In 2016, the whole of Europe was feverish with the news that the most expensive Ferrari in world history was owned by Lionel Messi. It is known that the Ferrari Scaglietti car costs up to 35 million USD (about 840 billion VND). Messi won it in an auction, surpassing rival Cristiano Ronaldo.

This Scaglietti 335 S is not a regular old Ferrari. It is considered an “invincible” horse, continuously winning the throne in many famous races around the world. The 335 S is based on the 520/B chassis and is based on the 315 S, equipped with a 3.8-liter V12 engine. After that, the car was replaced with a V12 engine, 4.1 liter capacity, producing 400 horsepower to “fight” at the Le Mans 24 Hours racetrack.
In fact, Messi has never “showed off” that he is the owner of the most expensive car in the world. He only hinted that he won the auction with a toy racing car (the character McQueen from the movie Cars) with the caption: “This is my new car.”

The Bugatti Centodieci is considered a birthday gift to celebrate Ronaldo’s 36th birthday. He officially added it to his expensive collection in February 2021.

Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita – 4.8 million USD – Floyd Mayweather
Considered the “jewel” in Mayweather’s car collection, the Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita costs up to 4.8 million USD.
Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita, a supercar with only 2 produced worldwide
The name Trevita in English means “three whites”. The reason the car is so named is also due to the innovative materials used to create it.
Before the Trevita was born, almost all automakers used only black carbon fiber. This car is truly a breakthrough when it is made of bright white diamond-coated carbon fiber, an exclusive material of Koenigsegg. That’s why it has the nickname “diamond weaving car”.
Mayweather’s Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita was the fastest supercar in the world at the time of its launch. Yet for some unknown reason, Mayweather sold it for just $2.6 million not long after splurging on it.
