Famous Latinos and Their Rides: 2016

Feb 27, 2016

Latinos have been driving headlines lately, so we took to the streets to find out what else they're driving.


With recent films under his belt such as Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy and 2015’s acclaimed Sicario, Benicio Del Toro’s career is at full capacity. The Puerto Rican star is even set to play a villain opposite Oscar Isaac in the next Star Wars film. So what ride does this living legend drive? None other than the cult classic blue Ford Bronco, complete with weathered leather seats, rugged charm, and full towing capacity. Fitting, isn’t it? 


Lupita Nyong’o won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in 12 Years A Slave. What sets her apart from others in the film industry? She identifies as both Kenyan and Mexican and speaks Spanish fluently. Nyong’o recently co-starred in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and will star in The Jungle Book and Star Wars: Episode VIII. As for cars? She was spotted in a bright orange 4-door Jeep Wrangler hard top (we're guessing a rental) in Hawaii at the Maui Film Festival.


Thanks largely to his Golden Globe win for HBO’s acclaimed series Show Me a Hero and his soon-to-be iconic role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Oscar Isaac is quickly rising to stardom. And even though Isaac has no cars to his name, the Brooklyn-based actor clearly has some mad X-Wing skills. Isaac may conquer other sweet starships as Poe Dameron, but until then, may the force be with our favorite new fighter pilot.  


The Colombian-born actress, model and all-out superstar is gaining more traction than ever in the states. Sofia Vergara not only turns heads as Modern Family’s hilarious Gloria, but her impressive following is landing her roles in feature films like Hot Pursuit, in which she shares the silver screen with Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon. When she’s not hanging out with Jimmy Fallon or hocking soft drinks, Vergara drives a luxurious SUV… you guessed it: a Range Rover.


A freckled redhead, Canelo was teased as a child. But thanks to his bullies, he gained the courage and motivation to become a WBC middleweight champion. Today, Canelo collects supercars, including a red Ferrari 599, a Lamborghini Aventador, a Porsche 911 Turbo S, and a Bentley Continental GT. Who’s laughing now?


Colombian national team player and Real Madrid star James Rodriguez made worldwide fame with his non-stop golazos in the 2014 World Cup, leading his team to their first-ever quarter-finals. These days, Rodriguez rolls around Madrid in a sleek, black Audi R8. The R8 packs a V10 engine, is equipped with Nappa leather seats, and bumps a Bang & Olufsen 12-speaker sound system. You can probably hear James jammin’ out to Ras Tas Tas after each game.
