Most expensive celebrity cars, ranked
We all have our dream car, and the same goes for these celebrities. While some people opt for a simple mode of transportation to get them from Point A to Point B, others prefer to drive in luxury and style. Here’s a list of the biggest celebrities who spared no expense when buying their perfect ride.
30.) Julia Roberts – Mercedes-Benz GL320
Julia Roberts’ choice of transportation certainly surprised us, which is why we had to put it on the list. For a woman whose net worth is over $140 million, why would she “settle” for a Mercedes-Benz GL320? We aren’t sure either. To be fair, it doesn’t hurt to be modest, even if you have A-list celebrity status.
Either way, we’re impressed the Pretty Woman star doesn’t flaunt her money, despite the millions she’s made from her countless blockbuster movies. And, while she does own a Toyota Prius, you’ll find this pales in comparison to her other celebrity counterparts.
29.) Miley Cyrus – Maserati Quattroporte
It would be foolish to think the glamorous pop singer Miley Cyrus doesn’t spend her money extravagantly. When you’re loaded, why not? It turns out the same reasoning can be applied to her choice of cars, too. Her priciest one is the illustrious Maserati Quattroporte.
The Italian-made vehicle’s 2018 model is quite impressive: It has a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 engine with a 360-degree camera system to boot. But Cyrus didn’t stop there. She also reportedly owns a Mercedes-Benz ML 450, a Porsche Cayenne and a McLaren model. Talk about fancy!
28.) Britney Spears – Maserati GranTurismo
Britney Spears, the pop singer who changes cars as many times as she changes outfits at a show. But perhaps the most impressive item in her car collection is the pricey Maserati GranTurismo. The engine specs certainly present it as a powerful car, too.
While the estimated miles per gallon on this model isn’t ideal, it more than makes up for it with a moderately powerful 4.7-liter 8-cylinder engine. It seems Spears still has it despite being out of the limelight or celebrity relevancy for some time.
27.) Lady Gaga – Audi R8
Some may think an individual with a fraction of Lady Gaga’s flashy style and pizzazz would opt for a seven-figure car. That’s not the case here. Gaga apparently drives a humble Audi R8. Okay, it’s not so humble, but given her net worth, she is definitely settling to some extent.
It’s definitely not a slow car, with a top speed of about 205 miles per hour with a lightning-like acceleration of about 3.5 seconds going from zero to 60 miles per hour. As to whether she prefers to floor this car on the interlocking freeways of LA or take leisure rides, we’ll go with the former.
26.) Kim Kardashian – Ferrari F430
After climbing the opulent ladder of celebrity stardom as an assistant to Paris Hilton to perhaps the pinnacle of celebrity popularity, Kim Kardashian has tallied quite an impressive collection of six-figure cars. However her favorite is reportedly the Ferrari F430, which is approximately $187,000.
And like most cars on this list, it has impressive internal and external features. For starters, it’s a moderately fast car with a V-8 engine and parallel handling features. From the exterior point of view, this model sets itself from other cars in that you can see the engine from the outside thanks to its flat back window.
25.) Gwen Stefani – Porsche Panamera
It seems like an iconic musician like Gwen Stefani needs to have her car mirror the long list of career accolades she’s earned over the years. The Porsche Panamera is a great example of this. It has a powerful twin turbocharged V-8 engine, with a max power output of 6,000 max rpm.
While the black Porsche Panamera is her personal favorite, she has an impressive collection of six-figure cars at her estate. While by A-list celebrities standards her car repertoire is modest at best. But one thing is certain: Stefani likes to drive fast.
24.) Bradley Cooper – Mercedes Benz G500
The Mercedes Benz G500 is certainly a far cry from Bradley Cooper’s usual joyride he takes in his Toyota Prius. Unlike the Prius, the G500 is a superb for off-roading. In addition to its top-notch 4-wheel drive, the G500 also boasts a V-8 engine and can go 0 to 60 in about 5.6 seconds.
This is definitely a pricier option among the Mercedes line, but it sure offers more than most Prius models. It also has a snazzy interior, with a multi-colored lighting LED system of 64 colors; sounds like an entertaining date car for Cooper and his wife.
