Cristiano Ronaldo has changed the face of soccer -- not to mention that of a few fine cars. You might recall that in January, Ronaldo had a confrontation with a brick wall in his Ferrari 599 GTB, which was okay for Ronaldo, but not so much for the supercar. Last we heard, Chrissy was looking seriously at a Lamborghini Gallardo, but like many his age, the guy has Wandering Eye Syndrome: new reports say that he'll be testing the Ferrari 458 Italia in Maranello, Italy very soon. As much as we like sports, we'd be inclined to lock the windows and bolt the doors for the duration. [LeBlogAuto, iffy Google translation here]

  1. The 458 is a serious machine--shouldn't Ferrari steer him towards the California? "Testing"? That's cover for, "Get him some track time because he drives like my grandmother". Even better, now that Ronaldo is playing for a Spanish team, he should contact the SEAT people and get them to build him a one-off like that Cupra GT. A little humility in front of the fans that pay your wages would go a long way.

  2. Although you and I are totally on the same page with regard to Mr. Ronaldo, I've never seen the terms "24-year-old", "humility", and "soccer star" all in the same sentence.
