Evidently feeling humbled following the purchase of their first hypercar, the DailyDrivenExotics (DDE) crew are giving one lucky subscriber the chance to win a retro Honda Integra Type R for free. 

It seems that DDE are keen to give back to their legion of 2.58m subscribers, offering the chance for one lucky subscriber to win a fully-restored Honda Integra DC2 Type R for free.

While a Honda may not seem like the greatest giveaway car ever seen on YouTube — with DDE having just bought a McLaren P1 — the Integra Type R is a true modern classic.

With their values on the rise, this could be a fantastic opportunity for a young fan to get into the world of car collecting.

Often lauded as one of the best-handling front-wheel-drive cars ever built, the Integra would be great fun as a second car, or even as a daily-driven classic.

 

How to enter the DDE car giveaway competition

Open to all residents of the US and Canada, the competition is completely free to enter. Simply subscribe to the DDE YouTube channel, DDE Instagram account, and fill in the form in the description of the YouTube video below.

With the winner being revealed on Black Friday (November 27 2020) the lucky new owner of the Honda Integra Type R won’t have to wait long to claim their prize.

It’s not often that a big-name channel such as DDE runs a giveaway, let alone one that’s free to enter.

With the prize being such a desirable modern classic, if you have any interest in cars as a driver, collector, or even just for an investment, then you’d be daft not to enter.

Unfortunately, the competition is only open to residents of the US, the District of Columbia, and Canada. Sadly residents in Quebec and Puerto Rico are unable to enter, as are entrants from anywhere else in the world.

DailyDrivenExotics new headquarters teased

It seems that Damon from the DDE crew has been especially busy behind-the-scenes in recent months. Having bought a hypercar, set up a competition, and produced numerous VLOGs for the channel, Damon reveals in the giveaway video that he is also moving house.

With a garage capable of holding 6 cars included in his new property, Damon plans to install lifts to raise the capacity of the garage. This means that for the first time ever, all of the DDE fleet can be kept on his property in one place, rather than spread out across Canada.

Beyond a quick glimpse of the house and the information about the garage plans above, Damon didn’t reveal any more information. Rest assured though, he did promise a “full walkthrough” video in the near future once they have moved in.

The Weeknd’s $3m car collection is fitting for a music icon

The Weeknd is one of the standout musicians of this generation, with several number-one hits. It turns out true to his music, he loves fast cars, and his car collection is enough to make anyone jealous.

One of the standout lines from Abel Makkonen ‘The Weeknd’ Tesfaye’s number-one single ‘Starboy’ is “we don’t pray for love, we just pray for cars.” It seems that the Weeknd got what he was asking for, as his garage reads like an A-list gathering of exotic cars.

From supercars to luxury vehicles, the Weeknd’s car collection is certainly one to be jealous of; We’ve picked out some of the highlights for you to enjoy.

It turns out his P1 is cleaner than your church shoes.

The Weeknd’s supercar collection

Many fans wondered if the McLaren P1 he sings about in Starboy is his. Well, it turns out he does indeed own the orange McLaren P1 seen in the video. This $1.2 million, 903hp hypercar forms part of the ‘holy trinity’ of hypercars, along with the Ferrari LaFerrari and Porsche 918.

Clearly, the P1 is Abel’s favorite of the trio, as it found a place inside his incredible custom-built, mirror-floored garage.

Alongside his P1, he also owns another outlandish supercar – a Lamborghini Aventador SVJ. This extravagant Lamborghini packs 690hp from its naturally-aspirated V12 engine. Costing over $517,000 the SVJ is one of the most extreme road-going Lamborghinis ever made.

Abel Tesfaye’s exotic cars

As well as his enviable garage of supercars, The Weeknd also has a number of luxurious ‘exotic’ vehicles to complement his brash, visceral performance car collection.

One particular highlight is his Bentley Mulsanne. This ultra-plush ride is equally suited to driving and being driven in. Costing just over $300,000, it is likely that The Weeknd’s Mulsanne is blue, judging by the line “I’m in the blue Mulsanne bumping New Edition” in the song Starboy.

Alongside the Bentley, he also reportedly owns an AMG G63. A typical celebrity’s car, the G63 blends off-road performance with incredible power from its twin-turbo V8 engine, producing 577hp.

He also apparently has a love for the more ‘retro’ things in life too, as Abel reportedly owns a classic 1980’s Porsche 911. While exact details on this car aren’t clear, there’s no doubt it looks stunning sat next to his modern collection.

While his collection isn’t the biggest, nor the most expensive at around the $3m mark, it’s fair to say anyone would be envious. He clearly loves his cars, as he sings about them often enough!
