Hollywood actors and their shenanigans have been captivating the masses for decades. From Marilyn Monroe and her infamous “Happy Birthday, President“ song to Johnny Depp and his theatrical trial against Amber Heard, Hollywood celebrities are always the center of attention. Some of these celebrities enjoy the glitz and glam associated with being famous, and therefore must maintain a certain image.
Given the fact that most celebrities earn graciously, they can afford to drive some of the nicest cars on the market. Hollywood actors that drive insane hypercars are not representative of the entire industry. With that said, rare are the actors that do not drive something some gearheads can only dream of owning. These cars are often reserved for a very specific segment of the population.
10 Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson: Pagani Huayra
Former NFL player and WWE wrestler, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson eventually made it to the big screen. Making his on-screen debut in The Mummy Returns in 2001, The Rock went on to become a Hollywood superstar. Now featured in every single blockbuster, The Rock has cemented his reputation as a versatile and professional actor.
There are several surprising facts about Pagani and its cars. For example, only 140 Zondas have been made since the creation of the company. Pagani manufactures very exclusive supercars and Dwayne Johnson knows it. The superstar is the proud owner of a Huayra. The Huayra comes with a twin-turbocharged 6.0L Mercedes M158 V12 that pumps out 730 hp at 5,800 rpm and 738 lb-ft of torque at 2,250 rpm. Going from zero to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds, Johnson must have issues getting in the narrow cockpit given his size.
9 Emma Stone: Audi S6
Emma Stone is perceived as one of the most accomplished actresses of the last 15 years. Making her debut alongside Michael Cera and Jonah Hill in the raunchy comedy Superbad, Stone went on to star in other high-grossing movies such as Zombieland and The Amazing Spider-Man. In 2017, Times Magazine named Stone the highest-earning actress in the industry.
The 2014 Audi S6 is a terrific sports sedan. Equipped with a twin-turbocharged 4.0L V8 that pumps out 414 hp at 6,400 rpm and 406 lb-ft of torque at 5,200 rpm, the S6 is the perfect car for an accomplished actress looking to stay somewhat incognito. With an estimated net worth of around $40 million, it is quite normal that Stone traded in her Mini for a more enjoyable vehicle.
8 Idris Elba: Bentley Continental GT
British-born actor Idris Elba has been in a variety of movies and TV shows. With several appearances in the American version of The Office and roles in The Avengers, Elba made a name for himself in the film industry. Being an overachiever, Elba became a DJ in 2009 when he was hired by BET. The actor has since focused on becoming a superstar in the EDM scene.
It is unclear which version of the Continental GT Elba went for. If he did go home with the top-line trim, his Continental GT is fitted with a twin-turbocharged 6.0L V12 that makes a calming 626 hp at 6,000 rpm and 604 lb-ft of torque at 1,700 rpm. Elba set a new land speed record driving a Bentley Continental GT back in 2015. On top of being an accomplished actor and promising DJ, Elba is a genuine piston head.
7 Michelle Rodriguez: Jaguar F Type
Michelle Rodriguez is known by most car fans as the badass chick in the Fast And Furious franchise. Rodriguez hit her first major role a year before starring in the first episode of the saga. Since then, Rodriguez has been featured in major high-octane motion pictures such as Machete and Resident Evil. The actress is no stranger to sports cars that are as exciting as her movies.
The Jaguar F-Type is a gorgeous sports coupe that packs a decent punch. Equipped with a supercharged 3.0L V6 that makes 335 hp at 6,500 rpm and 332 lb-ft of torque at 5,000 rpm. It may not be as insane as the souped-up 1971 Jensen Interceptor Rodriguez’s character drives in Fast 6. Granted Rodriguez was arrested several times for driving under the influence, but the Jaguar F-Type is already plenty.
6 Ryan Reynolds: Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster
The Canadian-American actor has been in front of cameras for well over 30 years. Starring in Hillside, a Canadian teen soap opera, Reynolds would go on to be featured in some of the highest-grossing movies such as Deadpool and X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Reynolds is not only one of the sexiest actors alive, but he is also an avid car fan.
