If you had an excess of money, and a good bit of time to strike up a new hobby – you’d probably start collecting, modifying and racing automobiles yourself. That’s what these celebrities did. Everyone of them have a pretty gnarly car collection to their name. Did you see some of these coming? Find out which of your favorite TV and movie personalities are cooler than you may have thought. Check out all of the sweet rides!
50. Keanu Reeves
Most of us know Keanu Reeves from his starring roles in movies like The Matrix and John Wick. However, he is an avid car collector too and some of them are a bit off the beaten path. Take his first car for instance. He calls it Dumpy. It’s a Volvo 122 that simply got him from point A to point B during the early days of his film career (1985-ish). There were bricjss jammed in between the seats to help hold them up. Today the car is a classic. He also owns several motorcycles like a 1973 Norton Commander 850 MK2 Roadster as well as a Porsche 911 Carrera 45 type 993. Yep, we told you his automobile collection was unique!
49. Odell Beckham Jr
So as it happens, Odell Beckham Jr. goes more for quality than quantity. His latest acquisition is a Rolls-Royce Drophead Coupe (remember the picture of hom on the hood?). It’s all white with luxurious leather interior and signature hood ornament make it a thing of pure bliss and beauty. Of course, don’t forget he also has a highly customized Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG. Throw that on top of the fact he just bought his mother a brand new top-of-the-line Mercedes-Benz SUV and we have the feeling Odell is merely scratching the surface of car collecting as a hobby. Who knows what he will turn up with next!
For all of his flair as a pop-culture singer/rapper, Akon is more subdued with his taste for supercars. His mostly white collection includes vehicles like a Ferrari 458 Italia (yep, just like Missy Elliot,only all white), a Lamborghini Gallardo, Murcielago, and a Dartz Prombon SUV he acquired in 2012. And just like other stars on our list, Akon loves to customize his rides. However, what makes him unique is he likes to do much of the customization himself. Seems like he’s good with on stage and in the garage.
47. Simon Cowell
46. Patrick Dempsey
Dr. Dreamy from Grey’s Anatomy has an impressive collection of his own. He loves classic sports cars so it’s no surprise to find a 1972 Jaguar E-type V 12 convertible, 1963 Porsche 356 and a’ 69 Mercedes-Benz 280 SE in his garage. If you want to go really fast, give his Ferrari Daytona a whirl. He may get behind the wheel, because like Jay Leno, he believes in driving all of the cars he has to show off their incredible personality. Oh yeah, and he happens to be a race car driver too. In 2015 he won the FIA World Endurance Championship. And you thought he was just a doctor… pfffft!
45. Eric Clapton
Eric Clapton, known for his songs like Tears in Heaven, has an impressive collection of European sports cars. A quick look around and you notice he is a Ferrari man, tip to stern. He’s so devoted that he even had a Ferrari built just for him. It’s based on the 458 and is known as the SPC – 12 EC which translates to Special Project Car Number 12- Eric Clapton. Of course, you will also find a Ferrari Enzo, Dino, 275 GTB, 350 Spyder and 575M Maranello sleeping in there too. Oh yeah, and he loves hot rods almost as much which explains why the 1949 Ford Coupe is lounging amongst the Ferraris.
44. Jay Kay
So it turns out Jay Kay loves European classics. A quick stroll through his collection will reveal the likes of a Lamborghini Mira SV, Aston Martin DB5, FRUA bodied Maeserati A6 G2000, A Ferrari Enzo, classic Fiat Abarth 1000 and, of course, several Audis. Oh yeah, and when you’re finished gaping at the beautiful cars worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, aske to go for a ride on his personal go kart track in one of the many go karts he owns. Of course, you have to get the invite first!
43. Nick Mason
42. Eric Bana
If you didn’t know, Eric Bana has always been a fan of cars and racing (he’s also the original movie version Hulk). In fact, he loves them so much he produced his own documentary, “Love the Beast.” The subject is his 1973 Ford Falcon XP hardtop. He’s owned that vehicle since he was a teen and has since added several other impressive cars to the mix. He loves motorcycles too, and participates in the Motorcycle Riders Association Toy Run held in Melbourne every year. In addition, by the Aussie’s own admission he doesn’t spend as much time behind the wheel of his Falcon as he would like to, but completely restored, he knows it’s there whenever he wants to lay down some rubber!
