American boxing champion Deontay Wilder is well known as the WBC heavyweight titleholder since 2015. With a perfect 41-0 record, Wilder is a world-renowned heavy hitter. Wilder was born in Tuscaloosa, Alabama in 1985, and began boxing when he was in college in 2005.
He went on to win in the National Golden Gloves and U.S. Championships. In 2008 he even won the Bronze medal in boxing at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. In 2015, he began fighting professionally and has since maintained his heavyweight title and a perfect record. As of 2019, his net worth is approximately $30 million. What do you do with that much money? Wilder collects amazing cars.
Gator-skin Lamborghini Aventador
When Wilder purchased the jewel of his collection in 2015, the world was watching. The Lamborghini Aventador is one of the fastest Lamborghini models out there, with an incredible top speed of 217 miles per hour.
What’s more, it carries a 700 plus horsepower V12 engine that can accelerate from zero to 60 in just 2.6 seconds. If that wasn’t impressive enough, Wilder’s custom design sports a flashy gator skin finish with a coat of bronze in honor of his nickname “The Bronze Bomber”.
It comes as no surprise that this beauty came with a hefty price tag – it was commissioned from Exotic Euro Cars in Woodland Hills, California for $560,000.
Rolls Royce Phantom Convertible
Deontay Wilder’s classic Rolls Royce Phantom convertible provides a classic vintage note to Wilder’s flashy collection. The convertible is a sleek metallic bronze, in keeping with his overarching Bronze Bomber theme.
Unsurprisingly, the Phantom is known to be the most expensive and luxurious Rolls Royce on the market, with a history dating back to 1925. Wilder’s model, the Phantom VII has a 563 horsepower V12 engine that can accelerate to 60 in 5.1 seconds.
According to Car and Driver, the ride is so smooth, the car “practically levitates”. Prices for a Phantom VII typically start at $400,000, and custom designs can easily cost upwards of $600,000.
Metallic Hummer H2
Known as the Bomb Zquad Mobile, Wilder’s metallic bronze Hummer H2 sports 34 inch custom bronze and chrome star wheel rims engraved with the words Bomb Zquad, and you can see his nickname, The Bronze Bomber, stenciled across the top of the back window.
This is a vehicle for cruising, not for speeding, and Wilder is clearly proud of the country connotations that come along with his Bomb Zquad Mobile. Even with customization, this is likely the least expensive vehicle in his collection. GM discontinued manufacturing Hummers in 2010, and a fully loaded custom H2 currently sells for approximately $70,000. However, there is some speculation that Wilder may have replaced his old Hummer H2 with a new Rolls Royce SUV.
Custom Rolls Royce SUV
Little is known about Wilder’s newest acquisition, except images caught in an unverified YouTube video posted by Wilder in August 2019. The video shows a distinctive mottled black and bronze snakeskin finish similar to the Lamborghini, with a smooth leather interior. Noto mention, shimmering hub caps that sport Wilder’s distinctive logo. The trademark grille and hood ornament of Rolls Royce offer a distinctive vintage note to the SUV’s brazen style.
Deontay Wilder’s bright future
With his perfect record, it’s clear that Deontay Wilder has a bright future ahead of him. At the age of 33, the Bronze Bomber has already garnered a net worth of over $30 million, and is well on his way to his next big win. If he continues the way he began, it is hoped that we can expect more exotic bronze additions to Wilder’s notable car collection.
