Wild Vehicles From Netflix’s Tiger King

Netflix’s newest talk-of-the-town series features some exotic animals and some exotic-looking people. While you may get distracted by the cute tiger cubs and the overall ridiculous nature of the show, you may have also noted some pretty cool vehicles along the way.

Kandi Coco

The name Kandi Coco sounds more like it is referring to a model or an expensive perfume, but it is, in fact, a car and that car is – you guessed it – on the show. These small, all-electric cars are no bigger than the size of a Smart Car and can be purchased for less than a thousand dollars. You can see it zipping around Joe Exotic’s GW Zoo

Bentley Continental GT

It wasn’t much of a surprise that one of the nicer cars on the show was owned by Mario Tabraue, a retired drug trafficker turned full-time exotic animal owner.

Polaris Slingshot

John Reinke worked for Joe Exotic as the zoo manager for GW Zoo and his coolest vehicle in the show is definitely his Polaris Slingshot. While it may not be as utility-friendly as some of the four-wheelers but it’s still pretty cool to see zipping around. Considering how much Joe complains about his poor wage at the zoo, it’s not really clear how he affords something that costs more than some new, lower-end cars.

Hummer H2

Jeff Lowe claims he bought his H2 Hummer stolen, but there isn’t much to substantiate the idea. It’s not really that surprising to us that a self-proclaimed multi-million would drive his tigers around in a Hummer. Considering his ostentatious personality it is more surprising that Jeff hadn’t had the appearance of the H2 heavily modified.

Ferrari F430

Another one of Jeff Lowe’s fancy whips is his Ferrari F430 which seems a little bit more his style. We can imagine Jeff driving the Las Vegas strip with his tiger cub riding shotgun in his Ferrari. It is one of the most expensive cars shown on the entire show, which is surprising considering that he is not the only millionaire we meet along the way.

Lincoln Navigator Limousine

The Lincoln Navigator Limousine is Joe Exotic’s go-to vehicle for publicity events. You see the simple Limousine several times throughout the show, from Christmas parades where the limo is pulling a tiger exhibit to Joe’s crazy campaign stunts. Since Joe doesn’t own the limousine and it’s seen being rented by him several times during his campaign, we can assume this is one of the several misuses of money Jeff Lowe claims the Tiger King committed.

Limos line up for Muscular Distrophy Association’s ‘Coor’s Field Lockup to Benefit Muscuar Distoryphy’ fundraiser at Coor’s Field Thursday. 25 of the limos, including three 36-foot Lincoln Navigator 4-wheel drive vehicles made the rounds picking up citizens and bringing them to a ‘jail’ at the ballpark’s restaurant, where they enjoy lunch as they make phone calls to raise funds to be bailed out of the jail.
