As one of the most recognized artists of the 2000s, Taylor Swift is a name commonly associated with pop music, teen rom-coms, and the red carpet. However, one of the more well-kept secrets about Taylor Swift is that she has a really impressive car collection, covering a variety of styles and levels of performance.
There are some definite surprises in her collection, as some of her choices directly contradict the stereotypical image she had earlier in her career. Whether you love or hate her music, you just simply cannot shake it off: she has some fascinating cars, trucks and supercars in her collection.
Taylor Swift Owned A Pink Chevy Silverado
Upon turning 18, Taylor Swift was gifted this Pink Chevrolet Silverado by her record label of the time, Big Machine Records. Ostentatious to say the least, most Swifty fans would argue that this truck does not match Taylor Swift at all. But it is important to recognize that this was gifted to Taylor Swift in 2007, in a period when her image and aesthetic were completely different.
While there is no information available on the specifics of this truck. So running on the assumption that her truck is an ’07 Chevrolet Silverado, here are the specs. There were a variety of engine options available for 2007, ranging from the smallest 4.3-liter V6 to the largest 6.0-liter V8 none of which are small engines by any standard. The most popular 5.3-Liter V8 produces 315 HP and 338 lb-feet of torque, accelerating the truck from 0-60 MPH in just over 8 seconds, impressive considering the 4,797-pound curb weight. However, while the performance capabilities of the Silverado are quite impressive, Taylor Swift decided it was not for her, donating the car to the children’s charity: Victory Junction Gang in 2008.
Taylor Swift Goes Practical With Mercedes-Benz Viano
Taylor Swift’s ownership of a Mercedes-Benz Viano introduces versatility into her car collection. Comfort. Big, spacious comfort is what the Viano is all about. With massive leather seats arranged to be facing each other, and enough space for 8 passengers to be seated comfortably, the Viano is perfect for on-the-road jam sessions and business meetings alike, making it a classy yet convenient car to travel in. In terms of power, there is one petrol engine and six diesel engines to choose from, with power ranging from 136 HP turbocharged 2.0-Liter I4 diesel engine to a 258 HP 3.5-Liter V6 petrol engine. It came with a 5-Speed automatic and a 6-Speed manual option with both RWD and AWD options. While it is not a particularly flashy car, Taylor Swift’s possession of it demonstrates her appreciation for simple elegance and comfort.
Taylor Swift Has A Gangsta-Style Black Toyota Sequoia
Continuing to show her appreciation for big-car comfort, a luxurious black Toyota Sequoia also graces Taylor Swift’s collection. This is a car known for capitalizing on incredible luxury at a relatively affordable price. Again, there is very minimal information available on the specifics of her Sequoia, however, what’s known, from a variety of online resources, is that it is a black 2014 Toyota Sequoia, powered by a 5.8-Liter V8, producing 381 HP. Furthermore, the car comes with 6-speed automatic gearbox. Taylor Swift has been captured loading shopping into her Sequoia, depicting a rather normal life. Demonstrating the importance of comfort as well as performance, the Toyota Sequoia is a more affordable gateway into the luxury that Taylor Swift experiences day to day.
Taylor Swift Has A Taste For Exotics With The Audi R8
Taylor Swift demonstrates her love of performance and general good taste in cars through her possession of an exquisite Audi R8. While there is conflicting information on the owner of this car, be it Taylor Swift or her boyfriend of the time, Taylor Lautner, the fact remains the R8 is an incredible car in all regards. In contrast to the spacious comfort of her other cars, the R8 is a completely different beast. Powered by a truly monstrous 5.2-Liter V10 engine that produces a phenomenal 525 HP and 391 lb-feet of torque. Boasting a breathtaking 0-60 MPH time of 3.7 seconds, it’s a wonder the singer has not spent her entire wealth on speeding tickets.
Porsche 911 Turbo Highlights Swift’s Love For Driving Pleasure
Taylor Swift’s love of performance continues to be exemplified by her possession of a Porsche 911 Turbo. Interestingly, while it was her car, she was often photographed with her boyfriend of the time, Taylor Lautner, driving it. In terms of specs, the 911 Turbo boasts a turbocharged inline-six that produces 480 HP and 505 lb-feet of torque. We do not know the ins and outs of the specifics of the 911 Turbo, but she trusted Taylor enough to give him the keys to this 500-hp sports car.
Taylor Swift’s Latest Addition Happens To Be A Humble Nissan
The latest addition to Taylor Swift’s vibrant car collection in 2022 happens to be a bread-and-butter car. According to The Sun, Taylor has made this humble purchase so that she can move about undetected in London. The car happens to be a Nissan Qashqai which retails for £26,045 in the UK.
And if the sources are right then she has gone for the base trim which comes packed with 148 hp 1.3-Liter petrol motor. Frankly, for her city commutes, this is plentiful and would do a great job at masking her stardom on the streets.
