You may already know about Jay Leno’s extensive collection of exotic luxury cars. However, you might not know about the other nine car collectors on our list. Take a look at a few of the richest car collectors in the world – and get a little peek into their envy-worthy collections!
This Pink Floyd legend still draws royalties from his touring days, and he pours a lot of that wealth into an impressive car collection. His beauties include classics by Aston Martin, Bentley, Bugatti, Jaguar, Ferrari, and Porsche. Mason is no random collector. Several of his prize vehicles have a special significance in the European racing world, such as his Bugatti T35, Ferrari 213 T3, McLaren F1, and 23M-pound Ferrari 250GTO.
Wouldn’t you love to be Ralph Lauren? His car collection is so historic, it has its own space in a corner of the Louvre. With a designer’s touch, Lauren has selected and displays exquisite models from the 1920s to the 1990s, 98% of them red. His collection includes Bentley, Bugatti, Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, and many other classics.
If you regularly use Skype, then you’re using technology funded, in part, by Gerard Lopez, a businessman who co-owns venture capital firms like Genii Capital and Mangrove Capital Planters. But this entrepreneur is arguably more famous for his footballers and his car collection. Featured on Britain’s Top Gear, this collection includes racing cars and classics like Porsche, Peugeot, and Bugatti.
The owner of Lingenfelter Performance Engineering has amassed quite a collection of muscle cars. He’s fond of Lamborghinis and has 20 Reventons in his collection. He also owns Corvettes, Mustangs, and Porsche racers in his collection of around 150.
Of course, there’s a sheik on this list. This one not only collects cars, he houses them in a garage shaped like a pyramid. Lucky for us, this temple to the automobile is open for the public! Interesting tidbit: Sheikh Hamad Bin Hamdan Al Nahyan loves Mercedez, and has an S-class in each color of the rainbow.
In addition to the aforementioned sheikh, there is a sultan on this list as well: Hassanal Bolkiah, the Sultan of Brunei. His oil revenue has allowed him to purchase rare Ferrari concept vehicles, a Bentley Java, and the only Cicero BDB Maestro in existence. He stores his collection in aircraft hangars and keeps a team of specialists from several automobile manufacturers on staff.
The next collector on this list is reportedly the richest man in India. Mukesh Ambani owns the most expensive residential property in the world, a 27-story home he calls Antilla. If you think 27 stories is a little much, just know that the first 6 stories are dedicated solely to his cars. With 168 cars, Ambani owns several rare gems, including a Bentley Flying Spur, a Rolls Royce Phantom, and an armored BMW 760Li.
If you’re familiar with Jerry Seinfeld, you may already know that he has one of the largest Porsche collections in the world. In fact, he owns 47 of them. Among his collection is a rare 959, Porsche Boxsters, and a 1955 550 Spyder. Jerry has an estimated net worth of around $800 million, so he’s able to hire a private mechanic to take care of his beauties. He keeps his collection in four garages in Central Park West.
Jerry might not have much in common with the final collector on our list, a man known as Mr. Bean to his fans. British actor Rowan Atkinson dislikes Porsche cars and doesn’t have a single one in his vast collection. His favorite cars include the McClaren F1, Aston Martin V8 Vantage Zagato, and 1939 BMW 328.
What the heck, let’s talk about Jay Leno, too.
If you’ve ever watched Jay Leno’s Garage, you know that this guy loves his race cars. His collection includes Cougars, a favorite of his, Bugatti, and even a jet-powered motorcycle! Like other celebrities on this list, he employs a staff of mechanics to take care of his collection — a collection of at least 200 vehicles.
