What does the hunky, virile hero or the glamorous, curvy heroine of your favorite movie drive? They don’t have average incomes, and some don’t tool around in average cars. Here’s a partial list of celebrities and their cars.
Brosnan starred as James Bond in the early 2000’s. That’s important because, like Bond, Brosnan owns an Aston Martin Vanquish; a V12, 565 horsepower status symbol that looks as good as any of the women James Bond attracted. These cars are so rare and so desired, so it would only make sense for the man who played Bond to own it.
The British television program ‘Top Gear’ features a segment in which ordinary people drive a car around a race track. The times are posted on a large board. Cowell captured the top spot. He drives a Bugatti Veyron, the fastest production car currently produced with a top speed of 267 mph. The Veyron uses a W16 engine with four turbochargers to deliver 1,001 horsepower. This incredible power delivers a zero to 60 time of 2.46 seconds. The Veyron stops with the help of carbon fiber, silicon carbide brakes that can drag the car backwards at the equivalent of 1.3 g’s.
This power couple drives a BMW Hydrogen 7. As the name implies, this BMW uses hydrogen gas as well as gasoline. BMW only made a hundred of the Hydrogen 7 cars and offered them to well-known people. Brangelina was one of them. Quite an environmentally correct statement.
Of course Justin Bieber has a nice car. It’s hard to compete with this amazing birthday gift he got from Ellen Degeneres. The car is called a Fisker Karma, and it’s worth more than one hundred grand. Bieber covered the car in pure chrome, so it’s hard to miss this beast roaming around town. A set of Cooper tires would go perfectly on Bieber’s fancy, shiny ride.
The star of ‘Seinfeld’ doesn’t own a Porsche. He owns a fleet of Porsches big enough that he once used a hanger at the Santa Monica airport to store them all. His 47 car collection includes several rare cars such as the 1955 550 Spyder and a silver Porsche 959 worth $700,000.
Mr. Jackson drives around Los Angeles in a Maybach 57 S, a car that has been described as ‘ultra-luxurious’ in car magazines. The Maybach begins life as a Mercedes Benz. Maybach installs a power rear sun-shade, interior air filter, front and rear seat massage, heated cup holders and night vision.
