Popular car YouTuber TheStradman is selling half of his car collection, and has told viewers his asking price for the likes of his Ford GT, a C8 Corvette, his heavily-modded Toyota Supra and more.

Stradman has become one of the most well-known car YouTubers on the platform, thanks especially to his unique taste and matching purple wraps he puts on most of his cars, amassing over 2.5 million subscribers.

Now, though, he’s revealed that those cars are up for sale, with four cars totalling almost $500,000 – which is actually quite a steal when you look at the individual prices.

Stradman’s car collection is a pretty impressive one.

Stradman – real name James Condon – didn’t reveal why he was selling his collection, only hinting that there was something big coming in the future.

Needless to say, with the possibility of making half a million dollars, Condon must have some pretty impressive plans in motion.

While much of his May 23 video was spent discussing the Toyota Supra and his more recently-acquired C8 Corvette, he revealed that he would be selling them all, telling viewers how much he’s looking for each vehicle and opening his emails to offers.

While he explains that it’s not all entirely set in stone, here are the prices he gives for each of the cars he’s looking to sell:

  • Toyota Supra – bidding starts at $70,000 (revealed earlier in the video)
  • C8 Corvette – $105,000
  • Ford GT – $250,000
  • Ford Focus RS – $32,000

Condon did go on to say that while all these cars are up for sale, he might not necessarily sell them all, and it comes down to which ones sell first.

“More than likely, I will not be selling all four,” he said. “If the Corvette sells, if the Supra sells, maybe I can keep the Ford GT.”

He does add, though, that at £250,000, he believes the GT might be one of the cheapest in the nation, so buyers could be getting an absolute steal if they decide to pick this up.

Which cars he eventually ends up selling remains to be seen, but they all look to be pretty good deals, and it will be interesting to see how he decides to use the money for his next big project.

YouTuber reveals “harsh reality” of owning insane supercar collection

TheStradman’s crazy car collection is the envy of any petrolhead, but it turns out there’s a darker side to supercar ownership. In his November 24 video, he reveals just how much he pays for his cars, as well as the upkeep on his fleet, which totals to a staggering amount of money.

From sleeping in his Audi TT to owning a Bugatti Veyron, it’s fair to say YouTuber James ‘TheStradman’ has had an incredible rise to ‘the top’ of his career. But, owning numerous supercars (and one hypercar) doesn’t come cheap, as he has now revealed.

Right from the first video of his Bugatti Veyron ownership series, he has said he wants to be as ‘open and transparent’ as possible with viewers. Given the insane costs of owning a hypercar, James has certainly delivered on his promise, even going as far as breaking down an incredible $30,000 service bill for his subscribers.

TheStradman recently revealed his new-look Bugatti Veyron.

TheStradman reveals insane cost of supercar ownership

Straight away in the video, Stradman gets to the question on everyone’s lips: How much does the Bugatti Veyron cost to own? Well, it turns out that per month, the car costs him $4,765, and he cannot miss a single payment.

This is a lot of money, but given that his housemate Burlacher – who has far fewer followers – revealed he makes nearly $40k/year on YouTube, we imagine TheStradman is making enough to cover the payments, and then some.

With many viewers expecting that TheStradman paid north of $1m for his Veyron, he reveals that the overall price was in fact far less. In total, he paid only $880,000 for the Veyron, which he said will come as “no surprise” for his viewers to learn that it is financed.

Perhaps even more shocking is the amount that he put down – a total of $550,000. We know that he’s sold a lot of cars recently, but that’s still an incredibly large down payment for a car, even if it is a Veyron! James also admits that had he paid for the car outright, he would’ve been “financially wrecked” which is why he put it on finance.

While the Bugatti is sensibly financed, TheStradman revealed that he is the complete and outright owner of both his Lamborghini Aventadors, having paid off their finance agreements. Therefore, it is only a matter of time before the Veyron is also paid off. With his continued success and impressive viewing figures, hopefully, for him, it will be sooner rather than later.
