The £200,000 super car Ferrari Rocher belongs to undefeated WKN kickboxing world champion Riyadh Al-Azzawi.

Riyadh Al-Azzawi is a heavyweight kickboxer from Baghdad, Iraq. He is currently living in London, UK. Al-Azzawi is a current WKN kickboxing Full Contact world champion. He holds the record of 47 victorious bouts.

Supercars are always something of a status symbol and Ferraris come pretty high up even that lofty hierarchy, DailyMail reports.

However, for 5-time WKN kickboxing World champion Riyadh Al-Azzawi just buying one of the flashest cars on the market isn’t enough.

The Iraqi fighter went even further, wrapping his £200,000 458 Spider with gold vinyl – for the comparably reasonable price tag of £4,000.

The Ferrari 458 Spider is the convertible version of the popular supercar which is widely regarded as one of the greatest cars built by the Italian firm.

It is powered by a 4.5-litre V8 engine which, located behind the driver, develops a whopping 562bhp. This gives it a 0-62mph time of 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 199mph.

Riyadh Al-Azzawi won his WKN kickboxing world-champion belt in 2008 and has defended it against all challengers since, he currently has a career record of 47 wins out of 47 bouts, with 35 knockouts.

Riyadh’s ambition is to unite Iraq through kickboxing and to defend his title in his home country.
