Fred Kerley isn't just a name in the track and field world; he's a phenomenon. This American track prodigy, known for his exceptional transition from the 400 meters to shorter sprints, has not only clinched three world championship titles but also added an Olympic silver medal to his impressive collection.

While his athletic prowess is undeniable, Kerley's off-field endeavors are equally noteworthy. Earlier this year, in a significant move, he inked a deal with Asics, a sports apparel giant with a staggering market value of $5.68 billion, positioning it as a formidable rival to Adidas. And it seems the fruits of his labor are evident, as Kerley recently showcased a new addition to his collection of luxury vehicles.

On Tuesday, the track star gave fans a glimpse into his luxurious lifestyle. Taking to Twitter (recently rebranded as X), Kerley unveiled his latest acquisition: a pristine white McLaren 720s. The image, bathed in sunlight, featured Kerley confidently posing next to the car, its doors flung open in dramatic fashion. His caption, "Price went up," was both a nod to the car's hefty $310,500 starting price and perhaps a cheeky reference to his rising stock in the world of athletics and endorsements.

Kerley's Speed & Luxury

But what makes this McLaren so special? Beyond its sleek aesthetics, it boasts a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 engine. With the ability to rocket from 0–60 mph in a mere 2.8 seconds and complete a quarter-mile in just 10.4 seconds, it's a marvel of engineering. And while this McLaren is the latest, it's not the only speedster in Kerley's garage. The double Diamond League final winner has an enviable collection, including an Audi Q7, among other high-speed machines.

With a reported net worth of $5 million, amassed from his track victories and lucrative endorsement deals, Kerley's success isn't just limited to the track. The Texas-based sprinter's growing collection of luxury assets underscores his meteoric rise in both athletics and popular culture.

As Fred Kerley continues to blaze trails on the track, his expanding supercar collection is a testament to his soaring stature in the world of sports. With each race and each new acquisition, Kerley solidifies his position as not just an athletic sensation but also a global icon.
