Even if you haven’t read the books, you’ve certainly heard about the very anticipated big screen adaptation of E.L. James’ erotic bestseller “Fifty Shades of Grey“, that’s going to hit theaters this Valentine’s Day. The steamy tale details a masochistic relationship between a very successful and good looking businessman named Christian Grey and a simple college student called Anastasia Steele.
We’ve seen the teasers, the trailers, heard the soundtrack and even had the chance to visit Mr. Grey’s penthouse in a virtual tour. So today, we are going to talk about the different luxury cars that are going to be featured in the movie.

Let’s start with Anastasia, the stubborn but shy and kind-hearted college student. At the beginning of the movie, she drives a light blue Volkswagen Beetle (officially known as Volkswagen Type I) with the nickname “Wanda”. This economy car, produced by German Mobile Manufacturer Volkswagen from 1938 to 2003, has been retired in favor of newer Designs.
However, after she agrees to become Mr. Grey’s submissive, he sells Wanda and buys Ana a brand new red Audi A3, because, according to Christian Grey, it’s the safest car on the market. It’s a compact executive car produced by the German automaker Audi, since 1196. Ana decides to call it “The Submissive Special”, a very appropriate name, if you ask me.
After her brand new Audi is vandalized by a jealous former submissive of Mr. Grey, this one takes her to get a silver convertible Saab 9-3 2.0T Sports Sedan, produced by Swedish Producer Saab Automobile, as a late graduation present. This car becomes Ana’s primary car before she gets a white Audi R8 “Spyder” for her 22nd birthday.
Now to Mr. Grey. His luxury lifestyle allows him to have a garage full of beautiful and powerfull cars. One of them being a black Audi R8 “Spyder” convertible, which Ana and he use in multiple occasions. The R8, like most of Audi’s autos, features a subtle design that is sleek and intimidating, just like Christian Grey.
Christian’s second car, the one he uses more frequently, and which is typically driven by Jason Taylor, Mr. Grey’s most trusted bodyguard and head of security team is a Audi Quattro SUV, which Ana describes as a “beast of a car”. We think so too.
Anastasia’s best friend and roommate Kate, who gets in a relationship with Elliot Grey, Christian’s elder brother, drives a beautiful black Mercedes CLK.
