For many of us, getting our first car is a rite of passage. However, when your dad is Damon from YouTube channel DDE, getting your first supercar is more important, as shown in DDE’s November 14 video.

YouTubers DailyDrivenExotics (DDE) have had a rollercoaster of a year. From moving house, building the new DDE HQ, and buying (then selling) their first hypercar, it’s been one heck of a year for Damon and Dave.

Any child is lucky to have their parents buy them a car, but when that car is a Lamborghini Murcielago, it’s a whole new ball game. Well, that’s exactly what Damon did for his daughter Mia as a surprise gift. While the rest of the family were in on the act, Mia was entirely clueless.

Damon from DDE surprises daughter with Lamborghini

The Lamborghini Gallardo was Damon’s first supercar, so it makes sense for him to pass that down to his family. While not exactly the same as Damons, Mia’s surprise Lamborghini was still impressive.

Having revealed that both of his daughters have driven most of the DDE fleet, Damon admits that he has been planning the surprise for a while. Earlier in 2020, he bought Mia a Kia for her first car, and decided to interrogate her during the drive to the dealership.

“Besides the Kia, what’s your favorite car brand?” he asked, which was promptly answered with “Lamborghini… because your (Damon) first supercar was a Lamborghini that I got to drive in.” Clearly, the surprise was going to go down well.

At the dealership they bluff for a while, saying: “We’re shopping for a new supercar” before Damon caves and hands Mia the keys to her new Lamborghini Murcielago LP-560. Clearly taken back, she begins crying, and says: “What, wait… no no no… what? I’m like 10, I don’t deserve a Lamborghini!”

After unveiling the car and sitting in it for the first time, she still can’t believe what’s happening. Mia repeatedly asks “are you sure you’re not messing with me? We always joked about this happening but I never thought you’d seriously do it!”

According to Damon, his other daughter Tyla is up next, though she “doesn’t quite have her full license yet” so it may be a while before that happens. Either way, being gifted a supercar is an awesome gift, and we’ll be seeing more of it on the DDE channel soon.

Guy Fieri’s impressive car collection is as on-brand as you’d expect

Celebrity chef Guy Fieri is known for his wacky fashion sense as much as his incredible culinary skills. But, he is also a massive petrolhead, with a very unusual car collection.

The first thing you’ll notice about Guy Fieri’s car collection is that it’s just as wacky as he is. Immediately, you’ll realize there is a distinct yellow theme running throughout, with the majority of his vehicles being painted in the sunshine shade.

Yellow-ness aside, however, the cars in his collection are certainly impressive. From Jeeps to classic V8 muscle ones, Fieri has a vehicle for all situations – so long as it’s acceptable for it to be bright yellow.

Guy Fieri’s classic car collection

Guy is a massive classic car fan, and that’s evident from the moment you see his striking collection.

One of the coolest ones in his garage is his 1969 Chevrolet Corvette. With its exaggerated, bulging arches and drop-top roof, it looks menacing even in the prerequisite yellow paintwork.

His 1976 Jeep CJ-5 may not be the coolest car, but it might be one of his most iconic. Finished in bright yellow with flame decals down the side, this is a vehicle that’ll get noticed wherever Guy takes it.

A self-confessed Chevrolet lover, Guy has a number of cars from the iconic American brand in his collection. Alongside these, he has a number of other awesome and sometimes obscure classics. Here’s the full list:

  • ’69 Chevrolet Corvette
  • Jeep CJ-5
  • Chevrolet Chevelle
  • CSX Cobra
  • ’96 Chevrolet Impala
  • The iconic red Chevrolet Camaro used on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.
  • Pontiac Firebird
  • Custom Chevrolet C10 truck

Guy Fieri’s supercars

It’s not just classics in Fieri’s impressive collection. While a number of his supercars are – you guessed it – bright yellow, that doesn’t make them any less cool.

Opting for a convertible version of the Lamborghini Gallardo no doubt helps keep Fieri’s iconic frosted tips upright at all times, thanks to the impressive performance from the V10 engine.

Alongside the Gallardo, Guy also has a number of other supercars in his collection. While they aren’t all bright yellow, they are all certainly cool enough for Fieri:

  • Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder
  • Aston Martin DB9
  • 2007 Chevrolet Corvette
  • 2011 Chevrolet Camaro

Of course, he owns a number of ‘standard’ cars too, perfect for getting around without any attention. In his fleet, he has a number of trucks including an ’04 GMC Sierra, Chevrolet Kodiak, and even a Cadillac Escalade.

Since a lot of his vehicles are classics, it’s impossible to put a price on Fieri’s impressive collection. Regardless of the cost, though, we can all appreciate the sheer coolness (and yellow-ness) of his collection.
