It's a summer pastime everyone has encountered. You drive home only to be stopped by a bunch of young girls directing you to some car wash, either as a charity drive or just a regular business. Even though you need to get home, you stop and listen to what these girls have to say. Why? Because girls and cars go together like wine and cheese, peanut butter and jam, ice cream and apple pie. You get the point. All of these items sound great when you just think about them.
The bad part is that most girls don't drive exciting cars. They are usually petite, cute, functional, economical etc.. Even in Hollywood, the Prius is the most popular car among female celebrities. What a buzzkill. But what happens when the girl you see on TV or hear on the radio loves a cool car as much as you do? Then that mix we previously mentioned becomes exciting again. Girls will be girls however, and many of them just ruin their cars with their feminine touch. But there are oh, so many more that keep the dream alive.
15 Chiara Ferragni: Driving A God Knows What (But Who Really Cares?)
At this moment there are fourteen other cars along with their driver to show you but it's damn hard to move past this one. She's a 29 year old lawyer, fashion designer, blogger, author and a Guess jeans spokesperson. Wow! At this point, the details of her resume don't really matter. If you are good at just about anything and can look this good in front of that thing, then she can sell and promote swamp land in Florida to anyone on this planet. It's going to be gone in 60 seconds. Can't confirm if this is her car or not, but at this point, who cares?
14 Beyonce: 1959 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud II Convertible
The diva needs no introduction and she owns just about every car possible. But this is definitely her most expensive possession. Only 2417 of these were ever produced in its three year run between 1959 and 1962. This behemoth was not built for speed. Its huge 6.2L V8 engine was only able to move this 2.11 ton behemoth from 0-60 in around 11 seconds with a top speed around 114 mph.
The company never ever gave you innovation, high-tech or speed, just the feeling of a solid well built car. Even its advertising slogan, 'At 60 miles an hour the loudest noise in this new Rolls-Royce comes from the electric clock' states so tediously what people shelled out big money for, in this otherwise dull car. What cost roughly 6000 British Pounds back then, cost her husband around 7 digits when he bought this for her on the singer's 25th birthday. But man, does she ever add the spice needed to put the edge back into this boring beast.
13 Nicki Minaj: 2014 Lamborghini Aventador
So, girls stereotypically like Pink, we get it. Nicki, herself loves Pink. It's in every single title of every single album she has ever released. Pink has made her a Twitter sensation, the most Tweeted rapper in history. Everyone follows you to see what wig you'll wear, what outlandish costume you will wear next, all in order to entertain us. You are great and you are wonderful this way to all those who buy your stuff.
But why? Why this? You just bought a gorgeous $400,000 car, and then ruined the factory paint and repainted it with pink! Dark pink, at least, but it's still pink. Nobody ruins the factory paint on a Chevy Spark, let alone on this masterpiece. All right it's been 3 years since you've bought this car, and by now we should all be over this. The car still rockets to 60 in under 3 seconds, with enough G-Forces to train a cadet for a space flight. It can still race to a top speed of 230 mph. So I guess no damage was really done to the soul itself.
12 Courtney Hansen: Give Her Any Muscle Car
From the stereotypical, we move onto a girl who can hold a monkey-wrench, look good holding it and still know how to use it. A tomboy and a jock all in one, the 41 year old former fashion model showed us how to restore old classics and make them new. She took this talent to host NBC Sports, Powernation (CBS Sports). As an author she taught women to maintain their car in The Garage Girl's Guide To Everything You Need To Know About Your Car, a guide for women and first-time car buyers. That just sucks for guys. I mean, why can't guys learn how to maintain their cars from you as well? What's up with that Courtney, why do girls get to have all of the fun?
Couldn't tell you which one of the many cars she has restored this one is. But it's front and center on her website, so either she loves this car to death or she just thinks she looks hot in it. Either way, hopefully one of the readers will know.
11 Paris Hilton: Bentley Continental GT
We just had to go back and display the car of yet another Hollywood princess. Image is everything in that town, so why not buy an automobile that matches it. The Hotel heiress turned business mogul who can be seen wherever there is a camera, sure went all out on her image. Nicki Minaj just repainted the outside of her baby. Paris redid the whole damn car. Forget the elegance and tastefulness British cars are known for.
So after shelling out around $220k back in 2014 for the basic car, she hired the famous car tuning team West Coast Customs, who transformed the car into her signature masterpiece with pink leather seats, dashboard and wheels. Of course, when the Barbie Doll in her goes out on the town with this thing, she has to be seen with a matching outfit and matching pink purse. Why can't the normal human being become rich and look stylish doing this kind of stuff? The rest of us just look dumb.
10 Tamara Ecclestone: Ferrari 599 GTO
What does the daughter of Formula One Group chief executive Bernie Ecclestone, drive? What else but the car from the maker that helped build that billion dollar fortune. The Italian socialite, model and Formula One host spent exactly what a person would when they know they are going to inherit billions someday soon. The car cost somewhere around $450,000 when it was purchased a few years back.
Unlike the other divas on this list, her ego was kept in check and the car maintains that same classy interior and subtle paint job that screams: "I'm stylish and sophisticated". Of course, the image she needs to maintain fits her car to a tee. This 661 HP monster weighs in at 3550 lbs and goes from 0-60 in 3.4 seconds, with a top speed of 208 mph. In 2011, that made it the fastest Ferrari to ever hit the streets.
