Celebrities and their Cars

We all love cars but here are five celebrities who LOVE cars!

Ralph Lauren

Ralph Lauren’s passion for style is certainly illustrious, but it may indeed be eclipsed by his passion for automobiles.  The fashion magnate himself has one of the world’s most impressive car collections, a private grouping spanning nearly 100 years of automotive history featuring the most lust-worthy marques.  A 1938 Bugatti, a 1958 Ferrari Testa Rossa and a 2010 Lamborghini Murielago highlight his private stock, rounding out a collection of automobiles that rivals some of the world’s best.  Lauren’s garage is a museum of automotive history, an archive of performance machines that represent the finest achievements in Motorsports.

Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean)

As Mr. Bean, he always left chaos in his wake.  In August 2011 Rowan Atkinson was involved in a real-life disaster, crashing his 240mph supercar as he drove home from work on a spoof spy movie. The comedy star lost control of his McLaren F1, careening across the median into a tree and a road sign before the £635,000 sports car burst into flames. He walked from the car waited for an ambulance.Nick Mason

When he isn’t busy being the drummer for Pink Floyd, Nick Mason is an avid classic and luxury auto enthusiast.  Mason has a passion for fast cars, luxury cars and competed in the Le Mans 24 Hours race five times.  In his garage lurk the likes of Ferrari, Porsche 962, Bentley, Aston Martin, Jaguar, and Bugatti.

Jerry Seinfeld

You’d probably never think it, but funny man Jerry Seinfeld is a pretty hopped up gear head.

Now that he’s semi-retired with millions of greenbacks in the bank, the New York native finally has time to indulge in his favorite pastime – Porsche’s.  Seinfeld has no less than 60 cars in his collection.

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. 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.
