20144

What kind of car would you buy if you were a rock star? The most expensive and chic, encrusted with diamonds and with solid gold rims? The most powerful one to drive on the highway from the heart? A limited edition rarity like no one else has? Or, perhaps, a limousine tinted into the trash with all the amenities, where you can do anything while you are driven by a personal driver?

Wait to dream, let’s first study a little rocker fleet and the characteristics of their vehicles. We selected, perhaps, the most interesting specimens of celebrity cars, and we did not miss the most chic and expensive ones.

Take a look and decide which one you like best?

Matt Bellamy – Lamborghini aventador

  • Body: coupe
  • Power output: 700 hp
  • Engine displacement: 6498 cm3
  • Gearbox: Manual
  • Drive: full
  • Acceleration to 100 km / h: 2.9 seconds

Those who played Need for Speed: The Run probably remember this baby, because this is one of the fastest and most maneuverable cars. Most likely, it was precisely for these characteristics that Lamborghini Aventador liked Matt. During a European tour in 2012, Muse at full strength even visited the Lamborghini factory in St. Agatha and personally tested Italian-made cars. And you could see this car in the movie Transformers: Age of Extinction.

James hatfield – Buick skylark

  • Body: sedan
  • Power output: 190 hp
  • Engine displacement: 5272 cm3
  • Gearbox: automatic
  • Drive: rear
  • Acceleration to 100 km / h: 14.3 seconds

Few people know, but James is actually a good auto mechanic! He even has his own workshop, in which he restores and modifies the representatives of his fleet in his spare time. One of his beauties is the 1953 Buick Skylark, in which the leader of Metallica, together with fellow auto club mate Rick Dor, literally remade everything. From the edging of the headlights to the lifting mechanism of the side windows, from the design of the front bumper to the colors – nothing in this car was left unattended. The chic understated lavender Buick is simply designed to attract admiring glances.

Bruce springsteen – Chevrolet corvette

  • Body: coupe
  • Power output: 270 hp
  • Engine displacement: 4639 cm3
  • Gearbox: Manual
  • Drive: rear
  • Acceleration to 100 km / h: 6.7 seconds

Bruce bought this Corvette in 1975, after the success of Born to Run. The car appeared on several covers of singles and in booklets for albums; and indeed was a real favorite musician. Currently, this supercar can be seen in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Stephen Tyler – Hennessey Venom GT

  • Body: roadster
  • Power output: 1261 hp
  • Engine displacement: 7008 cm3
  • Gearbox: Manual
  • Drive: rear
  • Acceleration to 100 km / h: 2.5 seconds

Stephen Tyler acquired the ultrafast Hennessey Venom GT in 2012, requesting a modification with a removable roof at the factory, and he, of course, was not refused. This supercar is assembled on the basis of Lotus Elise in just 12 copies and is capable of a top speed of 440 km / h! But, despite all the advantages of the car, the Aerosmith frontman sold it at an auction a year later, sending the money received to charity.

Janice Joplin – Porsche 365

  • Body: sedan
  • Power output: 75 hp
  • Engine displacement: 1582 cm3
  • Gearbox: automatic
  • Drive: rear
  • Acceleration to 100 km / h: 11.3 seconds

Janice bought this used Porsche in 1968 and, deciding that she wasn’t happy with the car, gave it to her artist friend Dave Roberts to tear it to pieces more psychedelic. Roberts returned the car a month later, calling its new design “History of the Universe.” Bright and original Porsche Janice immediately became perhaps the most recognizable car in America. It is not surprising that less than a year has passed since he was stolen. However, later the car was found and used by the manager, after which it returned to the Janis family, was restored and provided to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum.

Jeff Beck – Ford Deuce Coupe

  • Body: coupe
  • Power output: 65 hp
  • Gearbox: Manual
  • Drive: rear

In addition to his love of music, Jeff is known for collecting, repairing and even assembling cars from scratch! For the Ford Deuce Coupe, the musician clearly has special feelings, because there are several of them in his fleet.

Trevor Wentworth – Jeep grand cherokee

  • Body: SUV
  • Power output: 286 hp
  • Engine displacement: 3604 cm3
  • Gearbox: automatic
  • Drive: full
  • Acceleration to 100 km / h: 8.3 seconds

After the World Tour Our Last Night in 2015, Trevor got the iconic Grand Cherokee SUV. Such a car is quite suitable for the young father of the family: you can transport building materials, go to the beach with your son, drive through the fields, and ride thoughtfully along the city roads in the rain in search of inspiration.

John Lennon – Rolls royce phantom v

  • Body: sedan
  • Engine power: 200 hp
  • Engine displacement: 6230 cm3
  • Gearbox: automatic
  • Drive: rear

After a telephone, a refrigerator and a double bed were installed in the car instead of the back seat, John decided to tackle the appearance of his new car. The native black color seemed to him too boring. Dear car dealerships refused to turn this Phantom into “something psychedelic,” and Lennon gave the car to … Gypsies! The Beatles frontman was ultimately extremely pleased, and after his death, the already legendary Rolls Royce was sold for a record $ 2,300,000, becoming the most expensive car in history.
