Celebrities and cars – you can’t have one without the other. But, not all celebs are rolling round in Lamborghinis and G Wagons – some of them are cruising the Hollywood hills in some pretty weird cars…
We’ve put on our paparazzi hats and put together a list of some of the best – and most bizarre – cars driven by celebs.
Click above to watch our top 10 video.
Beyonce – 1959 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud Series II Drophead
Beyonce is a style icon, so it makes sense that she drives something a bit classier than a chrome-wrapped Lamborghini. And, cars don’t get much classier than a $1 million Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud Drophead. Her 1959 Rolls was actually a birthday present from husband Jay-Z. That sure beats a Moonpig card and some flowers from the petrol station!
Chris Pratt – 1965 VW Beetle
Chris Pratt can’t be short on cash. After all, he starred in loads of Marvel superhero movies and the Jurassic park remakes. Despite that, he drives a 1965 VW Beetle that he won in a game of blackjack and had restored over a period of 12 years. He must have taken the bus to the studio back then or something…
Cardi B – Bentley Bentayga
Cardi B is one of the most successful female rappers of the last decade, so it’s no surprise that she has some pretty flashy cars. For starters, she has a Bentley Bentayga, a Lamborghini Urus and a Mercedes-Maybach S650. What’s weird is that she doesn’t actually have a driver’s licence…
That’s fine if she just wants to get chauffeured around in her Maybach, but why then does she also have a Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster? That doesn’t make any sense…
Clint Eastwood – Fiat 500e
There are plenty of Hollywood hardmen, but Clint Eastwood is one of the most bad-ass actors ever. So what car do you reckon this legend of the silver screen drives? Probably something big and American with a HUGE V8, right?
He actually cruises around in a Fiat 500. And, it’s not an Abarth model – it’s the electric version! It’s like Dirty Harry has put down the .44 Magnum and picked up a blow-dryer.
Cristiano Ronaldo – Bugatti Centodieci
Cristiano Ronaldo isn’t just one of the most famous footballers ever, he’s also a bit of a baller when it comes to cars. He has a Rolls Royce Cullinan, a McLaren Senna and a Bugatti Chiron worth more than £3.5 million in total.
But, his latest car makes these look like a Ford Fiesta. Reportedly, he’s just ordered the new Bugatti Centodieci. This is a special-edition version of the already very special Chiron with 1600hp and special bodywork designed to look like the classic EB110. And, it costs £7.3 million, which is probably about as much as Ronaldo earns in a week…
Justin Beiber – Lamborghini Urus
Justin Beiber is like Marmite – you either love him or you hate him. And, the same goes for his taste in cars. He drives a Lamborghini Urus, which he had wrapped in hot pink vinyl. That’s like putting Arnie in a tutu. Even he must have thought this was a bit over-the-top, though, because he’s had it re-wrapped in a much more subtle beige instead.
The Pope – Renault 4
You don’t need your own car when you’re the Pope, do you? After all, you’ve got your own personal popemobile – even if it does look a bit like a fish tank on wheels… Perhaps that’s why Pope Francis has a couple of his own cars, too. First up is a Lamborghini Huracan. It was given to him by Lamborghini in 2018 but he auctioned it off for charity, where it raised £630,000.
His other car is really odd – it’s a 1984 Renault 4. It was given to him back in 2013 when he first became pope. He supposedly used it as his daily driver in and around the Vatican but now it’s on display in the Vatican Museum.
Elon Musk – Lotus Esprit Submarine
Elon Musk is like a real-life Bond character, so it’s no surprise that he owns a real-life Bond car (as well as a whole load of Teslas). It’s not some flashy Aston Martin with an ejector seat, though – it’s the Lotus Esprit Submarine from ‘The Spy Who Loved Me’. Elon bought it at auction in 2013 where it cost him a whopping £616,000.
Apparently, he plans to turn it into a real working electric submarine using leftover Tesla bits. Although, Elon does like to launch his own cars into space. So who knows what might happen to it!
Gordon Ramsay – Ferrari Monza SP2
Gordon Ramsey loves Ferraris almost as much as he loves the F word. He’s had two LaFerraris – a coupe and an Aperta – and he’s just added the ultra-rare Ferrari Monza SP2 to his collection.
This £1.6 million sportscar is basically a stripped-out two-seater with a V12 engine from the 812 Superfast. Problem is, the SP2 doesn’t come with a roof. So what’s Gordon going to do when he’s cruising around the Cotswolds and it starts raining?
Prince Charles – Aston Martin DB6 Volante
The Royal family is as British as fish and chips, bad teeth and a disorganised response to a global pandemic. So, it makes total sense that Price Charles likes to cruise around in a classic British sports car – in his case, it’s an Aston Martin DB6 Volante.
Unlike most Aston Martin owners, Charlie’s had his 4.0-litre straight-six tuned to run on bio-fuel. The best bit is that the Prince’s bio-fuel is made from left-over English wine. Talk about ‘driving under the influence’!
Jeremy Clarkson – Lamborghini tractor
Jeremy Clarkson is probably the most famous petrolhead in the world, but he actually owns a tractor. It’s not just any old tractor – it’s a Lamborghini tractor. Yep, Lamborghini actually makes tractors, and they’ve been doing it since 1948.
But Jezza doesn’t drive this thing to the shops. He also owns an old Alfa Romeo GTV6 – the same one he bought on the Grand Tour for £10,000. Good thing he also has a Volvo XC90 for when that old Alfa breaks down…
Lady Gaga – Ford F150 SVT Lightning
Lady Gaga is no stranger to doing outrageous things, but when it comes to cars she’s actually a bit ordinary. She cruises about in a Ford F150 pickup truck – that’s the most popular vehicle sold in the whole world.
Well, if we’re being specific, her truck is a 1993 ‘SVT Lightning’ version. It sounds exciting and has a 5.8-litre V8, but it only makes 240hp. Still, at least there’s plenty of space in the back for a few cuts of beef, sorry outfits…
Michael Fassbender – Ferrari F12 tdf
The Ferrari F12 tdf is a beast of a car. It has a 780hp V12 and its tricky rear-wheel steering makes it pretty twitchy to drive. So, it’s not the sort of thing you should buy if you haven’t owned a car in 20 years…
Well, nobody told Michael Fassbender about this, because that’s exactly what he did. Good thing he’s pretty handy behind the wheel, then. He’s actually competing in the 2020 European Le Mans Series.
Drake – Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Landaulet
Have you heard the saying ‘if you have to ask how much it costs, you can’t afford it’? Well, that perfectly sums up Drake’s Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Landaulet. It’s basically a longer, taller Mercedes G-Class pickup truck with a massive 621hp V12 and a soft top. Who said you can’t have your cake and eat it?
Mercedes never announced an official price tag – so you know it had to cost an absolute bomb. Although, that doesn’t really matter if you’re Drake and you’re worth 150 million dollars…
Kendall Jenner – Ford Mustang Convertible.
It’s easy to be overshadowed in a celebrity family – especially when Kim Kardashian is your half-sister. So how does Kendall Jenner stand out? Well, she decided to buy a load of pretty unusual cars.
She has a 1965 Ford Mustang, a 1960 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz and a 1956 Chevrolet Corvette. All of these are convertibles – you know, so the paparazzi can see exactly who’s driving.
