Fifty Shades of Grey Cars

Updated on March 29, 2015

The Cars and Vehicles in the Book

The concept of mentioning the cars and vehicles in detail has really caught the attention of readers. Usually, authors just mention the car color and brand but not the exact model. So, it is not surprising that people went out of their way to get a glimpse of what the author has specifically mentioned. When I first read the book I was a bit indifferent bout the car specificity. But after rereading, I understood that it was necessary. Foremost, it was important to set the difference between the average person and a billionaire. And the car choices defined the character of the owner or user. It allows us to fully understand his decision making, choices, and reactions to various incidents.

Audi R8 Spyder

Christian Grey's car.

Both Ana and Christian used this car in multiple occasions. Ana likewise owns a similar car in white. It was given to her by Christian on her 22nd birthday.

Volkswagen Beetle

Anastasia Steele's car named Wanda.

This has been given by Ray, Ana's stepfather. She has been using this for 3 years. Christian calls it a death trap. This was previously owned by Jose's mother and regularly maintained by Jose.

Audi A3

Anastasia Steele's car.

Christian gave this car to Ana Steele to replace Wanda, the beetle. Ana refers to it as the "submissive special."

Saab 9-3 Convertible

The Graduation Gift

The Audi A3 is supposedly the "graduation gift." However, that wasn't really what Christian had in mind. The Saab 9-3 was purchased after the Audi A3 was damaged.

Mercedes CLK

Katherine Kavanagh's car.

Ana used it to travel to Seattle to interview Christian Grey. Katherine is Ana's bestfriend. She is free-spirited and fun to be with - the exact opposite of Ana.

2006 Camaro

Jack Hyde's car

We only see glimpses of Jack Hyde in the story. At first we don't take notice because he seems insignificant. But we are proved wrong because he turns out to be something after all. This car perfectly fits the image that the author would like to convey to the readers.

Ford Mustang

Car in Traffic

During the chase in I-5, the Ford Mustang was specifically mentioned as the car who wouldn't move in traffic.

Which of the Cars did You Like Most?

See results

Fifty Shades of Grey - SUVs, Truck & Minivan

Audi Quattro SUV

Christian Grey's SUV.

Taylor usually drives this vehicle. This has a homey feel because the car allows Christian and Ana to just sit and relax.

Chevrolet Tahoe SUV

Bob Adams's car.

Bob is the fourth husband of Ana's mother. This car gives us the impression that Bob is a nice and accepting guy and husband. The car choice also indicates that a possibility of having children is in the near future.

Dodge SUV

The Unsub

This vehicle was driven by Elizabeth to chased both Christian and Ana after their lunch in the Grey's home. This was likewise used to pickup Ana in the bank.

VW Minivan

Aspen Van

This minivan is the transportation used during Christian & Ana's visit to Aspen.

Flatbed Truck

Fishing Truck

This is the vehicle ridden by Christian and Ethan when they went fishing in Aspen.

No particular brand and type were mentioned. The image is just a random pick.

Fifty Shades of Grey Other Vehicles

EC135 Eurocopter

Charlie Tango, Christian's helicopter

Christian pilots Charlie Tango, to and fro places. On several occasions, Christian and Ana rode the chopper going to Seattle and Portland.

Gulfstream IV Jet

The Private Jet

This is Christian's private jet. It bears the name Grey Enterprises Holdings Inc across its fuselage.

Catamaran

The Grace

This is Christian's catamaran. It is made from superior and specific materials to suit his preference and tastes. The cat is one of his important possessions because it is where he gets to spend time away from his busy life and recharge. He and Ana boarded the cat and enjoyed a splendid afternoon. The scenes have allowed readers to see another side of Christian. Other than being an enigmatic billionaire, he knows how to enjoy the luxuries of life. Furthermore, he knows how to navigate a ship.

It took me a while to find the more fitting image since I had no idea what I was looking for. But after some research and seeing what other people have recommended, I came up with this decision. I would really like to enjoy a day or two boarding the cat.

Blanik L-23

The Glider

This aircraft was used by Ana and Christian when they were gliding in Georgia.

Piper Pawnee

The Glider Tug

This aircraft tug the Blanik L-23.

Fair Lady Motor Yacht

The Honeymoon ride

This is where Christian and Ana stayed during their honeymoon.

Trail Bike 125cc

Trail Bike in Aspen

There were two 125cc trail bikes in the Aspen garage.

No particular brand was mentioned. The image is just a random pick.

Snowmobile

Snowmobile in Aspen

There were two snowmobiles in the Aspen garage.

No particular brand and type were mentioned. The image is just a random pick.

      Funny, I had done one myself when I read the books. I included location photos as well, i.e. The Heathman. I noticed one glaring omission in your list: Christian's Catamaran, my personal favorite fantasy location. Nice job.

      This is an unbelievable lens. I was trying to find out which Audi Christian gave his subs and this lens popped up on Google. Leave it to Squidoo lensmakers to answer all our questions. Blessed

      I thoroughly enjoyed the lists. I've been doing my own on-line research where the music is concerned but found your lists when I was looking up the vehicles. This has been fun.

      Yes the Camaro's were in production in 2006...google it! The SUV was an Audi Quattro.

    • profile image

      For the love of all that's holy, Camaros weren't in production in 2006. How does no one pick up on that???

      Not sure if earlier comments wrote this but the beetle was given to her by Jose the photographer. Not her stepdad!!! =:)
