Lewis Hamilton car collection: F1 star makes huge profit on sale of Pagani Zonda 760LH

It’s safe to say Lewis hamilton knows a thing or two about cars.

Whether in his professional life as Formula 1 driver, or just as a fan of luxury cars that he can afford because of his very successful career.

One of his prettiest cars is without a doubt his Pagani Zonda 760LH, however, that hasn’t stopped him from selling the supercar … and making a huge profit in the process.

The car is only one of five existing models, but this vehicle features an “LH” label, purple exterior, and various specific tweaks ordered by the Mercedes driver.

According to the Italian Quattroruote, according to the F1i, Hamilton sold the car, which he had kept in his garage in Monaco, to a British collector for 10 million euros last month.

After bringing the car back to around 1.4million euros in 2014, the 36-year-old made a staggering profit of around 8.6million euros.

Not bad at all since most cars depreciate over time.

The reason the British driver separates from the vehicle is said to be for ethical reasons.

Hamilton has often expressed concerns about how cars negatively affect the environment and has previously said he is only interested in driving electric or hybrid cars on the road.

He once said at a press conference in 2020: “I don’t drive any of the cars I own anymore. I only drive my (electric Mercedes) EQC. “

The Zonda is powered by a 7.3-liter V12 engine and can go from 0 to 100 km / h in just three seconds, but that hasn’t stopped Hamilton from criticizing the car’s handling.

“It’s the best car I own, but in terms of handling it’s the worst. “

Hamilton has already crashed with this car in 2015 in Monte Carlo.

He crashed into three parked cars ahead of the Brazilian Grand Prix, saying it happened because of “a big party and not much rest for a week and a half”.
