He has won several prestigious awards, including the Grammy, Golden Globe, and Emmy, and has received nominations for the likes of Oscars and British Academy Film Awards. 

The 58 year old actor has come a long way from where he had started, and with his Marvel appearance, he has become a global sensation. According to various sources, Don has a net worth of about $40 million. However, unlike some other celebrities, he doesn’t like to show off by buying flashy cars, instead, he has a 3 car garage filled with cool classic cars and modern classic icons. So without further ado, let’s have a look at his garage- 

3. Mercedes-Benz SL560

The Mercedes-Benz SL is one of the most iconic Mercedes-Benz models of all time, and it comes in the category of a modern classic. The SL was initially launched with a slightly less powerful engine, which was later upgraded to the bigger 200+ hp V8. It was a beautiful car to drive around the city, as it had quite a lot of torque available at lower RPMs.

Currently, the SL Series gets an AMG lineup of cars, such as the SL63, and SL55 AMG, which compete with the likes of the Porsche Cayman GTS, BMW Z4, and the Jaguar F-Type Convertible.

2. Jaguar XJ-12

The Jaguar XJ-12 is a car that currently comes as the top-of-the-line Jaguar XJ-L luxury sedan. As a British premium automobile manufacturer, Jaguar created the XJ platform to serve the epitome of luxury consumers. In terms of looks, dimensions, or engine, the XJ-12 was a looker for its time, and it still is if you admire classic car design. It gets a fast-looking approach at the front, and the full chrome grille and cuts and creases on the bonnet make it look like a proper Mafia car.
