Football players earn high salaries that allow them to invest in extravagant mansions and purchase luxury vehicles. Even though some athletes may fumble during games, certain players roll off the field in style. Here are three of the coolest automobiles owned by NFL all-stars.
Thomas Jones’ 2004 Rolls-Royce Phantom
Running back Thomas Jones has a vast car collection. One of his coolest rides includes a 2004 Rolls-Royce Phantom. This car is a definite head turner, especially with its custom paint and 24-inch wheels. Inside, the car is packed with luxury as well. Its white leather seats are equipped with televisions and phones. Under the hood, the car is built to race. The V12, 2 Bosche engine with Motronic MED 7 control system provides 453 horsepower. It is estimated to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds. Despite the technology and power, Jones claims he does not care about the mechanics. He views the car as a moving work of art.
JaMarcus Russell’s 2008 Bentley Flying Spur
JaMarcus Russell’s NFL career was short, but he had enough time to show off his 2008 Bentley Flying Spur on 22-inch Forgiato Otto wheels. Thanks to its twin turbo W12 engine, this beauty packs 552 horsepower.
Every Flying Spur is made to order by the coachbuilders H.J. Mulliner & Co. on a Bentley Continental chassis. Each car boasts an impressive exterior and follow through with impeccable interior performance.
Reggie Bush’s 1967 Shelby Mustang GT500
Reggie Bush is an avid car collector. Besides his love of football, he enjoys restoring old muscle cars. One of his flashiest vehicles included a 1967 Shelby Mustang GT500. The model was made famous in Nicolas Cage’s movie “Gone in Sixty Seconds.” Although he recently sold this vehicle, he is constantly looking for new projects to add to his collection.
One lucky buyer had the chance to purchase Bush’s retired car, which features a 7-liter V8 engine, Hurst shifter, and tank of NOS with a go-go ignition start. The exterior is equally as appealing with its gray and black stripes.
The NFL is filled with great players who own amazing cars. These vehicles are true touchdowns in the auto industry.
