Ronaldo puts Porsche up for sale
Thursday 18 June 2009
Football star Cristiano Ronaldo's 177mph Porsche 911 convertible is up for sale on Auto Trader.
The blisteringly quick Real Madrid-bound player is selling the explosive Carrera 2 Tiptronic S he bought in 2007 for £69,995. Ronaldo, 24, who this week heard he would face no charges after writing off his Ferrari in Manchester, placed the ad as he prepares for a world record transfer from the Premiership champions to Spain.
Under the bonnet of Ronaldo's black supercar is a 3.8 litre engine with 355bhp allowing acceleration of 0-62mph in just 5.4 seconds.
Auto Trader says the model has upgraded leather seats, sat-nav, 911 Turbo alloy wheels and a tracker. It is thought the Porsche, which has done just 16,000 miles, is the first of many of the star's luxury cars to be cleared out as he prepares for life abroad.
The advert says: “While he is the only registered owner of the car, Ronaldo doesn't currently possess the Porsche, with the supercar being sold by a dealer with the footballer's name signed on the log book.”
