Zlatan may have dropped out of the Forbes top 100 highest-paid athletes in the word, but he still a good deal at AC Milan, as he currently walks home with as much as a €7-million yearly salary, making him the highest-paid player in that team.
He amassed his wealth playing soccer with clubs in virtually every continent except maybe Australia, Asia, and South America. His highest paydays were when he played for Manchester United F.C., where he reportedly earned as much as $27 Million, which is equivalent to about ₦10.29 Billion.
Now let's explore Ibrahimovic's car collection, as we salivate about their dubious prices...Lol.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic Cars
As you would have expected, the "Lion" as he is fondly referred to owns some of the most classic and expensive supercars in his garage. A look at his automobile collection reveals his love for high speed and deafening growl monsters. Let's take a close look at some of his priced automobiles, as we explore their features and prices.
1. Porsche 918 Spyder - (₦300 million)
The 918 Spyder is the very definition of a classic Ferrari supercar with endearing and soft curves but with the very conspicuously obvious Ferrari growl that you can hear from a mile away.
This one is undoubtedly one of Zlatan's finest cars and it dug a sizeable hole in the striker's pocket before landing in his garage. The supercar reportedly cost Zlatan Ibrahimovic as much as $800,000 then which currently exchanges for over ₦300 million.

Isn't the Porsche 918 Spyder just a beauty to behold?

When it comes to features and specs, the Porsche 918 Spyder delivers some of the coolest. The supercar is just as fast as Ibra would want it, covering as much 62 miles from rest in just about 2.8 seconds (0-62 mph in 2.8 secs). This number can only be contested by a few other cars like the McLaren P1 which posts the same speed.
The 918 Spyder can reportedly reach a maximum speed of 214 mph with its 4.6 Liter V8 engine and two performance electric motors delivering all the power it requires. The V8 engine alone supplies about 608 hp and when combines with the juice delivered by the electric motors reach up to 887 hp.
In the same vein, the combined torque rating supplied by the V8 engine and the electric motors reaches about 944 lb-ft, which possibly explains why the car is that fast. And to top it off, the V8 engine combines with a 7-speed PDK transmission.
Listen to how fierce the 918 Spyder sounds as the "Lion" himself spins it away in the video below,

2. Ferrari Monza SP2 - (₦648.13 Million)
Remember we said the "Lion" likes them super fast with a deafening high growl, this one falls perfectly in that category, an elegant looking speedster that gives that kind of growl Zlatan loves so much. This is that kind of ride that may frighten you when you hear its growl from a distance but just immediately softens your heart when you eventually set eyes on it. In fact, this is how its makers describe the car,
A car that seems sculpted by the wind. It is the purity of the styling elements that impresses – an aesthetic that is futuristic but, at the same time, a respectful yet un-nostalgic homage to the past.
Isn't that too much for one car?.... Lol. This car is worth it and the price tag also justifies the glowing description. The Monza SP2 which is the older cousin of the Monza SP2 was introduced to the market in 2018 and just a year or so later, the Limited Edition supercar made its way to Zlatan Ibrahimovic's expensive garage.

This can only be the backside of a ₦648.13 Million supercar
The Sportscar comes with a heavy 6.5 Liter V12 engine that juices out as much as 799 hp. The supercar is almost as fast as Zlatan's other speedster, the Porsche 918 Spyder, coming short by just 0.1 seconds at 2.9 sec (0-100km/hr in 2.9 secs). On the torque side of things, the Monza SP2 delivers a moderate 530 lb-ft, thus confirming that most of its speed is derived from its monstrous V12 engine and its 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
Zlatan got the $1.7 Million (₦648.13 Million) Monza SP2 as a birthday gift for himself and boldly announced its arrival in an Instagram post. See as the superstar blasts away in his supercar in the video below, an act that cost him a few thousand Euros as the ride had its registration cancelled earlier.

