Usain St. Leo Bolt, is a retired sprinter hailing from Jamaica. He holds several records in 100 meters, 200 meters, and relay races along with several Olympic gold medals to his name. The eleven-time World Champion and eight-time Olympic gold medalist earned a lot of money to push his net worth to around $90 million in 2022. Just like he loves to be the fastest man on the track the same applies to him when it comes to cars. He loves fast cars and his immense net worth is more than enough for him to own several of them. On that note here’s a close look at the seven cars owned by Usain Bolt.

Usain Bolt, the Jamaican sprinter was one of the highest paid athletes in the world when active. These days he has spun-off various ventures ranging from a fast-food chain to a shaving company. Along with these his several endorsements are enough to make him so much money that he can splurge some on buying fancy cars. But being a lover of speed he does not buy just any cars instead his choice of wheels are some of the fastest cars of their time and segment. But do note the first car on our Jeep Wrangler is an exception as even the world’s fastest sprinter sometimes needs an off-road capable vehicle too.

7. 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

Usain Bolt owns a black custom 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited which is said to worth 43 million Jamaican dollars. When converted to U.S. dollars it comes to be around $285,000. Considering a 2017 Wrangler Unlimted had an MSRP of $42,945, it’s evident he has splurged a huge sum in customization. Speaking of which his Jeep gets a 3-inch full fox suspension setup and rolls on 22-inch forged alloy wheels. It gets a custom matte black paint job on the exterior and the interior features leather upholstery finished in the Jamaican flag color theme.
