Taxi loving Marquinhos says his £170k Ferrari is “boring”



Call it a case of different strokes for different fellows and you will be totally correct. At a time when some may consider owning a car a huge achievement, PSG star Marquinhos has described his £170,000 Ferrari as “boring”  and would rather hop into a taxi.

The Brazilian has been with the Ligue 1 champions for seven years, winning six league titles and reaching the Champions League final last season.

And one of the first investments the defender made on his move from Roma was the Ferrari 458 Italia, which is known to reach 62mph in 3.4 seconds.

This machine does not tickle Marquinhos

But the Brazilian has admitted that he does not like to rev the engine very often of his £170,000 car.

Speaking to French magazine So Foot [via RMC Sport], Marquinhos said: “I bought it when I arrived at PSG, but it’s true that I use it very little.

“I don’t like driving, it bores me. I know that there are some who like to go out on their own, but this is not the case.

“The Ferrari, I take it out only with family or friends. I like that we take advantage of it all together.”

And the interview says that Marquinhos often prefers to move through the streets of France’s capital by taxi instead of his Ferrari.

When questioned on his decision to buy the car, though, the 26-year-old gave a passionate answer.

“Because I love her,” he replied, She’s part of my story.”

“When I was young, my family did not run on gold.

“This car is a whim of a young footballer, I am aware of it, but it makes this dream come true.

“I always wanted to go pro, play for a big club and buy myself a nice car. I wanted to tick all of those boxes, so the day I bought it, it was historic.
