Snoop Dogg | 1968 Cadillac Coupe de Ville

The guy pictured above needs no introduction whatsoever. Known for his ‘pimp’ image and being one of the most respected and seasoned rappers on the planet, Snoop Dogg’s taste in cars reflects his style.

Snoop is straight old school when it comes to his rides and doesn’t dig any of the modern models currently available. His favorite two cars are the Caddy Coupe de Ville, and the rappers choice, the Chevy Impala. According to Snoop, you need at least two of each, pimped out to give it your personal signature.

Here he is pictured with his white ’68 Coupe de Ville – one cool car with one cool owner. I’m not too sure about the graphics, but you just can’t fault a classic Caddy.

Greyson Chance | 1966 Ford Mustang

Greyson Chance is an pop rocksinger, songwriter, pianist who made a name for himself in 2010 by performing Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi” at a music festival. The 51-million YouTube views created a doorway and he made and appearance on The Ellen Degeneres Show. Chance’s debut album, Hold On ‘Til the Night was released in 2011, helping him boost his YouTube hits to over 14-million views.

This 16-year-old is known for having a passion for the classic Mustang, and after finding his dream car, he’s bought one.

The 1966 ‘Stang features a 200ci six-cylinder Challenger engine under the hood. Boasting 300 horses, the engine transfers its power through a three speed Cruise-O-Matic automatic transmission.

The kid has even given her a name – “Moses”

I like the fact a teen has a passion for the classic, particularly this modest example. You can’t really go wrong with a Mustang, but if you’re going for that retro look (notice the rusty wing?), forget the chrome rims.

Curren$y | 1979 El Camino

Louisiana born, Curren$y is an American rapper signed to Jet Life Recordings, Warner Brothers and a former member of 504 Boyz.

The 32-year-old is a huge car fan and has a special place in his heart for Chevys. Unlike most rappers or celebrities, Curren$y likes to browse eBay for potential cars to work on, like his El Camino which needed interior work.

Pictured above, this 1979 Chevy El Camino obviously means a great deal to the rapper as it appears in three of his music videos: “Twistin’ Stank”, “King Kong” and “Daze of Thunder”.

Harry Styles | Ford Capri

When you are an extremely popular member of a boyband the chances are you will take a few minutes out from your female adoration and pop into a car showroom or two. Harry styles has visited many, from Ferrari to Land Rover, Porsche to Jaguar, but this British Ford is one of his coolest rides.

The One Direction star owns this 1970’s Ford Capri. It might look unassuming to American onlookers, but because of it’s 3-L V6 and its comparatively light weight, the Capri was the boyhood dream throughout the 70s and early 80s. It was popular in British TV, too – whilst The Dukes oF Hazzard had the Charger, The Professionals had the Capri.

Retro classic and highly sought after in the UK, especially the older model Harry is pictured with.

Dizzee Rascal | Porsche Cayman

Dizzee Rascal is an English rapper, songwriter and producer proud of his Ghanaian and Nigerian roots. His music took off when the underground grime genre started making headway when it blended with sounds of UK garage. Dizzee put his own spin on the genre and hit the ground running, merging hip hop and R&B and tearing up the chart’s top 10.

Despite being a rapper, Dizzee does “keep it real” as he isn’t one to boast about jewels, labels or the size of his rims. Here we see Dizzee climbing from his understated Porsche Cayman in Soho, London.

Top 10 Celebrities That Drive a Porsche

Porsche and the celebrity have a very healthy relationship. Although the Porsche isn’t in same price range as some of the expensive cars celebrities go for, its German build quality and rich heritage has celebrities selecting cars from their entire range.

Here are 10 celebrities of various entertainment genres with their various models from the Porsche range.

Funny man and Superbad star Jonah Hill recently acquired this Porsche 991 Carrera, a car he uses to cruise around Los Angeles in whilst shopping.

For rapper Chris Brown this Porsche Turbo S looks fairly normal. He’s already crashed a black one, so let’s hope he not only keeps this one in one piece, but he also leaves the paint job well alone. If you’re not sure what I mean, check out his Lamborghinis.

Miley Cyrus has been in the news a lot recently, mainly because of her twerking and lack of clothing. Here we see Miley in one of her classic outfits that suggests mild neurosis; her choice in purchasing this Porsche Cayenne GTS, however, is anything but.

Singer LeAnn Rimes had only just taken a parking ticket off the windshield of her Porsche Panamera when she got snapped. The 31-year-old should perhaps think about spending some cash at the car wash than on herself next time out shopping.

PGA star, Rickie Fowler obviously likes his cars to stick to the road like glue, as here we have a blacked-out Nissan GT-R and a Porsche GT3RS. I love the Porsche’s colour scheme – very retro and very fitting.

Pop star Ashley Tisdale has just filled up her Porsche Boxster at a gas station in Hollywood. Not the best choice of Porsche available, especially if you have the cash to buy a 911.

Despite Ellen Degeneres’ hat, she was spotted showing a little style and taste by stepping into her black Porsche Turbo S at a restaurant in L.A. Apparently this TV star loves driving fast and hates all other cars on the road – for that, I forgive that hat.

