John Cena | Custom Supercar

WWE star, John Cena has every classic and sought after muscle car on the planet, including a gorgeous orange Roadrunner. Just think of any muscle car icon and Cena most likely owns it. For that reason, I have decided to include the custom build he used for the 2013 Gumball 3000 rally.

Cena’s Frankenstein creation is called (wait for it) the InCENArator – and they say wrestlers have air between their ears. The car was built by reality show “Dream Machines” Parker Brothers Concepts in Florida. The main structure and power comes from a wrecked Corvette chassis and engine, the foundation over which Cena let his creative juices flow.

It’s a rather striking car, a real head turner, but I can’t help but think of the cult movie “The Wraith” (Google it and you’ll see exactly what I mean). It looks like a Hollywood attempt at creating a car for the year 2062.

Unique but just falling short of cool.

Anderson Silva | Chevrolet Camaro SS

Anderson Silva is a Brazilian mixed martial artist and former UFC Champion. He sets a record in holding the longest title defense streak in UFC history, and although this ended in 2013, he amassed 16 consecutive wins and defended 10 titles.

Silva clearly likes his cars as big and bold, as here we see him on an episode of West Coast Customs. His Camaro SS received a custom paint job, custom Silva Bee grill emblem, Silva Bee embroidered headrests, functional Transformers 2 bumper air inlets, custom trunk subwoofer system, and many other interior upgrades.

I’m a fan of muscles cars and love the SuperBee/Transformers 2 old school theme. Those custom rims really set the paint and other upgrades off too.

Top 10 Basketball Player’s Cars

Like most athletes, what they drive around in matters, and this is defiantly the case when it comes to the NBA. Ballers are responsible for the most diverse and eclectic collection of cars in the sports world. From Donks to 4X4s, you’ll find them all here, and being taller than the average male doesn’t stop ballers from buying small and sporty either.

Here we see Golden State Warrior Stephen Curry II with his pimped out Mercedes G-Wagon. Considered one of the greatest shooters in the game, this baller thinks big when it comes to his rims and ride.

Kevin Wayne Durant is a forward for the Oklahoma City Thunder. This Olympic gold medalist and former Rookie Of The Year has chosen one of Ferrari’ finest with the California.

George Hill, Jr. is the Indiana Pacers’ points guard with an obvious creative streak. This is what happens when an athlete and a vision is bought into reality. I’ll leave you to decide whether it’s a good vision or a nightmare.

Chris Andersen, aka “Birdman” is a center for the Miami Heat with a slightly different vision. This monstrous International was customized by Car Toys in Denver, CO. Matching it’s imposing presence, it sits upon 22.5″ black wheels. Big truck for a big guy.

Miami Heat forward LeBron James has a Ferrari F430 convertible. It’s nice to see a Ferrari that isn’t red, and not only that, the after market rims actually suit this car – for an athlete this is even more remarkable.

6′ 11″ L.A. Lakers center, Dwight Howard certainly needs leg room when it comes to his cars. What better way to transport that 270-lbs torso around than in this silver white Bentley Mulsanne?

Marc Gasol Sáez is a Spanish center for the Memphis Grizzlies. 2012 NBA All-Star and 2013 NBA Defensive Player of the Year, Grisol owns a rather reserved yet stylish Jaguar XK.

Miami Heat Michael Paul Beasley, Jr. plays both forward positions for the Miami Heat due to being ambidextrous. Beasley loves black on black as seen here on his Range Ranger. He also has a black on black Bentley Flying Spur.

James Harden is a shooting guard for the Houston Rockets and a 2013 first-time All-Star. His beard is almost as impressive as his yellow Chevrolet Camero. A fan of making an impression, Harden also has a murdered-out Range Rover and an all white Mercedes S Class.

Reggie Evans is a power forward for the Brooklyn Nets and is one of the ‘Donk’ clan. I’m personally not sold on these cars and their stupidly over-sized wheels. It doesn’t take Freud to tell you its a form of ‘look at me’ attention seeking. It certainly attracts attention, although perhaps the wrong kind…

Andre Iguodala | Corvette

Andre Iguodala is a swingman for the Golden State Warriors of the NBA. At 6′ 6″, Iguodala is known for his dunking abilities and is considered to be one of the leading defenders and shooting guards in the game.

