Celebrities love to share their cars on Instagram. In fact, sensations like Kevin Hart have partnered up with manufacturers time and time again to help promote new vehicle models.

YouTuber Jim Chapman has featured a variety of vehicles on his Instagram; he has a strong love for the Jaguar and Mercedes brands, so we’ve decided to narrow Chapman’s featured vehicles down to the top five.

Let the countdown begin.

GM’s Halted YouTube Ads: Its Impact on Creators

#5: Mercedes-Benz G-Class

Showing his love for Mercedes, Jim posted this photo of a Mercedes G-Class. The brand loaned the vehicle to Chapman for his family’s trip to the beach (his personal car is a bit too small, but more on that later). The best part of this entire picture is little Martha, Chapman’s puppy, standing on the hood; could she be more adorable?

Perfect for Jim and his family, the luxury SUV seats up to five passengers. The 2018 Mercedes G-Class comes standard with a 4.0-liter V8 Turbocharged engine, with available upgrades to a 5.5-liter V8 engine or the range-topping 6.0-liter V12 engine. At its highest trim level, the G-Class earns a staggering 621 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque.


#4: Aston Martin Vanquish Volante

Jim Chapman partnered with Aston Martin for this post; the British manufacturer lent the Vanquish Volante to Chapman for the weekend. Chapman even tweeted that he was loving it and didn’t want to give it back (we wouldn’t have, either).

In true Aston Martin fashion, the Vanquish Volante boasts a sleek, sporty exterior that will turn heads around every corner. This luxury sports car seats four passengers, making it more spacious than its competitors. The 2018 model boasts a AM29 V12 engine under the hood for state-of-the-art performance.


#3: Mercedes-Benz AMG GT

Part of another partnership with Mercedes, the AMG GT comes in #3 on this particular countdown. Chapman drove the AMG GT to the Grand Prix in August 2016, and he rode in style.

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT comes standard with a handcrafted 4.0-liter V8 engine. The high-performance sports car boasts up to 550 horsepower.


#2: Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S

While the Mercedes AMG GT S is similar to #3 on our countdown, this model in particular his its own twist. Chapman went to Mercedes-Benz World, a racing circuit in the United Kingdom, to test drive the AMG GT S, decked to the nines with racing decals and advertising. While he claims he wasn’t great at racing on the track, you can tell by the look on his face he had a blast behind the wheel of this luxury sports car.

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S sports a 4.0-liter AMG V8 biturbo engine, earning it 515 horsepower and 494 lb-ft of torque. The two-seater luxury sports car is built to perform on the track with a 0 to 60 mph speed of 3.7 seconds.


#1: Jaguar F-TYPE R

Jim Chapman’s Jaguar F-TYPE R comes in the number one spot on our countdown. Unlike the rest of the vehicles, this F-TYPE belongs to Chapman himself, at least for the time being. He posted a picture of his new ride in February and has been loving it ever since. However, it doesn’t seem like the vehicle truly belongs to him; at least, not permanently. In his original post, introducing the vehicle, Chapman wrote, “Here she is; my new pride and joy (until @jaguar need it back, at least).” Hopefully Jaguar forgets and just lets him keep it; likely scenario, right? Oh, and according to Chapman, the R stands for “ROOOAAAAR.”

The Jaguar F-TYPE R is sculpted for performance, with deeply contoured siding and a powertrain to compete on the racetrack. Under the hood, the 2018 F-TYPE R holds a 5.0-liter Supercharged engine, earning it 550 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque. The two-seater also sports a 0 to 60 mph acceleration speed of 4.8 seconds and a top track speed of 161 mph.
