Robert Pattinson’s movie career was on a tear when he was cast as Batman in The Batman. Since then, fans have seen him play the character several more times, most notably in Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and the upcoming The Batman Holiday Special, where he faces off against the Joker (and several other famous comics characters!). With all these Batman movies under his belt, you may be wondering how Pattinson spends his free time. Thankfully, we’re here to tell you that he’s taken up an entire collection of hobbies, one of which is supercar collecting.
The Collecting Factor
If you’ve ever spent any time around car collectors, then you’ll know that they’re a pretty tight-knit community. It usually doesn’t matter what kind of vehicle you collect, whether it’s supercars, muscle cars, or anything in between – they all have one thing in common: they’re all expensive to purchase, maintain, and showcase. It’s no wonder that Pattinson has taken an interest in collecting these expensive cars. What’s more is that he does it all privately – he doesn’t hang out at car shows or go to auctions, he finds his cars himself and buys them at any old time, day or night.
A Supercar Enthusiasts Club
If you ever wondered what it would be like to belong to a supercar enthusiasts’ club, then you probably only have to wonder no more. Just like any other group of people who get together and talk cars, the members of this club get excited about their cars and enjoy showing them off. It doesn’t matter if it’s the most expensive, rarest vehicle in the world or just your everyday jalopy – as long as you can tell them that you’ve got their type of car, then they’ll take you in and make you feel right at home. This is the type of group that Pattinson has created, and it’s something that any car enthusiast would be lucky to join.
The Type Of Cars That He Collects
While you might think that a car collector would only buy supercars, Pattinson’s collection actually covers all facets of car history – from early aviation and motorbikes to more modern cars. Although he does own a number of supercars, it’s not his main focus. What’s interesting is that he doesn’t just buy any old car that comes his way. Nope, he usually goes for cars that have a specific story behind them. In fact, the majority of his vehicles came from a place called Comptech, where the cars are either really old or really expensive – it’s basically his version of Robin Hood for cars! Even Batman knows who he is, and he makes sure to let his followers know when he’s spotted in a new vehicle. Thanks to a feature called BATTLESHIP on his Facebook page, where he shares the cars that he’s recently purchased and what they are, we can keep an eye out for his latest acquisitions. It’s like having your own personal superhero who keeps you updated on the vehicles that he’s captured!
He Shoots And Drives Them Himself
It would be great to say that you’ve driven one of these cars yourself and experienced all of its exhilarating thrills. Unfortunately, that’s not the case for most of them. They’re either too expensive or just too rare to be driven by mortals like us. Instead, we get to enjoy watching masterful drivers take them for a spin. This is mostly thanks to YouTube, which has allowed for people to upload their own videos showing off their incredible vehicle handling. It’s safe to assume that those videos helped inspire Pattinson to take up vehicle collecting in the first place. If you really want to be able to drive one of these cars, you can find a used one on eBay or Craigslist, but the terms of the contract usually involve someone else doing the driving for the first few hundred miles.
All That Jazz
If you’re really curious as to what goes into the collection and management of these expensive cars, don’t fret – Chikara’s got you covered. His channel is called Car Collecting Wreckage and he’s the king when it comes to showing how cars are put together, repaired, and maintained. What’s more is that he specializes in older cars and almost all of them are james bond cars, whether they’re Aston Martins, Jaguars, or any other luxury marque. If you love old cars, then this is the guy you need to be following around the clock to see exactly what he does in his spare time.
It’s no secret that Robert Pattinson is one of the biggest movie stars currently working, but did you know that he’s a car enthusiast too? He doesn’t normally talk about his hobby in public, but he does enjoy showing off his cars on social media. It seems that he and his fiancé bought a house in London recently and named it Batman House. They even have a Batman Christmas tree that they decorate each year. It’s no wonder that he’s taken an interest in carving out a niche for himself as the definitive Batman – he’s always had a thing for collecting cars and now he’s got the opportunity to do what he loves while playing a character who genuinely deserves the attention. If you like Batman, then you should definitely follow his lead and start collecting cars too!
