While doing the comparison, we begin to realize the similarities and the differences between the products. That’s why we are comparing footballers to cars, and deciphering which car brands they best represent:
5. Gareth Bale – Bugatti (Veyron and Chiron)
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of Gareth Bale? It’s perhaps the same thing that comes to your mind when thinking about a Bugatti: SPEED. Indeed, the Welsh international initially burst into the scene because of his pace: just like the Buggati Veyron.
However, after his game against Inter Milan, he upgraded from the Veyron to the Bugatti Chiron – quicker, stronger and much more powerful. The Chiron has a larger turbo and injectors when compared to the Veyron – which is what we could say about the internationally acclaimed star that we see at the Bernabeu now, and the younger version of himself that first walked into the Bernabeu.
4. Zlatan Ibrahimovic – Monster truck (Grave Digger)
If I had to choose one model to this man, it would be the Grave Digger – the name is apt, isn’t it? – as it is not only the ultimate Monster Truck but also has a cool badass feel to it. Also, since Ibrahimovic has been personally responsible for digging the graves of many defenders, this seems like the perfect amalgamation that we would all love to see.
3. Radja Nainggolan – Honda Civic
Even though Honda isn’t really a glamorous car; Imagine going out on a drive with your loved one. It is just an aimless drive as you pass through unchartered territories consisting of uneven terrains or slippery roads. However, you are not scared because you know that your car won’t fail you because it is a Honda – the most reliable car in the world.
That is what Radja Nainggolan is – he is Roma’s Mr. Reliable. According to research, Honda is the most reliable car brand as they have a failure rate of 0.29% – something you could say about Radja Nainggolan.
2. Cristiano Ronaldo – Ferrari F12
The car that truly represents him is his Ferrari F12, worth around £200,000 and with a top speed of 340kmph. When it comes to sports cars, the Ferrari F12 is among the very best – something that runs parallel to Cristiano Ronaldo.
The former Manchester United star is one of the greatest player football has ever seen – which is the same case in terms of Ferrari and the world of motor vehicles. The Italian company is highly reputed and their cars are equally coveted by sports car fanatics.
1. Lionel Messi – Rolls Royce Phantom
The Phantom is the most technologically advanced car from the British company and stands unparalleled in vigor among its rivals – just like the Argentine in Barcelona. At £318,120, it might not be the most expensive car in the world, but it is certainly priceless like Lionel Messi is to Barcelona.
And he, too, didn’t cost Barcelona much as he was brought to the academy as a teenager and then went on to surge up to the first team. Imagine if Messi was sold now, how much money would he cost?
But regardless of how much he costs, his importance will always be invaluable. Pretty much what a Rolls Royce would be to anyone who has one.
