Ranked as one of the most expensive and fastest cars in the world, Messi’s Pagani isn’t road legal and can only be driven on a track.
Since 1999, Pagani has made motors – and reportedly only 40 of these babies were ever made, which is why it appreciates in price.
Incidentally, Messi’s great rival Ronaldo drove a Pagani Hυayra in a Nike ad once, jokingly crashing it.
