Lewis Hamilton shows off his remarkable car collection

Lewis Hamilton boasts an impressive selection of supercars and hypercars.

Lewis Hamilton’s future in Formula 1 has been a major talking point this year, with just a few months left on his contract and no news of an extension being agreed.

However, Hamilton wasn’t focused on his day job when he allowed the press into his home to take a look at his private collection of cars – worth an estimated £13 million.

The British driver has been open about the fact he is eco-conscious, meaning that these impressive vehicles don’t get much use.

Hamilton’s collection is divided between garages at his homes in Monaco and Los Angeles, with a wide variety of cars.

Formerly among this collection was a $1.6 million Pagani Zonda 760 LH, a bespoke model manufactured for the then-World Champion, who sold it off later in 2021.

The Pagani is capable of reaching 0-100km/h in three-and-a-half seconds and was fitted with a manual gearbox at the request of the British racer.

Hamilton commented: “The Zonda is terrible to drive!

“It’s the best-sounding car I own, but handling-wise it’s the worst” – this may explain why he pawned it off.

Otherwise, Hamilton shows an affinity for his team’s cars, owning several Mercedes.

These include the Mercedes-AMG Project One, Mercedes-AMG SLS Black, and a Mercedes AMG GT R.

The £2 million Project One is one of Mercedes’ marque machines with a top speed of around 220mph.

Hamilton is not the only celebrity to be a proud owner of the Project One.

Former Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg, and celebrities Mark Wahlberg and David Coulthard, also own one.

Meanwhile, the AMG SLS Black is powered by a 6.2 litre V8 with 620bhp and can hit 100km/h in only three seconds from a standing start.

Interestingly, among all these supercars, Hamilton also possesses the AMG GT R, which was used as the safety car from 2018-2020. 

Other eye-catching vehicles in Hamilton’s catalogue include the Ferrari LaFerrari, a 1966 Shelby Cobra 427, a 1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, and the McLaren P1.

The McLaren P1 may be a nostalgia piece for Hamilton, who started F1 racing with the McLaren team at the onset of his career in 2007.
