10. Citroën 2CV

What It Says About Shatner: The 2CV is a bit of a shibboleth among car enthusiasts. This choice shows that he's a car guy with classic tastes and an appreciation for oddball culture. Also, he likes French things, and that's always charming.

9. Jaguar D-Type

What It Says About Shatner: The D-Type is one of the most cherished British cars of all time, a motorsport masterwork that looms large in Jaguar's legend. Steve McQueen had one as a street car, and he was the man. William Shatner is also the man. 'Nuff said.

8. Dodge Viper

What It Says About Shatner: The Dodge Viper was the hallmark in Chrysler's last comeback, an achievement Shatner is familiar with. One comeback just lasted longer than the other.

7. Jaguar XKE

What It Says About Shatner: Captain Kirk was an international sex symbol, just like the XKE. Shatner claims that this car is his seventh favorite "when it's not at the mechanic."

6. Packard 426

What It Says About Shatner: An eccentric choice from an eccentric man, the Packard 426 is the oldest car on the list. It's also an example of an iconic shape from America's first golden age of car design.

5. Willys Army Jeep

What It Says About Shatner: Tough, dependable, found all over the world. Just like Bill.

4. Mercedes-Benz 300SL

What It Says About Shatner: Gullwing doors, direct injection, and a host of other technical wonders made the 300SL a unique machine. Shatner's bouncy baritone and syncopated delivery make him unique among actors. We love 'em both.

3. Ferrari Enzo

What It Says About Shatner: This one's actually a bit typical, but every famous person needs to own at least one. It'll give him something to talk about next time he's chilling with Jay Kay.

2. Chevrolet Corvair

What It Says About Shatner: He's like us! We'll always love the rear-engine, rear-wheel-drive compact car that Ralph Nader claimed was a danger to society. Hell, that just makes us love it even more.

1. Bugatti Veyron

What It Says About Shatner: He misses the Enterprise's warp drive, and a Veyron is less expensive than a full-size replica complete with 23rd century technology. Mostly.
