Recently, while driving his £ 8.8 million Bugatti Centodieci, a car that only he and nine other people in the world own, Cristiano Ronaldo was mobbed by enthusiastic fans in the streets of Madrid.
The Al-Nassr forward, who won four Champions League titles in the city, was surrounded by dozens of supporters, as seen in a video shared on Instagram by @hoymatriculado.
The 38-year-old football star was seen hopping into the driver’s seat of the French car while fans chanted his name.

Despite those chasing him refusing to give up, Ronaldo slowly drove away. He acquired the seventh car in Bugatti’s limited edition 10-car Centodieci series, which is no surprise given his loyalty to the manufacturer.
According to The Sun, the football star also owns a Bugatti Chiron, a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, and several other cars. While rumors circulated that Ronaldo had managed to obtain the only version of the Bugatti Voiture Noire in the world, the former Volkswagen Group chairman Ferdinand Piech ended up possessing the supercar instead.
The scenes in Spain marked the first time Ronaldo had publicly driven the car, which has 1,600 horsepower and a top speed of 240mph.
The forward seems to be finally adapting to life in Saudi Arabia after his sock exit from United last year, netting nine goals in the nine games he’s played for Al-Nassr so far.
The scenes in Spain marked the public debut of Ronaldo driving the Bugatti Centodieci, a car with 1,600 horsepower and a top speed of 240mph. The football star seems to be adjusting well to life in Saudi Arabia following his abrupt departure from Manchester United last year, having already scored nine goals in the nine games he’s played for Al-Nassr.
Although he initially struggled, Ronaldo has hit a rich vein of form for Al-Nassr, and his team is currently in second place in the Saudi Pro League, trailing rivals Al-Ittihad by just one point.
The football star scored two goals for Portugal against Lichtenstein in his most recent international appearance, earning his 197th cap and setting a new world record.
He then added two more goals in a 6-0 victory over Luxembourg on Sunday as Portugal maintained their perfect record in the qualifying campaign for Euro 2024.
