Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has always loved life in Spain and getting to wear the FC Barcelona jersey is nothing short of a dream come through for the Gabonese striker. His mother is Spanish and we learnt his wife and two kids have always lived in Spain. If you ask us to assess his performance so far, I would say pretty good considering his age. Aubameyang recently set a new record as the only player in history to score a hattrick in La Liga, Ligue 1, Bundesliga and English Premier League. That’s pretty awesome right? Before we delve right into what type of cars you will find in his collection, why not get to know him a little bit.
Who is Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang?
The former Arsenal star is Gabonese by nationality. Aubameyang was born on the 18th of June 1989 in Laval, France. He presently plays as a striker for both FC Barcelona and Gabonese national team. Most people would remember his playing days with Dortmund, a club in the Bundesliga. At the time, he was one of the most potent attackers in the world, with his finishing, pace and off-ball movement. Unknown to many, He started his professional footballing career with AC Milan, a club in the Italian Serie A. Surprisingly, he never made any appearance for the Italian club as he spent most of his early playing days on loan in France. Aubameyang won the Coupe de la Ligue title with Saint-Etienne in 2011.
He joined Borussia Dortmund in 2013, where he won the DFB-Pokal and scooped the top scorer award in the 16/17 season. Signing for Arsenal FC in a deal estimated around 56 million pounds made him the most expensive Gabonese player of all time. That’s pretty easy considering we don’t have lots of Gabonese around playing in the top flight. His time at Arsenal was one of a bittersweet situation. He won the joint-top scorer award in the 18/19 EPL season. It was this same season Aubameyang won the FA cup with the Gunners. He left the North London club on what many would refer to as sad note. His contract was cancelled on mutual consent after he was left out on many occasions by Arsenal coach Arteta. He signed for FC Barcelona in the 2022 January transfer and has since made his purchase a worthwhile one with a recent hat trick against Espanyol.
What type of cars do Aubameyang own?
The prolific attacker is a big fan of cars. That isn’t new to us since footballers like him love to fill their garage with exotic cars. Fans of Aubameyang in his new club would have probably seen him in his Ferrari 488 supercar. He recently drove this Italian supercar to Barca training earlier in February 2022. Perhaps, he is a big fan of Italian brands. He also owns a Ferrari LaFerrari, Two Lamborghini urus, and Two Lamborghini Aventador. With that, you would find four Lamborghinis in Aubameyang’s car collection. That’s pretty wild and classy. He also owns a Porsche Panamera, a Range Rover Sport, a Bentley Bentayga and an Aston Martin DB9.
What is Aubameyang’s biggest car regret?
That is actually straightforward. He hated the fact that he sold his very first car, an Audi TT. He bought this German automobile when he was playing for Lille, a side in the French Ligue 1. He did a bit of custom job on the vehicle, like fitting it with butterfly wing doors with the additional R8 kit. Aubameyang isn’t giving up yet on his car collection. He plans to add more exotic cars like Koenigsegg and Pagani Zonda to his collection.
