Max Verstappen owns his own private jet

Being Formula 1’s top-earning driver, Max Verstappen leads a life of extraordinary luxury.
Max Verstappen lives a life of luxury and extravagance away from the circuit, spending his time enjoying the perks of Monaco residency and making the most of his awe-inspiring car collection.

The Dutch driver has risen to the top of F1 in recent years, following up his controversial maiden World Championship with a dominant second in 2022, and all signs suggest that the 25-year-old is heading for a third consecutive triumph in 2023 as he looks to consolidate a 125-point lead at the top of the standings.

Max Verstappen’s extravagant lifestyle is largely funded by his monster salary. After signing a new long-term deal that will keep him at Red Bull until the end of the 2028 season, the Dutch driver now brings in an eye-watering annual salary of £46.9 million ($60m), according to Forbes.

A large chunk of his income looks to have been invested into his car collection, which is made up of 11 different vehicles. While he has plenty of impressive machinery under his ownership, the crown jewel in Verstappen’s garage is the Aston Martin Valkyrie.

The project was key to keeping legendary engineer Adrian Newey with the team as the Red Bull designer worked with Aston Martin to turn the hypercar into a reality. Only 150 units of the Valkyrie were ever produced with the first going on sale at the end of 2021 for a price of £2.7 million ($3.5m), and Verstappen has one in his collection.

Verstappen actually found himself in hot water in August 2023 when he appeared to be speeding behind the wheel of the Valkyrie in a video posted by family friend Mark Cox during the summer break.

Alongside the Valkyrie in his collection sits three other Aston Martin-produced cars. The Dutchman owns the road-legal edition of the DB11, as seen in the James Bond movie ‘Spectre’ as well as a DBS Superleggera and 2018 Vantage.

Despite being a Red Bull driver, Verstappen also has two Ferraris and a Mercedes in his collection with the three cars totalling over £1.7 million in value. He also owns a Porsche 911 GT3 RS, as well as two Renaults, one of which is a Clio that came as a gift from his parents.

His latest known addition to the collection is his Honda NSX Type X. The 25-year-old was gifted the car as a reward for winning the 2022 World Championship off the back of Red Bull’s partnership with the Japanese manufacturer.

Even more valuable than his entire car collection – which is thought to be worth in excess of £5m – is Verstappen’s personal private jet, which he uses to ferry himself and his entourage to and from race weekends. The £12m beauty once belonged to British businessman Richard Branson but has since been decked out in a dark grey livery with the Dutchman’s personal branding.