23.) Gianna Jun – Bentley Continental Flying Spur
Thanks to the millions made from her 2001 hit “My Sassy Girl” and high acclaim in her home country of South Korea, Gianna Jun drives the super fly Bentley Continental Flying Spur. Like the many wonders South Korea has to offer, the Flying Spur is a wonder on its own.
The interior is mesmerizing with its sleek and elegant seating. It has an impressive engine with seamless acceleration, going from 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds. Anyone who has the style, let alone the capital, to buy this extravagant vehicle certainly has good class in our book.
22.) Missy Elliott – Mercedes SLR McLaren
Rapper Missy Elliott is known for her out-of-the-box fashion sense, which apparently also translates to her choice of cars. While her rumored Lamborghini Diablo 3 certainly resembles her eccentric style, the Mercedes SLR McLaren offers more of a classy professional vibe.
The SLR offers the perfect blend of safety and high-flying acceleration, with a top speed of 206 mph and can go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds. In terms of safety, it’s made of carbon fiber, so rest assured Missy Elliott won’t be impaired from a vehicle accident anytime soon.
21.) 50 Cent – Lamborghini Murcielago
Just because you haven’t put out any recent album-busting hits doesn’t mean you can’t afford to drive some of the most luxurious cars on the market. 50 Cent proves just that with his Lamborghini Murcielago. It’s perhaps one of the most grounded cars on the market, rising just about four feet.
Like 50 Cent’s personality, the visage of the Murcielago is truly larger than life right down to its scissor doors and has roots going back to the 1960s. It also has a well outfitted V-12 engine. 50 Cent sure know how to live it up!
20.) Steve Harvey – Bentley Mulsanne
Host of the Family Feud and the Miss Universe pageant, Steve Harvey is no stranger to the limelight. Like his celebrity life, the Bentley Mulsanne Speed is certainly flashy with impressive features. It boasts as the “most powerful four-door car in the world” and a twin-turbo V8 engine.
But Harvey doesn’t take all the fame for himself. Apparently he gifted a $500,000 Rolls-Royce to his wife, Marjorie Bridges, for her 50th birthday. Say what you want about the man, but the man has some great taste in rides.
19.) Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson – Rolls-Royce Wraith
Dwayne Johnson prides himself on living life the right way. We can say that owning any model of the Rolls-Royce Wraith meets anyone’s expectations in that category. The interior is truly another world with a panoramic glass roof that mimics a star-filled night sky.
And like The Rock’s presence, the Wraith is truly a powerful car. While it weighs in at more than 5,000 pounds, it can reportedly go from 0 to 60 in about 4.4 seconds. Like his career, the Wraith packages power, fashion and glam all into one.
18.) Queen Latifah – Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe
Entertainment extraordinaire Queen Latifah knows how to ride around in style. Her Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe displays this to the utmost extent with rearward opening doors and has the trademark retractable hood ornament — also called the “Spirit of Ecstasy” — which comes with many other models, too.
The interior is also impressive on all fronts. It has a very elegant framework which mixes both handmade hardwood material with stainless steel throughout the cabin. For a woman nominated for an Oscar with impressive talent, we wouldn’t expect any less.
17.) Blac Chyna – Rolls-Royce Wraith
Many moms get a dependable, economical minivan for the kids and family. Not Blac Chyna. In 2016, she dropped six figures on a Rolls-Royce Wraith. According to the Daily Mail, she celebrated by recording herself driving back from the dealership via Snapchat.
We’re just glad she was able to make it home safe in that LA traffic.
Like other Wraith models, hers has a fiber optic roof that simulates a starry night sky, which is comprised of 1,340 fiber optic strands.
16.) David Beckham – Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead
Retired soccer superstar David Beckham’s Rolls-Royce Drophead model mimics his casual yet elegant style. It’s also customized with his “23” number inscribed on the leather seats. This model has many fun features to it, too.
