Don’t you enjoy wasting away your day, staring at pictures of other people’s cars on Instagram?
There is no greater pastime than geeking out over pictures of the finest classics and supercars ever built.
Thanks to the virtues of capitalism and online social media, there is no shortage of awesome automotive Instagram accounts to follow, featuring anything from the classics of yesterday, the supercars of today, or the hypercars of tomorrow.
Here are the eight best Instagram accounts for car freaks to follow.
8. Jeremy Clarkson (@jeremyclarkson1)
Many of you will have heard of Jeremy Clarkson, the controversial host of Amazon TV series “The Grand Tour,” and the former host of BBC’s “Top Gear.” Clarkson’s Instagram features quite a few sneak peeks toward the upcoming episodes of the show. Recently, he posted this picture of an Aston Martin Martin DB4GT Zagato and a Jaguar XKSS, both ultra-rare classics.
Clarkson captioned this photo, “Working on a Sunday evening,” meaning that you will likely see these beautiful cars in the upcoming season of “The Grand Tour.”
Upon searching the Aston’s number plate on the UK’s Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) website, you’ll find that the Aston was first registered in 2017, which is weird for such an old car. A simple Google search revealed that Aston has been building reproduction DB4GTs, and Jaguar has also done a limited reproduction of the XKSS, meaning these two cars are likely modern reproductions.
7. “Lord” Aleem (@lordaleem_official)
Aleem Iqbal is no stranger to controversy. He has proclaimed himself a “lord,” a prestigious title within the United Kingdom, even though he isn’t one. In 2016, he allegedly told a police officer, “My shoes cost more than your f—–g wages.” And recently, it has been rumored that he lost his license due to speeding in his Rolls-Royce.
While Mr. Iqbal has plenty of marks against him, his car collection is quite impressive. He owns an exotic rental company in the UK called Platinum Executive Travel, with an impressive fleet, including numerous Rolls-Royces, a Ferrari 458, and a Lamborghini Aventador SV, to name a few.
6. Doug DeMuro (@dougdemuro)
Doug DeMuro is well known for his YouTube car review videos, where he reviews weird and awesome cars and goes over their “quirks and features.” He also lets his viewers choose a car for him to buy, which is known as a “Dougcar.”
The current “Dougcar” is a yellow Land Rover Defender. Previous “Dougcars” include a Dodge Viper, an Aston Martin V8 Vantage, a Nissan S-Cargo, and a Nissan Skyline GTR.
Doug’s Instagram is filled with random pictures of his Defender and other vehicles. He also pictures cars that he is reviewing. He occasionally photographs interesting cars he spots, as well.
5. Classic Car Club Manhattan (@cccmanhattan)
The Classic Car Club of Manhattan has a fleet of epic classics, sports cars, and high-end exotics for the exclusive use of their members.
Some of the more notable cars of the fleet include a Caterham 7, a Ferrari 458, and a Lancia Delta Integrale Evoluzione. Clearly, there is no shortage of amazing photos of unique and beautiful cars on their Instagram account.
4. Salomondrin (@salomondrin)
Alejandro Salomon (a.k.a. Salomondrin) is a popular automotive YouTuber. Among his collection is a Mercedes G-Class 4×4 Squared, a McLaren 720s, and a Mercedes AMG-GTR. Additionally, he has a Lamborghini Huracan Performante arriving soon.
Mr. Salomon’s Instagram is awash with pictures of his own cars as well as other people’s vehicles on occasion. Salomon’s Instagram and YouTube accounts are definitely worth checking out if you love high-end exotics.
3. Joe Macari Performance (@joemacari)
Joe Macari Performance Cars is an exotic car dealer based in London, UK. They have an epic collection of high-end exotics and classics. As they specialize in Ferraris and Maseratis, there is never a shortage of prancing horses adorning their showroom.
Their Instagram account includes pictures of their inventory, as well as cars at auto shows and motoring events, such as the Jaguar C-X75 pictured above.
They’re a must follow for those of you who like to see beautiful, unique classics and supercars that are very rare in the United States.

Liberty Walk builds very striking widebody kits for high-end exotics. While their work is controversial, you cannot deny that their designs appeal our inner five-year-old.
Even though massive wheels, stretched tires, and wheel spacers don’t really help handling at all, Liberty Walk supercars make excellent bedroom posters.
Wataru Kato’s Instagram contains loads of pictures of Liberty Walked supercars, a must-follow account for modding enthusiasts.
