What Kind of Car Does Martha Stewart Drive?
By now you’ve probably heard about or seen Martha Stewart’s new Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover. The 81-year-old model, and BFF of Snoop Dogg, donned a white suit and a yellow shawl for her latest magazine cover. But, did you know that Stewart is also a car aficionado who blogs about her car collection frequently?
What cars does Martha Stewart Have?
Martha Stewart is, not so surprisingly, a fan of big cars that make guests feel comfortable. Of course, she drives a black-on-black Mercedes-Benz EQS 580. She profiles her big all-electric sedan at TheMarthaBlog, where she says “It’s quiet and fast.”
Stewart has a long history of supporting Mercedes-Benz cars. She was at Mercedes-Benz’s #ConcoursedeZoom online car event in 2020. She talked cars with Jay Leno, Ludacris, and other stars. In the online event during the pandemic she praised her GLS550 SUV. It’s hard not to heap praise on an SUV like that, which has a 449-horsepower 4.7-liter V8 and three rows of seating.
How does Martha Stewart maintain her Mercedes-Benz EQS sedan?
She keeps the car at her Winter House, she writes. Apparently, she got her EQS, which has a starting price of $105,550, last year. Since this is Stewart’s blog, she also has tips for keeping the car looking pristine: she (or her assistant) puts towels on the floor to keep footprints off the EQS’s carpets. She also keeps a custom first-aid kit in the glovebox, a pair of comfortable shoes, and plenty of charging cables on hand in the EQS.
Unfortunately (for her), she has a driver who tends to the car. But that doesn’t mean she doesn’t like driving.
Martha Stewart has a manual-transmission Aston Martin
Martha Stewart also has an Aston Martin DB9 that she drives. Stewart’s 18-year-old Aston looks great in dark grey. But, the coolest feature of Stewart’s DB9 is that it has a manual transmission tied to a 5.9-liter V-12 engine. The DB9 went out of production in 2016, but like many things Martha Stewart, the DB9 is a classic that won’t go out of style anytime soon.
Most of us know Aston Martin cars as the cars that James Bond drives. Stewart, like Bond, knows that some cars and some styles will never go out of style. The DB9 is certainly one of the most timeless. Today, these vintage supercars are bargains sell for $40,000 to $90,000, depending on options and condition.
Stewart also goes off-roading in a Polaris Ranger XP 1000
In 2021 Stewart blogged about her farm, and how she uses a Polaris Ranger XP 1000 to get around. In fact, she has three. At Cantitoe Corners, her organic farm, she praises the side-by-side’s versatility. But, this being Stewart, she’s not into roughing it and doing hoonigan jumps or trail slides. A new Polaris Ranger XP 1000 sells for between $12,000 and $22,000, depending on options, which include a hydraulic bed or five seats.
Instead, she sarites, “They can get pretty dirty with all the use they get, but fortunately these vehicles are also easy to clean.” You can find pictures of the 82-horsepower XP 1000s at the farm filled with plants, hauling water, plowing snowy roads, and of course holding an impressive selection of veggies.
