Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay may be best-known for his incredible culinary delights, but it turns out the famously foul-mouthed chef is a big petrolhead too. Here are our highlights from his expansive collection.

For Ramsay, his biggest vice is Ferraris. From classics such as the F355 GTS to the incredible SP2 Monza, his garage is full of so-called ‘prancing horses’. But it’s not just Ferraris in his collection.

One theme that is certain, however, is speed. Almost all of Gordon’s cars have incredible stats, and his personal collection reads like a Top Trumps deck of supercars.

It’s tricky to know where to begin when it comes to Ramsay’s supercars. With most people dreaming of just owning one or two of the cars from this list, walking into Gordon’s garage must be like entering heaven for any petrolhead.

Ferrari

It’s well-known that Gordon has a thing for Ferrari’s. Having cited the Ferrari 308 seen in Magnum, P.I as his first Ferrari love, as his success has grown, so has his collection of Maranello’s finest.

His oldest Ferrari is a true ‘modern classic’ – a Ferrari F355 GTS from 1998. Clearly, modern classics are a favorite for Gordon, with a 550 Maranello and an F430 GTB.

Moving towards the newer end of the spectrum, and one of the jewels of his collection is his gorgeous Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta. The Aperta edition of the LaF is the rarest of them all, with only 210 ever made. The LaFerrari proved to be a good investment too, as prices have skyrocketed in recent years.

Alongside the classics and the LaF, Ramsay has even more Ferraris tucked away. From an F12 TDf to a 488 GTB and even an SP2 Monza, costing over $1.8 million.

Ramsay’s car collection is staggering, with a plethora of supercars and hypercars.

McLaren, Porsche, and Aston Martin

While his biggest love affair seems to be with Ferrari, that’s not to say Gordon doesn’t embrace other walks of automotive life. McLaren, Porsche, and Aston Martin all play a big part in his collection too.

His McLaren Senna is one of the standout vehicles in his impressive collection. During a track day, he described being behind the wheel of the Senna as akin to driving “the fastest rollercoaster you’ve ever been on.” As well as his Senna, he also has a 675LT, which in itself isn’t to be sniffed at.

Gordon only appears to own one Porsche, but he’s picked a very good one to go for – the 918 Spyder. His first hypercar, the hybrid 918 Spyder still turns heads and has incredible performance statistics nearly six years since it first launched.

Aston Martin is another favorite brand for the celebrity chef. With both a DB7 V12 Vantage and a DBS Superleggera in his fleet, Ramsay is clearly a fan of driving the quintessential British supercar brand.

Other exotic cars

While the majority of his collection is made up of big-name performance car brands, there are also a few oddities within his fleet, though they too are impressive.

The BAC Mono is the most hardcore vehicle in his collection, being a single-seat track-focused sports car. At the other end of the spectrum, he also has a custom Land Rover Defender 110, which was one of the only surviving stunt cars from the ‘Spectre’ James Bond film.


While it is impossible to work out the total of Gordon’s collection, it is undoubtedly one of the most impressive fleets of supercars we’ve seen here on Dexerto. Clearly, Gordon is a man of taste both in the kitchen and on the road.

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.
