20 Cars That Most Athletes Can't Afford

Athletes are known to flaunt their impressive car collections. Just look at LeBron’s car garage that includes a Lamborghini Aventador Roadster, a Mercedes-Benz Maybach 57 S, a Ferrari 458 Spider, a Ferrari 599 and a Bentley Continental GT.

However, there are other cars priced at very high prices that most of these athletes cannot afford. An example is the $8.9 million Bugatti Centodieci. "With the Centodieci, we pay homage to the EB110, which is very much a part of our tradition-steeped history," says Bugatti president Stephan Winkelmann. "With the EB110, Bugatti catapulted itself to the top of the automotive world once again."

Another one is the $8 million Mercedes-Benz Maybach Exelero. Top Speed states, “Just imagine an automobile that combines the elegance and first-class quality of a high-end limousine with the powerful suppleness of a sports coupe. Create a vehicle in your mind’s eye which, with an unladen weight of over 2.66 tons and the dimensions of a small transporter, achieves a maximum speed of over 350 km/h.”

Here are the 20 cars that most athletes can’t afford.

Priced at a massive $13 million, the Rolls-Royce Sweptail is a car most athletes cannot afford. Top Gear states, “Like the grille, the two digits are milled from a block of aluminium and hand-polished. The “highlight” of the exterior though, says Rolls, is the panoramic glass roof. They claim it's “one of the most complex ever seen on a motor car”. It's certainly among the biggest.”

Priced at a massive $3.4 million, the W Motors Lykan Hypersport is a car most athletes cannot afford. Dupont Registry states, “W Motors is likely a brand you’ve never heard of, but there’s a good chance you’ve seen one of its cars before.

Priced at a huge $3.4 million, the Limited Edition Bugatti Veyron by Mansory Vivere is a car most athletes cannot afford. Dupont Registry states, “Only two exist in the world... Aside from its quad turbocharged 8.0-liter W16 engine and unique customization job, what makes this Veyron even more special is that it happens to be the third model that rolled off the production line in 2007.”

Priced at a colossal $3 million, the Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio is a car most athletes cannot afford. Motor 1 states, “The naturally aspirated mill was actually taken from the 458 Speciale with 605 horsepower (445 kilowatts) and 540 Newton-meters (398 pound-feet) of torque on tap.

10 Bugatti Chiron

Priced at a gargantuan $2.9 million, the Bugatti Chiron is a car most athletes cannot afford. Top Gear states, “The Chiron is not a hybrid. Unlike its closest competitors – the McLaren P1, LaFerrari and Porsche 918 – it relies solely on fossil fuels. Its engine is a development of the Veyron’s 8.0-litre quad-turbo W16, its gearbox a strengthened version of the Veyron’s seven-speed twin-clutch, and like the Veyron it deploys its immense power through all four wheels.”

9 Koenigsegg Jesko

Priced at a massive $2.8 million, the Koenigsegg Jesko is a car most athletes cannot afford. Car and Driver states, “The Koenigsegg Jesko is basically the vehicular equivalent of the word absurd, with a combined 1600 horsepower and a claimed top speed of greater than 278 mph.

Auto Express states, “The FXX K produces 540kg of downforce at 125mph, it is the first Ferrari ever with more than 1,000bhp and, perhaps most significantly, it can lap Ferrari's Fiorano track in 1m 14.5secs, compared to 1m 19secs for the LaFerrari.”

7 Aston Martin Valkyrie

2 Milan Red

Priced at a huge $2.3 million, the Milan Red is a car most athletes cannot afford. Top Gear states, “The Milan Red brings a new design idea to the world of hypercars too. Rather than being shaped by a brutal chase for downforce, like the McLaren Senna and Ford GT, or by the sheer artistic madness favoured by Pagani or Apollo, Milan Automotive wanted a hypercar inspired by Austrian falconry.”

1 McLaren Speedtail

Priced at a massive $2.2 million, the McLaren Speedtail is a car most athletes cannot afford. Car and Driver states, “As the spiritual successor to the legendary McLaren F1, the 2020 McLaren Speedtail evokes similar desires with its one-of-a-kind design and out-of-this-world performance. The streamlined speedster is the fastest and most powerful McLaren ever built, and it represents the pinnacle of the company's exotic lineup.”
