Arnold Schwarzenegger, one of our time’s greatest actors, has this week unveiled his new ride, seen driving around in a brand new $265,000 Bentley Continental.
While most 71-year-olds opt for something reliable, comfortable and eco-friendly, Schwarzenegger loves to shock, renowned for his love of fine cars and the lavish lifestyle.
As the pinnacle of luxury transport, the Bentley undeniably grabbed the attention of all, with Arnold proud to flaunt the quarter of a million-pound car around the streets of Los Angeles. Still boasting a buff frame, the star topped off his look with a tight t-shirt and jeans, showing the world that he is still very much the tough guy of the city.
While his surprising physique was commented on online, the car itself obviously stole the show, showcasing black and yellow paint, impressively-large alloy wheels and an engine roar you could hear from blocks away. Smoking a large cigar as he parked the super car, the drop-top proved to be the perfect car for a smoking, muscly super celebrity.
Ditching the SUV
Being incredibly rich, it really is no surprise that Schwarzenegger bought a super car. That said, over the years, the actor has become thought of for his love and promotion of SUVs. With his Terminator character arguably responsible for cars like the Hummer being a consumer favourite, sizable, gas-guzzling vehicles have always been ‘his thing’. But, last year, he put his stamp of approval on an all-electric SUV, heavily involved in the customisation of a Mercedes-Benz G-Class into an electric motor.
“This amazing off-road vehicle as a clean and fast electric car? A dream has become real!” said Schwarzenegger.
The star has also been known to convert a Hummer H1, allowing it to run on vegetable oil alone!
