Actor Johnny Depp’s deeply troubled personal life is once again grabbing headlines thanks to his second major lawsuit involving ex-wife Amber Heard.
Back in the good old days, the news about Johnny Depp had more to do with his film-acting career and incredible lifestyle than domestic problems.
So in remembrance of those happier times, when Johnny was the king of the silver screen, we’ve decided to take a look at his dazzling car collection.
Depp is a global superstar movie actor known for his role as Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirate of the Caribbean movie series as well as a number of other quirky and notable roles.
He’s also known for his wealthy lifestyle, which has included owning multiple homes, a French village, a yacht, and even an island in the Caribbean.
He’s not only an actor but a producer, a painter, and a serviceable musician. Depp’s personal possessions have included a luxury yacht, an island, a village, a private jet, and some very expensive properties such as a penthouse in a historic building.
But did you know he’s also a world-class car lover who has a number of incredible luxury cars in his collection?
So let’s get right to it. Let’s take a look at Johnny Depp’s auto collection.
His personal garage is said to include more than 45 luxury cars. Here’s a glimpse at just a few:
Estimated value $330,000. The Rolls-Royce Wraith brings sporty luxury and speed to Depp’s car collection. The Wraith is actually derived from the Rolls-Royce Ghost but is a bit sportier and sexier. The luxury couple is sure to indulge Johnny’s need for speed without sacrificing any love of the regal opulence that is the very essence of Rolls-Royce. While the Wraith coupe is still a Rolls classic it has its own distinct and sportier personality, including a 2-door frame. The 6.6L twin-turbo V12 engine churns out 624 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque. It can take you from zero to 60 in an impressive 4.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 155 mph.
Porsche 911 Carrera S
Estimated value $40,000. As with other cars from Porsche adding an S to the name denotes more a more powerful version. Usually in the form of turbocharger boost pressure. The Porsche 911 Carrera is an iconic symbol of automotive passion and desire. Its classic 911 shape, rear-mounted flat-six engine, and circular headlights make it instantly recognizable around the world. Dropping into the driver’s seat Johnny has everything Porsche at his fingertips – precision, power, and fun. Starting it up, you instantly recognize the sound of the 911 Carrera’s twin-turbo 3.0-liter flat-six-cylinder engine and the feeling of that quick-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission, now with a seven-speed manual offered on S models.
Every 911 has amazing acceleration, and Porsche’s optional sports exhaust system enhances that experience by providing an even fuller engine note. All models have rear-wheel drive but they can be equipped with all-wheel drive. Comfort reigns supreme with a smooth and supple ride and highly communicative steering, increased cornering grip, and stability in the coupe and convertible models. You can Depp-end on it!
Land Rover Range Rover
Estimated value $80,500. The Land Rover Range Rover – aka the Range Rover – is a 4×4 car produced by Land Rover, a marque (and sub-brand) of Jaguar Land Rover. The Range Rover line was launched in 1970 and is now in its fifth generation. It’s the original SUV and meant for all sorts of rugged terrain. (Perhaps Johnny uses one when driving around on his island or his French estate). We’re not sure which model the actor favors but you can choose from several under the Range Rover name, including the Range Rover Sport, Range Rover Evoque, and Range Rover Velar.
Ferrari 488 Spyder
Estimated value $301,000. This shows the real car lover in Depp. The Ferrari 488 (Type F142M) is a class – if not the classic mid-engine sports car produced by the Italian automaker. The car replaced the 458, being the first mid-engine Ferrari to use a turbocharged V8 since the F40. It was succeeded by the Ferrari F8. This car is powered by a 3.9-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine, smaller in displacement but generating a higher power output than the 458’s naturally aspirated engine. The 488 GTB was named “The Supercar of the Year” by Top Gear, as well as becoming Motor Trend’s “Best Driver’s Car.” Depp is sure to love this classic Ferrari for a drive around the French countryside or a long trip up the California coast.
BMW 7 Series
Estimated value $100,000. BMW has created some of the most reliable and performance-driven vehicles in history. And the bonnet boasts an impressive engine that is the stuff of dreams. The BMW 7 series car can get Mr. Depp to a max speed of 155 mph and takes 5.4 seconds to get you from zero to 60 mph. It’s a dependable yet sexy vehicle for cruising down Rodeo Drive.
Estimated value $390,000. When it comes to sports cars, Lamborghini makes the cream of the crop. The Italian automaker’s Aventador carries an impressive 6.5-liter V12 engine that churns out 690 horsepower and can reach a searing top speed of 217 mph and get you from zero to 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds. It’s the perfect car for living in the Hollywood fast lane.
