Priyanka Chopra is among the best actresses in the world, and the one with the biggest pay cheque in Bollywood. In her acting journey, the Indian born star has taken home a good number of awards including the miss world 2000 pageant. Other than staring in many Hindi movies like Pier Impossible, Priyanka Chopra has also starred in numerous Hollywood films including the ABC’s TV series, Quantico.
The Indian government honored Priyanka Chopra with the Padma Shri award in 2016, which is the fourth highest civilian award in the country. The times magazine listed her among the top 100 most influential people in the entire universe. In 2017, Forbes listed her among the top 100 most powerful women in the world.
Nick Jonas, on the other hand, is an American singer and songwriter, and actor who featured in Dwayne Johnson’s blockbuster film Jumanji as Alex Vreek. Nick was one of the three-member Pop Band, the Jonas Brothers that he formed in 2005 with his two elder brothers.
These two (Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas) are the latest Hollywood / Bollywood lovebirds, and the talk of every minute. Rumor has it that the two are about to call things official after reportedly holding an all-Indian attire engagement ceremony in Mumbai on Saturday. Well, a story for another day.
While everybody is mouth agape about their love affairs, here we’re mostly interested in their rides. And coincidentally, these two high profile celebrities have really cool car collections. The Indian star Priyanka Chopra owns a pretty enviable collection of rides, among them is a customized Rolls Royce Ghost. Nick Jonas also has a very classic collection of well-maintained vintage cars and a few high-performance sports cars.
Let’s enter into their garages and see what they really have.
15 Nick: 1968 Ford Mustang
I said it. He loves old. Here is another American classic and an iconic selection in his expensive garage, the 1968 Ford Mustang. This vintage car is the most readily noticeable, and the most famous car in the United States and the world at large. This Mustang has been featured in many Hollywood films, and that makes it more famous.
The 1968 model was the first Mustang to receive the massive v8 engines that Ford offered in eight different versions. The smallest engine churns out 290 horsepower while the largest produces 360. The ’68 Mustang is easily recognizable because of its classy design that gives it a classy shape, and an outstanding tail section.
14 Priyanka: Bright pink Harley Davidson
Apart from exotic vehicles, Priyanka Chopra also has Harley Davidson motorcycle painted in bright pink. She acquired the two-wheeler in February 2014 and shared a photo of her on the bike on social media. That was just a short while after adding the Rolls Royce Ghost to her garage.
On her social media, she captioned on the photo, "For all those asking. Here's a sneak peak. Pink for chick power. Why should boys have all the fun?"
Priyanka Chopra has always wanted to have a personal ride in every city that she spends some reasonable time, like the Rolls Royce for Mumbai, Audi Q7 for Los Angeles, she must have gotten tired with the traffic in Mumbai, and looking for quicker routes, she found this blazing hot pink Harley Davidson bike.
13 Priyanka: Rolls Royce Ghost
Priyanka is the first Bollywood actor to own a customized Rolls Royce Ghost; my guess is that she paid dearly for it. The star spends most of her time in Hollywood, but the Ghost is her favorite ride whenever she's in Mumbai.
She’s been seen many times rolling on this expensive ride whenever she’s attending high profile events in her mother country of India.
The Rolls Royce Ghost is powered by a 6.6L twin turbo v12 engine that cranks out 563 horsepower, with an 8-speed transmission system. It can accelerate from 0-60mph in 4.7 seconds from a standstill position. Chopra’s Rolls Royce is the cheapest in the market.
12 Nick: Chevrolet Camaro
The first modern muscle car in Jonas’ exotic garage, the 5th generation Chevy Camaro SS. This is an ordinary car to Nick Jonas that he has been spotted with on several events. The white and black on the bumper SS is an upgraded version (higher powered) of the Chevrolet Camaro muscle car that is pushed forward by a 5.9L turbo v8 engine that produces a maximum power of 425 horsepower and 570Nm.
While a gutsy engine and a muscular sheet metal are essential ingredients in any muscle car, the Chevrolet Camaro SS convertible comes with an added advantage of excellent handling and smooth steering.
11 Priyanka: Mercedes Benz S-Class
This W221 is a common luxury vehicle in Bollywood, and almost every star who can afford it has one. This could be the primary reason why we won’t see our lady star Priyanka riding in it often. But she owns one that she acquired in 2008.
Her model is a white luxurious sedan that gets a blacked-out roof, giving the last generation Benz S-Class a sporty touch.
The W221 is available in India’s ex-showrooms. It is a safe to ride in vehicle with classic and modernized interiors that make it overly comfortable to ride in.
10 Nick: Fisker Karma
Among the eye-catching and the biggest highlights in Jonas’ garage is the Fisker Karma. A very rare but among the most expensive rides in his collection. The Karma Fisker is a plug-in sports hybrid car powered by a 2.0 turbo Ecotec petrol engine. It has two independent electric motors that produce a maximum of 120kW and 479Nm each.
While the rear wheel drive Karma Fisker is not credited as 100% green, the futuristic powertrain and body design make it a very unique car and a common one in Hollywood movies. It is big, heavy and expensive. This is probably why it is in Nick Jonas’ garage. He loves unique and costly.
