Despite the YouTube car scene being awash with creators, occasionally a rising star shines through. GG Exotics may well be one of those stars with access to multi-million-dollar hypercars, challenges, and entertaining videos.

The son of a Texas billionaire; GG Exotics – real name Gage – has risen to YouTube prominence thanks to his high-stakes challenge videos, automotive pranks, and access to his dad’s incredible collection of super- and hypercars.

Despite having only started posting on YouTube during July 2020, Gage has amassed himself over 57,000 subscribers and climbing thanks to his unique video style.

The hypercar collection seen on GG Exotics is undoubtedly the highlight of the channel.

With his first video on the channel being the arrival of his dad’s new 1-of-1 Pagani Huayra Roadster, it set the precedence for the kind of high-quality hypercar-based vlogs that form the backbone of the channel.

Alongside his hypercar vlogs, that range from simple driving videos to ‘speccing’ an incoming Koenigsegg Jesko, Gage also posts regular high-stakes ‘challenge’ videos and pranks.

Some of these videos see Gage betting thousands of dollars against his competitors. Regardless of whether this is a ‘flex’ thanks to his family wealth or simply a way to up the stakes, it results in a genuinely tense challenge atmosphere, as seen in his “Real life GTA mission” video.

The highlight of the GG Exotics channel is without a doubt the incredible hypercar collection which Gage is privileged enough to have seemingly unrestricted access to.

Not many young Americans have access to their dad’s sports cars, let alone a garage full of hypercars at their disposal.

Featuring a $4m Bugatti Chiron, 1-0f-1 Pagani Huayra Roadster, $1m+ Ferrari LaFerrari, and McLaren Senna among others; The Garage seen on Gage’s YouTube channel would make even the most hardened car collector green with envy.

It seems that Gage is happy to share these incredible cars for other YouTubers to experience, as seen in a series of collaboration videos with renowned YouTuber Tanner Fox.

Filmed as part of Tanner’s “Billionaire life swap” series, Gage let Tanner drive both the multi-million dollar Bugatti Chiron and Tanner’s “dream car” the Ferrari LaFerrari.

While the channel was growing well on its own, the collaboration with Tanner must’ve opened up some of Fox’s 10.3m subs to the GG Exotics channel.

Clearly not one to worry excessively about the incredible car collection that he has, Gage also uses the cars as the basis for several prank videos.

In one such video, he can be seen spray painting his dad’s Rolls Royce with brightly-colored paint. Thankfully the ‘graffiti’ is actually water-soluble chalk paint, but given the six-figure value of the Rolls Royce, that is still a very brave prank to be pulling.

Not only content with pranking his family, but he also pranks fellow hypercar vlogger Riley (Ridewithry) who stars in a number of videos with Gage.

In the prank video above, Gage says that it’s the start of “prank wars” between the two, so hopefully, there will be plenty of new videos from both channels as part of this ‘war’.

With his lavish lifestyle, incredible car collection, and skill for creating genuinely entertaining videos, it seems Gage is well on his way to breaking the 100k subscribers mark in no time.

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.
