It’s an unwritten rule that if you’re rich, you need to get a big car. It just feels right. It’s how people on the road can instantly tell you’ve done better in your life and they need to step up their game if they ever want to live life outside of their Fiat Punto.
Some celebrities seem to think that life inside of a Fiat Punto is just fine. I don’t know why, but there’s quite a bunch of them that just drive regular cars instead of custom-made sports cars that shout “rich kid”. Which is a very humbling thing of them to do, really. Humbling, but not really logical. I mean, what else are they going to spend all that money on? A private driver for their moderately priced car? See how silly that sounds?
Anyway, let’s take a look at 10 of these celebrities that don’t feel the need to rub in their richness with sweet rides.
No, I’m not talking about the Popemobile. The pope actually drives a Renault 4 hatchback, made in 1984. It’s so cheap, even I could probably buy it.
Conan drives a 1992 Ford Taurus SHO. Again, this is only a few bucks. A ’92 is basically considered junk. Conan’s of course is Conan’s and it would fetch a lot of money.
Nope, he doesn’t ride a broom. He does however drive the ultimate “I’ve given up on trying to look rich” car: a Fiat Punto.
The ex-CEO of Microsoft and LA Clippers owner drives a Ford Fusion Hybrid. That $35,000 is nothing compared to his $22.2 billion net worth. Yup, billion.
Clint drives a GMC Typhoon – a light duty truck that cost him $29,500 when he bought it new in the early nineties.
Mel Gibson, despite being worth $425 million, drives a Toyota Cressida. You could probably pick one in reasonable shape for $3,000 to $13,000..
Not really a surprise for an environmentalist like Leo, he drives a Toyota Prius.
JLaw drives a Volkswagen Eos. Not really a cheap car, but the $35,000 that car costs certainly didn’t set her back too much.
Colin drives a fifth generation Ford Bronco, which would cost you about $5,000, assuming it’s in good condition.
Tom Hanks drives a $15,000 Scion xB. That’s not too expensive for a guy that’s worth $390 million.
