A report on the top 10 highest earning car influencers on the internet has revealed Australian YouTuber Supercar Blondie tops the list by quite some margin.

While you might think social media nowadays is dominated by gamers, celebrities and TikTok dancers, there’s actually a huge market for car influencers showing off the latest supercars, reviewing popular vehicles and giving advice.

According to this report, the top influencers are making some serious cash, too, with millions of subscribers and Instagram followers meaning certain people are having a decent payday at the end of each month.

Even American comedian and TV host Jay Leno is in on the car influencer action.

The list, which was curated and researched by GoCompare sees Supercar Blondie take the top spot by quite some margin estimating her yearly income at over $1.4m – including around £20,000 per Instagram post.

She beats out the likes of Doug DeMuro, Colin Furze and even American comedian and former late-night TV host Jay Leno, who also feature among the top earners.

Here’s the top 10 earners according to GoCompare, including how much they allegedly make per Instagram and YouTube post:

Influencer Earnings per Instagram post Earnings per YouTube video Estimated yearly income
Supercar Blondie $25,547.39 $3965.53 $1,406,440.09
Colin Furze $1,373.70 $12,106.86 $642,416.92
Dave ‘Heavy D’ Sparks $12,145.48 $307.42 $593,443.72
MontanaBlack88 $9,632.62 $2,364.76 $571,736.18
Salomondrin $10,470.24 $1,174.57 $554,934.09
ChrisFixIt $2,274.14 $8,603.24 $518,362.15
Richard Rawlings $9,632.62 $281.88 $472,476.27
Alan Enileev $8,795.00 $811.77 $457,811.02
Doug Demuro $1,080.53 $6,463.79 $359,525.34
Jay Leno $4,188.10 $2,506.80 $319,045.66

Disclaimer: Earnings on YouTube/Instagram converted from GBP to USD at the time of writing.

As you can see, according to the report, Blondie makes over twice as much as the next highest-earning car influencer Colin Furze, who allegedly makes around $640k a year from his YouTube and Instagram posts.

It’s hard to believe Jay Leno makes so little in comparison to other car influencers from his posts, considering his celebrity, but we imagine he’s making his fair share outside of the realms of cars.

Obviously, the list may not be completely accurate, so take it with a grain of salt, but it’s impressive nonetheless to see how well Supercar Blondie is doing for herself in the field — and she doesn’t look like slowing down any time soon.

Series 28 of Forza Horizon 4 saw a number of updates and changes implemented, with one of the biggest being the introduction of Horizon Backstage. We explain how to access this new area, and give a rundown of all the cars available. 

The Forza Backstage area was added to Forza Horizon 4 as part of the Series 28 update on October 13, 2020.

Allowing players access to exclusive, ultra-rare, and hard-to-find cars, the Backstage area is an exciting new addition to the game. Along with making it easier to find such rare cars, it also makes them far more accessible, as each featured vehicle only costs one ‘Backstage Pass’ rather than millions of credits.

Horizon Backstage LocationHorizon Backstage is located behind the main Horizon Festival stage.

How to access Horizon Backstage

Forza Horizon 4 Backstage can be accessed much the same as the ‘Autoshow’ in the game.

Players can either drive to the physical location found behind the main Horizon Festival Stage, or access via the ‘Autoshow’ menu.

You can also access the area via the pause menu, by selecting “Horizon Backstage” under the ‘Cars’ tab.

Horizon Backstage Car ListEach car costs 1 Backstage Pass, and is limited to one per player.

Forza Horizon 4 Backstage Passes

Each vehicle in the Backstage area is available for purchase by players. Instead of the usual method of obtaining cars via in-game credits or Forzathon points, each vehicle costs 1x Backstage Pass.

These passes are awarded to players once they reach certain milestones in Festival event playlists. Passes are not specific to particular cars, and can be used for any vehicles featured in the backstage area.

Players can also accumulate passes, as they do not have an expiry date. It is important to note, however, that each featured car is limited to only one per player.

Horizon Backstage car votingThe Forza Horizon 4 community has the opportunity to vote which cars make it to Backstage.

Horizon Backstage cars

The cars featured in Horizon Backstage are chosen via community vote. From what we can see, previous cars stick around after their initial period, and currently, players are able to access Backstage featured cars from the previous seven days.

Currently available Horizon Backstage cars:

  • 1999 Lotus Elise Series 1 Sport 190
  • 2012 Ferrari 599XX Evo
  • 1965 Hoonigan Gymkhana 10 Hoonicorn Mustang
  • 2005 Hot Wheels Ford Mustang
  • 1970 Porsche 914/6
  • 2018 Honda Civic Type R
  • 1994 Nissan Fairlady Z Version S Twin Turbo
