Our sponsorship of the 13th Annual Americana Manhasset Concours D’Elegance this past October granted us front-seat insights to the extraordinary synergy that exists between luxury properties and classic car ownership. As detailed in the Concours d’Elegance Classic Car Special Report, today’s auto collectors aren’t just in it for the financial opportunity car ownership provides—it’s a deep love of luxury design and elite engineering that drives their passion.

“Those who were in it just for the money have moved on,” says Dietrich Hatlapa, founder of the London-based Historic Automobile Group International, in The Wealth Report. “The market is now more in the hands of the collectors and specialists, which I think is good news for the real enthusiast.”

For serious luxury car connoisseurs, finding a dream home suitable for their car collection is often a key priority during their search for a new property. From garages featuring museum-quality displays to top-of-the-line workshops, the homes below are tailor made for car collectors.
