Ten car recommendations for Yoenis Cespedes

For Yoenis Cespedes, it has been one attention-getting car after another. Each day this past week, social media has been abuzz as the New York Mets slugger drove a different tricked-out car into the parking lot at the Mets' spring training facility in Port St. Lucie, Florida.

What other options should the car aficionado consider in the days ahead? ESPN.com offers the following suggestions:

DeLorean ('Back to the Future')

With the Mets' blessing, perhaps Cespedes could use this sporty time machine, equipped with Doc Brown's flux capacitor, for a brief return to last August. That way he could recapture the powerful stroke he used to destroy National League pitching and lead the Mets into the postseason.


Batmobile

It might not be too difficult for Cespedes to borrow this bad boy, which will be featured in the upcoming "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice" movie. After all, one of his teammates is the Dark Knight (Matt Harvey).


1974 Ford XB Falcon ('Mad Max: Fury Road')

This souped-up muscle car is featured in the opening scene of the action-packed, Oscar-nominated film. Whether or not Cespedes is a Mad Max fan, no car on this list performs better while driving across a postapocalyptic wasteland, for what it's worth.


1961 Ferrari 250 GT ('Ferris Bueller's Day Off')

How could Cespedes resist this beautiful piece of driving machinery? It's the ultimate joy-riding experience. Just ask the two Chicago parking garage attendants in the movie who were charged with "watching" the car.


Daniel Norris' van

Regardless of Cespedes' $15 million-per-year salary, this van might be the most unavailable vehicle of the bunch. Why? Because it doubles as home for the Tigers left-hander.


1983 Wagon Queen Family Truckster ('National Lampoon's Vacation')

OK, the cool factor might be severely lacking, but at least Cespedes would have no problem loading all his baseball gear -- and several teammates -- into Clark Griswold's nicely paneled station wagon. Anyone for Walley World?


The General Lee ('The Dukes of Hazzard')

This could be an injury waiting to happen if Cespedes insists on entering the car through the driver's side window. But it never seemed to slow down Luke and Bo Duke as they outran Boss Hogg & Co. in this 1969 Dodge Charger.


1963 Aston Martin DB5 (James Bond series)

Sleek, stylish and sophisticated. What would be cooler than driving a Bond car into the Mets' spring training parking lot? Absolutely nothing.


Mets' bullpen cart

Once upon a time, bullpen carts were the rage in baseball. It's time for a comeback. And Cespedes' team loyalties would never be questioned if he drove up in a vehicle shaped like Mr. Met.


Bugatti Veyron Super Sport

Simply put, it's the fastest car in the world, with a top recorded speed of 268 mph. If Cespedes needs any advice on how to handle this supercar, he can ask Floyd Mayweather Jr., who owns several Bugattis ... and just bought another one for $3.5 million.
