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.

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.

Johnny Knoxville | Cadillac Eldorado

Johnny Knoxville Cadillac Eldorado

MTV Jackass and movie star Johnny Knoxville looks pretty incongruous leaving the infamous Chateau Marmont in his 70s Cadillac El Dorado. Not really a “High Speed Weekend Survivor” like his T Shirt proclaims, but super cool all the same.

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.

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.

Tony Gwynn’s 1964 Cadillac Fleetwood


This post is all about an old school car owned by an old school ball player. Hall of Famer, Tony Gwynn is a baseball legend in San Diego. He is statistically one of the best and most consistent hitters in baseball history.

This is his 1964 Cadillac Fleetwood that was customized by West Coast Customs. This car has been completely restored and has a candy blue pearl paint job with white vinyl top. The wheels are 22″ chrome Dayton 150 spoke wheels.

These daytons look great on this car. It perfectly matches the beautfiul glistening chrome trim everywhere on the car. This car is clean! Love the white interior with blue stitching.
