20 Outrageous Athlete Rides

William Gallas

Ride: Mercedes-Benz SLR McClaren, 2009

For most stuntatstic athletes, it's their chains that provide the bling. But that's not the case with former Tottenham Hotspur defender Willliam Gallas. The French national, who made his bank playing in soccer's English Premier League, may have been stripped of his captain status during the 2008-2009 season, but no one has been able to strip their eyes off of his chrome-plated Mercedes-Benz SLR McClaren. Once labeled as the fastest convertible in the world, the McLaren can go from 0 to 60mph in just 3.6 seconds, and it boasts a maximum speed of 207mph. The price for such a strikingly efficient vehicle: $535,000.
