Many movies are associated with the name of Jason Statham. And in all he cuts across the screen in cool cars, which he manages so masterly that it is just right to participate in Formula 1. What about real life? What kind of cars does this brutal actor like? Today we will talk about some of them.
Audi is the actor’s favorite car brand, which is surprising, because the British are «supposed» to treat their own car industry with reverence. However, Statham, as it turned out, although he has one Jaguar in his garage, still loves Audi. Behind the wheel of the S8, he is the most frequently encountered. Under the hood of this beauty, a four-liter engine for 570 horses is installed, which accelerates the car to a hundred in just 3.9 seconds.
The Audi R8 Convertible Coupe is another favorite of the actor. It has a 5.2-liter 540 horsepower engine under the hood. Acceleration from zero to hundreds — in 3.4 s. Statham received this car as a gift after playing a great role in the movie «The Transporter».
As you can see, the actor loves high-speed cars. True, not everyone can use it in full force — due to speed restrictions. But, apparently, the very presence under the hood of a powerful engine warms his soul.
Having starred in The Fast and the Furious, Statham literally fell ill with a McLaren 720S and soon acquired it. This car is a purebred supercar. Even Statham’s beloved Audi does not provide such dynamics — what is the acceleration to a hundred in just 2.9 seconds and a maximum speed of 341 km / h. And the engine under the hood of McLaren is much more powerful — as much as 720 horsepower, V8, turbocharged.
Statham’s no less favorite car — of course, after Audi. It was once the fastest in Ferrari’s sports car lineup. But at the time when the actor acquired it, the status had already been lost.
Nevertheless, the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta was still one of the most powerful cars in Statham’s garage. Under its hood is a 12-cylinder engine with 730 horsepower and a volume of 6.2 liters. The top speed is just 1 km / h slower than the McLaren 720S.
Yes, there are two expensive cars from Italians in the actor’s garage. Lamborghini Murcielago is a two-seater coupe produced in 2001-2010. The LP-640 version was shown at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show. Under the hood is a 6.5-liter 12-cylinder V-engine with 640 horses. Acceleration to hundreds — 3.4 s. The maximum speed is 340 km / h.
The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is perhaps the fastest car in the actor’s collection. Its maximum speed is over 350 km / h. A 770 horsepower engine is installed under the hood. The car accelerates to 100 km / h in 2.8 seconds.
Well, and as a true Briton, Statham could not ignore Jaguar cars. There is one in his collection — XJR. It cannot be said that this is the actor’s favorite car — he has not been seen driving a Jaguar for a long time. It is even possible that this car is no longer in his garage.
Under the hood, the Jaguar XJR has an 8-cylinder V-twin 5-liter engine producing 543 horsepower. Acceleration from zero to hundred — 4.2 s. By the way, the actor does not particularly experiment with colors, preferring light ones, in particular silver, or classic black. Well, what — an excellent choice for a brutal man.
Jason Statham’s car fleet is not that big, but there is not a single mediocre car in it. Each car is good in its own way. Well, what unites them is the power of the motors and just incredible speed. Not everyone dares to drive a 770-horsepower car, but the British actor can handle it all.
