Inside billionaire Elon Musk’s car collection featuring Teslas and a BOND car

ELON Musk is one of the richest people in the world who also happens to own the fifth most valuable car company, Tesla.

It should come as no surprise that he has a diverse car collection that includes some of the fastest and most expensive cars in the world.

When Elon isn’t running one of his six companies, including Twitter, which he recently bought, he loves to drive.

But unlike many high-profile celebrities, Musk doesn’t have a fleet of the latest supercars.

Of course he has some Teslas, but also some far more unusual cars that are more nostalgic acquisitions than status symbols.

Ford Model T

It is one of the most famous cars in the world and is widely considered to be the first modern production vehicle.

It was simple, robust and arguably paved the way for the automobile age and the world we live in today.

Elon Musk got this car as a gift from a friend.

A 1978 model was Elon Musk’s first car, which he had for years before becoming one absurdly rich.

He bought the car in 1993 for $1,400 and was able to enjoy a massive upgrade just six years later.

McLaren F1

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, having just made $22 million in Silicon Valley.

And to his credit, he used the machine whenever he could, including on ordinary trips in California.

But eventually he crashed en route to a business meeting and although his passenger was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident, both occupants were unharmed.

Elon Musk sold the car for a handsome profit – McLaren F1s are now worth around £20million – and his company Tesla has since been producing electric cars that surpass the F1’s acceleration.

Tesla Cybertruck

The Cybertruck looks like something out of a mobile game and isn’t one of the better ones.

But it’s one of the few exciting models in the important — if not particularly lucrative — electric truck segment.

Tesla’s Cybertruck isn’t on sale yet, but Elon Musk has been driving his prototype around.

Order books are expected to open in 2022, with prices starting around $40,000.

Lotus Esprit (amphibious)

Elon Musk undoubtedly sees some similarities to James Bond.

And now he has one of them The most famous cars of 007the amphibious Lotus Esprit of 1976 The spy who loved me.

There are clear similarities between this and the Cybertruck.

And while the movie prop isn’t actually kitted out for use as an amphibious vehicle, it does have some submarine capabilities.

Tesla roadster

It was probably the first electric car that was really cool.

And while the Roadster bears little resemblance to the Model 3 and Model X parked on Britain’s more upscale streets, it’s a big part of Tesla’s history.

The battery electric sports car was based on the lightweight Lotus Elise, a famous British sports car famous among petrolheads.

The Tesla Roadster is very rare with fewer than 2,500 sold.

It is also the only car in space.

Tesla Model X

Musk has seven kids, so a two-seat sports car for the school run isn’t worth much.

He was spotted traveling in Tesla’s Model X SUV, which has three rows of seats inside and room for seven people.

Tesla Model S plaid

Elon has admitted that he spends most of his time driving a Tesla Model S.

That makes sense as it’s arguably the best looking Tesla on sale and one of the most comfortable to drive.

The plaid version of the Model S has 1020 hp and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in a claimed 1.9 seconds – useless in most situations, but cool stats.

Jaguar E Type

Apparently, the Jaguar E-Type was one of the first cars Musk really fell in love with as a younger man.

If he had the money, he had to have one, but it wasn’t all easy.

It was reportedly broken on the way home from the dealer and hasn’t been particularly reliable since.
