With this in place, let’s slip straight into the article!
Gendarme V. Fragrance – Worth 180 dollars
When you’re a celebrity, it’s important to smell good both on and off stage. Robert Downey Jr. likes to wear an exclusive men’s cologne called Gendarme V. A lot of people think this cologne is called “5” because of the large “V” on the bottle.
However, the company simply changed their design to avoid confusion with some other imposter colognes. This scent smells like a combination of fresh cut grass and smoky woods. It retails for about 180 dollars a bottle for the pure cologne. This has been RDJ’s signature scent for years.
“A” Emblem from Avengers Movie – Worth 4,000 dollars
A lot of actors and actresses like to take movie props as a memento. Robert Downey Jr. takes this to an extreme. When he filmed his most recent Avengers movie, he wanted to take a rather large memento. He told the studio he wanted to take home the giant, 30-foot tall “A” emblem from the film. This was the only letter that survived the attack on Stark Towers in the “Battle for New York” scene.
He jokingly asked to take the emblem home. The next thing he knew, a flatbed truck pulled up outside the actor’s home carrying the large “A.” While RDJ didn’t have to actually pay for the giant movie prop, it’s estimated to be worth about 4,000 dollars.
Givenchy Wedged Sneakers – 2,000 dollars
Although Robert Downey Jr. is 5-foot 9-inches tall, he is a bit sensitive about his height. Maybe that’s what happens when you star opposite some of the biggest action stars in Hollywood. To compensate for his less than stellar height, RDJ bought himself a pair of Givenchy wedged sneakers.
They have a 2 and a half inch sole and are jokingly referred to as having “lifts.” This is one of Downey’s favorite pair of shoes to wear to red carpet events. In fact, he wore this pair to his 50th birthday party with a fitted black suit. They matched his monochrome birthday outfit and are just one of his many pairs of designer shoes.
Christian Louboutin Louis Strass Sneakers – Worth 2,495 dollars
As mentioned above, Robert Downey Jr. has a giant shoe collection. He can be seen on the red carpet wearing designer sneakers instead of your classic dress shoe, although he says he has a bunch of expensive dress shoes too. These sneakers are flat as opposed to the 2 ½ inch heel on his Givenchy sneakers.
They’re all black with white leather soles. They are also black leather studded and made by the infamous shoe designer Christian Louboutin. He has been seen wearing his Louis Strass sneakers to many red carpet events as well.
Rolex GMT – Master II Ghost Watch – Worth 25,000 dollars
Robert Downey Jr. isn’t shy about his large and expensive watch collection. He hasn’t said exactly how much his entire collection is worth, but it’s imagined to be well over $1 million. One of his old-time favorite watches is his Rolex GMT Master II Ghost watch. He actually was buying the watch for a friend’s birthday but liked it so much he bought himself the same thing!
It’s part of the Rolex MAD collection and has all black accents. It has a brushed black finish and black DLC coating. It also has a customized matte black ghost hand painted face. To go along with the ghost black theme, it has a black casing, black strap and – you guessed it – a black buckle.
Audi E-Tron GT Concept Car – Worth 75,000 dollars
Like his Hollywood counterpart, Tony Stark, Robert Downey Jr. also owns an electric car, his contribution to the clean energy movement. This model car was originally introduced at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show. It’s the vehicle RDJ chose to drive to the premiere of Avengers: Endgame.
It goes from 0 to 60 in just 3.5 seconds and boasts an amazing 590 horsepower. It can drive for about 250 miles before it needs to be charged, so it’s perfect for the movie star to drive up the coast as he travels from one mansion to the other.
1965 Chevy Corvette – Worth 79,000 dollars
Of course Robert Downey Jr. likes to buy fancy sports cars as well. His 1965 Corvette is just one of his many classic cars. This one is a black convertible with a custom, original body style.
It’s fabulously restored from its original 1965 body. Believe it or not, rather than drive expensive, fancy cars all the time, Downey says this is his everyday car. While its actual value hasn’t been disclosed, you can buy a comparable version in excellent condition for about 79,000 dollars.
