Michael Schumacher has won a number of Formula One World Championships while driving for Ferrari. So it’s only right that this famous car company pays him back, and in a big way. Schumacher has one of the world’s few Ferrari FXX cars, built as a track-only prototype. It uses some of the technology from the famous Ferrari Enzo.
Only thirty-eight people own a Ferrari FXX, and every one of them – except for Schumacher – paid a whopping $2.6 million for the privilege. The FXX can hit 217 MPH and reaches sixty MPH in a lightning-fast 2.8 seconds.
The Classics are Always in Style for Clint Bowyer
While Clint Bowyer doesn't take his 1934 Chevy Sedan when he needs to pop down to the store, it's still one of his favorites to take on the road. “I drive it every chance I get. It's a very fun car to drive.” Old age doesn't mean much to Bowyer, who knows that old cars have a much better style than newer offerings.
We don't know what Bowyer has done to keep this car running smoothly, but if he's a true fan of the old days, the car might just have original (or replacement original) parts.
The Legend of the Simple Man
This one is a sad story. Ayrton Senna was a master of the track, and this Brazilian driver won the Formula One World Championship three times while signed with McLaren. Things were on the way up for Senna, until – tragically – a crash with fellow driver Roland Ratzenberger left him and Ratzenberger dead at the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix.
His favorite car to drive was the 1984 Mercedes Benz 190 E, which is one of the simpler, more basic options Mercedes sold. It did well in Europe, though American sales weren't as high.
For Suarez, it Was Love Bug at First Sight
Driver Daniel Suarez is going to make a couple of appearances on this list, but this first is the oldest, and the car means a great deal to him. Suarez comes from Mexico, and when he made the drive to the U.S. it was in this beautiful car.
It's come close to breaking down several times, but it's never fully quit on him. While working on his NASCAR career, Suarez has kept this Beetle in working order, treating it with love – you never forget your first car, and Suarez still has his around.
Newman has Added Major Upgrades to this Little Vehicle.
It's just a Chevy C10, but Ryan Newman has made it drive like a dream thanks to aftermarket parts like a Turbo 350 transmission. But the point of this car isn't to make it the biggest, meanest machine on the streets.
Newman has said even though it doesn't give you a lot to look at, it has everything he needs: “It's a farm truck. It's not perfect. It's got rust and a gun rack in the back. I call it a beater even though it's not. I like it just the way it is.”
