When it comes to the world of celebrity, a flashy car is one sure sign that you’ve made it big. In fact, some stars spend more money on a single vehicle than many of their fans would earn in a lifetime. From socialites and sportsmen to film stars and fashion designers, here’s a look at 40 famous faces who own costly motors.
40. Shaquille O’Neal – Lamborghini Gallardo (approx. $200,000)
As you’d expect from a man who stands at 7ft 1in tall, Shaquille O’Neal had to modify the Lamborghini Gallardo he added to his mammoth collection of cars during his NBA years. The basketball legend needed to have both the windows and roof elongated before he could sit behind the wheel. These structural changes reportedly set Big Diesel back $200,000.
39. Joe Johnson – Ford F650 ($200,000)
Former NBA star Joe Johnson proved that he’s not your average basketball player in 2019 with his unusual choice of vehicle. That’s right, the ex-Atlanta Hawk made sure that everyone knows when he’s in town with the purchase of a massive pimped-up truck. And thanks to various customized features, his beloved Ford F650 set him back a cool $200,000.
38. Britney Spears – Maserati GranTurismo ($200,000)
Britney Spears gave a shout-out to both Maserati and Lamborghini in 2013 hit “Work B****.” But it’s the former’s GranTurismo model that she ended up splashing money on two years later. In fact, the superstar may well have two. Yes, Spears has been seen driving both a black and a white version of the Italian supercar.
37. Missy Elliott – Aston Martin V12 Vanquish ($294,950)
Sure, Missy Elliott might not yet have been given the honor of performing a James Bond theme. But she still has more in common with 007 than most of her musical superstar peers. The rapper/producer owns the very same car that Pierce Brosnan drives in 2002’s Die Another Day, the Aston Martin V12 Vanquish. This is just one of at least 15 vehicles that the “Get Ur Freak On” hitmaker has in her garage.
36. David Beckham – Ferrari 612 Scaglietti ($300,000)
David Beckham decided to honor the birth of his fourth child and first daughter in 2011 the only way that a multi-millionaire soccer superstar can. By purchasing a flashy new sports car worth approximately $300,000. Yes, the former England international gifted himself a Ferrari 612 Scaglietti following Harper Seven’s arrival. And the vehicle was also emblazoned with the number in her name.
35. Manny Pacquaio – Ferrari 458 Italia ($309,000)
Boxer Manny Pacquaio made sure his Christmas was a merry one in 2011 when he gifted himself a Ferrari 458 Italia. The Midnight-Black addition to his vast car collection set him back a mighty $309,000. But for that price, the world champion was able to reach speeds of 200 miles per hour even faster than his knockout punches.
34. Post Malone – Hennessey VelociRaptor 6×6 (approx. $349,000)
It seems unlikely that any other celebrity has the same vehicle as Post Malone. Instead of the usual sleek and swanky sports car, the chart-topper owns as a super-sized 6×6 truck with the imposing name of Hennessey VelociRaptor. Costing at least $349,000, the “Circles” hitmaker’s distinctive ride also boasts half a dozen off-road tires and 20-inch wheels.
33. Queen Latifah – Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe ($370,000)
Queen Latifah getting her Mercedes-Benz stolen in 2016 proved to be a blessing in disguise. Yes, although the rapper/actress got it back, the incident inspired her to look for a new dream motor. And she found it in the shape of a Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe. The Chicago star can apparently be seen regularly blasting out her favorite hip-hop anthems while driving her costly ride around Los Angeles.
32. Dr. Dre – Cadillac Escalade ESV ($400,000)
Dr. Dre’s Cadillac Escalade ESV initially only set the hip-hop icon back just under $100,000. But the former N.W.A. rapper is renowned for pimping his rides to the extreme. And after making several customized changes, the same all-black model is reportedly now worth more than four times the amount he paid for it.
31. Blac Chyna – Rolls Royce Wraith ($400,000)
Style icon Blac Chyna has never been afraid to think outside the box. And the Rolls Royce Wraith upon which she spent $400,000 in 2016 certainly isn’t your average motor. You see, not only did the model give the powerful vehicle a distinctive pink trim, but she also kitted it out with a fiber-optic starlight roof which essentially makes the interior resemble a planetarium.
30. Nicki Minaj – Lamborghini Aventador ($400,000)
From her outlandish hair to the title of her debut album, Nicki Minaj is obsessed with all things pink. It stands to reason, then, that her very own car would come equipped in the same bright color. The urban star spent $400,000 on a dazzling Lamborghini Aventador fit for an oversized Barbie doll.
29. P. Diddy – Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe ($400,000)
Few have exemplified the high-flying megabucks rap lifestyle more than P. Diddy. The hip-hop legend has an enviable collection of luxury vehicles, including a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder and a Maybach 57. His costliest car, however, is a white-colored version of the Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe: the British company’s priciest model, and one which comes with a pretty hefty price tag of $400,000.
28. Marshawn Lynch – Lamborghini Aventador Roadster ($400,000)
While shooting a movie in Oakland in 2014, Marshawn Lynch parked his Lamborghini Aventador Roadster in between his very own pair of velvet ropes.

