WHEN it comes to his motors, Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang doesn’t do things in halves.
The Premier League Golden Boot winner has always had a penchant for supercars, and was renowned for his love of Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Porsches and Range Rovers at Borussia Dortmund.
But since signing for the Gunners in January 2018, the Gabon sharpshooter has added a rare Ferrari LaFerrari to his car collection, worth £2m.
Stylish Aubameyang also makes sure his cars look the business, getting them wrapped by North London-based celebrity car customiser, Yianni Charalambous.
This all means that the 29-year-old striker’s garage is now filled with rides worth as much as £3m.
At Dortmund, Aubameyang was renowned for his love of shiny things and had a number of cars wrapped in gold during his time in the Bundesliga.
On transfer deadline day, he was spotted arriving at a German airport in one of them – a stunning £150k Range Rover Sport, custom-designed by luxury car modifiers Mansory and complete with a full body kit.
Mansory also souped up the forward’s Porsche Panamera, which, again, was worth about £150k.
Then there was an Audi R8 V10 Plus, around £160k, that Aubameyang showed off in April, 2016.
The Arsenal hitman wasn’t afraid to wrap his £250k Aston Martin DB9 Volante 2 either, giving that a golden makeover.
And last month, Aubameyang was seen riding in a gold £160k Lamborghini Urus on his way to the Brighton game.
In October last year, Aubameyang took his love of supercars to a whole new level, showing off a £2m Ferrari ‘La Ferrari’ on Instagram.
Sat on the bonnet of one of the world’s most wanted motors, the goal-getter nonchalantly shared the post with the message ‘Good Morning’, as he looked every inch a top star.
Only 499 LaFerraris were made when the car was released last year, and all of them were sold out instantly before they were on the market.
Technology-wise, it leans towards the power of the Italian carmakers’ Formula One car – boasting a 6.3-litre V12 engine capable of 950bhp, as well as a top speed of at least 227 mph.
It’s also capable of hitting 0-60 mph in just 2.9 seconds, which is a lot quicker than an Arsenal counter-attack.
Incidentally, Aubameyang has also been spied driving a £205k Ferrari Spider, and a Ferrari 458 Italia with a value of £200k.
HIS OWN HOTEL CAR PARK
Before the Gunners star found his ideal home in London, he stayed in a five-star hotel.
And he clearly didn’t fancy parting from his favourite cars, managing to import four of them over from Germany that decorated the car park of where he was based.
Parked alongside each other were his Lamborghini Aventador (£270k), a Ferrari 812 Superfast (£250k), a Porsche Panamera Turbo Techart (£140k), and that £150k gold-plated Range Rover Sport Mansory we mentioned earlier.
All in all, the hotel was looking after over £800k-worth of Aubameyang’s car collection – a responsibility that any hotel manager might dread!
But, to ward off any potential damages, the cars were roped off and given their own special car park at the front of his lodgings.
In the run-up to the Europa League final, Aubameyang fancied a new wrap – so he took his £270k Lamborghini Aventador to custom-car expert Yianni Charalambous, who also counts Anthony Joshua, Conor McGregor and Sergio Aguero as clients.
The Lambo was given a stunning pearlescent makeover that glistened in a video Charalambous shared on Instagram.
As well as the wrap, the supercar was fitted with an incredible sound-system, which meant the job could’ve cost Aubameyang around £10k.
It’s the third wrap Yianni has done for the Arsenal ace, who previously sported gold and silver looks with the same Lamborghini.
And you can bet it won’t be the last either!
In 2017, Aubameyang put one of his supercars on the market for £250k.
His Lamborghini Aventador-LP featured a personalised logo on the bonnet, as well as a metallic paint finish that could easily replace the need for any silverware.
And with only 36,000 km on the clock, the Lambo was a steal for whoever could stump up the cash to buy it.
However, it was never confirmed if he parted with this beast. Still, the picture below of him sitting on the roof of car is possibly the best footballer posing with a car snap EVER.
THE FIFTH BEETLE
Three years ago Aubameyang showed he doesn’t mind nipping out in an everyday runner.

He was spotted in Germany driving a very standard Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet, that costs only £22k.
Whether or not he was riding in it as a joke isn’t certain, but the big grin on his face as he stepped out the car in the snap might’ve given him away.
Somehow, it doesn’t seem fitting of the man who is clearly the biggest car nut in football.
