Ben Affleck and his superstar wife Jennifer Lopez were spotted spending time with family on Saturday as they drove through Los Angeles in a newly modified Tiffany blue Bronco.
The 53-year-old star looked a far cry from your average Jenny on the block as she sat in the $265,000 Ford she bought as a birthday present for Ben, 50, almost six months ago.
The On the Floor singer, who recently gushed about her blended family with Ben, looked chic in a cream turtleneck and large glasses.
New vintage: Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez were spotted cruising around Los Angeles in a $265,000 vintage Bronco on Saturday
The custom vehicle was built in a classic body style with the Ford straight-six or V8 engine removed in an interesting conversion from petrol to all-electric.
Gateway Bronco owner Seth Burgett told Motor Biscuit in December, “Jennifer Lopez bought the Bronco for Ben for his 50th birthday.” He added, “[It]arrived the day before Ben’s birthday.”
Vintage Broncos like Affleck’s are the best targets for converting to all-electric power because they’re rugged, allowing you to add multiple heavy batteries without compromising handling.

The actress and singer recently gushed about becoming a stepmother to the Oscar winner’s three children while speaking to Extra at the premiere of her new romantic comedy Shotgun Wedding.
While she stunned on the red carpet in a sheer Valentino Couture gown with sparkling sequins, Jennifer sounded overjoyed as she discussed reuniting her family with Ben’s.
“It’s going really, really well, it’s amazing, we have five beautiful, beautiful children, blessings…” she said of the children.

“We dropped one of them off at school today and we just thought about what our life has become and just felt so blessed and grateful for where we ended up in our lives,” she continued. “It’s a beautiful night, that’s all I can say.”
During an appearance on Today earlier this week, Jennifer said she’s had her “best year” in a long time after she and Ben moved in together and their kids could finally be under the same roof.
“We moved in together, the kids moved in together. So it was kind of an emotional transition. But at the same time all your dreams are coming true and it’s just been a phenomenal year. My best year, I think, since having my kids,” he enthused.
Ben also became stepdad to twins Emme and Max, 14, who she shares with ex-husband Marc Anthony.

But Jennifer wasn’t entirely cheerful at the premiere, as she shared with People that she often struggles to balance her busy work life with her family commitments.
“I’m doing my best as best I can,” she said modestly, before adding that she prefers to keep it to herself when she’s stressed out about her commitments.
“I am not someone who shares my fear. I don’t feel like that’s my life as an artist. You always show the best of yourself,” she explained. “But I’m human like everyone else, and sometimes I suffer in silence.”
The pop star added that she needs to think carefully about how many personal details she is willing to reveal to the public in her music.
Opening: The hitmaker will be releasing her ninth studio album, This Is Me…Now, later this year. It’s a follow-up to 2002’s This Is Me…Then, which was about her first relationship with her new husband, Affleck; seen wednesday
“I thought about it a lot – like what parts of me do I share with my audience? And what it means to be an artist and to be authentic,” she continued. “And I feel like there’s some things that need to be said and shared, because I think like you just said, it’s like, ‘Oh, you got it all together.
Jennifer added: “But the truth is, I’m just like everyone else. Sometimes I fight and sometimes I wonder and sometimes I doubt and I’m insecure.’
The hitmaker will release her ninth studio album, This Is Me…Now, later this year, although a release date has not yet been announced.
The LP is the spiritual successor to This Is Me…Then, which she released in 2002 during her first relationship with Ben.
Jennifer is currently promoting her new romantic comedy, Shotgun Wedding. She stars alongside Josh Duhamel and recent Golden Globe winner Jennifer Coolidge.
The film is available to stream on Amazon Prime on January 27th.
