Sanya Lopez is among the handful of local female celebrities with a taste for flashy fast cars.
The 22-year-old Kapuso talent definitely breaks the stereotype that "women aren't interested in cars."
She prefers "yung parang medyo lalake."
Sanya told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) in an exclusive interview, "Parang paglabas mo, 'Ang macho nung nagda-drive niyan...' Pero babae pala, di ba?
"So yun yung mga gusto ko sa car."
The morena beauty shared her growing interest for "big boy toys" at the launch of Oppo F9 last August 15, Wednesday, at Shangri-La at the Fort Hotel in Bonifacio Global City.
She graced the event with (L-R) Robi Domingo, Glaiza de Castro, Julia Barretto, Joshua Garcia, and Gretchen Ho.
The 22-year-old Kapuso talent recently bought Ford Everest, her dream car.
She said, ”Yun talaga, e, kasi parang halos lahat ng pupuntahan mo kailangan mo ng car.
"So ako, nag-invest talaga din ako. I have a Ford Everest na..."
(According to their official website, the car has a starting price of PHP1,518,000.)
Sanya also shared she has driven the Ford Ranger pick-up of her brother, Jak Roberto, and loved it.
It was, in fact, Jak who influenced her taste in big cars.
"Gusto ko i-drive yung pick-up ni kuya, yung mga ganon,” she said.
"Minsan nagpapalitan kami ni kuya kasi coding ako or ganyan.
"O kaya minsan mas malapit yung location niya 'tapos ako bundok, so yung pick-up yung dala ko."
As a driver, Sanya described herself as "defensive" and "very chill.”
But, ”Gusto ko gawin one time… Gusto ko lang na mabilis.
"Last time, nagda-drive ako and then naka-hawak silang lahat.
"Pupunta lang akong U.P. 'tapos sabi ko kapag hindi natin bibilisan, aabutan tayo ng traffic.
"Nung time na yun naman, medyo wala pang traffic so medyo malakas loob ko."
Aside from cars, she also likes big bikes.
It happened when she started working on the Regal movie Love and Lust with fellow Kapuso star Derrick Monasterio.
"Pagdating sa motor, si kuya… at the same time, kailangan ko din mag-drive ng motor sa movie.
"Kaya mas naging interesado ako," she said.
Jak owns a Kawasaki Vulcan S 650, which Sanya would occasionally post on Instagram.
