A forgotten name in the sports world owns one of the world’s rarest luxury cars worth $1.64m

Samuel Eto’o may be one of the best soccer players you may have forgotten about – and he owns one of the world’s rarest luxury cars.

The four-time Champions League winner played for Chelsea and with Lionel Messi at Barcelona.

But the former striker turned Cameroonian soccer administrator also has a fine taste in cars.

The best car in his fleet, the Aston Martin One-77, is no exception.

Rumored by the brand to be the ‘ultimate’ model, it’s priced at $1.64 Million.

One of the world’s rarest luxury cars, only 77 were ever made.

Under the hood, the 7.3-liter V-12 engine gives the hypercar a top speed of 355 km/h(220 mph).

That means it can go 0-97 km/h (0-60 mph) in a time of just under 3.7 seconds.

Meaning it’s the fastest Aston Martin ever made.

It fuses that advanced technology with automotive art form.

The super rigid, lightweight carbon fibre monocoque is clad in a seamless aluminium bodyshell.

Production of the Aston Martin One-77 was completed in 2012, with all 77 examples sold.

That very same year, Eto’o was spotted with his supercar broken down in Paris.

When videos of the incident leaked, many speculated the problem was caused by an electrical problem.

With one window left up on a rainy day, it made it impossible for the pillarless system to close the doors.

Eto’o’s enviable fleet also includes a Bugatti Veyron.

The oil change of which costs more than most people’s cars.

He also has a Maybach Xenatec and an Aston Martin V12 Zagato parked up which is priced at almost $1m.

And he’s not the only footballer – former or otherwise – to have an impressible car collection.

David Beckham, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo also have some impressive vehicles in their possession.
