Inside the garage of Tesla founder billionaire Elon Musk, priceless British sports cars at the futuristic Cybertruck
ELON Musk is one of the richest people in the world, with a net worth of billions of dollars – and a car collection to match.
The Tesla boss clearly appreciates a wide variety of vehicles, from humble vintage cars to the latest electric models produced by his company.
Ford Model T
It is one of the most famous cars in the world and is widely regarded as the first modern mass-produced vehicle.
It was simple, sturdy, and arguably paved the way for the automotive age and the world we live in today.
Elon Musk received this car from a friend.
BMW 3 Series
The 320i was one of BMW’s most iconic sedans and possibly the car many people think of when they hear the name “3 Series”.
A 1978 model was Elon Musk’s first car, which he owned for years before becoming absurdly wealthy.
He bought the car for $ 1,400 in 1993 and was able to enjoy a massive upgrade six years later.
The McLaren F1 is one of the greatest cars of all time.
The beautiful three-seater was the fastest production car in the world for over a decade.
Elon Musk bought his McLaren F1 for $ 1 million in 1999 when he had just made $ 22 million in Silicon Valley.
And to his credit, he used the machine as much as he could, including on ordinary trips around California.
But eventually, it crashed on its way to a business meeting, and although its passenger was not on their seatbelt at the time of the crash, the two occupants were not wounded.
Elon Musk sold the car for a big profit – McLaren F1s are now worth around £ 20million – and his company Tesla has since produced electric cars that exceed F1 acceleration.
Tesla Cyber Truck
The Cybertruck looks like something out of a cellphone game, and not one of the best.
But it’s one of the few exciting models in the large – but not particularly lucrative – electric vehicle industry.
Tesla’s Cybertruck isn’t on sale yet, but Elon Musk has driven his prototype.
Order books are expected to open in 2022, with prices starting at around $ 40,000.
Lotus Esprit (amphibious)
Elon Musk arguably sees himself as having similarities to James Bond.
And now he owns one of the most famous cars of 007, the 1976 Amphibious Lotus Esprit from The spy who loved me.
There are clear similarities between this and the Cybertruck.
And while the movie prop isn’t actually equipped for use as an amphibious car, it does have underwater capabilities.
It was probably the first electric car to be properly cooled.
And while the Roadster bears little resemblance to the Model 3 and Model X parked on the more lavish streets of the UK, it’s a big part of Tesla’s history.
The battery-powered electric sports car was based on the lightweight Lotus Elise, a famous British sports car famous for gasoline.
The Tesla Roadster is very rare, with less than 2,500 sold.
It is also the only car in space.
