FAMOUS GARAGES OF BILLIONAIRES, MAGNATES, AND POP-CULTURE ICONS.

By 09/03/2020Features

It’s no surprise that some of society’s most elite have an impressive display of the most elite vehicles. Nor is it much of a surprise to see the variations between their individual tastes according to their expertise.

Here are some of the luxury garages from a few of the world’s biggest names:

Bill Gates

The self-confessed car enthusiastic is quite the collector but much of his garage has been kept under wraps. Out of what’s likely an extensive collection, we do know that in 1987, he bought the Porsche 959, which reportedly remains his favourite choice for daily transportation. At the time, the twin-turbocharged 959 was considered the most technologically advanced road-legal sports car ever built, which is why the tech mogul’s admiration comes as no surprise. A big fan of the German brand, he’s also purchased a Porsche 930 Turbo and a 911 Carrera in the past; and most recently, much to the chagrin of Elon Musk, the Taycan – Porsche’s first electric car.

The Chairman and CTO of Oracle, and Tesla board member, also enjoys high-tech automobiles and has quite the extensive car collection. One of his garage’s most prized possessions is the McLaren F1 – designed by Gordon Murray. He’s also been seen driving the original Acura NSX which is linked to the legendary Ayrton Senna, and the Lexus LFA which features a V10 co-developed by Yamaha.

Bugatti is a popular choice among musical artists and athletes, and Jay-Z is no exception. His wife Beyoncé reportedly bought him a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport for his 41st birthday.

Among many others, his garage also features a Ferrari F430 Spider, a Maybach 62S, a Bentley Continental GT, and a Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet.
