Matt Damon Autos and Cars ( 3 )
Having a family definitely would have been a major determinant when actor and philanthropist, Matt Damon, bought his Toyota Sequoia. With three rows of seating and a powerful V8 engine capable of towing trailers, the Sequoia is the largest SUV from Toyota. Though it comes with a less than satisfactory fuel economy and interiors that are slightly lower in class compared to its competitors, this SUV is the best when it comes to cargo-hauling and people-carrying. Its four-wheel drive makes maneuverability a pleasure. Its engine's 320 hp coupled with 327 pound-feet of torque and an auto transmission ensure a powerful and exhilarating ride.
The philanthropist actor, Matt Damon's care and concern go beyond the level of society into the realms of nature as well. The cars which he owns are mostly 'completely green' and he also drives around in the hybrid Prius from Toyota. A standard of its own in its segment, the Prius gets its popularity due to its awesome fuel-economy, great acceleration and controlled driving at an economical price within $20,000. The 1.8L, 85 hp gasoline engine sitting within works with two electric motors and a continuously-variable gearshift. It arrives in 5 trims with the most luxurious one boasting of a keyless ignition, climate control, rearview camera, great upholstery and an upgraded audio system.
Forward-looking and electrifying actor Matt Damon bought one of the first ever Tesla Roadsters on road. Like all other Lotus cars before, it is elegant in shape and beautiful in design. It seats two people comfortably and arrives in a range of brilliant shades. The car grips very well on the road and has an impressively silent acceleration. It races from 0-100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and offers 400 kilometers per charge. Its zero emission and absolute green nature combined with its super handling seem to justify its very expensive price tag - not that it matters to Matt anyway!
