When it comes to collecting expensive cars, only few celebrities can go up against the iconic English retired football player. From what we learnt, Beckham has over 21 cars in his garage. Check out some of the luxury cars in David Beckham’s car collection:
2.1 Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe
The 2-door Phantom Drophead Coupe by the BMW-owned British company is one of the most impressive luxury cars out there. For someone like David Beckham, such a model is a must-have for him. He has the black version with some modifications to boost its appearance and performance. The English man has added black rims of 24 inches to his version for a sportier look. David Beckham’s Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead is powered by a V12 6.75-liter engine with an output of 400 horsepower and 500 pound feet of torque.
2.2 Bentley Mulsanne
This Mulsanne was introduced by the British luxury marque back in 2010. Beckham couldn’t wait for a year before he got his own. Beckham has been spotted many times coming out from the rear seat of this beautiful and spacious luxury model. His Bentley Mulsanne was fitted with a V8 6.75-liter engine, all mated to 8-speed automatic transmission. Being a British man to the core, Beckham is a big fan of British-owned luxury models and he decided to go for the black-coloured Mulsanne. Although, the Mulsanne flagship has been discontinued but remains one of the most luxurious models from the luxury brand.
2.3 McLaren MP4-12C Spider
This is another British luxury model in David Beckham’s car collection. It’s a rare model to see even in most expensive neighborhoods. David got this high-end variant of this model in 2013. The McLaren MP4-12C Spider was powered by a V8 3.8-liter engine with an output up to 616 horsepower. Once again, Beckham did go for the black version. Does this make Beckham’s favourite colour black? Probably, he loves the way these cars look in that colour.
2.4 Audi S8
The retired footballer star’s collection is an exhibition of insanely powerful and expensive cars. The high-powered exotic sedan Audi S8 is one of those beasts we were talking of. It came fitted with twin-turbocharged V8 4.0-liter engine with a generative output of 520 horsepower. As usual, the Miami FC co-owner decided to replace the original chrome trim with black paint, making it all-black luxury sedan.
2.5 Bentley Bentayga
The Bentley Bentayga is one SUV most celebrities are super crazy about. Since Beckham is a proper English man, we couldn’t expect less. He has many Bentley models and the Bentayga is another of such models you will find in his garage. The Bentley holds the street cred as the most powerful, most exclusive and fastest SUV on the planet. His Bentley Bentayga came fitted by a turbocharged V12 6.0-liter engine, coughing out as much as 600 horsepower. The luxury SUV is spacious, making it ideal for Beckham’s family to have an ultimate road experience.
2.6 Aston Martin V8 Vantage
David Beckham isn’t all about recent luxury cars. He collects classic cars as well. This V8 Vantage by Aston Martin, another British luxury carmaker, is a testament to such. Thankfully, we are seeing different colour aside the usual exquisite taste for black cars. This vintage convertible model is red-coloured (deep). Surprisingly, it can run quite well from its V8 5.4-liter engine delivering up to 403 horsepower. We guess this car is held dearly by the English man family as it is a rare model.
2.7 Jaguar F-Type Project 7
Since Beckham was once an ambassador to the brand, it is normal for him to ride in one of their best luxury cars out there. He reportedly got this model on Christmas as a gift to himself. Only 250 units have been made till date. The Jaguar F-Type Project 7 model was powered by a V8 5.0-liter engine with an output of 575 horsepower and a peak speed of 186 mph. there is a possibility that he got this 2-seater sportscar free for image boosting. We sure expect him to cruise this car only with victoria since it isn’t that spacious on the inside for additional 4 children.
2.8 Bentley Continental GT Supersports
The Continental GT Supersports is one of the most sought-after models from the British automaker. This is unarguably the first of Beckham’s numerous Bentleys to take an exception to the black exterior paintjob. It came painted in Beige colour; a colour handpicked by Victoria Beckham as a way of differentiating it from her black-coloured Continental GTC. We didn’t expect less from its road performance since it offered a W12 twin-turbocharged engine with an output of 621 horsepower and 590 pound feet of torque.
2.9 Rolls Royce Ghost
The intimidating black-coloured Rolls Royce Ghost is another stunning model in David Beckham’s car collection. This model shares man similarities with his Drophead Coupe. It is powered by a V12 6.6-liter engine, producing an output of 560 horsepower and 575 pound feet of torque. It was also fitted with some aftermarket products such as custom-made massive black rims to blend well with the exterior paint.
2.10 Jaguar XJ
In 2013, David Beckham welcomed this new black-coloured hot wheel into his garage. Although, isn’t as powerful as other cars in his collection but its performance is pretty decent to someone of much auto pedigree like Beckham. It came powered by a V6 3.0-liter supercharged engine with an output of 430 horsepower.
2.11 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti
We almost thought David Beckham wouldn’t have Italian taste until we caught glimpse of this masterpiece at his Malibu vacation home. His Ferrari 612 Scaglietti featured a V12 5.7-liter engine with a top speed of 199 mph and generative output of 533 horsepower. Beckham reportedly got this fast road beast when Harper Seven was born. What a way to celebrate the birth of the only daughter in his household.
2.12 Ferrari 360 Spider
This is another luxury model from the Italian automaker in his collection. The remarkable performance level of this supercar caught many eyes and one of those admirers was David Beckham. He was so in love with this particular model that he acquired more than one despite its rarity. The Ferrari 360 Spider offered a V8 3.6-liter powertrain with an output of 395 horsepower and 276 pound feet of torque.
2.13 Range Rover Evogue
This is another model Beckham took his wife’s design suggestion on. He acquired this luxury SUV in 2013, with a surprising matte-gray colour scheme. This special edition model is quite exclusive and just 200 examples made it to the streets. Luckily, David and his family member got one.
2.14 Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet
Avid Beckham has a reputation for acquiring expensive and insanely fast cars, especially ones with exterior black paint. This particular model Porsche 911 Cabriolet shows us why the London-born businessman and retired athlete loves customizing his cars. Its interior has been upgraded same way it was done for the outside. We heard he put this model for up for sale on the auction in 2011 and was sold for $217,100.
2.15 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
This black Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is one of the highest performing SUVs you will find on the market with impressive off-road capabilities. Beckham reportedly loves driving this as he has spotted in it many times.
3. Victoria and David Beckham house
This magnificent house located at Holland Park in London was jointly acquired by the couple. In 2016, they spent a whopping £8 million to get the building renovated to their taste. The mansion is said to worth around £34 million. The luxury home comes in high taste with facilities such as wine cellar, gym, and separate quarters for their first son and lots more.
