With their endless piles of cash and fandom, celebrity car collections are approaching the stuff of legend.
What do the rich do? Buy cars on a large scale, apparently.
Their purchasing power nets them a $3MM Bugatti, vintage Ferraris, or a fleet of ‘miscellaneous’ Rolls Royces, as one celebrity’s driver described it.
In the meantime, we can only dream!
Here are our top three picks for most impressive celebrity car collections.
With his personal car collection valued in the double digits, Jay Z is known for featuring his impressive beauties in his music videos.
Check out the Ferrari F430 Spider and Pagani Zonda Roadster in the “Show Me What You Got” video or his record $8MM Maybach Exelero in his “Lost Ones” video. Other notables include the daily driver Maybach 62S and a special edition GMC Yukon Denali with its unique concept, the “Jay-Z Blue.”
2. Floyd Mayweather Jr.
In an infamous ESPN segment, Floyd showed off his impressive car collection. Seven cars alone are worth approximately $15 million dollars. Other reports have confirmed the purchase of 100 luxury cars over the years paid in cash. So frequent are his luxury purchases to one Las Vegas dealership that the business invested in a money counting machine for his transactions.
Plus, 50-0 boxer ‘Money’ Mayweather is rumored to own one of only three Aston Marton 177s. Other highlights include three Bugatti Veyrons and a $5MM Koenigsegg Trevita, which was purchased from the proceeds of a $4MM Ferrari Enzo. There are more trophies in his collection: a Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 and a McLaren 650S. His is easily one of the finest celebrity car collections anywhere.
1. Jay Leno
Unquestionably, Jay Leno is the most “mainstream” celebrity car collector in history. Owner of a garage named ‘Big Dog’ in Burbank, California staffed by a group of mechanics, he is rumored to own more than 150 vehicles and motorcycles, securing him hosting duties for his show ‘Jay Leno’s Garage’ on CNBC.
Prized possessions include the “original supercar” 1969 Lamborghini Miura S, 240-mph speed demon McLaren F1, a hybrid 2014 McLaren P1, a 1954 Jaguar XK120M Coupe, and ‘daily driver’ 1986 Lamborghini Countach.
