When you have more money than you know what to do with, automobiles present an excellent place to spend that cash. While many of us may look for comfortable, affordable, or economical cars, some celebrities look for none of those qualities in their cars. Celebs have money to blow, and they want flash, speed, and luxury.
Hot, expensive, and sleek rides are a dime a dozen in the entertainment industry. So it is completely understandable why Hollywood celebrities, with all of the money that they make, can afford to spend hundreds of thousands, and even millions of dollars for such cars. From Ferraris to Maybachs to Veyrons, here are the famous personalities who drive the most expensive cars in Hollywood today. Check out some of the most expensive cars that celebrities drive around that tell a lot about the person that owns them.
On top of a Ferrari F430 and a Lamborghini Aventador, he has an Audi R8, a Range Rover and a Cadillac CTS. For his birthday this year, he received a 1965 Lincoln Continental. Justin is know for reckless driving, his neighbors and the media have caught him speeding and driving like a teenager. He has been pulled over several times in his chrome Fisker Karma
Kim Kardashian owns a Ferrari F430, a 458, a Matte Black Rolls Royce, a Range Rover, a Mercedes SLR, and several other expensive cars. All costing her above $200,000
He has a couple of Ferrari’s, a Lamborghini Aventador, a Porsche 911 Turbo, and three Bugatti Veyrons. One is the Grand Sport edition. A few months ago, it was reported that he was looking to buy a $4.8 million Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita, one of the nicest, fastest cars in the world. It is unclear whether he is still pursuing the purchase.
The former star of Grey’s Anatomy, is an avid car collector and has cars both young and old in his garage. He has a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, a Porsche GT3 RS, and a Mercedes-Benz SUV. He also has 1969 Mercedes-Benz 280 SE and used to own a Jaguar XK120, which he sold. He has said that one of his favorite to drive is his 1972 Jaguar E-Type.
If you weren’t impressed by Beyonce’s car collection, here is her husband, whose vehicular choices may (should) blow your mind. Jay-Z owns a Pagani Zonda F, a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport, and a Maybach Exelero; remember that $8 million car that Birdman used to own?
She is said to be worth about $80 million, with a clothing line and fragrances as other entrepreneurial interests aside from music. Gwen Stefani owns a Range Rover, but also has a Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon and a Porsche Panamera and a Maserati Quattroporte.
He has a Ferrari 360 Modena, a Bentley Azure (convertible), a Rolls Royce Phantom, a Bugatti Veyron, and even a Smart Car. He sold his Bugatti Veyron last year.
Talk show host and car collector Jay Leno has to be on this list. He has a MacLaren P1 and an F1, a car made with the engine of a M47 Patton tank, a Jaguar XK120M, one of (rumored) only two existing, working Bugatti Type 57 Atlantic SC’s, an Ecojet, that he and General Motors produced several years ago and many other cars; mostly vintage and extremely rare. He also has a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse.
Whether you call him Snoop Dogg, Lion or Calvin Broadus, he has had a great entertainment career and has a nice collection of phenomenally comfortable looking cars to show for it. One of his many prized cars is a yellow 1967 Pontiac Parisienne, but he also has an impressive Rolls Royce Phantom.
The Italian striker no doubt has one of the most notable and entertaining personalities in soccer (football) and has a car collection to match his personalty. Mario Balotelli is known to have a Ferrari, an Audi, and a Maserati, but possibly the most interesting in his collection is his camouflage Bentley Continental GT.
The King of Instagram, Dan Bilzerian received a great amount on money from his father and built upon it, earning an obscene fortune in poker and other ventures. He now parties a lot, works out in hopes of not having another heart attack, fires numerous guns and of course, “hangs out with” beautiful women. Earlier this year, he chose to get rid of his Lamborghini Aventador because he just had no room for it. He still has a Shelby Cobra, a Bentley Continental, and of course, a 6X6 AMG G63 (heavily customized Mercedes-Benz SUV).
He is known to be fond of his Mercedes-Benz SLR, but also has a Lamborghini Aventador, and used to have a Maybach 57. Kanye and his wife Kim Kardashian, also have a Mercedes Benz S Series and a G63 SUV.
