Golden Bugatti Veyron

The 17 Most Expensive Celebrity Cars of 2015

Marie Skillern| January 24, 2015

They’re hot, sleek, and most of all, the most expensive celebrity cars in the entertainment realm. With all the money celebrities have, perhaps, you can understand how they have the chance to drive these amazing machines.

When most of people are simply happy driving their Toyota, an affordable Nissan, or Ford, these ultra-rich Hollywood superstars spend hundreds of thousands and even millions of dollars to have one of these expensive cars in their garage.

While it is an illusion to some, celebrities enjoy driving from Ferrari, Veyron, to Maybach. You may consider it as a status symbol, but some stars, rappers and famous personalities mark it as ‘cool’. Do you ever wonder who owns these best celebrity cars?

Placing her in the last on the list, this reality TV celebrity may be spotted with her Bentley Continental GT, but by far, her Ferrari is the most expensive auto she ever has.

Other than a TV personality, she also appears in several product endorsements. Not to mention, with her own perfume collection and line of diet pills, who couldn’t afford to get herself a Ferrari F430? Think about making $3,800 each month, this car is not beyond possible to reach.

Consider this the latest addition to the Ferrari’s V-8 series. Kardashian may want to have the Prancing Horse in her garage so she got this one for herself.

Nothing much to say about the car’s performance – it’s outstanding. Its top speed of 186 mph, and the F430 Spider’s  483HP pushes pretty well. In fact, as you hammer second gear, in a matter of 3.6 seconds, this 4.3-liter monster hits 60 mph.

Doesn’t Hilton look cute on this pink custom-made Bentley GT Continental? Because of the heiress to the Hilton Hotels obsession with pink, her car had to get the full treatment. As a matter of fact, she enjoys matching her dress with her ride sometimes.

Rather than asking her family for a pricey Christmas present, she bought this car for herself when she was 27. Right after she bought the car, she took it to the West Coast Customs, where remodeling and customizing cars are their expertise.

In case you don’t have any idea what this remodeling company is, they are responsible for the number of people who have decided to pimp their ride. They are the people who took care of the MTV makeover, ‘Pimp my Ride’.

Since the reality TV star wanted her car to be special, topping it off, she ordered to have her dashboard to be diamond-encrusted. Perhaps, pink and diamond look good together. Not to mention, having her initials on the rims and the seats make it more distinctive.

Lucky for Hilton, there are only 300 of them being sold. Again, another V-8 automobile with a maximum speed of 188 mph is in Hilton’s garage.

The car leaps to a 60 mph in a matter of 3.9 seconds that leave many people drooling over. It may remain a fantasy to many. However, to an heiress, buying a gift worth a quarter million makes her more complete.

  1. P. Diddy

Maybach – $360,000

Perhaps, there is something between rappers and most expensive celebrity cars. Also known as Seon Combs, may not be the real owner of this black Maybach. The rapper bought it for his son, Justin, for his 16th birthday.

The rapper’s son not only got a brand new car, but a driver to escort and take him around while he doesn’t have his driver’s license yet. Well, this should be a one kind of a birthday present for him.

Maybach 62 can by synonymous for the most expensive celebrity homes. Think about this car as first class luxury and performance. Most owners consider this as a sitting lounge on wheels.

This unique luxury car has a top speed of 163 mph which would sound perfect for Diddy’s son as he gets around town. Any father just wants best for his son. And spending this amount of dollars is just enough.

  1. David Beckham

Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead – $407,000

With its top speed of 149 mph, the famous soccer player made his Rolls-Royce his ‘family’ car. As a matter of fact, you can see him drive his kids around with this Phantom.

You can often see Beckham cruising in the streets of Beverly Hills with his kids tagged along.

The car may have cost him almost half a million, but with all the customization including installing new set of wheels (custom built Savini Forged wheels) and accessories, driving this magnificent Phantom is still what the player loves.

The model name explains the car’s performance. The drop-top vehicle is ideally a 6.75 liter, V-12 engine. Combined with the ever familiar Rolls-Royce fashion, the entire auto completes the person holding the wheel.

  1. Rick Ross

Maybach 57 – $430,000

Unlike P Diddy, Ross chose to buy a Maybach 57. However, just as any man who loves cars, names and models become part of their lives.

Say for the rapper himself who discovered a name for his music group, a name after the car’s brand and nothing else. Truth is, he had Maybach in most of his rap songs.

While some people would call him William Leonard Roberts II, most recognize him as the American rapper Rick Ross. In fact, MTV named him the hottest MC in the Game. Ross was the first artist to sign the management company owned by P. Diddy.

If you consider Maybach cars as luxury, 57 would mean beyond performance and luxury. These cars are built by none other than Mercedes-Benz. At this point, you can think about massive engines that are powered by V-12, not to mention, twin-turbos.

With a 543hp powered vehicle, spiking the speedometer to its maximum 190 mph is smooth. So, you can determine the reasons why the rapper added it in most of his songs. The entire feature and performance makes the vehicle complete.

  1. Jay Leno

Who would dare to buy a car worth half a million? Only an avid car collector Leno himself would.

Here’s a little known fact about the famous talk show host; Did you know that he owns a 17,000 sq ft garage in his home? Not only does he have an SLR McLaren, but other super cars as well.

Leno is the host of the primetime talk show The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Who would have thought that a celebrity like the prominent ‘jaw’ owns a garage that houses extreme cars? His collection has lead him to open his own website ‘Jay Leno’s Garage’.

Who wouldn’t want to have a car with a top speed of 209 mph? Not to mention, a car that could accelerate to 60 mph in a matter of 3.6 seconds .

