Hulk Hogan's 13 Sickest Rides (And 7 He's Probably Jealous Of)

Hulk Hogan is certainly one of the most famous wrestlers of all time. While he’s not the only WWE fighter with an insane car collection, his definitely stands out for its eclectic array of different styles: sports cars, classic rides, muscle cars, and motorcycles—he has it all. Hogan was the face of the WWF (now WWE) from 1984 to 1993, and was the most popular wrestler of the ‘90s. He headlined events all throughout the ‘90s, even as a villain in the New World Order in 1996, as “Hollywood” Hulk Hogan. He even has an extensive acting career, playing the villain in 1982’s Rocky III, and starring in several movies such as No Holds Barred, Suburban Commando, and Mr. Nanny. Finally, he had his own short-lived reality show, Hogan Knows Best, which featured him and his family.

Hogan’s car collection is a bit all over the place, but it says a lot about who he is both in and out of the ring. He loves to go fast, there’s no doubt about that. He also loves a bit of class. And, finally, his uniqueness stands out: check out the paintjobs on some of these cars! With such a personality, it’s no wonder he has such a cool collection.

There are other wrestlers who have some pretty sweet rides, too. Some of them even use them in their WWE stunts, riding to and from the entrance ramps. Some of these rides might even make Hogan a bit jealous, if that’s possible. You be the judge, after seeing what he drives, and then what his competition drives.

Here are 13 crazy cars from Hulk Hogan’s collection, and 7 that he might be jealous of.

20 Dodge Charger SRT-8

Hulk Hogan has been seen driving this sweet, yellow Dodge Charger SRT-8 on multiple occasions by paparazzi, and on his show Hogan Knows Best. The car is called a “Superbee” by Charger aficionados. These cars start new at $51,145, and they can fly on the road. He SRT-8 debuted in 2005 at the New York International Auto Show.

It’s powered by a 425-hp 6.1-liter Hemi V8, and features upgraded Brembo brakes and interior/exterior upgrades.

The 425 SAE net horsepower on the modern 6.1-liter Hemi makes this car even more powerful than the legendary Chrysler Hemi engines of the muscle car era, and make it the most powerful V8 engine Chrysler ever put into production up to that point. It can sprint from 0-60 mph in 4.8 seconds.

19 Chevrolet Tahoe

This is probably Hulk’s most down-to-earth car, as Chevy Tahoe that he uses to go to and from the gym. He was also seen leaving in the Tahoe after his infamous meltdown/rant where he was fired by the WWE over screaming the N-word regarding his daughter’s sex life. He looked calm and collected when he got in the Tahoe, though. And don’t get us wrong, this is still a spiffy car. The 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe costs $47,900, it runs on a 6.2-liter EcoTec3 V8 FlexFuel engine, which produces about 420 horsepower. So as far as SUVs go, this one can definitely kick into gear.

18 Nissan GT-R

The Nissan GT-R is another ridiculously fast, and Nissan is confident that the next generation GT-R will be “the fastest super sports car in the world,” as they told Motor1. The GT-R was introduced in 2007 as Nissan’s high-performance supercar, and a brand new one (2018 model) starts at just under six figures ($99,990).

The car runs on a 3.8-liter VR38DETT twin-turbocharged V6 engine, with plasma transferred wire arc sprayed cylinder bores, which sounds as fast and powerful as it is.

As of 2012, the engines are tuned to output 545 hp, with revised mapping, changes to valve timing, larger inlets, and a revised exhaust system. We know how Hogan likes to go fast, and this baby can reach 196 mph, and reach 0-60 mph in as little as 2.7 seconds using “launch control.”

17 Rolls-Royce Phantom VI

Though Hulk Hogan is known for his motorcycles and sports cars, and going fast, he is not averse to luxury, either. There’s a classic picture circling around of a younger Hulk Hogan in 1980, hovering over his Rolls-Royce in the parking lot of the Olympic Auditorium. When he went through a divorce with wife Linda, he lost over $7.44 million in investments, and $3 million from a property settlement, as well as losing a Mercedes-Benz, a Corvette, a Cadillac Escalade, and a Rolls-Royce (presumably this one). This is most likely a Phantom VI, which was produced from 1968 to 1990. Only 374 were produced, and they used a classic 6.75-liter Rolls-Royce V8 engine.

16 2005 Dodge Ram SRT-10 Yellow Fever

This car was seen quite often on Hogan Knows Best, usually in the background, though he occasionally drove it. The Dodge Ram SRT-10 was the crazy combination super-truck that was produced in limited numbers from 2004 to 2006.

It combined Dodge’s Ram truck chassis with a Dodge Viper V10 8.3-liter engine under the hood, giving it 500 bhp and 525 lb-ft of torque.

Hogan owns one of the 500 “Yellow Fever” limited edition trucks, which was painted Solar Yellow with a “fanged” black stripe on the hood. The truck could actually reach 0-60 mph in just 4.9 seconds, which was unheard of, and it had a top speed of 147 mph.

