Champions League Final vs. Cars

Warning. Champions League Final players may find it hard to concentrate on the match.

Warning. Champions League Final players may find it hard to concentrate on the match. And who could blame them, as parked outside the stadium will be a fleet of magnificent cars. Rio Ferdinand, for example, has been spotted in a Porsche Cayenne. Apparently this has been modified by tuning house Techart who bolt-on monstrous body kits and vast alloys. Personalisation can considerably increase the price of a new Cayenne - that even unmodified costs up to £54,000. In high-spec form this 4x4 has a 3.5-litre 325bhp engine, rockets to 62mph in 4.9 seconds, and reaches a football bursting 173mph. Hold on tight.

Parked next to the Porsche may be Wayne Rooney's BMW X5. This prestigious machine rivals the Land Rover Discovery, although it lacks 'x-factor' in comparison. Prices range from £56,440 to £80,795. Clearly this is too cheap, so let's specify a few optional extras. I suggest the electric sunroof for £1,275, the rear-seat entertainment system for £1,635, and Bluetooth for a further £585. In top-of-the-range form this mud-plunger has a 4.4-litre V8 engine that propels football fans to 62mph in 4.7 seconds. Top speed is a mighty 155mph.

The 2011 Champions League final is between Manchester United and Barcelona. This epic battle takes place at Wembley Stadium on May 28th. Kick-off is 19:45 BST.
