Automotive YouTubers have access to some of the most incredible, most expensive cars on a day-to-day basis for their channels. But those that own their own car collections are the most impressive. 

Ranging from multi-million dollar hypercars to Japanese drifting legends and classic American icons, YouTubers such as AdamLZ, TheStradman, and Shmee150 have some of the best car collections on the internet.

Occasionally they will film a ‘behind the scenes’ tour of their garage or speak about their collection.

We’ve gathered videos and information on some of the best YouTubers garages to bring together this top-5 rundown of the best car collections on YouTube.

Adam LZ’s massive garage tour

Well-known for his drifting videos and insane car builds; Adam must have one of the biggest and most diverse collections of cars of any YouTuber.

Ranging from his insane 1000hp Toyota Chaser drift car to his Porsche GT3 RS and a multitude of other classic Japanese metal, it’s fair to say Adam has a varied taste in cars.

Widely praised for the variety in his collection compared to other YouTubers, it’s refreshing to see a major character such as Adam not simply collect the most expensive or fastest cars, instead, he either buys or builds cars with a story which keeps his collection diverse.

DailyDrivenExotics crazy supercar collection

If AdamLZ has one of the most varied collections, Damon of DailyDrivenExotics must have one of the most Lamborghini-focused garages.

Featuring his infamous widebody ‘Tire Slayer’ Lamborghini Huracan, Damon’s collection also plays host to an incredibly rare manual Lamborghini Murcielago LP640. Alongside the Lambos, Damon also has a McLaren 720 and, up until recently, a 2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette.

TheStradmans purple-themed fleet

Admittedly this one may be cheating slightly, as since this video TheStradman has sold a majority of his cars to fund his new hypercar, as well as build his new house.

That having been said, at its peak, TheStradman’s car collection was one of the most recognizable and varied of any mainstream YouTubers, ranging from Supercars to lifted trucks and hot hatches.

Highlights include the ‘purple army’ composed of the Lamborghini Aventador, lifted Jeep and widebody Toyota Supra, alongside the 2nd generation Ford GT and of course, the Ferrari 430 Challenge car.

Shmee150’s incredible supercar garage

In his 10 years of making YouTube videos, Shmee150 has amassed one of the most impressive and most expensive car collections of any UK YouTuber, with over 12 supercars and high-performance cars in his fleet.

Ranging from the absolutely insane Ford GT to his McLarens, AMGs, Ferraris, and customized G-Class, Shmee has a car for any style and any occasion.

Perhaps the best thing about his collection is that it gets used, with numerous videos showing him thrashing his cars around the infamous Nurburgring and taking them on massive inter-continental road trips.

Manny Khoshbin’s mind-blowing car collection

Last but not least, is the absolutely mind-blowing collection of Manny Khoshbin.

Making everyone else on this list look like a small-time car dealer, Manny’s garage tour will leave you speechless thanks to his collection of the world’s most expensive and best-known supercars and hypercars.

Very few people can say they have a Bugatti Veyron in their collection, but Manny can say his sits alongside a McLaren P1, Pagani Huayra, and various other legendary supercars that you usually see in museums, not in one owner’s personal collection.

Cadillac backs TSM in car company’s very first esports partnership

Popular esports and entertainment organization Team SoloMid — more commonly known as TSM — has announced a partnership with luxury auto brand Cadillac in the car company’s first-ever esports venture.

On January 11, TSM announced its exclusive partnership with Cadillac, marking the very first time the esteemed automotive company has entered such a business venture with competitive gaming groups.

The initiative kicked has off with a special TSM jersey featuring the Cadillac logo — a swanky fit that the organization flexed in a tweet revealing their latest money move.

That’s not all; according to TSM’s press release, their newfound partnership will also include some very special features for their fans, such as “access to exclusive streaming events, custom video and social media content, and experiential events and activations at the brand new, state-of-the-art TSM Performance Center.”

It looks like there’s a lot to be excited for, and even Cadillac is jazzed to be part of the proceedings, according to GM’s Manager of Emerging Media and Partnerships, Bryan Steele.

“Cadillac is excited to enter the esports space as part of the TSM family,” Steele said of the development. “Whether on the road, or on the Rift, our organizations place an incredibly high value on innovation and craftsmanship. Given our shared values, and the pedigree of Cadillac and TSM, it was a natural fit to team up with one of the most decorated esports teams in the world.”

While TSM might be Cadillac’s first esports partnership, this isn’t the first time a luxury car brand has gotten involved with an esports group; in November 2020, Chinese car brand Haval partnered with Epic Esports Events for their EPIC League Dota 2 initiative.

Just a month prior to Haval’s own initiative, Mazda entered a deal with Hellraisers. Other auto brands similarly involved with esports include Honda with Riot Games’ LCS and Team Liquid, McLaren with DragonX, Audi with Astralis Group, and Kia with the LEC.

It seems that more and more car companies are looking to get in on the action that competitive gaming brings. Who knows — it would be really cool to see a special TSM-wrapped Cadillac someday.
