Recently, a security investigation left Cristiano Ronaldo in suspense, as one of his most luxurious cars was deemed “dangerous” to travel the streets of Europe. At TORK we tell you what happened and why this Portuguese star was worried.
Cristiano Ronaldo Recognized globally in the automotive world for being an exclusive buyer of the brand Bugatti. The Portuguese are fans of this brand and are always among the first to acquire new models offered by the Italian automaker. For example, in 2017, he was one of the first people in the world to roll one of the samples of Chiron on the streets of Madrid, which is considered one of the fastest individuals in the world.
Well, it seems now Cristiano Ronaldo will have to worry about his Chiron This model and later versions are listed as “Dangerous” by European Union Security Committee. After several quality checks, Bugatti will have a serious problem with the durability of its tires, especially those manufactured by the Michelin brand.
The Bugatti Chiron Or Veyron are car models that are able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in just 2.5 seconds. But this is not important. After several tests, it was found that this particular one can reach amazing speeds in excess of 400 km / h. Well, it seems the vehicles aren’t quite as reliable for the ridiculous power that the engine has. As he warned, some kind of crack occurs in the tire that can cause a loss of compression at high speed. If this happens, the control of the car is completely lost, which greatly increases the chances of a fatal accident.
Because of this alert, Bugatti recalled these cars that were sold exclusively in the world. Of course, Cristiano Ronaldo will have to carve out some time from his busy schedule in England to get his favorite car through a security check and the tires can be checked. It is always better to be safe than sorry.
