Athletes push their bodies to the limit in order to make the big bucks, but just how long does it take for some of the world’s star soccer players to afford a brand new car?
A new, just-for-fun study from CarSpring took a look at how long 10 soccer players need to play in order to afford their cars. Surprisingly, many footballers don’t own extravagant cars, save for a few. Specifically, Axel Witsel, currently on the Chinese Super League only needs to take the field for 15 minutes and 31 seconds to pay for his Cadillac Escalade.
Elsewhere, at the other end of the spectrum, Cristiano Renaldo must take the field for five hours to pay for his Bugatti Veyron. That shows just how much these guys are paid—an extravagant salary for sure.
Then there’s Phil Jagielka, who happens to own a rare Vauxhall Ampera, the brand’s version of the Chevrolet Volt. It’s rare, but not expensive. However, he has to play 46 minutes to afford the car.
What’s the most popular vehicle among footballers or soccer players? A Range Rover Sport. Some players take 22 hours to pay off the popular SUV, while some take just 53 minutes.
Lifestyles of the rich and the famous; it must be nice.
