We all love the incredible amounts of top-quality content that is available at the click of a button on YouTube, but sometimes it can be overwhelming. To help narrow your search for US-based car YouTubers, here’s five of the best (in no particular order) that deserve a place on your subscription list.

We’ve already given our list of the best UK-based car YouTubers, if that’s more your scene. But, this time, we’ll be looking at those YouTubers driving on the other side of the road.

TheStradman

Based out of Park City, Utah; TheStradman has one of the most eclectic and constantly-changing supercar garages of any YouTuber in the US.

With his informal and relaxed vlogging style, watching TheStradman’s videos feels more like you’re tagging along as a friend, rather than watching from the outside. Expect plenty of supercar builds, personal life vlogs, and some of the most insane vehicles you’ve ever seen on a public road.

For fans of: Vlogs, supercars, and garage tours.

Effspot

A mixture of sunny Californian car spotting and POV vlogs, effspot is one of the best-known car culture YouTubers on the west coast.

Since almost all of effspot’s videos are shot from a POV perspective, they immerse you in a way that ‘regular’ vlogs can struggle to do so. Alongside supercar spotting in Beverly Hills, you can expect have plenty of retro car content, crazy modified cars, and very, very expensive exhausts.

Seamlessly blending jaw-dropping cinematics, fascinating stories, and grassroots car culture; Krispy is one of the kings of automotive film-making in the USA.

Krispy’s incredible films will make you feel like you’re living in a fast and furious-esque movie; Make sure you set aside plenty of time to fully immerse yourself in these amazing works.

Adam LZ

Adam LZ must have one of the biggest drift-focused garages on YouTube, and while many YouTubers don’t use their collections, Adam seems hell-bent on having the most fun he can with as many of his cars as possible.

While his car collection is amazing, Adam is perhaps best known for his drifting videos which regularly see him blowing up or setting his cars on fire in the name of scoring the most style points possible.

For fans of: Drifting, Japanese cars, and tuning culture.

Tavarish

Perhaps a little different from what you might expect to find on a list like this; Tavarish buys broken, written-off, and famous supercars (including the Lamborghini from The Fast and Furious,) then documents the rebuilding process for you to enjoy.

What’s fascinating about Tavarish’s videos is that they show a side to supercar ownership not many other YouTubers will talk about. Seeing how these broken beasts are dismantled and brought back to life is a strangely satisfying process, and no doubt you’ll learn a thing or two in the process.

For fans of: Movie cars, documentary series, and supercar builds.

YouTubers such as Archie Hamilton are renowned for not being able to leave their cars ‘stock.’ In his September 30 video, Archie reveals his plans for the latest addition to his fleet, the Audi RS6 Avant.

Powered by a twin-turbocharged, 4-liter V8 with over 600hp, the 2020 Audi RS6 Avant is the “ultimate family car.” In typical Archie Hamilton style, however, he has no plans to leave it unchanged.

He’s picked a fantastic base car for his build though. Opting for the ‘Carbon Black’ package, Archie’s RS6 is dripping in intricate carbon-fiber details inside and out. Not only that, but he has specified the adaptive sports exhaust, making it sound “so much better.”

Archies car also has the upgraded 22″ alloy wheels. While these do look amazing, when he mentions them Hamilton says “Are these wheels staying on the car? Hmm, I’m not going to lie” suggesting that a wheel swap is in the pipeline.

The best part of the car for AH is the interior, as “this is where it gets even better!” Inside the carbon-fiber details continue, along with an Alcantara steering wheel. His favorite things inside the car are the panoramic roof and uprated B&O audio system which are both “game-changers.”

Audi incorporates the navigation system into both the central touchscreen and the instrument cluster. Archie admits he always messes around with the system on RS models as the graphics are so good.

Moving on to speak about his plans for the car, Archie reveals that he has a number of ideas to change up the RS6’s appearance.

He says he “wants to go back to his roots” referencing his Mercedes A45 AMG. While he doesn’t want to wrap this one camouflage like his A45 he “go to town” on the RS6.

According to Archie, the wheels are going to change, along with the addition of “splitters, things like that… some seriously cool mods.” It is also going to be wrapped, but as of yet Archie has not confirmed the color, just “not satin black.”

Allegedly, he says he has “no plans to sell this car” but AH fans know he’s notorious for doing so. Still, giving him the benefit of the doubt, he does appear to be genuinely smitten with the RS6.
