A new film from Nike Football showcases Cristiano Ronaldo’s phenomenal speed when he goes head-to-head in a speed test against the Bugatti Veyron.
Shot at a secret test track in North-West England, the viral shows Ronaldo testing the new Mercurial Vapor 4 football boot which is specifically designed to improve speed with and without the ball. Ronaldo, one of the fastest football players in the world today, goes head-to-head against the Bugatti Veyron; the world’s fastest road car.
Man v machine: who wins?
In the film, Ronaldo approaches the starting line wearing his new football boots in preparation to race the Veyron. The car approaches, the gun sounds and Ronaldo gets off to a blistering start. The pace proves too much for the Bugatti as Ronaldo finishes ahead of the car thanks to a second burst of acceleration by the Manchester United & Portugese winger at the turn around.

In describing the experience, Cristiano Ronaldo said, “I liked doing the race; seeing the car accelerating with me was great! And obviously winning was what I liked the most.”

The Mercurial Vapor features Nike’s innovative Speed Plate technology designed to give players instant acceleration and make them fastest to and with the ball. The Mercurial Vapor is the fastest, lightest football boot available.
