Ronaldo’s latest purchase again follows in the footsteps of United’s previous star number 7 – David Beckham. When former England captain Beckham was at Old Traffordhe bought himself an Aston Martin DB7 - and aptly chose the registration plate ‘DB7’ and Beckham – who has owned some of the world’s most exclusive cars – recently got his hands on a £350,000 Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe.
Ronaldo has followed suit, recently ordering a Phantom Drophead Coupe through luxury dealer Liquid 45. The plate won’t be going on his convertible Rolls-Royce, but on his Bentley Continental GTC, according to The Sun newspaper.
Despite being aged just 23, multi-millionaire superstar Ronaldo is fast gaining a reputation for being one of football’s biggest petrolheads. Over the past few years, the £130,000-a-week winger has owned a Porsche Cayenne, Porsche 911 convertible, Ferrari F430, Audi R8 and BMW M6 alongside his Bentley. It’s also believed Ronaldo is on the waiting list for an £830,000 Bugatti Veyron after being impressed with the car's performance when he raced one for a Nike commercial.
While an enormous amount of money, the £150,000 paid for the plate ‘CR7’ is significantly less than the world record £7 million a billionaire from the Middle-east paid for the plate ‘1’ and Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has also been involved, splashing out £285,000 for the plate VIP 1.