27. Justin Bieber – Lamborghini Aventador Coupe ($421,145)
You sure couldn’t miss Justin Bieber’s Lamborghini Aventador Coupe out on the road. Firstly, the former tween idol decided to have his model painted an eye-catching aqua. And then in 2018 he reportedly asked Joe Termini, an artist pal, to tag the driver’s door with the words “Cash Only.” Yes, the mind boggles.
26. Rick Ross – Maybach 57S Coupe ($430,000)
Rick Ross is such a fan of Maybach cars that he even named his record label imprint after the German manufacturer. And the larger-than-life rapper is reportedly the only driver out there with more than one Maybach Coupe, too. He splashed out on this 57S model for a cool $430,000 in 2012.
25. Cardi B – Lamborghini Aventador ($550,000)
The Cardi B household certainly isn’t short of horsepower. In 2018 the rapper celebrated the birth of her daughter Kulture by spending more than half a million dollars on a new baby blue Lamborghini Aventador. Not to be outdone, her husband Offset then splashed out for the same model in a fetching lime green.
24. Simon Cowell – Jaguar Eagle Speedster ($600,000)
Simon Cowell appears to love cars almost as much as crushing talent show contestants’ dreams. The sharp-tongued media mogul has an impressive collection of vehicles including a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder and Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud. But with a price tag of $600,000, it’s the Jaguar Eagle Speedster which remains his flashiest.
23. Nicolas Cage – Ferrari Enzo ($670,000)
Nicolas Cage is used to putting the pedal to the metal on the big screen in the likes of Gone in 60 Seconds and Drive Angry. But he’s also an avid motorhead in real life. Yes, before his career hit the skids, he paid $670,000 for a Ferrari named after the company’s Italian founder Enzo.
22. Jerry Seinfeld – Porsche 959 ($700,000)
Jerry Seinfeld made an astonishing amount of money from his eponymous ’90s sitcom, of which a fair chunk has gone into his garage. The star has bought a staggering 46 Porsches over the years, including the $700,000 959 model above. And he gets to show them all off on his hit web series, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.
21. Beyoncé – Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud Convertible ($1 million)
You’d expect a star of Beyoncé’s stature to be chauffeured everywhere. But in 2013 she was actually pictured ferrying around her family on a break in the Hamptons. You can’t blame the multiple Grammy winner for wanting to get behind the wheel, though, when she has a $1 million Silver Cloud Rolls-Royce Convertible at her disposal.
20. Drake – Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet ($1 million)
Prolific chart-topper Drake has almost as many cars as he does number one hits. The Canadian’s most expensive motor is said to be the Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet for which he paid $1 million in 2019. And this wasn’t just any ordinary Mercedes-Maybach. In fact, at the time of purchase this model was reportedly the only one in the whole of North America.
19. Rowan Atkinson – BMW 328 Roadster (approx. $1 million)
Rowan Atkinson may drive around in a clapped-out Mini while playing Mr. Bean. But in real life, his motoring pride and joy is a little more luxurious. The actor actually has a vast collection of Aston Martins and Rolls-Royces in his garage. But perhaps the most impressive is the classic 1939 BMW 328 Roadster worth approximately $1 million.
18. Kanye West – Prombron Iron Diamond ($1.2 million)
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian made sure that no expense was spared to protect their young daughter in 2013. Just months after North was born, the pair spent an incredible $2.4 million on two Prombron Iron Diamonds. The armored vehicles are designed to be both bomb- and bulletproof. Even more impressively, they can also win out against rocket-launched grenades!
17. Travis Scott – Maybach G650 Landaulet ($1.6 million)
Following the success of his Astroworld LP and Netflix doc Look Mom I Can Fly, Travis Scott had no doubt earned the right to splash the cash. And in September 2019 he did just that on an exclusive vehicle worth a colossal $1.6 million. Yes, the rapper is now a proud owner of the Maybach G650 Landaulet, of which only 99 exist.
16. Samuel Eto’o – Aston Martin One-77 ($1.64 million)
Samuel Eto’o is renowned almost as much for his flashy taste in cars as his sublime skills on the soccer field. The former Chelsea forward has the kind of collection that would make British Top Gear TV presenter Jeremy Clarkson green with envy. And his most exclusive ride is undoubtedly the Aston Martin One-77. Yes, as its name suggests, it’s one of only 77 in the entire world.
15. Flo Rida – Bugatti Veyron ($1.7 million)
The Bugatti Veyron has become the ride of choice in the hip-hop world. But Flo Rida has made sure that his own stands out from the rest with several remodels. In 2012 he wrapped the car in a reflective chrome and then just a year later changed it to a garish gold. Pictures of the latter development then trended on Twitter and it’s fair to say the reaction wasn’t exactly positive.
14. Lil Uzi Vert – Bugatti Grand Sport ($1.7 million)
Lil Uzi Vert got a bargain when he bought his Bugatti Grand Sport in 2019 from another major star for his 25th birthday. That’s right, the rapper spent $1.6 million less than the famously flashy boxer Floyd Mayweather did at the garage several years previously. And he was able to put his own stamp on the vehicle at a relatively low cost, too. His custom wrap set him back just $10,000.
