Car enthusiast Bata Mataja, founder of Big American Dream Co., has listed his Malibu pad for $12.5 million, or $1,666 a square foot, Curbed reported.

Mataja, whose company does everything from helping automakers customize cars for TV commercials to doing restoration work and custom builds, built a custom gallery at the property to accommodate a rotating selection of cars from his private collection.

The 7,500-square-foot, five-bedroom, four-bathroom home also features a saltwater pool and spa, a private office lot and a 20-car motor court.

The glass and concrete home is perched atop a mountain and was completed in 1998 by Santa Monica-based architect Hagy Belzberg. A separate guest house, which overlooks the main residence, was finished in 2000 by architect George Wittman. It’s unclear how much Mataja paid for the property.
