Toyota Cressida, $7K
Another celeb who likes to keep it modest is Mel Gibson. Please humor me as I quote a TMZ headline regarding Gibson’s midrange 3.0-liter Toyota 4-door sedan. It’s his preferred ride. They named it the “Passion of the Cressida.” Totally meme-worthy.
You have to admit, the image of the Braveheart star navigating a sky-blue commuter car instead of a Mad Max renegade vehicle is at first a little disconcerting. Maybe the Lethal Weapon stud is not a car guy.
Rolls Royce Dawn, $350K
This Irish MMA fighter is pressing our testosterone meter to its limit. Conor McGregor is formidable. The man’s virility is so overwhelming he wears pink and turquoise to tone down the heat. A look into his garage pumps it up. McGregor’s supercar collection is an assortment of power and speed, a reflection of this fighter in the ring. In 2017, he added a Rolls Royce Dawn to his fleet. The sophisticated addition put him back $350,000.
He said driving the Rolls is like “driving a bouncy castle with wheels.” The somewhat scrappy UFC superstar emblazoned on the side of the Rolls with his Notorious MMA logo. The luxury black sedan looks so prestigious from the front view. This must have sent the Rolls Royce’s marketing crew into panic mode.
Toyota Prius, $28K
Like many Hollywood A-listers, Cameron Diaz opted to drive the Toyota Prius, the hybrid standard. Getting around town without contributing to Climate Catastrophe is a huge reprieve on the conscience. Stars know that fans will emulate their choices, so it’s an eco-choice that reverberates worldwide. And it’s affordable!
This little Prius cost just over $28,000. Diaz was one of the first Prius supporters, endorsing the car back in 2002. She was excited and bragging that her new car gets 52 mpg in the city. “Isn’t that exciting?” she asked. The only car that can outdo that mileage is an all-electric!
Ford F-150, $34K
The Roseanne star who became a movie A-lister with a $65 million net worth would rather drive a modest vehicle than a flashy supercar. Comedian and actor John Goodman appeared as Conan O’Brien’s first guest on the late-night show and he’s a frequent and popular guest at SNL. The down-to-earth movie star is really laid back.
He drives a Ford 4.2-liter V6 F-150 pickup. He’s also rumored to drive a Mercedes-Benz with an “Abide” bumper sticker in deference to the Dude. Come to think about it, can you picture the burly average-guy Goodman behind the wheel of a tricked-out Lambo? Maybe for a comedy skit.
Volkswagen Jetta, $16K
Justin Timberlake loves his Jetta, but he also loves his vintage Alfa Romeo Spider, his BMW 5-series and the rest of his fine assemblage. He owns quite a few Audis. Smitten with the brand, like so many Hollywood stars, the former boy band sensation partnered with Audi in 2010. He jumped in feet first with the car company as the spokesman for the Audi A1 line which led to him starring in a Super Bowl ad. His 2002 Jetta, a $16,000 purchase, is hardly worthy of mention, but he’s held onto it all these years, so there must be some personal sentimental value attached to it.
He also stores an Audi 1, Audi 4, Audi Q7, Audi TT, and an Audi 8. His wife, actress Jessica Biel, is a serious car lover. She brought a Lamborghini Aventador Roadster into the mix! Timberlake, for his part, brought in a respectable ride. The luxury and class standard, a Bentley Continental GT.
