Popular car YouTube Archie Hamilton has explained why he still hasn’t sold his Porsche GT3 RS despite it having disappeared from his channel in recent months. 

Like many car-based YouTubers, Archie Hamilton has a pretty impressive collection of cars that leaves viewers looking on enviously. Though, he recently sold his Range Rover SVR sport and revealed that he won’t be grabbing an Audi RS6 2020 despite paying a deposit on his order.

However, it is the GT3 RS that many fans of the Porsche racing driver didn’t expect to see return to the fold. The car had stopped appearing in Archie’s videos – even in the background to his others – in favor of the Mercedes A45 and SVR Sport – before it was sold. Yet, it is now back with him.

The Porsche GT3 RS (L) had disappeared from Archie’s channel in recent months.

The YouTuber addressed it’s disappearance in his most recent video, noting that it had been put in storage and he did have it up for sale – and that was the last time that his fans heard about it. Since then, it was set to leave his collection completely but things didn’t work out. 

“I’ve had offers on it. I’ve had two proper serious people come to see it,” Archie explained. “They test drove it and then were just trying to lowball me with it and I was like, look, I don’t need to sell it. If it’s the right price, I would sell it but I love it that much that I’m like what else is going to beat it.”

His GT3 RS hasn’t even got all that many miles on the clock either, but Archie still had it due in for a service that would set him back around £2,500. Though, the YouTuber accepted that he ultimately would sell the car “if the money was right.”

However, getting rid of it for the sake of funding his racing wouldn’t make sense, he said, as it would only fund about a weekend’s worth of racing. What he’ll do with the Porsche still remains to be seen but, for now, it is sticking with him.

Celebrity chef Guy Fieri is known for his wacky fashion sense as much as his incredible culinary skills. But, he is also a massive petrolhead, with a very unusual car collection.

The first thing you’ll notice about Guy Fieri’s car collection is that it’s just as wacky as he is. Immediately, you’ll realize there is a distinct yellow theme running throughout, with the majority of his vehicles being painted in the sunshine shade.

Yellow-ness aside, however, the cars in his collection are certainly impressive. From Jeeps to classic V8 muscle ones, Fieri has a vehicle for all situations – so long as it’s acceptable for it to be bright yellow.

Guy Fieri’s classic car collection

Guy is a massive classic car fan, and that’s evident from the moment you see his striking collection.

One of the coolest ones in his garage is his 1969 Chevrolet Corvette. With its exaggerated, bulging arches and drop-top roof, it looks menacing even in the prerequisite yellow paintwork.

His 1976 Jeep CJ-5 may not be the coolest car, but it might be one of his most iconic. Finished in bright yellow with flame decals down the side, this is a vehicle that’ll get noticed wherever Guy takes it.

A self-confessed Chevrolet lover, Guy has a number of cars from the iconic American brand in his collection. Alongside these, he has a number of other awesome and sometimes obscure classics. Here’s the full list:

  • ’69 Chevrolet Corvette
  • Jeep CJ-5
  • Chevrolet Chevelle
  • CSX Cobra
  • ’96 Chevrolet Impala
  • The iconic red Chevrolet Camaro used on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.
  • Pontiac Firebird
  • Custom Chevrolet C10 truck

Guy Fieri’s supercars

It’s not just classics in Fieri’s impressive collection. While a number of his supercars are – you guessed it – bright yellow, that doesn’t make them any less cool.

Opting for a convertible version of the Lamborghini Gallardo no doubt helps keep Fieri’s iconic frosted tips upright at all times, thanks to the impressive performance from the V10 engine.

Alongside the Gallardo, Guy also has a number of other supercars in his collection. While they aren’t all bright yellow, they are all certainly cool enough for Fieri:

  • Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder
  • Aston Martin DB9
  • 2007 Chevrolet Corvette
  • 2011 Chevrolet Camaro

Of course, he owns a number of ‘standard’ cars too, perfect for getting around without any attention. In his fleet, he has a number of trucks including an ’04 GMC Sierra, Chevrolet Kodiak, and even a Cadillac Escalade.

Since a lot of his vehicles are classics, it’s impossible to put a price on Fieri’s impressive collection. Regardless of the cost, though, we can all appreciate the sheer coolness (and yellow-ness) of his collection.
