If Game Of Thrones Characters Had Cars What Would They Drive?
posted on Jun 03 2014 by Kiri Nowak
It’s clear that in the world of the Seven Kingdoms, the Game of Thrones characters will never be able to drive a car. Modern cars don’t even exist in their world, but what if the characters were to exist in ours?
If they had the choice, what would the main characters pick as their choice of vehicle? Here are some of the cars we think the programme’s most memorable characters would drive. Feel free to add your suggestions in the comments section below.
Cersei Lannister - Bentley Continental GT
Cersei is a very influential character who gets exactly what she wants. She is the daughter of the richest man in Westeros and was married to Kind Robert Baratheon, which made her Queen of the Seven Kingdoms.
Cersei is ruthless and not afraid to eliminate those who get in her way. So what car would she drive? Something powerful but safe as she is very protective of her children. She would also need a luxurious car that reflects her royal status. We think the Bentley Continental GT would serve her well.
Ned Stark - Marauder
Lord Eddard Stark, the Lord of Winterfell, Warden of the North and hand of the king is not a character to mess with. He has been involved in various battles and he always follows the laws of the land. He is a very likeable, loyal character who is married to Catelyn Tully.
Ned Stark is a strong warrior who would need an indestructible car. We think he would drive an armoured Marauder, which according to Top Gear is known as the worlds ‘most unstoppable vehicle’. It was featured in an episode of Top Gear. The Marauder can smash through brick walls, flatten cars and survive explosions.
Daenerys Targaryen – Porsche 911
The daughter of Aerys II Targaryen and Rhaella Targaryen, Daenerys is the last of the Targaryens and the mother of dragons. Daenerys is a woman on a mission, she is determined to claim the Throne she feels is rightfully hers.
She starts off the series as a slightly naïve and shy girl but she soon transforms into a powerful warrior. She lives by a very strong code of ethics. So what car would Daenerys drive? She would probably want something that’s fast and powerful yet elegant as well as being fire proof.
She might also want a convertible as she doesn’t have children and a having the roof down would enable her to see her dragons flying in the sky. We would choose the Porsche 911 for Daenerys.
Jon Snow – Landrover Discovery
Jon Snow is the bastard son of the legendary Eddard Stark. Jon was raised by Ned Stark but was always made to feel like an outsider by Ned’s wife Catelyn. He is very close to and protective over his half sister Arya. Jon joins the Night’s Watch where he has the makings of an impressive leader and skilful warrior like his father.
Jon would need a car to help him protect the wall and serve him well. It would need to be reliable, adaptable and versatile. The Landrover Discovery is an impressive all rounder. It can carry lots of people, large objects, travel long distances, drive effectively off road, provide shelter and best of all it still manages to look good.
Tyrion Lannister – Aston Martin Vanquish
Tyrion is perhaps the most memorable Game of Thrones character. Although many underestimate him because of his size he soon proves himself to be one of the most intelligent and entertaining personalities. He gets involved with strategy and knows how to win wars, even if he cannot fight them himself.
Tyrion is also a bit of lad and certainly enjoys female attention and a fair few drinks. He would probably like a beautiful car that would attract the ladies. He would probably love the Aston Martin Vanquish as it’s one of the coolest cars you can get.
The Hound – Range Rover
The Hound starts off as a very unlikeable character, portrayed as violent and selfish. As the series goes on he shows a more likeable, slightly more compassionate side but he never loses his ruthlessness. He is incredibly tough and thick skinned and forms an allegiance with the feisty and fearless Arya Stark.
The Hound would need a robust, powerful car that doesn’t stand out too much as he spends most of his time lurking in the shadows. The Range Rover might be a suitable car for The Hound.
Joffrey Baratheon - Bugatti Veyron
Joffrey Baratheon is the heir to the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros. Joffrey is described as a ‘hot headed teen’. He is a complete brat and a bully and has an extremely sinister side to him. Although he is just a young teenager he is capable of truly terrible things.
Joffrey is also very much a mummy’s boy who is sheltered from the real world. Although he may not even be legally able to drive, if he could drive in Game of Thrones he would probably pick a flashy sports car. He would have to have the most impressive boy toy in the world. If he got his hands on a supercar such as the Bugatti, he would most likely drive it recklessly and end up crashing.
