Sponsored: Europe’s football stars all drive supercars – find out their values on the used car market!

Motorway has always been first off the bench to give you more money when you sell your car.

From family estates, to SUVs, compact cars, vans, and even footballer-worthy sports cars, you can use Motorway to value, sell, and run checks on pretty much any car.

A car’s value is determined by many things.

On top of the model and engine type, features and extras like seat upholstery and tech upgrades can add to a car’s worth. But the biggest factor is age – even for a celeb supercar.

What would you be driving, if you were representing your team in one of Germany’s 70,000 capacity stadiums? A Bentley like Harry Kane, or perhaps a Ferrari as favoured by the French superstar, Kylian Mbappé?

For a taste of that winning feeling, sell your car on Motorway and you could get more money.

Are the star players of the Euros driving your dream car?

This summer marks the 17th UEFA European Championship, hosted for the first time in ten cities across Germany. Here’s everything you need to know about the most valuable cars driven by the tournament's highest earners.

Group A:

Fast facts: Germany’s had three wins in the Euros and three years as runners-up too, while Scotland, Hungary, and Switzerland haven’t won or placed before.

As hosts this year, will the German team have enough confidence and drive to win again?

Germany’s Autobahn is one of the only motorway networks in the world containing sections with no speed limit.

German cars are reliably at the top of the rankings with Motorway dealers.

With the nation’s long history of innovations in engineering, the ‘big 3’ (Volkswagen Group, making Audi and Porsche, as well as BMW and Mercedes-Benz) are popular among car dealers and sellers alike.

⭐ Manuel Neuer, Goalkeeper on the German side, is known to drive a customised Audi RS6 Avant C7 - known for powerful acceleration. Average estimated value of the Audi RS6 Avant on Motorway: £86,600

It was Scottish make Argyll that first made a car with a sunroof (despite the weather!)

⭐ Andrew Robertson, Scottish defender, drives a Range Rover Sport, engineered to meet every challenge. The Range Rover Sport has an average estimated value on Motorway of £38,100.

The star player, Granit Xhaka, knows his worth, driving a quarter-million dollar Lamborghini Urus and a Porsche Cayenne, among other luxury SUVs.

⭐ Fabian Schar, defender, loves how his sleek Lamborghini Urus S cuts through the air and tame the road. The average estimated value on Motorway for the Urus is £180,300.

Group B:

Fast facts: Spain has also won the Euros three times, and Italy twice (they were the last winners in 2020, in fact), while Croatia and Albania haven’t won before.

It's a battle of the popular summer holiday destinations for Group B.

⭐ Luka Modrić, Croatia’s captain and legendary midfielder, is rumoured to drive both footballer-favourite Bentley Continental GT and the Audi RS7. Powerfully sporty just like Modric, the average estimated value on Motorway of the RS7 is £67,000.

All eyes will be on reigning champions Italy as they go into this year’s Euros tournament.

Group B features one of their softer rivalries, the ‘Mediterranean Derby’ against Spain.

Group C:

Fast facts: While Serbia were runners-up twice in the ‘60s, they’ve never won the Euros, and neither have the Slovenian team. Denmark has a win under its belt, though, and England was runner-up in 2020.

Is it finally coming home this year?

By far the most-sold car on Motorway in England is the beloved Ford Fiesta.

Despite Ford hailing from the US, its place on the UK market goes virtually uncontested, appearing in the top-5 popular cars ever since it was brought to market.

Always an affordable car, it was discontinued in 2022. But its used value remains relatively high, especially compared to similar models.

The UK’s most beloved national brand, though, has to be MINI. Their bright and playful range of vehicles cuts a striking profile on the road, and with nearly 800,000 of them in circulation with a valid MOT, this make represents over 2.3% of all vehicles in the UK.

The English side has too many star players to count in 2024. Crowd-favourite Saka was England Men’s Player of the year in 2022 and 2023, and Phil Foden won the Premier League Player of the Season this year.

Jude Bellingham is the second-youngest scorer for England at a World Cup, and will be looking to assist captain and goal scoring machine Harry Kane this summer.

⭐ When it comes to England’s highest-paid player, and his most impressive car, we of course turn to Harry Kane. Known to be choosy about cars, with a love of quality over quantity, his only sports model is a bespoke Bentley Continental GT Supersports. The Continental is a modern classic with a whopping estimated value on Motorway of £128,200!

Having only competed in the Euros once before, in 2,000, Slovenia have their work cut out to place in Group C.

⭐ You can’t mention the Slovenian team without a mention of goalie Jan Oblak. He’s a major fan of the high-performing Porsche 911 owning a fully customised model.

On Motorway, the 911 is equally high-performing with an average estimated value of £99,200.

This year’s squad pick features Premier League stars Joachim Andersen, Christian Eriksen, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Mathias Jensen, and Rasmus Hojlund.

Will this be the year that ‘Danish Dynamite’ is revived?

⭐ Midfielder Christian Eriksen sticks to classic, German-built luxury brand Audi. His bespoke Q8 combines design and powerful driving experience. On Motorway, the Audi Q8 dazzles with an average estimated value of £105,400.


Image: Motorway

All eyes are on new manager Dragon Stojikovic to see if he’ll lead his team to success.

