What’s your dream car? If money and availability weren’t issues, what would you choose to drive? ...While we’re at it, why stop at one: how would you fill your dream garage?
For some lucky people, this dream is their reality. Along with all the perks that come with being a huge star, many Hollywood celebrities also have the pick of the crop when it comes to the cars they choose to drive. Let’s give in to envy for a moment, and cast our green eyes on the sweetest rides in Hollywood.
Simon Cowell: Jaguar E-Type Eagle Speedster
Simon Cowell is a known car enthusiast, owning over 20 vehicles in total. His positions as a major record executive and as a judge on hit reality shows American Idol, America's Got Talent and The X Factor have clearly paid quite well, judging by the contents of his garage. Not only does Simon Cowell own this beautiful Jaguar, he’s also the proud owner of a Bugatti Veyron and a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder, amongst many others.
Cowell reportedly bought the Jag after it was featured on the TV show Top Gear. It’s an extremely rare Jaguar E-Type Eagle Speedster; a 1965 Jaguar restored by Sussex-based company Eagle. As Cowell himself tweeted after the purchase, "I think this may be the most beautiful car in the world.”
Britney Spears: Maserati GranTurismo
In 2015, Britney Spears purchased a pure white Maserati GranTurismo. The Italian supercar has an eight-cylinder 4.7-liter V-8 engine and a beautifully sleek body. Since then the singer and actress has also been photographed in a black version of the same car. So, unless she was borrowing it, it seems she now owns two of these USD$200,000 cars.
50 Cent: Rolls Royce Phantom
Many celebrities have been seduced by the classic style of a Rolls Royce, including the likes of Missy Elliott, Beyonce, Queen Latifah, Shaqille O’Neal and Justin Bieber. Rapper and actor 50 Cent takes his own approach; for starters he seems to never be chauffeured and prefers to drive his Rolls himself. Not only that, but his Phantom has a custom paint job, giving it a rainbow ‘oil slick’ sheen when the light hits it in just the right way.
Jerry Seinfeld: All The Porsches
There are two comedians in Hollywood with a friendly car collection rivalry: Jerry Seinfeld and Jay Leno. Anyone watching Seinfeld's Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee will see how lovingly he drives and talks about the cars on the show. Although many of the cars are loaned specifically for filming, Seinfeld does have an impressive car collection of his own, reportedly over 150 vehicles.
Jay Leno, however, has a significantly larger collection: 169 cars and 117 motorcycles, with an estimated collective value of somewhere between $50 million and $150 million. With over 80 Porsches, though, Seinfeld does come first in brand loyalty. Seinfeld has described the Porsche as “the essence of sports-car perfection.”
