Top 10 Celebrities With a Mercedes-Benz

by Nate Torvik on August 17, 2012

Every day people talk about celebrities, athletes, musicians, and movie stars that we, for whatever reason, allow to influence the way that we go about our lives. If there is one thing that bothers me, it is the people that feel like they have some sort of connection with their celebrity “idols”  for no reason other than they are popular. Yes, Snooki from Jersey Shore is totally a great role model. Why wouldn’t you want to be like her?

Well, if there is one aspect of being a celebrity I would not mind emulating, it would be owning a Mercedes-Benz. This is a list of the top 10 celebrities along with their Mercedes-Benz, based not only on their popularity, but also the Mercedes model.

10. Mariah Carey-SLK-Class

Of course this pop diva has a Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class. Why wouldn’t she? She has been one of the biggest stars in the music industry for the past 20 years and is just starting a new life as a mom. If there is anything Mariah wants, Mariah gets, so it’s no surprise that she owns this beautiful Mercedes-Benz model.

9. Gwen Stefani-G-Wagon

The punk rock princess from No Doubt rides around in a G-Wagon. She rose to popularity in the 90s and early 00s and has been riding high, literally, ever since. The G-Wagon is one of those iconic cars that will leave “no doubt” about the celebrity status of this vehicle.

8. Megan Fox-G550

After her mainstream debut as the hottie with a body in the blockbuster movie, Transformers, Megan Fox has fallen a bit off f the map. She has made a few movies here and there, but the former Shia Lebouf love interest in one of the most popular movie franchises has not been able to find her niche. One thing is for certain though: she owns a G-Class, and although men may already faint at the sound of her name, driving this vehicle makes her even more attractive.

7. Sandra Bullock-GL550

As one of the most popular actresses in this era of film, Sandra Bullock is one of those people that everyone seems to like. I would bet that you can’t find one person that has seen The Blind Side and says that she wasn’t fantastic in that movie. She continues to make the right decisions, except that loser ex-husband, Jesse James, driving around in a Mercedes-Benz GL550.

6. Ray Rice-CLS63

The Baltimore Ravens franchise running back, Ray Rice, recently purchased a Mercedes CLS-Class. His new CLS63 is more elusive on the road than he is on the field, but this NFL stud just can’t do anything wrong. He got a new contract this year, which might make way for even more Mercedes.

5. Justin Bieber-Sprinter Van

The teenage heartthrob has a new baby, and it’s not with his girlfriend, Selena Gomez. Bieber owns a tricked out Mercedes-Benz Sprinter that I’m sure he packs all of his teeny-bopper friends into to do whatever 18 year olds do these days. His pop star status puts him on the list, not the van.

4. Ben Affleck-S63 AMG

Ben Affleck is one of the bigger film stars in recent memory, and the actor turned director just keeps the hits coming. With 55 movies under his belt, the The Town director and star owns a Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG. The S-Class is nice enough, but put Affleck in it, and it gets a Boston accent with which you cannot argue.

3. Jay-Z-Sprinter Van

Yes, I did just write that Justin Bieber has a Mercedes Sprinter van, but he is not on the same plane as Jay-Z. His recent purchase, a Sprinter, with his pop diva wife, Beyonce, and his new daughter, Blue Ivy, portrays him as a family man, not a pop mogul. The fact that it cost $1 million? That portrays him as a pop mogul.

2. Tiger Woods-S65 AMG

Regardless of how Tiger Woods ends his career, he will go down as one of the greatest golfers of all time. His personal life aside, Woods has been a picture-perfect example of what the new age golfer needs to be. He has now set the new standard for what a new age golfer needs to drive: a Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG.

1. Kanye West-SLR McLaren

The fact that Mercedes-Benz no longer builds the SLR McLaren makes Kanye West’s elite $500,000 Mercedes all the more impressive. Kanye West is one of the biggest names in the music industry today, especially now that he has collaborated with Jay-Z and has Kim Kardashian on his arm, and he also drives one of the biggest names in the automotive industry.

If there is one thing all of these celebrities have in common, it is good taste in their cars. Mercedes-Benz has always been a symbol of the more elite in society, and celebrities are the elite of the elite.