9 Priyanka: Porsche Cayenne
This must be a very expensive garage to be able to house one of the best supercar SUVs in the world, the Porsche Cayenne. And Priyanka Chopra must be loaded even more than we’ve always thought. This is an expensive ride that you cannot own it in India unless you cough out a whopping amount of Rs. 1.0 crores.
It is powered by a 3.6L 300 horsepower engine, a powertrain that enables Porsche Cayenne to reach a top speed of 260kmh on the highways.
It's built with latest digital interiors that include control buttons on the steering wheel, a navigation system, rear AC events, a robust entertainment system on the rear of the vehicle, and Apple car play.
8 Nick: Dodge Challenger R/T
It seems this singer, songwriter and also a celebrated actor loves to buy from home. This is yet another domestic muscle car in his garage. The all-black Nick’s Dodge Challenger R/T is an iconic car and the last generation model. It is a rare yet prevalent model among muscle car enthusiasts.
The big cruiser is powered by a 5.7 liter HEMI v8 engine that produces 375 horsepower with an eight-speed manual transmission, and a massive torque of 556Nm. Sports car enthusiasts say that the Dodge Challenger R/T is best suited for drag-racing or cruising at the strip other the traditional racetrack turning laps.
7 Priyanka: Mercedes-Benz E-Class
So Priyanka also owns the older generation Mercedes Benz E-class. It is said that the star bought this white sedan in her early years of acting, right after rising to fame. To add it to her expensive car collection, the movie star must have paid a lot.
The high-end luxury saloon is built with high-quality, and overly expensive leather seats which take the saloon’s comfort a notch higher, safety airbags to ensure that Priyanka remains safe throughout her ride, and other high-tech features that make the E-class what it is.
6 Nick: 1960 Ford Thunderbird
Nick Jonas is a celebrity who's well aware that old is gold, and appreciates fully the good old days. Even if he wasn't there then, he knows that most of the 1960s muscle cars were really muscle cars. And that's why Nick acquired this well restored Ford Thunderbird from the ‘60s two years ago. And now he tours the city in a Monte Carlo red convertible 58 year old car.
The car is powered by a substantial 5766cc engine that cranks out 300 horsepower maximum, and 517Nm.
Having several of these old cars, the musician proves that he has a good knowledge of the vintage cars, and he appreciates the age of simple motoring.
5 Priyanka: BMW 7-Series
This one is expensive, but we already know that the Bollywood goddess is not cheap. For this BMW 7-series to make its way into Priyanka Chopra’s garage, the movie star must have paid quite a bit.
The luxurious sedan is built with extremely comfortable interiors to make the Bollywood queen enjoy her ride, high-end leather seats, high-tech infotainment touchscreen, and advanced safety airbags to make sure no injuries in case of an accident. Apart from the elegant interiors, the car generally looks fantastic, and outstanding.
4 Nick: BMW 5-Series
After the Fisker, this one appears to be the most modest car in Jonas’ garage, the BMW 5-Series. Being the last generation in the 5-Series, this sedan is a very successful seller across the world and a well-received saloon car.
While we have seen Nick Jonas drive himself around when in his high profile cars, there are also times that he needs to be chauffeur driven, and this is when you will find him with the BMW 5 series. He has been spotted multiple times in the passenger seat in this executive sedan.
3 Priyanka: Audi Q7
So Priyanka has a Mumbai only car, the Rolls Royce Ghost, now this one is for Los Angeles. The second generation Audi Q7 is currently the bestselling SUV of its class in India. It also has a good number of fans in the American market as well. The Bollywood/ Hollywood star has been seen with this all-black luxury SUV any time she is in Los Angeles.
Being a popular car in India, the all-new Audi Q7 SUV is also a ubiquitous vehicle among many celebrities in Bollywood. I don't know who copied the other, Priyanka, or her fellow Indians, or vice versa. Or Indians just happen to love the Audi Q7 SUV.
2 Priyanka: BMW 5-Series
It’ll just be okay to say that this Indian star loves luxurious cars, and she has plenty of them. Here is the latest generation BMW 5-Series saloon, also in her collection.
The first time she was publicly seen with this high-end luxury automobile was during the first time she and Jonas visited India.
The car is powered by two-option engines; the petrol option is a 2.0L engine that produces 249 horsepower maximum. The diesel option again comes in two versions, which are 2.0L and 3.0L engines producing a maximum power of 187 horsepower and 261 horsepower respectively.
1 Nick: Honda Civic Hatchback
The 2016 Honda Civic Hatchback was Honda's return to the United States after pausing the models' sales in 2003. And the comeback was a boom. The Hatchback is an exemplary illustration of automotive perfection mixed with fun, efficiency, and practicality. It comes with European-style body design and a four-cylinder turbocharged engine. Its powertrain is rated at 42 miles per gallon on the highway.
The Honda Civic Hatchback is a smooth and fun vehicle to drive as it has high-standard features like smooth steering, a well-tuned suspension which translates to excellent handling, a solid chassis, and a well-built and spacious cabin.
While we are not so sure if after showing interest Nick Jonas drove one home, he was the special guest together with Demi Lovato during the official launch of the auto.
