Is Will Smith a Car Guy?
Will Smith has a reported net worth of $350 million. And some would call the Fresh Prince is the epitome of cool. Therefore, it’s unsurprising that his car collection includes a garageful of smooth luxury rides from Rolls-Royce and Mercedes-Maybach. But you probably didn’t you know that Will Smith also likes to lay low in his base Ford Mustang or his Ford Taurus?
Will Smith can afford a garageful of Maybach and Rolls-Royce luxury cars
After a lucrative sitcom career and a rap career, Will Smith became an action hero. Today, he is one of the highest-paid actors in Hollywood. Recently, he even won best actor at the 2022 Oscars. It’s not surprising that Will Smith’s car collection is opulent.
One of Will Smith’s favorite luxury car brands is Rolls-Royce, he has had several throughout his career. He currently owns a Rolls-Royce Ghost: a full-sized sedan with a V12 engine rated for 563 horsepower. A cousin of the Rolls-Royce is Will Smith’s Bentley Azure convertible.
In addition to these British cars, Will Smith enjoys his Mercedes-Maybach 57S sedan. The actor had this car outfitted with bulletproof windows. With customizations and all it probably ran $400,000.
For driving around his wife Jada Pinkett Smith and their family, Will also owns several roomy SUVs: A Cadillac Escalade ESV, Lincoln Navigator, and Mercedes-Benz GL450.
Will Smith has one of the world’s most expensive star trailers
When Will Smith arrives on a movie set, he arrives in style. According to AutoEvolution, the Oscar-winning star sunk $2.5 million into a custom motorhome.
Will Smith’s home away from home is less recreational vehicle and more recreational tractor-trailer. This 22-wheel vehicle is a 55-foot tractor trailer trailer with pop-out sides and a pop-up second story. After it goes full transformer, it offers 1,200 feet of living space.
With the extra sections popped out, the first floor has enough room for a full kitchen and two lounges. Why two? Because one becomes Smith’s wardrobe prep area while in production.
The second floor has a special purpose. When the trailer’s hydraulic pistons literally raise the roof, the space transformer into a 30-seat mini-theater with a 100-inch screen.
Smith nicknamed his star trailer “The Heat.” It has been his home and office while traveling to film movies since the early 2000s.
Sometimes Will Smith likes to lay low
Several of Will Smith’s cars cost a fraction of what his $400k Maybach or $2.5 million RV are worth. Like many stars, he obviously prefers to go incognito some days.
One of Will Smith’s cars signals taste more than wealth: A cherry-red 1965 Mustang. As far as we know, this muscle car is well-kept but not seriously modified. Smith could have purchased this American classic for as little as $25,000, but it is one of the most timeless vehicles he owns.
Another less opulent car in Will Smith’s collection is his Ford Taurus. That’s right, amongst his Cadillacs and Maybachs he has a regular old Ford Taurus. It is a high trim, “high-output” performance-oriented Taurus. But even though it’s fun to drive, it’s not flashy.
Will Smith first drove the same make and model during the Men in Black series. He must have seen the benefit of his own undercover sedan, because after the movie wrapped he bought one.
