The astronomically expensive cars that you know a footballer will want to buy

Even a rich professional footballer would take a hit when buying a Maybach Exelero - which at £4.7m is the world's most expensive car

Footballers make a lot of money and they love to show everyone just how much, because the more money they have to blow on crap, the more important they must be.

William Gallas splashed the cash on a chrome Mercedes McClaren and El Hadji Diouf’s gold-plated Cadillac Escalade was cute.
Jermaine Pennant’s £200k chrome Aston Martin was certainly an ostentatious display of wealth, but if you’re going to fly about in a status symbol, then nothing says how rich and important you are than one of these painfully expensive cars which you’ve probably never even heard of…

5. Aston Martin One-77 – £1.06m
A more readily recognisable name thanks to the James Bond series, there is nothing more classy than an Aston Martin and so it is arguably less suitable for a footballer.
Nonetheless, there are only 77 of these beautiful machines and whilst it’s fast, the One-77 is a more all-encompassing experience. Definitely the best looking entry on this list.

4. Koenigsegg CCXR – £1.3m
A product of Swedish company Koenigsegg, the CCXR comes in at almost £400k more than it’s younger brother.
In March 2009 the CCXR was chosen by Forbes as one of the ten most beautiful cars in history and it’s easy to see why.
Sporting a 1018 horsepower engine, the CCXR can handle whatever surface you throw at it and is a worthy addition to any collection.

3. Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse – £1.47m
The Bugatti Veyron is known all over the world and it is the fastest road car ever built.
You will have to pay for the privilege, but it hits 62mph in 2.6 seconds. Less than 40 are made a year and even a professional footballer would take a hit when buying one of these.

2. Lykan Hypersport – £2m
Believe it or not, the Lykan Hypersport is produced by a Lebanese manufacturer, W Motors, and is the first supercar to be produced in the Middle East.
Not only can it hit 60mph in 2.8 seconds, but it is also a luxurious way to get around thanks to the jewels built in to the interior and a holographic display.
It is the third most expensive car in the world…

1. Maybach Exelero – £4.7m
We arrive at the most expensive car in the world, one which looks straight out of a gangster movie set in the future.
At nearly £5m and with only 23 in existence, you’d expect to be getting a lot for your money and the Exelero certainly delivers.
It is a 4-seater with 700bph, maxing out at 218mph and reaches 60 in 4.4 seconds.
Put simply, it is the pinnacle of auto-mobile luxury.
