We Bet You’ve Never Seen a Supercar Garage Like This
This guy has a wild garage with even wilder carsby Josh Conturo, on
When you picture your dream garage, what does it look like? Probably rows of classics worth more than the building they live in or several of the finest Italian supercars that originated on a bedroom wall poster. Also, not just the cars, but everything else inside. Lovely automotive-themed art, perhaps a retro gas pump, and a light-up car logo the size of a dining room table like the ones in Jay Leno’s garage would probably all be thrown in there as well.
As much as we all long for our lives to work out this well, it probably won’t ever happen for a million different reasons. However, now and again, someone gets mightly lucky and gets the opportunity to have such a garage festooned with cars we dream of.
Craig Currie is a British man with one hell of a car collection. The garage is designed to look like an old building on the outside but has all the modern amenities you would expect in the interior. Most notably, the heated floors, mirrors, and the massive Ferrari logo pinned up on the wall right next to a black and a blue racing suit.
Of course, the cars themselves are the main attraction in this video. The first one to be featured is a violet Lamborghini Diablo. It is of the first generation, more than likely from the early 1990s with the pop-up headlights. It has a 5.7-liter V-10 with a five-speed manual gearbox.
The second is a new Land Rover Defender 110. The primary reason for buying this incredibly off-road capable luxury SUV was simply so Currie could have something to carry his dig Zeus around.
Also, seemingly parked just sort of out of the way was a new 992 Porsche 911 Turbo S. Starting at $207,000, it is powered by a twin-turbo 3.8-liter flat six maxing out at 640 horsepower it can manage 0-60 in about 2.6 seconds.
A Rolls Royce Cullinan was parked with the same sort of care and attention. It is only used when Currie feels like driving something a bit more comfortable.
The Aston Martin Vantage GT8 was next. Currie said, "the sound, the noise, that is the only reason it’s in here. It lacks supercar pace." That is correct, it does. The GT8 is powered by a 4.7-liter V-8 capable of 440 horsepower and 361 pound-feet of torque means it is not boring by any means, but it is not going to keep up with much else in the garage.
A pair of Ferraris followed, the 360 Challenge Stradale and the F430 Scuderia. The 360 Challenge Stradale was the first modern Ferrari to be designed more so for use on the track instead of on the road. The F430 followed suit with nearly 80 more peak horsepower.
The final Ferrari to be featured is the 512 Testarossa, which can fetch upwards of $500,000 at auction, and is powered by a flat-12 engine capable of about 420 horsepower. Presumably, it was acquired to live out a Miami Vice fantasy.
The last big-ticket car in the video is the McLaren Senna. We know about this car, the twin-turbo 4-liter V-8 maxing out at 814 horsepower wrapped in one of the ugliest bodies to ever be put on a supercar. All that is to be able to hustle around the track faster than anything else.
Other aspects of the video include stories about Currie’s first cars and learning to drive, a story about sharks, police and the Senna, and something called the dog gravy test.
