The cars of HBO's Entourage and Hung - a discussion


Talk about night and day.  Watching the HBO shows Entourage and Hung the other evening was akin to watching Alice in Wonderland versus Rocky I 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 3am of course), you could almost "hear" the power of the car's 6.0-litre v12.

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 (thought still fun) take on things these days.

Going forward, please be on the lookout for periodic updates on the Cars of Entourage and Hung.

  1. We should really watch out for Ari's cars. His cars lend itself for FANTASTIC urban driving. Not to mention all the "guests" Vince has in his cars.....
