Horror Star Buys Beckham's Custom Porsche

6/23/2011 2:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

David Beckham's badass 2008 Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet convertible just sold for a cool $227,000 ... and the guy who bought the ride is a LEGEND in the Middle East.

TMZ has learned ... the guy who made the winning bid is actor/model Adam Sabbagh ... a former "Mr. Arab 2008" who just finished shooting the horror flick "Mansion of Blood" with Gary Busey.

Sabbagh's rep tells TMZ the actor "found love" when he first laid eyes on the car and is "loving the smooth ride around his new home in Beverly Hills."

Beckham famously put the car up for sale earlier this year ... after reportedly spending $100k to personalize it with cool things like his #23 emblazoned on the hood and on the seats ... as well as custom deck lid, rims and steering wheel.

It's unclear if Sabbagh bought the car directly from Beckham ... or if it changed hands before the actor snatched it off the market.

He could've bought a new one at half the price, fixed it up and still come out cheaper than this!

It's not a big deal to Americans because we don't give a Sh..it about soccer! However, in the rest of the world, it's the most popular sport and David Beckham is the Michael Jordan of Football commanding a top Salary!


The top 10 highest-paid players:

1. David Beckham (Los Angeles Galaxy/AC Milan): $42.7 million
2. Lionel Messi (FC Barcelona): $37.7 million
3. Ronaldinho (AC Milan): $25.8 million
4. Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United): $24.1 million
5. Thierry Henry (FC Barcelona): $22.4 million
6. Kaká (AC Milan): $19.9 million
7. Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Inter Milan): $19.9 million
8. Wayne Rooney (Manchester United): $17.8 million
9. Frank Lampard (Chelsea): $17.1 million
10. John Terry (Chelsea): $15.4 million

This is a year old, but the gist of it is, outside of the US people actually like soccer! I'm not one of them, but my brother-in-law is Swedish and grew up in Germany and he goes on and on about Fußball; that's football in german!

This purchase is showing-up on websites across the middle east and Europe! It's was obviously a PR stunt that seems to be paying-off!

@ Damon: Exactly. He's trying to impress soccer fans in the Middle-East, not Americans.

@ just because: My bet is on him driving it all summer, then having it shipped to the Middle-East where he'll sell it for more money than what he paid.

"Mr. Arab." That sounds so unbelievably LAME and stupid. Go back to where you belong with your used car.

Hey, I have only one message to folks who are saying that Ryan was running to its own death! Honestly, don’t you think that this guy was maybe having a personal life, a family and friends? Seriously, okay, he was driving fast, but I’m pretty sure that was not its idea to kill himself and his friend that night. We are all doing stupid things during our journey on Earth; okay, he did a lot through Jackass, but I am sure they were not that stupid! I think that Ryan deserves our respect and a little bit of sympathy! I am from Montreal, QC, Canada and I am proud to say that, here in Montreal, Ryan, was an idol for many young childs! I am 32…!!! R.I.P. Ryan!!!

@Mathieu - you're a moron. You can't seriously hope that children would grow up wanting to emulate a masochistic side show performer who dragged a friend along with him into a selfish, avoidable death. Credit where credit is due, but please.
