Our celebrity article today covers the ten most expensive cars that are/were once a part of Formula One racer Sebastian Vettel’s garage. Sebastian Vettel is one of the most successful F1 drivers of all time, having won four F1 Drivers’ Championships in his career. On the track, he impressed all of us with his pure speed and talent. Off-the track and in the real world, Vettel has owned some cars that the rest of us could only dream of owning.

The 35-year old former world champion, Sebastian Vettel, has driven for some of the biggest F1 teams in the world, like Red Bull, Ferrari, and Aston Martin. Similarly, outside the F1 paddock, Sebastian has been the owner of some of the most well-known cars in the world. Although his collection isn’t as extensive or diverse as some of his racing rivals, such as Lewis Hamilton, Vettel's automobile collection is nonetheless highly impressive. The current number of cars in his garage has decreased in the past year after he decided to sell eight of his cars. Still, he has been the owner of a number of extremely rare and one-of-a-kind vehicles.

He has owned cars from companies such as Mercedes-Benz, Aston Martin, and BMW. Since Vettel was with the Ferrari F1 team, it’s not surprising that he had a few Ferraris in his garage. In fact, over the course of his life, Sebastian has owned no fewer than 9 Ferraris in total, a number that would put car collectors to shame. So, without further ado, here is a look at the ten most expensive cars that Sebastian Vettel has owned over the years.

This vehicle embraced a purist commitment to performance. 349 examples of the Ferrari F50 were produced. The estimated value of a 1996 Ferrari F50 is somewhere between $3.5 million and $4 million.
