African football stars can earn in excess of $10 million in annual salary, making just about any luxury available to these athletes. Fast, expensive cars are among the luxuries many choose to spend their money on. Here are 12 African football stars who have the most expensive cars.
Kolo Toure, a Liverpool defender who is Yaya Toure’s older brother, drives a Porsche Cayenne, estimated to cost around $136,113.

Moussa Dembele is another footballer of a Senegalese-French background, and he is part of the Audi Q7 club.
The younger brother of Kolo Toure, Yaya Toure, is in the Porsche Club too, with a slightly pricier model. The Midfielder of the Machester City drives a Porsche 911, estimated at $181,000.
