Paula Patton's Car: The Woman Who Inspires Robin Thicke Drives a Range Rover

By on September 19, 2013 in ArticlesCelebrity Cars

Paula Patton has been everywhere of late.  The producer turned actress graduated from USC Film School and worked behind-the-scenes for PBS and the Discovery Health Channel, before moving in front of the camera with a small role in the movie "Hitch" in 2005.  Since then, she has appeared in increasingly high-profile roles in a number of films, including "London", "Idlewild", "Deja Vu", "Swing Vote", "Precious", "Just Wright", "Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol", "Jumping the Broom", and "2 Guns".  She has projects lined up through 2015, and she stars in the upcoming release, "Baggage Claim".  While her acting career has made her recognizable to a wide audience, she is also known for being married to R&B/Pop singer, Robin Thicke of "Blurred Lines" fame.  The pair met when they were still in their teens, and married in 2005.  They have one child together, and she has appeared in some of his music videos over the years.  When she is out and about in Los Angeles, the actress and mother drives a Range Rover.

The Range Rover is produced by Land Rover, and has gone through multiple iterations.  The luxury four-wheel drive vehicle was first produced in 1970, and the current generation, the vehicle's fourth, is considerably more streamlined than its predecessors.  The Ranger Rover L405 is built on an all-aluminium monocoque structure, which makes the car considerably lighter than previous models.  The vehicle offers the option of multiple engine types.  The 5.0 liter supercharged V8 engine produces 503 hp.  The car has eight-speed automatic transmission, driver and passenger airbags, cornering brake control, and dynamic stability control.  It has a base price of a rather reasonable $83,545, which is probably peanuts for a successful power couple like Paula and Robin.
