Dan Bilzerian, also known as the "King Of Instagram," has a lifestyle as controversial as it is enticing. He is a professional player both of Poker and with the ladies, and he constantly boasts about his lifestyle to his millions of followers by posting pics of beautiful women and some of the coolest vehicles around - usually while he's dressed in a dark T-shirt, boots and cargo pants.
Bilzerian is the son of an exiled eighties corporate raider who claimed to have made "hundreds of millions of dollars" but was convicted of violating tax and securities laws in the 1980s. His father now resides on St Kitts in the West Indies, and naturally, questions have been raised over how much, if any, of Bilzerian's money, comes from his father.
Dan trained to be a Navy SEAL but failed to graduate. No need to feel sorry for him though, he went on to become a poker pro and is also a self-described “venture capitalist.” He has a collection of vehicles that look like the prized possessions of a prince. What makes it stand out is not just the price - there are by far more expensive car collections out there. Bilzerian owns a varied selection of vehicles that are actually being actively used by their owner, as opposed to having hangars filled with luxury automobiles that have never seen any action at all.
19 Rolls Royce Ghost
What's a car collection without a Rolls Royce? Of course, Dan owns one of the British full-size luxury cars - and it is white, probably so the color would match that of his Gulfstream private jet.
The "Ghost" is actually named in honor of the Silver Ghost, a car first produced in 1906.
The stately Rolls is powered by a 6.6-liter V12 gasoline engine that produces around 600 horses - enough to push the car to a top speed of somewhere in the region of 150 mph, not too shabby for a car that weighs the same as a small house.
18 Shelby Cobra
Bilzerian's $1.8 million Shelby Cobra has an interesting story to tell. In March of 2011, he used it to race his friend, Attorney Tom Goldstein - who drove a 2011 Ferrari 458 Italia - with the winner taking home $400,000.
The quarter-mile race took place at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, and everyone expected the Ferrari to win since a brand new sports car should be considerably faster than a 1965 classic. To most people's surprise, Bilzerian won. However, some suspect that Bilzerian's Shelby Cobra is really just a replica that uses a modern engine.
17 Bentley Flying Spur
In March of 2014, when Bilzerian first posted on IG about his Bentley, he bragged, "Somehow between my board meetings, I found the time to buy a new car." Not a bad way to spend a couple of hundred grand - we'd be happy to get a cup of coffee in between meetings.
Bilzerian's all-black Bentley features a classy red leather interior and is powered by a 6.0-liter W12 engine that makes more than 600 horses and enough torque to tow a small private island. The performance figures are in supercar territory, and the Bentley has a top speed of almost 200 mph.
16 Lambo Aventador
This used to be Bilzerian's Lamborghini Aventador, but then in February 2015, he put it up for sale on eBay - claiming he no longer had space for it in his garage. The starting bids were listed at $400,000 - which is roughly the price of a brand-new Aventador, even if the car had already clocked 1,000 miles. However, he did increase power to 800 horses.
The white Lambo ended up being sold for $450,000 to none other than DJ Pauly D of Jersey Shore fame. A guy who is basically famous for nothing bought a ridiculously expensive car from another guy who's famous for nothing.
15 Range Rover
Of course, there's a Range Rover. What kind of rich person's car collection would it be if there wasn't one of these included? Perhaps one of the most iconic SUV models out there, and it has proven itself to be a worthy off-roader as well - and we all know how much Bilzerian loves to take his vehicles off-road.
The white Range Rover, commonly referred to as a Storm Trooper, has some black 'turbine-style' wheels to match the black upper section of the car - who says the man hasn't got style?
14 1970 Toyota Land Cruiser
What could possibly be a better vehicle for driving on the beach than a Land Cruiser? Clearly, that's exactly what Dan Bilzerian thought as well, as you can tell from the surfboard on the back of his 1970 model Toyota Land Cruiser.
He captioned this post, "It was a glorious day of surfing with the boys."
In another post about this same vehicle, he wrote, "My 1970 land cruiser is like bunker and war child's ride from point break haha." Yeah, we think it's pretty clear that he bought this car specifically for when he's going surfing.
13 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6x6
Another car that Dan has been seen using on numerous occasions is his Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6. The giant Mercedes has been the star of many an IG photo session, both on its own and with beautiful ladies draped across it.
This massive SUV costs $975,000 and is powered by a 5.5-liter bi-turbo V8 gasoline engine that pushes out a maximum power of 544 hp along with a peak torque of 760 NM. The G63 AMG 6×6 can sprint from zero to 60 in 7.8 seconds and has an electronically limited top speed of 100 mph.
12 Eleanor Mustang
Remember that movie Gone In 60 Seconds with Nicholas Cage? Okay, so the movie wasn't very good, but the GT500 Shelby Mustang, Eleanor - the real star of the movie - was quite the icon back then.
It shouldn't really come as a surprise that one of the biggest showoffs the world has ever seen owns one of the most show-offy Mustangs ever created. And to be completely honest, we're a bit jealous. Who wouldn't want this car in their garage?
11 Polaris RZR 900
Polaris RZRs are side-by-side utility vehicles, or UTVs, just think of them as an ATV where people sit next to each other instead of having one sit behind the other. Of course, they're four-wheel-drive - making them ideal for off-road use.
However, they don't come with standard built-in weaponry. Bilzerian dreamt up this unique modification and then decided to have weaponry installed on the camouflage-designed vehicle. He captioned this photo "neighborhood watch," and we have to admit it is kinda perfect for the job, whatever it is he's watching out for in his neighborhood.
