Robert Downey Jr.’s Car Collection Is Iron Man Approved
The Iron Man actor Robert Downey Jr. loves his cars. From classic American muscle cars to British grand tourers, and Tony Stark’s favorite Audis, Downey has quite a collection. Here are some of Robert Downey Jr.’s coolest rides:
- 2009 Audi R8
- Bentley Continental GT
- 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible
- 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302
Iron Man would approve of Robert Downey Jr.’s Audi R8
Who better to cruise around in Audi’s flagship supercar than Tony Stark himself? When Audi released the car for the 2007 model year, the car seemed hit or miss. Many supercar fans loved the low-slung, high-revving Audi. Conversely, some critics didn’t care for the radical styling or led daytime running lights.
Downey clearly fell in love with the car. After his long-term Hollywood love affair with the many variations of the R8 over the years, it only makes sense that he would have one in his car collection.
The Bentley Continental GT is a big, heavy, mile-eating monster with top-tier luxury credentials
The Bentley Continental GT is a testament to excess. It is excessively heavy, weighing around 5,000 lbs, and excessively powerful, with eight and twelve-cylinder engine options. Although what it does the best is bridge the gap between British refinement and grand tourer performance. Downey’s Continental GT packs a 4.0L turbocharged V8 engine producing 500 horsepower. No doubt that Downey loves his Bentley land-yacht.
Robert Downey Jr. also has a timeless and effortlessly gorgeous 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray convertible
The 1967 Chevrolet Corvette is a top-tier classic car coveted by American muscle aficionados all over the world. Downey’s black convertible Stingray is certainly the embodiment of why collectors want the car so badly. Also, GQ says that Downey drives his Corvette Stingray regularly. That’s wonderful to hear because a historic gem like this deserves to continue cruising.
SpeedKore built a restomod 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302
The 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302 is a sought-after part of the golden age of muscle cars. In Downey’s case, the Boss 302 was lovingly assembled by the wizards at SpeedKore. In addition to the clout of the muscle car, Downey’s Boss 302 features carbon fiber paneling and an updated interior. Also, the old Mustang sits low on a wide set of HRG wheels. According to GQ, Downey’s Mustang won Best-In-Show for restored muscle cars at the 2017 SEMA auto show.
1974 BMW 3.0 CS is a modified jewel in Downey’s already impressive car collection
The 1974 BMW 3.0 CS is a collector’s dream machine and a more recent addition to the Downey stable. In addition to the beauty of the stock car, Downey chose to modify the BMW. In his typical fashion, he had the car modified to handle and accelerate more like a modern sports car. His BMW 3.0 CS and Ford Mustang Boss 302 are a testament to Robert Downey Jr.’s affinity for classic cars.
