While some celebrities have enough cash to create some stupefying car collections, others have really awful taste when it comes to their rides. However, what most of them have in common is an endless stream of cash that allows them to splurge on rides the rest of us can only dream of.
What this means is that every year, we see celebrities buying the newest and greatest of supercars and luxury cars, and even better, modifying them in an attempt to stand out and promote their image, most often with ridiculous results.
The following list will focus on the most recent cars celebrities have added to their collections, and as you might expect, not all of them are in good taste.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s BRABUS 800
Brabus is Mercedes’ in-house tuning brand and they add a little bit of spice to already mental AMG models. Earlier this year, Cristiano’s girlfriend gifted him the coolest birthday present he could ask for in the form of a badass black BRABUS 800 earlier this year, based on the Mercedes-AMG G63. With the help of BRABUS, the G-Wagon now has 789 hp and 737 lb-ft of torque. After they have worked their magic, Ronaldo’s new and improved G-wagon is capable of zooming from 0-60 in just 4.1 seconds.
BRABUS also treated Cristiano’s ride to some exterior and interior modifications as well, like newly designed bumpers, a carbon fiber hood, rear spoiler, and a sexy set of 23-inch Monoblock Platinum Edition alloy wheels, and an interior fit for a member of the royal family.
Anuel’s Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport
Setting clear goals for yourself is extremely important – no matter how big or unrealistic they might be. Rapper, Anuel promised himself 5 years ago he’d one day own a bold Bugatti, and here we are.
Anuel recently bought this stunning white Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport worth approximately $2,000,000 and it has some incredible specs. Like the monstrous 1001 hp 8.0-liter W16 that propels the French hypercar to 253 mph and a transparent roof that can be removed for a topless Bugatti experience. He made his dream a reality.
Jay Leno’s Alfa Romeo 4C Spider 33 Stradale Tributo
There is no denying that Jay Leno is the king of crazy car collections, and he has sampled a very scarce Alfa earlier this year. The Alfa Romeo 4C Spider 33 Stradale Tributo is inspired by the racing legend Tipo Stradale 33 race car. And Jay felt on top of the world driving his it in Jay Leno’s Garage.
No mechanical changes were made between the normal 237 hp 4C and 33 Tributo, but it does come offered with a stunning Rosso Villa d’Este red paint job and satin gold-grey wheels. There were only 33 examples ever made, and each had a price tag of $80,000.
Post Malone’s Shelby F-150 Super Snake
The rockstar Post Malone has quite the car collection stashed away from the public that features gems like the Bugatti Chiron, Ford GT, Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster, and the most recent addition, Shelby F-150 Super Snake.
Every single prized possession is finished in stunning white color and some are complemented in hints of black. Post’s Super Snake is a 2-door pickup truck meant for the track. Inhabiting a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 that shouts out 750 hp, the performance pick-up truck will jolt you back in your seat when pressing the gas pedal. Allegedly Post Malone bought the 1st one that left the factory, VIN001.
Justin Bieber’s Rolls-Royce Wraith
Justin Bieber is infamous for his unique taste in cars – especially modified ones. This time the team at West Coast Customs went and transformed his classy Rolls Royce Wraith into a 2-tone silver and grey futuristic spaceship-looking limousine for 4.
West Coast Customs didn’t just make some exterior changes to the car but adapted the interior to fit the spaceship aesthetic too. Bieber’s Rolls was not all his idea but was rather inspired by the marque’s Vision Next 100 concept, also known as the 103EX.
Kevin Hart’s 1970 Dodge Charger with 1000 hp “Hellraiser”
Kevin Hart is one of the world’s most talented comedians and in the past few years, he has made a massive impact on the automotive community with his growing car collection. One of his most noteworthy rides was a 720 hp Plymouth Barracuda, but this that much power Hart, unfortunately, lost control and crashed.
But, no matter, the fearless comedian went and picked up himself an even more ludicrous ride. The 1000 hp carbon fiber 1970 Dodge Charger, nicknamed “HellraIser” built by Speedkore is now tamed by Kevin Hart.
Joe Rogan’s Gunther Werks Porsche 911
Gunther Werks specializes in taking old Porche 911s and completely reworking them from top to bottom. In January this year, Joe Rogan bought one of Gunther Werks’ Porsche 993 creations that were limited to only 25 models.
It featured a new powerful 4.0-liter flat-six engine from Rothsport that pumped out 431 hp and 312 lb-ft of torque, an upgraded Getrag G50 stick shift, and a completely customized interior and exterior. Joe Rogan decided to order his new 911 with a black exterior with subtle, but striking red accents that complement the swooping taillight.
Manny Khoshbin’s Hermes McLaren Speedtail
Manny Khosbin has a monumental car collection that already features two Hermes vehicles, the Bugatti Chiron and Pagani Huyara, and he recently made a third addition to the Hermes lineup – the McLaren Speedtail.
The British hypercar has a top speed above 250 mph and costs around $2.25 million, but Manny paid a hefty penny extra for Hermes and McLaren to join forces to create the only Mclaren Speedtail Hermes edition in the world. Rumors have it that Manny’s costs around the $250 million ballpark.
Kim Kardashian’s Fur-Coated Lamborghini Urus
It’s official – the Kardashians have too much money and spend it on too many fake enhancements. Kim K bought the Italian-made performance SUV that has a sticker price of more than $200,000 just to go and plaster fake fur in every single corner inside and out.
What once was the coolest SUV on the market, the Lamborghini Urus is now a spectacle on wheels drenched in fake wool. Kim tried to right her wooly-Urus mistake at least, by buying a one-of-a-kind widebody Lamborghini Mansory.
Drake’s Rolls Royce Cullinan by Chrome Hearts
Rolls Royce is the pinnacle of luxury and it oozes the word expensive. The rapper, Drake went and got his new Cullinan tailor-made by the fashion band Chrome Hearts to emphasize the level of luxury the interior has and of course to show off his wealth. The interior looks like something out of a 1920s Gatsby-era Dracula’s living room judging by all the quilted black leather.
When paying attention to the small details you’ll see that Chrome Hearts replaced the Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament with crosses, and put 24-inch chrome wheels with the words “F**k You” on the outer lip. On the exterior of the Certified Lover Boy’s pitch black Rolls, Chrome Hearts attached the carbon fiber hood, new front bumper, and lots of evil-looking trim. This is one of the most tastefully modified cars any celebrity has ever owned.
