What's inside Lewis Hamilton's mean-machine garage?

' '

It's hardly surprising that Lewis Hamilton's blend of on-track success and glitzy off-track style has led the five-time F1 world champion to fill his personal garage with a number of exotic cars over the years. It's a rather modest-sized collection of wheels, but one where quality and flashiness largely outweigh quantity. F1i takes a look at Ham's various set of wheels.

Ford Mustang Shelby GT500

For all his finesse and delicacy as an F1 driver, Lewis Hamilton can also show some serious muscle when driving on the streets, and it sometimes comes in the form of a Mustang Shelby GT500. He once hashtagged the thoroughbred #Eleonor, referring to the classic 1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, but this one is actually a replica built by Classic Recreations, using authentic Shelby parts complimented with a few modern components. Draped out in Hamilton's favourite shade of 'candy red' and powered by a 5.0.-liter V8 Coyote, it's probably as close as one could get to owning an original 'Eleonor' muscle car.
