These Are The Top 5 Cars That All Celebrities Seem To Drive
27 April 2016 - Carbuzz
We have done a few lists of celebrities that drive the coolest cars. When we do these lists, we try to avoid celebrities that have "typical" celebrity cars. In case you don't know what we mean by typical, we will explain.
Basically, although celebrities have plenty of money and access to a range of cars from a range of automakers, they all seem to gravitate to the same couple of models. We decided to take a look at the top 5 cars that celebrities like to flock to. We don't know why these cars get chosen so often, perhaps famous people know something we don't?
The first car on our list is the Ferrari 458 Italia. There are many supercars on the market, but this is the one that celebrities love. Famous 458 owners include, Rod Stewart, Kylie Jenner, Justin Bieber, Kim Kardashian, Iggy Azalea, Floyd Mayweather, Lebron James, and even James May! These celebrities, and many more, must be drawn to the stunning looks of the 458 and its inherent usability. The 458 Italia came with a dual-clutch transmission, making it a very practical supercar to drive around every day. When all you want to do is show off in Beverly Hills, you don't want to have a jerky, single-clutch transmission making traffic a nightmare.
This next car is the darling luxury car for famous people. Since its introduction back in 2003, the Bentley Continental has been the clear first choice for celebrities who wanted something luxurious to drive around. The original Continental had its fair share of flaws, but the updated V8 model fixed many of these issues. Famous Bentley Continental owners include Paris Hilton, Tyrese Gibson, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Khloe Kardashian, Cindy Crawford, and many more. The Continental GT is a great looking car that is extremely comfortable and quiet when you want it to be, and fun and exciting when you have the urge. We think that the Bentley badge draws rich people to it, even if it is based on a Volkswagen.
For celebrities who want even more prestige than a "glorified Volkswagen", Rolls-Royce seems to be the popular choice. Robert Herjavec, Simon Cowell, Kanye West, Lady Gaga, and crowd favorite Salomondrin are all Rolls-Royce owners. Rolls-Royces are just about the most comfortable car that money can buy, so this choice seems pretty obvious. They have a long history of being one of the most expensive cars money can buy, so it makes sense that celebrities flock to them. Nowadays, you can even buy a range of four-door and two-door models that can tote your family around or be a personal paparazzi smasher. There may be more expensive cars out there, but a Rolls will always be special.
This next one makes almost no sense to us. Despite being paid handsomely, many celebrities feel the need to punish themselves by driving a Toyota Prius. Leonardo DiCaprio famously drove one, but he is far from the only one. Famous Prius owners include Freddie Prinze Jr., Bradley Cooper, Michelle Rodriguez, Natalie Portman, and Cameron Diaz. All told, Celebrity Car Blog estimates that around 70 or more famous people suffer the misery of driving a Prius. We get that these people want to feel like they are saving the planet, but why not get a Porsche 918 or McLaren P1, or even a Tesla? Some celebs like Rebel Wilson and David Beckham have ditched their Prius after seeing how bad they are. Good riddance!
This last car, or SUV rather, might be the most popular celebrity option of them all. How many celebrities own a Range Rover? Well, it is just too many to count. This SUV's global appeal is unparalleled. The Mercedes G-Wagon might be popular in Los Angeles, but nearly every time you watch a celebrity get into an SUV, it is a Range Rover. This British SUV looks good, and has been built up as the ultimate snob-mobile. When you are behind the wheel of a Range Rover, you actually get the feeling that you are better. Despite numerous luxury SUV offerings, most celebs end up with a Range Rover, for good reason. Do you agree with these celebs? Or do you think there are better alternatives that they don't buy?