He previously played for Nagoya in Japan, where he appeared in over 400 games and scored 125 goals.

Such was his contribution that Toyota once dedicated a car to his nickname, the Piksimobile!

⭐ Forward Dušan Tadić loves getting behind the wheel of his elegant high-spec Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe. Mercedes are always popular on Motorway. One of the top-selling makes, a GLE Coupe has an average estimated value of £43,900.

Group D:

Fast facts: France has two wins and a runner-up place to its name, while the Netherlands has a very respectable win from the ‘80s in its history. Poland and Austria have never won or placed in the Euros.


Image: Motorway

French brands Citroën, Peugeot, and Renault are always popular in the UK. All three have an average price on Motorway of over £10,500 (and over £13,000 for Peugeot).

Star player Mbappé has a sponsorship deal with Volkswagen, and a garage full of VWs from their popular SUVs Tiguan and Touareg, to the Multivan, and the fully-electric ID.5.

However, it’s been widely reported that he’s so dedicated to his training that he doesn’t yet have a driving licence!

⭐ Mbappé’s slickest ride is a top-of-the-line Ferrari 488 Pista. With a powerful engine, it sets a fast pace in the used market too. Estimated value on Motorway: £289,000*.


Image: Motorway

Poland has had a rocky few years of manager turnover and defeats, but the Eagles won their place in the Euros during the play-offs, beating Estonia 5-1 and winning on penalties against Wales after a 0-0 draw.

⭐ The side will rely on striker Robert Lewandowski to score for the side as well as he does for Barcelona. Planning a move into car racing after his football career, his fleet does not disappoint: his sports cars include a Maserati GranTurismo Sport, Porsche 911 Speedster, Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, and a Porsche Cayenne GTS. The highest estimated value on Motorway fetched by his Porsche 911 Speedster is an impressive £270,000*.

The Netherlands has been ranked the greenest country in Europe in terms of transport many times (thanks to their cheap and well-connected train network).

Although car density among the Dutch is low, their best-selling cars are largely EVs (Tesla Model Y, Toyota Yaris, Volvo XC40, and Kia Nero).

Dutch company Lightyear is developing solar-powered cars, part of the nation’s electric vehicle innovations.

Liverpool Captain Virgil van Dijk is renowned as one of the best defenders in the world, and the only one to have won UEFA Men’s Player of the Year.

Like most footballers, he also likes a nice car.

Image: Motorway

Tesla is also extremely popular in Austria – perhaps more to do with its luxury status than its green credentials.

Volkswagen, Skoda, and BMW continue to dominate the market – and star player Marko Arnautović, who’s competed in over 100 games for Austria, is known to be a fan of customised, luxury European cars by BMW, Mercedes, and more.

⭐ David Alaba, who plays defence and midfield, drives a sleek Audi S8. Just as stunning standing still as burning rubber, the average estimated value on Motorway of the S8 is £61,600.

Group E:

Fast facts: Belgium will be a team to watch in Group E of the Euros, as a runner-up team in 1980. Slovakia, Romania, and Ukraine have never won the Euros, but could 2024 be the year?


Image: Motorway

All eyes will be on Belgian player Kevin de Bruyne, two-time Player of the Season in the Premier League and major supercar fan!

His fleet includes the Rolls-Royce Ghost, also favoured by Ronaldo, as well as a Range Rover Sport, Audi Q5, Mercedes GLE Coupe and G63 luxury SUV.

His sporty choice is the Ferrari 488, which can do 0-62mph in just three seconds.

⭐ De Bruyne’s favourite set of wheels, a bespoke Audi Q5 dazzles on the road. The Q5 is a stylish and popular choice with dealers too. The average estimated value of Q5s sold on Motorway is £27,900.

From 2026, Volvo will be producing EVs in Slovakia.

They join Kia and Peugeot who already manufacture in the country. Slovakia has some of the highest automotive productivity in the world, with over 12 cars made per year by each worker.

Image: Motorway

Ukraine are due to play their Group E counterparts in Munich, Düsseldorf, and Stuttgart in June after beating Bosnia & Herzegovina and Iceland to earn their place. In 2020 they placed in the quarter-finals, so they could be a team to watch this year.

⭐ Luxury fans should check out defender Oleksandr Zinchenko’s fleet, which contains an impressive Rolls Royce Cullinan. The formidable icon has an equally iconic estimated value on Motorway: £239,000*.

Group F:

Fast facts: Portugal and Czechia both sport one win and one runner-up place, more recently for Portugal than for Czechia, While Turkey and Georgia have never won the Euros.

This Euros will be Ronaldo’s 11th major international tournament for Portugal.

As the most capped male player in international football history, the Portugal games are certain to be among the most-watched.

It’s known to include: a Rolls-Royce Cullinan, a Ferrari F12 TDF, a Lamborghini Aventador, a Maserati GranCabrio, a Porsche 911 Turbo S, a Ferrari F430, a Mercedes Brabus G65, an Audi RS7, a Bentley Continental...

⭐ But his very flashest car is the famous Bugatti Centodieci, rumoured to be worth about £6,000,000*


Image: Motorway

One of the most popular makes in Turkey is Mercedes-Benz, and midfielder Hakan Çalhanoğlu benefits from their sponsorship in his home country.
