We know very well how the combo between footballer-supercar is always a valid equation. Especially if your name is Romelu Lukaku, the man who sparked the most exciting football soap opera of the summer, keeping fans across Italy in suspense for two months.The Belgian bomber, 'betrothed' to Inter, first winked at AC Milan and Juve, becoming the object of desire of the Old Lady, who, after weeks of negotiations, reconsidered and 'left him at the altar' to bet definitively on the relaunch of the young Vlahovic. As it often happens, between the two quarrels the third enjoys, and in this case Mourinho's Giallorossi are the ones who enjoy, as they secure the striker's services on a dry loan for this season. Besides, since we are in the mood for proverbs, all roads lead to Rome, dear Romelu.Having closed both parentheses, the humorous one and the football one, let's get down to formal things (another quote) and finally talk about cars, the ones Romelu has in his super garage.
Foreword: what you are reading is not branded content with or for Maserati, as some of you might legitimately think given that three of the five cars reviewed are Trident models. Lukaku has become an ambassador for Maserati between 2020 and 2021, when Maserati launches its tailor-made Fuoriserie segment."Maserati looks like me, because it combines power and passion. I am happy to represent such a historic and prestigious Italian brand," is how the Belgian describes the link between him and the brand.And again: "If you want to achieve your goals you have to have talent and attitude", while on Twitter he writes "Talent is the engine, attitude is the accelerator, I have more in common with the Maserati Levante Trofeo than you can imagine".
Maserati Ghibli HybridElegant sedan with remarkable performance: 330 hp four-cylinder engine, top speed of 255 km/h and acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.7 seconds. The same (or almost, lol) explosiveness as the Belgian's stride in progression.
Maserati MC20The trident supercar presented at Maserati day 2020, the MC20, the eagerly awaited heir to the MC12, could not be absent from the list. 220,000 euro list price (which we imagine Romelu didn't have to cough up, or maybe he did, who knows) proudly sported by the striker on his instagram profile. And we'd like to see that.The performance of this fireball needs no further comment: the MC20 takes just 2.9 seconds to go from 0 to 100 km/h and 8.8 seconds to go from 0 to 200 km/h, for a claimed top speed of 325 km/h. Not bad, except that the motorway limit is 120 km/h!
Bentley Continental GTRomelu Lukaku can also boast a long spell in the Premier League, in the ranks of Chelsea, passing through West Bromwich, Everton, Chelsea again and Manchester United, before joining Inter Milan in 2019. During his time at Everton he was photographed in a stunning Bentley Continental GT in matte black, we don't know if it was a temporary wrapping or a standard colour. In any case, a model that embodies the emblem of the luxury touring saloon according to the British, which can unleash up to 635 horsepower on the ground and reach a top speed of 333 km/h.
Rolls-Royce WraithOnce in Manchester, United's side, Lukaku rushed to buy a Rolls Royce, Manchester's own historic house. The choice fell on the Rolls-Royce Wraith, a model with decidedly sporty characteristics despite its considerable length of 5.3 metres, hyper-customisable in every detail. And in fact Romelu's is in the Red Devils' corporate colours, with matt black bodywork and red trim. What doesn't one do to get into the good graces of the fans?Last but not least, to make sure he doesn't miss anything, when he was in the Premier League Lukaku indulged in compulsive shopping for three Mercedes: a GLS 63, a GT-R and an S-Class Coupé.Last but not least, per non farsi mancare nulla, quando era in Premier Lukaku si è lasciato andare allo shopping compulsivo di tre Mercedes: una GLS 63, una GT-R e una Classe S Coupé.
