There is no shortage of action movie stars today. We have everyone from living legends like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis to modern stars like Daniel Craig and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. But among all of them, one star who stands out is Jason Statham. He rose to fame in the Transporter film series, before going on to star in a series of action movies like Crank, Death Race, The Expendables and the Fast and Furious franchise.
In most of his roles, he doesn’t just beat up bad guys and save the day; he also uses a sweet ride to do it. He drove a BMW 735i E38 in the first Transporter movie, a Mini Cooper S in The Italian Job, a Pontiac GTO in The Mechanic, and lots more amazing cars in his other movie roles. We can go as far as saying that he’s become the unofficial James Bond; all he needs to do to seal the role is to order a vodka martini, shaken, not stirred.
It’s not only Statham’s movies where he drives dream cars. His love for beauty, power, and sophistication has carried over to his personal life. He has a garage full of cars most of us can only dream of: foreign machines like Audis and Mercedes; exotic supercars like Ferraris and Lamborghinis; even cars like Jaguars and Aston Martins. Whatever he buys, it’s sure to be something special. So, that’s why we’ve made this list of cars that Jason Statham drives in real life, and the ones he drove in his movies.
20Real Life – Ferrari F12 Berlinetta
Jason Statham’s garage would be dull if it only had cars made in Germany. So, he’s added a little spice with the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. Ferrari built this car to replace the 599 GTB—and to be both a supercar and a hybrid—and they did an excellent job.
According to Evo, the F12 Berlinetta produces a whopping 730 horsepower at 8250 rpm, all from its V12 engine. This results in a top speed of 211 mph and an acceleration of 0 to 60 mph in only 3.1 seconds. This makes the F12 Berlinetta faster than supercars like the Enzo or the 599 GTO.
