SOUTH BEACH — Ivan Wilzig, or Sir Ivan as he’s better known, is singing hippie peace songs of the 1960s and 1970s, but he’s swimming in cold hard cash!

He just purchased a $10.2 million South Beach penthouse.

Sir Ivan, 61, got a discount on his new 2,9120-square-foot, three-bedroom, three-bathroom unit at 2201 Collins Ave. in the W South Beach.

The new digs have an additional 700 square feet of outdoor living space which houses a pool and a built-in hot tub, and was originally listed for $13 million.

What was it John Lennon sang in Imagine, a song Sir Ivan remixed in 2001? “Imagine no possessions/ I wonder if you can,” that’s not the usual refrain heard from the top floor of any million dollar property.

The move to the W is an upgrade for Ivan, who you may have seen in VH1’s Hopelessly Rich or The Sci Fi Channel’s Who Wants To Be A Superhero?

He’s selling his two 38th-floor units at the nearby Portofino Tower for $6.8 million.

In case you’ve heard his music and are wondering, no, he didn’t make that kind of money from his music.

He’s a wealthy man from a wealthy family and music is his hobby.

His father was Siggi Wilzig, a Holocaust survivor who was president and CEO of two publicly traded companies: the Wilshire Oil Company of Texas and the Trust Company of New Jersey.

His mother was collector Naomi Wilzig, the owner of the World Erotic Art Museum.
