Emmanuel Adebayor car collection: £360,000 Rolls-Royce and £18,000 Can-Am Spyder just some of amazing fleet of luxury motors

EMMANUEL ADEBAYOR’S car collection quite simply leaves all others biting the dust.
And it is his customised Rolls-Royce Phantom that steals the show, not least because of its price tag.
Emmanuel Adebayor has an – as expected – outrageous car collection
The one-of-a-kind motor starts at an eye-popping £360,000 – but that does not take into account its orange paint job and matching interior.
And there is the personalised number plate – 0004 SEA – a reference to his shirt number and initials, Sheyi Emmanuel Adebayor.
No wonder that alongside one image of him at the wheel of the car he wrote: “Love my lifestyle.”
Former Arsenal, Real Madrid and Spurs star Adebayor, who now plays for Istanbul Basksehir in Turkey, boasts an amazing array of motors which he keeps safely under cover at a custom-built hangar at his huge home in Accra, Ghana.

One photo shows Adebayor apparently fast asleep with his cavalcade stretched out behind him as far as the eye could see.
The Roller took pride of place in that photo but it is his £18,000 Can-Am Spyder trike which is probably his weirdest vehicle.
The futuristic three-wheeler boasts 115hp and electronic cruise control.
It looks ideal for a quick trip down to the shops.

But for that, Adebayor uses his souped-up Mercedes-Benz people carrier.
The motor features leather La-Z-Boy seating, curtains on the windows, an arm rest between the back two chairs and stands for his phone and iPad.
Smiling happily inside for one photo, Adebayor captioned the snap: “On my way to town for some quick shopping.”
Should he fancy something different then the Togo star can whip out his Mercedes-Benz G65 SUV, which starts from around £170,000.

With a handcrafted AMG 6.0L V12 and 621hp, the impressive all-terrain beast packs a serious punch.
But Adebayor is more than willing to share his cars and his cash.
It was reported that in 2012 the former Real Madrid striker gave away a Range Rover – said to be worth six figures – to his close mate and comedian Funny Face.
This year for his birthday, Adebayor told his pal that he could have pretty much whatever he wanted.

“Please remember we promised not to finish each other’s money, so be reasonable.”
So keen is Adebayor on cars that he even has traffic jams at his home!

Ex Manchester City star Nigel de Jong owns an incredible car showroom that sells Lamborghinis and Ferraris to the rich and famous

NIGEL DE JONG isn’t your average footballer.
Combative on the pitch, he was a nightmare to play against – just ask Xabi Alonso who was on the wrong end of his infamous 2010 World Cup final karate kick tackle.
Nigel de Jong co-owns a car showroom called Continental CarsInstagram
But off it, that brutish nature he had while playing for clubs including Hamburg, Man City and AC Milan perhaps belies his intelligence.
While he was a youth player at Ajax, de Jong, 33, considered a life after football and graduated with an Economics degree.
Then, during his time in Germany, he co-founded Continental Cars – an incredible showroom full of the world’s most expensive cars in 2007.
The garage has got everything from Lamborghini Aventadors, several Bentley Continental GT and GTCs, Wiesmanns, Maseratis, as well as a Ferrari F430.

Based in Hamburg, Continental Cars was set up in 2007Instagram
The most incredible supercars are available to buy in the showroomInstagram
From Ferraris to Bentleys, de Jong sells only the best cars in the worldInstagram
The likes of Mesut Ozil and Lukas Podolski are said to have visited the showroomInstagram
So it’s no wonder the likes of Mesut Ozil and Lukas Podolski are said to be customers.
“I have a degree in economics,” he told Joe.

“My mother always said ‘football is only part of your life, you have to develop yourself beyond that’ and I felt it was vital for me to do something for myself that wasn’t related to it.
“Besides being a professional player, I had the dream of owning a company and when I had the money and the expertise, I made it happen.”

Nigel de Jong’s following a family tradition in selling carsInstagram
His grandfather was a CEO for Ford in HollandInstagram

And selling cars is something that certainly runs in the family.
He continued: “My grandfather was one of the CEOs of Ford in Holland and I saw closely how he developed himself as a businessman.
“He was always on time, making sure payments were never late, paying attention to service and giving customers extra, always making sure the company and his family was stable.
“I looked up to him, and off the pitch, I wanted to be like him. I also think his professionalism is something I carried with me as a footballer too.

As a player, de Jong was nicknamed The LawnmowerGetty – Contributor
But it’s amazing cars that rev his engine nowInstagram
Thanks to his earnings, de Jong has the financial resources to build a stellar car businessInstagram
“God gave me the talent and the strength to become a football player, which gave me the financial resources and empowerment to improve in other areas.
“I think it’s so important for football players to be smart with what they do with their salaries, because it can become an investment or be gone before you know it.
“It is very tempting in our industry to live for now – to buy the expensive cars and live a flashy lifestyle – but you have to plan so you’re able to do that in future too.
“This is an education players should get from a very early age to help them deal with the money they’ll make.”
Continental Cars also sell expensive motors to Gulf state oil sheikhsInstagram
Range Rover is always one of the most popular cars among the jet setInstagram
In an interview last year with Voetbal International, de Jong spoke about his impressive client list that includes footballers and some Gulf state oil sheikhs.
“Of course many footballers know where to find us,” he said.
“But also business people, collectors, and we just have to work hard for it, it’s not that we’ve had success for ten years.
“We were faced with the financial crisis when we came out.”

Currently plying his trade for Qatar Stars League club Al Ahli, de Jong’s business acumen extended to his missus.
During his time in Italy, he persuaded his stunning wife Winona into launching a fashion label.
WINONAH appeared in 2015 and has continued to go from strength to strength with its high-end clothing.
“Some people say footballers are thick and not bright enough to be entrepreneurs,” De Jong told Bundesliga.com.
For his next venture, de Jong is planning on building parking garagesInstagram

“But when I see that a company has potential, I move the borders and go all the way for it.”
And staying with cars, de Jong is planning on launching a new business this year.
“Take a look around, all Hamburg is built, everyone is looking for parking lots,” he told Focus.
“We want to build a parking garage in every major German city.”
And with the success The Lawnmower, as he was affectionately nicknamed, has had in business so far, who’d bank on that not being a success too?
