What is one thing that hits your mind when you think of celebrities? Is it that they are perfect in everything? Well, if that is true you are not alone. There is a non-ending number of folks who fantasize about celebrities. They assume (wrongly) that celebrities own the perfect stuff. Think about cars.
When we think of celebrities and their automobiles, we assume that they have the perfect set of cars in their garage. We fantasize that Hollywood stars like Leonardo DiCaprio and others have a lavish collection of automobiles in their garage. Well, it turns out that this is not always true. Actually, there is a long list of celebrities who own ‘abnormal’ and uncommon automobiles sitting in their garage.
Looking at these celebrity cars, you can not help but wonder what has made them retain these cars. Below are some celebrities who own cars that are not “so great.” When we say not so great, we mean that are not lavish cars with luxury features.
Now, let’s go ahead and see which Hollywood star owns “not so great” cars:
Toyota Prius - Leonardo DiCaprio
Leonardo DiCaprio is by and far the most famous Hollywood star of our time. The Hollywood hall of fame has starred in blockbuster movies like “The Aviator,” “The Wolf of Wall Street,” “The Revenant” and much more. Each of these movies has turned out to be a blockbuster. In turn, these have added to the worldwide fame of the Oscar-winning actor.
However, the “Titanic” crème de la crème owns an outdated hybrid car that was manufactured by Toyota back in 1997. Essentially, Toyota Prius is an old hybrid car of Toyota car that was once popular in the early days of its launch back in 1997. But today, the car is very rare as new models of Toyota have already outclassed it.
Despite that, Leonardo DiCaprio still “proudly” drives this archaic Toyota hybrid car. Thus, this makes car enthusiasts wonder why the Hollywood star still has this old Toyota model parked in his garage.
Hummer H1 - Dennis Rodman
Dennis Rodman is another celebrity star who has amassed a massive fan base for his athletic skills as a legendary basketball player of his time. The athlete, going against all odds, proudly drives an old Hummer 1.
Since the Los Angeles Lakers' leading player is known for his opulent lifestyle, having this old SUV in his car collection is weird. At least for car enthusiasts. Meaning, car enthusiasts do not expect Dennis Rodman to have this old SUV of AM General parked in his garage.
Apart from the high maintenance cost, there is nothing great about Hummer 1. Since it is an old military-inspired automobile, the car lacks in so many features. And fairly so, Hummer 1 can not be called a luxury car. Therefore, it is very unlikely of Dennis Rodman - a former legendary basketball player - to retain this old model automobile.
