Jeff Bezos owns five of the most beautiful cars of all time

1. Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio
The cheapest car in Jeff Bezos' garage is the Ferrari Pininfarina Sergio – a special edition in honor of car designer Sergio Pininfarina, who died in 2012. Limited to six copies and valued at 2.5 million euros, the The car hides under the hood a 4.5-liter V8 engine that develops 605 hp. In just three seconds, the engine can accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h – a measure very few sports cars can match. The interior features sport seats with leather and Alcantara trim, along with decorative carbon fiber inserts and a flattened sport steering wheel.
2. Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita
The fastest car in the fleet is the Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita – it accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.9 seconds and reaches a top speed of 410 km / h. Its value of four million euros is partly due to the body, which is made of a special carbon fabric by Koenigsegg. Koenigsegg was the first automaker to develop a unique solution that turns black fibers into brilliant white and silver. As soon as sunlight hits the Trevita, it looks like millions of tiny white diamonds have been sunk into the visible carbon fiber body. The Swedish company initially intended to produce a limited edition of three units. However, the white carbon fiber used for the Trevita made the production of the car extremely difficult and extremely long. So they decided to make it even more exclusive and limit the number of Trevitas to just two. One of them is in Jeff Bezos' garage.
3. Lamborghini Veneno
Valued at 4.2 million euros, the Lamborghini Veneno is the most expensive vehicle the Bezos own and brings the aerodynamic efficiency of a racing car to the streets: optimum stability in tight corners and performance. just like on the racetrack – all in a car designed for the streets.
