There are few people that make it onto a Forbes list, and there are few people who make it into the world of professional sports as an athlete. To make it into both of those categories requires an unthinkable amount of savvy and dedication, a lifetime of hard work and smart decisions regarding investments, sponsorship choices, management and much more.
It’s a rare achievement to reach the financial top of professional athletes, but in a June 10 list, Forbes has compiled the top 100 people who have done so.

Check out our list of transportation suggestions for these athletes below, and let us know in the comments if you think there’s another car more suited to the person.
Kobe Bryant | $49.5 Million
2014 Lamborghini Aventador
A car fit for a king representing true LA Lakers style.
Tiger Woods | $50.6 Million
2012 Ferrari FF
Subtle, sporty and incredibly good looking, the FF is the perfect pairing for one of the world’s most famous men to ever wield a club.
Phil Mickelson | $50.8 Million
2015 BMW i8
Track-capable performance figures with an average consumption of 76 mpg – what’s not to love?
Kevin Durant | $54.1 Million
2016 Mercedes-AMG GT S
As a fan of the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, it only makes sense that Durant would own the model’s successor.
LeBron James | $64.8 Million
2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6
Tough enough to take anywhere, with enough leg room to accommodate James’ height.
Roger Federer | $67 Million
Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Gullwing
Sleek, stunning and a car with a reach that can compete with Federer’s serve.
Lionel Messi | $73.8 Million
2005 Maserati MC12
Lionel Messi has already confirmed that he’s a fan of Maserati, and especially of his GranTurismo MC Stradale. But it’s hard to compete with the prestige of the MC12 – one of these would make a fine addition to his collection.
Cristiano Ronaldo | $79.6 Million
2015 McLaren P1
There doesn’t seem to be a particular type of fine car that Ronaldo has an interest in, but that’s not to say he doesn’t know a fine car when he sees it. He took a ride in the P1 and seemed to enjoy it, so perhaps it’s time to add one to his list.
Manny Pacquiao | $160 Million
1965 Icon D200 Dodge Crew Cab 4×4 Custom
He’s shown a penchant both for SUVs and high performance supercars, so a custom Dodge from ICON might be right up this boxing star’s alley.
Floyd Mayweather | $300 Million
Mayweather’s collection is legendary, but with the recent sale of his Enzo, perhaps it’s time for another monumental Ferrari to enter circulation.
