Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton has a very intriguing collection of vehicles.
Lewis Hamilton races Formula One cars for a living, but once he’s done with his day job, he still likes to drive fast. He was suspended from driving briefly in France, having been caught driving at 122 mph, and had his Mercedes-Benz CLK impounded, and had another Mercedes impounded in 2010 for dangerous driving. The two-time F1 championship winner doesn’t have the biggest collection on the list, but easily one of the most impressive.
The Mercedes GL450 is not a car that people might think Lewis would have. However, it seems he wanted something a little different to the standard supercars in his garage. The GL450 is far more spacious than some of his other cars, which is probably a relief after constantly being squashed into an F1 car. The Mercedes GL450 is still very luxurious but it is a more practical option for the young racing driver.
Lewis posted a picture on Instagram when he was in Venice Beach last weekend of his gorgeous Shelby GT500. He posted this snap of two of his most prized possessions, his dog and his car saying ‘beach last Sunday with my Coco, and my #shelbyGT500 #BEAST.’
As Lewis drives for Mercedes it makes sense that he has at least one or two Mercedes vehicles in his personal fleet. He has a red SLS AMG black and a silver SL 65 AMG Black series. The SLS has 622hp at 7400rpm, has a top speed of 196mph and can reach 0-60mph time of 3.5 seconds.
Most recently of which Hamilton sorted himself out with one of the latest must have super cars. The LaFerrari. I don’t need to spout out the details of this car, we all know it’s an insane bit of kit. If anyone can give one of these a good go over any road though Hamilton’s deffinetly one of them.
Although his main vehicle of choice is a car Lewis occasionally likes to go out on his bike.
Perhaps the car that most people are talking about is Lewis Hamilton’s awesome Pagani Zonda 760RS. This supercar is worth around £1.6 million and can reach speeds of 225mph. It’s the most powerful production Zonda that’s ever been built with an AMG 7.3-litre V12 engine. Lewis choose a manual version of this car, and as a racing car driver that makes sense. His Zonda is purple and was made specifically to his personal requirements.
Valued at more than $1 million, this seems like the perfect car to drive his girlfriend Nicole Scherzinger around in (although the couple have reportedly broken up, again). Lewis actually has two Cobras. He recently posted on Instagram ‘These are my other two girls, my Cobra’s. Both 1967 fully original.
As if a fleet of supercars wasn’t enough, Lewis went one step further and got himself a ridiculously expensive luxury private jet, which set him back roughly £20 million. It was reported he bought this jet to make his long distance relationship with Nicole easier, not the best investment considering the relationship has now ended! He changed the official registration on the jet to G-LCDH which stands for Lewis Carl Davidson Hamilton.
