[Celebrity Cars] The Exotic Garage Of The One And Only Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga is an inspiration for so many folks. She can write songs, she can sing, and she can act. There is something lesser known about this multi-talented artist: her extremely exotic garage.
Since Lady Gaga’s tremendous success and rise to fame in 2008 with the album “The Fame”, her accomplishments are getting more and more impressive. Apart from being a recognised singer/songwriter, she recently ventured into acting and got major success and acknowledgement with the role of the main female protagonist in “A Star Is Born”.
With her non-stop global success and massive fanbase, it is only common sense that she has a lot of money in the bank. And like many other famous people, Lady Gaga takes great interests in luxurious and exotic cars. Her collection has a great variety, from common luxury cars such as Rolls-Royce Phantom to classic muscle cars like Chevrolet El Camino. Despite her affection towards exotic cars, it is quite an irony that she only got her first ever driving licence in 2016 when she was 30. Anyway, since then, Lady Gaga has been driving herself everywhere, be it to the Super Bowl Halftime event or to the desert to shoot the “Perfect Illusion” music video.
Fun fact: She took the driving test with a white Mercedes-Benz Class E. Is this impressive? If the fun fact is not enough to impress you, check out some of the most iconic cars in the one and only Lady Gaga’s garage below.
1. Rolls-Royce Phantom

Rolls-Royce Phantom is almost a must-have luxury of anyone who has “made it” in life, and Lady Gaga is no different; she does have Rolls-Royce Phantom in her car collection. The incredible thing about her garage is that she has not only one but TWO Rolls-Royce Phantom cars, one white and one black. Another uncommon thing is that she prefers to drive the Phantoms herself despite being quite small compared to the enormous bodies of the cars, while most other Phantom owners like to sit back and be chauffeured around. These classic luxury cars come in handy when Lady Gaga has to go to important events like the one where she has the legendary Tony Bennett as her date.

2. 1990 Rolls-Royce Corniche III
If you think that having two Rolls-Royce Phantom cars is too much Rolls-Royce for a collection, Lady Gaga is here to prove you wrong. The third car from this topnotch British brand that she owns, or rather used to own, is a firing red convertible 1990 Rolls-Royce Corniche III. She paid more than USD 6 lakhs (approximately 4.3 crores) to own this car, and the purchase seemed worth it.

In September 2012, the pop star was seen arriving at the Guggenheim Museum, New York in this car, and the 1990 Rolls-Royce Corniche III made her look no less of a diva. Even though this car is a vintage car that has less than an ideal speed because of its 6.75-litre V8 engine and 5000-pound (2268-kilogram) weigh, it is said to have incomparable comfort.
In 2014, Lady Gaga auctioned off the car to raise money for the MusiCares organisation, the charitable arm of the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences.

3. Ford Bronco
Lady Gaga is a self-proclaimed gypsy, and while we do not know that side of her, we are certain that she is an unintimidated artist. Therefore, it is not strange when she restores and takes home a vintage truck that has the name Bronco, which means an untrained horse or one that habitually bucks.
The singer/songwriter seems to love the wild ride that Ford Bronco gives a lot as she is frequently seen driving this car. Paparazzi caught her many times with her family and friends in the pale blue Bronco with the top down in sunny Los Angeles. Moreover, she even took it to the desert to film the music video for “Perfect Illusion”.

In fact, due to the amount of affinity that celebrities such as Lady Gaga have for Ford Bronco, the model, whose production was stopped in the 1990s, regains popularity in recent years, and Ford decides to make a brand new Bronco in 2020.

4. Lamborghini Huracán
We now know that Lady Gaga is a true car aficionado through her impressive car collection. She has a lot of cars from almost every type possible, from modern luxury saloon car to vintage luxury cars to vintage truck. And to make the collection more complete, she has an iconic and stylish sports car - a black Lamborghini Huracán. The car made quite a debut in newspapers’ headlines as Lady Gaga drove it to NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas in 2017 to perform the Super Bowl Halftime Show. The black Huracán made a no less outstanding comeback when Lady Gaga made an entrance to Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles for the World Series. Well, in retrospect, driving a sports car to sports events is the most appropriate option out there, isn’t it?

5. Chevrolet El Camino
Another extremely exotic cars in Lady Gaga’s garage is a black Chevrolet El Camino. This car is a vintage coupé utility/muscle car and it is the perfect representation of her love for cars and her eccentric style. The pop star seems to have thought that a Chevrolet El Camino was not enough to make a statement, so she modified it a tad bit in the restomod way. (For those who are not aware, a restomod car is an old car that is restored in a way that has new and modern parts and features, and they do not come with the vehicle when it was originally built in the factory.) The badge and door handles on the El Camino were got rid of, the wheels were replaced with bigger ones, and the body got a new smooth black finish.
Out of many photos that Lady Gaga posted of her posing with the black Chevrolet El Camino, there is one that comes with the caption “Some things never go out of style.” and truth to be told, such an iconic muscle car sure will never go out of style.
