For soccer fans, Karim Benzema needs no introduction. The French professional footballer is the current captain of the Spanish club Real Madrid, where he has won 23 trophies since joining in 2009. He was awarded the UEFA Player of the Year and the Ballon d’Or for his stellar performance for the 2021-2022 season.

Benzema holds the 2021 Guinness World Records for playing and scoring in 17 consecutive seasons in the UEFA Champions League since the 2005-06 season.The Real Madrid striker earns about $331,724 per week and has an estimated net worth of $70 million. With all that money, Benzema is more than able to afford a life of luxury. His garage is lined with some of the rarest and most expensive cars in the world. In fact, Benzema and his teammates at Real Madrid were the recipients of BMW i4s and iXs recently, thanks to the Spanish club’s agreement with BMW after ditching a deal with Audi. So let’s take a look at some of the exotics Benzema hides in his garage.

10. Bugatti Chiron

The Bugatti Chiron is one of the fastest and most powerful production cars on the planet. Benzema owns one of about 500 examples of the Chiron ever made, and it costs nearly $2.5 million. The French striker’s Chiron is wrapped in white and blue paint.

Benzema’s Chiron produces nearly 1,500 hp and 1,180 lb-ft of torque from an 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged W-16 engine. The Chiron is electronically limited to top out at 261 mph, but removing the limiter can take it to 275 mph.

9. Bugatti Veyron 16/4 Pur Sang

The Bugatti 16/4 Veyron Pur Sang is a work of art and a piece of engineering brilliance. The $1.9 million limited edition Veyron was unveiled in 2007, with only five examples available and one found its way to Benzema’s garage.

With its black carbon fiber and polished aluminum finish, jaws drop and heads turn at the sight of the Veyron Pur Sang. The black woven tub accommodates the Veyron’s engine, crash structures, and passenger cell. The 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged W16 produces 1,001 hp and tops out at 253 mph.

8. Ferrari 488 Pista

Ferrari once again showed its engineering prowess goes beyond motorsports with the 488 Pista. For the 488 Pista, the Maranello-based automaker adopts design cues from the 488 Challenge and the 488 GTE race variants. The Ferrari 488 Pista is equipped with the most powerful V8 engine in Ferrari’s history.

The 3.9-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine is paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission and spits out 710 hp and 568 lb-ft of torque. The 488 Pista zooms off to 62 mph in less than 3.0 seconds and tops out at 211 mph.

7. Ferrari 488 Spider

It’s obvious Benzema has a thing for the Prancing Horse 488, as he owns a drop-top variant called the Spider. With its V8 engine, 20-inch diamond finish alloy wheels, and razor-sharp responsiveness, the 488 Spider is a breeze to drive even on the most challenging routes.

The open-top Ferrari weighs only 3,042 lbs, making it the first road-going Ferrari that’s lighter than its coupe counterpart. The V8 engine with zero turbo lag cranks out 661 hp and 561 lb-ft of torque.

6. Ferrari GTC4Lusso

Benzema experiences a whole new world of performance, versatility, and innovation when he gets behind the wheel of the Ferrari GTC4Lusso. The sleek grand-tourer comes in a 3-door shooting brake body style, which is essentially a combination of a sports car and a wagon.

The GTC4Lusso gets its motivation from a 6.2-liter V12 with an output of 681 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. On the inside, you get to experience a flawless triumph of sporty luxury. In fact, the in-car acoustic comfort is significantly better than in the Ferrari FF.

5. Mercedes-AMG G63

As a sportsman, Benzema owns a lot of sports cars that fit well into his luxurious lifestyle. But the French striker also owns a Mercedes-AMG G63 that’s faster than what you’d think for a giant shoebox.

The high-performance version in the Mercedes-Benz G-Class is a serious off-roader with a charming personality. Traction at one wheel is enough to keep the G63 going, thanks to the interaction between the all-wheel drive system, differential locks, and engageable low-range gearbox.

4. Mercedes SLR McLaren

Mercedes-Benz teamed up with McLaren Automotive to build the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren from 2003 to 2009. Benzema owns one of 2,157 examples of the Mercedes SLR McLaren produced, and it cost nearly half a million dollars.

With McLaren engineers working on the grand tourer, you know it would boast impressive performance. Powering the Mercedes SLR McLaren is a hand-built 5.4-liter supercharged V8 engine with an output of 617 hp and 575 lb-ft of torque.

3. Audi RS6 Avant

Benzema actually owns an Audi RS4, which he got as a gift from Audi’s sponsorship of Real Madrid. It seems he has a thing for Audi RS models, as he also added an RS6 Avant to his collection. The Audi RS6 Avant is Benzema’s daily driver and the latest iteration starts at $126,500.

With the RS6 Avant, Audi shows its unparalleled ability to combine a high-performance vehicle with wagon practicality. The Four Rings automaker endowed the RS6 Avant with a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that produces 591 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque.

2. Rolls-Royce Wraith

A $250,000 white Rolls-Royce Wraith is one of the exotics that sits pretty in Benzema’s garage. The two-door pillar-less coupe comes with its iconic suicide doors and a muscular V12 engine that satisfies your taste for luxury and brawn.

The 6.6-liter twin-turbocharged V12 delivers 623 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. All that power is transferred to the rear wheels through an 8-speed automatic transmission. The Wraith blasts to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds and tops out at 160 mph, making it one of the fastest Rolls-Royce vehicles ever made.

1. Lamborghini Gallardo

The Gallardo might be considered an entry-level Lamborghini, but make no mistake, it’s a monster that delivers a superb ride quality and handling characteristics. Benzema owns a red Gallardo, which is enjoyable to drive on the street or at the racetrack.

The Real Madrid captain’s second-generation Gallardo fires 552 hp and 398 lb-ft of torque from a 5.2-liter V10 engine. That’s enough power to propel the Gallardo to 62 mph in less than four seconds.
