Most of the celebrities that we know of today are so rich that they don’t know what to do with all the money they earned in their career. Some of the richest people that currently exist are either rappers, actors, football players, TV show hosts, and surprisingly, comedians. These people are loved by practically everyone, and with so much money in their hands, they try to invest it in something that they love and cherish, and that something is often cars.
If you ask men to pick from either getting their leg chopped off or seeing someone destroy their million-dollar car, I'm pretty sure we'll see some men hopping on one leg. The purpose of this crude analogy is to demonstrate how much we love cars and how we can’t get enough of them. The collection that we've compiled below is based on the same kind of people we've mentioned above. The collection of cars they have is so impressive that I was quite surprised by some of them.
The collection below has a lot of variety, ranging from people who buy these cars to show off to other celebrities or for the paparazzi, or they buy these cars because of their aesthetics or the history behind them, or they just buy them just because they can. So sit back, relax, get some popcorn, and enjoy the list. Let's go!
20. The Sultan of Brunei
I admit that this guy isn't a celebrity and that hardly anyone knows who this guy is. But I think he deserves to have his name on the list since he's the richest of the known royalties and he owns the largest car collection in the world. He's so rich that once, Obama told him to go shopping in the US so that the economy would receive a boost of income. His car collection consists of nearly 5,000 cars! I wonder how he fits all of them in his garage…. Anyway, he owns close to 300 Ferraris, 11 McLaren F1s, and 600 Rolls Royces! At this point, I'm envious of this dude. If he could sell all the cars in his collection, it would give him close to $300,000,000!!
19. Jay Leno
Jay Leno is a comedian who hosted the hit comedy show called the “Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” Jay Leno hosted the Tonight Show for nearly a decade, and he gained popularity for his creative, funny, and entertaining skits.

Jerry is a car lover by heart; more accurately, he's a Porsche lover by heart. He owns nearly 43 Porsches. To give you an idea of how vast his car collection is, he had to rent an airport hanger just to store his collection of cars. The most notable ones in his collection are the 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder. The reason why this Porsche was so expensive was its racing pedigree. Only 90 were ever made.
