Will Collette is an automotive YouTuber, photographer, and influencer manager. He works with many of the biggest names of the motoring scene, including the likes of Stradman, DDE, Life Of Palos, and many more. Each week, he’ll take you behind the scenes of the shoots of some of the biggest automotive influencers.

We begin with Lindsay Brewer, the model and racing driver, who has recently been sharing her passion for cars more regularly with her 1.2m followers on Instagram.

I met Lindsay when walking around Sunset GT, one of LA’s finest car meets. Sponsored by O’Gara Coach, it’s known for showcasing some of the world’s rarest vehicles and you can expect to spot everything from the record breaking Koenigsegg to a one-off Pagani.

We were both checking out a Chiron at the top of a Beverly Hills parking lot when we met. I recognized her as I was already following her on Instagram and was aware of her fashion and lifestyle shoots. However, after chatting for a few minutes, I found out that she had a real passion for all things automotive.

“I love these types of events, but I don’t know how I can share all this with my followers,” explained Lindsay.

She already had a proven background in automotive racing, but she just wanted to showcase it with her fanbase. A year later, as her new manager, I am helping her do just that.

“I’ve been karting ever since I was a kid,” she says. “My dad always had me around cars. This isn’t something new, everyone is just seeing it for the first time.”

Lindsay had tired of holding back her true passion – kicking ass on the race track. She is currently training for GT4 for McLaren, and you can find her turning and burning behind the wheel of her Gintani tuned BMW on the streets of Los Angeles, or hitting the apex on tracks like Thermal Club.

Now, before you think she’s another Supercar Blondie, understand that she’s not. While Alex has grown an impressively large audience surrounding herself with the world’s rarest vehicles, Lindsay will be more of a track monster. Lindsay doesn’t claim to know all the fun facts car nerds like to rattle off at the meets, but she does hold a level of respect on the track.

I’ve personally been in the car while she’s driving, and I can say that she moves terrifyingly fast in the canyons. She’s familiar with everything her BMW can do, and god forbid she asks me to ride along when she upgrades to a faster ride.

We recently took a cruise through Angeles Crest, a famous canyon run in LA, with some car friends. Lindsay let the tires skid as she went 90 on a hairpin, parked at the top of the mountain and checked her reflection to literally fix her hairpin. Also, in the rear-view mirror were the Lamborghini SVJ and the 2020 GT500 she absolutely left in the dust.

What can we expect from the LA based driver? Well, she’s dropped a few hints to this racing lifestyle in the past, but plans to go all in on the automotive lifestyle in these upcoming months.

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.
