Celebrities are no different, but they have the means to buy some of the most elite classic cars on the market. Check out 30 of the best below.

30: Ferrari 360 Spider – Dr. Dre

The king of the G-Funk era is the highest-paid rapper and producer in the history of the industry. Naturally, his tastes in cars are just as expensive. So Dr. Dre likes anything that has a Ferrari badge on the hood. Unlike his earlier Testarossa, the 360 Spider is one of the most well-known Ferraris in the last couple of decades. The design of the car was iconic and notable at the time of its release. The styling has lasted to this day. Enthusiasts are still interested in what the car has to offer.

The 3.6 L V8 packed a powerful 400HP into the wheels, which was and still is quite powerful. The unique exterior colors on the car made it stand out from the crowd. Ferrari went modern with this design and most of the vehicles in the lineup still look similar to this day. Obviously, Dr. Dre has a serious amount of cash to play around with, and the Ferrari 360 is a unique addition to his collection.

29: 1965 Ford Mustang – Will Smith

Smith made a name for himself by starring in some of the most iconic movies of a generation. Smith also has a hidden love for cars, although he seldom shows off to the public. He also has a few unique models. The 1965 Ford Mustang is dressed in a cherry red paint job and it is pretty much factory condition. Smith loves the car because of its lightweight design and the fact that he always wanted one as a child. The original Mustang has increased in value dramatically, and he is sitting on a pretty piece of automotive history.

Naturally very few cars can create the same kind of feelings the 1965 Ford Mustang invokes. The car was single-handedly responsible for sparking the pony car race that we see today between the Camaro and the Mustang. Smith naturally has good taste in vehicles and the Ford Mustang is an excellent pick.

28: Jay Leno – Citroën SM

The late-night comedy host and car collector have quite a few gems in his garage. One such car made its way all the way from France and features one of the most endearing designs of the decade. The Citroën SM is a car that looked like the future way back then, and now it looks even better. The car has a lot going on it in terms of design and implementation. The performance was derived from a Maserati four-cam engine that could handle business the same. The height-adjustable suspension and the design of the car were iconic at the time.

To this day the Citroën SM still looks like something that you’d see in a movie scene. The car has everything that you’d expect in terms of luxury. French-built luxury cars don’t usually make their way into the American market and the Citroën SM was the first of its kind. The Citroën SM still looks like the elegant sports car that you’d expect, and it drives just as amazing.

27: Jerry Seinfeld – 1949 Porsche 356/2 Gmünd

Seinfeld is almost as prolific of a car collector as Jay Leno is, and in fact, the two have a bustling friendship. Seinfeld is known to hit most of the elite Porsche auctions around the country. His collection is quite unique, to say the least. The Porsche 356/2 Gmünd had some unique attributes to it, which separates it from the rest of the sports cars from this era. The car was hand-built by a very specific team of individuals. It was not a car designed for the faint at heart.

The 1949 Porsche 356/2 Gmünd is an iconic piece of German engineering, not because of the Porsche label but because of the design. Few cars have managed to captivate the automotive industry quite like the 1949 Porsche 356/2 Gmünd did back in the day. Seinfeld has great taste in cars and the 1949 Porsche 356/2 Gmünd is one such model.

26: Nicole Scherzinger – Bentley GTC

Few female music acts have captivated audiences as much as the Pussycat Dolls did during the band’s heydey. Scherzinger was the lead singer and then she went on to have a popular single career as well. With many duets featuring well-known artists, Scherzinger has made a fair bit of change in her career. The Bentley GTC is a sports car that still offers the creature comforts that you’d expect in a vehicle of this caliber.

With a powerful engine under the hood, the Bentley handles business on the track. In addition to that, the GTC has a fair bit of luxury features that you wouldn’t expect in a car of this caliber. Scherzinger has good taste in vehicles and her choice in the Bentley GTC has been mimicked by many different musicians.

