Quinton “Rampage” Jackson | Lincoln Continental

When the former UFC light heavyweight champion isn’t crashing his Audi R8, Rampage can jump in his slammed Lincoln Continental, hang an arm over the window and just cruise.

As you can see from the picture, Rampage likes the color black, and judging from his eclectic collection, he’s put some thought into covering all the automotive bases: Off Road, Track, Cruising, Looking Bad Ass.

Maybe I’m being a little biased as I love old school cars, particularly when they are slammed and black, but I score this car high. The purists will hate it, detest those rims, but for the reason it was purchased, it does the job perfectly.

Andy Murray | Aston Martin Vanquish

Andy Murray is a Scottish tennis star, the first Brit to win Wimbledon in over 100 years.  In the BBC’s documentary: The Man Behind the Racquet, Murray said he has already owned a Ferrari F430, an Aston Martin and a Jaguar XKR. The reason he gave for selling his Ferrari was that he “felt like a prat” – the Italian car obviously possesses too much flair for the Scot.

The British number 1 has since replaced the F430 with this stylish yet understated Aston Martin Vanquish.

Maria Sharapova | Porsche 911 Carrera

Maria Sharapova is a Russian tennis star with four grand slam titles under her belt. She has taken Wimbledon, the French Open, the US Open and the Australian Open. Not only a talented player, this leggy 6′ 2″ stunner has modelled for many of her endorsements, and her looks have seen her appear on the cover of Gent’s magazines and the highly-acclaimed swimsuit issue of Sports Illustrated.

Sharapova is known for liking the 911 Carrera. In fact, she owns more than one, but it’s this white model she is frequently spotted driving. The Russian beauty took the $130,000 car after winning the 2012 Porsche Tennis Grand Prix.

Jennifer Capriati | Ferrari 360 Modena

Jennifer Capriati is a successful American tennis star. Not only has she taken an Olympic singles gold, but she’s also won the French Open and the Australian Open twice.

She’s pictured here with her Ferrari 360 Modena in Fiorano, Italy. Clearly a fan of the Scuderia Ferrari racing team, she got to take her mid-engined V8 supercar around the track. Boasting a credible 400-bhp and a 190-mph top speed, this prancing horse set her back around $160,000.

Completely stock and not the most prettiest Ferrari ever made.

Kris Versteeg | Audi R8

Kris Versteeg is a pro ice hockey star currently playing for the NHL’s Chicago Blackhawks. The Canadian winger is seen here with his black Audi R8. Although completely stock, it’s nice to see the bare carbon side pod option.

The Audi R8 is sleek and stylish car; it’s just a shame its owner is wearing sandals and looks as though he’s just climbed out of bed.

Jon Olsson | Ultima GTR

Apart from his heroics on snow, Jon Olsson is known for his passion for cars, especially Lamborghinis. He owns a Murcielago LP670-4 SuperVeloce, a monster of a machine with a customary ski box on top of the roof. The Swedish skier also lives in supercar heaven, Monaco.

The X Games star likes to give his cars the signature camo wrap and ski box and often takes them on the snow. The one car he hasn’t tampered with too much is his lunatic Ultima GTR. This is one of the fastest accelerating and decelerating supercars… ever. The fact it’s road legal is astonishing as its Chevrolet 6.3-L V8 engine produces 534-bhp and 528ft-lbs of torque. Take into consideration its weight – 990-kg – and you have a car not even Sebastian Vettel would take on the snow.

An amazing piece of kit, but should you take this on the public highway, I fear you’d attract the wrong kind of attention.

Alfred Morris | Mazda 626

Alfred Morris has proven himself with some impressive stats in his rookie season, however, his talent hasn’t gone to his head like most players. In fact, this Redskins running back drives a 1991 Mazda 626 (a car he affectionally calls “Bentley”) and says he wants to keep him as long as possible.

So why have I given this old Japanese car a 7? Part of it is due to the fact retro Japanese cars are becoming cool and collectible, especially in the drift scene, and the other part is respect for Morris’ choice to stick with what he loves.

Bubba Watson | 1969 Dodge Charger General Lee

Bubba Watson is an American golf pro. The left-handed champion won the 2012 Masters Tournament. Thanks to his success, he is now a household name in the world of golf and the PGA. However, before he bought many luxury and sports cars, Bubba bought this Charger General Lee.

Not just a trophy hidden his garage, Bubba has been seen taking the General to events, and last year he was even turned down to appear at NASCAR’s Phoenix International Raceway for fear of the negative reactions to the confederate flag on the roof. What’s the world coming to?

Henrik Zetterberg | Maserati Quattroporte

Henrik Zetterberg is a Swedish ice hockey player for the NHL’s Detroit Red Wings. The captain and centre/left wing has a cabinet full of trophies, including the 2008 Stanley Cup and the Conn Smythe Trophy as the Most Valuable Player of the 2008 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Zetterberg is also a successful Olympian, winning golds in the 2006 Ice Hockey World Championships and the 2006 Winter Olympics. As you can clearly see, Zetterberg is a classy guy. Suited and booted and posing for the camera, only a Maserati will match that slick back hair and shades.

Lewis Hamilton | Pagani Zonda

Lewis Hamilton spent his entire career from a young age with McLaren. In 2007 he hit the ground running in his rookie season by finishing second and just one point behind Kimi Raikkonen. In 2008 he became World Champion and the media lapped him up, especially with his on/off relationship with ex Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger.

Lewis Hamilton is renowned for his style and it shows with this carbon and purple Zonda. Considered by many as the true supercar for its outrageous looks and massive horsepower, the Zonda looks like something that belongs on a Hollywood film set. The colors go together very well and I love those deep dish rims.