41. James Hetfield
Metallica front man James Hetfield is an avid car collector. Most of the beauties in his garage would be more along the lines of classic, traditional hot rods. For example, he is the proud owner of a 1934 Packard he calls ‘Aquarius’ as well as a 36 Ford Coupe known as ‘Iron Fist.’ Other favorites include a 1936 Auburn Roadster named ‘Slow Burn’, his famous 37 Lincoln Zephyr named ‘Voodoo Priest’ and a fan favorite, his 1948 Jaguar dubbed ‘Black Pearl.’ So, if you happen to hear enter Sandman blaring from a hot rod, glance over. You just might see James behind the wheel.
40. Gordon Ramsey
He might curse like a sailor, but Gordon Ramsay has a car collection worthy of billionaire status. Following are just a few of his notable rides. First off, he has a Ferrari La Ferrari, followed by an F12 Berlinetta, which is followed by an F12 TDF which is followed still by a 488 GTB. We could continue this list of Ferraris for at least another 10 cars because Gordon owns 15 Ferraris total. Obviously, spending money on top rate supercars is how he blows off steam after throwing more F bombs on screen at would be chef hacks then real bombs dropped during World War II. Still, you have to give respect where respect is due. Those Ferraris are just awesome.
39. Missy Elliot
Missy Elliott can actually flip it and reverse it with the impressive cars she owns. In fact, she owns so many supercars her mom asked her to stop collecting. Maybe that’s a sign she’s on the right track? When mom asks you to stop that’s serious. Among her favorites? A purple Lamborghini Diablo. Pull up to an event in that and jaws will certainly drop. If purple isn’t your color you can always roll up in her red Ferrari 458 Italia. In total, her 15 car collection is worth about $2 million.
38. Wyclef Jean
If you are former front man Fugee rapper Wyclef Jean, what would you spend your money on? Well, in his case it’s cars, and he spent a lot of rapper dough to build his collection. Walk through his garage to spy a McLaren F1, Bentley Armage, Rolls-Royce Phantom, Pagani Zonda C12, Cadillac Eldorado and his famous Hummer H2. Why is it famous you ask? Well, does your Hummer have a fish tank inside? That’s what we thought. As you can tell by the photo he loves to customize his vehicles!
37. Richard Hammond
Known best for his time on Top Gear, Richard Hammond has an impressive car collection he keeps at his Herefordshire, UK mansion. It’s a fluid collection at best, yet always features a few staples like Porsches or Land Rovers. Over the years Richard has seen a 1963 Opel Kadet, 1968 Mustang GT 390, 1950 Bentley S1, 1931 Lagonda, 1941 Ford GPW Jeep, a Range Rover Classic and Land Rover Defender, as well a Dodge Challenger SRT-8 and Porsche 911. Seems like if you spend that much time shifting gears behind the wheel, you would own a few wheels of your own.
36. Howard Donald
Sometimes stars quietly collect vehicles right under our noses and end up with an impressive stash of vintage automobiles. Such is the case with Howard Donald. His favorites include a Ferrari F 40 as well as several Porsches. In particular, we love the 1965 Porsche 911. And, adding to the mystique, Howard now races cars himself. His first was an HRDC Austin 835. Next, he slid over to an MK1 Cortina before moving up to Porsche models including a 1953 Porsche 356 and Porsche 911. That’s what happens when you start collecting cars. Racing rubs off on you.
35. Adam Carolla
It’s been quite a while since we’ve seen Adam on TV, first alongside Dr. Drew, then with his own home renovation show. Maybe that’s because he’s spending time with his sick collection of ex- sport Newman race cars. That, and his BRE Race Dotsons too. In fact, he owns one of the only existing BRE Dotson 510s (the other one found a home in the Nissan museum). One of his more unique racers is the exotic Hawaiian Tropic Porsche 935, but it’s not the only one. His 30 car collection includes a group of 44 race Triumph TR6 cars, the ex-BRE Hino race truck and several Lamborghinis. Seems like Adam enjoys being more than just a funny guy.
