Actors and fast cars are synonymous with one another. Whether it’s actors driving fast cars in movies, like Nicolas Cage in Gone in 60 Seconds or Steve McQueen racing around his ’68 Mustang in Bullitt, or actors actually taking to racing themselves, like Paul Newman, James Garner and the aforementioned Mr. McQueen, it’s clear that enthusiast actors take to fast cars both on and off the big screen.
In this case, it seems one Nicolas Cage has tired of his recent film flops (we’re looking at you Ghost Rider and Drive Angry, among other recent Cage movies we haven’t watched) and has taken to customizing the interior of a Corvette C7 with a nice dash plaque.
Judging by the VIN, this particular Cage-owned ‘Vette is a 2014 Stingray coupe with the popular Z51 option package and the 3LT trim level. We can only surmise that ol’ Nick had the plaque affixed through one part of the ‘The Corvette Experience’ program, which allows buyers to take delivery of their vehicle at the National Corvette Museum and includes a personalized interior plaque and a wall plaque. The program also includes the well-known engine build program for Z06 buyers.
Judging by Cage’s previous vehicles, which include Bentleys, Rolls-Royces and two incredibly expensive Ferraris — an Enzo and a 1959 250 GT — we’d have to say that we’re glad he settled for something more down-to-earth.
However, we have no way of verifying if this white C7 once belonged to the Nicholas Cage. Either way, some folks on Reddit have actually managed to track down this particular Corvette and found it’s for sale in Las Vegas for $77,900, after clocking just over 800 miles.
