They say that when you work hard you play hard and that’s what Ian Poulter’s game is when it comes to his car collection. The British pro golfer has previously been ranked as high as number 5 in the world rankings, among plenty other awards, so he clearly affords basically any car he wants. His last acquisition is nothing other than Ferrari’s brand new hybrid, the LaFerrari.
By now you guys probably now that all the 499 units were sold even before the official unveiling. Besides the obvious exclusivity and great demand on the world’s newest hypercar, this also means that the owners will be revealed one by one for the next several months or so. Not that we really care to know each happy owner of the more than $1,69 million ride, but like we all expected most of these people are famous.

Ian Poulter is not just one of the world’s greatest golf players, but he also is renown for his huge car enthusiasm. Along with his 2008 purchase of a Ford GT, he owns a Bentley Continental GT, a Ferrari California and previously had a Nissan Skyline and an Aston Martin DB9. Sure, that’s just some of the units we know of.

The golfer’s new car, however, will probably top all of his previous acquisitions, a thing Poulter really likes to brag about. He just spent a full day at Ferrari’s headquarters in Maranello, Italy, a trip he blogged with several pictures posted on Instagram.

However, for a person that engraved a list of his Ferrari models on his wedges, posting pictures with his favorite cars while visiting the company’s factory doesn’t even seem that of a big deal anymore.

The reason the golfer went to Italy is not only so that he could check out the company’s history in cars, but also for a “seat fitting” for his new LaFerrari. Pulter tweeted about that more than a month ago, letting his 1,8 million fans know of his intentions.
