Just thinking about the cost of owning a 2020 Mercedes AMG GT might be enough to make some buyers not even look into it, but YouTuber Thomas George has revealed an insane VIP deal that the manufacturer is offering and it’s insane how cheap he got one for. 

The popular internet personality juggles life between investment banking and making content for his loyal fanbase, with over 190,000 people subscribed to his YouTube channel called TGE TV.

While previous uploads have included closer looks at his companies and supercars, the co-founder of muscle and fitness brand LDNM decided to focus solely on the AMG GT during a video on January 27 – revealing the astonishingly low deals some people are managing to get the cars for.

Here’s the car Tom is driving, the Mercedes AMG GT, for an incredibly low monthly price.

Now, Tom was very clear right from the outset. These deals he is talking about in the video are not ones that you can drive down to your local Mercedes dealership and haggle for – not at all. They are, instead, exclusively offered to influencers and VIPs.

Per the deal that he’s talking about, he is able to drive the car for an unbelievably low monthly fee. Later in the video, though, Tom said that the AMG GT has made such an impression on him, he would even consider buying one without a discounted price.

“You’ve got to qualify for it [the deal] and there are obligations on my end to achieve this deal,” he explains, before revealing that the car costs just £699 per month. “Which sounds a lot, but it’s actually not for what this is,” his co-host added.


By contrast, a 2019 version of the AMG GT would cost around £1,700 per month, according to buyacar. Included in the VIP deal, however, are some other details that he decided to highlight for viewers.

Tom added: “So there’s a 10,000 miles a year limit on the finance down. At the end of the 12-month term I will just hand the car back. The list price of the car was £121,000 and with the kind of deal I could discount, contributions and all of the rest of it, it works out about £88,000,” meaning that people taking up this deal are saving over £30,000 as a result.

While he could probably sell the vehicle for more than the money he’s invested into it, the businessman confirmed that he does intend to hand the car back after the 12 months – all made possible due to an unbelievable deal not everybody will know about.

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.

His Lamborghini Aventador is a special edition LP 700-4 model.

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.
