Khabib Nurmagomedov's car collection includes £150k Ferrari, £138k Mercedes and a Lada he sold to fund his MMA career

SINCE emerging in UFC, Khabib Nurmagomedov has enjoyed a lifestyle accustomed to a leading MMA star.


The Eagle, back in action at UFC 254 against Justin Gaethje on Saturday, has accumulated a reported wealth of £23million as he's lit up theUFC Lightweight champion.

And with that money he's bought himself a collection of motors befitting of a champion.

From his first car – a Lada Priora – to a fast Ferrari, here's a look at Khabib's amazing car collection.

LADA PRIORA

When Khabib got his driving licence in his Russian homeland of Dagestan, he bought his first car – a Lada Priora.

Valued at just over £2,000, it's an affordable car that's got either 98-hp 1.6-liter inline 4 or a larger, 120-hp 1.8-liter unit.

It's not known for being speedy – but is certainly reliable.

However, he didn't own it long reportedly selling it to fund a career in MMA.

Sounds like it was worth it!

MERCEDES-BENZ W124 300E

Khabib always wanted to own a Mercedes.

And when he started making money, he spent it on a 300E model that today is worth £5,000 second hand.

Launched in 1987, it boasts 178 horse power and can reach a top speed of 135 mph.

Sadly for Khabib, the car was written off in an accident. But he stuck with Mercedes.

MERCEDES-BENZ AMG-GT

With friends in high places, Khabib didn't even pay for his next ride.

When Khabib began to make a name for himself in the UFC, a Russian billionaire wanted to thank him for his efforts in putting the country on the map in MMA.

So, the money-man bought him a AMG-GT for around £138,000 that comes complete with a V8 twin-turbocharged engine.

But Khabib hasn't had much luck with Mercedes. A friend who borrowed it reportedly wrapped the classy motor around a pole.

FERRARI CALIFORNIA

Every sports star, one day, wants to be behind the steering wheel of a Ferrari.

It's what dreams are made of.

And Khabib has been seen driving a Ferrari California worth around £150,000, although it's unclear if he leased it or owned it.

Capable of reaching 193 mph (0-60 mph in four seconds), it's the ultimate boys' toy.

BMW 6 SERIES

When his career took off, Khabib invested in a couple of BMW 6 Series runners.

And you can't go wrong with the German manufacturer's popular motor that start's new at around £42,000.

First launched in 2004, BMW stopped selling the 6 Series in 2018.

However, it is not known what exact models Khabib bought.

TOYOTA LAND CRUISER J200

Believed to be the most recent addition to Khabib's garage is the Land Cruiser J200 – with a base model costing £65,000.

It's one of Toyota's most popular models, with their off-road SUV their longest running series, and they car giants sponsor Khabib.

Boasting a 4.0 litre V6 engine it gets up to 245 horse power and is one of the finest all-terrain vehicles around.

That's why it is the vehicle of choice of United Nations and NATO forces.

Now, there's another force behind it – one of the finest MMA stars of his generation.
