Messi turns 36:the garage of the G.O.A.T

7 Ballon d'Or, 3 Champions Leagues, a World Cup and a palmares that has consigned him to history: Leo Messi turns 36, and he’s ready to face the American adventure with the Inter Miami jersey. Let's find out what the greatest footballer ever drives.
Audi Q7
The ten-year partnership between Audi and Barcelona has resulted in Lionel laying his torso on three of the German manufacturer's cars. Pictured is the Q7 presentation event in collaboration with the footballer's former club. With 340 hp, an S tronic automatic transmission and a super-spacious cabin, with the possibility of folding down the rear seats to further increase boot volume, the Q7 is the perfect solution for packing up and heading off to Florida.
Pagani Zonda Tricolore
7.3 L V12 engine, 6-speed automatic transmission and a price tag of around EUR 2 million. The Zonda Tricolore is one of the fastest and most expensive cars around, the Italian automotive jewel could certainly not be missing from the 'flea''s collection, recalling his love for Italy, which links him to the greatest Argentine of them all, Diego.
Maserati Granturismo MC StradaleThis model entered Leo's garage in 2012 and left five years later, in 2017, after having covered just 46 thousand kilometres for the modest sum of €119,900. Not exactly the bargain of a lifetime for the man who bought it, considering that a model in the same condition and with the same kilometres comes off for 80 thousand. But the fact that it was driven by Messi certainly gives it that extra quid for which one might be willing to go crazy. Note the gem of gems, the personalised '1010' number plate.
Ferrari F430 Spider
Big sister to the Ferrari 458, the F430 made its debut in 2007 to huge success that led to it being produced for the next two years. Messi owns a 2009 Spider that was unveiled in the very year the champion won the first of his 7 Ballon d'Or, not surprisingly. Designed by Pininfarina with the aerodynamic simulation programmes used for Formula One single-seaters, some options specifically requested by the footballer were added to the car, such as the special light grey paint.Designed by Pininfarina with the aerodynamic simulation programmes used for F1 single-seaters, the car is fitted with a number of optional extras specifically requested by the footballer, starting with the light grey bodywork paint.
Cadillac Escalade
For an absolute classy footballer, it takes an equally prestigious car. Following a legendary 2015 'El Clasico' Messi was spotted celebrating with his partner in a Cadillac Escalade. The Escalade's 6.2 litre naturally aspirated V8 combined with the spacious leather interior is the perfect mix of elegance and power, the same characteristics of the albiceleste phenomenon.
Ferrari 335 S Spider Scaglietti
The Ferrari 335 S Spider Scaglietti is definitely the highlight of Messi's collection. Manufactured in 1957 and also driven in races the following year by Stirling Moss, the car was the prized piece of Pierre Bardinon's collection for years before - according to rumours in the Spanish press - in 2016, Leo snatched it away from his all-time rival CR7 during an Artcurial auction at Retromobile. The price? 32 million euros, a pittance.
Audi R8 V10
We close with another Audi signature vehicle, the R8 V10.Before the arrival of his three children (Thiago, Mateo and Ciro), Leo was a lover of two-seater sports cars, and since Audi was the sponsor of Barcelona, the choice could only fall on the powerful 330 km/h R8 V10, which was also very popular with his other teammates. The Argentine's was by his express request blue in colour, later sold at auction in Monte Carlo for 178,000€.