15 Arlen Ness Double-Wide Glide Custom Chopper

Hulk Hogan loves his choppers, and this is probably the cream of the crop. This is a Double-Wide Glide which was famously built by Ness for Hulk Hogan. It featured a seven-fallon aluminum gas tank, a 93-cubic-inch turbo-charged engine, and a paint job that featured the likeness of Hogan. This bike is considered the king of the choppers by many, and Hogan likes to show it off every once in a while. For instance, he was shown on the front of Hot Bike magazine back in the late ‘80s, sitting on the bike and flexing his bicep, with a tag-line that read “Whatcha gonna do brother?”

14 nWo Hard-Tail Custom Chopper

via powyeah.com

This bike was made by “new world order,” a chopper company that specifically designed this custom for Hulk Hogan, where he has it out on display in Orlando, Florida. It was built by Vinnie “Big Daddy” Bergman in 1997 in Newport Beach, California, and features a 96-inch S&S motor, Carlini drag bars, and more.

These ultra custom choppers are legendary, as is their builder, Vinnie Bergman.

Hulk posed with his bike on Twitter, where he told his fans: “Original nWo bike is not at its new home! Hogan’s Beach Shop! Brother.” He seems pretty proud of letting all his fans see it, which is understandable because it’s such a cool bike.

13 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat

Hulk bought this car just about the same time he bought a Dodge Demon, and he likes to pose with both of them side by side. The Challenger has been out since 1970, but it’s changed many times over the years. First, it started as a pony car, then it became an economic compact car, before reverting back to pony car status. The SRT Hellcat is a 2015 Challenger with a supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi engine, rating at 707 horsepower. It can accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 3.6 seconds, and its top speed is between 199 to 202 mph, making this one heck of a fast car. A 2019 SRT Hellcat starts at $58,650, and his is blood red in color.

12 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

Hogan bought this one at around the same time as his Hellcat, though the Demon is blacked out and he immediately traded in the tires (Nitto NT05r with drag radials), because of unstable weather conditions, and because he wanted to his 203 mph. The Demon is an insane automobile.

It’s a widebody Challenger that debuted in 2017, and uses a 6.2-liter V8 engine with a 2.7-liter supercharger, which puts out 808 hp, though Hogan’s gets 840 hp.

The engine is paired with an 8-speed ZF 8HP semi-automatic transmission. It reaches 0-60 mph in 2.3 seconds, making it the fastest non-electric car to reach 0-60 mph, with an acceleration force of 1.8 G’s. Its top speed is 200 mph, and the car starts at $83,295 for a 2018 version.

11 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air

Hulk Hogan is a man with style when it comes to cars. He likes his classics just as much as he likes his fast rides, and this ’57 Chevy Bel Air is a perfect example. He got this sweet ride as a gift for his 40th birthday, from his ex-wife Terri. In 2009, he listed the car for sale. The Bel Air was introduced in 1950, and discontinued in 1980. The ’57 model is from the second generation, which was definitely one of the classier generations. It used a 265-cubic inch V8 engine, with the option of the 2-speed Powerglide automatic. The two-barrel carburetor engine was rated at 162 hp, while the “Power Pack” option featured a four-barrel carburetor and an upgraded 180-hp engine.

10 1968 Dodge Charger R/T

Boy, Hogan sure likes his Challengers and Chargers, doesn’t he? Not only does he own a modern era SRT Hellcat and SRT Demon, two of the fastest cars out there, and a Charger SRT-8 Superbee, but he also owns this classic 1968 Dodge Charger muscle car.

The first Charger was introduced in 1964, and it's been built on three different platforms and in three different sizes since then.

The ’68 was from the second generation, the first year of the new redesign, and sales skyrocketed for Dodge after its release. Its upgrades included an undivided grille, rounded taillights, and hidden headlights. The powertrain used was a 318-cubic inch, 5.2-liter V8 engine with a three-speed floor shifter.

9 1994 Dodge Viper RT/10

Hulk Hogan’s most popular and famous car is no doubt his 1994 Dodge Viper RT/10, probably because it’s his most outlandish looking. It was featured on the front cover of Dupont Magazine in 2003, complete with its red paint job and yellow inlaid racing stripes. In 1994, the Dodge Viper was the talk of the town, and considered a return to classic muscle cars of old. The RT/10 he owns is a member of the first generation, which contained no air conditioning, no exterior mounted door handles, or key cylinders, because it was developed as a performance car. The engine weighed 700 lbs and generated a maximum power of 400 hp, allowing it to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.2 seconds, with a max speed of 155 mph.

8 2010 Chevrolet Camaro

Hulk Hogan customized this Chevy Camaro with typical Hogan flair: a bumblebee yellow paint job, red racing stripes, a red badge, and red wheels. The dashboard was even signed by Hogan, as he ended up auctioning/raffling it for charity in 2010.

The proceeds for the raffle went to benefit the Unity In The Community, a non-profit organization based out of Plant City, Florida.