While some consider him to be one of the most despicable sleazebags in the music business, plenty continue to enjoy his music, at least to the extent that he can continue a lavish lifestyle. Chris Brown owns a couple of Porsches, a customized Range Rover, a Lamborghini Aventador that is painted to look like a fighter plane, and a Bugatti Veyron.
He has a Cadillac CTS (but that is his least impressive). He has an Aston Martin Vanquish, a Bentley Mulsanne (bought for him by rapper and friend Birdman) and of course, a Bugatti Veyron.
It has been suggested that the rapper and record producer Birdman has a net worth of over $170 million. He’s a hard working man who enjoys his money. He owns more cars than most people can count, but one of his prized whips is a Bugatti Veyron. He used to own a Maybach Exelero, which is worth about $8 million.
While other rappers may have some nice cars, and quite a few may be able to boast about having a Bugatti Veyron, Flo Rida had a unique, chrome Veyron; a true thing of beauty. He got fed up with the chrome wrap and had it swapped out for gold.
For his loss to Floyd Mayweather a few months ago (more on Mr. Mayweather later), Manny Pacquiao earned over $100 million. Must be nice to show up, lose, and still make an absurd amount of money for taking a few dozen shots to the face. No matter what you think of his paychecks, the man has some undeniably nice cars. Among the nicest in his collection are a Lincoln Navigator, a Mercedes-Benz SL 550, a Porsche Cayenne, and a red Ferrari 458 Italia.
Legendary rapper turned actor, Ice-T has been known for some time to be a lover of fine automobiles. He owns a Rolls Royce Ghost that is decked out in chrome, a white Nissan GT-R that he is believed to have purchased last year, and has owned a Fisker Karma hybrid sports car for a couple of years now. He and his wife Coco, also have a Mercedes Benz SL55R, and a customized Bentley Continental GT.
Canadian musician Neil Young has been a liberal icon for decades and has had a love affair with cars since his youth. He managed to blend the two into a vehicle known as the LincVolt; a fuel efficient, environmentally friendly hybrid 1959 Lincoln Continental. It sustained damage when it caught on fire several years ago, but has luckily since been restored.
Aside from the supermodel wife, his car collection includes a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, an Audi R8, a Rolls Royce Ghost, and last but…well…frankly, least a Range Rover.
One of the greatest singers of all time has a net worth of over $400 million. She has multiple mansions in both Canada and the United States. Compared to some on this list Celine Dion’s choice of vehicle is very modest, but her 1995 Rolls Royce Corniche convertible has a classic and elegant look that works well with her overall demeanor and reputation.
Samuel L. Jackson
He owns a massive house in Los Angeles, and to go with it he has a white Maybach 57S that has folding tables inside and custom champagne flutes, and of course a built in mini-fridge.
The fastest man on Earth seemingly doesn’t get enough of speed just by running around the track. No, he owns two Ferraris, (a 458 and an F430). He used to have a modest BMW M3, but crashed it a couple of years ago. Usain Bolt’s most recent automobile purchase was a Nissan GTR.
Not only is he a talented rapper, but T-Pain also owns his own custom auto shop in Atlanta. He has a few cars, all of which are roughly immaculate. He has a Fiat 500, a Rolls Royce Ghost that is thoroughly customized, and of course he used to have a Bugatti Veyron, because what is a car collection without one of those. Over the years, T-Pain has had dozens of cars. It is hard to keep track of which whips he has kept around. He also has a Rolls Royce Ghost that he calls “Raymond”, and a couple of vintage Impalas.
The youngest of the Jackson family makes our list as the proud owner of an Aston Martin Vanquish. The talented singer and performer Janet Jackson, also owns two Lamborghinis and a white Bentley Continental GTC. Quite impressive.
His least impressive car is his Porsche but he also owns one of the fastest cars in the world: the Hennessey Venom GT Spyder. Is it a luxury car? Maybe not; more of a supercar, but owning a supercar is a luxury, and going over 260 miles per hour is also a luxury.
Darren McFadden was picked up by the Dallas Cowboys during the 2015 off-season. It will be interesting if the 27 year old can put down some more impressive stats than he did in the last two seasons in Oakland. But enough about football, we’re talking cars here and McFadden has some interesting tastes. He has a Bentley Continental GT (like so many others) but also owns a 1972 Buick Centurion that sits upon 32 inch rims and is purple with green interior and wheels.
