The world is mourning Matthew Perry, who played one of the most beloved characters of all time as Chandler Bing in Friends.

When Friends made it big, Matthew Perry knew he wanted to use his first paycheck wisely.

So naturally he bought a BMW roadster.

BMW produced a limited number of this instant classic, one of which was snatched up by Perry.

The convertible can reach 60mph in 4.6 seconds and is worth about $131,500.

Aston Martin Vantage

One of Perry’s most valuable cars is his Aston Martin Vantage worth $151,000.

The star was often seen zooming around Los Angeles in his Roadster after buying it in 2022.

He purchased his Z8 in the 1990s and has favored convertibles ever since.

He also loves fast cars, with the Vantage having a top speed of 190kph.

Lincoln Navigator

For days when Perry didn’t feel like the attention that came with driving with the top down, he opted for his Lincoln Navigator.

This beast of an SUV is super spacious and luxurious and is worth $76,710.

It boasts heated and ventilated seats, ambient lighting, multi-zone climate control and a panoramic sunroof.

The Navigator also comes with privacy glass, making it the ideal choice for celebrities.

Porsche Panamera

This luxury sports sedan combines sporty aesthetics with elegant design.

Perry chose this car for its impressive capabilities, with a top speed of 168mph.

Although it’s a relatively big car, the Panamera handles exceptionally well, creating a responsive and enjoyable driving experience.

Perry spent $89,750 on this twin-turbo car.

Porsche Taycan 4S

As a Porsche fan, Perry had to get his hands on its first all-electric sports car.

The Taycan is incredibly quick, offers precise handling, and boasts a long driving range.

It hits the balance between performance and sustainability, with a dual-motor set-up and electric powertrain.

This was another one of Perry’s favorites to drive around Los Angeles in.

Also parked in Perry’s garage are an Audi R8 Spyder, a BMW 6 Series convertible and a BMW 7 Series sedan.

While it’s the personality of Matthew Perry that will be remembered more than his material possessions, his car collection symbolizes much of what was so cherished about the star.

This is a collection of cars that are a joy to drive, serving as a reminder to the driver and us to enjoy life.