Taking a peek at his garage,  would make you understand Leno himself. After all, some people have always believed that cars identify someone’s personality.

  1. Nicholas Cage

Ferrari Enzo – $670,000

It’s time to meet the monster of Ferrari cars. The V-12 engine Ferrari Enzo has the ability to transform you into the king of the road.

Most probably, Cage himself wants to be one of the 399 owners (Ferrari only produced this number) who would have the chance to get hold of the wheel. This could be one of the reasons that could explain why this car costs this much.

No, it was not after he had his serious financial downfall that he bought this vehicle. He may have accrued debts, but you have to recall, he used to be one of the highest paying actors in Hollywood. That was when he got himself the Ferrari Enzo.

Again, this is another V-12 engine that could run up to 217 mph. In fact, in just a matter of 3.7 seconds, the car can accelerate up to a speed of 63 mph. So, you can imagine how your eyes water the moment you step on the gas.

  1. Jerry Seinfield

Porsche 959 – $700,000

Ah! The lovely Porsche 959. Believe it or not, there are only 337 units manufactured. Maybe, just maybe, you can start thinking about the reason why this car costs more than half a million.

Just as Jay Leno, Seinfield is also a collector of extreme autos. Truth is, he owns a huge impressive collection of Porsche cars. And yes, this is one of the largest names in the world.

Among his wide collection, his Porsche 959 is the centerpiece. It may be an eye candy once you hit the road, but sadly, you could not see Seinfield driving this vehicle since it didn’t pass the standard US emission test.

Probably, you will have to just imagine how it sweeps the street with its top speed of 195 mph. The world may be ‘perfect’ if you have the chance to step on the gas and notice that it would spike up to 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds.

  1. Kanye West

Early last year, Kanye’s  fans were buzzing about his car being crashed into his wife’s electrified gates. Who wouldn’t go crazy if that happens to a less than a month old Lamborghini Aventado that costs $750,000?

This Aventado was a present from Kim herself. Truly, looking for a birthday gift for a loved one is a difficult task. Good thing she was able to find the right and perfect one for Kanye.

She managed to buy a car finished in all black. And that means, it has to be black on the outside, black on the inside, not to mention, black on the wheels as well.

Who wouldn’t want to own a car with a top speed of 217 mph? Moreover, these kinds of monsters know how to accelerate and get to a 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds.

Kim Kardashian must have a good taste when it comes to giving presents to their loved ones.

  1. Simon Cowell

It seems that most famous celebrities would love to own a Bugatti Veyron, However, Simon Cowell can not only afford one, but he uses it as a daily driver.

Okay, so you may be seeing him as this ‘mean’ and cranky judge in a reality TV show, American Idol, but you never will you be able to see him like one the moment he sits on his car and puts his hands on the wheel.

With a Bugatti Veyron, who wouldn’t take it up to its maximum speed of 267 mph? In fact, it reaches  60 mph in a matter of 2.5 seconds.

Cowell may have owned the fastest car the world has ever known, he also has in his collection of toys for the big boys including Rolls-Royce Phantom (the same car David Beckham drives) and Ferrari.

You may have seen a lot of selfie photos of the rapper with his Veyron. As a rapper and CEO of Cash Money Records, who couldn’t afford to have a more specific model of a Bugatti Veyron that costs more than Simon Cowell’s Veyron.

Along with his estimated net worth of $160 million last year (Forbes), who wouldn’t be able to get the ride of his life? You would recognize how he loves cars the time when he made his name in the industry. He recorded a number of tracks and album collaboration with Lil Wayne (also a car enthusiast).

At this point, you may have realized with the number of photos of the rapper and his car that spread in social media, since this monster vehicle is one of the most expensive and the fastest cars on Earth.

Another 2 million dollar car is owned by the music artist 50 Cent.

Jayceon Terrel Taylor or The Game, as what most people recognize him of, gained wide-spread popularity when he teamed up with 50 Cent in the group G-Unit. Eventually the group went their separate ways after beef developed between 50 and the Game.

His Bugatti Veyron did in fact cost more than 50’s and comes in a eye catching yellow. Unfortunately, since the break up of the group, The Game has run into some financial problems.

However, he was a rising artist in 2000’s. As a matter of fact, he was a best-known rapper in the West Coast hip hop scene as he became Dr. Dre’s most notable proteges. That gave him the reason to own this one-in-a-million car.

Along with his fame and success, he received two nominations in the Grammy Awards as Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance for his single, ‘Hate it or Love it‘. Moreover, who would have thought that his album, ‘Doctor’s Advocate‘, would become the 2006 Best Hip Hop album in The New York Times.

Who could not forget the song, ‘Low’ featuring T-Pain which hit the first spot for 10 consecutive weeks in the US in 2008? That’s Tamar Lacel Dillard or Flo Rida as what most people know.

Other than taking most of his singles to the top in the music industry, he also made tracks collaborating with other artists including Jessica Mauboy, Alexandra Burke, and Olly Murs. With over 75 million downloads all over the world, that should prove how the people love his songs.

Along with his success, who couldn’t afford to have a gold car? Consider it another version, or should you say, a different kind of species. It was originally wrapped in chrome white before the rapper decided to paint it gold.

  1. Lil Wayne

Tha Carter III was the rapper’s sixth successful album to date. This album was released in 2008 with over a million copies sold in the United States in its first week.

Call it his passion, other than his love for his career, his love for Bugatti, the rapper even made a song of it. Obviously, the first time he saw and owns one, he fell in love with it.

There’s nothing more to driving in a sparkling black Bugatti Veyron on the streets with all eyes glued to your car.
