Celebrities enjoy the finer things in life. They have nice homes, they take great vacations, and they own nice cars. Actors, music artists, and athletes making millions of dollars would most likely not be caught getting in a car that could tarnish their image. Talk about the life.
What are the most popular celebrity cars? Well, first we should say that the most popular celebrity cars usually don’t go for under six figures, BUT there are some that do. With that said, there are also some rides that go for well over seven figures. Either way, celebrities seem to have honed in on the same vehicles because there are about 12 different models/brands that celebs drive.
Check them out….

The Maserati was made famous in celebrityville by Vincent Chase of HBO’s Entourage. Well, it wasn’t, but for fans of the show they remember their was an episode that featured this beautiful machine. Now perhaps you’ll see Miley Cyrus, 50 Cent, a whole host of athletes, and Lindsay Lohan cruising around in a Maserati from time to time. It’s definitely one of the most popular in Hollywood.

Porsche may be the official car of celebrities and athletes in this country. Because of the various models of Porsche all types of celebrities are owning them. Rapper The Game, Gwen Stefani, Jim Carrey, Jonah Hill Rob Kardashian and once again a ton of athletes own the various models of Porsche. The Cayenne is particularly popular with female celebrities.

Mercedes G Wagon
Every single Kardashian female owns a Mercedes G Wagon. Mercedes as a whole is a popular celebrity vehicle. The G Wagon is one of the most popular SUVs amongst female celebrities. Aside from the Kardashians, Audrina Patridge, Ashley Tisdale, Megan Fox, and Hilary Duff all drive Mercedes G Wagons. Even royalty rocks the G-Wagon (Queen Rania of Jordan seen above)

If you thought the Cadillac Escalade was so 2000 and late you were wrong. Escalades are still going strong. Another popular vehicle with athletes, the Escalade is also omnipresent with celebrities. Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade, and David Beckham rock this super SUV, but so does Teri Hatcher, Whitney Port, Travis Barker and Paris Hilton. At least Hilton’s is an Escalade hybrid.

Our personal favorite and one of the more common celebrity SUVs, the Range Rover is the car of preference for Ryan Seacrest, Aaron Eckhart, Jeremy Piven, Jessica Simpson, Michael Phelps, Olivia Wilde, Angelina Jolie, and Kiera Knightley. That’s not even the start of the list. I guess celebrities have pretty good taste after all.

The Aston Martin takes our list of celebrity cars to the next level. Mercedes, Porsche, and Range Rover are expensive cars, but not unobtainable for the common man. Aston Martin and the next few cars take it to a whole other level. Daniel Craig (that’s James Bond’s car for the record), Hugh Grant, Sly Stallone, Halle Berry and a dozens more own this several hundred thousand dollar machine.

As we continue to ascend up the price range (and ascend a whole heck of a lot) we stumble upon the Bugatti Veyron. This isn’t necessarily a common celebrity car, but a car that celebrities spoil themselves with (it costs about $1.7 million). Those driving this unbelievable car include Cristiano Ronaldo, Simon Cowell, Jay-Z, Tom Brady, Tom Cruise and a few other super rich.

The Bentley is a particular favorite among rappers and athletes, but you can also find the likes of Cindy Crawford in one. For the most part the Bentley is a favorite of hip-hop stars Nicki Minaj, Soulja Boy, Rick Ross, The Game, and Bow Wow. Surprisingly, Bentley isn’t as popular as the other cars we started the list with.

Coming back to earth, we have a bunch of celebrities who enjoy the simplicity (yes, we’re really saying simplicity) of a nice Lexus. Mila Kunis, Al Pacino, Tony Hawk, Charlize Theron, and George Clooney all drive Lexus. It’s nice to know that some of the bigger celebrities don’t need to spend a million dollars on a car.

We’re not going to forget BMW just because Kim Kardashian pimps around her Mercedes G-Wagon. BMWs are awfully popular cars among celebrities. Brad Pitt, Kristen Stewart, Laura Dern, Taylor Lautner, THE SITUATION, and Anne Hathaway all drive BMWs. Ultimately, BMW isn’t as popular as Mercedes, but still present in Hollywood. The BMW seems to be more popular with overseas celebrities
Staying in the BMW you’d be surprised how many celebrities are driving Mini Coopers. Personally, I look right through them when I see one on the road, but not all celebrities do. Frodo, himself (Elijah Wood) loves his Mini Cooper, as does Wayne Rooney, Jimmy Fallon, Britney Spears, and more.

Last, but not least, we have to honor those celebrities who are looking after good ole’ Mother Earth. We’ve seen all types of SUVs, million dollar cars and more, yet still many celebrities drive hybrids! How awesome is that! Adrian Grenier, Cameron Diaz, Leonardo DiCaprio (he’s greener than you think), Larry David, and Ryan Gosling are all into doing their part for the environment. (I guess we should remember that not all hybrids are cheap cars!)
