Default Which YouTuber's car is your favourite?

Disclaimer :- I am in no way affiliated or associated to the Youtuber mentioned and am simply a hardcore fan

We all watch YouTube and it has quite a vibrant automotive community. From Vloggers to Hardcore Racing teams there is no dearth of entertainment.

The aim of this thread is to discover new channels and petrol-heads around the world while drooling at their cars in the process. You may mention any car from a humble Maruti 800 to a Bugatti Chiron. It doesn't necessarily have to be modified/ or be a project car. However do write in detail as to why you love that car in particular.
So here's my favourite car that a Youtuber owns -

Rob Dahm's AWD 4 Rotor Mazda RX-7

This is as I like to believe literally "The stuff of dreams". It's AWD , has a 4 rotor with a massive turbo attached to it (dishing out 1000hp when it's AWD and 1200hp when in RWD) and it's also a Mazda RX-7. What more do you need?

And if the specs weren't enough to blow your mind, this guy and his team has built the entire thing using the RX-7 body frame as a base. I'm talking the engine, chassis members, roll cage, the front and rear diffuser, the flat floor, fuel tanks and many other miscellaneous pieces. It's shod with 285/40 R18 at the front and a gigantic 320/35 R18 at the rear. He was inspired by Hoonigan Racing's Hoonicorn and there's an interesting story behind that too. He wanted to procure some parts from the Hoonicorn for his build, however the suppliers refused to sell it to him as he wasn't affiliated with Hoonigan Racing. So he called up and pretended to be a team member of Hoonigan and got the parts he wanted. I don't know if anything can beat that in terms of sheer humor and creativity

The car isn't finished yet and is still being built on his YouTube channel. And there's also talks of him racing it on a quarter mile with another car soon.

As a bonus I'd like to attach a video of his AWD burnout at the Hoonigan Burn Yard :-

I request members to keep the thread going!

That's a great thread idea!!

Although I don't have a personal favourite per se, my favourite car collection of a YouTuber would definitely be Shmee150. His collection is not just about exclusivity but the performance one can get at different price range.

Here's the list-https://shmee150.com/shmeemobiles-overview/

Apart from that if I had to pin point to one car, it'd be Jay Leno's McLaren F1.

Don't see Indian Youtubers mentioned here.
I really like M Salim Khan's Polo (MSK). It's quite wacky and will grab your attention on the road.


I also like Geekyranjiths car collection. The favourite one being the 330i. Seen it around Hyderabad a couple of times.

I completely agree. Schmee150's collection is truly very unique. And even though Jay Leno has quite a exhaustive collection as well you sure can't go wrong with a F1! It is truly a masterpiece of art and engineering.

Can't go wrong with either of those cars!

Great idea for a thread.
I am a bit biased towards unmodified, daily driver cars, just like the YouTuber I will mention shortly. In his trademark style, "THISSS (pause) is Doug DeMuro's Range Rover!"
Which YouTuber's car is your favourite?-range-rover.jpg
This was his daily driver for quite sometime till a few years back. More than the car, I was glued to the entire ownership experience. I was new into the idea of owning a used car back then and wanted to understand maintenance of used luxury cars that seemed a bargain buy to me back then.
It was actually his videos regarding the 'CarMax bumper-to-bumper warranty' of this Range Rover that brought me to his channel. He still owns the car but is not daily driving it. This was replaced a few years back by a Mercedes AMG E63 Wagon which got replaced early this year with a Kia Stinger GT, which was again replaced by the new Defender 110, which is surprising as he already owns the older Defender (in North American spec as he proudly says). He also owns a Ford GT. Some of the prominent cars that I can recall him owning previously are a Ferrari 360, an R32 GTR, a Dodge Viper, a Nissan Cube, a Hummer H1, a Cadillac CTS station wagon and a Nissan S-Cargo. I find the entire list funny and amusing.

Posting a few pics of his current cars, sourced from his accounts and sites.

A close second to Doug's Range Rover (and from the opposite end of the reliability spectrum) will be Scotty Kilmer's 94 Celica that he owns. He had bought it used for peanuts and as a 26 year old car run over 2 lac miles, it has been more reliable than many newer cars which he features on his channels.

I had seen this channel popping up here there in my recommended quite a lot of times and Now that I've read this I'm definitely going to subscribe! His collection has to be the quirkiest I've seen!

Sweet thread idea! Going to our homepage today .

Jay Leno is now officially a YouTuber (link to channel) and his garage is my favourite. Heck, here's a guy who has owned a Carrera GT for almost 2 decades!



The man has lots of money, but he has more taste:

Nice to see another Doug fan in here.

Another Indian entry worth a mention is Rohan Albal from PowerDrift. Very talented & two sweet cars:

Thanks a lot GTO, It's an honour! While Jay Leno has one of the best collections in the world, it's the (comparatively) humble Evo that has caught my fancy! That colour combined with hood looks like something straight out of NFS

Producermichael, for his awesome cars, houses and jewellery. Though I like his watch collection the most. I think he might have spent millions on just watches alone.

For me, Shmee 150's Senna is to die for! Not only that, I love his entire collection (675LT, Senna, SLS Black, AMG GTR Pro/Roadster, Aston Martin Vantage GT8, Ferrari GTC4 Lusso,
G63 AMG, Ford Focus RS). It's a very diverse and unique collection of cars which is simply too hard to ignore.

We also have Horsepower Cartel's Twin-Turbo Nissan 300ZX & Wald Design S-Class from India which are great too!

Great collections, I love all cars of Goonzquad collection, my most favorite car of theirs is the Mustang GT, just listen to the engine and exhaust sound.



Also their 700+ BHP Jeep Trackhawk, it sounds like a beast.

My favourite youtuber's car collection has to be of Sam from seenthroughglass. This is because his collection never has the newest shiniest car on the block ,it's always something which was special in its prime time and now is kind of forgotten. BTW this guy did a series on his channel known as the Drive the world where he went around the world in his Porsche 911 carerra T.

This is his recently acquired BMW X3 M40i as a workhorse and a daily driver.

His jewel of the collection the Manual Ferrari 360 along with his project car the abarth 595 Biposto and the 911 40Jahre.

If I had to pinpoint to a single car it might be MrJWW's Ferrari F12 TDF

The DIY god of YouTube. He transformed the Mustang from a car that couldn't even start to an absolutely terrific drift build! And any Hummer H1 is a special IMO!

I'm pleasantly surprised to see twin turbo builds in India! I had no idea that something like that was even possible in India and have instantly subscribed!

I really like Yianni Charalambous the Celebrity Car wrapper and YouTuber!

He owns some fantastic cars and is a thorough Lamborghini fan! He has the Aventador S, Urus and recently added the Porsche Taycan to his collection! His company Yiannimize recently wrapped a Bugatti Chiron in chrome blue and it looks sweet.
