Here's Cristiano Ronaldo stylin' and profilin' in front of his new supercar ... a Ferrari F12tdf that costs over $500k -- and that's without the crazy specs CR7 no doubt added on.

Ronaldo's already got tens of millions of dollars in his garage -- from Lambos to Astons to Porsches ... his biggest splurge before this one was a Bugatti Chiron worth around $3 MIL.

The only athlete we can think of with a comparable car collection is Floyd Mayweather -- who's spent more than $12 MIL on fancy whips ... and that doesn't count his TWO private jets.

Not that they're competing or anything ...
