MotoGP Champion Jorge Lorenzo’s Car Collection In 2024 Is All About Performance
Loading...

Jorge Lorenzo is a retired professional motorcycle racer considered one of the greatest of his generation. The five-time World Champion (two 250CC and 3 MotoGP) has been associated with multiple brands for both cars and motorcycles. He has raced more than 200 times and achieved 114 podiums with 47 wins. 

It is easy to assume that Jorge has a special bond with cars and bikes, however, that doesn’t mean he is one of the biggest collectors. Jorge Lorenzo’s car collection includes a fair number of two-wheelers and some very exclusive four-wheelers. While a hint of luxury is reflected in his garage, what is far more apparent is his love for performance vehicles.


Lamborghini Urus S

Let’s start with the latest buy and the only SUV from the racer’s garage. Jorge Lorenzo bought a Lamborghini Urus S in 2023 through Lamborghini's "La Prima" program. It allows the buyer to take a tour around the Lamborghini factory while collecting the vehicle.

Jorge had a great time during that tour and he clicked a few photos for his personal collection as well. He even came across the then yet-to-be-launched Lamborghini Revuelto as well. The Urus boasts a factory wrap of Nero Helene on the exterior and a Nero Ade interior with Giallo Taurus highlights inside the cabin. Jorge even got a small-scale Urus model as a souvenir during the purchase. 

Lamborghini Aventador SVJ 63 Roadster

The second on the list is also a Lamborghini but this is a much more exclusive version. Jorge Lorenzo got a Lamborghini Aventador SVJ 63 Roadster which came out in 2019 and all 63 units were immediately sold out. The limited edition Aventador SVJ houses the same 6.5L naturally aspirated V12 engine and its 0-60 of 2.6 seconds is intact.

However, the exterior and interior come in gray with orange highlights and the 63 badges are visible on the hood and on the sides. The Leirion forged wheels and the large rear wing add the extra oomph factor. The MotoGP world champion was lucky to get his hands on this beauty and shared the unveiling on his social media handle.

Pagani Huyara Roadster

The Aventador is not the only roadster in Jorge’s possession. He is also a proud owner of a hypercar from Pagani Automobili. Lorenzo booked the Pagani Huyara Roadster during the pandemic and he was supposed to take delivery in Switzerland within four weeks but it was delayed due to the lockdown.

However, he got the Huyara somewhere in May 2021 and he was seen testing the power of the 6L twin-turbo V12 produced by Mercedes-AMG. We didn’t see him take off probably due to the restrictions outside. However, the glossy black carbon-fiber exterior together with the red-black leather and fiber inside was a breathtaking scene already. 


Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is one of  Jorge’s earliest cars. He bought it in 2011 and keeps it in his mansion in Spain. Lorenzo is especially fond of his white Mercedes SLS and gushes over it very often.

The 622 horsepower from the V8 and the level of luxury are the obvious reasons behind loving the AMG-powered car. But what excites the champion racer is the gullwing doors and he stated he loves how they open like a bat spreading its wings. 

Porsche 911 GT3 RS

Jorge Lorenzo got a Porsche shortly before he started his venture with Ducati. And it's not just any other Porsche but the Porsche 911 GT3 RS from 2016. With a 4L flat-6 engine it pulls out half a thousand horses and can sprint 0-60 in just over 3 seconds.

Lorenzo has the GT3 RS in a shade of orange and often takes it out for a spin. The driving experience is thrilling and he loves the Porsche. That is probably why he went and thanked Poreche Bercelona on X for the awesome ride. 


It’s the level of performance, not the number of wheels

Former MotoGP World Champion Jorge Lorenzo recently shifted from racing with two wheels to doing the same with four. He participated in the Porsche Supercup in 2022 but he is still true to his roots and keeps his loved ones close to his heart. 

Yamaha YZF-R1

The Yamaha YZF-R1 is one of the most powerful motorcycles in Jorge’s collection. It comes with a  1,000 CC engine and an all-black body. The golden rims are a nice highlight against the dark overall. 

Yamaha YZ450F

Lorenzo has not one but a couple of Yamaha YZ450F motorbikes in his garage. These two racing motocross models come with engines half the size of the R1 and produce 52 HP. Jorge has the two 450s in two different colors - one in white and another in white and blue. 

Yamaha TMAX

The Yamaha TMAX is from around the same time as the R1 and it comes in blue. Although this is one of the coolest-looking bikes in his possessions, we have hardly seen him going out riding the TMAX. 

Yamaha WR250F

Lorenzo has another motocross bike and this time it's the Yamaha WR250F. It comes in a similar blue and white as one of his 450F models and cost him just about $8K. And since this one is less powerful, our guess is that it hasn’t felt as much asphalt as the others. 

Winning Machines

Jorge Lorenzo’s luxury mansion also houses two out of three bikes that he won the MotoGP World Championship with. Both the machines are Yamaha YZR-M1 and painted in white and blue. However, the first one from 2010 has Fiat badging alongside Yamaha as he was riding at 211 mph as a part of the Fiat-Yamaha team.
