Often seen driving killer cars in movies, what does this action star drive in real life?
Action movies and cool cars go together like peanut butter and jelly. So naturally, a lot of celebrities who are typecast action heroes tend to appreciate these cars in their own life. Action actor Jason Statham is no exception! Statham was a member of Britain’s National Diving Squad, and ranked 12th in the world in 1992, before he was known for acting. Check out his car collection below.

A Set of Audi R8s
I can name the celebrities I know of who don't have R8s, and it would be quicker than listing off the ones who do - and it makes sense, they're great cars. Jason Statham has two of them in his car collection, one in black and the other white. The Audi R8 is powered by a 430-horsepower V8 that can move the car to 60 mph in 4-seconds.
A favorite of those with timeless taste and desire to exceed the speed limit, the Jaguar E-Type is a classy automobile. It's unclear whether or not Statham actually owns this car, reports are conflicting, but he did arrive to the premier of his movie, The Mechanic, in it, so we'll take it.
Lamborghini Murcielago LP
The Lamborghini Murcielago LP Jason Statham drove in The Transporter must have left an impression on him, because he has an orange one in real life. Obviously, this is one of the fastest cars in the star's collection. This Lambo will hit 60 mph in 3.4-seconds, and is one of only 4,000 built during the ten year production run.
Porsche 911 GT2
Statham has been spotted in this Porsche numerous times since 2009. Porsche poured a lot into the 911 GT2. This model can sprint from 0-60 mph in 3.7-second, with a top speed of 204 mph.
Aston Martin DBS
This Aston Martin DBS makes us want a James Bond movie staring Jason Statham. The beautiful retractable roof Aston Martin is powered by a 510-horsepower 6.0-liter V12 engine.
Statham has this seriously powerful Jaguar XJR. Powering the Jag is a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 that puts 543-horsepower and 503 lbs-ft of torque.
Noticeably missing from the actions star's collection is American influence. We think Statham should get a vintage truck, or a nice muscle car. Maybe he'd even feel more at home in the new C8? But we're not ones to tell people how to spend their money, especially people who could definitely beat us up.
