Audi sponsored Real Madrid players with new cars – guess which model Ronaldo picked


Audi have been sponsors of the Spanish La Liga giants, Real Madrid since 2003 and apparently, the whole squad is usually treated to a fresh set of wheels to be seen with and get this, it happens annually!

As if these cash-rich footballers needed any help in getting a car with salaries swelling well beyond the millions of Euros per year – you’d be surprised what the majority actually went for – rather practical options.

Cristiano Ronaldo though, being the flamboyant character that he is, both on and off field, picked the flashiest wheels of the lot – a Panther Black Audi RS7 Sportback performance.

Coach Zinedine Zidane went for an Audi RS 6 Avant while Captian Sergio Ramos’ pick was reported to be the most expensive – an Audi R8 Spyder.

By far the most popular pick amongst the Madrid players were, surprisingly, the Audi Q7 – with 14 players including the likes of Gareth Bale and Luka Modric opting for the luxury SUV. Of the 14, three opted for the Audi Q7 e-tron quattro plug-in hybrid.

Before the handover of “company cars”, the “Galaticos” were put through a virtual test drive in the Audi e-tron FE04 where Dani Carvajal emerged the fastest driver.

Glad to know Cristiano Ronaldo isn’t the best at everything in Real Madrid and is human after all.

Regularly spend countless hours online looking at cars and parts I can’t afford to buy. How a car makes you feel behind the wheel should be more important than the brand it represents – unless resale value is your thing.
