In a hypercar double-bill on YouTube, automotive vloggers DailyDrivenExotics and TheStradman have revealed their latest garage additions. For TheStradman, this has been months in the making, for DDE, it comes as a surprise to nearly everyone.

Buying an ultra-rare, ultra-exclusive hypercar is a big milestone in life; For some, it takes months of planning, preparation, and searching, for others, it seems almost spontaneous.

Showcasing both types of approach on their respective YouTube channels, both DailyDrivenExotics and TheStradman have revealed their new hypercars – a McLaren P1 for DDE, and a Bugatti Veyron for TheStradman.

DailyDrivenExotics’ “Surreal” new McLaren P1

In a video that has taken their viewers by surprise; Dave and Damon from DailyDrivenExotics have revealed their first-ever hypercar; The McLaren P1.

Having had a joint test-drive with this exact P1 and a McLaren Senna a while back, it seemed that nothing had come of their hypercar search. Well, it turns out that the DDE crew had in fact bought the exact McLaren P1 that featured in the video.

Discussing their choice to buy the $1.7m USD hypercar; Damon called the moment “so surreal” while adding that it is indeed a big financial risk for the channel. Dave does explain that they chose the P1 as an “investment” with the hope the value will go up over time.

It seems that the boys are still pressing forward with their plans to build a road-going Lamborghini Super Trofeo car, though it won’t be with the current “tire slayer” Huracan.

Instead, they have listed the “tire slayer” for sale at $199,000 and are looking to base their next build on a Huracan Evo. The 720s is also apparently sticking around, so we can expect a double-feature video with that and the new P1 in the near future.

TheStradman’s “dream” Bugatti Veyron

Having teased viewers for months on end, the day has finally come for TheStradman as he unveils his first hypercar: The 2008 Bugatti Veyron.

Many subscribers suspected that TheStradman would buy a Bugatti; With the opinion split between whether he would buy a P1 or a Veyron as his first hypercar.

The story of his YouTube channel is one of rags-to-riches; From filming Veyrons while living in his Audi TT, to being behind the wheel of his own Bugatti Veyron a number of years later; It’s an automotive fairytale come to life.

His excitement is clear to see throughout the reveal video, with Stradman saying it is a “childhood dream come true” to be unveiling his own hypercar. Unusually, the car was delivered in a crate, so he was able to do a literal ‘unboxing’ of his new Veyron, much to the amusement of his fans.

The car in question is a 2008 Bugatti Veyron, complete with the quad-turbocharged, 8l W16 engine putting out over 1000hp from factory.

In typical Stradman style, it seems even the Veyron won’t escape modification, dropping a not-so-subtle hint about having to replace the “lousy” exhaust during the first ‘drive’.

Given that the Veyron is a “dream car” and worth a considerable amount, it is unlikely we’ll see any crazy modifications; Though a new exhaust and perhaps even the trademark ‘grape’ wrap may well make an appearance.

Drake needs no introduction. As one of the biggest names in rap music across the globe, the star has amassed a net worth of over $150 million. Not only is his net worth insane, but so is his car collection.

Canadian musician Drake – real name Aubrey – is one of the best-known names in rap music. With a ridiculous number of awards to his name, he has become an almost permanent fixture on mainstream music charts. As you may imagine, his success had led to him building up quite the car collection.

Reportedly, the total value of his current car collection is worth nearly eight-figures. With his continued success, it is likely that he will break this barrier within the next few years if all goes well.

Drake is a big fan of British supercar makers McLaren, and has a number of their cars in his fleet. One of his personal favorites is his white McLaren 675LT. Costing upwards of $338,000 the 675LT is one of McLaren’s most ‘hardcore’ cars ever, with 666hp from its twin-turbo V8 engine.

Not one to go with ‘basic’ versions of cars, Drake purchased a limited-edition Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4. With 700hp on tap, this Lambo will do 0-60 in under 3 seconds, and cost Drake a cool $400,000. Drake has also previously said the car “makes him feel like Christian Bale (in Batman)” when behind the wheel.

Swapping performance for all-out luxury, Drake owns one of the plushest cars money can buy – a Mercedes Pullman. Typically used by royal families and government officials, this high-class Merc is perfect for whisking Drake around in absolute luxury. It doesn’t come cheap, however, retailing at over $600k.

Opting for a one-off car is a great way to ‘flex’ your wealth, and that’s exactly what Drake has done with his $700k+ Mansory Bushukan Phantom. Featuring a custom design, along with a solid gold OVO hood ornament in place of the RR ‘spirit of ecstasy’ the Phantom is perfect for ultra-plush travel.

Drake’s incredible hypercar collection

In terms of hypercars, his collection is as crazy as you’d imagine. His Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir is one of only 12 in the world, and cost a whopping $2,000,000. Drake also has a LaFerrari in Yellow, which likely set him back around $1.5-$2 million.

If you thought the Bugatti was wild, the crown of Drake’s collection will blow you away. He has reportedly bought one of the world’s first Devel Sixteen hypercars. With an alleged 5000hp from its 12.3l, V16 engine, it is one of the rarest cars in the world, costing $2,200,000.

Drake’s custom private jet

Of course, we can’t forget his custom Boeing 767 private jet, but that won’t fit in a garage, so we’ve excluded it from the list.

All told, Drake’s car collection is currently sitting around the $8 million mark, if reports are to be believed. Who knows where it will sit in a few years time.
