The Top 10 Racecar Driving Celebrities of All Time

  It is often said that if you want to make a small fortune in motorsports, start with a large fortune. Superstar athletes and A-list entertainers tend to have large fortunes, and over the years dozens have spent portions of those fortunes on racing endeavors. Some have even been the proverbial nuts behind the wheel.   Unfortunately, most of the celebrities-turned-racing-drivers over the years have split their time between being rolling chicanes and crash test dummies. And often, they left the sport almost as soon as they entered, chasing the next hobby that tickled their fancy. But a few stars have jumped into the racing world with both feet, exhibiting the powerful one-two punch of unflappable commitment and talent comparable to that of many pros. So here, in no particular order, are 10 of the most impressive celebrities ever to strap on a helmet and take a green flag.

Internet Gem of the Week: Pamela Anderson’s 2007 Range Rover Supercharged

Even though there are many (some, like us, might argue far too many) Americans who are obsessed with celebrities and every infinitesimal thing they do, we doubt there are many folks who wonder “What do celebrities do with their cars when they’re done with them?” The answer, of course, is that they usually sell them, be it to a dealer, friend, relative, agent, publicist or some other member or their inner circle. Sometimes, though, star cars and trucks escape to the real world, and sometimes they show up on eBay. But we can’t remember the last time a star was selling a vehicle on the perennially popular auction website himself or herself. Leave it to one Pamela Anderson (no relation) to be the exception to the rule.

The world’s favorite chesty Canuck is looking to unload her 2007 Land Rover Range Rover Supercharged. This white-on-cream SUV is mostly stock, with a supercharged 4.2L V8 (borrowed from corporate sibling Jaguar) under the bonnet and belting out 400hp to a 6-speed automatic transmission and super sophisticated four-wheel-drive system. It won’t win any stoplight grands prix with the likes of a Cayenne Turbo S or Grand Cherokee SRT8, but it’s more than capable of getting out of its own way. Plus it will get over damn near any terrain short of molten lava.

The Top 20 Car & Actor Pairings from TV and Movies

It goes without saying that movies and TV shows can’t happen without the involvement of people, particularly actors and actresses. After all, without the on-camera talent, production crews would just be shooting landscapes.

But many times, thespians are matched up with props to help tell the story and yes, props can include automobiles. Yet in some magnificent, unforgettable instances, cars manage to transcend their status as mere props and, together with the human star or stars that use them, become icons. Here are 20 such actor and machine dream teams.