For the wealthiest soccer player ever, we would expect nothing less. It certainly delivers with its smooth V-12 engine with 452-horsepower and Savini-forged wheels. Beckham has a fleet of other cars, too, including a Ferrari, Audi, Bentley, Aston Martin and more.
15.) Rick Ross – Maybach 57
Like his lyrics, the Maybach 57 oozes sleek power and fluidity. So you could say Rick Ross truly is “hustlin’” in his lavish lifestyle. The rapper has quite the eye-catching toy with a powerful engine that will even impress other owners in the ultra-luxury car market.
Ross seems to be pretty infatuated with the car, especially since he named his music brand after the company, Maybach Music Group. He’s also claimed he thought the price of it will soar, after it was discontinued in 2013. Only time will tell once Ross decides to sell his version.
14.) Jay Leno – Mercedes SLR McLaren
While he’s been out of the spotlight since his departure from late night television, that hasn’t stopped Jay Leno from growing his massive car collection. Rumor has it he prefers vintage ones, and has more than 130 rides. One of his confirmed, expensive ones is the snazzy Mercedes SLR McLaren.
One of the features that set this model apart from many others is its astonishing handling around thin-tight turns. One of the more impressive feats from a performance perspective is the top speed—a whopping 208 mph. Who knew Leno was such a thrill-seeker?
13.) Nicolas Cage – Ferrari Enzo
You may know Nicolas Cage most famously from National Treasure, but let’s not forget when he showed his love for sweet rides in Gone in 60 Seconds. Cage has a special affection for Ferraris, specifically the Enzo, despite critics’ harsh words for the luxury whip.
Bloomberg Businessweek put it in the “Fifty Ugliest Cars of the Past 50 Years,” and others have labeled it “too flashy.” Unfortunately, Cage ended up having to sell this car to pay off his tax debts. Maybe it’ll take a Gone in 60 Seconds 2 to get him that ride back.
12.) Jerry Seinfeld – Porsche 959
Jerry Seinfeld likes to keep busy in his post stand-up comedy days by driving popular celebrities around in fancy cars for his Netflix series, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. We can’t say we blame him, but that stokes enough pressure to make sure the cars are of high-caliber.
Well, his Porsche 959 delivers that and much more. For starters, it is incredibly fast, going from 0 to 60 mph in about 3.6 seconds. Good luck to anyone trying to hold a conversation while Seinfeld has his foot to the floor in this beauty.
11.) Kanye West – Lamborghini Aventador
For someone who either in the news for some controversial reason or giving his kids obscure names, Kanye West sure likes his cars to be fast. According to motortrends.com, the Lamborghini Aventador is one of the fastest cars in the industry with a zero to 60 acceleration of 2.5 seconds for the 2019 model.
After West was gifted the car, however, it was accidentally crushed by electric gates on his property as it was delivered to his residence. Rumor has it, a driver was tasked with the chore as Kanye was in New York on business. We hope he got it fixed with little cost!
10.) Beyoncé – Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II Convertible
The combined net worth of Beyoncé and Jay Z probably surpasses the GDP of a few small countries alone. So we’re not surprised Beyoncé owns a Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II Convertible, as it’s merely a drop in the bucket to her expenses.
As far as features go, this luxury vehicle is pretty modest in how it performs, since it’s mainly known for being a flashy city car. It seldom reaches speed of more than 100 mph and takes about 10 seconds to reach 60 mph. But for what it lacks in performance, it more than makes up for in style.
Price: $1 million
9.) Steven Tyler – Hennessey Venom GT Spyder
Here is where we wade into the rarest of the rare. For all of Steven Tyler’s music accolades, owning a Hennessey Venom GT Spyder might be even more impressive. It’s set many records, including in 2016, when it notched a top speed of a whopping 265.7 mph!
While this didn’t technically qualify under Guinness Book of World Record standards, the Spyder is still recognized as one of the fastest convertibles in the world.
Price: $1.1 million
8.) Samuel Eto’o – Aston Martin One-77
With a seamlessly fitted V12 engine and a scorching top speed of about 220 mph, the Aston Martin One-77 is certainly a robust vehicle suited for one of the best African soccer players of all time. Samuel Eto’o takes great pride in this one, though he reportedly owns a host of other cars.
