David Beckham is one of the world’s best known soccer player. He’s played professionally for 20 years in England, Spain, France, Italy, and the United States, earning the deserved reputation as one of the premier passers and shooters in the world. He’s also happens to be a notable car collector. If you were to take a peek into his collection, you’d find models ranging from high-end Rolls-Royces to vintage Aston Martins. But not all his cars are out of reach for the average consumer. He also owns a few family vehicles (he does have four kids after all). Here’s a look at some of his most intriguing cars.
Porsche 911 Turbo
The 911 Turbo is fitted with blacked-out headlights, special alloy wheels, a sports exhaust, heated seats and an amazing sound system. It also has Beckham’s Los Angeles Galaxy jersey number 23 plastered on the head rests. Its original cost was $100K and he’s invested an additional $50K into the car via upgrades and modifications.
Beckham’s Hummer features super-low-profile wheels with the “VII” logo as well as “VB” embossed on the seats. The original cost of the vehicle was $103K and he’s invested an additional $33K into the car via upgrades, modifications and lavish accessories. He’s a great Hummer fan and once bought his son Brooklyn a scaled down toy version costing $30K for Christmas.
A super cool performance car that reaches 0-60 mph in 5.7 seconds with spectacular interior (soft-grain leather seats, a heated steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate controller and 19-inch Aleutian 10-spoke alloy wheels, LED taillights, panoramic moon roof with power sun blinds, power opening and closing trunk lid, and chrome side power vents) design as well as a smart key system.
The black luxury sedan featured chrome trim when the soccer star initially bought it, but the wheels were soon painted black. According to Auto Loan Daily, Beckham’s S8 featured one of the most powerful engines to make its way under the hood of the brand’s sedans. The 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine produced an inspirational 520 hp. That performance resulted in a 0-60 mph of just 3.9 seconds. For the uninitiated, that’s fast, even by sports car standards.
Beckham’s Camaro SS features a few custom touches: a matte-gray paint job paired with glossy black wheels, tinted windows and lights, and a high-powered V8 engine under the hood. Interesting to note is Beckham’s Camaro SS isn’t entirely built to manufacturer specifications. Platinum Motorsport of Los Angeles had a hand in the creation of this car, but very little details are known as to what modifications specifically Platinum Motorsport is actually responsible for.
Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
Beckham’s Jeep features 22-inch Dub wheels, blacked out rims, a special tube bumper. Surprisingly the cost of this vehicle was only $40K. His custom Wrangler Unlimited rolls on 22-inch wheels with blacked-out rims. A special tube bumper added a touch of style to the off-road SUV.
Rolls-Royce Phantom Drop Head Coupe
One of Beckham’s more exotic vehicles. The handmade British luxury car is completely black, equipped with aftermarket 24-inch black rims. The car features a few other aftermarket adjustments as well like interior modifications.
The car was originally unveiled in 2010 as Bentley’s new flagship car. Beckham is often seen riding in the rear seat of this car with a chauffeur behind the wheel, although the Beckhams usually prefer to drive themselves. But the Mulsanne is the exception to the rule.
Bentley Continental Supersports
The beige Continental GT Supersports strays a bit from David Beckham’s general black paint job. It was a gift his wife bought for him after a hard soccer game which resulted in a loss for Beckham’s team.
Aston Martin V8 Vantage
While most of Beckham’s cars are newer, the soccer star also owns an Aston Martin V8 Vantage. The vintage convertible is likely among the 534 units produced between 1977 and 1989, since it’s painted a deep red. The Aston Martin V8 Vantage was known as “Britain’s First Supercar.” It looks similar to an American muscle car with a powerful engine and sleek styling, making the V8 Vantage a popular collector’s car.
