Bellinger said during his conference call, “and my dad (Clay) said, ‘Dude, you won the same award as Trout, and he’s the best player in the history of the game.’“To even come close to that is amazing. He’s an unbelievable player, and it’s cool playing against him (two series) a year.”Related Articles Angels manager Joe Maddon questions defensive metrics that rate Mike Trout poorly last_img read more

League: the Government believes it is a matter of time the suspension

first_imgAccording to the Federation, “Article 42.3a of the Statutes allows the RFEF to make the decision to suspend the League, but as it is about professional football that is why Thebes has been invited to participate in this Thursday’s meeting with the aim of making it a consensus decision, also in the AFE “. In the Superior Council of Sports they believe that the best thing “is that there is consensus, but in any case it will be what the Ministry of Health says.”Several clubs and soccer players requested yesterday the suspension of the next two days instead of their celebration behind closed doors, as agreed at this time. Hours later, the AFE asked for the same measure and made a joint note for us to play the matches between Italian and Spanish teams in European competitions. David Aganzo, president of AFE, in statements to Cuatro has assured that “we have sent three letters (to the CSD, LaLiga and the RFEF) showing the concern of our soccer players. The protection is good. Let’s try not to play. “The League justified in a public note that it had decided to hold the next two closed day attending, precisely, to the instructions of the health authorities and the Higher Sports Council.The Federation had already suspended all non-professional competitions in the morning at the state level and invited the territorial federations to adopt the same measure in the tournaments of their competition. The First and Second Division League matches could be suspended after the meeting that will take place tomorrow at 12 noon between the Federation, LaLiga and AFE, once Javier Tebas has accepted Rubiales’ invitation to this important meeting, as reported. The Spanish Football Federation is in favor of the suspension, as reported by the SER, while the employer continues to refer to the recommendations of the health authorities as assured Javier Thebes in statements to Four: “There is no news. I am waiting for Health to see what it says. It is not pressure because I wait to see what Health says. My only pressure is what Health says.” For its part, the Federation has the power to suspend a “force majeure” competition in accordance with article 42.3.a of the FEF Statutes.The Government also bets on the suspension: “It is only a matter of time,” government sources have acknowledged to this newspaper. “We must wait for tomorrow’s meeting between the Federation, LaLiga and the AFE, and then the decision will be taken,” said the same sources.last_img read more

CHAMPIONS! DONEGAL SCHOOL WINS ANTI-RACISIM NATIONAL AWARD

first_imgA Donegal primary school has scooped the top prize at this year’s Show Racism the Red Card Creative Competition.St Eunan’s in Raphoe won a laptop for their school in recognition of their innovative mosaic of signed cards from high profile people, including the Taoiseach Enda Kenny, manager Martin O’Neill and footballer Shay Given.More than 120 schools participated in the competition – which asked pupils to come up with different ways to get across an anti racism message. Co-ordinator of Show Racism the Red Card Garrett Mullen said: “We have an education pack which features top sports stars from the Irish soccer team to hurling players and League of Ireland players.“The idea of the creative competition was to invite schools to do some work to make an impact on the issue of racism and integration within their own community.”The Donegal school got their award from President Michael D Higgins.He told them that diversity was a source of richness whose bounty could only be harvested if everyone worked for the kind of society where each citizen realised their unique potential and contributed meaningfully. The President said racist attitudes could express themselves beyond mere verbal abuse and physical assaults.Racism could emerge “through the policies and services of our institutions when they fail to accommodate and respond appropriately to the needs of a particular section of a population”, he said.The Raphoe school’s 6’x4’ artwork is based on a picture by 5th class student Gemma McGlynn, but the amazing project involved every class member.Among the replies received was a hand-written letter from Sunderland boss Martin O’Neill saying he was delighted to support them, while Shay Given also returned his signed card and sent the class posters and a dvd.Donegal stars Patrick McBrearty and Rory Kavanagh are also among the many who have signed while local clergy, sports club members and parents of the children have also added their names to the impressive artwork.
