YouTuber Shmee finally reveals entire car collection

Popular car YouTuber Shmee150 showed off his complete car collection for the first time and as expected, it’s pretty insane. 

The popular car enthusiast, who has racked up over two million subscribers on the platform, has one of the more unique collections of vehicles compared to his fellow content creators.

After recently revealing how much it costs to own a Ferrari GTC4Lusso and use it as a daily driver, the YouTuber decided to celebrate a decade of making videos by taking his whole car collection out of storage and showing them off altogether.

Shmee has revealed some of unique cars separately but never all in one go before.

While some car YouTubers can lay claim to owning a few Ferrari’s, McClaren’s, and Lamborghini’s, Shmee’s collection is pretty wide-ranging. He has a few supercars in the forms of limited edition Aston Martin GT8, Ford GT, McClaren Senna, and a McClaren 675LT Spider.

Yet, he’s got a few other toys as well. They include further limited edition forms of the Mercedes AMG GTR Pro, 2019 Toyota GR Supra, and two different Ford Focus – as well as his Ferrari GTC4Lusso and AMG G63 G Wagon.

Even though they are his cars and he drives them, Shmee was certainly taken aback by seeing the full collection together and looking ready to cruise the road as a convoy. “The cars are all lined up, all here together for the first time – and this is, quite frankly, ridiculous,” the YouTuber said.

Though he wasn’t taking them on the road, and was just setting them up for a few photoshoots, the YouTuber did have a little fun with his pocket rocket custom Segway Go-Kart. However, when he brought it all to a close a few hours later, even he still couldn’t believe the progress he’s made in a decade of YouTube. 

“I could never have predicted where this journey was going to take things, from the beginning back then when it was uploading videos of cycling around central London chasing cars, filming these kinds of things at the time, but I never could have expected this,” Shmee said. 

With the new decade well underway, there should be plenty of opportunities for Shmee to add to his collection, especially with a few new supercar launches planned.

If he get his hands on them, though, remains to be seen, but at least fans can look forward to a whole boatload of new content surrounding the ones he already owns.

Matt LeBlanc’s classic car collection is nothing short of extraordinary

While many were surprised to see Friends star and sitcom actor Matt LeBlanc as one of the hosts for BBC’s Top Gear for a stint, it turns out LeBlanc is in fact a massive petrolhead, and has a collection of classic cars that is the stuff of dreams.

Anyone that has watched Friends knows the scene where Matt’s character Joey pretends to own a Porsche. Well, it turns out that there’s a degree of truth in that scene — LeBlanc is a massive fan of the Porsche brand, and has a number of their cars in his fleet.

Unlike most celebrity car collections, however, Matt’s is a lot more classic-oriented than most. From early air-cooled Porsches to unusual Jeeps, he has a classic for almost any occasion, as well as a number of cutting-edge supercars for good measure.

Matt’s fastest car is his Porsche 911 GT2 RS.

Matt LeBlanc’s incredible Porsche collection

Porsche clearly hold a special place in Matt’s heart. From the air-cooled ‘widowmaker’ 930 911 Turbo to the cutting-edge 911 GT2 RS, his collection spans a number of decades and styles.

There is a noticeable bias towards the classics here, too. Prior to the 996-era of 911 launching in 1997, Porsche’s engines were mostly air-cooled, and this is where most of Matt’s collection is focused. While there are no doubt some hidden gems that are kept away from public eyes, we do know he owns the following:

  • 2012 911 Carrera GTS
  • 1988 964 (911) Carrera
  • 1987 930 (911) Turbo
  • 2014 911 Turbo S
  • 2016 911 R
  • 2017 911 GT2 RS

Despite his love for Porsche, there’s one he’d never buy: A 914. In an interview with Men’s Journal, he said “I’m not a fan of the 914, though I know there are some die-hard fans out there. I’ll get letters about that.”

As a well-known car enthusiast, Top Gear was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for LeBlanc.

Matt LeBlanc’s exotic cars

While his biggest love is Porsche, Matt also enjoys dabbling in other brands of four-wheeled transport too.

Satisfying his ‘hot hatch’ requirements is his Ford Focus RS, an all-wheel-drive hatchback complete with ‘drift’ button. He also has a classic American muscle car in the form of a De Tomaso Pantera, complete with its room-shaking V8 engine.

Good friend and previous co-host Chris Harris also revealed that Matt has bought himself a Ferrari Testarossa, which will sit nicely alongside his Pantera, and his other Ferraris — a 360 Modena and 458 Italia.

Perhaps the most unusual car in his collection is a Fiat X1/9. This diminutive, rear-engined Italian sports car must’ve struck a chord with LeBlanc, as it’s totally different from anything else in his collection.


With its mix of iconic classics and modern supercars, Matt’s collection is enviable – just don’t tell him you’re a fan of the Porsche 914, whatever you do.
