5 Coolest Cars from Griffin Steinfeld’s Instagram
Outside of having an Oscar-nominated sister and snapping candids with celebs on red carpets, Griffin Steinfeld is making a name for himself in the auto world. The 24-year-old was a NASCAR driver from 2012 to 2014, driving in the K&N Pro Series West. After creating a YouTube channel in 2012, Griffin uploaded a variety of videos covering topics ranging from the unpredictability of racing to showcasing modifications on his cars.
This intense passion for vehicles has spilled over to Griffin’s Instagram, which is flooded with photos of motors, trucks, and vintage cars. Here are our top 5 picks for the coolest cars from Griffin Steinfeld’s account.
If you want to own a totally decked out Audi R8 that was previously owned (and has been signed) by Eddie Van Halen, you better act fast! Griffin is selling the 2010 R8, which has a top-of-the-line STASIS kit with suspension upgrades, full exhaust, and new wheels. According to Griffin, the car can get up to 640 horsepower on low boost and it has a brand new motor from Audi under the hood.
This black Chevy Corvette with an exposed engine is clearly one of Griffin’s prized possessions. There are countless photos and videos of the vehicle on his account, including a clip of him doing donuts in a cul de sac for his 24th birthday celebration in January. Equipped with Magnuson superchargers, the #31 Corvette can frequently be seen on the track, producing more than 600 lb-ft of torque when zooming around a corner.
60s Chevy Apache
Another part of Griffin’s #TeamNoHood lineup is his Chevy Apache, dubbed the “Farm Truck.” Although its outward appearance is rusted, Griffin is obsessed with the powerful ’60s truck. He’s already set personal bests in the Apache and won an award for “Fastest Truck,” but Steinfeld still has plans to upgrade it even more with a new chassis and turbocharged parts.
This classic car that often makes appearances on his Instagram profile is not his own, but Griffin still has a lot of love for his dad’s supercharged maroon Chevelle. He’s even purchased parts for his father, Pete, to get the most power under the hood. For Father’s Day, Griffin surprised his pop with a small pulley that would spin the supercharger faster and create more boost. Nothing says “I love you” like an adrenaline-filled ride!
50s Chevy Apache
If you couldn’t tell, Griffin is a Chevy guy who loves his trucks. His bright blue, bare bones ’56 Chevy Apache was recently packed up in a trailer, on its way to get some major upgrades, including a full interior, mufflers, a new hood, and a seat for a passenger. Before that, the truck could be seen bolting down a track and making a ton of noise with its turbocharged, 600rwhp engine.
