Top 5 Cars From Donald’s Trump Garage
Donald Trump has amassed an impressive collection of expensive cars.Few of these vehicles (Top 5 cars)get much of a workout.As we all know from forced Donald-watching for many years, Mr. Trump is so often chauffeured or flown in one of his personal jets, he can have little time for driving.
1. Rolls-Royce Phantom – Top 5 Cars From Trump’s Garage
You can’t expect someone who loves vehicles as much as Donald does to be satisfied with a single Rolls-Royce. These hand-made, British rides come in so many styles and with such variable features, that Mr. Trump may well have a wing of his garage dedicated to housing them.
The Phantom is not a low profile car, though that has never been a problem for Donald Trump. There is no confirmation on what color he selected for his phantom, but with 44, 000 colors available, even the demanding Mr. Trump must be satisfied. The voice activated navigation system may, by now, be as used to the voice of The Donald as the many viewers of The Apprentice are.
2. 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Indianapolis: Pace Car
This Camaro, selected as the pace car for the 2011 Indianapolis 500, took its color styling from its predecessor in this prestigious event in 1969. The dramatic orange strip bisects the car from front to back, crossing its convertible top. It includes a 6.8 V8 commanding an impressive 426 horses. Twenty inch gleaming polished aluminum wheels embellish the high performance tires. It a good thing that this Camaro comes with acoustical foam in the headliner to reduce noise, because taking this gleaming road demon up to 426 mph could generate some impressive interior noise. The entire package is complete for Mr. Trump with a darling vanity plate.
3. Lamborghini Diablo: A Devil of a Car
If he’s in the mood for less subtle elegance and worse boy racer, he can hop into his electric blue Lamborghini Diablo. Though a sports car, Mr. Trump can’t expect to avoid a speeding ticket if he crosses the speed limit in this car; there just aren’t that many fabulous, Italian sports cars on the roads.
Able to reach 202 mph, the Diablo has rear-wheel drive and the engine is mounted in the midpoint of the body for added stability. Standard features include adjustable steering wheel and seats, high tech sound system, now classic Lamborghini scissor doors and electric windows. We assume Mr. Trump invested in the optional custom-molded seat. Why purchase the car if you’re not going to be comfortable when you drive it?
4. Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren – Top 5 Cars
A 2005 acquisition, the Mercedes-Benz SLR cost Mr. Trump 544,000. To avoid the fuss of traveling to Europe to pick it up, the company agreed to deliver it to him at Trump Towers. Inspired by low-profile race cars, the SLR features the oh-so-cool scissor doors, inset Mercedes-Benz logo, and complex, wave-like vents. Of course, Trump purchased the manual transmission version. He may not drive it or anything often, but when he does he wants the full race car drive experience.
In case he ever wants to drive his SLR on a rainy day, the car includes an advanced breaking system. The calipers gently skim the surfaces of the breaks; it’s like having automatic windshield wipers for your breaks! Mercedes-Benz McLaren claims this feature is designed to maximize breaking power, but some of us wonder if the real reason is just to keep the nasty rain off their beautiful, custom breaking system.
5. Cadillac Escalade – New of Top 5 Cars of Trump’s Garage
What Donald Trump wants with a Cadillac Escalade is anyone’s guess. For a man who loves speed, the 22 mph city driving is a snail, and is there any reason to discuss the towing ability? Is it possible that Mr. Trump every towed anything in his entire life?
Perhaps he was captivated by the word luxury in the description and didn’t look at the details, or maybe he was luxuriating in the leather seats with his hands on the wood steering wheel before he understood that some people actually drive Escalades every day. Either way, his Escalade has three zone cooling and heating, heated front seats for those cooler days and heated and cooled cup holders so his coffee is never cold. He hardly needs the cooling cup holder feature unless the ice melts in his Coke. Donald Trump does not drink alcohol of any kind.
