One of the most iconic cars in lady Gaga’s car collection has got to be a 1965 drop top Lincoln Continental dressed out in eggshell white with burgundy leather interior, oversized spoked rims, rubberband tires, and a matching off-white top. Thankfully Stef is anything but camera shy and isn’t bothered by the paparazzi in the least because with a car like this she would draw attention even if no one knew her name.
If you love classics and muscle cars as much as Lady Gaga then you have got to have at least one Chevrolet El Camino in your garage. Proving that she never does anything halfway, she had this one modified by shaving the door handles and all badging off, installing remote door releases, adding oversized rims and tires, then having it painted in a smooth black finish. What’s under the hood is unknown, but given the lady is a certified speed freak its safe to say it has muscle.
Further proof that Lady Gaga truly knows her cars is this classic 1967 Mustang convertible dressed out in ivy green and with rally rims fitting for the period when the vehicle was originally built. This classic car is as classy as the lady herself, but she might want to lay off the Mustang Sally routine a bit as it is purported that she has received several speeding tickets while behind its wheel. Then again, with over 150 million records sold, she can afford to pay the fines.
It is a little known factoid that when Lady Gaga hit it big and started collecting cars, she still didn’t have a drivers license. As can be imagined, this was not a good situation, so she went out and bought a Mercedes-Benz E350 just to learn to drive. According to reports she had hers special ordered with every luxury feature that the company offered and her E350 comes closer to being a compact limousine than a sports sedan.
Though she is a huge star, Lady Gaga is not exactly a big person standing only 5’1” tall and weighing only 117 lbs. Despite this fact, Mother Monster still prefers to drive her Rolls-Royce Phantoms herself; even though she has to look through the steering wheel to see the road. It must not bother her too much though since after acquiring her black Phantom, she went back and bought a white one for those times when a plain Rolls just isn’t elegant enough.
In Maya mythology, Huracán is the God of wind, storm, and fire, so it kind of makes sense that the Goddess of the stage should have at least one at her beck and call. In truth, Sucra loves the car so much that when she performed for The Super Bowl Halftime Show in Houston, Texas, she made the long drive from her Malibu home to the stadium in it. That is a 1600 mile trip, and she supposedly made it without getting a single ticket along the way.
Not everything in the diminutive Lady Gaga’s life has to be larger than life, and she has shown she can appreciate cars that are even more in tune with her physical size. A case in point is the Porsche Boxster that she is occasionally seen driving around in. It definitely isn’t the largest, most expensive or fastest horse in her stable but for pure driving pleasure, the little housewives sports car brings an awful lot to the table.
More evidence that Loopy is not only a fan of classic muscle cars but a true aficionado of the subject is the mint blue Chevy Nova Super Sport that she often seen running around Los Angeles in. Thought to have been a full frame off restoration the car is known to have matching numbers and be completely original. This isn’t the kind of car that your average pop diva would pick; it takes a real car lover to appreciate this ride.
You have to be a real hardcore car person to understand why Lady Gaga would have 30 plus-year-old Mercedes sedan in her collection. The W123 was the car that cemented the company’s reputation for not only building a nice car but one that would last until the cows came home and were turned into hamburger. It is not unusual to find one that has over 300,000 miles on the odometer without ever having a major repair needed.
The more we learn about Lady Gaga’s car collection, the more impressed we become with her depth of knowledge about cars. The Ford Bronco was created to meet the demand for a small civilian off-road vehicle and to compete with the Jeep CJ-5 and International Harvester Scout. These were unusual vehicles in that the rear chunk set dead center of the vehicle with no offset improving its balance on rough terrain and that there were no two-wheel drive variants offered.
If you look at how Lady Gaga’s music has morphed through the years, you can understand why she would fall for the Audi R8. Just like her, there is more to the car than meets the eye. While most motorheads are familiar with the R8’s Quattro all-wheel drive, most people don’t realize that its drivetrain is shared by the Lamborghini Gallardo and Huracán while being a much more comfortable car to drive than either of them.
If you haven’t figured out by this point that lady Gaga is not your average pop diva, then this ride should seal the deal. Seriously, can you imagine J-Lo or Beyoncé driving a pick-up truck; ain’t gonna happen in this lifetime. Loopy’s F-150 Lightning Edition is one of the high-performance models designed by Ford’s Special Vehicle Team and has a 5.4 L Triton V8 putting out 380 BHP and can go 0-60 in 5.8 seconds.
There is an interesting story behind the midnight black Trans Am that sits in Lady Gaga’s garage. It is the same car that appeared in her “Marry the Night” night video with all the dancing flames and shadows. At the time of the shooting, the car was a daily lease, but after spending several days crawling over the car, and driving it from her trailer to the set, she decided she had to have it as a personal driver and simply made the leasing company an offer they couldn’t refuse.
That is all the vehicles that we know proof positive belong to Lady Gaga, but it isn’t all the cars she has tried to own. As proof that even the rich and famous can’t always get what the want here are a few that got away from her; The P-Wagon from the Kill Bill movie. Elvis Presley's white on pink Cadillac Coupe De Ville hardtop, the black Pontiac GTO convertible from one of her videos, one of Mario Andretti’s two-seat race cars.
