Guided Tour of Jorge Lorenzo’s Monster Mansion – Video
Ever wonder how a two-time MotoGP Champion lives? Pretty well it turns out, as we see in a new video released by Monster Energy and DirtShark.com shows. Jorge Lorenzo let DirtShark.com into his beautiful mansion in Barcelona, Spain, to show where the 2010 and 2012 MotoGP Champion calls home.
The 12,917 sq-ft. home on the Mediterranean has four bedrooms, five bathrooms, two heated swimming pools and two hot tubs – including one on the rooftop. In the basement is a large gym with a full boxing ring where Lorenzo does his daily workouts. Other amenities include a home theater, billiard room and a discoteque.
“I don’t party so much because … I’m a good boy,” says Lorenzo. “But sometimes when I win some races, I throw a party.”
And of course, there’s Lorenzo’s motorcycle collection. In the garage, he keeps a Yamaha R1, a TMax, a couple of dirt bikes. Lorenzo also has his two championship-winning Yamaha M1 racebikes, but they hold a special place in his home, close to his two MotoGP trophies.
Opulent? Definitely. But if you’re a 26-year-old two-time World Champion making about $6 million a year, this is probably how you’d live too.
