Jeremy Clarkson car collection

Top Gear's biggest star gets to test drive the world’s most exotic cars for fun so no wonder the Jeremy Clarkson car collection is full of amazingly quick, stylish and expensive motors. We take a peek into the man’s garage to see what old motor-mouth likes to drive around in.

Owned or has owned

Over the years Clarkson has owned the following cars:

  • Aston Martin Virage
  • BMW M3 CSL
  • Ferrari F355
  • Ford Escort RS Cosworth
  • Ford GT
  • Honda CR-X
  • Lamborghini Gallardo
  • Lotus Elise 111S
  • Mercedes CLK63 AMG Black

  • Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster
  • Range Rover TDV8 Vogue SE
  • Volkswagen Scirocco 1
  • Volkswagen Scirocco 2
  • Volvo XC90


His Ferrari F355 was the subject of vandalism outside of a country pub. When he left it with the roof down, someone emptied a nearby rubbish bin into it. Perhaps he’d said something annoying in the pub or maybe it was retaliation for something rude that he’d said on TV.


The Ford GT has to rank as the “one that got away”. This was destined to become part of the man’s collection forever as Clarkson is such a massive fan of the Ford GT40 from which the GT takes its inspiration. The Top Gear star was able to secure a place on the shortlist. He waited many years it’s arrival, paid more for it than was expected and then returned it after a month because it had too many faults. As any viewer of Top Gear will know, Clarkson knows a lot about cars but nothing much about fixing them. Ultimately though he bought the car he often describes as “the most unreliable car ever made.”


Clarkson’s current collection of cars is made up of 12 cars including an Aston Martin V8 Vantage and a Porsche 911, which fans of Top Gear will think strange given his apparent hatred of the car.
