AWAY from the golf course, Rory McIlroy lives a lifestyle to envy.
He is settled in the US, where he lives in a stunning mansion with wife Erica Stoll.

Over the years, McIlroy has amassed a fortune – believed to be estimated at £200million.
That has allowed him to drive the world’s most luxurious cars.
SunSport delves into his stunning garage, with motors he has been seen behind the wheel of.
And they include a supercar he bought from pal, Ian Poulter.
The successor to the 360, the F430 was produced by Ferrari from 2004 until 2009.
Therefore, only 15,000 units were ever produced.
It is one of two Ferraris in McIlroy’s stylish collection.
He was spotted driving a black F430 in 2013, with ex-girlfriend Caroline Wozniacki in the passenger seat.
Powered by a 4.3-liter V8 engine, the Ferrari F430 boasts 490 horsepower and 342 lb-ft of torque.
It has an astonishing top speed of 196 mph.
Better still, it goes from 0-60 mph in just 3.7 seconds.
When McIlroy is driving round the sunshine state or to a nearby course he can do so in the stunning Ferrari F12 he bought from Ian Poulter.
Poulter posted a photo of the car in February 2018, saying he missed seeing his ‘old love’ but knew it was in good hands with McIlroy.
Poulter wrote: “When you see your old love in the car park… and miss it…”
“This F12 was awesome, loved doing the Matte Grigio Silverstone paint and also on the rims, and the Matte Black roof… Interior Grey and burgundy.
“@rorymcilroy good to see it looking perfect… He knows a good car when he sees one.”
A brand new Ferrari F12 costs around £240,000.
It can reach 0-62 mph.

By far the most expensive car he has been seen driving, a Lamborghini Aventador is worth as much as £271,000.
It’s the flagship Lamborghini – admired by Premier League footballers and McIlroy.
Flawless in design, it delivers 700 horsepower and 507 lb-ft of torque.
Incredibly, it goes from 0-60 mph in just 2.8 seconds.
Again, he was seen with Wozniacki in the passenger seat in a white version driving around Monaco.
It is not known if he ever owned this Lamborghini.

When you’re an international golf star, brands throw glitzy things at you.
And that includes amazing cars too.
At the BMW Championship, knowing McIlroy was somewhat of a petrolhead, the organises let him drive their stonking i8 to work every day.
Being the official vehicle of the tournament, McIlroy wasn’t the only star to be lent one.
He took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to show off the motor.
Alongside a snap of it parked up, he wrote: “Thanks @BMWchamps for letting me use this thing during the week! #i8”
The i8 hybrid starts at around £106,000.
Although it looks like a racer, it only has a top speed of 155 mph.
It reaches 0-60 mph in 4.1 seconds.

Again, not one he owned – but still he loved driving it.
In 2017, McIlroy filmed a segment for Amazon Prime’s The Grand Tour at a Oxford race track.
He got behind the wheel of a very British Jaguar F-Type, for a Celebrity Face Off feature.
McIlroy raced around the track to record a quicker time than heiress Paris Hilton.
He managed to beat the reality TV star’s time by around four seconds, and we’re not surprised.
The F-Type can reach a top speed of 186mph.
It can also reach 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds, making it faster than the i8.

more Sport features
McIlroy’s affiliation with BMW began in 2013.
It’s worth nothing this was also the first fully electric motor we saw him drive.
It was lent to him in the run up to the BMW Championship of that year.
When it launched originally, it came with a base price of around £35,000.
However, the model has since been discontinued from 2021, with BMW concentrating on their SUV range for electric vehicles.
Fully charged, it can reach a range of 153 milies.
It can from 0-60 mph in 6.6 seconds, so it’s quite zippy for an electric motor.

Range Rover Sport
In 2014, McIlroy’ professional life went from strength to strength.
He won the The Open Championship, so how best to celebrate than with a new motor.
He splashed the cash on a souped Range Rover Sport that was customised by Overfinch, and was seen taking it for a spin in Belfast.
It was reportedly worth around £145,000 and looked sleek in black.
The Range Rover Sport is a particular favourite of the Premier League elite.

Shutting down rumours
But, contrary to reports, McIlroy NEVER owned a Bugatti Veyron Sport Edition.
Reports said he picked a grey one up from a Belfast dealership, that was grey with brown interior.
At the time, there were only five in the world.
A source even said it was his “dream car”.
However, McIlroy soon moved to deny the reports in emphatic style.
He tweeted in response to the story.: “Total b*******!”