34. Gabriel Iglesias
33. Tim Allen
Who could forget Tim the Tool Man Taylor from the hit TV show Home Improvement? As it turns out, Tim is crazy about cars as his character was about tools. Raised in Michigan, it’s no shocker to find several Fords (mostly hot rods and muscle cars) in Tim’s collection. However, look close and you will see a UK built RS 200 Rally Homologation Special alongside several Cobras and other muscle cars including a special order 1968 Chevrolet Camaro 427 COPO with a 1964 Chevelle SS close by. Tim the Tool Man sold a lot of Binford tools to buy these beauties!
32. Justin Beiber
31. Lady Gaga
And you thought Lady Gaga just made a name for herself wearing custom made meat suits and other silly outfits to award shows. Nope, she has an impressive collection of automobiles to boot! For example, she is the proud owner of an immaculate Rolls-Royce Phantom (we’ve seen many on this list). She loves the vehicle so much she owns two of them. She also owns a Lamborghini Huracan, Porsche Boxster, and for classic fans, a mint blue Chevy Nova SS. She even has the most basic classic, a Ford Bronco which she enjoys driving with the top down.
30. Wiz Khalifa
When Wiz Khalifa recorded Black and Yellow it would only be a matter of time before the world met his black and yellow Dodge Challenger (which made an appearance in the music video for the song). He also owns several other vehicles including a 1969 blue Chevelle, Chevrolet El Camino SS, 2012 Dodge challenger SRT – 8 Black Dub Edition and a 1968 Chevelle convertible. But that’s just the beginning. Move on down the list and you find his older rides like a 1985 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS, 2005 GMC Envoy and 1996 Chrysler Sebring Coupe (he blew the engine after only having it four months). Not bad for a kid who’s high school car was a 1998 Pontiac Bonneville.
29. Elton John
We know Elton John‘s music very well, but good luck getting to know his car collection. It’s as deep as it is wide, and they change often when he auctions them off to charity. For instance, Christie’s auctioned off several of his Aston Martins, Bentleys, Jaguars, Rolls-Royces, and Ferraris to the tune of almost $3 million. Some of the vehicles went for three or four times more than they were worth. All of this was good news for charity and better news for sir Elton John since he has more space to fill up with even better cars.
28. Robert Downey Jr.
When he’s not fighting foes with the Avengers, Robert Downey Jr. loves to collect cars. His favorites include a 1965 Chevrolet Corvette, Audi E Tron GT concept (that’s a nice one there), custom Camaro (made for Chris Evans), an Audi R8, a custom Boss 302 Mustang, Fisker Karma, and 2009 Audi R8. Throw in his Acura NSX concept car for Iron Man 3 and you have one of the most impressive car collections on the planet (or universe). Robert loves Ferrari vehicles and Audi engineering, hence his multi million dollar car collection is full of them.
27. Paris Hilton
Paris probably has one of the most unique car collections of any featured on our list. Many think of her as the ditzy blonde, however, her car collection shows her as anything but that. She loves Lamborghinis and Ferraris, but admits her favorite supercar is the LFA she owns. It’s only a mere $350,000 and comes equipped with a DOHC 40 valve v-10 engine that can turn out 553 hp alongside 354 pound feet of torque. That’s 0 to 60 speed of 3.5 seconds. Oh, and remember we mentioned the word “unique.” She has a pink Bentley, so there’s that.
26. Steven Tyler
Aerosmith front man Steven Tyler proves that growing old gracefully is purely optional. His car collection is full, straight on adrenaline. For instance, he owns a Hennessey Venom GT Spyder, a yellow Penoz IV Roadster, Porsche Turbo and a red Volkswagen Beetle to name just a few (maybe the Beetle is not full of adrenaline, but it does have the attitude). The rocker with a strong stage presence loves classic super cars and motorcycles. No wonder he owns some of the best automobiles in the world.
25. Flo Rida
Perhaps one of the most impressive vehicles on our list is Flo riders Bugatti Veyron. He bought the sick ride for a measly $1.7 million, but that just wasn’t enough for him. He had the car wrapped in metallic gold, a move which understandably pissed some people off. However, when you are a rapper with millions to spare, and you want to spare no millions on your vehicle, you build a collection and pimp it out. And that’s the nutshell version of Flo Rida’s gold Bugatti, just one of several hundred thousand dollar cars he owns.
