The 10 most expensive cars owned by famous rappers (part 2)
- Birdman – Maybach 62 Laundaulet
We’ve already established that many hip-hop stars love Maybach and some even named their record labels after it. This is the reason why Birdman, one of the top car collectors in rap, who has claimed to own over 50 luxury vehicles, bought a Maybach 62 Laundaulet.
His total gloss white car includes a retractable rear hood so that can be lowered to let the breeze in. The car also includes retractable privacy screens in the rear for the rapper to relax while driving. This luxury vehicle costs an incredible $1.4 million.
- Flo Ride – Bugatti Veyron
The Bugatti Veyron with a top speed of 268 mph is one of the fastest cars in the world. It also carries one of the highest price tags of cars with the base model costing 1.7 million dollars. It is said that it would be much cheaper to maintain a private jet than to maintain a Veyron.
However, this doesn’t prevent Flo Ride from buying this super expensive car. He even went a step further by getting a custom chrome finish for the car. And in case you are wondering, the wheels of his car are 24K gold plated as well.
- 50 Cent – Lamborghini Murcielago
The Murcielago, often referred to as “Mercy” in rap songs, is one of Lamborghini’s flagship cars. It is also the predecessor to the now famous Aventador. At the time, its base model with Lamborghini signature scissor doors, a 6.5-liter V12 engine, and a whole set of bragging rights cost around $350,000.
Only 4,099 of Murcielago were produced and one of them was bought by rapper 50 Cent. He gave his precious car a custom paint job several times. In addition, the rapper once even posted a video of him loading $2 million cash in the car’s trunk.
- Akon – Spyker C8 Aileron
Spyker is a lesser-known Dutch sports car manufacturer but the brand has one of the most beautiful and uniquely designed cars in the world. One example is the C8 Ailero, a compact coupe powered by a 4.2-liter Audi V8 engine.
Akon, a five-time Grammy nominated rapper, got one C8 Ailero which is customized with Savini Forged SV-29 Centerlock wheels and a yellow interior. This is one of the favorites in Akon’s vehicles collection. The car normally costs $300,000 but as a result of its high demand, it now costs around $500,000.
- Will.I.am – McLaren Mp4-12C
British car manufacturer McLaren is a reputable brand of the automotive engineering world. They are famous for creating some of the best cars of any time including the McLaren F1, the world’s fastest car for more than a decade. Then the brand came out with the McLaren Mp4-12C which is quite successful as well.
It is owned by Will.I.am, a member of Black Eyed Peas. His car is decked out with a totally black exterior and brown leather seats.
