Cristiano Ronaldo is in a celebratory mood as he shows off his brand-new Bugatti Chiron. The hypercar is beyond doubt the crown jewel of the Real Madrid player’s exotic car collection now.
He scored a brace in Real Madrid’s 3-1 win over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League. But we’d say he pulled off a hat-trick, because the soccer player has just got himself a brand-new Bugatti Chiron. Cristiano Ronaldo shared a short clip and an image of his new prized possession on Instagram and yes, the car looks absolutely gorgeous to behold.
While he hasn’t posted any information on the level of personalization that was done to this particular Chiron, eagle-eyed readers will see that the seat headrests have “CR7” embedded on them. Discreet, elegant and classy touch. Hopefully, we’ll get to know more about other custom additions to this car over the course of time.
The video shows Cristiano Ronaldo driving the hypercar on his driveway, with his son in the passenger seat. He pulls over to the side of the camera guy and greets his fans in Portuguese before driving off. Once again, the Chiron lets out its signature engine note in all its earth-shattering glory to satisfy the needs of the many.
Looks like Cristiano Ronaldo made the call after all. Watch the “Test and approved by a champion” video below to connect the dots.

The 32-year old footballer owns a jaw-dropping collection of supercars and hypercars and often shares pictures of him with the exotics via his Instagram page. At $3 million, the 1,500 hp, 1,180lb-ft Bugatti Chiron is one of the most expensive cars in his underground garage. The Chiron had recently acquired the 0-249-0 mph world record too.
Once you start personalizing the hypercar, that price is only going to head north. Being a car guy and an avid collector, Cristiano Ronaldo must’ve opted for a lot more than just the “CR7” work on the headrests. Which means this piece must’ve cost him a lot more than the previously-mentioned sum.
Bugatti had shot a promor video with Cristiano Ronaldo early this year with the title “”Test and approved by a champion”. Bugatti test driver Andy Wallace remarked in that clip that if he soccer star has to call Bugatti if he intends to keep the Chiron after the test drive. Looks like star made the call after all.
