Justin Timberlake Became Obsessed With the 1967 Pontiac Gto While Filming a Movie
Combine his fortune with his wife, actress Jessica Biel’s, and you’ve got the makings for a seriously cool and packed-full garage. That’s exactly what this famous couple has. One of Timberlake’s favorites, among the many in his collection, is his 1967 Pontiac GTO.
Justin Timberlake fell in love with the Pontiac GTO while filming a movie
Unlike how most of us find our next vehicle, According to Hot Cars, Timberlake was inspired to purchase a 1967 Pontiac GTO after driving one in Trouble with the Curve, a 2012 film also starring Clint Eastwood and Amy Adams.
His character in the movie drove the car throughout the film and Timberlake told USA Today that he got attached to it and had to go looking for one for himself. Eventually, Timberlake found one being restored in Texas and contacted the owner about nine hours after it was listed for sale.
The Pontiac GTO is the ultimate muscle car
Exactly something you’d expect to see featured in a Clint Eastwood movie, the 1967 Pontiac GTO is a classic muscle car. Produced from 1964-1974, the GTO was the first muscle car produced in the 1960s. It was revived in 2004 and was produced again from 2004-2006.
The 1967 GTO was a real beauty. It was powered by a standard 6.4-liter 335 horsepower engine and was also available with an economy engine and a high output engine, the latter of which could get 360 horsepower and 438 lb-ft of torque. 1967 also saw the addition of a few new safety features like an energy-absorbing steering wheel, four-way emergency flashing lights, and a padded instrument panel.
Safety wasn’t at the forefront of people’s minds in 1967, so the GTO was a bit ahead of its time in that regard.
Today, the 1967 Pontiac GTO is worth more than $64,000 according to CarGurus.com. Definitely a classic car favorite.
What else does Justin Timberlake have in his garage?
While the Pontiac GTO may be one of his favorites, and rightfully so, what other cars does Timberlake have in his car collection? Like the GTO, Timberlake fell in love with another car while filming the romantic comedy Friends with Benefits with Mila Kunis.
That was the Audi A5 Cabriolet, a four-seater convertible cruiser that just screams “date night.” According to Car and Driver, the A5 Cabriolet has been in production since 2009 and is the convertible version of the A5 coupe. In a world where sedans and coupes are dying out in favor of SUVs and pickup trucks, Audi is hanging in there with vehicles like the A5.
Another classic car in Timberlake’s possession is a 1968 Alfa Romeo Spider. Jessica Biel posted a few photos of the two of them driving around Italy in this smooth sports car back in 2018 and it’s impossible to think of a more perfect car to drive around Italy. The Alfa Romeo Spider was produced from 1966-1993 and has been a favorite of classic car lovers since it first hit the markets.
Not to give Timberlake too much credit, his wife has a few gems of her own. One of Biel’s more impressive vehicles is the Lamborghini Aventador Roadster. This mouthful of a car is a powerful machine, capable of getting from 0-60 mph in only 2.9 seconds. It’s powered by a 6.5-liter V12 engine, powerful enough for any race track. We’re not sure if Biel or Timberlake have taken it out on any tracks lately, but it would certainly be fun to try.