T-Pain is another artist who does a lot of self customization. Known for cranking out hits, he’s put his money to good use buying up enviable vehicles with rather unique flair. For example, he has a Joker themed 1972 Chevy Impala, an orange 1969 Chevy Impala and a super bright orange Cadillac… which also happens to be a hearse. There are plenty of modern supercars tucked inside his collection as well. However, ask him and he will tell you the favorite is his Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe. Odd, unique and amazing, what an impressive collection.
23. Lewis Hamilton
Being a three time Formula One championship winner has its privileges. One of those is establishing one of the world’s most envious car collections. Lewis Hamilton owns a Pagani Zondo 760 LH, a 1966 Shelby 427 Cobra, a Mercedes AMG SLS (black series, complete with gull wing doors), a McLaren P1 with Lambo doors and a Ferrari LaFerrari to name just a few. Other vehicles include various motorcycles and a Maybach 6 which he added to pair with his Mercedes-May Bach S600. Throw in moto cross bikes, dragsters and jets, and you have one massively expensive vehicle collection worth millions.
22. Lebron James
LeBron favors white wheels on white whips, or both, whenever he can. His collection includes a white Mercedes S63 AMG, a Bentley Continental GT, Chevrolet Camaro SS with gleaming white rims and a Ferrari F4 30 spider customize by Unique. He also owns a Jeep Rubicon and Hummer 2. Between his three mansions and Los Angeles and Cleveland, he has plenty of storage for everything. Oh the things you can do with a $154 million NBA contract.
21. Ralph Lauren
So it turns out Ralph Lauren designs more than just iconic clothing for his fashion label. He’s been an avid car collector since the 70s owning beauties is like a 1979 Porsche 930 and Mercedes-Benz 280 SE4.5 convertible (those were two of his first purchases). Currently, he owns more than 70 incredible vehicles, many of them limited editions or one-off type vintages. If you remember, we were given a glimpse of his collection when the Louvre showcased 17 of his private vehicles in 2011 during a four month long exhibition. They are easy to spot too. All of his cars are red.
20. Rowan Atkinson
Leave it to a star like Rowan Atkinson to put money to good use. He has one of the most impressive car collections in the world. For instance, take his 1964 Ford Falcon, a solid classic. Other vehicles in his collection include a 1939 BMW 328, Audi R8, and a Honda Civic hybrid. Of course, the hybrid looks a bit out of place next to his Aston Martin DB2 and Acura NSX, or the Aston Martin V8 Zagato and Bentley (featured). Not bad for a guy known for funny facial features and site gags!
19. The Sultan of Brunei
The Sultan of Brunei has a staggering $20 billion net worth. He also has one of the largest Royal palaces in the world complete with diamond and gold gilded bathrooms. So, it should come as no surprise to learn he has more than 7,000 cars consisting of 574 Mercedes Benz, 452 Ferraris, 382 Bentleys, 179 Jaguars, 134 Koenigseggs, 209 BMWs and a slew of other cars like Lamborghinis, Cicero BDB Maestros and Aston Martins. He even has a few limited edition concept only cars made specifically for him including the Ferrari Mythos, Pininfarina designed Jaguar, and Bentley Java to name a few. The sultan has more real life super cars than most 5 year olds have in their Hot Wheels collection.
18. Usain Bolt
Apparently, Olympic sprinter Usain Bolt loves to bring his supercars home 2 x 2. He owns several Ferraris, a BMW M3, and several more (which he often purchases in pairs). Featured in the picture is him standing alongside one of his prized Easter eggs, a gold Nissan GTR. He also owns a few more tame vehicles like a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Seems like the fastest man in Jamacia also has one of the fastest garages on the Island. We are okay with that.
17. Joe Rogan
Joe has been a successful comedian, TV host and more recently, podcaster. His shows are regularly full of stars, but it’s his love of cars that gets our curiosity engaged. His collection highlight is a beautiful 1965 Chevy Corvette Stingray. During the restoration, Joe implemented his own sense of style and design into the re-fab engineering process. To do that, he employed Steve Troop at Pure Vision Restorations to help with the 50+ year old vehicle.You may have seen it featured before on Leno’s Garage. Just one more beautiful best in Joe’s million dollar collection.
