Does the newly-elected President of the US carry the same oomph as his predecessor? Here are the Joe Biden cars for you.
All set to take the oath as the 46th President of the United States on the 20 January 2021 Joe Biden is a multi-millionaire with humble dreams. Born as Joseph Robinette Biden Jr., the president-elect commands a net worth of about 10 million USDs (INR 73.98 Cr. approx). High admiration for luxury cars was something Biden has grown up with, all credits to his car dealer father. The Scranton, Pennsylvania (US) born, to be President’s dream car is a Chevrolet Corvette Z06, a renowned sports car.
So let’s take a look at what all cars Joe Biden’s garage hold right now. You will be surprised to know most of the cars in the collection belong to American automobile manufacturers. A pro-swadesi you see!

Joe Biden’s close to the heart car, despite being an aged vehicle, shows no signs of ageing and is capable of attaining a top speed of 180kmph.