Although it is the end of the road for the Lamborghini Aventador, the outlandish supercar garnered the attention of the rich and famous globally. The nervous 6.5L V12 unleashes 730 hp at 8,400 rpm and 508 lb-ft of torque at 5,500 rpm. Reynolds may not drive his Aventador frequently since he and his wife and former co-star, Blake Lively, have three children together.
5 Priyanka Chopra: Rolls-Royce Ghost
Winner of the Miss World contest in 2000, Priyanka Chopra went on to become an actress. Featured in several Indian motion pictures, Chopra became a Bollywood icon in India. She first appeared on the big screen alongside Dwayne Johnson in Baywatch. As her acting career in the United States was taking off, Chopra was offered roles that would eventually prove that she is one of India’s most valuable exports.
As Chopra’s rise to stardom became increasingly pronounced, the actress treated herself with a Rolls-Royce Ghost. The elegant ghost comes with a twin-turbocharged 6.6L V12 that makes 562 hp and 575 lb-ft of torque. However, the actress must have been sold on the level of luxury and the overall aura of the gorgeous car. Chopra was the very first woman in India to own a Rolls-Royce.
4 Vin Diesel: Dodge Charger “Tantrum”
Vin Diesel is well-known as Dom Toretto in The Fast And The Furious franchise. While Diesel is mostly known for his role as Toretto, he was featured in great action movies such as Pitch Black and Babylon A.D. It is not a secret that Diesel and co-star and friend Paul Walker are avid petrol heads. Diesel may not be the supercar type of guy, but he sure has a thing for American classics.
The Tantrum is one of the sickest cars built by SpeedKore. Diesel’s love for Dodge Chargers is no secret to anyone. With SpeedKore showcasing some of its cars in Fast 9, it was only logical that the company gifted Diesel with a Tantrum. The Tantrum comes with a massive twin-turbocharged 9.0L Mercury Racing V8 that pumps out 1,650 hp. Thanks to a plethora of carbon parts, the Tantrum is lighter than a regular 1970 Charger.
3 Margot Robbie: Cadillac Escalade ESV
The beautiful Australian actress had her breakthrough in The Wolf Of Wall Street. Starring alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill, Robbie made her name for herself and started landing an increasing number of lucrative roles. Robbie starred in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood as well as in the controversial The Suicide Squad.
Similar to other actors in the industry, Robbie decided to remain low-key without settling for a Toyota Prius. The Barbie movie protagonist settled for a vehicle that fits her character. The Escalade ESV comes with a 6.2L L86 V6 that makes 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. The Escalade ESV is the perfect vehicle to drive to a movie set without getting harassed by the paparazzi.
2 Kevin Hart: Plymouth Barracuda “Menace”
The 5’2″ comedy giant started his career as a starving stand-up comedian. Despite getting booed off-stage several times, Hart worked on improving his delivery and content to be where he is today. Being one of the main actors in movies like Ride Along and Jumanji, Hart successfully transitioned from the comedy club to the big screen. It is also well-known that Hart has a thing for classic American cars.
Built by SpeedKore, the Menace is a sick restomodded 1970 Plymouth Barracuda that nearly killed Hart. The Menace comes with a Whipple supercharged 6.4L HEMI V8 that pumps out 720 hp. Hart was not driving when the crash happened. It is fair to assume that the driver of this beast was not used to handling that much power. Hart eventually got a new toy following his accident. The restomodded Camaro’s nickname is “Bad News.”
1 Zoë Kravitz: Range Rover Sport
Daughter of Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz, Zoë Kravitz was born in the world of entertainment. She started her acting career in the romantic comedy No Reservations back in 2007. In 2011, she landed a role in the superhero movie X-Men: First Class. Since then, Kravitz has been featured in a variety of movies. Kravitz is not only an outstanding actress, but she is also a talented singer.
The base Range Rover Sport is not necessarily the most exciting sports SUV out there. However, if Kravitz decided to splurge on an insane SUV, she may have gone for the supercharged 5.0L Jaguar V8 that develops at least 503 hp. It has often been said that the Range Rover Sport is a women’s car, despite being an extremely luxurious and sporty SUV.
