Lewis Hamilton AMG 1

Lewis Hamilton has collected his cars for very specific financial reasons. Lewis Hamilton Cars Collection is based in Monaco and Los Angeles. He treats most of them as investments. In the past he has said that he doesn’t have a wide financial knowledge base, but what he does have is a great car knowledge.

Because of this he invests in cars and treats them like that – an investment. He is very cautious about keeping the mileage low on his highest valued cars. Lewis keeps a tow truck on retainer in Los Angeles. When he has had his fun for the day, rather than continuing to drive them he calls the two truck to collect his cars so as to keep the mileage low and the value up.

“If I think I’ve had my excitement quota for the day I’ll ring him up and he’ll collect it from wherever I am,”

What Cars Does Lewis Hamilton Own?

Lewis chooses the cars in his collection with a fine eye for future value. From owning one of only 275 limited edition Mercedes-AMG Project One to the $15.6 Million he paid for a McLaren F1 (Chassis 044) each has incredible growth potential.

Hamilton’s Car collection includes.

Mercedes EQC

The Mercedes EQC is an all-electric compact luxury SUV produced by Mercedes-Benz. It is part of the automaker’s EQ family, which represents their line of electric vehicles. The EQC was introduced as Mercedes’ first fully electric SUV and aims to combine the luxury and performance aspects of the brand with emissions-free driving.

The EQC features a sleek and modern design with typical Mercedes styling cues, both on the exterior and interior. It is equipped with a dual-motor setup, one for each axle, providing all-wheel drive capability. The combined power output and torque from these electric motors deliver impressive performance and a smooth driving experience.

The electric SUV is powered by a large lithium-ion battery pack, located in the vehicle’s floor, to optimize weight distribution and maintain a low center of gravity. This setup provides the EQC with a respectable driving range on a single charge, making it suitable for daily commuting and long-distance journeys.

Inside the cabin, the Mercedes EQC boasts a high level of comfort and luxury, incorporating premium materials and advanced technology features typical of Mercedes-Benz vehicles. Various driver-assistance systems and infotainment options contribute to the overall driving experience and passenger convenience.

This SUV is a great machine that can “race” from 0 to 62 mph in five seconds. That must seem pretty slow fora seven times F1 world champion but is very useful in traffic. Whatever it feels like, Lewis must be getting a kick from doing his bit for the environment.

Lewis Hamilton Cars – Mercedes-AMG Project One

Mercedes-AMG One

Lewis was one of the recipients of the 275 limited edition Mercedes-AMG Project One in 2022 (he was also involved in the specifying of this beast.)

Given his interest in sustainable fuels and powertrains, Hamilton was involved in the production of the plug-in hybrid machine by testing the prototypes.

The Project One is capable of reaching a top speed of close to 220mph. Mercedes delivered the first cars in late 2022.

Mercedese only built 275 Project Ones at a cost of around £2 million each. Hamilton bought one for himself, and another for his father Anthony.

Other famous people who own one of these rare cars are.

  • Former Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg
  • David Coulthard
  • Mark Wahlberg

Lewis Hamilton Cars – Mercedes AMG SLS Black Series

Lewis owns a US$ 300,000 SLS Black, a V8 engine producing 622 horsepower.

Mercedese first launched the AMG SLS Black series in 2015.

The engine produces 720 horsepower and 590-pound feet of torque.

The engine will accelerate the car (which weighs 3,578 pounds) to 62 mph in 2.9 seconds and continues powering its way up to a top speed of 202 mph.

Check out the drag race between the AMG GTR and the Nissan GTR. The Nissan is quicker off the mark, but the Mercedese soon hauls the Nissan in.

The engine produces 577 horsepower and 516-pound feet of torque – if that doesn’t mean much to you the effect is that it accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds and continues on to a top speed of 198 mph.

Lewis Hamilton Cars – Mercedes Benz AMG G63 6X6

Lewis owns a Mercedes Benz AMG G63 6X6, which costs $615,000 and which he purchased in 2015.

This is a capable and substantial six-wheeled off-roading truck which cost the Lewis around half a million pounds – of course there may have been a staff discount! One of the perks of being a 7-time world champion, of which six were with the Mercedes team!

Lewis Hamilton Cars – Mercedes-Maybach S600

When Hamilton feels like whipping around in utter luxury, he can also peel out in his Mercedes-Maybach S600 which has a silky smooth 6-litre V12 engine.

With a top speed of 250km/h it is not in the same league as Lewis’s other cars – however in the comfort department it is streets ahead of them.

Lewis Hamilton Cars – 1966 Shelby 427 Cobra

This model of the infamous Shelby Cobra was first manufactured in January 1965. The car has a hand-built steel frame body with aluminum body panels, made in England. Shelby shipped the frame from the United Kingdom to Detroit for assembly.

Lewis Hamilton Cars – McLaren P1

Lewis purchased the P1 when he left McLaren to join Mercedes. It is worth $1.15 million.

Lewis Hamilton Cars – McLaren F1

Lewis’s relationship with the McLaren F1 is interesting. Ron Dennis promised him a McLaren F1 if he won two championships with the team. Although Lewis won one, he moved to Mercedese before he had a chance to win a 2nd championship.

Because of this he never received the promised F1.

In 2022 he made the dream come true by paying $15.6 Million for a McLaren F1 (Chassis 044).

Lewis Hamilton Cars – Ferrari LaFerrari

It’s no slouch by anyone’s reckoning.

Lewis Hamilton cars Aperta

It has a 6.3-liter V12 which produces 949 hp and torque of 664 lb-ft. This monster of a motor accelerates the car from 0 – 60 mph in 3 seconds, and continues on to +217 mph.

The current price of a LaFerrari Aperta Price is $4.5 Million.

Mini Cooper

This is Lewis’s first car.

Can-Am Maverick X31967

This is simply a fun side-by-side vehicle. Lewis’s Turbo RR models produce 195 hp. It has a semi-active suspension system that utilizes an onboard computer, sensors on each of the four corners, and fast-acting adjusters within the dampers.

This means Lewis can stay in control at the speeds he is used to even in the wildest of terrain.

Cadillac Escalade

Lewis Hamilton Cars escallade

Lewis owns a Cadillac Escalade valued at $76,195. He has always said that off the track he does not really enjoy driving.

The Escalade makes this a perfect car in which to be driven around in.

Pagani Zonda 760 LH

The LH after the Zonda’s name the ‘LH’ is – you guessed it Lewis Hamilton.

Hamilton owned a £1.6 million Pagani Zonda which was specifically manufactured as a bespoke option for the World Champion, before selling it off during 2021. His views on the car were that it was terrible to drive! Although he did concede that it was the best-sounding car he owned. He said that handling-wise it was the worst.

Pagani manufactured five special-edition Zonda 760s which were special orders – Hamilton was one of them.

The car is capable of 0-100km/h in three-and-a-half seconds, and was fitted with a manual gearbox – at Hamilton’s request.

“The Zonda is terrible to drive!” Hamilton once commented on the car. “It’s the best-sounding car I own, but handling-wise it’s the worst.”

Lewis Hamilton

This might explain why Hamilton was involved in a collision in Monte Carlo in 2015, that resulted in damage that required work from Pagani to fix!
