Just before Bugatti begins delivering its new Chiron to customers, the automaker has found a champion to test drive the $2.6 million hypercar. In a new promotional video, the French luxury brand’s ultimate sports car was taken for a final spin out on the track.

Football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, known for his love of exotic cars, sat behind the wheel of the Chiron in Madrid to find out how fast the near-1500HP beast can actually go. While Ronaldo wasn’t drifting it sideways, it’s clear that the 16-cylinder engine under the bonnet can do one thing very well — put a smile on your face.

Watch the video above to see Ronaldo’s impressions of Bugatti’s latest masterpiece.

In other news, you can now have Mike Tyson’s 1995 Ferrari F50 for a cool $2.4 million.
