Kendall Jenner, the world's highest-paid supermodel who became famous thanks to the reality show "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," harbors a secret passion for classic cars. The 27-year-old American already owns several modern custom-built cars, including the Ferrari SF90 in which she cruises the streets of Beverly Hills. She has added a number of cars to her garage over the years that she drives regularly and that often appear on her Instagram profile with 294 million followers.

Initially, Kendall Jenner focused mainly on collecting flagship cars such as the purple 1960 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz or the red 1965 Ford Mustang. A few years ago she even starred in an episode of Jay Leno's Garage with her 1956 Chevrolet Corvette. All of them are convertibles to fully enjoy the warm climate of California and thereby perfectly representing the stereotype of the Hollywood star who wants to live the American dream to the fullest.

In an interview with CNN, Kendall Jenner recounts that her love for motorsports began at a young age by riding dirt bikes and ATVs before she became hooked on cars. Driving through the streets of Los Angeles is one of her favorite activities and she was recently seen behind the wheel of one of the latest additions to her collection, a Porsche 993.

For the world of collectibles and classic cars in general, the fact that an influential personality like Kendall Jenner shares her passion with her millions of followers is excellent news to raise interest among young people. As a matter of fact, it frequently occurs that articles or surveys point out that the automobile is less and less appealing to the younger generation. Wrongfully so: It might be the case for dull cars that are all the same, but the special ones, which are perhaps a little older, are still viewed as exciting toys. Another disproof to this assumption is found in the enthusiastic crowd of all ages registered that registered last weekend for the Formula 1 Grand Prix in Miami. Also Kendall Jenner was in Miami and she was able to have a new, exciting experience: Driving around the track in an AMG GT-R piloted by a very special "chauffeur" - Lewis Hamilton.
