We know there is more than one way to celebrate the patron saint of Ireland, so you’re going to need just the right car to vibe with your St. Patrick’s Day weekend plans. That’s exactly why we’ve picked out the cars that are best suited to all the festive delights of St. Patrick’s day — well, except the ones that come in pint glasses.
NATHAN’S HUMMER H1 ALPHA 2006
It’s classic, it’s salty, and just a little spicy. But mostly, it’s satisfying AF. For those seeking a meaty vehicle, who go big or go home, hunger no longer: this hunk of a beast will suffice.
ASHKAY’S CHEVROLET CORVETTE STINGRAY 2014
Nothing says rockstar and shamrock together quite like the sharp angles and bright green on this Corvette. Does it turn heads? Yes. Does it look drastically different at night than during the day? Clearly. Does it make a lot of noise? It can’t help it. This color on the Corvette is as rare as the four-leaf clover, so don’t let it pass you by.
ALEX’S NISSAN FIGARO
If there were any car that we’d want to put on a charm bracelet or eat as a marshmallow in our cereal, it’s this Figaro. It’s pint-sized and adorable, an appetizing shade of green, and how could those little round headlights not bring you good luck?
Literally a pot of gold:
TONY’S INFINITY QX50 2017
What’s better than a pot of gold? A pot of gold made by Infiniti. It has all the flash, class, and sass of a bucket of coins, except that it drives with elegance and power, and it’s really comfortable to sit in. What pot of gold can say that?
Meanest, greenest car:
SARFRAAZ’S LAMBORGHINI HURACAN 2015
Have you seen the tilt of its eyebrows? Have you heard the snarl of its V10 engine? The green on his Huracán makes coffee spill, makes dogs whine, and burns pink outlines into the underside of your eyelids, even minutes after it’s zipped by.
CHRIS’ BMW 3 SERIES 2001
Luck is for fools. This BMW is guaranteed to produce a rainbow of lights that will follow you everywhere you go, reliably leading to a pot of gold — ahem, you. With colored lights inside and out that pulse to the bass line of your music, this car is always the hottest dance spot in town.
Most leprechaun lifestyle:
KRISHNAKUMAR’S SMART FORTWO 2009
The only thing better than traveling the world, frolicking in green hills, and playing tricks on unsuspecting passersby, is getting paid to do it. That’s what leprechaun lifestyle is all about. If you’re a leprechaun with a really large social following, this smart car is small enough to keep your tricks sneaky, but leaves enough room to get a good selfie angle from the convertible roof and bring along your well-groomed dogs.
Best for pretending to drive the Pope around:
BEVERLY’S NISSAN MURANO CROSSCABRIOLET 2013
Some cars are all about their looks, others are all about the story. Once in a while, an extraordinary driving experience means letting your car play second fiddle to the precious cargo on board. After all, when you’re pretending to tote the Pope down the street, your want to make sure it’s in a modest, yet respectable vehicle.
