Turns out the world’s smallest social media star has a penchant for very big cars, with the pint-sized 20-year-old taking to social media to try and sell his pride and joy.
What’s the point of being Internet famous if you can’t sell your car on the Internet? That seems to be Hasbulla (full name Hasbulla Magomedov)’s attitude. The Dagestani ‘Mini Khabib’ has turned to Instagram over the last few days to post photos and videos of his car, offering it up for sale and asking for expressions of interest.
The car in question? A 2000 model BMW E38 7 Series, resplendent in a very tasteful Anthracite Metallic paint job, registered in Russia and seemingly in quite good nick. The car even has its own Instagram account.
Specifically, it’s a 750iL, a long-wheelbase version of the full-size luxury car that’s powered by a 5.4L naturally-aspirated M73 petrol V12 engine that makes 240 kW/490 Nm and will take the luxury barge from 0-100km/h in 7.2 seconds – not bad for a car that’s over two decades old and weighs just under 2 tonnes.
It’s a huge car for such a small gent, which begs the question: does (or can) Hasbulla drive his own car? The bloke’s only 3 feet 3 inches tall, or just under 1 metre. We’re not sure he could even reach the pedals.
It’s entirely possible that he’s outfitted the car with mobility aids, but considering it’s effectively a limousine, it’s more likely that Hasbulla has his own driver. He can definitely afford such a luxury: thanks to his recent UFC deal, the tiny fighter is reportedly worth over US$200,000.
Hasbulla is asking 850,000 Russian rubles (~US$12,200) and says he’s “willing to trade [but] don’t offer any crap”. He also says that it’s a bulletproof model, “from memory”. It could be a steal. Guess you’ll have to hit him up on IG to find out.
