When Hollywood celebrities make millions of dollars, they need some vices to spend them on. Luckily for us, some celebrities love to spend it on cars and have enviable car collections. From one-of-a-kind models to limited edition cars, car aficionados are always on the lookout for such vehicles.
David Hasselhoff auctioned his Knight Rider replica car earlier this year for $300,000. This goes to show that Hollywood celebrities and cars go together, a unique combination of exclusivity, style, and enthusiasm.


So, without further ado, let’s look at some of the enviable celebrities who are crazy about cars, and have car collections to back up their passions.

1.Jay Leno

Jay Leno has one of the most famous car collections in the world, mainly due to his show Jay Leno’s Garage which allows him to offer his viewers a glimpse. Leno, a renowned late-night talk show host, has close to 300 cars and bikes and a collection valued at around $50 million.

Some of Leno’s cars are unbelievably unique such as the 2006 EcoJet which is a one-of-a-kind car built in his garage and the Duesenberg Model X, one of the only five in the world. Moreover, Leno also has a 1906 Stanley Steamer, a car made out of wood and powered by steam.

2. Jerry Seinfeld

It is no secret that Seinfeld loves coffee and cars, and getting coffee in cars with fellow comedians; you get the gist. Seinfeld is a certified car aficionado and there is perhaps no car he loves more than a rare Porsche.

Seinfeld only has about 80 cars but his collection is as valuable as Leno’s. Some notable cars in his collections are the 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder, the 2000 Porsche Carrera GT Prototype, and the 1949 Porsche 356/2 Gmünd.

3. Rowan Atkinson

When you think of Rowan Atkinson and cars, you may be reminded of the iconic Mr. Bean’s citron-green Leyland Mini 1000 Mark IV which he made popular.

However, Atkinson has an exquisite taste for cars, indulging himself in classy cars such as the Bentley Birkin Mulsanne or the Aston Martin V8 Zagato. Moreover, Atkinson is more than just a collector as he loves to race (and crash) his prized cars.
