Patrick Bet-David is a 43-year-old American business tycoon of Iranian origin. Born in Iran, both Patrick and his father moved to the US back in 1990. Afterward, Patrick finished high school here and served in the 101st Airborne infantry of the US Army as well. After his military service, he decided to become an entrepreneur and founded his marketing and distribution brand, PHP. With more than a decade of successful running, Patrick accumulated a personal net worth of $150 million, and he inspires others to become an entrepreneur through his interviews and speeches as well. Being an affluent and wealthy person, Patrick has a tasteful and enviable list of cars in his garage that includes the super-exotic Ferrari SF90 Stradale. 


5. BMW i8

Unlike most of us, the BMW i8 is the “most affordable” car in Patrick’s garage which is also the most fuel-efficient as well. Launched in 2014, the i8 was marketed as a hybrid-electric sports car, and by 2020, it became the top-selling electric sportscar in the world as well.

BMW i8

The most popular colors of the car are white and electric blue, with Patrick’s i8 getting the latter. While the i8 delivered a neat balance of performance and fuel economy, almost all of its rivals in the class were gasoline-only and had much less fuel economy numbers. At the time of purchase, the car is expected to have cost the businessman around $148,495.

Top Speed155 mph

The BMW i8 gets a compact 1.5-liter turbocharged I-3 motor alongside an electric motor. The powertrain gets a 6-speed shiftable automatic transmission which provides quick shifts as well. Together with the electric motor, the motor delivers quite the punch at 357 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque. On a straight line, the coupe sprints to 60 mph from a standstill within 4.5 seconds flat and has an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph. However, almost every rival it faces in its class has way better performance.

4. Ferrari 458 Italia

The Ferrari 458 Italia has been quite popular since its launch. Succeeding the iconic F430, the 458 Italia found its way into several garages across the globe, with one of them ending up inside Patrick’s garage.

The car is placed as a sports car but has the stance and appeal of a supercar along with offering a scintillating performance as well. At the time of purchase, the businessman is expected to have shelled out around $245,000.

Powering the mid-engine sports car is a 4.5-liter V8 that is mated to a 7-speed automated transmission. The motor is good for a healthy 562 hp and 398 lb-ft of torque which allows the car to accelerate to 60 mph from a standstill within 3.4 seconds. The top speed is rated at 202 mph.

3. Lamborghini Aventador

Being one of the last of its kind, the Lamborghini Aventador is revered by enthusiasts across the globe, especially due to its raw power from the naturally aspirated V12 and that fighter-jet-like styling.

Lamborghini Aventador

With over 700 horses on tap, the supercar focuses primarily on performance and handling while it is favored by plenty of celebrities too. Patrick also added the Aventador in his garage by shelling out around $354,400.

Top Speed217 mph

The Aventador gets a colossal 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 motor under its rear hood and gets a 7-speed automated manual gearbox. While one might have a love-hate affair with AMTs in regular cars, the Aventador’s AMT is phenomenal and delivers blisteringly-quick shifts, especially while using the paddle shifters. On a straight line, the car hits 60 mph within 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of 217 mph. 


2. Rolls-Royce Dawn

The Rolls Royce Dawn replaced the popular Phantom Drophead Coupe that gave the taste of the brand’s supreme luxury in a two-door version. Being a two-door grand tourer, the Dawn doesn’t lack any feature of the level of luxuries inside but the rear passengers do get slightly less legroom due to the shortened wheelbase.

Moreover, the Dawn is a convertible car too, allowing the owner to have some open-air driving sessions while the car wafts along like a carpet. Patrick owns one and shelled out $428,050 at the time of purchase.

Powertrain6.6L Twin-Turbo V12
Horsepower563 hp

Transmission8-speed automatic
0-60 MPH4.3 seconds
Top Speed155 mph

The Dawn is powered by Rolls Royce’s staple 6.6-liter twin-turbo V12 that drinks gas like anything. However, the performance and refinement it delivers are only made possible by the engineers who developed the motor. Mated to a standard 8-speed automatic transmission, the Dawn puts out a beefy 563 hp and 605 lb-ft of torque. The numbers are enough to propel this heavy luxury GT to 60 mph from a standstill within 4.3 seconds while the top speed is limited to 155 mph.

1. Ferrari SF90 Stradale

The Ferrari SF90 Stradale is a hybrid “sports car”. Yes, you read that right, the legendary Italian car maker made a hybrid sports car that drives and behaves like a supercar.

With face-melting acceleration when required, the SF90 Stradale can also turn into a fuel-saving car with an electric-only mode while the electric motor gives the extra oomph while accelerating hard. It is by far the most expensive car in Patrick’s garage and costs an eye-watering $1,200,000.

The Ferrari SF90 Stradale is powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 that gets a hybrid system assisting as well. Together, the powertrain delivers an incredible 980 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. The 2.0-second 0-60 mph acceleration time puts it side by side with a few well-known hypercars out there as well. The top speed is rated at 211 mph only.
