The British presenter, writer, and journalist, Richard Mark Hammond is a true car enthusiast. He shot to fame with programs such as Men and Motors and Petrolheads, but perhaps his most popular show is Top Gear. His car reviews earned him recognition in his home country and the rest of the world. And great news for Dubai used car owners is that he’s also a car collector. In case you were wondering what his top picks are, here are some of them!
1.Ferrari 550 Maranello 3
What’s a car that all Dubai used car owners love? You guessed it! Hammond really loves fast cars and that is why it is not surprising to see that Ferrari is one of his favorites. To be specific, he really likes the Ferrari 550, about which he has also written in the Top Gear magazine. The Ferrari 550 Maranello is basically a front-engined V12 2-seater car. The main attraction is the car’s 5.5-liter 485 hp 12-cylinder engine. The Ferrari 550 is a treat for those who are a fan of mid-engined supercars. The car can reach top speeds of upto 320 km/h!
2. 2009 Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Spyder
Hammond really has a thing for fast cars. Per a Motor Authority report, he paid a whopping $260,000 for the 2009 Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Spyder, so it’s safe to say that the guy’s love for cars knows no boundaries. Apparently, Hammond worked hard to ensure that he get this particular car in the color black so that it matches his helicopter.
The 2009 Gallardo LP560-4 Spyder has a 5.2-liter V10 engine which can provide 398 pound-feet of torque and 552 horsepower. The supercar goes from 0 to 62 miles per hour in just a matter of few seconds! It also offers improved fuel consumption and CO2 cut.
3. 1969 Jaguar E-Type
Another car that Hammond really likes is the 1969 Jaguar E-Type. Part of the reason he likes this particular model is that it was introduced in the same year that he was born. He shelled out nearly £50,000 for the car. The 1969 Jaguar E-Type has a 4.2-liter straight six engine which provides up to 265 horsepower and it can reach the speed of 60 miles per hour in only 6 seconds!
