THE Bronze Bomber loves his motors.
Deontay Wilder, 35, has amassed a £30million fortune during a boxing career that's left many of his opponents dazed and confused and hitting the canvas.
And his car collection is also a knockout, featuring a very special Lamborghini, a gentleman's Rolls Royce, as well as a good, old American favourite.
As Wilder gets ready to face Tyson Fury at the T-Mobile Arena on October 9, SunSport takes a look at the Tuscaloosa, Alabama native's fine garage.
It's just as impressive as his famous right hook.
LAMBORGHINI AVENTADOR, £430,000
In 2015, after claiming the WBC heavyweight title from Bermane Stiverne, Wilder wanted to treat himself, and why not?
He rolled up to Exotic Euro Cars in Woodland Hills, California and reportedly splashed around £430,000 on a special Lamborghini Aventador.
What made this Aventador stand out from the crowd was its faux alligator-skin wrap that would even leave Floyd Mayweather jealous.
Boasting cream leather seating, it's also luxurious inside and unlike any Lamborghini we've ever seen.
A coat of bronze was added to the wrap – after all he is the Bronze Bomber – to complete the look.
The Aventador can reach a top speed of 217 mph, and is one of the fastest Lamborghinis ever manufactured.
It has a 700-plus horse power V12 engine that can reach 0-60 mph in just 2.6 seconds.
ROLLS ROYCE PHANTOM, FROM £347,000
Every man of wealth should have a Rolls Royce, after all it's a true gentleman's car. Lucky for Wilder he has two.
His Rolls Royce Phantom is a convertible, perfect to cruise around in with those hot, Alabama summers.
You won't be shocked to discover that the Phantom is the most expensive Rolls Royce available on the market.
Again, Wilder has his custom-made with a bronze metallic coat that's fitting with his Bronze Bomber moniker.
His model, the Phantom VII, has a 563 horse power V12 engine that's capable of hitting 60 mph in 5.1 seconds.
Deontay often shares snaps sat on the bonnet 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 Hummers in the US, especially among the sporting elite.
However, the car manufacturer GM stopped making the Army-inspired SUVs in 2010.
That's now made the Hummer a collector's item, something Wilder is well aware of, which is why he owns one.
Reportedly worth around £70k, it's bronze (again!) and it even has its own nickname – the Bomb Zquad Mobile.
The 34 inch custom bronze and chrome star wheel rims are also engraved with the words Bomb Zquad on them.
There was recent speculation that Wilder parted with his prized possession, but this was never confirmed.
ROLLS ROYCE CULLINAN, FROM £269,310
Wilder's most-recent purchase, he was spied driving the Rolls Royce SUV back in August 2019.
Just like his Lamborghini Aventador, the champ has wrapped the expensive motor in glorious fashion.
His Rolls Royce has a mottled black and bronze snakeskin finish, as well as a smooth leather interior.
The hub caps surrounding the 26 inch wheels are customised with Wilder's now famous logo.
Wilder had his Roller souped up by Dreamworks Motorsports in North Carolina by Adam Wolfe.
The moment it was delivered to him, he took to Instagram to record a video of his new wheels.
DODGE CHALLENGER, FROM £30,000
There's nothing like a muscle car to complete your enviable garage.
The cheapest motor in Deontay's collection, you could argue that it's his most finest looking.
His Dodge Challenger came with a starting price of around £30,000, but you can bet with the custom-paint job he had done to it, it's now worth a lot more.
Impressive hub caps, special side-opening doors and sprayed in shades of red – this motor looks like it belongs to the Fast & Furious franchise.
We bet it drives like a dream too, thanks to a powerful 6.2 litre V8 engine.
SUZUKI HAYABUSA, FROM £14,500
If four wheels won't cut it, Wilder has been known to try two to get some kicks.
Back in 2014, he shared an image of a Hayabusa that had been jazzed up with an exterior that looks like it belongs in a Mad Max film.
The Hayabusa was designed with the sole intention of being the fastest production motorbike of its day.
Incredibly, it can reach a top speed of 186 mph. Opening the throttle reveals its brutal power.
"Imma keep riding my baby as long as the weather's right," Wilder wrote in a Tweet with a pic 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 that's on every petrol head's wishlist.
And Deontay Wilder has shared images on social media, zooming around town on one.
Launched in 2015, the Slingshot is capable of reaching 0-60 mph in under five seconds and is practically a street-legal go-kart.
It’s powered by a 2.0-litre naturally-aspirated four-cylinder engine that was built in Germany alongside Mercedes-AMG V8 hardware.
Who knew Wilder was such an adrenalin junkie?
