PAGANI ZONDA 760 L

The rarest motorcycle Hamilton owns is a £1.6m Pagani Zonda made entirely for him.

The exterior and interior are both purple, and at the request of the sports star, he opted for a manual transmission instead of the usual sequential transmission.

His reason? Because he hated getting behind the wheel of it at first.

He once said: “Zonda drives terrible!

“It’s the best sounding car I’ve owned, but handling wise it’s the worst.”

That may be why in 2015, Hamilton was involved in an accident that caused some significant damage to the beloved engine.

PROJECT MERCEDES-AMG ONE

Lewis embarked on Project One last year, though it’s even supposed to be out until late 2022.

He was heavily involved in the production of the plug-in hybrid sports car capable of reaching a top speed of 217 mph.

Only 275 pieces will be released at a cost of around £2 million.

Let’s make that number 274 now, because Hamilton already has one.

MERCEDES-AMG SLS BLACK

He already owns an SL Black Series, so why not add an SLS, right?

Hamilton, who clearly has a need for speed, added this supercar to his garage perhaps because it is the fastest Mercedes produced.

Powered by a 6.2-liter V8 producing 622 horsepower – the SLS can reach a top speed of 196 mph.

It also hits 0-60 in just 3 seconds – making it the ideal car for Hamilton to get the thrill of on the track. For the £230k price tag, that’s just what you’d expect really.

MCLAREN P1

Despite parting ways with the McLaren team, Hamilton can’t feel too heartbroken for his former owners as in 2015 he added a £2million P1 to his extensive list of races. mine.

The P1 owns a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 petrol engine, combined with an electric motor, which means the supercar has a total capacity and torque of 903 horsepower and torque. twist 980 Nm.

In practice, that means it’s fast and powerful, able to hit top speeds of 217 mph and 0-60 mph in less than 2.7 seconds.

The second vintage bike in his fleet, fans of the Hollywood movie Gone In 60 Seconds may recognize this motorcycle as a resemblance to one of the Eleanor models from the film.

Hamilton customized by the Oklahoma Classic Recreations store at an additional cost.

At auction these can fetch £750k, and you can bet Hamilton’s is in top condition. That said, we doubt he’ll sell it.

THE BEST OF REST

When the Mercedes-Maybach 6 debuted in 2016, Hamilton was sure he had a concept car in hand.

The 2×2 coupe is all-electric and can run for up to 200 miles before needing to be recharged.

Hamilton also has another Mercedes – the Maybach S600, which is a luxury chauffeur with a partition separating the front and rear seats.

Both engines are worth around £800,000 in total.

And Hamilton doesn’t mind swapping four wheels for two – sometimes taking his £6,500 Honda CRF450RX Motocross bike around the dirt roads of California.

Then there’s his Maverick X3 dune bug which will set him back around £20k, which is also electrically themed with his eco-warrior status.
