Former Inter and PSG player, Mauro Icardi, now at Galatasaray in Turkey, certainly know hows to enjoy the fruits of his talent.

The 30-year-old star regularly updates his Instagram account with pictures of his private jet and his cars.

But his latest purchase may be the wildest ever.

Mauro Icardi, who hails from Rosario, the same Argentinian town where Messi was born, won the Turkish Süper Lig last year.

And in order to celebrate, he reportedly splashed eight figures on one of the world’s most expensive cars.

The car in question is the Rolls-Royce Boat Tail – a rare $25 million unicorn.

Rolls-Royce Boat Tail is the second most expensive new car in the world after the $31.8 million La Rose Noire Droptail, which is also made by Rolls-Royce.

Only three units exist, and one of the other cars is apparently owned by power couple, Beyonce and Jay-Z.

Supercar Blondie’s, Sergi Galiano, actually managed to spot one in Dubai last year.

The magnificent Boat Tail is not just any car, it’s the epitome of excellence.

Custom-built by Rolls-Royce, it’s often referred to as a ‘land yacht’, thanks to its expansive rear deck, reminiscent of a luxury yacht’s stern.

The 19-foot, four-seater convertible comes equipped with a parasol and a telescopic table that automatically extends, ideal for a picturesque picnic for two.

Inside, silvery cutlery and porcelain plates from Christofle elevate the experience, as do the two refrigerators tailored for champagne bottles.

Under the hood, the Rolls-Royce Boat Tail is powered by the brand’s iconic 6.75-liter twin-turbo V12.

However, we suspect the lucky owners of this car won’t be putting a lot a mileage under this V12’s belt.

This, after all, is a collector’s car.
