Five coolest things Robert 'Iron Man' Downey Jr. owns
Robert Downey Jr. is one of the most reputed names in Hollywood at the moment, especially after playing Tony Stark or Iron Man in the Marvel movies. A talented and witty actor, he has several reputed films like Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Zodiac, Sherlock to his name. With his popularity reaching new heights every day, here we look at 5 coolest things he owns.
Robert Downey Jr. is currently estimated to have a net worth of $300 million which comes to around Rs. 2,143 crore. The actor became almost as rich as his on-screen counterpart Tony Stark, thanks to the deal with Marvel.
Any Hollywood star worth their salt will have a house in Malibu, and Downey Jr. is no exception. The Iron Man star bought a house in 2009 which cost him a whopping $13 million, which translates to around Rs. 96 crore. The oceanfront property must have gone up in pricing since then. The palatial residence comes with pastures, horse stalls, and an inbuilt gym!
Downey Jr. plays Tony Stark so well in the movies that some of his mannerisms and behavior is reflected in real life. One of them is perhaps seen in the actor owning the Audi E-Tron GT Concept. Just like Stark Industries making a move into clean energy, this vehicle, too, is revolutionizing Audi as a company as well as the electric vehicle movement.
The Greubel Forsey GMT Tourbillon is one of the most expensive watches in Downey Jr.'s collection, coming at a whopping $605,000 or around Rs. 4 crore. While this might seem staggering for a watch, the GMT collection can tell the time of two different zones simultaneously. The Tourbillon technology also combats the accuracy-reducing effect of gravity, ensuring the watch tells the exact time.
Acura NSX Concept is perhaps the most unique car in Downey Jr.'s collection. This car was specifically designed for Iron Man 3 and the actor decided to keep it. The convertible is a high-performance supercar and while the NSX cars are legendary in their own right, having a unique car is a feeling only Downey Jr. can get while he is behind the wheel.
The coolest item on the list is also one that probably cost him nothing. Remember the 'A' on Stark Tower, after aliens attacked New York in Avengers? Well, Downey Jr. wanted to have the 'A' so he could keep it as a memento from the movie that took Marvel's popularity to new levels. As a token of appreciation, the item was sent to him!
Despite being extremely wealthy and owning several cool cars, while being larger than life, Downey Jr. is still not as cool as his on-screen character Tony Stark. The genius boasts of several cool inventions and gadgets apart from the Iron Man suits, which include robot assistants, an artificial intelligence-controlled luxury house, not to mention prime Manhattan real estate and even a million dollar cellar.
