Wildly Expensive Celebrity Cars
Cardi B paid how much for her Lamborghini?!
Most people can only dream of one day driving one of a luxury car — let alone dream of driving one of the most exclusive cars in the world. But for celebrities, owning a coveted luxury car — or two — is an everyday reality.
Some of the richest actors, musicians, sports stars and entertainers own some of the world’s most expensive cars. From Kim Kardashian’s $325,000 Ferrari to Simon Cowell’s $863,000 Jaguar, celebrities are in a position to purchase cars for more than what average people pay for an entire house.
Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs
Rapper and business mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs is an avid car collector and has one of the most impressive and expensive car collections out there — besides Jay Leno, of course. Among his luxury vehicles is a white Phantom Drophead Coupé, manufactured by Rolls-Royce. The handmade car, which debuted in 2007, is one of Rolls-Royce’s more high-end models, retailing for $443,000.
Soccer superstar David Beckham is another celebrity car collector, with more than 20 vehicles to his name. That includes the fully customized Ferrari 612 Scaglietti, similar to the one below, which is worth over $265,000.
Fun fact: Beckham’s Ferrari has a decal of his shirt number, 7, from when he played for Manchester United and England.
Actor Nicolas Cage’s massive fleet of cars includes a classic red Ferrari Enzo, similar to the one below. The luxury vehicle is thought to have run Cage at least $670,000. It was also once dubbed by Bloomberg Businessweek as one of the “ugliest cars” of the past five decades.
Missy Elliott has one of the hottest car collections in town. Among her luxury rides: an Aston Martin V12 Vanquish, a Rolls-Royce Phantom and a matte white Lamborghini Aventador like the one below. The Aventador cost the iconic rapper about $376,000 — and she had to fight to get it.
What is up with Jerry Seinfeld’s car collection? The comedian is yet another celebrity with a treasure trove of luxury vehicles, including the rare 1986 Porsche 959 in white, like the one below. It’s believed that Seinfeld dropped a cool $700,000 on the vintage sports car.
Rapper Kanye West is the proud owner of the limited edition Mercedes SLR Stirling Moss. Only 75 units were made of this luxury Mercedes model seen below. And the price tag is pretty hefty: $1.06 million.
Music mogul Simon Cowell added the Jaguar E-Type Eagle Speedster to his collection after spotting the rare vehicle on the U.K. version of “Top Gear.” In fact, the Eagle Speedster is so rare that only three of its type exist in the world. Cowell dropped about $863,005 on his model, similar to the one below.
Together, Beyoncé and Jay-Z own one of the most outrageous supercar collections on this list, worth millions upon millions of dollars. Among their gems is Beyoncé’s vintage white Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II, like the one below, that was gifted by Jay-Z on the singer’s 25th birthday. The cost? A cool $1 million.
But nothing beats Jay-Z’s Maybach Exelero, similar to the one below. The stunning 2-seater coupe can go up to 200 miles per hour, which is a pretty intense speed. And it comes with an equally intense price: $8 million was spent by the rap mogul.
There’s no doubt that Britney Spears worked for her white Maserati GranTurismo, like the one below. The legendary pop star dropped an estimated $200,000 on her Italian luxury car. But it’s not the first Maserati Spears has owned: She bought a black model back in 2010.
Comedian Jay Leno has one of the most famous car collections among celebrities, with more than 300 automobiles and motorcycles in his legendary garage. Among them is the 1955 Mercedes 300SL Gullwing Coupé, which is worth an estimated $1.8 million. And the great thing about this car, like the one below, is that Leno restored the racer with his own hands.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has a car collection that matches his big personality. Hollywood’s leading man owns a custom-built Ford F-150 Pickup, a two-door Rolls-Royce Wraith and a Pagani Huayra like the one below that’s worth $1.3 million. Talk about a blockbuster.
Not only is Cristiano Ronaldo a soccer sensation, but he’s also the owner of a limited edition Ferrari LaFerrari. Only 499 units were manufactured, which means Ronaldo is one of a lucky few to own this exotic vehicle. And it cost him about $1.3 million for that honor.
Reality TV star Kim Kardashian owns a gorgeous white Ferrari 458 Italia like the one below, which was given to her as a present in 2011 when she tied the knot with ex-husband Kris Humphries. The sports car is estimated to have cost $325,000. But Kardashian may soon have to give up her Ferrari, as federal prosecutors claim it was gifted by fugitive businessman, Jho Low, using money stolen from the Malaysian government.
