Conor McGregor Adds Lamborghini and Rolls-Royce to Exotic Car Collection
Although UFC fighter Conor McGregor came up short in his recent fight against Nate Diaz, that doesn’t make his collection of exotic cars any less impressive.
Already known to own a Cadillac Escalade and BMW i8, McGregor recently shared new pictures of a Lamborghini Aventador convertible and Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead coupe. To buy both of these vehicles new, it would cost close to $1 million, but McGregor can definitely afford it because US News reported he made a UFC-record $1 million just for losing the fight against Diaz on March 4th.

McGregor’s Lamborghini Aventador is powered by a 6.5-liter V12 engine that produces 700 horsepower and 507 lb-ft of torque. This all-wheel drive performance car features a seven-speed automated manual transmission and it can reach a top speed of 217 mph. Furthermore, the Aventador can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in only 2.9 seconds.
The Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead comes equipped with a 6.7-liter V12 engine and eight-speed automatic transmission, which combine for 453 horsepower and 531 lb-ft of torque. McGregor’s Rolls-Royce coupe isn’t nearly as fast as his aforementioned Aventador, as it takes the Phantom Drophead 5.6 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph, but that can be explained by its curb weight of nearly three tons.
McGregor doesn’t currently have a fight scheduled that he needs to train for, so he’ll have plenty of time to enjoy his expensive car collection, but once he’s done enjoying himself, he’ll need to get back on the winning track if he wants to continue adding premium vehicles to his garage.

Samuel Huist is easily the tallest member (6-feet 5-inches) of the The News Wheel team. He enjoys listening to hip-hop music and loves watching NBA basketball. Sam is also a Dayton, Ohio native and doesn’t seem to mind that distinction as much anymore. His first car was a 1996 Ford Taurus he could barely fit in. Like many young folks, he seemed more concerned about the radio in his first car than actually doing the work to maintain an automobile, so sadly it’s no longer with us. See more articles by Samuel.