Jaeger-LeCoultre AMVOX3 Tourbillion Watch – Worth 125,000 dollars
Another one of Downey’s expensive watches is his Jaeger LeCoultre AMVOX3 Tourbillion watch, which he wore on the set of Iron Man 2. It’s a pink-gold colored watch, powered by the gravity defying tourbillion. It is part of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Aston Martin collection, back when they partnered with the exclusive sports car. The watch was first made in 2007 and retails for about 125,000 dollars. It comes with a ceramic casing and is coated with diamond crystals.
Custom BOSS 302 Mustang – Worth 131,000 dollars
RDJ has a thing for muscle cars. This is evidenced by his having a BOSS 302 custom Mustang built by the same man who designs cars for SEMA, the Specialty Equipment Market Association.
This car was actually part of the 2017 car collection. It is fully customized and restored from its original 1960s glory. It is a 2-door fastback and one of a kind. It won best in show for all muscle cars in 2017.
Life Sized Remote Control Iron Man Suit – Worth 300,000 dollars
One of the questions Robert Downey Jr. is asked the most is whether or not he owns an Iron Man suit like the one his character Tony Stark wears in the movies. He always tells them no – he has never bought one for himself. However, for his birthday, his staff did decide to buy him a remote controlled life-sized Iron Man suit.
It was designed by Greg Tanous from RCSuperhero.com. It can fly and be controlled remotely and resembles the suit worn by the superhero in the movies. It’s about 6-feet tall, which is taller than RDJ. A custom suit like this retails for about 300,000 dollars.
Greubel Forsey GMT Tourbillion Watch – Worth 605,000 dollars
Can you imagine buying a watch that costs more than most people’s homes? Robert Downey Jr. can! The most expensive watch in his vast collection retails for about 605,000 dollars. It’s a Greubel Forsey GMT Tourbillion and is one of the most expensive watches in the world.
It can tell time in 2 time zones at the same time. It also has the gravity defying tourbillion control, which gives you the most accurate time possible. It was originally introduced in 2011. It has a spinning titanium globe that spins one time every 24 hours. It can also go three days without being wound thanks to its power reserve indicator.
Pacific Palisades Home – Worth 2.5 million dollars
All celebrities like to indulge in a mansion or two. Most of them tend to be in California. Robert Downey Jr. is no different. One of his less expensive homes is his Pacific Palisades mansion, coming in at about 2.5 million dollars. This 1,950 square foot home has 4 bedrooms, a picket fence and extra high hedges to keep the paparazzi out. The home is in a ranch style design and is located in the Los Angeles area. RDJ customized his garage to make a recording studio. However, he hasn’t put an album out just yet.

Malibu Mansion – Worth 3.8 million dollars
Like his character from one of his earlier movies, Less Than Zero, Robert Downey Jr. owns a mansion in Malibu. This 3,400 square foot property has pastures, horse stalls and even an indoor gym. He bought this with the check he made from starring in Avengers: Infinity War. It has panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and the Malibu Lagoon. It’s perched on a cliff and, with its retractable glass walls, has amazing views of the water. It’s a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, mid-century modern home that he purchased back in 2017 for 3.8 million dollars.
Acura NSX Concept Car – Worth 9 million dollars
The Acura NSX concept car was designed specifically for Iron Man 3, and it does everything a supercar should do. RDJ liked the car so much, he decided to make it his own after filming ended. This car is a high-performance convertible with palladium powered 80,000 THC. It also has a 3.2 valve engine and gets amazing mileage. The car has diamond quartz drilled brake calipers and a 9-speed HYER shift transmission. It is one of the fastest cars on the planet. It makes sense that it would be driven by the man who played Tony Stark – Robert Downey Jr. himself.
Windmill House in the Hamptons – Worth 10.5 million dollars
Here we are. We have reached number one on our list, and it was worth the wait. Like so many other famous stars, Robert Downey Jr. enjoys being bi-coastal.

Designer Joe Neham was given 6 weeks to transform the house according to Robert’s specifications, which included lowering the living room floor several feet and installing a new fireplace wall.
