14 Cars Hiding In Mel Gibson’s Garage (And 6 That Should Be)

Mel Gibson is well known for his role in the movie Braveheart, a biographical film of Sir William Wallace. However, we petrolheads don’t care about that as much as we do what’s in his garage.

Mel Gibson has been seen riding in sweet whips over the years such as a BMW 7-Series. Car and Driver adds, “The 7-series is BMW’s ultra-plush and gadget-stuffed supercruiser. Its serene cabin contains exquisite details, premium materials, and a limousine-like back seat with optional massaging and reclining functions.” Its turbocharged and intercooled DOHC 16-valve 2.0-liter inline-4 engine gives 255 horsepower.

He’s also driven a 2008 Range Rover Sport HSE, which is power driven by a naturally aspirated, indirect injection, DOHC engine, which produces 300 brake horsepower. Cars US News states, “The 2008 Land Rover Range Rover Sport is a good-looking SUV that can handle any terrain and keep passengers comfortable in the backcountry and around the city.”

Here are the 14 cars hiding in Mel’s garage, along with 6 that should be.

Mel Gibson has been seen cruising around in a Bentley Arnage. Top Gear states, “Maybe it’s the size, or the shape – that simple, boxy profile with a bonnet, a cabin and a boot - but whatever it is, the Arnage has got presence. Oodles of it.”

The Arnage has an average fuel consumption of 12 miles per gallon and comes with a 6-speed automated transmission.

Mel Gibson has been seen cruising around in a 2006 Mercedes-Benz CLS 500. Driving Canada states, “A full-size sedan on the inside, but dressed like a stylish coupe on the outside, the CLS 500 is head-turner extraordinaire. Other than a price that’s beyond anyone with a nine-to-five job, it’s difficult to pick flaws in a car that’s so elegant and technically brilliant.”

18 2005 Lexus LS430

Mel Gibson has been seen cruising around in a 2005 Lexus LS430. New Car Test Drive states, “It whisks occupants along in supreme comfort, allowing the driver to concentrate on other, more pressing matters than the automobile. Its ride is silky smooth yet it handles quite well, with smooth, effortless steering and good grip.”

17 Mercedes ML320

Mel Gibson has also been seen cruising around in a Mercedes ML320. Autocar states, “It doesn’t feel as agile as the X5, mind you, but has nicely chuckable neutral handling nonetheless.

Unlike the Volvo XC90 there’s also no third row of seats either, you'll need the G-class for that.” This 5-door luxury SUV produces 221 horsepower and 376 pound-feet of torque.

16 Porsche 968

Mel Gibson has also been seen cruising around in a Porsche 968. Autocar states, “Fitted with Porsche’s new VarioCam variable valve timing and Motronic fuel injection, it produced 237bhp – sufficient for 0-62mph in 6.5sec. The optional, dual-mode Tiptronic gearbox lengthened that to 7.9sec but then the standard 968 was never about straight-line performance.”

15 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

The Car Connection states, “With its diminutive size and Fisher-Price-like details inside and out, the 2011 Smart Fortwo two-seater might seem a little more like a toy at times.

Mel Gibson has been seen cruising around in a Mercedes-Benz S500. Top Gear states, “Without a doubt the benchmark big luxury saloon, the one Audi, BMW, Lexus, Cadillac and even Jaguar and Maserati must define themselves by and be measured against.

Mel Gibson has been seen cruising around in a 1982 Chevrolet C30 Silverado. Hot Cars states, “Back in the eighties, Mel Gibson was a heartthrob, and part of his appeal was that rugged no-nonsense style that made him unique. The 1981-1982 Chevrolet C30 Silverado was featured in the original Lethal Weapon movie like Mel Gibson's vehicle of choice, which made for a pretty unique stand out on a police movie.”

Now, on to the six cars we think Mel Gibson ought to have in his car garage.

6 2019 Lexus LS

motor1.com

We think Mel Gibson should own the beautiful 2019 Lexus LS. Car and Driver reports, “A new twin-turbo 3.4-liter V-6 makes 416 hp and drives the rear or all four wheels through a smooth-shifting 10-speed automatic, or there’s an available hybrid that uses a V-6 and two electric motors.”

5 2019 Genesis G70

guideautoweb.com

We also think Mel Gibson should own the 2019 Genesis G70. Car US News reports, “The 2019 Genesis G70 ranks near the top of the competitive luxury small car class, thanks to its lovely interior, lots of standard features, punchy engine options, and well-balanced handling. It also rates highly for crash safety.”

4 2019 Chevrolet Corvette

autonews.com

We also think Mel Gibson should own the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette. Car and Driver reports, “The 2019 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray's performance puts it on a level with some of the best sports cars in the world. Some of that credibility is thanks to the growling 455-hp V-8 under the hood, which pairs with an excellent manual or automatic transmission.”

3 Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII

tflcar.com

We also think Mel Gibson should own the Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII. Car and Driver reports, “The Phantom is not only the ultimate status symbol, it's the Holy Grail of handcrafted luxury automobiles. Its decadent design is derived from an aluminum structure that rides atop an air suspension for euphoric comfort. Want to show the world you've arrived? You need a Phantom.”

2 2019 Mercedes Maybach S560

vipmotors.ae

We also think Mel Gibson should own the beautiful 2019 Mercedes Maybach S560. Edmunds reports, “The S 560 is powered by a turbocharged V8 and it comes exclusively with all-wheel drive, so in our book, it wins practicality points by being all-weather capable. Sure, it makes less power than the turbocharged V12 in the S 650, but with 463 horsepower on tap, most passengers aren't likely to notice the difference.”

1 2019 Range Rover P400e Plug-In Hybrid

slashgear.com

We also think Mel Gibson should own the 2019 Range Rover P400e Plug-In Hybrid. Moto Trend reports, “The P400e's hybrid powertrain comprises a 296-hp version of JLR's 2.0-liter Ingenium turbo I-4 gas engine and a 114-hp e-motor fed by a 13.1-kW-hr lithium-ion battery mounted under the rear loadspace floor.” It produces 368 hp.
