4 Celebrity Garages You Don't Want To Miss

If you are a celebrity or tech gadget know-it-all then you shouldn’t be surprised to find that Jay Leno, Jerry Seinfeld, Adam Carolla, John Travolta and Ralph Lauren top nearly every top five list of celebrity garages out there.  Not only are their garages massive, they are often technically strapped and custom built to house more cars, worth more money than the majority of us will see in our lifetimes.

Whether or not you are a car lover, these massive garages are more expensive than many homes and are quite a feat to behold. In fact, everything about them screams “I’m loaded!”  Let’s take a look and see what makes these garages so remarkable.

Jerry Seinfeld

You may not think that someone living in cramped New York City would have a noteworthy garage, but Jerry Seinfeld has managed to create a two story luxury suite for his Porsche collection.

Not only does this unique home for his cars have five parking spots, an industrial elevator and touch screen controls, he has also included an entire bachelor pad, complete with pool table, flat screens, and a full kitchen. 

The best part is perhaps that it doesn’t look like anything special from outside and you may be hard pressed to find it, even if you know where to look in this packed city.

Ralph Lauren

Even though Jerry Seinfeld’s space is impressive, it doesn’t hold a candle to fashion mega-man Ralph Lauren’s three garages where he sorts his seventy rare sports cars by brand and color for convenience.

Organization is just the beginning though. This impressive car collection is valued as one of the most spectacular and expensive in the world, with some cars equaling between $30-$40 million dollars each.

Jay Leno

While Ralph Lauren’s garage is impressive, Jay Leno’s collection is one of the largest in the world. With everything from a 2013 Aston Martin Vanquish to a 1910 Stanley Steamer, this famous garage was featured in an award-winning web series.

His 17,000 sq-ft garage houses a machine shop and a team of mechanics to keep his 200 cars in perfect working order and, according to those who have seen this massive project, it is more of a museum than a garage.

John Travolta

Last but not least, no one has yet topped Grease’s leading bad boy, John Travolta.  His garage is located on the spot of an old Elephant sanctuary in Ocala, Florida and not only houses his 15 cars, but has a 1.4 mile landing strip for both his jumbo and private jets, which he uses just about as often as his regular car collection.  Why not? After all he is licensed to fly.

Whether you aspire to a lair big enough to house an entire fleet of vehicles or have a landing strip in your plans, it will be hard to beat the car gurus that have made their name in the garage world.
