Conor McGregor has just acquired a luxury Lamborghini yacht worth £2.7 million (R58 million), The Sun reports.
The former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion brought the world to notice on his social media handle about his new purchase.
The yacht has been dubbed the Supercar of the Sea and was built by Italian Sea Group and Tecnomar for Lamborghini.
Only 63 copies of the luxury yacht were manufactured with the 32-year-old buying the 12th in homage of his fast-selling whiskey brand, Twelve.
The Notorious already uploaded a number of photos on Instagram of the 24 ton, 63ft-long Lamborghini Tecnomar 63.
McGregor along with his partner Dee Delvin along with their two children posed with the 24 ton, 63-ft long Lamborghini Tecnomar 63 at the headquarters of the manufacturing company.
Captioning his post, the Irishman said:
"The No.12 “McGregor edition” @tecnomaryachts @lamborghini. Lamborghini’s first entry into the Sport Yacht World comes in the form of this 63foot, 4000bhp, duel engine, twin turbo, rocket ship!
"Titled the 'Supercar of the Sea', I am honoured to secure the Number 12 edition of just 63 to be made. 1963 being the year Lamborghini first began, and 12 being, well you know Twelve!
"Proper f****** Twelve baby! Ain’t no stopping it! @properwhiskey. Thank you Giuseppe Constantino and the entire team at “The Italian Sea Group” for your amazing work! Excited to see the finished result during next seasons yachting season."
Since his loss to Khabib Nurmangomedov in 2018, McGregor returned to the Octagon in January 2020 to defeat Donald Cerrone in just 45 seconds. Afterward, the controversial Irish fighter shocked the whole world by calling it quits with his UFC career.
McGregor got the biggest payday of his career when he lost a crossover boxing fight with the undefeated Floyd Mayweather back in 2017 via technical knockout. A rematch with Khabib could still happen with UFC President Dana White not ruling out the possibility of a money-spinning bout.
