Lionel Messi has the most valuable car collection in the world of sports
He owns 13 cars, including a rare 1957 Ferrari 335 S Spider Scaglietti
World class athletes are often criticized for their questionable taste when it comes to cars but Lionel Messi seems to know what he’s doing as his car collection includes a magnificent 1957 Ferrari 335 S Spider Scaglietti.
ManySpins.com - a website that specializes in online games and slots - has conducted a research to find out who has the most expensive car collection in the world of sports and PSG star Messi took the number 1 spot.
His car collection currently comprises 13 cars, with a total value of £28,169,068, and tops the list ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo in second place (19 vehicles, £18million), with F1 champion Lewis Hamilton in third place, with nine cars worth £12.4million. Boxer Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez and Messi's club team-mate Neymar completed the top five, while Conor McGregor placed in ninth despite being the highest paid athlete.
Messi’s car collection is worth in excess of £28 chiefly because his 1957 Ferrari 355 S alone is worth around £23-24m. He purchased it in 2016 for €28m (£22m at the time.)
He also owns a F430 Spider, a couple of Range Rovers, a Pagani Zonda Roadster, a Dodge Charger and, you’re gonna love this, a Toyota Prius, which he received as a gift when Barcelona beat Santos at the 2011 Club World Cup in Yokohama, Japan.