25: Jay Leno’s Classic C-10 Restomod

Leno has probably the most impressive car collection in the country. His car collection went from a personal hobby to a popular TV show and museum. If you’ve had the chance to watch Jay Leno’s Garage, then you know about the C-10. From the lowered suspension to the tuned LS-series motor, the C-10 is far from stock.

But in similar Leno fashion, the C-10 is about as inconspicuous as you can get. The lowly design and factory paint color will fool any onlooker. Once Leno stomps on that throttle, you know this C-10 is anything but your average Chevy.

24: Jerry Seinfeld – Porsche 718

If you watched Seinfeld, you’ll know Jerry had a thing for Saabs. In real life, the comedian leans more toward Porsches. The Porsche 718 is one of his favorites. This was one of the original race car Porches and still runs a decent quarter mile to this day. The 718 that Jerry has is pretty much stock.

The comedian got in trouble for selling a counterfeit Porsche model a few years back. Since then, his team has focused on finding authentic originals. Seinfeld has one of the most impressive Porsche collections in the country. But the 718 is perhaps the model that stands out the most.

23: Tim Allen – 1996 Impala SS

Allen has an excellent car collection. Being from Michigan, his collection pretty much centers around Detroit-made automobiles. The car that has garnered the most attention for him over the years is his 1996 Impala SS. The SS is an iconic car.

The simplistic joy of throwing the SS down straightaway is something that brings a smile to many. Tim Allen has a custom-built Impala SS. There’s nothing factory about this model, down to the ’90s-esque racing wheels. Allen also put a manual transmission into his Impala SS, which was not a factory option.

22: Nicolas Cage – 1968 Mustang

When Nicholas Cage shot the movie “Gone In Sixty Seconds,” the actor already loved cars. But the one that caught his attention the most from the film was the infamous Mustang. The original generation of the Mustang is still one of the most popular cars on the road. Cage likes to keep his things in the original condition.

Thus, most of the cars that are in his collection are bone stock. The 1968 Mustang holds a lot of value in the muscle car community. The classic “Eleanor” from the movie was actually auctioned off last year. If it were not for the Mustang, the Pony car market wouldn’t have been created. The Mustang carved out a segment that buyers weren’t even looking for at that time.

21: Aaron Paul – 1965 Shelby Cobra

Aaron Paul had an evident love for cars when he starred in ‘Breaking Bad.’ The actor was seen driving a custom 1983 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Lowrider. This car becomes an iconic piece of the show, almost as iconic as Walter White’s Pontiac Aztek. But in real life, the actor owns a 1965 Shelby Cobra. The Cobra is perhaps one of the most unorthodox cars on the road.

It’s a roadster, and probably not the car that you want to pick up the kids from soccer practice in. But the Shelby is amazingly fun to drive. A powerful V8 engine is crammed into an exceptionally small and lightweight package. For most drivers, the Shelby is a dream car. Paul was lucky enough to make this dream a reality.

The GM LS crate motor is capable of producing a monstrous amount of power to the wheels. Naturally, Plies has a big set of rims on the car, but even with those, this thing can still move. With Pontiac discontinued a few years ago, any Pontiac model is going to go up in value. The GTO is not only one of the most valuable sports cars on the road but also one of the most iconic.

The 250 GT is lightweight and performs like almost no other Ferrari created. The Ferrari brand still markets some sort of California Spyder to this day, with the 250 GT being one of the original models to bear that moniker. Evans has left most of the car in its factory condition. And unlike most collectors, he drives the thing.

14: Kendall Jenner – Ford Mustang

Even a member of the Kardashians owns a classic Mustang. While Kendall’s isn’t as tricked out as some you might see, the socialite went for a more reserved look. It’s no surprise considering her father Bruce Jenner was known as sort of a gearhead himself. The Jenner Mustang is a classic example of what made the pony car great.

The timeless design has made the Mustang stand out for decades. This Mustang in particular has some aftermarket pieces such as a custom exhaust system. There’s also a custom interior that features many different inserts. Overall, Jenner’s Mustang is another timeless example of the American pony car.
