Under the supervision of Jose Mourinho, Chelsea destroyed Arsenal 6-0 recently. However, there was a hefty price to pay as Samuel Eto'o suffered a hamstring injury. The Cameroon striker is doing well in his personal life, however, as he's been spotted behind the wheel of a brand new supercar.
Filmed in Paris recently, Eto'o's new ride is a really strange Ferrari 458 Italia coupe, masquerading as a black and yellow hornet. This is of course the Mansory Siracusa Ferrari 458, probably the first example ever made, back in 2011.

Created by a German tuning company called Mansory, the Siracusa is built in very limited numbers using a lot of carbon fiber components which almost double the base price of the car. Not only is the car 70 kg (154 lbs) lighter than the standard 458, but it's also more powerful. Thanks to an ECU remap and sports exhaust system, power is upped 590 hp and 560 Nm of torque. This offers the vehicle a 0-62 mpg sprint time of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 205 mph (330 km/h).

The cosmetic changes leave the 458 barely recognizable and include plenty of carbon fiber parts, such as the front apron with bigger air intakes, hood, new side skirts, which optimize air flow, a rear apron that houses a diffuser. Remember, this is a tuning package that predates the LaFerrari and F12, so inspiration actually came from the Enzo.

There's only a handful of these cars in the world, so it's not a surprise to see the Chelsea footballer eager to get his hands on one. Eto'o is an avid car collector and has been spotted in the Aston Martin V12 Zagato, the One-77 and a Bugatti Veyron. He is definitely not shy with his cash.
