Unless you’ve been living under a rock with no WiFi for the last few months, you’ll be well aware that Sebastian Vettel will race for the new/rebranded Aston Martin F1 team from the 2021 season onwards.
Perhaps as a result of that, the German is selling off a collection of his supercars that he keeps in Switzerland. Think of it like throwing out an ex-partner’s stuff after a break-up (only with less Adele at full volume, we presume).

PHOTOS Tom Hartley Jr
All are being sold through UK-based dealer Tom Hartley Jnr, and first up is just Seb’s old company car. Nothing of interest here, really…
Clearly the four-time World Champ wasn’t using his 950bhp LaFerrari for the commute that often, though, because his 2016 Rosso Corsa example only has 490km on the clock.
Turns out Vettel also owns/owned an Enzo. The man has very good taste.
His is a 2004 example that was originally delivered to Germany and now has 1,790km on its 6.0-litre V12 engine.
Clearly a big fan of his former employers’ V12s, Vettel is also shifting his stunning F50.
It’s in almost mint condition, and just check out that lightweight interior. Fantastic.
Anyone would think Vettel had been a little bit busy in the past few years? His F12tdf only has 738 miles on the clock.
Great spec, though, isn’t it? Plus, there’s Seb’s own logo embroidered in the headrests.
Ferrari 458 Speciale
This one he might regret. Apparently this 458 Speciale was the first new Ferrari that Seb ever ordered. The last naturally aspirated V8 Ferrari. What a thing.
The paint is a metallic black with gold fleck, and there’s the obligatory Vettel logo on the seats.
Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series
Sebastian hasn’t just been hoarding Ferraris over the past few years. This SL65 Black Series was actually gifted to him after he won the inaugural Abu Dhabi Grand Prix at the wheel of a Red Bull in 2009.
Clearly, Seb quite liked the gift as he kept the bonkers 670bhp Black Series as part of his collection until now, putting 2,820km on it during that time.
Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG
Another Merc. Careful now, that’s how rumours start. This SLS was ordered new by Vettel and delivered in 2010.
Obviously it’s a mega spec, with carbon ceramic brakes, sports suspension, an AMG interior carbonfibre package and a Bang & Olufsen surround sound system.
BMW Z8 Roadster
Well, we didn’t expect that. The only BMW that Seb is selling is this gloriously retro Z8. It’s listed with Tom Hartley Jr for £175,000, having been originally supplied to the US. So come on then, Internet, which of Seb’s supercars are you having?
