Celebrities like to drop big bucks on luxury items, and they especially love to ride in style. Here are 5 of the most over-the-top (and expensive) celebrity cars that the rich and famous roll around in.
1. Kim Kardashian – Ferrari F430
Price: $186, 925 Kim Kardashian’s fame initially sparked from her reality show. Since then, she has branched out and made money from several endorsements. She put her earnings towards this popular Italian sports car. After 20% down, the payments average $3,800 per month.
2. Paris Hilton – Bentley GT Continental
Price: $175,000, plus customization Although this car starts at a high price, Paris Hilton took it a step further. She customized this car to include a pink exterior, interior, wheels, and grill. In addition to her ultra-feminine car customizations, she ordered a $285,000 diamond-encrusted dashboard. Take that Barbie!
3. Jay Z – Maybach Exelero
Price: $8,000,000 That’s right – Jay Z drives an $8 million car, also known as the most expensive car in the world. This famous rapper has enough money in the bank to purchase this slick, German manufactured coupe. Even weighing 2.66 tons, this car can reach 218 miles per hour and accelerate from 0-60 in 4.4 seconds. Looks like his talent has paid off!
4. David Beckham – Rolls Royce Phantom
Price: $407,000 The above price does not include the thousands of dollars extra that Beckham put into this polished vehicle. Some of the custom additions include a complete black exterior, cream leather interior, a TV-DVD unit built into the front seatback, 24” Savini Forged wheels, and the number “23” embroidered into the seats. This 2008 vehicle was recently put on the market for the price of $400,000.
5. Kanye West – Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4
Price: $750,000 Not only did Kim Kardashian buy herself a luxury automobile, she also bought one for her boyfriend, Kanye West. This purchase for the rapper was as birthday gift. The “Aventador” model, named after a bull, contains a motor that can go from 0-60 in 2.9 seconds and can reach a high speed of over 200 miles per hour. Happy birthday Kanye!
