5 British Celebrities and the Elegant Cars they Drive

How do celebrities live? What are their favorite cuisines? How do they spend leisure time? Which celeb is currently hooked up with whom? To get the answers, you buy latest issues of fashion and lifestyle magazines.

But the magazines hardly cover a celebrity’s choice of gadgets and cars. Due to this, tech-freaks rarely stand on the corner of a street and flip through their pages. For the same reason, car freaks don't buy the magazines either.

But just because the magazines are silent, doesn't mean celebs don't have any preference for fancy cars and gadgets. I will discuss their predilections for cars in this article.

David Beckham's cars

You are bound to appreciate his choice in cars. Some of the cars that occupy his garage space are Porsche Turbo, Chevy Camaro, Rolls Royce Ghost, Jeep Wrangler, Cadillac Escalade and Bentley Mulsanne. The price doesn't attract him; a car's make, model, mileage, and chassis are head-turners for him.

Don't believe me? Okay, let me take you through the fact-sheet.

#Fact 1: Beckham owns a Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe, which is one of the most expensive cars in the world. In the UK, the car costs more than a quarter million pounds. The car is gorgeous; its design resembles that of a vintage model. The car is so amazing that The Telegraph rated it 8 out of 10. The quarter million price tag, therefore, is justified.

#Fact 2: The Jeep Wrangler that Beckham drives comes at a throwaway price of £25000. It's monstrous in size but not that attractive. But that doesn't keep Beckham away from it. The fact that he enjoys handling this beast proves he doesn't discriminate.

Britney Spears's cars

This incredibly beautiful pop singer may have a colorful life, but her choice of cars mostly revolves around black and white. Britney's Mercedes-Benz G55, BMW 328i and Jaguar XK, are all white or off-white colored. But her Maserati Granturismo and Mercedes-Benz CLK are black colored.

It's 2015, and Britney's collection includes many new models. One thing can be observed in her selection of cars; she's on the affordable side of the spectrum. Her Mercedes SLK350 costs £35800. The speed of the car reaches 60 kilometers an hour from 0 kilometers an hour in less than six seconds.

The Mini Cooper S Convertible that she drives comes at a wallet-friendly price of £18144. Britney didn't keep it in her garage to turn it into a piece of junk. She drove the car on several occasions and even posed for the paparazzis.

Daniel Radcliffe's cars

Radcliffe got access to his million pounds fortune when he turned eighteen in 2007. His fans, as well as, non-fans were guessing how he'd spend the truckload of money that was waiting for him since the day he signed for the first Harry Potter movie.

He tricked everyone when he purchased a Fiat Grande Punto 2007 because everyone was expecting him to buy a Porsche or a Lamborghini. Did he make the right choice? Yes, he did. The car was praised by environmentalists and auto experts alike as it was affordable and offered an eco-friendly ride.

Its carbon-dioxide emission rate was 138 grams a kilometer, and its top speed clocked at 96 miles per hour. The only thing that was not-so-great about the car was its acceleration. It took almost 15 seconds for the car to reach 60 mph. In his 2013 movie "Horns," Radcliffe was seen driving a 1972 AMC Gremlin. Surprisingly, it didn't create a stir among his Twitter fans because of his preference for inexpensive cars.

Kelly Brook

She is one of the most searched British celebs on Google. Brook seems to have a preference for Mercedes cars. She was spotted in a filling station pumping fuel in her Mercedes-Benz CLA 250. She also owns a Mercedes-Benz SL550. In the past, when she wasn't that fond of Mercedes-Benz, she happened to drive a Range Rover Sport. Brook is not only passionate but possessive about her cars too as she told journalists that she never lets her fiance David McIntosh drive.

Prince William

Because monarchy is long dead, I am not giving him a princely treatment. I am rather giving him a mention at the end. Hope the royal family won't mind. Anyways, Prince William is a car lover; his collection includes Jaguar XJ, Audi A8, Bentley Flying Spur, Range Rover and more.

He added a bulletproof Bentley to his pool of cars in 2013. The car's cost was £250000. With WiFi connection enabled, and with a metal and armor suit, the car was state-of-the-art.

Not necessarily expensive

You may not be a celeb, but if you can afford a car that they drive, go for it. One more thing to consider is an excellent car doesn't necessarily imply an expensive car. A sneak peek into the UK's car registration office can help you list down vehicles that offer an excellent riding experience, emit less carbon-dioxide and are affordable.
