The Rolls-Royce Wraith Black Badge is a gorgeous car, which made its debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. The luxury beast boasts of a twin-turbocharged V12 engine and 624bhp. The Wraith Black Badge can go from 0 to 100 kph in 4.6 seconds. The price of Wraith Black Badge starts from £286,000 and according to Finnish media in 2017, Kimi Raikkonen bought one to his collection.

The veteran Finn raced for the Lotus F1 Team in the 2012 and 2013 season. During his tenure, he bought the Lotus Evora S. The British car debuted at the British Motor Show in 2008, with its more powerful S version introduced two years later.

Ferrari Enzo

Without a doubt, the car named after Ferrari’s founder is arguably one of the greatest Ferraris ever. This stunning scarlet beast was in production between 2002 and 2004. Kimi Raikkonen somehow managed to get his hands on one of the 400 cars produced and added it to his collection.

The car possesses an advanced composite bodywork, a 660bhp V12 engine and can go from 0 to 100 kph in 3.6 seconds and reach a top speed of 355 kph. Apparently, this iconic car was Raikkonen’s first Ferrari.

Fiat 500

After winning the F1 title in 2007, Kimi opted to go low key. He got a specially trimmed Fiat 500 Multijet as a gift, according to Finnish newspaper Turun Sanomat.

The normal version of the Fiat 500 comes with two different diesel engine options. The more powerful one produces 95 hp and its acceleration from 0 to 100 takes 10.7 seconds. Its top speed is reported to be 180 kph.