It is truly a rarity among its kind, with only 77 produced as it was discontinued in 2012. At one point, the model was touted as the “the most powerful production naturally aspirated engine in the world” according to AstonMartin.com.
Price: $1.6 million
7.) Simon Cowell – Bugatti Veyron
Who would’ve known former American Idol judge Simon Cowell had good taste in cars? Well, it turns out he does; and he knows his stuff, too. The Bugatti Veyron comes with many customization options, some of which Cowell uses to his advantage. In this case, he has a black on black Veyron, making it one of the few of its kind.
The engine is in a league of its own, too. It’s a 8.0-liter turbo quad W-16, with a top speed of about 267 mph. Many parts of the interior also feature chrome garnish and grille. Imagine making a career from demoralizing would-be singers and riding around in this bad boy.
Price: $1.7 million
6.) Flo Rida – Golden Bugatti Veyron
Perhaps the most showy, flashy — literally — car on this list, the Golden Bugatti Veyron is owned by rapper Flo Rida. Apparently, owning a traditional one wasn’t enough. Initially, he was rumored to have a white chrome Veyron, which apparently wasn’t flashy enough.
He also allegedly added golden plates, which are speculated to be 24 karat gold. It seems like his past hit songs are paying dividends, as his car looks to be worth more than whatever Fort Knox has locked up inside.
Price: $1.7 million
5.) Birdman – Bugatti Veyron 16.4
With a net worth of more than $170 million, we’re not too surprised of Birdman’s Bugatti Veyron or his impressive car collection in general. It’s said the rapper also owns other highly valued cars including the Maybach Landaulet, and the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter.
It’s rumored he once owned another coveted high-class car in the Maybach Excelero, but the Veyron is special in that it is purported to be the fastest “permitted” car on the road with a top speed of 253 mph. It’s probably safe to say the Veyron is his favorite.
Price: $2.4 million
4.) Tom Brady – Bugatti Veyron Super Sport
One would think NFL superstar Tom Brady would be paying for his cars on his own. But when your wife is a top tier model, you don’t have to. Brady’s Bugatti Veyron Super Short was actually a gift from Gisele Bundchen. Together, the two have a combined net worth of more than $580 million.
Overall, this purchase was probably just a drop in the bucket. The multiple Super Bowl winner also owns a fleet of Audis, but his black Bugatti is his favorite. Apparently, that’s what happens when your model wife is making twice as much as you are.
Price: $3 million
3.) Floyd Mayweather – Koenigsegg CCXR Trevitaand
Getting into the upper echelon of prized cars, Floyd Mayweather’s is no exception. Aside from owning a private jet, the retired boxer also owns a Koenigsegg CCXR Trevitaand, which is unique in its own right with a beautiful white carbon fiber body work.
It’s definitely not low tier in the performance category either. It goes from 0 to 60 miles per hour in about 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of approximately 254 miles per hour or more. We would expect nothing less from a go-getter like Mayweather.
Price: $4.8 million
2.) Ralph Lauren – Vintage Bentley Blower
Among Ralph Lauren’s impressive car collection, the Vintage Bentley Blower from 1929 stands out in his massive garage. Mainly built for speed and charm, the Bentley Blower was ahead of its time, too.
Despite totaling a whopping sum of $5 million, this is nothing to Lauren, who has an estimated net worth of $5.5 billion. As for the Bentley Blower, this is known by many sports car lovers as one of the all-time best.
Price: $5 million
1.) Jay Z – Maybach Exelero
Jay Z and Beyoncé rightly have an armada of high-luxury cars. This makes sense, given their conquest of the pop entertainment industry. As for the Maybach Exelero, the priority becomes luxury and style over performance–something that Beyoncé’s Rolls-Royce shares a commonality.
The car, which looks like something out of a Batman movie, has an accolade that sets itself apart from others. Specifically, it’s basically a high-performing limo. It has a top speed of about 218 mph and hits 60 mph in about 4.4 seconds.
Price: $8.8 million