No one does flashy quite like Paris Hilton. The Hilton heiress picked up a customized Bentley GT Continental that’s bubblegum pink — inside and out (it’s the car in the background). “I think when you’re a little girl and you have the Barbie Corvette you’re like, ‘I wish I had a car like this one,’” Hilton told People back in 2008. “So I think [it’s] just being a fan of Barbie for so long.” The price of her Barbie dream car? Around $285,000.
Paris Hilton isn’t the only fan of pink cars. New York rapper Nicki Minaj is the proud owner of a Lamborghini Aventador like the one below, but in bubblegum pink. The custom sports car ran her $400,000. But it’s not the only pink car in her fleet: Minaj also owns a pink Ranger Rover and pink Bentley.
Fashion designer Ralph Lauren spent millions on his exclusive Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic, shown below. How many? $40 million, to be exact. And why such an outrageous price? Because Lauren’s Bugatti is only one of two models in the world.
Queen Latifah is not only a groundbreaking hip-hop artist and talented actor, but she’s also a Rolls-Royce owner. The award-winning artist picked up a Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé like the one below after her Mercedes-Benz S63 was stolen in 2016. The cost of her sleek new ride is estimated at $370,000.
Hip-hop mogul Dr. Dre likes his luxury cars customized — and his all-black Cadillac Escalade ESV is no exception. The base price of the Escalade ESV, like the one below, is around $96,000, but with the various upgrades, which cost upwards of $200,000, the value of Dre’s Cadillac bumps up to $400,000.
Drake has no qualms about dropping serious cash on luxury cars. His fleet includes Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Bentleys and more. The Canadian rapper and actor is also the owner of a Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir, a special edition model that runs $1.5 million.
Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason owns a classic Ferrari 250 GTO, one of the most expensive sports cars in the world. This is a situation in which the value of the car far outweighs the cost, though. Back in 1977, Mason used proceeds from Pink Floyd’s album, “Dark Side of the Moon,” to buy his vehicle for a little over $49,000. Today, the Ferrari 250 GTO is worth between $40 million and $50 million, with a similar model reportedly sold at auction in 2013 for $52 million.
This year, 50 Cent partied like it was his birthday by snagging himself a new 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom like the one below, but in matte black. It’s not known how much the rap mogul and actor dropped on his new ride. But auto sites place its base price between $460,000 and $588,000.
Just days after giving birth to her first child, Kulture Kiari Cephus, rapper Cardi B went out and bought herself her first Lamborghini, similar to the one below — but baby blue. The Aventador model cost the Bronx-born artist nearly $550,000. Her husband, rapper Offset, got himself a matching Lamborghini in lime green.
Like Jay-Z, rapper Birdman once dropped $8 million on a custom Maybach Excelero to add to his fleet of supercars. But the music mogul also owns a sleek Bugatti Veyron in deep scarlet. It set Birdman back $2 million.
Count Tom Brady among the Bugatti owners on this list. The New England Patriots quarterback picked up a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport like the one below to the tune of $3 million. But that’s a drop in the bucket for the football superstar who’s earned nearly $200 million in his career.
Samuel Eto’o is a celebrated Cameroon footballer who’s no stranger to collecting cars. Among his prized possessions is an Aston Martin One 77 that cost an estimated $1.33 million. He also owns a Bugatti Veyron, Rolls-Royce and Maybach.
When you’re pregnant, self-care is important. For Blac Chyna, that meant picking up a new Rolls-Royce Wraith like the one below to add to her fleet of cars. The reality TV star and entertainer bought herself the luxury car back in 2016 when she was pregnant with daughter Dream. And it only cost her $400,000.
Flo Rida has the flashiest Bugatti Veyron on this list. The multi-platinum rapper wrapped his Bugatti in gold chrome, matching the car’s 24-karat gold Forgiato rims. The model is worth an estimated $1.7 million, but Flo Rida’s golden upgrades have surely upped the value. The one below is similar, but Flo Rida’s doesn’t have the white line decals.
Justin Bieber is another celebrity who collects exotic cars like people collect stamps. The Canadian pop star owns a Ferrari 458 Italia, a Lamborghini Aventador coupé, a customized Range Rover SUV and a Cadillac CTS-V Coupe, among a number of other beauties. But his most recognizable ride is his Audi R8, which he had decked out in leopard print. The customized Audi reportedly set back the multimillionaire around $150,000. Just imagine the one below, but with the spots of a wild animal that no one should ever go near unless they’re a member of Steven Irwin’s family.
Lil Wayne was the first Black rapper to buy the ever-popular Bugatti Veyron. His customized model, similar to the one below, features a matte black finish and a $2.7 million price tag. Talk about being a trailblazer.
