Aubameyang owns the Premier League’s most expensive car

FOOTBALLERS love to spend their cash on some of the most eye-catching motors.

Premier League stars are often snapped cruising to training and games in the latest Lamborghinis, Ferraris and Bentleys.

But a recent breakdown by Fixter has revealed which of the country’s football elite have spent the most on a new set of wheels.

From Paul Pogba to Dele Alli, these superstars are certainly petrol heads of the highest order.

Ferrari LaFerrari – £1.15million

The Ferrari LaFerrari is one of the most exclusive supercars on the market, with just 499 models ever produced.

But that didn’t stop Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Tottenham’s Heung-Min Son from getting behind the wheel of their very own model.

The stunning motor is the most powerful street-legal supercar produced by the Italian manufacturer, capable of a top speed of 217mph and going from 0 to 62mph in under three seconds.

Aubameyang would only need to be on the pitch for six hours and 18 minutes to pay off the Ferrari based on his massive salary, while Son would require nine hours’ playing time.

Rolls Royce Phantom – £360,000

The Rolls Royce Phantom has long been a popular choice with football stars, and for good reason.

Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino forked out around £360,000 for the luxury edition, while 23-year-old midfielder Dele Alli is often seen behind the wheel of the stunning car.

The Phantom was engineered to be one of the most comfortable and refined vehicles on the market.

Its 6.75-litre V12 engine under the bonnet means it has plenty of power and can accelerate from 0 to 62mph in 5.3 seconds.Dele Alli is often photographed behind the wheel of his Rolls Royce

Rolls Royce Dawn – £275,000

Michy Batshuayi is not only turning heads with his exciting play at Chelsea, but also off the pitch in his Rolls Royce Dawn.

The classy model is the British manufacturer’s most extravagant convertible and doesn’t come cheap with a price tag of £275,000.

But after signing a five-year, £23million contract with the Blues, it would only take him just under three games to pay it off.

Lamborghini Aventador – £271,000

Billed as one of the fastest models money can buy, the Lamborghini Aventador is owned by a string of the country’s wealthiest football players.

The likes of Paul Pogba, Sergio Aguero, Sead Kolasinac and Ederson have all had one proudly parked in their driveway.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang even has a silver-wrapped version in his £3million car collection.

Ferrari 812 Superfast – £253,000

Manchester midfielder Paul Pogba is well-known for his love of fancy cars, often showing his wheels on his way to training.

The French star added the £253,000 Ferrari 812 Superfast to his garage last year, opting for a bright yellow model.

The Superfast is a tad slower than his Aventador, but boast a 0 to 62mph acceleration time of 2.8 seconds.

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren also recently picked up the keys to a Superfast, as it would only take him two games on his massive salary to pay it off.

Other popular models with Premier League footballers include the Rolls Royce Wraith, Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, Rolls Royce Ghost, Bentley GTX and Bentley Supersport.

Limvirak Chea, chief executive at Fixter, said: “Footballers set the trend for so many things such as fashion, hairstyles and homes, but as our passion lies with everything automobile, what we wanted to know most is which brands our favourite players love the most

“It’s fascinating to see how different teams favour different brands, such as Manchester United players and their Range Rovers, or Arsenal players and their Lamborghinis.”
