Klay Thompson has been a rising star in the NBA with the Golden State Warriors. He made it into the NBA draft all the way back in 2011 and has been with the Warriors ever since. He has regularly been a top performer with his recent contribution to the impressive Golden State Warriors 110-105 win over the Charlotte Hornets. As a shooting guard, he has been widely considered to be wielding an adept skillset and has been in much fanfare. His collection of cars as well does not disappoint as he has a Chevrolet Camaro, a Lincoln Continental, a Range Rover Velar, a Mercedes Benz G-Wagon, and a BMW i8 in the garage 


 

5. Chevrolet Camaro 

A legend in its own right, the Camaro has been synonymous with Chevrolet and has had quite a long production cycle and various iterations. The Chevrolet Camaro has a plethora of interesting engine options, easy and precise handling, and a jaw-dropping design.

The base inline-4 engine may seem simple but still has incredibly quick acceleration. All that for a price that wouldn’t break the bank which made it incredibly popular in the first place. It does sacrifice the cargo capacity area and has a questionable visibility curve but it still remains a performer on a budget.

With a tried and tested 2.0L turbo inline-4 engine, the Chevy Camaro is a formidable foe on the road. Coupled with a 6-speed manual transmission, it gets from 0 to 60 in just 5.4 seconds and has a top speed of 130 mph.

4. Lincoln Continental 

The Lincoln Continental has been one of the most recognizable cars Lincoln ever created. This luxurious sedan has stuck to its American roots and has a practical undertone to it that makes its use as a daily driver more appealing.

Banking on its expert craftsmanship and attention to detail, be it comfort, luxury, or safety, the Continental sets itself apart in another ballpark entirely. The interior space is also massive only compounded by the similarly spacious storage compartment. It also has a powerful V6 engine that gives it preppy acceleration and a competitive top speed.

3. Land Rover Range Rover Velar 

The Range Rover Velar has been a stoic entry into the midsize SUV segment by Land Rover. It has seductive exterior styling, it is curvy in just the right ways which aren’t what the regular Range Rovers look like. The Velar also matches the exterior design with the new interior design that breathes fresh air into the lineup.

Land Rover Range Rover Velar 

The use of leather on the seats and the steering wheel makes it premium to the touch and comfortable 14-way power adjustable seats also make it comfortable. The Velar also comes with a tried and tested turbocharged inline-4 engine that gives it relatively quick acceleration.

2. Mercedes Benz G-Wagon (G550)

The Mercedes Benz G-Wagon needs no introduction. It is a capable performer with a passion for off-roading. It has a history of evolving and coming back stronger to compete in the full-size SUV segment and dominating it for quite some time.

It also has a twin-turbo V8 engine that gives it a boatload of power and swift acceleration. The AWD drivetrain also comes in handy for adverse road conditions which this SUV specializes in. The interior on the other hand has no compromise in interior space and luxury with heated leather seats with massage function and Nappa leather upholstery to give it a premium finish.

1. BMW i8 

Coming to the final car in Thompson’s collection, we have the BMW i8. A Plug-In Hybrid that retains the excitement of a traditional gas-powered coupe. The design is the greatest point of contention with BMW’s take on the futuristic design genre being a hot topic in vogue.

The beautifully designed butterfly doors on the other hand have been widely respected and complimented as it gives the car a much higher wow factor. It also uses an unconventional inline-3 engine paired with an electric motor giving it insanely quick acceleration and a high top speed. Practicality is also emphasized as the i8 has an adequate range due to a big battery pack and decent storage space.
