Adrien Brody

Undercover Clunker

6/28/2011 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Just last year, Adrien Brody was driving around NYC in a jet black $200,000 Ferrari ... but yesterday, the Oscar winner rolled into JFK in something a little less flashy ... a 1987 Chrysler Conquest. 


Brody -- clearly going for the incognito look -- was dropping off a super-hot mystery blonde at the airport ... when our photog noticed the actor behind the wheel. 

A rep for Kelley Blue Book tells TMZ, Brody's beater is valued at a measly $2,125 ... and that's if it's in good condition.

until you have driven a Starion you cant understand the draw of that awesome little ride, was great in the 80s and now is a rare special gem, that is actually more technologically advanced then many new cars on the street today

That is a Conquest, and it is an 88 or 89, and not an 87 as stated in the article. Many are clunkers nowadays, but that one looks to be pretty nice, all things considered. There are a number of enthusists who are into the Starions and Conquests, and own and have built not only very clean collectibles, but also very potent drag strip and autocross cars. This is no more of a clunker than any of the other collectible 80's cars celebrities drive like Mercedes and Porsches. I'm afraid the TMZ crew has no taste in cars. I guess to them if it doesn't cost more than $100k, it's junk.

I agree with David Jong.. I had that car back in 92 and it's a RWD 2.5 Turbo! Had that baby pushing out 550HP and 1/4 in under 12 seconds! I would have def looked at it! Fast and furious before Vin D made it lame!

maybe its something like the kind of car he very first owned and wants to relive some of those days.sometimes it doesnt have to be a fancy car to mean something to the owners.

Sacrilege! It's a DODGE Conquest, you idiots!!! Having owned one, I'm sorta offended. It is NOT a Starion. The Starion had the Mitsubiti logo in the center of the nose. From the picture posted, it's obviously not a Starion. It's also a 1984, not '87.

Go ahead and raz on the car but if you've ever driven one or been in one, you'd change your opinion. They were fast and handled better than any car I've ever been in.

"Brody's beater is valued at a measly $2,125 ... and that's if it's in good condition."

And, . . . your point, TMZ ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

Perhaps, he may have been dropping off the "mystery blonde" in her own car, . . . ever think of that one???

As for the car, just because a vehicle has minimal dollar value, it doesn't necessarily make it a "beater". I don't see any noteworthy dents, paint peeling, cracked glass, or smoke from oil or overfueling. The car DOES APPEAR "to be in good condition". Nice job by Mitsubishi for building Chrysler such a fine piece!!!
