Disney has launched the careers of many of the hottest, most in-demand celebrities over the years. The Disney platform has proven to be the stepping stone to careers in Hollywood that are numerous and limitless, as these young actors receive incredible exposure at such a young age.
Some of the most famous celebrities we know of today have actually begun their careers with Disney and went on to do expand their careers in numerous different outlets. Some of these stars have carved a path for themselves musically, while others have continued to follow their dreams of acting on TV as well as in movies.
One thing seems clear though – Disney careers seem to really pay off! Most of these young stars end up spending their money like most kids do – on their cars! Let’s take a look at 20 former Disney stars who drive the nicest cars.
20 Hilary Duff: Porsche 911
Very few people would turn down the opportunity to own this fine machine. Classically sexy curves and sleek headlights are the trademark of this incredible Porsche 911, owned by Hilary Duff. Speed and performance meet slick styling, and with 450 horsepower under this light frame, Hilary can go anywhere she wants to – really fast!
19 Demi Lovato: Jaguar F-Type
We weren’t joking – she has lots of cars! Spending her money on her cars seems to be one of Demi’s favourite investments. She definitely didn’t have to pay for this one though. According to E! News, this car was a gift from the automaker, as a thank you for their mutual work on a campaign. That’s quite the job perk!
18 Miley Cyrus: Porsche Cayenne GTS
This songstress can definitely afford to drive whatever she wants to. Metro UK has pegged her net worth as being roughly $160 million, so it’s no wonder that she's seen here driving her Porsche SUV with pride.
This 434 horse powered SUV boasts as much performance as it does style, and USA News notes that it's specifically designed to be lighter than the Porsche Cayenne GT for better aerodynamics. This vehicle starts at $116,000 before customization.
17 Britney Spears: BMW I8
Britney Spears became a household name shortly after her work at Disney’s Mickey Mouse Club. Her solo career took the scene by storm in 2000 when she released her hit single “Oops!... I Did It Again”. She’s been spotted in many cars, such as a Mini Cooper. The BMW i8 that she owns is one of our favorites from her elaborate car collection.
16 Bella Thorne: Lamborghini
Co-starring on the Disney sitcom Shake It Up has definitely paid off for Bella Thorne. She went on to pursue her dreams as an actress, singer, and director and now has a net worth of $5 million. Wealthy Gorilla projects that this number will continue to increase rapidly as she remains sought-after and has many upcoming new projects. Maybe this Lamborghini will be paired with another one in the near future!
15 Nick Jonas: Maybach
Nick Jonas is no stranger to luxury sports cars. He has more than his fair share of them! This one is extra-special though, as it was a gift to his now-wife, Priyanka Chopra.

14 Nick Jonas: RS7
The 2020 Audi RS7 is a serious machine, and considering how much of a car enthusiast he is, we’re not surprised to learn that Nick Jonas purchased one. We’re sure he didn’t just spend $120,000 on the base model, either.
His car was likely customized to suit his needs, which surely inflated that price tag quite significantly. Nick began on the Disney channel in 2007 in the film Camp Rock.
13 Brenda Song: Mercedes Benz G550
Brenda Song began her career on the Disney movie Get A Clue and has continued to do many projects with the Disney Channel.

She’s come a long way since her breakout role on Disney’s High School Musical.
11 Zac Efron: Audi R8
This is simply the fastest car that Audi makes, and Zac Efron seems really proud to own it. This mid-engine 2-seater is priced at well over $200,000 and the customizable features that can be added are equally expensive.

10 Vanessa Hudgens: Tesla
According to Nicki Swift, Vanessa’s career began in 2002 but she remained virtually unheard of until she began her role as Gabriella on Disney’s High School Musical. Disney can once again be credited for launching a young starlet to stardom, as Vanessa is now worth a whopping $14 million.
It’s no surprise seeing her beaming with joy as her new Tesla is delivered to her home. This is a great addition to her ever-growing car collection.
9 David Henrie: Ferrari
David began working with the Disney channel at the young age of 18, when he was cast as Justin Russo in the original series Wizards of Waverly Place.

5 Christina Aguilera: Ferrari
Christina Aguilera has one of the most recognizable voices on the music scene. She boasts her own, unique sound, and her singing career has proven to be internationally successful. Her success stemmed from the stage she shared with Justin and Britney during her time at the Mickey Mouse Club, and she has turned that into a massive career for herself.
Celebrity Net Worth estimates that she's worth $130 million thanks to sold-out concerts and album sales. This gorgeous red Ferrari is one of several supercars Christina owns.
