One of the most famous faces on British TV, Jeremy Clarkson has a net worth of close to $70 million dollars, we look at 10 expensive things he owns.
10. Diddly Squat Farm
Purchased in 2008, Clarkson bought the farm for around £6 million pounds ($8.2 million dollars) and immediately kept working away from the site, with a farm manager running the property.
This all changed in 2019 when the farm manager retired and Clarkson took over the running of the farm full-time.
This turned out to be a bonus as his new series, Clarksons Farm turned out to be one of the most popular series Amazon has ever shown.
The farm includes 40 miles of boundaries that are covered in dry stone walls and a farm shop which sells a range of produce produced on the farm including Honey, Fudge, Milk, Merchandise, Oil, Jams and Chutney.
While Clarkson does have to deal with the day-to-day government regulation and the financial consequences, he hires people to manage this for him.
While we will get to his large six bedroom mansion that is located on the farm later, there is also a small cottage on-site which he has been living in for 4-years.
The farm has 300 acres which are set aside from crop farming but overall, the farm sits on around 1,000 acres of land.
As you can now imagine, the farm is worth considerably more than when Clarkson purchased it, with some estimates close to £30 million pounds.
9. Lamborghini Tractor
One of Jeremy Clarkson’s more recent purchases, he wasted no time in displaying his new Lamborghini R8 Tractor to the world in Clarkson’s Farm.
The tractor cost him a whopping £40,000, which converts to around $55,000 and he also purchased other equipment including a cultivator and seed drill.
The Lamborghini farming side of the business has the name Lamborghini Trattori and all tractors in the range feature VRT transmissions.
Along with the expression, strength and style of the cars, its tractors feature a highly customisable PTO and hydraulic system, spacious high visibility cab and new engines.
Clarksons tractor features a touch-screen display, TDC 6.1 Stage V6 engine up to 230 horsepower, dry disc brakes and LED work lighting.
Other features include a load-sensing pump, reinforced air-conditioning system, DAB digital radio and 10-ton rear lift capacity.
Lamborghini have just released their new 2022 range of tractors that includes ten open-field tractors, nine tractors for vineyards and orchards, three crawlers and one front-loader.
8. Farm Mansion
Originally buying the farm with a mansion sitting on the property, Clarkson decided that this home was simply not big enough for his needs.
He decided in true Jeremy Clarkson style to demolish the building by using explosives to make way for a brand new custom-built home of his own design.
He did however, run into some problems, with several neighbors disliking the new home and calling it out-of-place with the rest of the countryside.
The home, which is grand by even english standards, features 12,173 square feet of living space, six-bedrooms, open balcony from the master suite and five bathrooms.
Constructed on the site of Curdle Hill Farmhouse, a £4million five-bedroom property dating back around a century, Clarkson purchased this part of the estate in 2012.
The property also features a cinema, games room, a yard for horses, and space for five cars which are already part of Clarksons collection.
Its unknown how much the home has cost Clarkson to build, however a property just down the road on a similar scale is on the market for close to £7.25 million pounds.
7. Lotus Elise 111S
Featuring a VVC Rover K-Series engine, the 111S was introduced in early 1999 and features a 0-60 time of around 3.80 seconds.
A two-seat, rear-wheel drive, mid-engined roadster, the Elise 111S has a top speed of 132 mph and a price tag of somewhere in the region of £19,500 pounds.
He reportedly owns this car in yellow and although he does not drive it very often, it was one of the cars he reviewed in Top Gear season one, so it looks like it made quite an impact!
The car also featured a front grille nicknamed the “chip cutter” while its engine has modified head and VVT type technology.
6. Aston Martin Virage
One car that may have been forgotten by most, it clearly has not been by Clarkson and this car features a powerful 5.9 litre AM11 v12 engine.
Originally produced by Aston martin in 2011, this car was introduced at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show.
Acceleration times from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) can be achieved in 4.6 seconds and the car has a top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph).
The car comes in two body-styles, Coupé or Volante and was designed to sit in between two of the company’s flagship models, the DB9 and the DBS.
5. London Flat
While now spending most, if not all of his time on Diddly Squat Farm, Clarkson does still find himself in London from time to time.
Hence his ownership of a Penthouse Flat in the Capitol that is located just a stone’s throw from the Lancaster Road Estate in North Kensington.
Jeremys penthouse features a large entertaining area on-top and it has been revealed that he was hit with a £52,000 insurance premium after the Grenfell fire.
The building also features a sophisticated fire prevention system, lift that can be used in fire and safe-cladding.
It is currently unknown exactly what features are located within the flat, although it is thought to have access to secure entry and security in the lobby.
4. Ferrari F355
Another one of Clarkson’s many cars, his Ferrari F355 retails at today’s prices for between $80,000 and $125,000 depending on what you choose the Berlinetta coupé, GTS or Spider models.
This mid-engined, rear-wheel-drive, 2-passenger, 2-door coupe features a DOHC 40-valve V-8 engine, port fuel injection and 6-speed manual transmission.
With a 0-60mph sprint time of 4.6 seconds and a top speed only just short of 180mph, the F355 is a searingly fast sports car.
Described as Beautiful, fun , fast and with great handling, the car was produced from May 1994 to 1999 and was succeeded by the all-new Ferrari 360.
Depending on which model you chose, these cars had access to racing bucket seats, roll-cage, safety harnesses, engine cut-off switch, manual radiator fan control and upgraded fans and 18″ Speedline magnesium wheels.
One interesting fact is that Ferrari introduced a Limited Edition Fiorano model in 1999 with only 104 units ever produced.
3. Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean
Moving into the world of Clarkson’s watches now and we take a look at his expensive Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean, coming with a price tag in the region of $31,000 dollars.
Passing eight rigorous tests set by METAS, The Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology, the watch has scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass and a blue ceramic dial with Arabic numerals.
Also featured are a blue ceramic unidirectional bezel, diving scale made from OMEGA’s trademark Ceragold on a 43.5mm 18k gold case and an alveol screw-in case back.
The watch has a blue leather strap with rubber lining and an 18k Sedna gold clasp, Master Chronometer calibre 8901 movement and transparent, sapphire crystal, case back.
Its also interesting to note that this model features water resistance up to 600 meters or 1,970 feet, so you can easily go diving or have a casual swim with it.
2 – Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder
One of the earlier cars in Clarkson’s collection, it is also one of the most recognisable Lamborghini’s in the company’s range.
The Gallardo Spyder, which is the convertible variant of the Gallardo was unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show in January 2006.
Designed to be an entirely new model of the car, it features a low-ratio six-speed manual transmission and retractable soft-top.

0-60 performance of the Gallardo has been improved to 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.8 seconds and the car has a top speed of 201 mph.
1 – IWC Pilot Chronograph Top Gun
Costing less than his Omega Seamaster, Clarksons, IWC Pilot Chronograph Top Gun is still an amazing watch and features twisting manoeuvres with supersonic jets like the F/A-18 Hornet.
Confirmed as an independent line in the IWC Pilot family, the watch is manufactured using robust, corrosion-resistant materials, such as ceramic and titanium.
Designed specifically for the unusual needs of the US Navy’s flying crews, it features a 41mm case with a low essentials dial, striking luminescent white hand and numerals and matte black background.
