Dana White’s stunning car collection features a £210k Ferrari, £20k custom-made Harley and a Bombardier jet – The SunMarch 27, 2021
UFC chief Dana White is loving life right now.
Swimming in the riches of a sport he helped make the fastest growing, he has amassed a fortune in the region of £500million.
He, of course, has a luxury abode in Las Vegas, not to mention an incredibly swanky office. But it's not just property White splashes his cash on.
Through the years, the boss of MMA has bought some of the world's most expensive and classy motors, bikes, and he only flies private.
Here's a guide to this boys' toys.
MAKE MINE A HARLEY
As one of UFC's proud sponsors, Harley Davidson were always going to look after bike-lover White.
And he has made no secret of his love for the legendary motorbike brand – seen on his reality TV show 'Dana White: Lookin' For A Fight' riding one in all its glory.
That was a gift from Harley Davidson in 2014 that features the UFC logo on the side, and comes with a starting price of £20,000.
DUCATI AND AGUSTA
After he got his first Harley Davidson, White began to become fascinated with motorbikes.
He soon invested in a stunning Ducati bike that also featured UFC insignia on its side, as well as a MV Agusta F4.
The latter, a limited edition model, is worth around £23,000, and has a top speed of 193mph.
With a definite need for speed, White loves his cars to be as fast as his bikes.
And as a young man he dreamed of owning a Ferrari, and made a vow to himself if he struck it rich he would treat himself to one.
His first was a classic red Ferrari Testarossa, as made famous by Tom Selleck in Magnum P.I.
In 1989, when it was first released, it cost a staggering £180,000.
White also added a black Ferrari Spider F430 to his collection that cost around £210,000.
Underneath its bonnet, is a 4.3 L V8 engine that's capable of powering the F430 from 0-60mph in just 3.6 seconds.
HIS FIRST CAR
“My first car was my worst car. It was rusted out Datsun B210”, White told Dubmagazine.com.
He also revealed how the muffler continually fell off the exhaust and the sound it would make would be excruciating.
Today, the Datsun B210 is considered a vintage motor – and somewhat of a collector's item.
However, it reminds White of where he was when he first bought it – not living the high-life he's since become accustomed to.
THE MUSCLE CAR
Every proud American wants to own a muscle car, and White is no exception.
So when US reality TV show MuscleCar offered to make him a 1971 Plymouth Barracuda, he was happy to accept.
It's one of his prized possessions, and he and UFC commentator Joe Rogan both have one.
Aesthetically pleasing, it's not as quick as his bikes or Ferraris.
It goes 0-60mph in 5.8 seconds, and has a top speed of 155mph.
WHEN KHABIB COPIED HIM
In terms of a luxury ride, White's favoured choice is a BMW M6 Gran Coupe, which has a starting price of around £115,000.
Often, he's driving it to events and parking it in the car for UFC's talent, however that can also backfire.
Cheeky Khabib Nurmagomedov once gave the motor a makeover by adding a fur hat to its bonnet.
But White had the last laugh, mind. Khabib was actually quite enamoured by White's BMW and bought the same one for himself months later.
Being a motor aficionado, and incredibly generous, White is adamant his sons should have nice rides too.
And when they turned 16, he gave them the keys to these glorious machines.
He bought eldest son Aidan a customised, tripped out Defender Works V8 70th Anniversary Edition for around £180,000, a collector's item with just 150 made.
Then, when Dana Jr celebrated his milestone birthday he was treated by his dad to a BMW M6 with a price tag of around £125,000.
The BMW M6 is capable of reaching 0-60mph in 4.2 seconds.
When you're boss of a billion-dollar franchise, the only way to fly is private.
That's why whenever White is on business, he takes his Bombardier jet on his travels with him.
Ranging from £3million to £90million, it's the ultimate indulgence, but you better be careful who you travel with.
Once, White invited one of his heroes Mike Tyson on board, and the pair got into a hilarious prank that went viral.
Tyson tapped White on the shoulder, telling him to give up his seat so he could sit down.
Of course, White duly obliged and told the former heavyweight champ to enjoy his luxury flight. Later Tyson scrawled 'd***' for kicks on White's forehead during the flight.