P. Diddy (or Sean Combs) is one of those rappers who graduated from being “just a rapper’ ages ago, and has been enjoying the finer things in life, such as beautiful cars and flawless suits for some time now. His two most noteworthy luxury cars are his Maybach 57 and of course his white Rolls Royce Phantom Coupe.
While the $300 millionaire is known for flashy costumes and a stage presence that is looking “out there” in the rear view mirror, she doesn’t have any cars that are ridiculous or even that interesting, just very nice. Lady Gaga owns an Audi R8 GT, a Mercedes-Benz GL450, a Chevrolet Suburban, and her “everyday car” is a Lincoln MKV.
The multiple Grammy winning British singer was on top of the world for a while. He was winning awards left and right, was selling records by the millions, and was married to Heidi Klum. He’s no longer pumping out the hits like he used to and the supermodel wife took off, but he’s still a multi-millionaire with a great car collection. Seal has a Bentley Azure, an Audi R8, a Mercedes-Benz Sl and a Ferrari 360 Spider.
Curtis Jackson got rich and did not have to die trying, he just got shot a few times. He is a notorious mumbler in a musical genre in which mumbling isn’t a huge problem. But still, maybe his movie should have been called “Enunciate or Die Trying”, but enough of these musings, he has some nice vehicles. Among his most impressive cars are a 2011 Range Rover, a Lamborghini Murcielago, and a 2012 Bentley Mulsanne. One car that “Fiddy” made famous was his own Pontiac G8, which is heavily customized.
On the short list of athletes with impressive car collections, English soccer (football) star David Beckham is always around the top. He has a Cadillac Escalade, an Audi R8, a Bentley Mulsanne, a couple of Porsche’s, a Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead, and last/least, a Hummer H2. After all those nice cars, here’s a Hummer, kind of anti-climactic isn’t it? Sorry.
David Beckham’s Rolls-Royce Phantom – Price: $407,000
David Beckham is seen driving his custom Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead with his sons over Beverly Hills very often.
This magnificent beast cost him $407,000. The customization made the car cost him so much.
It sports a set of custom built Savini Forged wheels.
The former basketball star turned rapper, actor, businessman and advertising icon, has an amazing collection of vehicles. His modified and upgraded Escalade looks like one of the most comfortable cars out there. He has a modified Ferrari with custom seats because he well…needed to actually fit into the vehicle. He also has a Lincoln Town Car, a Rolls Royce Phantom, a Ford F350 truck and a Smart Car which obviously looks beyond comical with him inside of it.
39 year-old Floridian rapper, Rick Ross was 2012’s hottest MC in the game according to MTV, and has a series of awesome cars that more than live up to that reputation. For a detailed inspection, see his Instagram page. A white Bentley Brooklands, a golden Bentley Continental, a Ferrari 458 Italia, a Mercedes-Benz SLS and of course a Rolls Royce Wraith are among his nicest vehicles.
J.R. Smith, a guard/forward who was traded to the Cavaliers back in January, is known to collect vehicles but has one that really belongs on this list. He has a Ferrari 458, a Mustang Shelby GT500, a Range Rover, a Mercedes-Benz S55o, and a Bentley Mulsanne, but his most amazing car is his Gurkha 5F Armored Truck. It is normally used by police and military forces, but in this case it is just another way in which Smith shows off his personality.
King James is another basketball player with a collection of vehicles that lives up to his nickname. He owns a Bentley Continental GT, a Dallas Cowboys themed Challenger SRT, a white Rolls Royce Phantom, a Ferrari 458, a Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG, the “rich dude standard” Range Rover, and a Porsche 911 Turbo S.
One of the most talented women in show business, scratch that, any business, is Beyonce. She and husband Jay-Z are among the most powerful couples in the world, and have cars that match their class and talent. Beyonce herself has a Mercedes-Benz SLR MacLaren and a stunning 1959 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud.
Seven-time NBA All-Star Joe Johnson, who currently plays for the Brooklyn Nets, has a heavily upgraded and customized Ford F650. The truck cost him well over $200,000 to create and in terms of aesthetics, it is either the ugliest thing on the road, or one of the nicest vehicles you’ve ever seen.
