Sam Heughan, who is popularly known for his Jamie Fraser role in Outlander, shares his fondness for being a pilot or a race car driver to his horde of Instagram followers. When the actor is not stealing viewers’ hearts on television, he is a bit of a car fan. In fact, it does not come as a surprise to everyone as he has been sharing photos of a fair amount of luxurious vehicles on social media.
Outlander Season 3 Star Sam Heughan A Bit of Car Lover!
Upon closer inspection, Heughan’s Instagram and Twitter accounts feature several expensive cars, from encounters with the Ghostbusters Ecto-1, Walker White’s camper, Pontiac Aztec, and the Back to the Future DeLorean. He also admitted to owning a Fiat 500 at the start of his blossoming career and then upgraded to a Mazda Miata.
In 2014, his follower asked him “what luxury will he buy with his Outlander wages” – to which the Scottish star responded: “I bought a car..! And a record player.” To add proof that he really wanted to become a car racer, he said in an interview that he dreamt of playing a famous Scottish sports figure. He admitted, “I’m looking at a racing driver at the moment…”
The 37-year-old star claimed that he was close to landing his dream role as the famous Scots Grand Prix driver Jim Clark. The legend, who was twice world champion, died in a crash on the track in 1968 at the age of 32. Clark came from a family farm in Chirnside, Berwickshire and became the youngest world champion ever in 1963. He won for the second time in 1965. In 2009, The Times placed him at the top of a list of the greatest-ever Formula One drivers.
