Tyson Fury cleans his £20k VW Passat as Gypsy King shows humble side after splashing out £140k on new Porsche

TYSON FURY showed his more humble side as he cleaned his £20,000 VW Passat – after splashing out £140k on a new Porsche.

The WBC heavyweight world champion is still basking in the glory of his stunning sixth round knockout victory over Dillian Whyte at Wembley last month.


Fury, 33, is adamant that he is retiring from the ring now – although there are still several bouts that could entice him back into action.

But if that is the final chapter, then he has ended his career with massive payday.

Fury bagged a whopping £26.2m for his UK homecoming bout – taking his estimated worth to a reported £130m.

He has revealed that he now intends to make the most of the money he has made throughout his career in retirement.

And it seems Fury is making good on his word as he bought a brand new car at a dealership in upmarket Wilmslow, Cheshire earlier this week.

He arrived in his Ferrari F12 – which would have cost around £250,000 new – but traded in the sports car for a more modern vehicle.

Fury now owns a Porsche Taycan, a fully electric car which boasts futuristic looks and supercar performance.

But he continues to show he will not be changing one iota despite his fortune as he shared a snap of his VW Passat on Instagram.

And along with the photo of his pride on joy sat on his drive, he captioned it with: “This is the best car on the road 2006 iv cleaned her right up, spanking.”

After what appears to be his farewell fight, he delivered an impassioned speech about what he values the most ahead of his retirement and even mentioned his Passat.

Fury said: “Every good dog has its day. And I know Frank (Warren) will be unhappy about that. And Top Rank, there's a lot of money to be earned.

“But, for me, I come from f*** all, I come from nothing. It's never been about money, I'm not a money person.

“I drive around in an 07 Passat on 56 point diesel. I don't care, I don't care what I've got.

“It's never been about money with me. I know a lot of people with money, big money – but none of them are happy.

“Not one of them. And I know money can't make happiness. It's not even been about belts with me, it's not been about legacies.

“It's not been about anything apart from punching a motherf***ing face in on the night. That's all it's ever been about, excuse the language.

“All I ever want to do is win, money aside. Money is beautiful, it's great. It's great to be paid for what you do.”

Over the years, Fury has been seen behind the wheel of a beautiful Ferrari GTC4Lusso worth around £250,000.

But on the opposite end of the scale, the heavyweight boxer has also squeezed his giant 6ft 9in frame into a 1993 Mini Cooper that would've cost no more than £10,000 and has several more motors in his car collection.

Just hours before the win over Whyte, Carl Froch appeared to drop the bombshell that Fury and his wife Paris were expecting again.

Although the family is yet to confirm the news, they have made no secret of their desire to have an even bigger family, with Tyson declaring they want 11 children.

The couple welcomed their sixth child into the world last August as baby Athena battled through intensive care.

The couple's other children are Venezuela, 12, Prince John James, nine, Prince Tyson II, five, Valencia, four, and Princes Adonis Amaziah, two.
