Located on Echo Peak Lane in Las Vegas, this eight-car garage, attached to an $8.75 million dollar property, features hardwood flooring, flat screen televisions, and a chandelier hanging from the ceiling.

Francis Wisniewski’s Garage – Chicago, Illinois

Every vehicle is stored on lifts to save space. The project took over 18 months to finish and cost over $1 million dollars.
The Glass Garage – Mulholland Drive, Los Angeles
This iconic garage houses only one type of vehicle – Ferraris.

Milt’s Steel Horse Ranch – Georgia
Our final choice may take the cake as the biggest and most lavish garage.
