Tim Burton (born: September 17), better known online as Shmee150, is a British Youtuber who travels the world to seek out the greatest and most exclusive automotive content possible. He captures the content using his signature video selfie technique, and is also notable for saying "hi guys I'm Shmee" and "Cheers" quite a lot, in the start and end of his videos, respectively. The cars currently in his garage are his MSO Orion purple McLaren 675LT Spider, Cobalt Blue Aston Martin Vantage GT8, Black Mercedes AMG GTR,Red edition Focus RS and Orange Heratige Edition Focus RS. The cars Tim has confirmed he has on order are the Ford GT, McLaren Senna and TVR Griffith. He recently sold his Porsche 911 GT3.
The channel started its journey in January 2010, when Tim by chance stumbled into two brand new cars, being displayed at a top gear event, that, at the time, one would not expect to see on the road: a Ferrari 458 Italia and Lamborghini Murciélago LP670-4 Superveloce. Little did Tim know that the short film of those two cars would eventually develop into the venture it has now become.
The YouTube channel has since grown and grown, now with over 1.5 million subscribers and covers exclusive events around the world and Shmee150 films some of the most incredible luxury and performance cars in existence. Shmee150 has also expanded his network to include a personal blog and a few, once in a while, vlogs where he shares the Behind the Scenes around his latest content, as well as including discussions from around the web, allowing his fans to follow his adventures through the exclusive automotive world, and how he manages his cars and content.
Before YouTube Tim ran a very successful Eletronics store in London which he sold to move to New Zealand to become a Ski Instructor. Upon his return to the UK he worked in an investment consultancy in London.
An important part of Shmee150 YouTube Content is his Roadtrips across Europe, to different car-shows, events and locations, and his in depth reviews of newly released cars.
In recent years he has focused the channel on the ownership journey of his car collection.
Shmee has also hosted the live show at Autosport International for the past 3 years, and has also participated in the famous "Gumball 3000" cross-country rally.
