Whilst not every professional football player has a sporty car to get from A to B it certainly seems that some status is attached to owning one
To the professional footballer their car is a personal calling card that reflects as much about the owner as it does about the human desire to go really fast on four wheels and affect an emotional response by all around
Here we take a look at some of the best.
10 - Mesut Ozil Ferrari 458 Italia (168k)
The Ferrari 458 was first unveiled in 2009 and became a firm favourite with many football stars with its replacement the 488, unveiled in 2015 likely to become another winner
The 562hp of the 458 has a top speed of 210mph and is capable of 0-100kph (62mph) in a blistering 2.9 seconds! The Ferrari 458 Italia set the Arsenal midfielder back Â£168k.
9 Wayne Rooney - Aston Martin Vanquish (Â£200,000)
This Vanquish sits proudly atop the Aston Martin range and for many the Aston Martin brand is the most desirable in the world
Their cars are undeniably beautiful, classy and attract people who want to make a statement that is more suave and understated, more, well, James Bond.
8 Frank Lampard Ferrari 612 Scaglietti (200k)
This stylish coupe was in production between 2004 and 2011 and pays homage to the 1954 Ferrari 375 MM
The 2-door grand tourer has the sweeping classic lines and character from a bygone era whilst looking bang up to date
The 612 was superseded by the FF 'Ferrari Four'.
7 - Mario Ballotelli Ferrari F12berlinetta (240k)
The outlandish Ballotelli is well known for his love of supercars and this Ferrari was first unveiled in 2012
This incredibly sleek and beautiful machine is faster than the 458, Enzo, 430 Scuderia and 599 GTB with only LaFerrari faster on the Fiorano test circuit accrding to Ferrari reports
With a top speed of 211mph and 730 bhp this beast is not for the faint-hearted.
6 Messi Masserati GranTurismo MC Stradale
Compared to many of the vehicles on this list, this machine is somewhat understated as it has a greater emphasis on combining comfort with speed but it is still at its heart a super sports car
The V8 may lack the raw power of many of the cars on our list but is tuned to deliver 454 hp and a top speed of 188mph
The car therefore has the looks and feel of a GT4 but with supercar tuning.
5 Neymar Jr Audi R8 GT ($256k)
First introduced in 2006 the R8 has become a favourite with professional footballers with its successful race pedigree in the Audi Le Mans Prototype (LMP)
The prototype was a 6-time 24 Hours of Le Mans winner.
4 El Hadji Diouf Mercedea-Benz SLR McLaren Chrome - Â£420k
The 2-door roadster was jointly developed and sold by Mercedes-Benz and McLaren automotive between 2003 and 2010, taking as inspiration the Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR
The powerplant and subsequent numbers of this vehicle are staggering with 617 hp which delivered a top speed of 208mph and 0-100km of 3.1 seconds
Other editions were introduced such as the 722 and Stirling Moss as well as Coupe and and convertible versions
El Hadji Diouf went for a striking chrome finish.
3 - Zlatan Ibrahimovic Porsche 918 Spyder (Â£616,800)
Zlatan has had a number of striking supercars including a Ferrari Enzo but this limited run Porsche 918 Spyder has not only an exceptional price tag but other mind blowing numbers as well
918 cars were produced between 2013-2015 after first being shown as a concept in 2010 and features a high tech V8 hybrid powerplant
The combined output of its engine and electric motors is 887 hp which will take the car to 210mph and 0-100kph in just 2.5 seconds.
2 John Terry 1964 V12 Ferrari 275 GTB in metallic blue (Â£1.5 million)
This classic Ferrari was the first to be fitted with a transaxle and was produced between 1964 and 68
The 3.3L V12 produces between 280-300 hp but its the looks of this coupe that make it so incredibly desirable with one 275 being recently sold for $3.96 million in auction
1 Cristiano Ronaldo La Ferrari (Â£2m)
Ferrari produced 500 of these supercars which like the Porsche 918 and latest McLaren uses a hybrid powerplant to recover kinetic energy which it stores in batteries to provide additional hp via motors in the same way as the latest F1 engines
Unlike Porsche, Ferrari have opted for a V12 over a V8 which produces a combined output of 950 hp
La Ferrari is capable of 217 mph and 0-100kph of under 3 seconds.
