Cristiano Ronaldo has been caught on camera in his new Ferrari, with onlookers commenting that it looks like a ‘spaceship’.

The Portuguese national was spotted driving around the streets of Lisbon in the super-exclusive Ferrari supercar.

He arrived at the Four Seasons Hotel in the heart of the capital city on Tuesday, 26 March, before handing the keys to the valet.

The video, shared on Instagram by, shows him en route to join his teammates for the game against Slovenia after the star missed their match against Sweden while on vacation.

The car in question was a brand-new, exclusive – and über-expensive – Ferrari Daytona SP3, a supercar that only adds to his already impressive car collection.

Ronaldo has a fleet that is reportedly worth $18 million.

Earlier this year, he acquired a new Ferrari Purosangue – the brand’s first SUV.

He is also one of the few people in the world to own a limited edition Ferrari Monza SP.

This latest Ronaldo runabout is one of only 599 that the Maranello-based brand is building for the global market – and, sorry, they’re all already taken.

The soccer star was also credited with the ownership of the one-of-one Bugatti La Voiture Noire, a Veyron, a Chiron, and a Centodieci.

That’s alongside a Mercedes-AMG G 63 tuned by Brabus, a McLaren Senna, a Rolls-Royce Phantom, a Cullinan, an Aston Martin DBS Superleggera, and it’s a list he’s constantly adding to.

His Daytona SP3 is part of Ferrari’s Icona Series alongside the Monza SP1 and SP2.

The SP3 is the first street-legal Ferrari with a mid-mounted 12-cylinder engine, with no electrification since the Ferrari Enzo back in 2002.

In fact, it’s Ferrari’s most powerful engine.

The naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V8 boasts a 829 horsepower (840 metric horsepower) and 514 pound-feet (697 Newton-meters) of torque.

This is sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

 It has a 0-97 km/h (0-60 mph) of just 2.85 seconds and does 0-200 kph (0-124 mph) in a mere 7.4 seconds.

Its speed maxes out at 340 km/h (211 mph).

The expensive model doesn’t even make a dent in Ronaldo’s wallet, as he’s on $200 million per year at Al-Nassr in the Saudi Pro League.

Let’s break that down slightly.

Ronaldo makes $1.66 million per month or $548,000 per day, $22,831 per hour, or $380 per minute.

Not bad work, if you can get it.
