Famous Celebrities and their Cars

Celebrity Stars and Their Cars

Paris Hilton

Driving up and down Hollywood Boulevard in a flashy car is never an easy cruise.

You can see lots of cars from the sleek Mercedes-Benz to the environmentally friendly Toyota Prius hybrid, Tinseltown’s favorite wheels are on parade.

Caught by paparazzi, Hilton arrives at the überchic Nanette Lepore boutique in her super-fly Mercedes-Benz SLR on Aug 8.

Rowan Atkinson is a car enthusiast in real life. His relationship with his Mini (The “normal Mini Cooper”) in the Mr. bean series was a mixed one.

Rowan Atkinson is estimated to be worth £60m and has been a car fanatic for many years. Though his collection of cars is well known he doesn’t like to be considered as a car collector. He occasionally writes about cars and races his Aston Martin V8 Zagato. He escaped unhurt from the car after crashing it into a barrier at an Aston Martin owners’ club event in Yorkshire in 2001.

Atkinson’s everyday car which he uses for family motoring is a relatively discrete Audi A8. When he wants a slightly more energetic drive however he chooses his McLaren F1, which he bought to celebrate the success of the film “Bean – The Movie.” This is one of the world’s most exclusive cars, and despite being 12 years old is still one of the fastest. Its production car speed record of 240mph has only recently been outdone by the Koenigsegg CCR and now, the Bugatti Veyron. Atkinson was in the McLaren when he crashed the car at 30mph into a woman's Rover Metro while driving along the A6 in 1999. The cost of the repairs to the £600,000 car? Around £100,000…

Fortunately, the Bean movie role earned him a cool £11m alone. He started his car collection in 1981; flush with the first fruits of stardom he bought an Aston Martin V8, his “first really nice car.” Other cars he has owned in the past include the famed Lancia Delta Integrale, Bentley Mulsanne, and more recently the MG X-Power SV. It is also believed that he holds an HGV licence. One car he won’t own is a Porsche. "I have a problem with Porsches," he once said. "They're wonderful cars, but I know I could never live with one. Somehow, the typical Porsche people - and I wish them no ill - are not, I feel, my kind of people. I don't go around saying that Porsches are a pile of dung, but I do know that psychologically I couldn't handle owning one."

Madonna FAQs, her father was a motor engineer; he knew everything about cars, auto parts and could repair any of them. So, Madonna owns mostly practical cars that are reliable and will not get broken on half-way home.

The Audi R8 and Iron Man

One Man. One Machine. One Mission.

The AudiR8 car was featured in the popular movie of 2008, Iron Man. It is a mid-engined sports car introduced by the German automaker Audi in 2007.

The first appearance of this car was in the year 2006, appearing at auto shows and events all over the world. Audi R8 is based on the Lamborghini Gallardo platform, as Audi has full ownership of subsidiary Lamborghini S.p.A.. Audi announced in 2005 that the name of the successful Audi R8 race car would be used for a new car road in 2007, the Audi R8, is based on the Audi Le Mans quattro car concept, which was based on the earlier Audi RSQ concept vehicle, appearing at the 2003 Geneva Auto Show and 2003 International Motor Show.

The R8 was launched officially at the Paris Auto Show on 30 September 2006. There is some confusion with the name which the car shares with the Le Mans winning R8 LMP. Originally, many thought the car would be called the R9 (as there is a gap in numbering left when Audi announced the R8's successor, the diesel-powered R10).

Pricing for the R8 model starts at around €88,000, although in Ireland, due to high VRT, the base price of the R8 is about €160,000. The base price in the US is $109,000.