16. Shaquille O’ Neal
Shaq has an impressive vehicle collection simply because of the sheer amount of customization he employs. For instance, he sports a Ford F–650 that’s been tricked out to an astounding valuation of $125,000. Other notable vehicles in his collection include the coveted Vaydor, A Chevy G 1500 conversion van (styled with Louis Vuitton interior leather), a Mercedes Benz S Class, and Venice Roadster to name a few. He also owns a Smart Car, which shows his softer, eco-conscious side. However, don’t be surprised to see him tooling around in a Polaris slingshot or his Dodge Challenger Hellcat. You might even spy him in a sick crimson red Rolls Royce Phantom. Seems like Shaq has it all.
15. Bill Goldberg
Many people question Goldberg as a respectable member of wrestling since he started in 1998 and exited the sport in 2004. However, the Hall of Famer has an impressive car collection. And while we have seen some impressive vehicles on the list it’s his Tahoe that takes our breath away. Decked out in all black, with chrome outfitted mirrors and nice silver/black rims, his Tahoe SUV is one sick ride. Plus, it matches the lean, brash chiseled attitude we have come to love and expect from the likes of Bill Goldberg. Featured above are a couple of his favorite muscle cars. The “G.T.” and “S.S.” should give you a clue.
14. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson
For years, we smelled what the Rock was cooking during his WWE wrestling career. However, now we just want to know what he’s hiding in his garage. Lambo and and Gullwing doors make easy entrances and exits for the 6’ 4 framed superstar from supercars he owns like the featured Pagani Huarya. In addition, he owns a custom built Ford F150 (one of his favorites), and a Ferrari LaFerrari (painted matte white). Oh yeah, don’t forget about his Rolls Royce Wraith and1999 Plymouth prowler. Seems like Dwayne loves the best of the best and we can’t blame him.
13. Billy F. Gibbons
When Billy Gibson isn’t sizzling up a guitar or grooming his beard he loves to add to his already super cool car collection. He leans toward custom hot rod creations so expect to find things like a 1958 Ford Thunderbird, known as the “Mexican Black Bird”, 1950 Ford Business Coupe, a 62 Chevy Impala he calls “Slampala” and a 1948 Cadillac Series 62 known as “CadZZilla.” If CadZZilla looks familiar it’s because Mattel released a licensed Toy model of the car for kids. It was a hit.
12. Reggie Jackson
Utter the word baseball and many people still regard Mr. October as the preeminent face of the game. Reggie Jackson also happens to love vehicles, and he has an impressive collection. He prefers Chevys and has plenty to show off. A couple of noteworthy vehicles include 1941 Willys Steel Coupe as well as a ’69 ZL1 COPO Camaro. He has a collecting goal too. He wants to own every important engine ever produced by Chevrolet. He’s going to need a LOT of cars for that!
11. Lil Wayne
We’ve certainly seen no shortage of celebrities who like their car collections to be in one certain color. For Lil Wayne, that color is yellow (though he does have a few outliers as evidenced by this picture). His collection of impressively expensive automobiles contain vehicles like a 1999 Bentley Armage, Bugatti Veyron, and Rolls-Royce Phantom. If you’re a fan of his music you’ve seen some of them make appearances in his music videos. However, not the Veyron. It’s his very own. The only way you’ll see that one is if you happen to catch a glimpse of him burning up the road.
10. Gerard Lopez
Renowned Lotus F1 Team chairman Gerard Lopez is impressive enough as a person. The Luxembourg-born
business phenom co-owns two firms, Genii Capital and Mangrove Capital Planters. Both are top-rated venture capital firms known for technologies like Skype. He also manages football club CS and is a self made
made entrepreneur. We never knew about his car collection until he showed it to Top Gear. He has more than a few pixel-perfect vintage pony, hot rod, muscle cars and racing cars. Among favorites are his Porsche, Bugatti and Peugot cars. He also has a ton of other Euro-exotic car makers. Just look at the picture, it speaks for itself!
9. Donald Trump
Before he was known as President of the United States or the iconic face of the apprentice, Donald Trump had a pretty extravagant car collection. In fact, he still maintains it today. A few of his favorites are a Rolls-Royce Silver cloud, Lamborghini Diablo (painted electric blue), Mercedes Benz SLR McLaren, Cadillac Allante and Escalade SUV, Tesla Roadster and a 24 karat gold Chopper made by Orange County Choppers.
