In case you’ve been living under a rock and don’t know who El Chapo is, here’s a quick refresher. Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman is one of the world’s most notorious drug lords and the leader of Mexico’s Sinaloa Cartel. He recently escaped Mexico’s Altiplano prison through an underground tunnel featuring a motorcycle on rails. Seriously. Now that he’s free the manhunt is on, which got us thinking about how El Chapo is getting around. Here are five cars we think he is/should be driving.
Yes, it's the Dartz Prombron. The Latvian car company caters to eccentric personalities and its signature SUV has a B7 armor rating, meaning it can stop just about anything. It's also luxurious on the inside, and luxury is something a drug lord looks for in a car.
Now a Lamborghini Aventador SV isn't exactly something you drive when you're trying to stay under the radar. That being said, if El Chapo wants to taunt authorities there's no better car to do it in. One week you're in prison and the next you're cruising through Mexico in one of the world's hottest supercars.
You might be wondering what the hell this is, and that's okay. It's the MXT from Mexico's own (and now defunct) Mastretta Cars. If El Chapo was feeling nationalistic and generous he could revive the company and drive around in its signature sports car while free.
El Chapo's net worth is estimated to be somewhere around $1 billion. That means he could easily afford both the Mercedes-AMG GT S and the Cigarette Racing 50 Marauder GT S. If the authorities get too close he can just floor it until he gets to his boat and then haul ass out on the ocean.
Now if El Chapo wants to stay out of prison he needs to ignore all the cars above and keep things quiet. A rust wrap could help him do just that. Now whether or not he wraps a Lamborghini or a Volkswagen van is anyone's guess.
