If you're like many drivers, you’ve probably dreamt of owning a celebrity car.

But unless you have an unlimited budget, that's just a dream.

Or is it?

Believe it or not, there are several affordable celebrity cars on the market today. So if you're looking for a little bit of glitz and glamour in your life, read on. We'll tell you how some stars really are just like us — and how others drive impressive celebrity cars.

CELEBRITIES WHO DRIVE PICKUP TRUCKS

Christian Bale

While some celebrities spend millions of dollars on luxury cars, stars like Christian Bale are content with an affordable Toyota Tacoma pickup truck. Though it's not as flashy as some of the other vehicles celebrities are known for driving, the Tacoma is a practical and reliable choice that suits Bale's down-to-earth personality.

In an industry where image is everything, it's refreshing to see a celebrity who isn't afraid to be themselves and drive a “normal” car…even if it is a far cry from the Batmobile.

The Rock

If you're looking for an affordable celebrity vehicle, you can't go wrong with the Ford F-150. This pickup truck was famously used by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in the movie San Andreas, and it's since become a popular choice for celebrities who want a workhorse that can also double as a luxury ride.

With its spacious interior and impressive towing capacity, the F-150 is perfect for hauling around family and friends, and its unique style will make you feel like a star wherever you go. So if you're looking to get a taste of celebrity life without breaking the bank, the Ford F-150 is a perfect choice.

Lady Gaga

Like The Rock’s character, even Lady Gaga herself has been seen driving an original 1993 Ford F-150 SVT Lightning. With a net worth of over $150 million, the star (known for her unconventional style) chooses to drive an affordable and relatable vehicle.

CELEBRITIES WHO DRIVE ECO-FRIENDLY VEHICLES

Cameron Diaz, Leonardo DiCaprio & Danny DeVito

Celebrities such as Cameron Diaz, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Danny DeVito have chosen the Toyota Prius as their preferred set of wheels. While other luxury cars may come and go, the Prius remains a popular choice for celebrities who want to make a statement about their commitment to the environment.

And with gas prices remaining relatively high at the moment, the Prius' fuel efficiency is an added bonus for celebrities who are always on the go. Whether you're a Hollywood A-lister or just looking for a fuel-efficient car, the Toyota Prius may be worth considering.

Tom Hanks

Tom Hanks is one of Hollywood's most beloved actors. He's starred in some of the biggest blockbuster hits of all time, including Forrest Gump and Toy Story. However, Hanks has always stayed grounded despite his A-list status, opting for a more modest lifestyle.

He even drives an affordable celebrity vehicle: a Toyota Scion. As more and more celebs are opting for eco-friendly cars, it's refreshing to see that Hanks isn't afraid to ditch the gas guzzler for something a little more affordable and sustainable.

We applaud him — and so many other stars — for setting a good example for other celebrities who may be considering making the switch to a greener ride.

CELEBRITIES WHO DRIVE NORMAL & AFFORDABLE CARS

Jennifer Lawrence

Many celebrities opt for luxury vehicles with a hefty price tag, but Jennifer Lawrence bucks the trend by driving an affordable sedan. The Volkswagen Eos is a practical choice for this A-lister, and it's certainly more affordable than some of the other cars on the market.

Conan O’Brien

Conan O'Brien is another one of many celebrities who also drives a regular, affordable sedan: a Ford Taurus. While some celebrities prefer to flaunt their wealth with luxury cars, Conan's choice of vehicle speaks to his down-to-earth personality.

Julie Bowen, Emma Stone & Bradley Cooper

O’Brien's not the only celebrity with an average car, either. Julie Bowen, Emma Stone, and Bradley Cooper are just a few other celebrities who have been spotted driving affordable sedans. Whether it's for practicality or simply because they prefer a low-key lifestyle, these celebrities prove that you don't need a flashy car to be successful.

CELEBRITIES WHO DRIVE UNIQUE CARS

LeBron James

Some celebrities choose to keep their vehicle affordable, but add a bit of customization. For instance, NBA superstar, LeBron James, chose a customized Jeep Wrangler.

Like many vehicles, custom coloring and additional trims, options, and packages can easily double or even triple the cost of the base model. As is the case with James’ Wrangler, the model itself cost $33,000 and he added an additional $33,000 in upgrades.

Elon Musk

The Tesla founder paid just under $1 million for his vehicle of choice — a 1976 Lotus Esprit. Elon Musk used this car as the inspiration for the newest vehicle in the Tesla lineup: the Cybertruck.

Beyoncé

Stars love their vintage cars and Beyoncé is no different. She added her gifted 1959 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II to the unique collection she and Jay-Z own, which also includes: a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport, Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR, and Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet.

The Rock

When he’s not driving the more relatable Ford F-150, Dwayne Johnson’s garage also includes exotic vehicles. The lineup includes an impressive Pagani Huayra, valued at around $2.4 million.

Ralph Lauren

Perhaps the most expensive — and most uncommon vehicle award — goes to Ralph Lauren. Lauren drives a Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic, valued at $40 million.

This vintage 1930s vehicle is truly unique, as there are only four of its kind in existence. It was also one of the first high-performance sports cars of its kind.
