Wealth and celebrities often go hand in hand, but very few celebrities are cool enough to share the same passion for cars that we, mere mortals, have.With plenty of cash at their disposal, professional athletes often splurge on luxuries. Sometimes that includes amazing sports cars. These athletes drive some pretty crazy luxury cars that show off their status in the sporting world.
Either that, or they made some reckless decisions with their endless reserves of money.
5) Floyd Mayweather:
Preferred Car Type: White luxury cruiser ships and fast Italian super-cars (Ferraris)
Notable Cars: Two Rolls-Royce Phantoms, Two Bugatti Veyrons, Super-sports Bentley Muslanne, Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano, Ferrari Enzo, McLaren 650S, Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet, Ferrari 458 Italia, Lamborghini Aventador and a Maybach 62
When you make your living delivering beat-downs and knockouts before billions of fans, things can get too intense for any man. What better way to relax a little bit than to glide around in luxury cruisers? And what better way to let off some steam and show off some serious cash than to zip around in obscenely fast super-cars.
4) LeBron James
Preferred Car Type: White whips with white wheels
Notable Cars: Custom white Chevrolet Camaro SS with blazing white rims, white Mercedes S63 AMG with wicked white rims, Bentley Continental GT, Ferrari F430 Spyder customized by Unique
I just don’t get why almost all American athletes opt for the glaring all-white for most of their cars.
3) Bill Goldberg
Preferred Car Type: Classic American muscle cars
Notable Cars: 1965 Shelby Cobra replica, 1966 Jaguar XK-E Series 1 convertible, 1963 Dodge 330, 1969 Dodge Charger, 1970 Boss 429 Mustang
Goldberg is one of those guys who’s had dream cars ever since he was old enough to dream. Once he made enough money, he went back and bought these cars he’d been dreaming about since childhood.
And the muscular giant who tears people apart for a living loves American muscle cars. Two words. NOT. SURPRISED.
2) David Beckham
Preferred car type: Anything goes, I guess. But speed doesn’t seem to be the primary preference.
Notable cars: Porsche Turbo, Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe and Rolls Royce Ghost, Bentley Continental Supersports, Cadillac Escalade, Bentley Mulsanne
“Goldenballs” needs no introduction. Probably the world’s best known footballer, he’s now retired from after playing for England, Manchester United and Real Madrid. And with plenty of money that keeps flowing thanks to lucrative endorsement deals, Beckham’s car collection just keeps on growing.
1) Sourav Ganguly
Preferred car type: There’s no denying that the cars from German trio – Mercedes-Benz, Audi and BMW – are among the most popular celebrity cars in India. Maybe they just like the brand names.
Notable cars: 20 Mercedes-Benz cars of various types (including his favorite, the open top CLK convertible), 4 BMW, an unknown number of Audis and various other undisclosed custom models.
Former Indian cricket captain Sourav Ganguly has the largest collection of cars among cricketers and among most living men probably. He owns a fleet of 20 Mercedes-Benz cars and four BMWs among many others. He is often seen driving a Mercedes Benz CLK convertible, presumably his favourite. The exact number of cars he owns remains a well-guarded secret.
