Juventus and Portugal Cristiano Ronaldo, who has a serious collection of cars stashed at his palatial house home in Italy, has purchased €8 million Bugatti Centodieci to mark his 36th birthday.

Centodieci can go from 0-100 km/h in 2.4 seconds. Ronaldo, a regular customer of Bugatti vehicles, has purchased the Veyron, a Chiron and a La Voiture Noire — with the latter apparently setting him back a whopping $18 million last year, according to Sports Bible He also owns a Ferrari F430, the Phantom Rolls-Royce, a Lamborghini Aventador and the iconic Maserati GranCabrio.

The Bentley Continental GTC is another beauty in Ronaldo's collection and the McLaren Senna — which he bought for a reported £750,000 in July - is one of his more recent purchases.

His other half Georgina Rodriguez also surprised him with a £600,000 Mercedes G Wagon for his 35th birthday, but the Bugatti Centodieci arguably beats them all.

It is believed only 10 units of the Centodieci will be produced. In fact, all 10 have already been sold, according to reports, but they will have to wait until 2022 to get their hands on it as Bugatti only started production a few weeks ago.
