1. Justin Timberlake – Volkswagen Jetta
Being a 90s kid Justin Timberlake has been on my radar since my music beginnings. The former member of NSYNC is all flash and lights when on station, but when he gets out he hops in his $16,000 VW Jetta. I suppose even the richest understand the value of the simple things in life.
2. Patrick Stewart – Jaguar XJS
Famously known for being Professor X from X-men, Jean-Luc Picard from Star Trek, and having been knighted by the Queen of England. You would expect him to be driving around in a limo, but the bald comedic genius for decades drove none other than the worst Jaguar ever produced, the 1989 Jaguar XJS V12. Don’t let the name fool you, this car was one of the biggest mistakes Jaguar ever made. With its faulty electrical setup and a V12 that would be out raced by a Honda Civic, this car is looks only. I suppose to some people looks are everything.
3. Brian Johnson – Vintage Royal RP-4
He is the ultimate rock star being the lead singer for AC/DC and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003. This mad man is also a huge car and racing enthusiast and his daily A to B driver is a vintage Royale RP-4 and Pilbeam MP84. According to his interview on BBC’s Top Gear.
4. David Letterman – Volvo Station Wagon
One of my favorite late night show hosts, David Letterman has ditched the need for a pretty looking car and went the other direction. An old Volvo station wagon, that by definition is horrid to look at. But having received it from racing fanatic Paul Newman, this stain came with a huge V-8 engine. This car will make people laugh, but you won’t hear them with the massive roar this car gives.
5. WILL.I.AM – DeLorean
Probably one of the most intelligent and original music stars of the 21st century. WILL.I.AM said screw the rules when it came time to buy a car with all the money had made while part of the Black Eyed Peas. So instead of a Ferrari or Aston Martin, this gentleman decided to come up with his very own design and paid to have a DeLorean be customized to fit his very pristine fashion sense.
Before you go looking to buy a car make sure and be smart about it. Make sure the car is Bluestar inspected. This tells you the current condition of the car. Don’t take any risks, after all it’s just not worth it.