Although not particularly exciting compared to some cars featured on here, it’s nice to see an untouched example. This red Corvette is and always will be the classic American sports car. Why change something if it ain’t broke?

Rob Dyrdek | 1969 Chevrolet Camaro

rob dyrdek camaro for sale

Rob Dyrdek may have been a professional skateboarder, he may have been a TV star, and he may have been a number of other things but he’s nothing less than an American entrepreneur. While building up amazing businesses from toy lines, to TV shows, he’s also collected a few nice cars including this 1969 Camaro which he recently sold. In terms of customizations, it’s hard to go wrong when you are building a 69 Camaro. We’re big fans of Rob, love this Camaro, and can’t believe he let it go.

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.

Thomas Davis | Chevrolet Camaro

Thomas Davis Chevrolet Camaro

This Carolina Panthers linebacker loves retro muscle cars. He owns a mix of cars that unfortunately include a few ruined classics in the form of donks. Fortunately, he makes up for it by owning a 454 big-block 75 Caprice boasting 750-hp and this Chevy Camaro.

Being a fan of big power, Davis featured in Dub Magazine: “I’m just fascinated by cars,” he admitted. “I love them. It’s always been there, that love. But being able to afford them makes a huge difference. My dad had a lot of cars growing up, and that’s where I developed that love…

…If it’s old school, I love a good strong engine, and the old school that I have, definitely,” Davis continued. “It’s gotta be something with a 400 or better in it.”

The Camaro pictured has been tastefully modded to suit its mean image. The red signatures combined with all that black score a bundle of points with us.

Kobe Bryant | Chevy Impala

Looking for a custom lowrider? Here’s your chance to own a piece of Kobe Bryant’s personal collection (for a hefty price tag).

Back in 2006, Kobe Bryant’s wife, Vanessa Bryant had a 1963 Chevy Impala convertible customized as a gift for Kobe by the guys over at West Coast Customs. I’ve never spotted Kobe driving this Impala before and unfortunately I never will because he’s decided to sell of the custom ride by listing it on eBay with a “buy it now” set at $100,000! Considering Kobe has his Ferrari 458 Italia and a Lamborghini Aventador (along with many other cars), I’m guessing this Impala wont be missed for long.

Sedrick Ellis | El Camino

Sedrick Ellis' El Camino

Sedrick Ellis is a former NFL player for the New Orleans Saints and the Chicago Bears. Known for his love of muscle cars, he added this sinister looking Chevrolet El Camino to his collection. He obviously loves the ‘murdered out’ look, as aside from this mean El Camino, he has a collection of muscle cars he calls his ‘Black Beauties’.

Charles Johnson | Lamborghini Gallardo and 69 Chevy Impala

Charles Johnson Lamborghini Gallardo and 69 Chevy Impala

Carolina Panthers defensive end and team captain Charles Johnson might be nicknamed “Big Money” for his $76 million contract extension he signed in 2011, but he’s definitely not acting like it. The team leader is modest about his success and is more focused on living up to the hype of being a franchise player.

Looking to lead by example so that the Panthers are a top team next season, Johnson isn’t going to be resting this off-season. Instead, he’s going to be working harder than ever to ensure his predictions about his team come true. But he won’t be all work and no play—taking time off to show his rides some love, especially his 2012 Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder LP560 and 1969 Chevy Impala convertible. And he loves both equally, explaining how they’re his all-time favorite rides.

“The Lamborghini was my childhood dream car,” he admits. “I knew when I had enough money, I’d get one.” And Johnson didn’t let his large stature stand in his way of getting his dream ride. He had the seats extended in the Lambo to allow him to comfortably take it out for its weekly ride.

Then there’s his custom ’69 Impala, which was sitting in his garage for a full two years before he got around to tweaking it to his specifications with the help of Ultimate Audio in South Carolina. Now it’s dressed exactly how he first imagined it when he purchased it early in his NFL career. And because he’s an old soul at heart, Johnson also has Ultimate Audio fixing up his latest old school, a 1969 Cutlass that will follow his all-black garage theme.
