Not many footballers openly share what cars they own, but Karim Benzema is not like many footballers as he showed off his car collection on his own YouTube channel.

The passion that Real Madrid's No.9 has for cars is clear to see, with his impressive range including a Bugatti Chiron, Veyron Pur Sang, McLaren-Mercedes SLR, Mercedes G65 AMG, Audi RS 4, RS 6 and RS Q8.

Benzema also shared that his first car was a Mini Cooper S in black, which he bought off his friend.

After signing his first professional contract with Lyon on his 18th birthday, he bought a BMW M6 507 CV.

Bugatti Chiron: 1,500 horsepower, 2.4 million euros

Benzema considers the Chiron as one of his most valuable pieces and not only because it cost him 2.4 million euros but because it is only 1of 500 produced.

The striker also said that it is the fastest car he has ever owned. It has 1,500 horsepower and can get up to 420 km/h.

Bugatti Veyron Pur Sang: One of five in the world

With a price of 1.4 million euros, it comes as no surprise that Benzema considers his Bugatti Veyron Pur Sang as his most important car.

The car stands out for its two-tone body of polished aluminium and black carbon fibre. Benzema said in the clip that there are only two available to buy of the five and that its value has rocketed.

Although Benzema did not reveal which Ferrari model he owns, he does mention that the Italian brand is the one that stood out to him from his childhood, when his passion for cars was born.

On the Real Madrid striker's Instagram he can be seen driving a 488 Pista, a 488 Spider and a GTC4 Lusso.

Mercedes G65 AMG: For everyday use

The G65 AMG has 612 horsepower and is an off-roader with an explosive V12 engine.

Audi RS 4: 'Just' 80,000 euros

Benzema's model is second generation (2006). At that time, it was equipped with 420 horsepower and a V8 engine and its price starts at 82,000 euros.
