Professional soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo has a very impressive car collection, which was expanded last week with the addition of the Brabus G V12 900. The Juventus forward already owns a boatload of super and luxury cars, including among others, two Bugattis, two Lamborghini Aventadors, a Rolls Royce Cullinan, a Chevy Camaro SS, a Ferrari F12 TDF and a McLaren Senna.
Back to his latest acquisition, the tuned Mercedes-Benz G-Class is limited to just 10 examples worldwide, costs the equivalent of roughly $670,000 and was gifted to him on his 35th birthday, February 5, by his girlfriend, Spanish model Georgina Rodriguez.
The young woman shared a short video with her 16.2 million Instagram followers that shows Ronaldo getting close to his new ride, which was viewed almost 9.5 million times since posting, at the time of writing. The Portuguese striker, whose under contract with Juventus Torino, thanked everyone present, as they were singing ‘Happy Birthday’.
About the Brabus G V12 900
Presented at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Brabus G V12 900 is based on the new-gen G-Class and features a V12, sourced from the Mercedes-Benz S600 L, whose capacity was increased from 6.0 to 6.3 liters. It develops a jaw-dropping 900 PS (887 HP / 662 kW) and 1,500 Nm (1,106 lb-ft) of torque, but in order to make it feasible in the long run, peak torque was limited to 1,200 Nm (885 lb-ft).
In spite of the small shed aerodynamics and weight, the potent 4×4 is capable of accelerating to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.8 seconds and reach a 280 km/h (174 mph) top speed. The stock AMG G63, which packs a 585 PS (577 HP / 430 kW) and 850 Nm (627 lb-ft) of torque 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, does the 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 4.5 seconds and maxes out at 220 km/h (137 mph).
