Do you love cars? And would you like to own a couple of  expensive and rare ones you’d be proud to call your own? If you do, then you really would wish you were in these celebrities’ shoes right now:

Tim Allen

Tim Allen’s collection of cars is interesting in that they’re not all the typical muscle or sports cars. What makes them cool is that many are quite eclectic and vintage in their own unique way.

And what’s more impressive is that he has a few rides that are actually named after him, such as the Tim Allen Moal Roadster Special and the 200 Tiim Allen Design Cadillac Deville DTSi.

If you ask him what’s his inspiration for choosing his car collection, he’d say it was the toy cars he used to play as a kid. So you can see he’s pretty much gone a long way from playing with toy cars he once had in his basement.

Tim Allen’s most noteworthy car

The 1965 Shelby Cobra S/C, which cost around USD9,500 that time, is now worth around USD2+ million this day

Shelby Cobra

This 800-horsepower sports car is the “the holy grail” car for the serious car collector. It merged Ford V8 engines and lightweight British AC Ace bodies to create some of the wildest and most sought-after rare vintages in the U.S. In fact, any original Shelby can fetch a hefty price. For example: the very first Shelby Cobra sold for a huge USD13.75 million at an auction.

Tim Allen’s other notable cars:

  • Tim Allen Moal Roadster Special
  • Porche Carrera GT
  • Ford RS200
  • Ferrari 330 GTC
  • Cadillac DeVille
  • 2000 Tim Allen Design Cadillac DeVille DTSi
  • 1996 Tim Allen Design Chevy LT5ImpalaSS

  • 1956 Ford F-150 Pickup
  • 1950 Cadillac
  • 1946 Ford Convertible
  • 1933 Ford Roadster

Jerry Seinfeld

This man is obsessed with cars–particularly Porsches. He once had around 47 of them that he keeps inside his USD1.4 million, three-story underground garage located somewhere in Central Park West. But recently, he had some of the classic Porsches auctioned off, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have any cars left. On the contrary, he’s still an avid car collector to this day.

The 1986 Porsche 959 worth USD700,000 and estimated collection value of around USD14M

1986 Porsche 959

There are only 337 of this car ever built, and is considered on of the rarest and most respected first pioneer “super cars” ever made in the world. The price tag may not be that much–but its status is “priceless.”

1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS  that’s worth USD500,000-USD1.4 million today

porsche 911

This car is considered one of the quickest-appreciating vehicle in the world, appreciating 700% in the past ten years alone. Only 49 models of this car were ever produced, so you can imagine how rare it is. Considered a  ‘a race car for the street’, it’s one of Seinfeld’s best investments for all time.

Jerry Seinfeld’s other notable cars:

  • Porche Boxster
  • Porche 993
  • 2004 Porche Carrera GT
  • 1994 Porche 964 Speedster
  • 1973 Porsche 911 Carrerra RS
  • 1970 Porche 911S
  • 1966 Porche 356 SC Cabriolet
  • 1963 VW Karmann Ghia
  • 1955 Porche 550 RS
  • 1952 VW Bug
  • 1949 Porsche 356/2
  • 1944 Porche 550 Spyder

Floyd Mayweather

He’s a boxing champion who loves to splurge his hard-fought money over cars–mostly white and black ones, to be exact. He’s also into paying cash when purchasing vehicles–even those with million price tags.

Yes, Floyd Mayweather has one of the meanest car collections in the world, and his first-ever car after his professional path to boxing in Las Vegas was a 1996 Mercedes-Benz S600–that he still has today.

Over the years, his collection has grown to own around 100 vehicles, with most of them multiple versions of the same model.

The Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita worth around  USD4.8 million today

Koenigsegg CCXR Edition

It’s considered by Forbes magazine as one of the 10 most beautiful cars.

The 1018 horsepower, top speed of over 254 MPH, and 0 to 60 time of 2.8 seconds limited edition of the Koenigsegg CCXR Edition actually features a diamond weave carbon fiber finish.  Up until the development of the CCXR Trevita, it has only been possible to utilize the classic black carbon fiber.

What’s more there are only 2 of them in the world, so it’s as rare as it can be. Sadly, Mayweather is currently looking for a buyer for this car, since he’s planning to buy a $20M yacht.

Floyd Mayweather’s other notable cars:

  • Rolls Royce Phantom
  • Rolls Royce Drophead
  • Porsche 911 Turbo S
  • Mercedes SLS
  • Mercedes Benz S600
  • McLaren MP4-12C
  • Maserati GranTurismo
  • Lamborghini Murcielago
  • Lamborghini Aventador
  • Ferrari F430
  • Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano
  • Ferrari 458 Spider
  • Bugatti Veyron
  • Bugatti Grand Sport
  • Bentley Mulsanne
  • Bentley Flying Spur

Ralph Lauren

This famous fashion designer with a net worth of  USD4.6 billion splurges on an impressive car collection. A love of European classics, his first “car gift” to himself when he became an independent designer in 1970 was a 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SE 3.5 convertible.

And he hasn’t looked back ever since.

Ralph Lauren’s most noteworthy cars

The 1938 Bugatti Type 57 SC Atlantic Vintage currently priced at around USD37.3 million

Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic Vintage

This car is one of the most expensive cars in the world today. That price is almost enough to buy a 1,000-year-old bowl from Song Dynasty sold at an auction for USD37.7 million.

But then again, we’d rather choose this car over an antique bowl in a heartbeat.

The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport World Record Edition worth $1.9 million

Bugatti Veyron Super Sport World Record Edition

It might not be expensive as his other car, but it’s still special in its own right. There are only eight Veyron Super Sports in the world, and is reported to be so fast that it is limited to 258mph. Otherwise, its tires would have disintegrated by then.

Ralph Lauren’s other notable cars:

  • McLaren F1
  • 1958 Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa
  • 1955 Porche 550 Spyder
  • 1955 Jaguar XKD
  • 1938 Alfa Romeo 8C2900 Mille Miglia
  • 1937 Mercedes Benz Count Trossi SSK
  • 1929 Bentley Blower

Jay Leno

This comedian is the number one car collector on earth, and here are the reasons why:

  • He currently is rumored to have more than 200 rare, vintage, sports, and other types of cars.
  • He has over 100 motorcycles.
  • His collection is so big that he has a water-jet cutter, welding apparatus, and sheet metal machines inside his garage.
  • He actually drives all his cars, unlike other celebrities (Mayweather) or sultans who leave their cars out to rot.

His super car with a jet engine, the Ecojet 

Ecojet 

Based on the C6 Corvette, this car was a collaboration between GM and Leno’s private mechanics. The vehicle has a top speed of around 150+ mph, with over 500-lbs of torque.

And did we tell you that this 650-hp dynamo runs on soybean oil? Priceless.

The 1937 Bugatti Type 57 SC Atlantic that’s worth more than $30 million today

The 1937 Bugatti Type 57 SC Atlantic

Almost the same as Ralph Lauren’s, this car is the ultimate status symbol ever made today.

With that kind of money, you can actually buy around 950,000 shares worth of lunar land / moon real estate (no, we’re not kidding), get a Dassault Falcon 7x private jet, purchase a beach in New Zealand, buy 400 Sennheiser Orpheus headphones that sell at USD75,000 each, or have Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, and other Grammy heavyweights perform at your party (many of their talent fees are around a million dollars).

Jay Leno’s other notable cars:

  • LLC Rocket
  • Blastolene Special “Crystal Tank Car”
