The 20 most expensive cars owned by famous rappers (part 1)
Music artists usually make a decent amount of money, especially if they become famous. This allows them to buy the expensive cars but it is the famous rappers who tend to live life to the fullest because getting a luxurious car is a way for them to make a statement. These are 10 from the most expensive cars owned by rappers:
1. Rick Ross – Maybach 57S
Mercedes, owned German automaker Maybach, is the automotive brand that produces some of the most expensive luxury cars in the world. Not many automotive brands can compete with the luxury quality of these vehicles, so quite a few rappers on this list own one of these.
Rick Ross seems to be a big fan of Maybach because he owns not one but two Maybach Coupes. His Maybach 57 S cost almost $430,000 in 2008 and the price is expected to reach higher since the cars are now discontinued.
2. Soulja Boy – Bentley Continental
Bentley, a British automotive brand, has always been among the top preferences of hip-hop artists. Unlike Rolls Royce, vehicle selections offered by Bentley feature sleek curves and exotic looks.
This is exactly why Soulja Boy, the frontman for Stacks on Deck Entertainment (SODMG), owns one of these and he loves this red car as much as a mother loves her child. The Bentley Continental starts at a mere $175,000 and prices only go up from there depending on how much bling you want to add.
3. T.I – Bentley Mulsanne
The Mulsanne of Bentley is believed to offer a better experience than its rival, the Rolls Royce. While the Bentley Continental starts on the lower end of the extremely rich, the Mulsanne starts at around $300,000.
When buying this car, rapper T.I had the car completely hand built, every single feature was crafted and customized according to his liking. With all the customizations he got done, the car cost him a whopping $400,000 in final.
4. Kanye West – Lamborghini Aventador
Lamborghini is a top performance car brand and almost everyone acknowledges that once they see it. The brand has produced some of the most beautiful and amazing cars in the past decades, including the Aventador in 2011.
One Lamborghini Aventador in matte-black belongs to famous hip-hop star Kanye West, who isn’t afraid to speak his mind or show off his car. The car quoted costing a mind-blowing $750,000 was a gift by his wife Kim Kardashian.
5. Jay-Z – Pagani Zonda Roadster
Besides some of the well-known brands from Italia such as Lamborghini and Ferrari, Pagani is another Italian automotive manufacturer creating beautiful and fast performance supercars. The brand has created some of the most amazing and expensive supercars in recent history.
Rapper Jay-Z is one of the proud owners of a Pagani Zonda Roadster, which costs $1.9 million. Only 25 of Zonda Roadster were ever made which makes this car is super rare.
