London: ‘Harry Potter’ star Rupert Grint owns a portfolio of unusual vehicles, including a hovercraft and an orange Range Rover, which he bought because it "seemed like a good idea at the time".

The actor admits he has "not much idea" of how much money he has from starring in the film series - one of the most successful movie franchises of all time - but has used his riches to collect a number of unorthodox vehicles, which also includes an ice-cream van, and a pink BMX, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"I don`t really like to blend in. I like standing out. I can`t really deal with the money thing. But it`s nice knowing that I don`t ever have to really worry about anything. I`ve got a hovercraft. It`s quite strange to drive, but I have fun with it. The orange Range Rover just seemed like a good idea at the time. I don`t even think about the connection with being ginger," said the red-haired star.

Although he enjoys splashing out on unusual vehicles, the 22-year-old star admits he hasn`t used his ice cream van as often as he expected to because it is quite difficult to manoeuvre.

"It`s just something I`ve always wanted when I was a kid. I don`t really use it as much as I thought I would. I used to have stock in it, but not so much now. It`s not the most practical vehicle. It`s only got one seat. It`s basically a kitchen," he said.
