What would a car collection be without a bit of “Raw Power?” Iggy Pop’s collection includes a Ferrari, a difficult vehicle to acquire. If you want to buy one new, you usually have to have a good relationship with Ferrari and a history of expressing interest in the brand. You also have to stay on the company’s good side if you want to keep buying Ferraris, and far tamer musicians than Iggy Pop have fallen foul of the prancing horse.
Pop avoided those problems by buying a used Ferrari in the late 1990s. The car he opted for, a 1984 Ferrari 308 GTS, found fame in the TV show “Magnum PI,” so it’s fitting that Iggy spent most of his time in it blasting around Miami. There’s also a possibility that Pop’s Ferrari has another big-screen connection. Its previous owner is listed as “John Malkovich” — though the singer doesn’t know if it’s the actor or just another person with the same name.
Iggy’s Ferrari is one of the least rare models the Italian manufacturer has produced, and you can get hold of one for as little as $50,000 these days. Remember, though, not rare in a Ferrari sense is still exceedingly rare. Around 12,000 308s were produced back in the 1970s. Spread that number globally, subtract any junked or lost in the decades since, and then realize you’re unlikely to spot one in the wild.
