Cars of The Stars – Notable Celeb Cars of 2020
2020 has been a year of challenges and adaptation but it’s also been a year of growth, redesign and unveiling. Speaking of which, 2020 has seen the unveiling of pretty impressive cars being driven by some pretty impressive celebrities.
Whether old, new or somewhere in between, we’ve scoured the dizzying heights of the celebrity driving playground and found our top 5 cars being driven around in style in 2020.
Who: David Beckham
What: Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe
Why: When it comes to luxury car ownership, footballer David Beckham has built up quite the collection. From hummers to Porsches and Ferraris to, most notably and recently, the purchase of the super sophisticated Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe. But just what makes this car superstar so special?
Boasting a huge and impressive V12 engine, this unique car, which actually possesses qualities more similar to a yacht, can reach 60mph in just under 6 seconds. For a car that weighs in excess of 3 tons? That’s pretty magnificent. Complete with its own decking, this luxury grand tourer is loud, proud and looks every bit as intimidatingly luxurious on the road as you’d expect. The perfect companion to a superstar celeb.
Who: Lady Gaga
What: Lamborghini Huracán Evo RWD
Why: Okay, so this may not be one of Lady Gaga’s personal purchases but this ultra-loud, flashy, and impressive supercar features in her recent 911 music video.
It’s aimed at those who seek to gain pure pleasure and excitement from their ride. And boy, does it excite. With a sleek nose, sharp angles and body work that says “don’t mess with the best”, the only way to drive this supercharged supercar is to pull the top down, hit the open road, and feel the exhilarating wind in your hair.
Fancy being one step closer to owning this spine-tingling coupe? Fans of Lady Gaga can enter a competition to become the proud owner of a Huracán. Supporting the Born This Way Foundation, a gift for Lady Gaga is a gift for her fans.
Who: Jim Carey
What: Mercedes-AMG SL 63
Why: As a celebrity with a big personality, it’s only right that Jim Carey owns an equally impressive car. Enter the glamorous 2-door SL63 roadster. Picking up this hot ride after ending a relationship in his personal life, Jim Carey is frequently spotted out and about town in this flashy motor.
And it’s not hard to see why. As one of two powerful AMG versions of Mercedes' two-seat open-top S, this particular Mercedes has a powerful 6.2 Litre V8 engine with a show-stopping 518 horsepower. It’s incredibly agile out on the open road and comes with spectacular acceleration - it’s able to go from 0 to 60 in just 3.9 seconds. The SL 63 is a pretty impressive vehicle and one that fits right in on the celebrity circuit.
What: Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600
Why: Due to an increase in demand for luxury SUVs, Mercedes-Maybach felt the need to keep up and design their own version. And they didn’t hold back. With a pretty eye-watering starting price of £150,000, this stunning car is not for the faint-hearted but it is dripping in extravagance. That’s what makes it the choice of car for Rapper, Ludacris.
It may be a thing of beauty to look at but it also provides a serious amount of comfort for its drivers and passengers alike. Possessing light-alloy wheels, an eye-catching grille and sophisticated chrome detailing throughout, it even offers an active air ride for entering and exiting the vehicle. It’s clear to see why Ludacris showcased his personal blue and silver trimmed Mercedes-Maybach GLS 600 on Instagram. Go and take a luxurious look for yourselves.
Who: Kim Kardashian
What: Cadillac Escalade
Why: Unveiled as direct competition to the Mercedes-Benz ML-Class and Lexus LX, The Cadillac Escalade is a bigger than average SUV. As their fifth SUV in their collection of luxury cars, Kim and Kanye recently picked up their Cadillac Escalade with the imminent arrival of baby number 3, Chicago West.
Focused on providing its passengers family sized comfort, it’s a true symbol of celebrity culture. Expensive? Absolutely, the 2020 model starts at £82,515 for the base trim. But it’s also fuel-efficient and has unbeatable towing capacity. And it’s not just Kim getting involved. In fact, between them, the Kardashian clan owns more than 4 Cadillac Escalades. If that doesn’t indicate status, we don't know what does.