3. Ferrari LaFerrari - (₦533.68 Million)
Ibra as we fondly call him here in Nigeria also owns another expensive piece from the Ferrari vehicle clan, a Coupe body style Ferrari LaFerrari. The coupe body style of this supercar was built between 2013 to 2016.
The Ferrari LaFerrari reportedly cost Ibrahimovic as much as $1.4 Million which is equivalent to about ₦533.68 Million. The LaFerrari comes with an engine Ferrari describes with the following words,
The Most Powerful Naturally Aspirated Engine Ever Used on a Ferrari Road Car
The 6.3 Liter V12 Ferrari engine is closely supported by single electric motors that supply power juice directly to the vehicle differential rather than to the vehicle transmission. They combine to deliver 950 hp with the Electric motor supplying about 161 hp while the V12 balances this with its 789 hp. In the same vein, both combine to supply about 715 lb-ft of torque (516 lb-ft from the V12 and 199 lb-ft from the electric motor).

With such engine power and torque rating, you would expect the LaFerrari to flounder when it comes to acceleration. It delivers this with style reaching a tap-out speed of 217 mph and reaching 62 mph in under 3 seconds. However, we would have expected its speed to eclipse that posted by the Porsche 918 Spyder, but we also noticed that the LaFerrari weighs a lot less than the 918 Spyder. Thus its speed rating is just fine considering its weight.

4. Ferrari Enzo Ferrari - (₦762.4 Million)
Another of Ibrahimovic's supercars and by far his most expensive automobile in his collection is the very special Ferrari Enzo Ferrari. The Enzo was a limited edition supercar built between 2002 and 2004, with just 400 units of the car built. Expectedly, Zlatan happens to be one of the lucky 400 with the financial muscle and celebrity status needed to have this special piece in their garage.
The Enzo Ferrari reportedly cost Zlatan about $2 Million which would exchange for as much as ₦762.4 Million going by the current monetary exchange rate. The vehicle was designed with the intention of being a street-legal Formula 1 supercar, an intention made obvious by the 6-Speed Electro-hydraulic, Clutchless Manual Transmission or what we generally call the Automated Manual Transmission. Other F1 technologies found in the car include the use of carbon fiber in the vehicle's body construction and the special composite disc brakes made of Silicon carbide Ceramic reinforced with carbon fiber.
This is a ₦762.4 Million Supercar
Worth every single penny
The Enzo Ferrari which was the precursor vehicle in terms of design for Ferrari's modern generation performance cars was built on a carbon-fibre and Nomex honeycomb monocoque chassis and came with a 6.0 Liter V12 engine that supplied a good 650 hp and 485 lb-ft torque.
The Supercar is surely a speedster as Zlatan loves them fast. This one can clock a maximum speed of 217 mph and accelerates from rest to 62 mph in just 3.1 seconds (0-62 mph in 3.1 secs.

5. Ferrari 488 Pista - (₦125.8 Million)
Another fierce-looking Ferrari makes its way to Zlatan Ibrahimovic's very expensive garage. The Ferrari 488 Pista which was produced between 2015 and 2019 is the striker's latest automobile acquisition with a price tag of about ₦125.8 Million ($330,000).
After the infamous Stockholm fine for driving the unregistered Monza, Zlatan bounced back with yet another Ferrari just to calm his nerves ...Lol. The 488 Pista is such a beauty and is a speedster too. Check out how Ferrari themselves describe the 488 Pista below,
The Ferrari 488 Pista is powered by the most powerful V8 engine in the Maranello marque’s history and is the company’s special series sports car with the highest level yet of technological transfer from racing.
To get an idea of the performance of the acclaimed most powerful V8 engine in Ferrari history, we take a look at the performance numbers. It hits a maximum speed of 211 mph and can clear the 0-62 mph lap in just 2.8 seconds, the exact time done by the Porsche 918 Spyder. However, the feat demonstrated by the 488 Pista is really impressive when you consider that all of its power comes from just its engine compared to the 918 Spyder whose acceleration is duly supported by twin electric motors.
Zlatan and his love for the Ferrari brand
The 488 Pista comes with a 3.9 Liter Turbocharged V8 engine that is mated with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. See more photos of the Ferrari 488 Pista below,

The Ferrari 488 Pista costs about ₦125.8 Million
Zlatan remains one of the Swedish Automaker Volvo's biggest celebrity influencers. We believe he took possession of the $40,000 (₦15.25 Million) Volvo ZC70 as part of the endorsement deal with the carmaker. Zlatan also has in his garage a white Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale which cost the striker about $130,000 or about ₦49.56 Million.
He also owns a Lamborghini Urus SUV and reportedly took delivery of a Porsche 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition which costs about ₦151 Million ($395,300). But what we brought you here represents Zlatan's current taste in cars and automobiles.
