Celebrities and their Cars

We all love cars but here are five celebrities who LOVE cars!

Ralph Lauren

Ralph Lauren’s passion for style is certainly illustrious, but it may indeed be eclipsed by his passion for automobiles.  The fashion magnate himself has one of the world’s most impressive car collections, a private grouping spanning nearly 100 years of automotive history featuring the most lust-worthy marques.  A 1938 Bugatti, a 1958 Ferrari Testa Rossa and a 2010 Lamborghini Murielago highlight his private stock, rounding out a collection of automobiles that rivals some of the world’s best.  Lauren’s garage is a museum of automotive history, an archive of performance machines that represent the finest achievements in Motorsports.

Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean)

As Mr. Bean, he always left chaos in his wake.  In August 2011 Rowan Atkinson was involved in a real-life disaster, crashing his 240mph supercar as he drove home from work on a spoof spy movie. The comedy star lost control of his McLaren F1, careening across the median into a tree and a road sign before the £635,000 sports car burst into flames. He walked from the car waited for an ambulance.Nick Mason

When he isn’t busy being the drummer for Pink Floyd, Nick Mason is an avid classic and luxury auto enthusiast.  Mason has a passion for fast cars, luxury cars and competed in the Le Mans 24 Hours race five times.  In his garage lurk the likes of Ferrari, Porsche 962, Bentley, Aston Martin, Jaguar, and Bugatti.

Jerry Seinfeld

You’d probably never think it, but funny man Jerry Seinfeld is a pretty hopped up gear head.

Now that he’s semi-retired with millions of greenbacks in the bank, the New York native finally has time to indulge in his favorite pastime – Porsche’s.  Seinfeld has no less than 60 cars in his collection.

Jay Leno

Perhaps the most famed celebrity who loves all that is auto; Leno’s luxury car collection includes approximately 200 specimens, including Bugatti and a jet-powered motorcycle.  Hey, whatever grinds his gears. Leno employs a full-time staff of four mechanics/fabricators to maintain his fleet of luxury cars.  He also has a complete workshop, and simply calls on his way to work to have the car of his choice ready for him.

A Honda for your Teen

You have teenagers, they always need to borrow the car and summer break is only a few months away. They always want to borrow the car a lot more in the summer… to get to their job, their friend’s house or to an activity.  Let’s say you’re going to buy them their own car to teach them about responsibility. Vroomgirls.com recently compiled a list of ‘6 Best New Cars For Your Teenage‘.

Here’s what they had to say about the Honda Fit:

“The Honda Fit is one of our favorite small cars for drivers of any age. Despite its diminutive, easy-to-park size, the Fit’s back seat seems impossibly big, and the 20.6 cubic foot cargo bay and fancy folding rear seat means the Honda Fit can accommodate all the gear your active teen can throw into it. The Fit’s simple control layout and big windows make for easy, distraction free driving, and while the Honda Fit isn’t the cheapest small car, it’s built to last — Hondas are notoriously trouble-free, which means the Fit can serve your teen driver through high school, college, grad school, and well into that first job, and will even accommodate car seats and baby strollers. In fact, it’s entirely possible that your teen-age Honda Fit driver may end up as an adult with a teen-age Honda Fit.”

We have new Honda Fits on the lot, so stop by Autopark Honda - we’ve got you covered!
