Professional athletes play hard for a living and often enjoy showing off cool cars. Some of the rarest and most beautiful automobiles are owned by sports professionals. Darren McFadden, Carmelo Anthony and Alexander Ovechkin are athletes who own some of the coolest rides in the world.


Darren McFadden’s 1972 Buick Centurion

Darren McFadden 1972 Buick CenturionDarren McFadden is a running back for the Oakland Raiders. He has invested a great deal of money into customizing a 1972 Buick Centurion. Back in the day, the Centurion was introduced as a luxury vehicle that had a hint of muscle. It contained a 455 big block engine that could reach 0 to 60 mph in 9.4 seconds. The purple paint job on McFadden’s Centurion makes it a spectacle. Besides the color, the vehicle sits on 32-inch Asanti wheels with 335/30/32 Yokohama tires. Each wheel is bright green with a chrome lip. Also, the 15-inch suspension lift sets it apart from the crowd. Inside, McFadden insisted on a custom metal dash and special stereo system. The clean and unique design was built as an improvement over the original version he owned before he became famous.
