While his left leg is pretty banged up after the most recent encounter with Dustin Poirier at UFC 264, in light of the fact Conor McGregor has just taken delivery on his custom Lamborghini Tecnomar 63 yacht… we can only assume his sea legs are in perfectly working order.
The former two-division MMA world champion shelled out an eyebrow-raising US3.6 million / AU$4.9 million for his latest toy, nicknamed the “Supercar of the Sea.” Though we’re also assuming it’s nothing more than water off a duck’s back in light of the fact Forbes recently named McGregor the highest-paid athlete for 2021. If you’re ever curious about what whiskey money looks like – or more specifically, what Proper No. 12 whiskey money looks like – this right here is a fine example.
“I wipe my rich as with your feelings about my work,” Conor McGregor wrote on Instagram, adding fuel to the notoriety bonfire.
“I feel nothing for you bums.”
All in all, it’s not the worst way to spend six weeks nursing a shattered tibula + fibia.
Lamborghini Automobili initially announced its lustworthy collaboration with Italian Sea Group around this time last year. Producing an OTT sea vessel powered by twin MAN V12 engines capable of producing 4,000 horsepower (top speed: 60 knots), the Lamborghini Tecnomar 63 is an ultra-lightweight yacht predominantly comprised of carbon-fibre. It measures to 63 foot in length and weighs in at just 24 tonnes.
With an exterior that emulates the 1960/1970s era Lamborghini Miura and Lamborghini Countach, the Tecnomar also draws inspiration from the Lamborghini Sian FKP 37 hybrid hypercar. As for the interior, it’s what the revered automaker themselves have described as a, “high-tech design based on super-performing materials for weight and function”; showcasing Lamborghini’s iconic clean lines, hexagonal shapes, Y-motif, and fully-customisable colours.
“Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63 is not just an exercise in style and design,” notes Lamborghini’s official press release.
“It represents the vanguard in luxury speed boats. Inspired by Lamborghini super sports cars’ performance, the most significant innovative features at the heart of the concept are speed and the dynamism of lightweight engineering.”
The Lamborghini Tecnomar 63 will be limited to just 63 examples. Incidentally, in addition to the name, length, and production limit, “63” also refers to Lamborghini’s founding year.