The 2010 Chevrolet Camaro got great ratings when it first came out, including a 9.2/10 from KBB, a 9/10 from US News & World Report, and a 4.8/5 from CarMax. It runs on a 6.2-liter V8 engine and produces 426 horsepower.

7 Stone Cold Steve Austin’s Monster Truck

Stone Cold Steve Austin’s Monster Truck is the stuff of legends. The WWE Hall of Famer drove around in this thing and caused mayhem during his heyday, even showing up at his own “funeral” in the monster truck! He also used the truck to destroy The Rock’s car, a brand new, $40,000 Lincoln. People loved it, and they still do. Though Hogan might be best known for his sports cars and classic rides, we don’t doubt that he’d be a little envious of Austin’s gigantic monster truck, if only to show off to his friends and “brothers,” or maybe to run over his ex-wife’s car.

6 The Undertaker’s Custom Harley

The Undertaker’s custom motorcycle seriously looks like something out of Ghost Rider. Since we know that Hulk Hogan likes his bikes (he owns a custom Arlen Ness and a custom nWo), we think he would probably like Undertaker’s, too.

But could he fight him for it? They come from different eras, though the Undertaker is one of the most tenured wrestlers in the WWE.

Undertaker also uses this bike to ride from the end of the ramp to the ring, a distance of about thirty feet, to the glory of screaming fans. His chopper has long front forks, a powerful V-twin engine, and a robust split seat.

5 Bill Goldberg’s 1965 Shelby Cobra

Even though Bill Goldberg’s Shelby Cobra is a replica, it is still one of the coolest looking classic sports cars out there. And because of Hulk Hogan’s love for muscle cars, there’s no doubt he’d love to drive this thing around (if he could fit it in, which he probably couldn’t). Goldberg has an amazing muscle car collection, but this Cobra probably takes the cake. He also owns a ’59 Chevy Biscayne, a ’66 Jaguar XK-E, a ’63 Dodge 330, a ’69 Dodge Charger, a ’67 Shelby GT500, two Plymouth GTXs, a ’70 Plymouth Barracuda, and the list goes on. Heck, this list could be all about him driving around cars that other people are jealous of!

4 The Rock’s Pagani Huayra

via youtube.com

Okay, The Rock might have been one of the most popular wrestlers of his day, but what’s a better way to show how far he’s come than to show people this ride? The Pagani Huayra is a ridiculous supercar worthy of any true fast car aficionado. And we know Hogan likes to go fast.

This car succeeded the Zonda, and has a base price of just under $1 million.

It was named the “Hypercar of the Year 2012” by Top Gear, and was limited to just 100 units per Pagani’s agreement with engine manufacturer Mercedes-AMG. Its twin-turbo 6.0-liter V12 engine puts out 720 bhp, and it has a 0-60 time of 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 238 mph, making it one of the fastest cars on the planet.

3 Dave Batista’s Lamborghini Murcielago

Dave Batista is quite a car connoisseur as well, owning many awesome all-white rides in his luxury collection. One of his coolest is this white-out Lamborghini Murcielago, which is a fast car for big boys. Even though Hogan’s Viper was awesome for the ‘90s (and the Viper is probably my favorite car), there’s no denying that Batista’s classy Lambo with chrome split rims makes his Viper look like child’s play. The Murcielago was produced between 2010 and 2010, as the flagship model of Lamborghini and the first new model under the ownership of Volkswagen. Its base engine was a 6.2-liter V12 that produced 572 horsepower, had a 0-60 sprint time of 3.8 seconds, and a top speed of 206 mph.

2 John Cena's 2007 Saleen Parnelli Jones Limited Edition Ford Mustang

via mecum.com

John Cena has a pretty insane car collection, too. Together, Cena, Goldberg, Hogan, and Batista could make up a list of 50 awesome cars, probably. Cena is a big lover of muscle cars, just like Hogan, and perhaps one of the coolest in his arsenal is this 2007 Saleen Parnelli Jones Limited Edition Ford Mustang.

The car was tested by Motortrend, just when Ford was preparing for the revival of the legendary Boss 302.

Only 500 examples of these Boss Mustangs were produced. It came replete with a 302-cubic inch, 24-valve Ford modular V8 engine, with forged-aluminum pistons and forged-steel connecting rods. Its based off the 1970 SCCA Championship winning Mustang driven by Parnelli Jones.

1 Eddie Guerrero’s Lowrider

Eddie Guerrero’s Lowrider is an infamous car in the wrestling world, as the wrestler would often drive it out of the ramp to rabid fans screaming his name, “Latin Heat!” He was the only wrestler in the WWE to always enter the ring in a lowrider, and he may have had multiple versions. For someone like Hulk Hogan, who loves classic cars almost as much as sports cars (if his ’57 Bel Air and ’68 Charger are any indication), we think he might have felt a twinge of jealousy every time Guerrero came out riding his car. Guerrero was ecstatic when he got to visit LRM and the Lowrider studio, so it shows he’s a true fan of the lifestyle.