8. Manny Pacquiao
Manny is a professional boxer, Senator and avid car collector. Pac-Man loves to keep it low key with his vehicles. He has a more refined taste so expect to see modern supercars like the Porsche Cayenne Turbo, Mitsubishi Pyro V6, Ferrari 458 Italia, Lincoln Navigator and Mercedes SLK in his collection. In total, Manny has 22 vehicles with a few surprises like his Mitsubishi Grandis!
7. Kanye West
Kanye has some impressive cars, if he can just hang onto them. More on that in a minute. Walk through his collection slowly and you will notice a penchant for European supercars. He owns a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren and an Aston Martin DB9. Yet, for all the euro coolness contained in the collection, he has had a fair amount of trouble keeping them safe. For example, someone crashed his Porsche Panamera into a Honolulu house in 2010. Ouch! That’s an expensive joyride.
6. 50 Cent
So maybe 50 Cent wasn’t honest during his 2007 MTV Cribs episode when it came to those Ferraris. However, he does have one. Curtis owns a Ferrari F430, Lamborghini Murcielago, and a Pontiac G8 special edition. His favorite vehicle type is Ferrari, though the $320,000 Lamborghini would suit us just fine. Also, he loves the color blue. And to be clear, not something subdued like a navy blue. Nope, Curtis likes an almost electric, vibrant royal blue to be the primary color for his million dollar super car/classic car collection.
5. David Beckham
Most of us know David Beckham for his out of this world soccer skills. Well he also happens to have an out of this world car collection. Among his four wheeled entourage are things like a Cadillac Escalade, Rolls Royce Ghost, and a Bentley Bentayaga. Incidentally, that’s the Bentley SUV if you are unfamiliar. It comes with things like a $160,000 Breitling clock, $32,000 picnic hamper and $7,500 rear tablets. Plus, there’s an event seat tucked in the rear, made of quilted leather which reclines so you can enjoy events from your tailgate. And if that weren’t enough, Beckham owns a few top of the line motorcycles too.
4. Snoop Dogg
Leave it to Snoop Dogg to completely customize almost his entire car collection. He tends to lean towards low rider type vehicles. One of his favorites is a Lakers themed 1967 Pontiac Parisienne. And when we say themed we mean total gold and purple with airbrush detailing commemorating his favorite players. Snoop proves that just about anybody with money can buy fancy cars. However, making it a mission to create your own statement is another thing entirely. For kicks, check out his 1969 Buick Riviera. Why bother mounting a hood ornament when you can use your entire name instead?
3. John Cena
Who knew John Cena loves cars as much as he does acting and wrestling? It’s true, the celebrity has about 20 cars in his garage. Each are unique in their own way ranging from modern super cars to American muscle car classics. So on one end of the scale you find a yellow 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass Rallye 350 while the other end includes things like AMG vehicles (the Mercedes in the picture) or the infamous Ford GT that sent the internet into overdrive when he sold it. Of course, our favorite could possibly be the 1971 Plymouth Road Runner. You just don’t see many of those on the road anymore, and the orange color is just sick!
2. Floyd Mayweather
Floyd Mayweather may not be random when it comes to his professional boxing career, but his car collection is. He owns more than 100 vehicles and often buys several versions of the same car just because he likes different trim models. Even better, he loves to color coordinate. His favorite color is black for Los Angeles, while his all white collection resides in Miami. Even at that, he tends to lean towards modern cars. Walk-through either location and you will see the likes of a Lamborghini Aventador, Mercedes-Benz S 600, Bentley Mulsanne, and McLaren 650S.He even has his own Rolls-Royce Phantom. You won’t find Connor McGregor though.
1. Michael Jordan
Remember the high school kid you loved to see during the slam dunk contest who went pro and became the face of basketball for an entire generation? Well, Michael Jordan happens to love exotic sports cars too. Before he sold it, he was the proud owner of a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 722 edition as well as a 2006 Cadillac XLR-VE. The only question is how do his kids get up the nerve to ask dad for a car to use on date night? Can you imagine asking for the keys to an Aston Martin DB& Volante? Our palms sweat just thinking about it!
