Son Heung-min of Tottenham Hotspur has a collection of supercars that reflects his speed and wealth, the Sun tabloid newspaper reported Tuesday.
Son "splashed much of his 110,000 [pound]-a-week wage on luxury motors," it said.
The most expensive in Son's collection is a Ferrari LaFerrari, which takes 3 seconds to reach 100km/h with its 6.262-liter engine and can speed up to 350 km/h on any roads where that could conceivably be legal.
It costs W1.8 billion but is not always available even to those who can afford that since the Italian carmaker only made 499 LaFerraris and there are over 1,000 people on the waiting list.
Although red is the quintessential Ferrari color, Son bought a black LaFerrari because red is the color of Spurs' archrival Arsenal, according to the Sun.
Son also sometimes drives a Bentley Continental GT or a relatively humble Range Rover to training. In Korea, he was spotted with his K-pop star ex-girlfriend in an Audi R8, and owns a Maserati Levante SUV, which the carmaker gave him as a gift in 2017.
