And here we go - Donald Trump has been elected as the 45th President of the United States of America. Yes, you heard us right, real-estate mogul and media tycoon, Donald Trump has beaten Democratic Party's Hillary Clinton to become the President of the U.S. Being an automotive portal, we won't go into deep analysis of the results, but we have something different lined up for you.
The king of controversy, Donald Trump is one rich man, thanks to his successful business ventures ranging from real estate to TV shows. And one of the things you buy yourself when you are insanely rich is exotic and rare cars. And President Trump is no different. While his love for limousines is world known, he owns some of the world’s most expensive luxury vehicles and supercars.
Here's a look at the top 5 favourite cars of the real estate mogul turned TV star turned politician - Donald Trump!
Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud
So what's the first car (supposedly) Donald Trump ever bought? A rare and magnificent 1956 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud. If any car could match the extravagant and opulent personality of Donald Trump, it has to be a Rolls Royce, especially a classic one. The British uber-luxury car manufacturer is known to transport royalties of England and they have a liking for it. This might be the reason why Trump chose this vehicle. Interesting!
Mercedes-Bnez SLR McLaren is not only the most expensive cars from Mercedes, but it is also one of the most impressive and expensive cars of all time. In 2003, Mercedes-Benz decided to join hands with supercar manufacturer McLaren and the result was the SLR. Donald Trump couldn't resist much and bought the hold $455,000 supercar in 2005, which was delivered delivered straight to the Trump Tower’s door steps. The Mercedes Benz SLR McLaren runs on a V8 engine with an output of 617 horsepower and was a sensation especially among the rich and famous.
Another Rolls Royce gracing its presence in the garage of President Trump is the new and modern Rolls Royce Phantom. As we mentioned earlier, the astute businessman has a liking towards the royal car manufacturer and hence owns a classic one. But for day-to-day life, Trump needed something modern and equally charming and hence the RR Phantom. The customized Phatom can have some gold touching inside the cabin (Trump loves gold) and could cost more than its selling price of around $500,000.
Lamborghini Diablo VT
Being the extravagant and flamboyant person that he is, Donald Trump had to own this ultra rare and ultra sensational piece of machinery - the Lamborghini Diablo VT. And to add a personal touch to the supercar, Trump had a plaque with his name installed on his Blue colored Diablo VT’s door. This particular Lambo was designed and engineered to be better than the ’74-’90 Lamborghini Countach. Launched in 1990, the Diablo came with 6.0-litre V12 engine with a top speed of 320 kilometers per hour.
Chevrolet Camaro Indianapolis 500 Pace Car
Save the best for the last is what we have done here. Trump used to host a popular TV show called The Apprentice and during the height of the popularity of The Apprentice in 2011, he was asked to drive his prized possession, the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Indianapolis 500 Pace Car at the 100th Indianapolis 500. While Trump couldn't complete the act due to some controversy, it would have been fun to see him drive the 500 Camaro Pace Car with a 6.2-litre V8 engine and a color scheme that matched that of a ’69 Camaro pace car.
