You might be surprised to find out that David Beckham has a collection of 10 cars. Well, the former footballer is not just famous for his football skills, but also for his impressive car collection.
He owns a Bugatti Veyron, Ferrari 458 Italia and Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren as well as Bentley Continental GT Speed. In addition to these luxury cars he owns two Audis: an R8 (a supercar produced by Audi) and a Q7 (a midsize crossover SUV). He also has a Range Rover Sport Supercharged and finally one Lamborghini Aventador Roadster which costs $US400K according to Motor1.com
You may be familiar with Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James as one of the most successful basketball players to ever play in the NBA. A man with such a high profile is bound to have a few cars in his collection, so we decided to take a look at what LeBron owns and see if it's worth all the hype.
LeBron has been spotted driving an Audi R8 Spyder, which would make sense given that he is from Akron, Ohio—a city known for its love of automobiles (and hockey). In 2014 he was even spotted behind the wheel of a Mercedes-Benz Maybach S600 Pullman Guard Armored SUV during his visit to China; however, this particular vehicle wasn't actually owned by him but rather provided by sponsors as part of their agreement with him for promoting their product in China (though it does make us wonder why he would need such an expensive car).
As far as celebrities go, Lelyn packs quite an arsenal: He owns three Ferraris: A Ferrari 458 Italia Spider convertible designed by Pininfarina; another Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano coupe designed by Pininfarina; and finally a Ferrari F12 Berlinetta coupé designed by Pininfarina—and yes all three were designed by Pininfarina!
You have probably seen Simon Cowell in one of his famous Rolls Royces or maybe even his Bentley. He has four Rolls Royces and two Bentleys at this moment.

Simon Cowell has a collection of 4 Rolls Royces and 2 Bentleys. He also owns an Audi R8, a Ferrari F430 Spider, Range Rover and last but not least a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder.
One of the most notable celebrities in the world, Simon Cowell has a collection of 4 Rolls Royces and 2 Bentleys. He also owns an Audi R8, a Ferrari F430 Spider, Range Rover and last but not least a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder.
Cowell is one of the richest people in Australia with an estimated net worth of $450 million. His love for expensive cars started when he was just 18 years old when he bought his first Mercedes Benz SL350 convertible that cost around $140 thousand dollars back then!
Nicolas Cage is an actor who has won 2 Academy Awards. He’s appeared in a number of films, including Ghost Rider and Leaving Las Vegas. He also owns a vast collection of vintage cars and motorcycles, with around 70 vehicles in total.
The most expensive car in his collection is the Mercedes-Benz SLR Stirling Moss which he bought for $1 million back in 2005. This car has been customized by the famous McLaren Special Operations department to have more power than normal and it sits at #7 on the list of most expensive celebrity cars ever sold at auction (ahead of Elvis Presley’s Ferrari 250 GT California SWB by just $100).
Nicolas Cage wasn’t always so wealthy – he had some financial problems after divorcing wife Patricia Arquette in 2000 – but he now has plenty of money to spare thanks to his acting career!
Nicolas Cage also owns a 1963 Cadillac Cien Concept, a rare bird indeed. He is also said to have been the proud owner of multiple Ferraris as well as a Shelby Cobra. Not surprisingly, we didn’t find them in his garage!
If you are an avid car collector like Nicolas Cage, it's probably safe to assume that you have a taste for the finer things in life. From exotic cars to private jets and even yachts, it has been reported that Nicolas Cage spent over US$150 million on his car collection alone.
However, despite being one of the most expensive celebrity car collections in the world, there are some vehicles that he apparently doesn't own. For example:
The 1963 Cadillac Cien Concept (above) is a rare bird indeed. It was designed by Harley Earl and featured an aluminium body and gull-wing doors similar to those found on aircrafts at the time!
Ferraris - We know that he had multiple Ferraris as well as a Shelby Cobra but none were found when we visited his home! That’s because these three vehicles were stolen during their time at Nicolas Cage’s house!
