Danica Patrick

Known personal vehicles: Lamborghini Gallardo, Mercedes ML 63 AMG

The first woman to win an Indy car race and NASCAR star Danica Patrick is known to indulge her need for speed off the racetrack in a Lamborghini Gallardo and Mercedes ML 63 AMG. While driving her Mercedes in her hometown of Scottsdale, Arizona, she picked up a speeding ticket for doing 57 in a 40 zone, along with an order to attend traffic school.

Patrick told the Daily News about her attempt to evade the long arm of the law. “I tried to pull the race car driver card, and I know he had already written the ticket, but I said, ‘I'm a race car driver. I'm not going to hurt anyone out here, I do know what I'm doing,’ and he said, ‘I don't know who you are and I don't care.’ But then it was on the news that night.”
