From a Fiat Uno to a £50k Jaguar F-Type, the Match of the Day presenter boasts a fleet of impressive motors


WALKER’S and the BBC must pay well!

Gary Lineker, 57, has earned a packet, pun intended, over the years and is believed to be worth around £30m.

His BBC salary is said to net him around £1.75m per annum, while his sponsorship with the crisp giants is estimated to earn the Match of the Day host around a £1m a year.

So of course the England legend can afford to drive around in a nice motor.

Now Lineker is always keen to boast about his super-smart Jaguar F-Pace, worth around £50k, on Twitter.

But he’s also been seen riding a Mercedes SL550 (around £86k), BMW 650i convertible (around £73k), Range Rover Sport (from £63k) and a Jaguar XJ (from 65k).

The hotshot striker was even spied with ex-wife Danielle Bux in a £20k Mini Cooper Turbo once upon a time.

That means the total worth of Gary’s car collection is worth over £3m – which is nothing to be sniffed at!

However, it wasn’t always plain-sailing for the former Leicester City, Everton and Tottenham hero when it came to his motors.

During his 80s heyday, when footballers weren’t earning anywhere near the vast pots of cash they earn now, Lineker went back to basics with his car choices.

His first sponsored motor when he was banging in goals at Filbert Street was, in fact, a very tiny Fiat Uno.

Rather brilliantly, it had ‘GARY LINEKER L.C.F.C. Drives A FIAT’ emblazoned in bold on the sides.

Although that didn’t stop the goal poacher dying from embarrassment as he happily posed next to the car in the early 80s.

The lost image only surfaced in 2014 after it was shared by Lineker’s pal, snooker legend Willie Thorne on Twitter.

The commentator even teased the forward saying: “I remember this like yesterday gary was so excited to get his first sponsership car how times have changed.”

Linker soon retorted to Willie’s jibe, writing: “Ha! B******!” But the damage to his street cred was already done.

By 1985, when he was at the Toffees, Lineker soon spent his signing-on-fee on a Toyota Supra.

The Japanese car ‘boasted’ 161 horse power and was considered a pretty powerful car for its time.

And in terms of its speed, it was able to hit 0-60 mph in an impressive 8.4 seconds, although that doesn’t sound so great now.

Supras have since become collectors’ items, with some fetching as much as £8,000 online.

That’s a lot more than Lineker would’ve paid for it, of course, which begs the question if he kept it?

Gary, it’s over to you.
