A Look into Celebrity Car Collections

If you earned millions of dollars, chances are pretty good that you would own at least one spectacular and expensive vehicle. For many celebrities, one just isn’t enough. With an enthusiasm for cars and the income to support their passion, many big names have extensive collections of classics, sports cars, or other models that come with a hefty price tag. Here’s a glimpse at the top celebrity car collections in the U.S.

Top celebrity car collections

Jay Leno

No list of car collectors would be complete without including the former Tonight Show host. Jay Leno is not only an avid collector, but he brings an impressive amount of car knowledge to his collection. He has more than 150 cars and motorcycles in his collection, which is housed in an airplane hangar. A bright yellow and black McLaren P1 is on this list and is known as one of the fastest supercars in the world. It can reach a top speed of 245 mph.

Ralph Lauren

A name synonymous with fashion and a reputation that spans decades, Lauren can afford to invest his earnings into his favorite models. His preference is to buy unique cars with high-end brands like Jaguar, Alfa Romeo, and Lamborghini in his collection. Just like with classic fashion, Ralph Lauren recognizes that some cars never go out of style. One of his models is the 250 Testa Rossa, which was launched back in the 1950s. It won the Le Mans race three times, but very few were built for the road. The value has been estimated at more than $10 million if Lauren ever decides to sell.

Tim Allen

Home Improvement star and beloved comedian Tim Allen has amassed quite a collection of classic cars. An interesting thing to note about Tim’s collection is that it began with models from toy cars he played with as a kid. Most of his models are classics like the Shelby Cobra and a 1950s Cadillac. Along with the classic models, he also likes to add foreign models to his garage. For instance, he owns a Volkswagen Karmann that was quite popular in Europe but never produced for the US.

Jerry Seinfeld

Another comedian, Jerry Seinfeld has also achieved a reputation of quite the car collector. What makes his collection unique is that many of the models are Porsches. He has more than 40 Porsche models with one of his favorites being the 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder. Only 90 of these models were produced, which makes it quite rare and quite a catch for any avid collector.

LeBron James

Basketball fans know all about James and his unique style. He has his own line of shoes known as Lebron 11. The same liner for his shoes has a distinct pattern that has been replicated on a Lamborghini Aventador. He also owns a Porsche 911S as well as a Maybach and Ferrari model. The current Cleveland Cavaliers player enjoys his modern supercar collection that is as unique as he is.

Final thoughts on celebrity car collections

While you may never be as lucky as these celebs to own your favorite vehicles, it can be fun to dream about what you could put in your garage if you had the money.