10 Jimco Buggy
Dan posted this vehicle on IG in March 2017, and simply captioned it "New Toy." Predictably, there was a ton of comments asking what this "new toy" was. It was made by Jimco Racing Inc. - who call themselves "the largest off-road race car builder in the world," this particular one is apparently worth around $150,000.
Customized to Mr. Bilzerian's specifications and with his goat logo on the hood. Autosfeed says "the 4-wheeled beast is . . . fitted with Can-Am LED lights and wheels big enough to run a herd of deer over without a hitch." Hopefully, that hasn't actually been tested!?
9 Can-Am Maverick 1000R
There's no doubt Bilzerian loves off-road vehicles of all sorts. Here we have a 2015 Can-Am Maverick 1000R X ds Turbo that has been built by S3 Power Sports with parts they either supplied or manufactured themselves.
The base price of this two-seater sports UTV is listed at over $16,000, and it has a 2-cylinder 4-stroke engine, a CVT transmission, and hydraulic disc brakes front and rear. To complete the build and really make it his own, Dan added his trademark pet goat logo on the vehicle.
8 Can-Am Maverick Max X RS
This is a 2014 Can-Am Maverick Max X RS, which has a base price of around $30,000.
It might be an expensive toy, but the professional poker player and venture capitalist had no problems paying for what Can-Am describes as "the world's first factory 72-in wide side-by-side vehicle . . . with Smart-Lok technology, 22-in of suspension travel, and advanced FOX Racing components."
The buggy has an astonishing 172 horsepower at 7,250 RPM and 124 lb-ft of torque at 6,500 RPM, allowing it to go from "0-60 MPH in just 4.4 seconds. We need to freshen up our poker skills so we can afford one.
7 Dodge Ram 3500
There is, of course, a reason for displaying the pickup like this - to showcase its fantastic suspension. In this case, the setting is Red Rock Canyon in Las Vegas, Nevada, and the vehicle is a 2014 Dodge Ram 3500, and it has a huge version of Bilzerian's logo on it.
The suspension, which the photo so proudly highlights, was set up by Carli Suspension. The company's Facebook page describes how the suspension was built with the following: "3" Front Lift - King 2.5", 10" Stroke Remote Reservoir Coilovers - King 3.0", 10" Stroke 3-tube Piggyback Reservoir Bypass Shock." Now, where do we sign up to get a sponsorship?
6 M35 Cargo Truck
Bilzerian captioned this post, "My neighbors hate me?" We have to give him credit for realizing his neighbors probably weren't too excited having a 6-wheeler truck parked on their street.
Actually, Bilzerian used the M35 truck to help rescue people who found themselves stranded in flood waters after Hurricane Harvey struck several states in 2017. There's even a video of Bilzerian driving this truck with flood victims riding in the back. This just goes to show that behind that image there's actually a real person - but we won't go as far as comparing him to Bruce Wayne.
5 Fisker Karma
January 1st, 2013, Bilzerian posted "I was down today, so I bought this car" on his account. The car in question was a Fisker Karma, a premium plug-in range-extended electric luxury sports sedan.
We don't know why he was feeling miserable that day, but it was an expensive way to cheer himself up - prices for the Fisker was between $100,000-$120,000. Around 1,600 units were delivered in the US and Canada through December 2012. Production was suspended in November 2012 when the sole battery supplier ditched the company. This makes Bilzerian's car one of the last to be sold.
4 Ferrari California
In an IG post, Dan wrote "My buddy said he liked my Ferrari, so I gave it to him, a nice gift right? Bye bye dark horse" along with a pic of his black Ferrari California.
Predictably, a bunch of his followers then commented on the post saying they liked his other stuff, such as his Audemars Piguet watch. As far as we know, no more freebies were handed out that day, but it just goes to show how important it is to carefully choose your friends.
3 Ferrari Superfast
Back in May 2018, Bilzerian posted, "Got new car, heard it’s fast" on Twitter. The car looks to be a 2018 Ferrari 812 Superfast model, that comes equipped with a V-12 engine and can reportedly hit 60 mph in about 2.9 seconds. Ferrari lists the top speed at 211 mph, so yeah Dan, we heard it's fast too.
It's priced in the ballpark of $335,000 before selecting any options. Add all the bells and whistles and we're talking more than $400,000. We've been told that V-12 Ferrari models depreciate rapidly, but somehow we don't think the guy really cares.
2 Ferrari F430
When you live in Las Vegas there really isn't a need to own a supercar yourself, there are so many rental options - even if you want to drive on a race track. Bilzerian posted this pic along with "Racing cars today with Baldwin, the buzzard and the baby #shakeandbake."
A day with Dream Racing at Las Vegas Motor Speedway features the world's largest and fastest selection of exotic supercars, letting people get behind the wheel of a Lamborghini, Ferrari or Porsche GT Race Car on the only sanctioned race track in Las Vegas. Money well spent!
While having his face plastered all over the hood is car related, it doesn't have Bilzerian in the driver's seat. The owner of the Burger King NASCAR racing team, Ron Devine, lost a hand of poker to Bilzerian - and rather than making Devine pay up, they made a deal.
That arrangement had Bilzerian’s bearded face appearing on the hood of the #83 car - along with a picture of his pet goat. While the world of NASCAR isn’t known for its subtle racecar liveries, a picture of a bearded man and his pet goat is definitely one of the weirdest.
