BRAZIL legend Ronaldinho may have been hit financial woes, but he still had a car collection to fall back on.

The Ballon d'Or winner, now 43, had some of his fleet seized back in 2018 after he failed to pay a fine accrued by a charity organisation under his name.

Police in Brazil raided his family home in Porto Alegre, and secured two BMWs and a Mercedes Benz.

It is not known if they were returned, however they are just some of the impressive motors the ex-Barcelona star has been seen behind the wheel of.

Bugatti Veyron, £1.6million

Karim Benzema is a fan and so is Ronaldinho.

This £1.6million supercar is a collectors' item that appreciates in value through the years.

It's the fastest road legal car in existence, able to hit a top speed of 267.86 mph.

Only 450 are in existence.

Rolls-Royce Cullinan, £300,000

The second-most expensive car in Ronaldinho's collection.

Sports stars including boxer Andy Ruiz Jr and Cristiano Ronaldo are proud owners of the prestige Cullinan.

Weighing 2.6 tonnes, this Rolls-Royce doesn't lack power.

Its 6.75-litre twin turbo V12 engine means the giant motor is still capable of hitting 62mph in five seconds with a top speed of 155mph.

Hummer, from £86,000

In the late 1990s and early 2000s, any celebrity worth their name in salt owned a Hummer.

Tupac Shakur had one, hotel heiress Paris Hilton and basketball legend Dennis Rodman all owned the massive army-style truck.

Incredibly, it was Arnold Schwarzenegger who lobbied to have the truck made street legal after seeing a convoy of Humvees heading to a military base in Oregon, while he was filming Kindergarten Cop.

When Ronaldinho played for the Catalans, he used to cruise around the streets of Barcelona in his.

BMW X5, from £66,230

One of the cars seized by authorities, the X5 is a midsize SUV that was first released in 1999.

Comfortable and luxurious, it is seen as sporty runner.

Capable of a top speed of 155 mph, it's no slouch.

The X5 can hit 0-60 seconds in 5.3 seconds.

Lamborghini Aventador, £271,146

Aventadors are still doing the rounds among Premier League's elite, and with Brazilians especially.

Man Utd winger Antony recently saw his towed away from outside his home.

While sports stars including Deontay Wilder and Sergio Aguero have had their models wrapped.

Ronaldinho had his in his favourite colour… yellow, just like the Brazil national team.

Ferrari 458, from £155,263

Being a skilful player in his prime who boasted loved showboating, it's no surprise a flashy Ferrari 458 has been part of his car collection.

An absolute beauty in design, it does come with a hefty price tag.

Mesut Ozil, Louis Saha and Mario Balotelli have all rocked this supercar.

Capable of a top speed of 202 mph, it's certainly nippy.

Porsche 911 Carrera S, £110,000

Able to hit 0-60 in just 3.5 seconds, this stunning Porsche is another super fast car Ronaldinho has been seen behind the wheel of.

The brand has been loved by Diego Maradona and Cristiano Ronaldo in the past, so he's in good company.

Again, Ronaldinho's was in yellow – surely a nod to the Brazilian jersey.

It's not known if he has this kept safely in a garage, or has parted company with it.

Aston Martin Rapide AMR, £129,992

In 2019, Ronaldinho became the first person to buy a car at the Riyadh’s Motor Show.

He splashed almost £130,000 on the prestige motor, which offers the height of luxury and taste.
