David Coulthard | Mercedes 280 SL

David Coulthard is a former McLaren and Red Bull Racing driver from Scotland. He is now a pundit for SKY TV, his deep knowledge and understanding of the sport an important and welcoming reason to tune in.

The piece of automotive glory pictured above is Coulthard’s Mercedes-Benz 280 SL. Introduced in 1967, this stunning classic still turns heads today, even in his homeland that is the opulent Monaco.

Jenson Button | Mercedes C63 AMG DR520 Wagon

2009 World Champion Jenson Button didn’t see much success throughout most of his career with Honda Racing. In 2008 the Japanese team were about to fold until they were bailed out by F1 brain Ross Brawn at the last minute. Brawn GP was born, a team whose cars dominated the entire season, whereupon Button claimed the world championship title.

Now with McLaren, Jenson drives this limited edition Mercedes Wagon. I think powerful wagons are super cool, especially this subtle flat paint finish. It makes for one hell of a sleeper, and for that reason, I’ll score it accordingly.

Top Footballers Cars

Running back for the San Francisco 49ers, Frank Gore is pictured here chilling with his Maserati Quattroporte. Giving the car a little flavor, California Wheels threw on some 22″ burgundy/chrome Asanti AF138s to match the body color – tastefully done, too.

It seems the 49ers players have vision and style when it comes to their rides as here we see Glenn Dorsey with his custom Rolls Royce Phantom. For an NFL player dabbling with customising such a regal car, I think the tints and rims go really well.

I personally detest this crazy Donk fad but thought I’d include one as NFL players seems to like them. Darren McFadden, AKA DMC or D-Mac, is a running back for the Oakland Raiders. I guess the bonus of donks is being able to get to those hard to reach areas when washing your car.

49ers offensive lineman, Chilo Rachel probably chose this whip to allow for his substantial 6’5”, 323 lb frame. Nice to see some rims that match the vehicle well.

Former NFL running back for teams like The Jets, The Bears and The Chiefs, Thomas Jones sure knows how to strike a meaningful pose, and if any car is worth posing in front of is a fire engine red Rolls Royce Phantom.

I had to include this ride as I want it… badly. Tight end for the Tennessee Titans, Delaine Walker definately knows what to do with a classic – forget the Donks and slam it into a Lowrider.

Anthony Davis plays defensive tackle for the San Francisco 49s and clearly knows how to make a jeep look cool. The 23-year-old is a behemoth of a man, so it’s probably best to remove the doors to allow for any overhang.

49ers linebacker,  NaVorro Bowman has his Porsche properly blacked out… in a good way. Simple window and rear light tints and spoked alloys with the yellow callipers on show is the way to correctly pimp out a Panamera.

It’s a well known fact Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush has a passion for buying cars. The cream of the crop so far in this list is this 1967 Shelby Mustang GT 500 – think Eleanor from Gone In Sixty Seconds. Not a lot to say apart from: Superb.

LaRon Landry plays safety for the Indianapolis Colts and is a player who also buys a lot of cars. He owns a Kawasaki green Lamborghini Murcielago but I think this matte white Aventador with black rims earns the right to grace this page.

Ashley Cole | Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG

Ashley Cole | Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG

Love rat and Cheryl Cole’s ex husband, Ashley Cole is an England International and defender for Chelsea FC. His resume is so impressive, with many F.A. Cup wins, a Champions League win, and a list of individual honors as long as my arm, Cole has certainly earned enough cash to fill his garage with some pretty impressive rides.

Somewhat understated compared to the other rides soccer players drive, this ‘murdered-out’ SL 63 certainly makes an imposing impression. I’m not quite sure what Cole is looking for – maybe he hasn’t figured out the gearbox yet?

When it comes to luxury brands like Mercedes, I think it’s best to stay classy and not force the issue with OTT mods. Cole has maintained a cool look with the flat black and matched the rims and that’s just about right.

Alex Ovechkin | Mercedes SL65 AMG Black Series

Alex Ovechkin | Mercedes SL65 AMG Black Series

Thanks to a few hockey sticks and shoulders to the mouth, Alex Ovechkin has that loveable goon look about him. The NHL’s Washington Capital’s Russian winger owns this truly menacing SL 65 Black with the license plate “A0 GR8”.

This Black Series doesn’t just look murdered out; it looks like the charred remains of something set up from hell.

William Gallas | McLaren Mercedes SLR

William Gallas | McLaren Mercedes SLR

French International soccer star and doing the rounds in London teams such as Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, William Gallas clearly likes to stand out in a crowd. Despite being a free agent at the moment, he’s obviously earned a ton of cash whilst on the pitch – is this chrome wrapped McLaren Mercedes SLR enough proof for you?

I’m not sure about these chrome supercars, but the McLaren SLR just about pulls it off as their race cars have always been silver and known as the Silver Arrows. For that reason I give it an extra mark out of ten.

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…

Ndamukong Suh | Mercedes S-Class AMG

This hulking defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is known in the automotive world as the Detroit Lions giant from the Chrysler 300 advert and the fact he lost control of his 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle.

His saving grace is piloting this Mercedes S-Class on the Gumball 3000 race. While the Gumball looks like a party packed race, it’s also a lot of miles so to put in seat team like that, you have to be a car guy!

Larry Fitzgerald | Car Collection

Larry Fitzgerald | Car Collection

It’s said that if Arizona Cardinal Larry Fitzgerald had the right quarterback, he’d be one of the best receivers in the NFL. Despite this being out of his hands, he has a few other things he can control. Pictured here with his livery is Fitzgerald’s red BMW 7-Series with matching custom rims. Along with a standard S Class and Range Rover is a powerful SL550.

Fitzgerald also recently appeared in a video at drewsgarageonline.com with his newly completed 68 Shelby Mustang – as soon as we have more pictures we’ll upload them.

Best Kim Kardashian Celebrity Car Photos

Love her or loathe her, there’s no doubt Kim Kardashian possess the kind of bulges and curves that put an E-Type Jaguar to shame. The Hollywood sticks may think she’s a little – dare I say it – chubby, but she’s happy in the way she looks, and so are most men if they are honest with themselves. Take the shot above, for instance – here we see the inside door of her blacked-out Range Rover. If you closer, you may see the twin air bags. Very nice… Continue Reading…
