Soccer players are renowned for spending big on lavish items and Mauro Icardi isn’t any different.
The Argentine is known for his exquisite car taste, boasting a collection that includes Lamborghinis and Bentleys.
But his latest addition is undoubtedly the crowning jewel of his automotive treasure.
The striker celebrated his remarkable start to the season in Turkey by making a lavish purchase – a rare Rolls-Royce model.
This summer, Icardi secured a permanent transfer to Galatasaray after a loan stint with PSG last season.
He’s been in exceptional form, netting four goals in just three league games, so the 30-year-old has reportedly decided to indulge himself.
Apparently, the Argentinian star recently splurged a whopping $25 million on a rare Rolls-Royce Boat Tail.
If true, it’s a big deal for a number of reasons.
Firstly, the Rolls-Royce Boat Tail is the. second most expensive new car in the world after the new Rolls-Royce Droptail, which has a $31.8 million price tag.
Secondly, only three Boat Tails exist worldwide, with billionaire rapper Jay-Z and pop sensation Beyonce possessing two of them.
Thirdly, the Boat Tail is believed by many to be the most luxurious car on the planet.
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 tauilored for champagne bottles.
Under the hood, the Rolls-Royce Boat Tail is powered by a 6.75-liter twin-turbo V12 engine which packs nearly 600 horspower.
