Henry Cavill is a worldwide sensation. With a career spanning over two decades, he is one of the most famous celebrities there is. While you have seen him play iconic roles like Geralt of Rivia in The Witcher and Sherlock Holmes in Enola Holmes, one thing you might know about Cavill is that the Man of Steel is a big car buff. On the other side of the spectrum, we have Rafael Nadal.
One of the best tennis players in the world Rafael Nadal, has a huge fan base and influence both on the game and outside of it. However, apart from being one of the best in their respective fields, there is one more thing in common between these two celebrities. Both Cavill and Nadal have a massive collection of expensive cars in their garage. Moreover, the two icons also share an astounding similarity when it comes to their car collection.
Are Henry Cavill and Rafael Nadal James Bond fans?
Henry Cavill, the Man of Steel, owns an extensive collection of fancy cars. Likewise, the Spanish Bull’s whip collection is no less. Notably, both Cavill and Nadal have refined tastes in vehicles. The rare Aston Martin DBS is one car both the icons have in their extensive collection. Known as the 007 car, DBS became widely popular after James Bond drove the vehicle in the films. The Aston Martin DBS is powered by a 6.0-liter V12 engine outputting over 510 bhp.
Interestingly, Aston Martin DBS was also the first luxury car Cavill bought after he got his breakthrough as an actor. The Mission Impossible actor humbly revealed he spent his first big pay cheque on the DBS. Previously, Cavill was also tipped to play the role of 007. As we know, luxury cars are a status symbol, have high demand, and are not affordable to all; hence the price for them can go very high. Rafael Nadal had to pay a whopping $269,000 to add Mr. Bond’s car to his collection.
Other cars in Cavill’s premier collection
Apart from the DBS, The Witcher star has an impressive collection in his garage. Every car enthusiast’s dream, the Ferrari 458 Spider is also a part of Cavill’s collection. Furthermore, the Enola Holmes actor also owns a McLaren MP4-12C, two Bentleys, and a Rolls Royce Wraith, to name a few. Interestingly, Cavill is also a fan of Ducatis and owns two of the Italian motorcycles.