13. Tom Brady – Bugatti Veyron Super Sport ($1.7 million)
What else could star quarterback Tom Brady splash his NFL money on than a vehicle dubbed Super Sport? Yes, the footballer owns the Bugatti Veyron model which boasts a speed of over 250 miles per hour! And rather surprisingly, it’s a very slightly more environmentally-friendly vehicle, too. Yes, the model in question has an exterior made entirely out of carbon fiber.
12. Birdman – Bugatti Veyron ($2 million)
Birdman appears to have a need for speed as big as his need for tattoos. The heavily inked rapper’s pride and joy is undoubtedly the Bugatti Veyron he purchased for no less than $2 million. Toni Braxton’s other half not only showed off the world’s fastest convertible in a 2010 video, but he also – rather generously – once let Justin Bieber borrow it.
11. The Game – Bugatti Veyron ($2.2 million)
In 2012 The Game also decided to get in on the Bugatti Veyron action, snapping up his own luxurious set of wheels with a little help from VH1. The rapper, who has become renowned for blinging up his array of motors, spent $2.2 million of his hard-earned cash on the vehicle. It also came in the favorite colors – black and yellow – of his one-time collaborator Wiz Khalifa.
10. The Rock – Pagani Huayra ($2.4 million)
Don’t be fooled by the rather humble Ford F-150 pickup that The Rock regularly shows off on social media. You see, the star also has a super-luxurious ride more befitting of a Hollywood action hero. Yes, the man also known as Dwayne Johnson owns a Pagani Huayra worth $2.4 million. And rather appropriately for a star of the Fast and Furious franchise, its torque has the “brute force of an airplane taking off.”
9. Lil Wayne – Bugatti Veyron ($2.7 million)
Rapper Lil Wayne also joined the exclusive Bugatti Veyron club when he paid $2.7 million for his set of wheels during the height of his success. One can only assume that the hip-hop entrepreneur pimped his ride to the max. And to prove just how much he loved the ultra-exclusive sports car, he even named a freestyle track in its honor.
8. Kylie Jenner – Bugatti Chiron ($3 million)
As a member of the most famous reality TV dynasty in the world, you’d expect Kylie Jenner to possess a fine set of wheels. And the youngest of the clan doesn’t disappoint. In 2019 she proudly showed off the latest addition to her impressive car collection, a Bugatti Chiron worth $3 million. Unfortunately for the socialite, this didn’t go down well with many of her fans, who believed she was flaunting her wealthy status.
7. 50 Cent – Bugatti Chiron ($3 million)
The Bugatti Chiron that Curtis Jackson treated himself to in the late ’10s was just a little more expensive than his more familiar moniker. In fact, the Bugatti Chiron in question set the rapper/actor known as 50 Cent back a whopping $3 million. For that price, the star can get from 0 to 60mph in just over two seconds.
6. Floyd Mayweather – Rolls Royce Phantom Limousine ($3.8 million)
Floyd Mayweather did once own one of the rarest super-expensive celebrity cars around. But the boxer sold the Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita for which he paid nearly $5 million in 2017. The car enthusiast was able to console himself with the fact he still had a dozen other machines at his disposal. And this included a Rolls Royce Phantom Limousine worth a whopping $3.8 million.
5. Jay Z – Maybach Exelero ($8 million)
Although he destroyed a Maybach 57 Sedan in the video for his Kanye West collaboration “Otis,” Jay Z was presumably a little more respectful with the manufacturer’s Exelero model. The rapper paid a staggering $8 million for the Batmobile lookalike. And remarkably, the car can reach speeds of up to 218mph.
4. Jay Leno – McLaren F1 ($12 million)
We could almost fill this entire list with the contents of Jay Leno’s garage. The legendary talk show host has amassed an astonishing collection worth roughly $50 million over the years. His most treasured vehicle, though, is undoubtedly the McLaren F1. Leno once told CNN it’s the car he’d rescue first from a disaster. No wonder when you learn that at auction it can fetch up to $12 million.
3. Cristiano Ronaldo – Bugatti La Voiture Noire ($18.9 million)
Cristiano Ronaldo has never been the most shy and retiring type of soccer player. So it’s little surprise that the Portuguese international owns one of the most expensive and exclusive cars in the world. The star showed off his Bugatti La Voiture Noire, one of only ten in existence, on Instagram after guiding Juventus to the Serie A title.
2. Nick Mason – Ferrari 250 GTO ($25 million)
Best known for playing the drums in prog rock giants Pink Floyd, Nick Mason forked out $25 million for his dream vehicle. But it wasn’t a flashy new model that caught the musician’s eye. No, it was the undisputed classic renowned for its high performance and vintage design, the Ferrari 250 GTO.
1. Ralph Lauren – Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic ($40 million)
Avid car collector Ralph Lauren has dozens of costly vehicles stored in his massive Bedford Hills complex, and doubtless many of them never see the light of day. However, the fashion designer has been much more willing to display his true pride and joy: a Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic. Costing a breathtaking $40 million, this sports car remains one of Bugatti’s most-coveted vehicles for its iconic design and high-performance capabilities.
