Successful celebrities tend to have millions to invest in transportation. As such, we often see them investing in comfortable, luxurious options like yachts, helicopter charters, and maybe a couple of private planes. Beyond these glamorous long-distance options though, a lot of celebrities at this level also place a lot of importance on the incredible cars they drive.
Here’s our look at a handful of prominent celebrities known to have enviable cars to their names.
1. Vin Diesel
While the first film in the Fast and the Furious franchise featured Paul Walker as the lead, Vin Diesel has become indistinguishable from the series over time. And while said series has become increasingly absurd (albeit wildly entertaining), it has always showcased incredible cars. So perhaps it’s unsurprising that Diesel owns a collection of cars inspired by the movies that made him one of the most popular actors in Hollywood. The collection includes a 1994 Toyota Supra, a 1970 Dodge Charger Tantrum, and a 1973 Chevy Camaro Z28.
2. Daniel Craig
At first, Daniel Craig’s choice as the next James Bond was considered controversial. But his performance in the British film Layer Cake (as an “honorable” drug dealer trying to pull one last job) earned him the admiration of Casino Royale director Martin Campbell. As a result, Craig was cast and the franchise was successfully reinvigorated. And though his time as Bond has now come to an end, Craig has over-collected some impressive vehicles that are all too fitting for the man so many will always see as 007. The most impressive vehicle in his collection –– and the most Bond-like –– is an Aston Martin DB5.
3. LeBron James
“King James” has won four NBA championships, secured a lifetime contract with Nike (which some have speculated is worth one billion dollars), and is firmly established as one of the best basketball players and most influential athletes in history –– no matter where he stands in basketball’s “goat” debate alongside Michael Jordan. Given his almost otherworldly success, it would be stranger if James didn’t have some incredible cars in his garage than that he does. We suspect his favorite, though, is a Lamborghini Aventador Roadster, personally customized with a tropical floral print.
4. Phil Ivey
Well known to many through some 20 years’ worth of televised competition, Phil Ivey is considered by most to be one of poker’s all-time great players. He has won 10 World Series of Poker bracelets since 2002, and invested his earnings in multiple profitable endeavors, from stakes in poker initiatives to recent NFT ventures. Needless to say, Ivey has amassed a rather sensational net worth, and he’s put a small portion of it toward fancy cars! Ivey is best known on this front for driving a powerful Mercedes Benz SLR McLaren.
5. Scarlett Johansson
The popular actress has come a long way from her appearance as a conflicted teenager in Ghost World. Johansson has become one of the most recognizable faces of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, while also giving outstanding performances in critically acclaimed films like Marriage Story and Jojo Rabbit. She’s certainly earned herself a few nice rides, and sure enough, is known to drive a turbocharged 2012 facelift Audi Q5.
Beyoncé is one of the most successful singers of all time. She has produced innovative, acclaimed albums that have remained popular through the years and earned her multiple awards. She has also collaborated with a who’s-who of major artists from Ed Sheeran to her own husband, Jay-Z. Beyoncé also has her own fashion line (called Ivy Park) and has partnered with Adidas to release her own sneaker line –– to say nothing of other, less public investments. Queen Bey has done it all. Naturally, she also has a luxurious Rolls Royce Silver Cloud II –– a fittingly glamorous ride for someone who managed to build her own empire.
Having a successful career in sports, music or movies requires a capacity to make smart decisions. It’s not surprising then that some of the most famous celebrities have managed to pick out some of the most spectacular and enviable cars around.
So –– which is your favorite?