If you can look past those perfectly sculpted legs, you’ll find Lauren Conrad’s Porsche Cayenne. This girl has a superb sense of style in looking good whilst both walking and driving.

Rapper, Soulja Boy had good reason to bombard his Instagram/Twitter accounts with photos of his new Porsche 991 Cabriolet as it is a stunningly good looking ride. Although, lose the arm, Soulja Boy, you look like a right…

Maroon 5 star and “The Voice” judge, Adam Levine likes the classic look and was spotted running around in his this gorgeous 356 Porsche with his latest girlfriend riding shotgun.

Top 10 Modified Celebrity Cars

Although this may sound like a fairly straight forward Top-10 look into the broad and varied world of celebrity cars, when it comes down to finding 10 “top” celebrity mods, it’s actually harder than you think. Celebrities are known for their often big and eccentric egos, and they like nothing more than displaying this in their cars. When money is no object and your ego is big and/or eccentric, car mods and visions usually go terribly wrong. Take the Hulkster below and his SRT Viper, for instance, and you see what I’m up against here. The Mk I Viper happens to be one of my favourite cars, especially in red with the factory yellow rims, but this is going too far.

So after much internet trawling, I present to you some of the better and tasteful celebrity modifications. This is entirely subjective, of course, but anyone finding the above attractive shouldn’t even be reading this article in the first place.

Now this is more than you’re average modded out car. This serious piece of machinery is a Hennessey Venom GT Spyder, a highly-modified version of the Lotus Exige. Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler bought this one for a cool $1.1M. You wouldn’t think someone wearing that sock/sandle combo would require a car capable of 0-200-mph in 15.9 seconds.

Known for hosting The Car Show on Speed TV and The Man Show, Adam Corolla has a very nice car collection. Apart from his race-spec JDM livery and Lamborghinis, he’s also got a very nice Aston Martin DB9 modified by legend Chip Foose. Apart from a hood scoop, Brembo discs and calipers and some black aftermarket 18″ wheels were fitted.

Not actually in shot in the collection, this is a very rare Ford RS200 owned by a very lucky Tim Allen. For a funny man this car couldn’t be anymore serious. The RS200 Evolution is a Group B lunatic of a car, helping the FIA finally make the decision to ban Group B rally. Most of these cars ended up in collections like this, and this particular car has just 3,500 miles on it. It doesn’t look that outrageous, but consider this: 0-60-mph in 2.1 seconds on tarmac… and that was in the late 80s.

This modified car is one of many unique and rare cars owned by TV legend Jay Leno. This monster is powered by an M47 Patton tank engine and has a custom aluminum body. It has 810-bhp and weighs in at 4300-kg (1/11th of the actual tank’s weight).

It’s thought Leno is set to upgrade with fuel injection and twin turbochargers to double the bhp to 1600-bhp, so around 400-bhp per tonne. Not that it will trouble Leno’s wallet, but this tank car will only manage 5-mpg.

Ralph Lauren is obviously a man with natural style and vision, and this shows in his car collection. Pictured above is the fashion mogul driving his Porsche RUF CTR-3 around the Hamptons. More than just a body kit and custom styling, the RUF CTR-3 features the kind of technology that gives you 750-bhp, a top speed of 233-mph and 0-62-mph in 3.1 seconds.

WWE wrestling star, Bill Goldberg is known for his love of muscle cars, and his clone of the ’70 Satellite to a Plymouth Superbird is simply stunning. The Superbird was either loved or hated in NASCAR, but it was eventually banned because of its aerodynamic advantage and 200+mph speeds.

Reality TV star, Barry Weiss owns his fair share of classic customs like this ’47 Cadillac. Being an avid collector for most of life, he knows when he’s hit upon something special. Is there anything cooler than doing a burnout on your own drive in a custom caddy?

Singer Cee Lo Green is looking chilled in his modern spin on a ’35 Auburn Speedster. Loving the flat paint combined with this red centre hubs.

Years before the Fast & Furious franchise began, Paul Walker (Bryan) admitted to laughing at the JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) cars, but thanks to the F&F movies, he found himself totally infatuated by them. His personal garage features many JDM turbo rockets, but it’s this slammed Datsun 240Z that does it for us.

If I think about Sly Stallone driving I picture that ultra cool grey muscle car he uses in Cobra, but unfortunately he doesn’t actually own it. He does, however own this old school hot rod, a ride he likes driving around Hollywood.

Fabolous | Ferrari F12 Berlinetta

Fabolous Ferrari F12 Berlinetta

 

Rapper Fabolous may very well be praying to God and thanking him for his success and also for creating the F12 Berlinetta. In white this Ferrari looks stunning and this particular model really suits the colour, unlike a few models (F355 and F430) where it actually cheapens them.

 

Fabolous has really made a great choice in both car and colour. Nuff said…

Lana Del Rey | Jaguar XKF

Lana Del Ray
Lana Del Ray is a singer/song writer/model whose talent saw her sign a record deal at 22. The 27-year-old thinks of herself as a ‘self-styled gangsta Nancy Sinatra’ and is know for driving her retro classic Mercedes SL around town. Here, Lana has decided to try something a little more contemporary in the form of this Jaguar XF. Having modelled and posed with a red version, I wonder if this was a gift from the Big Cat company?
