Matthew McConaughey's American Car Collection

With a career span of over three decades and a net worth of $160 million, the cars owned by Matthew McConaughey are quite modest compared to other Hollywood celebrities.


The Lincoln Lawyer only has four cars in his collection and two sides one being practicality and the second being outright raw performance. With a discerning eye for quality and a penchant for the iconic Lincoln brand, McConaughey's collection stands as a testament to his appreciation for American-made automobiles.


4. 2016 Lincoln MKX

Although we are not confirming his purchase, Matthew has been associated with Ford's luxury-oriented sister company Lincoln since 2014. As mentioned by several sources the man reportedly owns the 2016 Lincoln MKX. It is a comfortable SUV for a family with loads and loads of practicality. While most Hollywood celebrities own SUVs like Mercedes Benz G-wagon and Land Rover Range Rover, Mathew likes to keep things simple and sensible.

Supposedly the 2016 MKX is not the only Lincoln he has, in an interview with the Pursuitist, he stated that he used to own a Lincoln Navigator, and later he and his wife together had an Aviator which Camila enjoyed driving. In the same interview he also stated that, while filming 'The Lincoln Lawyer', he liked the Town Car so much so that he actually bought it and it now serves as his remote office.


3. 2014 GMC Yukon XL

Next in line is the elephant in the room, the 2014 GMC Yukon XL. As the name Xtra Large suggests, it is the extended wheelbase version with more legroom for rear passengers. Being a family man and a father of three kids, it is no surprise that Matthew bought one. It offers seating for 8 passengers with superior comfort levels.

Matthew bought his Yukon in a white exterior and black interior that depicts the sheerness better than darker shades. Mathew was spotted taking out his golf bag from the insanely spacious boot of the SUV. While offering a boatload of practicality, the Yukon also rides fairly well thanks to the 5.3 L V8 under the front bonnet.


2. 1981 Chevrolet Camaro Z28

Mathew is also crazy about classic American muscle cars and his blacked-out 1981 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 is a perfect example. This one is his personal favorite, as the Z28 has a story behind it. His brother used to own one when Mathew was pursuing his high school.

He even lets Mathew drive the vehicle at times and that’s what kickstarted his admiration for classic muscle cars. His wife Camila Alves gifted the Z28 on his 40th birthday making his dream come true, making it one of the sought-after cars in his garage.


1. 1972 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

When the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray was released back in 1967, it was the only car from the American market that could go toe-to-toe with European and Italian sports cars but for a way more affordable price. It soon became the pinnacle of an American performance segment, all thanks to its outlandish design combined with the astounding V8 engine which itself is an engineering masterpiece of its time.

His Corvette Stingray was recently sold for $61,100 to help 65 families who were affected by the Katrina storm. This Corvette served a more important cause than just sitting inside the garage. That said Matthew has more than enough dough in his possession that he can easily buy another one on any given day.


Honourable Mentions

2004 Airstream International CCD 28

Matthew loves driving and going places, in an interview with Architectural Digest he stated “I’ve always loved drivin’. Drivin’ is, number one, where I get some time with myself. Number two, it’s the main place I catch up on music. And number three, it’s the best way to see the country," he told the outlet. "In 1996 I got a big GMC van—it’s called Cosmo—and gutted it and put in a bed in the back, a refrigerator, and a VCR so I could watch dailies or whatever. But still, it was a pretty cramped style. So I started looking at Airstreams.”

 

The trailer cum mobile home features a 30-foot living space, where Matthew has added a tiny kitchen, a bathroom with shower, and a bedroom. He loves the Airstream so much that he has ordered 2 more and one day he is thinking to open an Airstream compound or a hotel.
