US-based YouTuber and supercar owner TheStradman has given us a full run-down of his current projects, an update on his Ferrari 458 Italia build, and seemingly fires back at Whistlindiesel in his latest video.

With everything going on in the world at the moment, a number of TheStradman’s builds have been noticeably absent from his channel recently. The monster 6×6 build and the twin-turbocharged Lamborghini Gallardo, in particular, have been very quiet, so it seems fitting that we’ve had a garage update.

It turns out that the twin-turbo Lamborghini Gallardo is further along than many would’ve imagined, having been at the B-Rogue Built shop having its custom twin-turbocharger setup designed and fitted.

In his latest video, the popular YouTuber gave fans an update on whats going on with his cars while also responding to the Whistlindiesel Instagram drama.

Stradman’s response to Whistlindiesel Instagram drama

Speaking about his Rolls-Royce limousine, TheStradman seems to make a jab at Whistlindiesel following their beef on Instagram. He says “a lot of you guys are telling me I should just destroy the Rolls Royce, I should blow it up… that’s just not my style, to blow up a cool car just for YouTube views.”

With even his followers noticing that he’s “calling out” Whistlindiesel, it’ll be interesting to see if WD uses this opportunity to bite back, or whether the drama will simply fizzle out as quickly as it started.

As for his Lambo, TheStradman is actually flying out to Chicago to film a first cold start video with the Gallardo and to see progress on the build, with the car now at the tuning stage of the process.

The Gladiator 6×6 build has also been progressing along in the background, though it has been delayed due to unexpected factors and is on track to be finished around mid-October all being well.

The Ferrari 458 is on the chopping block

His latest garage addition, the Ferrari 458 Italia, is also going under the knife. Having bought a $30,000 pre-owned Liberty Walk wide-body kit, TheStradman is now going to cut up the Ferrari and modify it with a new exhaust, wheels, and improved stance to complement the rest of his fleet.

Apparently undeterred by the delays, TheStradman says that “the reincarnation of (the) purple army in 2021 is going to be like nothing the world has ever seen” which has us expecting big things from the Utah-based YouTuber.

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.