9 Gigi Hadid: BMW M2
When you become a spokesperson for a brand, you just have to be seen driving that brand. Tiger Woods drove a Buick, Supermodel Gigi Hadid gets to be seen in a BMW. In 2015 at the age of 20, she won enough Model of the Year Awards to last a lifetime. What better way to launch your new M2 then to drape the most famous starry-eyed model today, in a sultry red dress. BMW can already see all the young millennials salivating, and why not? The tiny car itself doesn't need much help to appeal to its audience. For roughly $52k, you get 365 horses under the hood that can propel you to 60 mph in 4.0 seconds in an automatic no less. Not bad at all.
8 Victoria Beckham: Range Rover Evoque
From the young and sultry, we go to the elegant, distinguished and still damn hot Victoria Beckham. Range Rover settled on this charming lady to sell their classy SUV and they couldn't have found a better spokesperson who represents exactly what the British automaker provides. For a little while, a Range Rover was all Victoria got to drive. But it's not all that bad for her, because she actually designed the vehicle given to her by the automaker. The former pop star was commissioned by Range Rover to customize and dream up the interior and exterior details of the car in a manner becoming of the fashionista. Only 200 of these limited edition vehicles were ever made and sold at a cost more than twice the base model. Victoria only drove hers for 1400 km in 3 years before she sold it a few months ago.
7 Amber Rose: Jeep Wrangler In Pink Chrome
At this point, readers must have realized that the color pink is all the rage. Amber Rose was no exception. A couple of years ago, her Jeep was pink as well. But what's a poor girl going to do to stand out? She recently figured out how to set herself apart, by adding chrome to her paint job, making her probably the only owner of an electric pink Jeep on this planet. However, if one takes a step back, keeps an open mind and sees the difference, the new version does look much better. A pretty modest car for a multi-talented lady who launched her own line of eyewear some seven years ago and also makes money as a singer.
6 Amber Heard: 1968 Mustang
There is something cool about a young, roughly 30 year-old lady, who recently appears in a car fan's dream movie in Drive Angry, and then goes out and restores a real mean muscle car. Admittedly, Amber didn't restore it. It was featured in the final season of Overhaulin', a car restoration show, that combines its work with pranks on the people whose cars are being restored. On the show Johnny Depp convinced Amber that her car was stolen for the third time. Amber is then heard screaming "Get my car back!" to a police officer, taking pictures of her on his cell phone. When the police officer appears not to give a damn, she gets agitated, then she sees her restored classic that she bought with all of her savings as a teenager. This was probably the last happy moment she had with Johnny.
5 Jodie Kidd: Jaguar F-Type
She is a fashion model, and race car driver who once held the TV show Top Gear record for the fastest Celebrity Lap in the Suzuki Liana, while driving around in her Maserati. Her attraction to cars has given her quite a few racing gigs as both a driver and spokesperson, and now host on Top Gear.
She was also a star Polo player, hence one gathers she grew up with a little bit of money. She had one of the grandest car collections ever, but a couple of years ago at the age of 35, she gave up the catwalk and a few of her cars in order to raise children. She still kept the gorgeous car above, a Jaguar F-Type that costs around $140k when fitted with the 5 Litre supercharged V8 which pumps out 575 HP, and races to 60mph in under 4 seconds.
4 Amy Macdonald: Ferrari 458 Speciale
What do you do when you're young, and you just hit it big in the music world? You go out and spend roughly one-fifth of your fortune on one of these babies. The Ferrari 458 Speciale is the most powerful V8 to ever come from the super car maker. The 597 HP street racer can make it to 60mph in under 3 seconds even if equipped with its aluminum lid that retracts in under 14 seconds. All of this can be had for somewhere in between $300k and $1 million, depending on which one of the hundreds of options you put on this car. We are assuming that she told Ferrari to put everything on this thing. With 3 great selling albums, she can afford it. Hopefully she will continue to sell a few more if she wants to buy any more of these things.
3 Kylie & Caitlyn Jenner: Ferrari 458 & Porsche GT3 RS
These are two hot cars, but there is something wrong with this picture, because the excitement is just not there. Who spends $150k on a super fast German roadster, that can outrun most of its far more expensive Italian competition, and then chooses purple? At least the car choice is relatively unique as it seems everyone who wears a skirt in Hollywood is buying the same Ferrari 458, Lamborghini Aventador or Bentley.
Having said this, the pale blue color on the Ferrari ain't bad at all when you consider that most of the other outlandish characters in Hollywood would have painted it pink. So in that respect, kudos to you Kylie for being unique. Kylie also owns a Mercedes G-Wagon, Rolls-Royce Wraith, a Range Rover and a Rolls-Royce Ghost.
2 Blac Chyna: Lamborghini Huracán
The latest and greatest of all Lamborghinis, The Huracán, is owned by non other than Blac Chyna. What does this girl do to afford this thrill ride? She owns a beauty bar offering makeup courses. She was a successful model for two years. Oh, we forgot to mention that she does that other thing that makes you money, she hangs out with the Kardashians. Come on people, do we keep having to give these people our money? How many members does this family have in this world anyway? She didn't even buy it herself, but got it as a gift from Rob Kardashian. What does he do again? I think many of us have lost track. The car though is awesome; 610 HP of pure adrenaline. It gets from 0 to 120 mph faster than most cars get to 60. At least when they spend their money, they spend it well, even if they bought it in purple.
1 Setorii Pond: Everything
The car queen and fashion designer from California probably owns more cars than everyone on this list combined. She buys and sells cars at will, as such she has an ever changing car collection. We could have showed a picture of her entire collection, or her classic Ferrari, Jaguar and Mercedes collection. But this is entertainment and I dare anyone to find a better picture than this one of the Navy brat. The automobile looks like a modern Jaguar. Her car collection was passed down to her from her grandfather, her looks come mostly from her mother, but to the rest of us she just may be the perfect woman, combining two of the greatest things that guys just love.
