Last time I was drinking I got into a discussion with my friend about what cars would gangsters drive.
I wonder what your choices would be if you were gangsters?

Small time/petty gangster (Drug dealer, holding up 7-Elevens .etc):
BMW E46 Coupe

Average gangster (Hired muscle, Getaway driver, Arms Dealer .etc):

If I were a gangster, I'd drive a black 1996 Mercedes S600. Would look badass in that thing.

You should add Mercedes Benz C classes W202 to the options

The W202 are commonly use by the Russian Mafia or gangsters

If i were a gangster i would drive a normal car like anybody else just to keep a low profile. like a bmw 5series.

But then again if i have enough money why not.

It all depends who you guys think is a gangster, whats the definition? A black guy with a lot of money, but has his pants down? Or the real deal, a guy associated with mafia, like in my country...mostly a bit iverweight guys, who talk slang but are known for killing people and smugling and all what youd actually think mobsters do.

Anyway, Mercs would be the cars for gangsters. It was that way in the 90s at least. It was a black long S600 or any other S class, could have also been a E class or an SL. I would actually thing that eastern mobsters would drive Land Cruisers, the new ones and in black, or Hummers even. Maybe even BMWs, X5s an 7 series ones. Im not really sure about nowadays, gangsters who operated mostly in my country are all either dead or in jail. And if they are out of jail they are drinking their money away.

Quattroporte would be an excellent choice to a italian mobster, nice of you to bring that car out.

BMW E46 for a petty drug dealer perhaps.

The Quattroporte is a nice choice alright, but I would rather have the facelift version if I was a gangster:

Seems to me there is one particular "gangster" omission here, the US ghetto king, the Lincoln Navigator.
user posted image

Most S.U.Vs tend to be popular choices. Range Rover and BMW X5 are popular everywhere. Americans like the blingier choices like the Escalade and Navigator or a pimped out Tahoe. Russians (in Russia) are huge fans of the G-class benz.

That aside, most do-ers of dirty deeds seem to favor big euro sedans, mostly the S-class Benz and 7 series BMW. The w220 and e38 are both fine choices for low rent criminals, the newer versions fit the image of the "management" types.

I could really picture a wealthy gangster with a 90's S Class and some 2001 Lexus LS. They looked really badass imho.

I'd rather have the S65 in all black, tinted windows, and a saddle colored interior. The S65's interior is so much better than the S63's imo. It comes with diamond quilted leather, bang and olufsen, etc.
I'd also pick the S65 because, it's got 621 horses!

It all depends where you live. I reckon in London, it would be a Range Rover Sport, or Audi A8.

If I recall correctly it was a Mercedes S300 or something like that. Not an AMG.
