Automotive enthusiasts routinely keep multiple cars in their garages to admire, show off, and of course, take for a spin every now and again. Yet, in the world of car geeks, some collections take being a gearhead to the next level. We’re not talking about a handful of gorgeous rides. Instead, these collections are known for their range, value, and quantity.
If you’re a fan of legendary motors, you’ll love the truly awe-inspiring car collections on this list. So let’s take a closer look at some of the world’s greatest.
1. Nick Mason
Pink Floyd drummer, Nick Mason, is known for more than his musical gifts. He’s also the owner of a renowned car collection. Mason has at least 40 cars, ranging from a Bugatti T35 to an Aston Martin LM18 and a McLaren F1. He even has the keys to a Ferrari 250GTO. There’s no doubt that this drummer loves his sports cars. Mason even races them regularly to showcase their incredible performance.
2. Mukesh Dhirubhai Ambani
If you thought 40 cars was a lot, you’re in for a surprise. Mukesh Dhirubhai Ambani, the richest man in Asia, has at least 168 European cars to his name. With a net worth of US$78.6B, Ambani has no shortage of funds to expand his collection. The businessman is known for his penchant for elegant luxury car brands, including Bentley, Maybach, Bugatti, Mercedes, and Porsche. Oh, and they’re all stored on a floor in his 400,000-square foot skyscraper home.
3. Jay Leno
You probably guessed Jay Leno would be on this list, and for a good reason. The former Tonight Show host adores vintage cars of all types. What sets his collection apart from the rest is its variety and age. In it, you’ll find models that most people wouldn’t expect to still be in existence— let alone working. That includes a 1909 Baker Electric, a 1906 Advance Steam Traction Engine, and a 1930 Bentley 27-Litre. He has plenty of late-model beauties as well, plus at least 160 motorcycles.
4. Sultan of Brunei, Hassanal Bolkiah
The 29th Sultan of Brunei, Hassanal Bolkiah, has amassed an unbelievably massive car collection. He’s the owner of the largest private car collection in the world. That includes over 7,000 cars with an estimated combined value of $5B.
We can’t list every single car for you, but we can tell you that it’s famous for its value and the rarity of vehicles. In it, you’ll encounter multiple Ferrari F40s, McLaren F1s, Bugatti EB 110s, and Rolls-Royces.
5. Floyd Mayweather
Retired undefeated boxing champion, Floyd Mayweather, really does a one-two punch with his car collection. First, he’s not shy about purchasing multiple models. Mayweather has bought 100 supercars, including Bugattis, and one of only two CCXR Trevitas in the world. Second, he prefers his cars to be white. He has a few models in different colors, but Mayweather thinks exotic, expensive cars are knockouts in white.
6. The Rainbow Sheik
Sheikh Hamad Bin Hamdan Al Nahyan is a member of the ruling royal family of the United Arab Emirates. He’s better known as the Rainbow Sheikh, due to his love of all colors on the spectrum. His famous car collection isn’t full of exotic supercars though. Instead, you’ll find Mercedes monster trucks, Jeeps, a Dodge Power Wagon, Cadillacs, Novas, and Firebirds.
The Rainbow Sheikh houses all of his cars in an ancient Pyramid. Yes, he had it converted into a garage.
