From his early days gaining millions of views on video-sharing platform Vine, to releasing global hit “Señorita” and hitting top spot on the charts, Shawn has earned himself an estimated net worth of over $54 million – it’s hardly surprising that people are curious about whether he has some sweet rides to match.
Shawn Mendes has mostly been seen riding in a black Jeep Wrangler that is worth over $80,000. He also owns a Ford Mustang GT, possibly both the red and black versions, which is worth about $100,000. He is yet to confirm any other cars in his collection as of mid-2020.
Continue reading to discover Shawn’s relationship with cars, plus which other vehicles he’s been seen riding.
Two Main Rides
The two main cars that we know of that are owned by Mendes are his Jeep Wrangler and his Ford Mustang GT.
In 2015, in the early days of his professional career, Mendes posted an image of himself and a friend inside his jet black Jeep on Twitter. He captioned it “Took the doors of (sic) the jeep today, pretty stoked haha.”
Other evidence of his Jeep was shown in a video by TMZ, where one of their paparazzi was following Shawn around after a trip to the gym. He couldn’t find his car, and they walked around the undercover car park in a comical turn of events.
In the clip, you can briefly spot his car at the end when he finally finds it and jumps in to take off.
That TMZ upload was in November 2019, but 4 months before that Mendes was seen again with his Jeep. In an article from the Houston Chronicle, you can see a screenshot from Twitter of a fan who snapped a picture of Mendes behind his car before one of his concerts.
While TMZ’s video and the Twitter snap were from 2019, the Jeep appeared to be an updated version compared to his original one from 2015.
Where did the other Jeep go? It appears that he gifted it to his younger sister, Aaliyah. A Shawn Mendes fan page on Twitter posted a short clip of the “Stiches” singer’s sister driving the vehicle, with the description for the post as: “Passing the Jeep down to his little sis”
In terms of his Ford Mustang, this one is a little trickier to prove. However, there are several news outlets that have reported his ownership of the car.
In the music video for his second official single, “Something Big”, that was released in 2014, a vintage red Ford Mustang can be seen for a couple of seconds as a man washes it.
This could be Mendes’ car, although it hasn’t been confirmed.
Then, in 2015 in the music video for his first big break, “Stitches”, another vintage vehicle enters the shot, this time with Mendes driving. This could be his Ford Mustang, as it has a similar body shape, but it could also be a 1975 Chevrolet Camaro as reported by the Internet Movie Cars Database.
Spotted in Other Wheels
There have been a couple of other times that Mendes has been spotted in other cars, but it can’t be confirmed whether he owns them.
He posted to his Instagram for the iHeartRadio Much Music Video Awards (MMVAs) in 2015. The short clip showed him rev a vintage car.
If you look very closely at the end, you can spot the branding “Camaro” on the side of the car. With the caption on the post reading: “Pretty badass car for #MMVAs red carpet ! #NewStitchesVideo this week,” it’s fairly logical to link this car and the “Stitches” music video together.
While we don’t know if he owns the car or only used it for the video, he’s been spotted driving it at least two times.
The next car associated with Mendes can be seen when he appeared on a quick comical skit for the Late Late Show with James Corden.
In the 1 and a half minute footage, Corden gets upset that Mendes has parked in his reserved spot. Shawn isn’t seen driving the vehicle, but he does get out of the driver’s seat at the beginning.
While, again, it hasn’t been confirmed, the car does look like a newer model of the Jaguar F-Pace 20d R-Sport.
