The Cars Of HBO's 'Entourage' And 'Hung'--A Discussion

Follow Matt

2009 Aston Martin DB9

Talk about night and day.  Watching the HBO shows Entourage and Hung the other evening was akin to watching Alice in Wonderland versus Rocky when it comes to energy, attitude and, without question, stuff including cars.

In Entourage, I was impressed by the 2009 (I believe) Escalade Hybrid and I remain blown away by E's latest, the Aston Martin DB9.  Of course, it doesn't hurt to see Sloan in that car with E as their on-again, off-again machinations continue. As he bolted from his new home at the end of this episode to return a friend's bracelet (at 3 a.m. of course), you could almost hear the power of the car's 6.0-liter V-12.

Now, stepping away from Hollywood escapism and into Detroit realities (and what certainly feels like a more realistic reflection of 2009 America), we see our Hung hero tooling around in what has to be a mid-'90s Jeep Cherokee (definitely not an Eddie Bauer/Laura Ashley/etc model version of this one). A perfectly cast car for a grittier (though still fun) take on things these days.
