Popular YouTuber Doug DeMuro has revealed all of the cars he’d love to own in his ‘dream garage’ but if you think it’s just chock full of supercars and expensive vehicles, you’d be wrong. 

Car enthusiasts around the globe all have their own unique wants and likes when it comes to owning a set of wheels. Some, obviously, have more cash to splash than others and can make their dreams a reality by buying something they’ve had their heart set on for quite a while.

Though, for many others, a dream car is purely that – a dream. Yet, it doesn’t stop them hoping to own at least one of the cars that may be out of their reach. However, for Doug DeMuro, his dream car list isn’t full of McClaren P1’s or Bugatti Veyron’s.

DeMuro is known for his wild auto-themed videos on YouTube.

According to the popular YouTuber, he has a list of 11 cars that he absolutely wants to own – including a handful of those that he has actually managed to grab the keys for – with it taking him around a month to settle on the list.

The 11 he is desperate to own are: the Audi RS2 Avant, E30 BMW M3, Ferrari F40 – the most expensive on the list, 2005/06 Ford GT, Lancia Delta Integrale Evoluzione, 1997 Land Rover Defender 90, a 1998-2001 Mercedes Benz C43 AMG Wagon, Mercedes Benz CLK 63 AMG Black series, Mercedes Benz G500 Cabriolet, Porsche 993 Turbo, and a yellow Porsche Carrera GT. 

“I wanted to be kind of realistic about this,” Doug explained. “What are the cars that maybe I could one day potentially own? Obviously, I want a Ferrari F50 but those are 3 million dollars, I’m never going to have that kind of money to buy a car.”

Of the wide-ranging list, the YouTuber car enthusiast already owns a 2005/06 Ford GT, 1997 Land Rover Defender 90, and the Mercedes Benz G500 Cabriolet – with the Defender being something he’s wanted since he was a kid. 

Whether or not he’ll be able to add to those in the future remains to be seen, especially as some of the older cars have only just become importable to the United States. For now, though, it’s one of the stranger dream cars lists out there.

YouTuber reveals “harsh reality” of owning insane supercar collection

TheStradman’s crazy car collection is the envy of any petrolhead, but it turns out there’s a darker side to supercar ownership. In his November 24 video, he reveals just how much he pays for his cars, as well as the upkeep on his fleet, which totals to a staggering amount of money.

From sleeping in his Audi TT to owning a Bugatti Veyron, it’s fair to say YouTuber James ‘TheStradman’ has had an incredible rise to ‘the top’ of his career. But, owning numerous supercars (and one hypercar) doesn’t come cheap, as he has now revealed.

Right from the first video of his Bugatti Veyron ownership series, he has said he wants to be as ‘open and transparent’ as possible with viewers. Given the insane costs of owning a hypercar, James has certainly delivered on his promise, even going as far as breaking down an incredible $30,000 service bill for his subscribers.

TheStradman reveals insane cost of supercar ownership

Straight away in the video, Stradman gets to the question on everyone’s lips: How much does the Bugatti Veyron cost to own? Well, it turns out that per month, the car costs him $4,765, and he cannot miss a single payment.

This is a lot of money, but given that his housemate Burlacher – who has far fewer followers – revealed he makes nearly $40k/year on YouTube, we imagine TheStradman is making enough to cover the payments, and then some.

With many viewers expecting that TheStradman paid north of $1m for his Veyron, he reveals that the overall price was in fact far less. In total, he paid only $880,000 for the Veyron, which he said will come as “no surprise” for his viewers to learn that it is financed.

Perhaps even more shocking is the amount that he put down – a total of $550,000. We know that he’s sold a lot of cars recently, but that’s still an incredibly large down payment for a car, even if it is a Veyron! James also admits that had he paid for the car outright, he would’ve been “financially wrecked” which is why he put it on finance.

While the Bugatti is sensibly financed, TheStradman revealed that he is the complete and outright owner of both his Lamborghini Aventadors, having paid off their finance agreements. Therefore, it is only a matter of time before the Veyron is also paid off. With his continued success and impressive viewing figures, hopefully, for him, it will be sooner rather than later.
