If you’re into watching TMZ or the E! network, you’re used to seeing celebrities drive around in all sorts of high-end, expensive cars. The most common cars, obviously, are Ranger Rovers. You can’t go five seconds, watching a channel like that, without seeing Kim Kardashian stepping out of her ridiculously gaudy, customized Range. It’s just what celebrities do; they all buy the same expensive car so they can all be part of the “in” crowd.
There isn’t much creativity in the celebrity car world. Sure, the Biebs has a Ferrari and so does Chris Brown and some people have Rolls Royce’s, but nothing that surprises, when coming from an ultra-rich community.
There are very few “average” luxury cars amongst them. Few celebrities drive Mercedes, apart from the G Wagon, BMWs and Audis. But being BMWBLOG, let’s see if we can find some bimmer drivers amongst the rich and famous.
The beautiful actress and business woman has recently been spotted exiting her brand-spankin new BMW X6. She’s also been seen with a BMW 750i, so it seems Mrs. Alba is a fan of the Bavarians. I don’t know about any of you, but I wouldn’t mind having her be the spokesperson for BMW.
NHL player, currently with the Florida Panthers, drives a BMW i8. Very good choice indeed Scottie. It isn’t all that surprising to see a celebrity buy an i8, as nothing else looks quite like it and it should probably gather a lot of attention. I’m actually surprised more celebs don’t drive them. I wonder if driving such a high-tech car would make any of his friends say “Beam me up Scottie!” when they want a lift.
Many celebrities drive Priuses (what’s the plural for Prius?) to give themselves a green image, but the Prius is such a hatefully dull vehicle. So It’s nice to see a celebrity drive something that’s green but also stylish and exotic, like Halle Berry’s BMW i3 – even though it was just for a movie. Good on you Halle Berry, but it still doesn’t make up for Catwoman.
The Legally Blonde star (it’s kind of sad that’s what she’s still known for even though she made a comeback with her new flick Wild) and her husband have been spotted driving an ALPINA B7, a very interesting and different choice. Very cool. I wonder if that’s what they were driving when she went on an alcohol induced tirade at the police officer who pulled them over.
That’s right; Turtle from Entourage drives a BMW. Though, the BMW in question happens to be an X5. Not really in keeping with the Entourage lifestyle.
To be honest, it doesn’t matter to me what Heidi Klum drives, because I’m not going to be able to notice the car. But if I look hard enough I can see she drives a BMW 6 Series convertible. That has to be a sight, to see her driving in that, top down (the car’s) in sunny California.
I’m not exactly sure what the British actor is driving these days, but one thing is certain, and that is how absolutely brilliant he was in the BMW Films. A series of short films, directed by big screen directors and starring Clive Owen, depict a talented driver using his skills in a variety of situations, all while driving BMWs. “The Star” happens to be my personal favorite, starring Mr. Owen, Madonna and directed by Guy Ritche (Madonna’s husband at the time). Even if he isn’t driving a BMW at the moment, he has earned Cool Bimmer Guy status.
Most of these celebs are attractive women, so maybe BMW is onto something here. Either way, it seems that not many of the tippy-top of the A-List Mountain are driving bimmers. I wonder why that is? Is it because they aren’t flashy or expensive enough? I’m not really sure. But to the few select famous people who do drive Ultimate Driving Machines, I applaud you for having good taste, and not just trying to fit in with the crowd.
