George has recently renewed his contract with the Los Angeles Clippers in 2020, which fetches him an annual salary of $34.2 million. Sponsored by Nike, Gatorade, AT&T, YouTube, and 2K Sports, George lives a lavish life, and part of it is his exquisite garage loaded with some automobile marvels.
The cars owned by George are not abundant. Instead, he hosts a limited number of machines in his garage, all of which are extremely dear to him. Here’s a glimpse at Paul George’s car collection.
Ferrari 458 Spider
Owning a Ferrari is a dream, and with a net worth of a hundred million dollars, Paul deserves one. He flattered himself with a Ferrari 458 Spider with a massive price of $300,000. The Ferrari 458 Spider is a mid-engined sports car version made by the Italian sports car company Ferrari. It was first formally unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, and it replaced the Ferrari F430. The Ferrari 458 Spider is a folding-hardtop convertible variant of the 458 Italia coupe. Unlike many others, George liked his Ferrari white instead of red.
The external style and characteristics of the Ferrari 458 Spider automobile are engineered for aerodynamic efficiency, creating a downforce of 309 lbs at 124 mph. This is made feasible by a robust and lightweight aluminum chassis that uses sophisticated alloys and manufacturing and bonding processes inspired by aviation. The front grille is equipped with flexible winglets that drop at high speeds to minimize drag. The aluminum retractable hardtop on this convertible version of the 458 Italia weighs only 55 lbs and opens in 14 seconds. To fit the retractable roof system, the engine cover has been modified.
The interior of the Ferrari 458 Spider was designed in consultation with former Ferrari Formula 1 driver Michael Schumacher. The visible effect of which is the new steering wheel that integrates numerous functions typically found on the dashboard, such as turning signals or high beams similar to that of a racing vehicle.
The Ferrari 458 Spider is powered by a 4.5-liter V8 engine from the ‘Ferrari/Maserati’ F136 family, producing 562 horsepower at 9,000 rpm and 398 lb-ft of torque at 6,000 rpm. Direct fuel injection is used in this engine, which is a first for Ferrari mid-engine configurations in road vehicles. A dual-clutch 7-speed GETRAG transmission controls the engine power.
After the dazzling Italian prancing horses, the following gem of Paul George’s garage is the British hallmark of endurance, the Land Rover’s Range Rover. He gifted the white SUV to his fiance on the occasion of Mothers Day.
The Range Rover is a sophisticated and dependable SUV with an elegant design language and royal appearance. The car’s silhouette has a unique profile that is softly tapered and curved, with near-flush glass and Gloss Black pillars highlighting the roof’s streamlined and beautiful design. On the front, the Range Rover sports the iconic front grille with a contemporary design that extends to the front bumper and bonnet. The most amazing exterior feature is the Pixel-Laser LED headlights that, as per the company’s claims, can brighten up the road 500 meters ahead.
Two 10-inch touch displays are included on the Range Rover’s dashboard. The upper display operates the radio and navigation features and the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto applications. In contrast, the bottom display and two dials regulate the air conditioning, seating, and drive mode settings.
The Range Rover is available with engine options, from petrol, diesel, to electric. The standard engine is a 355-horsepower turbocharged six-cylinder engine with an eight-speed automatic transmission that drives all four wheels to 60 MPH in 6.6 seconds. A modified version of this engine, namely the P400, produces 395 horsepower and can do a 60 MPH run in 5.9 seconds. The following options are the P525 and P565 V8 engines that produce 518 and 557 horsepower, respectively. Then comes the P400e four-cylinder plug-in hybrid engine that produces 398 horsepower and can sprint the car from 0 to 60 MPH in 6.4 seconds.
Jeep Wrangler Rubicon
Paul George is a proud owner of the Jeep Wrangler. The design of Wrangler is reminiscent of the original Willys, and it is not only visually Willys. The design includes a removable top and detachable doors. The Wrangler’s iconic seven-slot grille, circular LED headlights, fender-mounted turn indicators and LED DRLs, 18-inch alloy wheels, a spare wheel located on the tailgate, and LED taillights, make it a splendid beast.
The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon’s interiors have an all-black motif, with leather upholstery, a deep steering wheel, and a well-equipped dashboard. Soft-touch leather upholstery with contrasting white stitching is applied to the premium leather upholstery in the 5-seater interior configuration. The Uconnect 4C NAV 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system with navigation, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto is located in the center. Additional features include dual-zone automatic temperature control, passive keyless entry, push-button start, and a rear parking camera, among others.
The 2.0-liter turbo-petrol engine under the hood of the Jeep Wrangler is calibrated to produce 268 HP and 295 lb-ft of torque. This engine is mated to an eight-speed gearbox, and the power is sent to the wheels through an all-wheel-drive system.
Seeing his love for automobiles, the NBA superstar may add many more worthy machines in the years to come. The Ferrari 458 Spider is the latest addition to his collection. The way George is gaining popularity followed by contracts from large brands, he is undoubtedly on the path to becoming one of the greatest players of all time.
The UFC fighters on this list have garages packed with cool rides, but they all have that one car that overshadows all others.
