Just for fun, here are a list of the top 5 celebrity car collectors and their luxury cars. These celebs likely enjoy an exotic car rental on the side to get a feel for new models available from their favorite brands, but that is not cheating.
1. Jay Leno
2. Nick Mason
3. Jerry Seinfeld
4. Mr. Bean (Rowan Atkinson)
5. Ralph Lauren
Jay Leno. Perhaps the most famed celebrity who loves all that is auto; Leno’s luxury car collection includes approximately 200 specimens, including Bugatti and a jet-powered motorcycle. Hey, whatever grinds his gears, and we all know Leno loves Cougars (the car…relax). Did you know that Leno employs a full time staff of four mechanics/fabricators to maintain his fleet of luxury cars? He also has a complete workshop, and simply calls on his way to work to have the car of his choice ready for him.
Nick Mason. What do you do when you are the drummer of one of the most successful bands in history? Just ask Nick Mason of Pink Floyd, a fixture at the Goodwood Festival of Speed and avid celebrity luxury car collector. While his collection of around 50 exotic cars is dwarfed by Leno’s fleet, they are impressive nonetheless, displaying a weakness for rare and vintage cars. Included in Mason’s collection are a 1967 Ferrari 250 GTO, a 1927 Type 35 Bugatti, and a McLaren F1 GTR. Word is that Nick Mason’s exotic car investment deal is also in the works (follow link for details).
Jerry Seinfeld. Starring in a long-running sitcom that bored the masses yet somehow raked in the millions, Seinfeld certainly knows what to do with his wealth. An avid Porsche collector, his exotic car collection is worth an estimated $10 million. He even has a 1955 550 Porsche spyder, you know, like the famed James Dean Porsche.
Rowan Atkinson. I must spill the beans. While looking at the man does not exactly give it away, Mr. Bean is an avid exotic car buff and collector. Collecting luxury cars since 1981, Atkinson’s fleet includes a Jaguar XKE, a Lotus Carlton, Bentley Mulsanne, MG X-Power SV, Aston Martin DB7, and the famed McLaren F1 supercar he crashed. Bean has stated he will never own is a Porsche. I suppose he will not be comparing notes with Seinfeld any time soon.
Ralph Lauren. Ok so we know that Ralph Lauren is savvy on the style end, but some may not know he is the entire ensemble, down to the car. Everyone knows the right luxury car is an accessory, and each of Lauren’s 39 exotic cars is a true stunner. The crown jewel of Ralph Lauren’s exotic car collection is arguably a 1938 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic coupe, one of just three produced, and one of two remaining. To show the brand’s progression, he also has a Bugatti Veyron. Other emotion-evoking luxury cars in this precious fleet include a 1929 Blower Bentley, 1938 Alfa Romeo 8C 2900 Mille Miglia, 1958 Ferrari 250 Tesla Rossa, McLaren F1, 1930 Mercedes Count Trossi SSK, and more.
I would want to pose next to my luxury cars too guys…
