Watch as John Hennessey test drives the 2015 HPE700 Supercharged Ford Mustang GT to a top speed of just 195 mph at the Continental Tires Proving Grounds in Uvalde, Texas. This is John's personal vehicle which was driven to and from the test, a total distance of over 500 miles.
Like most boys, Dashon Goldson became interested in cars as a child, picking it up from his dad. The NFL safety vividly remembers his dad’s BMW 7-Series and driving around L.A. as a kid – a memory that later fueled his love for cars. “He had it sitting on some nice Giovannas; I remember it like it was yesterday,” the 29-year-old Tampa Bay Buccaneers player recalls. “Every time we’d pull up anywhere, it would get attention. Everybody liked that car.”



Despite falling in love with his dad’s BMW, Goldson never grew up lusting after a particular car and it wasn’t until college that he started to become interested in fast cars and luxury rides. “When I was training for the combine, I told my training coaches that whenever I get some money, I’m going to buy myself a Lamborghini and a Rolls-Royce. And since then, I’ve been able to get two Rolls-Royces.”



Making good on his promise, Goldson has both a Ghost and Wraith sitting pretty in his garage, in addition to a Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon, Fisker Karma, Range Rover and Jaguar XJ. Goldson’s Ghost is his “all purpose kind of car,” mentioning that he can either drive it himself or hire a driver to take him out when he’s looking for a fun night out. His Wraith, on the other hand, is a ride he couldn’t pass up and was the natural progression after falling in love with the Ghost.

“You can feel the difference in the two cars,” he says. “The Ghost is bigger than the Wraith, but the Wraith is sportier. It’s not as fast as a sports car, but it has that feel and look to it.”



Because he didn’t see many Fisker Karmas out on the road, he decided to add it to his fleet. “It’s eye-catching for sure. I like rare things and it’s a rare car to see when you’re driving. I know there’s a lot of talk about problems that they have, but, honestly, I’ve never had any problems with mine. I like the way it drives. It’s not as fast as it looks, though, but it’s still great car.”



All that’s missing from his collection is that Lamborghini he first wanted before he entered the NFL, which is his next big car purchase. Torn between either an Aventador or the upcoming Huracán, Goldson has been giving the Aventador a thorough test drive thanks to a friend who loaned him one for a few weeks. But because he’s a bit of a speedster, he’s scared of what will happen when he owns his “I’m scared because I’m a fast driver,” he laughs. “And that car is so fast. I had a 2007 Cadillac Escalade when I first got into the league and I used to drive that thing as if it were a Lamborghini. My friends would tell me I couldn’t get a Lambo because I’d kill myself in one because of the way I drive. There’s so much muscle in that car that you barely touch the gas and that thing just jumps. All I know is that I’m going to get one really soon, I just have to decide which model I really want.”



But until he gets his Lamborghini his Jaguar is his favorite car at the moment. Complementing the way it drives and “hugs the road,” it’s his favorite because he gets more comments on the Jag than any other of his cars. “It gets more attention than either Rolls-Royce. But it’s supp’d up, which is probably why.” Goldson had it wrapped in black satin and added a touch of gold to the wheels, in addition to an exhaust, to make it stand out from others like it.



And when he’s out in Florida during the season, Goldson has his Mercedes-Benz CL and a 2013 Dodger Charger that’s customized with a wrap, custom wheels, exhaust and more. But this season, he’ll include his Jag to his Florida-based stable because he doesn’t like that one “just sitting around” – something that he doesn’t have the other rides do much of either. “I drive each one at least once a week,” he says. “I mean, why wouldn’t I drive them all? I bought each one to drive and enjoy them, and that’s what I plan to do.”



Cars might be one of Goldson’s passions, with the other football. After becoming interested in the sport as a kid playing pop warner at a neighborhood park in Carson, CA, he then continued in high school despite a few setbacks of hanging with the wrong crowd. Finally, in his junior year, he became focused again and with the help of his coaches was able to play college football for the University of Washington before getting recruited in the fourth round of the 2007 NFL Draft.



Still pretty young and with many more years ahead of him on the Gridiron, Goldson is already thinking about his future. Involved in several real estate investments, his most recent one is his high-end cigar lounge in Southern California. “I’d like to do a chain of them,” he details, adding that he has a lot more plans in the works and hopes to get all business ventures in order before he retires. “I have an entrepreneur mentality and am networking with lots of people to get more things going.” Not only is Goldson extremely ambitious and a talented athlete, but he’s a man of his word and is on his way to creating an empire for himself - complete with a collection of fine rides.

Watch USA and Japan go head to head with the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and the Nissan GT-R Nismo. Both beasts pack massive horsepower, from 600 to 650 hp, and incredible racetrack capabilities with wide and sticky tires, but who will come out on top?
Money in pools, gold toilets, super car race + a tiger = two of hip-hop’s heavy hitters collaborating for a massive hit single!

That’s right… Chris Brown and Tyga have released their music video for “Ayo” and Savini and RDBL brought along some sexy rides for extra eye candy. Look closely and you might catch a glimpse of a widebody Challenger, widebody Camaro, Rolls-Royce Ghost, Bentley GT, Ferrari 458 and Lamborghini Aventador – all riding on Savinis. Of course, the rappers brought out some of their own whips, including Chris Brown’s Aventador and Tyga’s Polaris Slingshot and Lamborghini Murciélago.

Big thanks to David Courtemarche for an amazing production design and Colin Tiley for his epic concept and direction!
