Top Celebrity Cars We’d All Love To Own
Posted: 10th May 2017
We all love celebrities. We may hate to admit it, but there are celebrities out there we love, respect and wish we had their lives as our own. This love is strongest when we see their cars. You can say whatever you like about the following celebrities on a personal level, but they have great taste in cars! (mostly).
Lewis Hamilton – 1967 Ford Shelby GT500CR
Lewis Hamilton is one of the most famous racing drivers in the world and the three-time World Champion enjoys that fact with a beautiful collection of cars. One of his favourite pride and joys is his Ford Shelby GT500CR in a gorgeous red. This model has the same body as the Shelby Mustang from the film Gone in Sixty Seconds, with Nicholas Cage. This car is built by Classic Recreations who specialise in building classic looking cars with modern mechanics.
He also owns a limited edition Ferrari LeFerrari and a Pagani Zonda. But Lewis will openly admit that his true love isn’t cars. It is motorbikes.
Justin Bieber – Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van
Justin Bieber has spent the Beliebers’ money well with his gorgeous collection of cars (minus that leopard print Audi R8). That being said, the most interesting item in Bieber’s garage isn’t the Ferraris, Porsches or the Range Rover. It is the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van.
Bieber uses this customised Sprinter van as a party bus for himself and his friends. In fact, it took West Coast Customs (one of America’s most famous vehicle custom shop) six weeks to fully customise the van to Bieber’s satisfaction. It appears to have been a success.
Nicki Minaj – Lamborghini Aventador
The Hip Hop artist is one of those celebrities you either love or hate in terms of what they do to their cars. Nicki is someone who loves to stand out and she needed a car that would help her do that. So she went for a Lamborghini Aventador.
Now anyone who knows anything about supercars knows the Aventador needs no help in standing out. But Nicki spent an additional $30,000 to get her Lamborghini coloured a particular pink hue. Safe to say it’s a marmite kind of car. You either love what Nicki did or you hate it.
Jay-Z – Maybach Exelero
Jay-Z has one of the most expensive and unique looking cars in the world in his garage. The Maybach Exelero cost Jay-Z a reported $8 million. Let us be honest about this, Jay-Z can afford any car he wants and he chose well with the Maybach Exelero.
It was developed in 2004 and was designed to be reminiscent of the sports cars of the 1930s. Under the bonnet, it has a large V12 Twin Turbo engine, which explains the long bonnet.
Simon Cowell – Bugatti Veyron
Simon Cowell is famous for being mean and he became rich by signing some of the biggest names in music. He has had plenty of cars over the years to match his successful years on television. Simon himself admits that he is competitive and always wants to be the best.
So, it is no surprise then that Simon has one of the most expensive cars in the world in his garage. The Bugatti Veyron has ruled supreme for a number of years now and this year, it will finally be replaced by the Bugatti Chiron and it won’t surprise us if Simon purchases one of those in the coming years.
Leonardo DiCaprio – Fisker Karma EV Speedster
You are likely aware that Leo is one of the most famous environmental activists in the world. He did, after all, use his eventual Oscar winning speech to talk about it. This means he felt a need to invest in technology that would reduce CO2 emissions and be cleaner for the planet. So, he invested in Fisker, a plug-in electric hybrid car company and actually purchased their Fisker Karma EV Speedster.
This full-sized luxury saloon had a 2.0-litre turbocharged Ecotec petrol engine and two 120kw motors that produced 479 N-m of torque each. These motors produced 201 bhp that powered the car up to a top speed of 125 mph and could sprint from 0-60 mph in 6.3 seconds.
