THE Bronze Bomber loves its engines.
Deontay Wilder, 36, has amassed a fortune during a boxing career that has left many of his opponents dazed and confused, hitting the canvas.
His car collection is stunning too, including a very special Lamborghini, a gentlemen’s Rolls Royce and a good old American favourite.
As Wilder returns against Robert Helenius over the weekend, SunSport takes a look at the Alabama native’s beautiful garage.
It’s just as impressive as his famous right hook.
LAMBORGHINI AVENTADOR, £430,000
After winning the WBC heavyweight title from Bermane Stiverne in 2015, Wilder wanted to treat himself — and why not?
He rolled over to Exotic Euro Cars in Woodland Hills, California and reportedly splashed out around £430,000 on a custom Lamborghini Aventador.
What made this Aventador stand out from the crowd was its faux alligator skin that would make even Floyd Mayweather envious.
With a cream leather interior, it’s unlike any Lamborghini we’ve seen.
To complete the look, a bronze coat has been added to the foiling – he’s the bronze bomber, after all.
The Aventador can reach a top speed of 350 km/h and is one of the fastest Lamborghinis ever made.
The V12 engine with over 700 hp accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.6 seconds.
ROLLS-ROYCE PHANTOM, over £347,000
Every wealthy man should own a Rolls-Royce, after all it is a real gentleman’s car. Luckily for Wilder, he has two.
His Phantom is a convertible, perfect for cruising in the hot Alabama summers.
You won’t be shocked to discover that the Phantom is the most expensive Rolls-Royce on the market.
Again, Wilder has his custom build with a bronze metallic coat to match his Bronze Bomber nickname.
His model, the Phantom VII, has a 563 hp V12 engine that can accelerate to 100 km/h in 5.1 seconds.
Deontay often shares snaps perched on the hood of this beast on social media, and who can blame him.
It’s certainly a ride of beauty.
HUMMER H2, £70,000
There was a time when you couldn’t move for lobsters in the US, especially among the sports elite.
However, automaker GM stopped producing the army-inspired SUVs in 2010.
That has now made the Hummer a collector’s item, something Wilder is aware of which is why he owns one.
Said to be worth around £70,000, it’s bronze (again!) and even has its own nickname – the Bomb Zquad Mobile.
The custom 34-inch bronze and chrome star rims are also engraved with the words Bomb Zquad.
There has recently been speculation that Wilder parted with his prized possessions, but this has never been confirmed.
ROLLS-ROYCE CULLINAN FROM £269,310
Wilder’s most recent purchase, he was spied driving the Rolls-Royce SUV in August 2019.
Just like his Lamborghini Aventador, the champion has the expensive engine beautifully packaged.
His Rolls-Royce has a black and bronze mottled snakeskin finish and a smooth leather interior.
The hubcaps surrounding the 26-inch wheels are personalized with Wilder’s now-famous logo.
Wilder had his scooter pimped by Adam Wolfe at Dreamworks Motorsports in North Carolina.
The moment it was delivered to him, he took to Instagram to capture a video of his new wheels.
DODGE CHALLENGER, over £30,000
There’s nothing like a muscle car to complete your enviable garage.
The cheapest engine in Deontay’s collection, one could argue that it’s its finest looks.
His Dodge Challenger had a starting price of around £30,000 but you can bet it’s worth a lot more now with extras and the custom paint job he gave it.
Impressive hubcaps, special side-opening doors and spray-painted in shades of red – this engine looks like it belongs to the Fast & Furious franchise.
We bet it drives like a dream too thanks to a powerful 6.2 liter V8 engine.
SUZUKI HAYABUSA FROM £14,500
When four wheels don’t make it, Wilder has been known to try two to get a few kicks.
Back in 2014, he shared a picture of a Hayabusa beefed up with an exterior that looks like it belongs in a Mad Max movie.
The Hayabusa was developed with the sole intention of being the fastest production motorcycle of its time.
Incredibly, it can reach a top speed of 186 mph. Opening the throttle reveals its brutal power.
“Imma keep riding my baby while the weather is right,” Wilder wrote in a tweet that included a picture of the beautiful bike.
POLARIS SLINGSHOT, FROM £15,500
The ultimate boys toy.
Lewis Hamilton and Shaquille O’Neal also own the three-wheeled Polaris Slingshot, which is on every petrolhead’s wish list.
And Deontay Wilder shared pictures on social media, zooming in on one of the city.
Introduced in 2015, the Slingshot can do 0-60mph in under five seconds and is effectively a street-legal go-kart.
It is powered by a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that was built in Germany along with Mercedes-AMG V8 hardware.
Who knew Wilder was such an adrenaline junkie?
