C.J. Wilson | McLaren P1

MLB All-Star and Los Angeles Angels pitcher, C.J. Wilson knows all about exotic car ownership. Despite selling a lot of his auto arsenal, the car addict is still left with a McLaren MP4-12C, an ultra-rare Carerra GT, as well as other Porsches and Ferraris.

Wilson’s pockets are deep but this isn’t always enough to secure ownership of all exotics. After experiencing the way in which Ferrari operate after buying his 599 GTB Fiorano, Wilson vowed to never own a Ferrari again. Although he had the cash on him to buy a brand new Ferrari 360, the Italian company wouldn’t sell him one.

Lucky for Wilson, he’s always had a soft spot for McLaren going back to the days of Aryton Senna. When Wilson heard the rumours about a new McLaren hypercar, he went straight to his McLaren guy and managed to secure a spot on the 375 place list. McLaren simply wanted a cool $1.15M and list of the previous cars he had owned (one being their MP4-12C), and voila, they accepted and Wilson now owns this 903-bhp space fighter.

Here we see Wilson testing the P1, along with all the other lucky owners invited by McLaren to see just what they are getting for their money.

Barry Zito | Range Rover

Barry Zito | Range Rover

Barry Zito is a pitcher for the San Francisco Giants and spent seven years with the Oakland Athletics. For someone earning around $19M a year, this Range Rover is pretty standard, although it does have an air of sawn-off shotgun and drug dealer about it.

I think the whole package is too standard, and whilst the rims are okay, there are way better available.

Brian Wilson | 1964 Cadillac Coupe Deville

Brian Wilson | 1964 Cadillac Coupe Deville

Brian Wilson is an ex San Francisco Giants pitcher who now plays for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Known for his trademark beard, Wilson was recently offered seven figures to shave it off by the razor company 800Razors.com. If he were to accept, he would have enough money to buy a fleet of Cadillacs, plus he’d also be a brand ambassador for the company.

This 1964 Caddy Coupe Deville Lowrider looks amazing on those big rims. The contrast of white and black really make the wheels stand out. Perfect car, perfect look.

Hanley Ramírez | Chevrolet Camaro

Hanley Ramírez | Chevrolet Camaro

 

Hanley Ramírez (left) is a shortstop and third baseman for the Los Angeles Dodgers. If cars do indeed reflect our own personalities, Ramírez is one colorful baseball player. This Dominican 2006 Rookie of the year is pictured here with his Ferrari yellow Camaro and matching wheels. If those rims were just an inch bigger, this Camaro would be teetering on the edge of becoming a Donk.

Matt Latos | Audi S5

Matt Latos | Audi S5

Matt Latos is a baseball pitcher for the Cincinnati Reds. His debut saw him play for the San Diego Padres aged 21, where he pitched for two years. Being 6′ 6″ and 245 lbs, Latos has picked the perfect ride in an Audi S5. Suitably sized and offering a good amount of power, Latos’ S5 has been tastefully modded with tinted rear lights and windows, its white rims finishing off the over all look very nicely.

John Buck | Harley Davidson Ford F250

John Buck | Harley Davidson Ford F250

Jonathan Richard Buck is a catcher for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Highly regarded for his defensive ability, Buck has played for the Mets, the Marlins, the Toronto Blue Jays and the Kansas City Royals. Not jumping aboard the muscle/exotic train, Buck has chosen this cool Harley Davidson edition of Ford’s F250. With the oversized arches and huge amounts of play in the suspension, this Ford looks like it could enter Monster Jam.

Albert Pujols | Ford F150

Los Angeles Angels batter Albert Pujols knew exactly the look he wanted to achieve when he chose this black Ford F150.  The 33-year-old 6-time Silver Slugger and 2-time Golden Glove award winner added the perfect black rims and chunky tires to create this menacing and rugged 4X4 monster. The truck is also tastefully stanced and sits just right on its suspension.

Alexi Casilla | Porsche Cayenne

Porsche Cayenne

Check out this Porsche Cayenne customized by Alex Vega at The Auto Firm in Miami, FL. Alex Casilla is a 2nd baseman for the Minnesota Twins. This is one of the most unique Porsche Cayennes I have come across. It has a really aggressive body kit, anybody know what kind?

Besides the body kit, the wheels look amazing because the spokes come out all the way to the edge of the lip. I like the color scheme on the Porsche Cayenne, white and gloss black everywhere.
