Hailing from Northern Ireland, Eddie Irvine was a Formula One driver from 1993 to 2003. He was a big winner, making the podium for the first time in 1995, and was also a runner-up at the 1999 World Drivers’ Championship.
His original team was Jordan, but Irvine switched to Ferrari in 1996. He might not drive for the brand anymore, he does own a Ferrari 280 GTO, and is only one of 271 people who have a car of this make and model – it was only produced between 1984 and 1987.
Newman has Added Major Upgrades to this Little Vehicle.
It's just a Chevy C10, but Ryan Newman has made it drive like a dream thanks to aftermarket parts like a Turbo 350 transmission. But the point of this car isn't to make it the biggest, meanest machine on the streets.
Newman has said even though it doesn't give you a lot to look at, it has everything he needs: “It's a farm truck. It's not perfect. It's got rust and a gun rack in the back. I call it a beater even though it's not. I like it just the way it is.”
Gordon Was Always On the Hunt in His Jaguar
The Jaguar XK8 might not be the flashiest car that Gordon owns – and we've already heard about plenty of those – but this little British powerhouse was one of his favorites. It has unbelievable acceleration, able to go from zero to sixty in 6.2 seconds, and zero to 160 kilometers per hour – its top speed – in only sixteen point five seconds.
Unlike a lot of the cars on this list, it could be driving right next to you and you might not even notice, but you're sure to notice when it blows ahead of you when the stoplight turns green.
A TV Replica is Ryan Newman's Favorite
Ryan Newman is a big fan of the classic sitcom "Stanford and Sons" – just take a look at his ride! It's an exact replica of the classic version of the Ford F-150 that Sanford drove as part of his salvage business. The rust is just right, the decals are perfect, and it probably runs the exact same way.
You might be surprised to find that this is one of the cheapest cars on this entire list, valued at only two grand. Newman put his heart and soul into making this replica vehicle, and he gets plenty of compliments!
Gordon Has Plenty of Cool Cars to Show Off
Nothing screams a beautiful classic car like the 1952 Oldsmobile Super 88 convertible that Jeff Gordon has hidden away, and if you're any kind of car guy or gal, seeing this black beaut is sure to turn your head.
Gordon picked this ride up for an incredible price – only seventy thousand dollars at a collector car auction held annually. “...I ended up getting it and think I got it at a pretty good price,” Gordon says of the purchase. “When the seller of the car comes over and says 'You stole that,' from what I understand, you did good when they say that.”
