Lionel Messi has just won the third-ever football world cup for Argentina, and his first-ever too. The ace footballer from Argentina has always been known as the greatest footballer of all time, a title which has now become unquestionable after his world cup victory. Apart from his king-like stature in the world of football, Messi also owns a dreamy car collection to match that stature. Following are all the luxury and sports cars owned by Lionel Messi:
After reaching Argentina post winning the world cup, Lionel Messi was seen being driven in an Audi Q8 to his home. The ace footballer was seen arriving at his home in a silver-coloured Audi Q8, which was being driven by his wife. The Audi Q8 is available in India as Audi’s flagship SUV with a 3.0-litre TFSI 340 PS petrol engine as standard.

Lionel Messi also owns an ultra-exclusive 1957 Ferrari 355 S Spider Scaglietti, which is one of the rarest Ferraris on this planet. Only four units of this car were made, all of which got a 4.0-litre 390 PS V12 engine. This open-top two-seater sports car was bought by Lionel Messi in a public auction for a staggering 25 million GBP.
Lionel Messi has an ultra-exclusive Pagani Zonda Cinque, of which only five units were made in the world. This very rare version of the already exclusive Pagani Zonda is powered by a 7.3-litre V12 engine, which claims 678 PS of maximum power and 780 Nm of maximum torque.
Land Rover Range Rover Vogue
One of the most luxurious full-sized SUVs available in the world, the Range Rover Vogue joins the SV Autobiography as the range-topping version of the SUV. Lionel Messi owns a black-coloured fourth-generation Range Rover Vogue, however, it is unclear which powertrain powers this particular Range Rover Vogue owned by Messi. In addition to this, Messi also owns a white-coloured Range Rover Sport.
Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale
Messi has been seen with his white-coloured Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale a few times, which ranks as one of the most underrated sports coupes of modern times. The GranTurismo MC Stradale is powered by a Ferrari-sourced 4.7-litre 450 PS V8 engine, along with a few carbon-fibre add-ons over the standard version of the GranTurismo.
Mercedes-AMG GLE Coupe
Another unique SUV in the car collection of Lionel Messi is a white-coloured Mercedes-Benz GLE 63 AMG. This fast-coupe SUV gets its power from a 5.5-litre turbocharged V8 engine, which powered most of the AMG offerings of its times. This V8 claims 590 PS of power and 768 Nm of torque.
A range of Audis gifted by FC Barcelona
During his association with FC Barcelona, Lionel Messi was awarded a range of Audis like the RS6, R8, A7 and Q7. However, all these SUVs were taken back by Audi as soon as the carmaker’s association with FC Barcelona as a mobility partner ended in 2019. In the following year, Messi also parted ways with FC Barcelona to join the French club Paris Saint Germaine (PSG).
