We take a look at 10 expensive things owned by millionaire Sebastian Vettel and his lifestyle.
10. Switzerland Home
This large Sebastian Vettel medieval-style farmhouse is located somewhere in Switzerland and features a number of bedrooms and bathrooms that are currently unknown in number.
To be honest we have found out very little information about the home, other than the fact it is painted in a Tudor style white and red and is surrounded by large trees and has a large driveway.
The property appears to have a separate guest house out the back and there is a large RV parked in the back yard… another one of Vettel’s purchases perhaps?
No information is currently available on the cost of the home but if you have any information on the price or other information about the property then please let us know.
9. Ferrari F430
For someone that races in Formula 1 for team Ferrari, expect to see at least a few of these cars on our list and we kick off the Sebastian Vettel car collection.
The F430 was produced from 2004 to 2009 and is a successor to the Ferrari 360 with the car being unveiled at the 2004 Paris Motor Show.
Notable features include the first application of Ferrari’s Manettino steering wheel-mounted control knob where drivers can select from five different settings which modify features on the vehicle.
The Ferrari F430 was available with exclusive Goodyear Eagle F1 GSD3 EMT tires, which have a V-shaped tread design, run-flat capability, and OneTRED technology.
The car has a 4.3-liter engine, a top speed in excess of 196 mph (315 km/h) and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 3.6 seconds, 0.6 seconds quicker than the old model.
8. Red Bull Helicopter “Little Bull”
Nicknamed “Little Bull,” this helicopter is used by Sebastian Vettel often and is mainly used for transportation in and out of events.
The helicopter is emblazoned in the colors of Red Bull Racing; however, it is currently unclear how much he paid for it or whether he still owns it.
7. Ferrari California T
Another car and yes it’s another Ferrari, specifically the $231,000 dollar Ferrari California T with its twin-turbo 3.9 liter V8 engine that produces 552 bhp.
The car was the first Ferrari to feature a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, the first hardtop convertible with a folding metal roof and the first with direct petrol injection.
Sebastian Vettel California T debuted in 2014 for the 2015 model year, can accelerate from 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) in 3.6 seconds, and attains a top speed of 315 km/h (196 mph).
It is also the first Ferrari road car to debut the new Apple CarPlay functionality into its built-in infotainment system.
The California T was produced in several special editions and could also be customized to suit individual customers through the tailor-made programme.
6. Art Collection
Recently, Sebastian Vettel purchased an original 32-piece art collection celebrating all 32 Formula One world champions since the inception of the F1 drivers’ title in 1950.
Produced by international artist Mark Dickens, in collaboration with renowned F1 photographer Keith Sutton, each celebrates the life and legacy of its subject.
Vettel is, of course, among the subjects of the collection and its thought the sale proceeds went to London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital.
As an integral part of each painting, drivers and leading motor-sport personalities were asked to express in their own words what made their chosen World Champion special.
5. Mercedes SL65 AMG Night Edition
We are not quite done with Ferrari just yet; however, changing up the mood we take a look at the Sebastian Vettel $145,000 dollar Mercedes SL65 AMG.
The night edition of this car features the AMG Speedshift Plus five-speed automatic transmission and has a 6.0 liter V12 BiTurbo.
The car has a limited top speed of about 200 mph-(322 km/h) and can go from 0-62 mph-(0–100 km/h) in 3.8 seconds.

4. Casio Red Bull Racing Watch
Launched in partnership with Vettel himself, this limited edition Casio Red Bull Racing Watch is at the forefront of all pioneering technology.
The watch has a stainless steel case, date display, black dial, alarm, chronograph, and screw down case back with a special Red Bull engraving.
The watch is shock resistant, water resistant, and comes with a presentation box and card showing authenticity and association with Red Bull Racing.
3. Infiniti FX – Vettel Edition
Being sponsored by Infiniti FX has its benefits, so much so in fact that a Sebastian Vettel edition of the Infiniti FX SUV has been created.
This car costs an eye-grabbing £100, 800 pounds and comes with an impressive top speed of 186 mph (300 kph).
The two-piece rear spoiler is not standard and costs £4800 extra with other changes including new wheels and the removal of the roof rails.
It features a 414 bhp V8 engine that can propel the car from 0-60 mph in 5.6 seconds with the car also sounding much quieter than the standard Infiniti FX.
2. Ferrari F40
We’re back to Ferrari and no it’s still not the last of the cars in the list with the F40 costing between $700,000 and $900,000.
Some buyers were reported to have paid as much as US $3.6 million as only a total of 1,311 F40s were manufactured with 213 units destined for the United States.
The body of the F40 was an entirely new design, featuring panels made of Kevlar, carbon fiber, and aluminum for strength and low weight.
The cars did have moderate air conditioning but had no sound system, door handles, glove box, leather trim, carpets, or door panels.
0–60 mph (97 km/h) could be achieved in 4.2 seconds and the car has a Top speed of 197 mph (317 km/h).
1. BMW X3
With a price tag of roughly £37,000, the BMW X3 features a 0 – 60 mph time of 5.1 – 10.0 seconds.
The car has a 2- or 3-liter diesel engine and its top speed of between 132.4 to 155.3 mph means its owner can avoid that pesky paparazzi.
Vettel’s X3 has an 8-speed automatic transmission and inside you will find gesture control technology LED exterior and interior lighting, with the newest BMW iDrive 6.0 system that features a 12.5-inch widescreen touch-screen monitor for navigation systems.
