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.

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.

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.

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?

Tulisa Contostavlos | Purple Audi R8

Purple Audi R8 | Tulisa Contostavlos

purple audi r8

If you’ve never heard of Tulisa Contostavlos, a quick Google search exhibits some pretty interesting reads.   We’ll leave that up to you to check out but outside of the drama Tulisa is a also well-known singer in the UK, FMH’s Sexiest Woman in the World 2012 and is a judge on the TV show,  X-Factor.

Tulisa’s purple Audi R8 definitely fits a woman as it’s obviously painted a feminine color but its also the Spyder (convertible) which we feel is less manly than the coupe. We think some matte black concave wheels, window tint and blacked-out trim could really set Tulisa’s purple Audi R8 off.

Justin Bieber’s New Chrome Car | Fisker Karma

chrome fikser

Justin Bieber just had his Fisker Karma wrapped in chrome vinyl. This car is one of the hottest cars out right now and looks even better wrapped in all chrome. You usually see this chrome wrap done on Audi R8s or internationally in Japan and Saudi Arabia. I think this is going to be the new trend here in the United States.

Matte black is played out and chrome is making a come back!

I like the contrast with the dark wheels on this car. Chrome wheels would have been too much.

Justin Bieber’s Cadillac CTS-V aka Batmobile

 

This is Justin Bieber’s matte black Cadillac CTS-V coupe customized by West Coast Customs. These pictures were taken at SEMA 2011 by GT Spirit. The car has suicide doors and is wrapped in matte black vinyl. It also has a custom audio system that is no joke. It is sitting on 20″ matte black Asanti wheels which look really good on this coupe.

I was tempted to give this car a good rating but you can not take it seriously for two reasons. 1) It is a 17 year olds car. 2) It has batman logos all over and is batmobile themed.

Justin Bieber Matte Black Ferrari F430

I would have never thought a 16 year old pop singer would have one of the best cars on this website. Justin Bieber beats out most of the NBA, NFL, and MLB players.

This flat black Ferrari F430 has 20″ gloss black wheels in the front and 22″ gloss black wheels in the rear and red pinstripes to match the red calipers.

It looks like its not a vinyl wrap, and it is actually painted flat black. I also like that the wheels are gloss black instead of flat black like the car, the contrast really makes it look nice.

Jamie Lynn Spears Range Rover

Jamie Lynn Spears seems to know a little something about cars.

Her White Range Rover is sitting on a set of 22″ Chrome Staggered Wheels with a very deep lip in the rear.

The back wheel looks smaller than the front wheel in this picture, but its just the angle of the lens.

I am suprisingly impressed by her car.
