For most of us regular folk, cars are machines that get us from point A to point B. But what if you had all the money in the world to buy any car you ever dreamed of? And what if you wanted 5, 10, or 100 of them? Welcome to the wonderful world of the rich and famous. Their car collections range from fancy to downright ridiculous.
Have some fun looking through these celebrity cars. And enjoy the ride (pun intended)!
Jerry Seinfeld – Porsche 959, $1.8 Million
Jerry Seinfeld at one point held the record for owning the largest collection of Porsche vehicles alone with 47 in his possession! But he decided to sell 17 of those cars in 2016 for an amount between $28 and $32 million, donating most of the profits to charity. One of his most prized possessions is this Porsche 959 which is one of only 337 that exists in the world. Before Jerry auctioned off his cars, he had 150 in his collection. Fun fact: the garage where he stores all his cars cost him $1.4 million.
Ceelo Green – Auburn Speedster, $130K
CeeLo Green has done well for himself, considering he became an orphan at the age of 18. He has a net worth of $22 million. While he likes to spoil himself with expensive clothes and fancy cars, he also bought himself a vintage Auburn Speedster. The car was a clear sign of affluence back in the 20s and the 30s when the cars were originally made. Finding a restored Speedster today is quite rare, hence the price. But CeeLo need not worry about a measly $130,000.
Tracy Morgan — Ferrari Spyder, $272K
Actor and comedian Tracy Morgan is best known and loved for his Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock appearances. While Morgan is now able to purchase extravagant cars, his youth was anything but successful. He got married in high school and then dropped out, lost his father to AIDS, and welcomed his first child at a very young age. But despite all that, he hit the comedy jackpot and earned enough money to live in style. And that means affording this gorgeous red Ferrari Spyder. The car cost him a pretty penny at $272,700.
Dwight Howard – Ferrari FF, $301K
After joining the NBA in 2005, Dwight Howard has continued to be a basketball superstar. At just 33 years old, Howard has an alarming net worth of $140 million, so buying a $300,000 dollar car is not such a big expense for the athlete. The car is customized, featuring an all-red interior and blacked-out windows (obviously). I can only imagine what his car insurance payments are like. Not that he really cares though.
Jennifer Lopez – Bentley Continental GTC, $250K
Jennifer Lopez went far, from her modest beginning as the daughter of Puerto Rican immigrants in New York to become the multi-millionaire artist that she is. Jenny from the block prefers to drive around in her Bentley Continental GTC, a car known for its luxury, not its speed. And guess what? She has the same car in blue as well. For someone with a net worth of $380 million, a $250,000 car is something akin to pocket change.
Sylvester Stallone – Mercedes-Benz g550, $166K
I can’t say that I’m surprised that Sylvester Stallone, aka Rambo and Rocky, has a passion for cars. With decades of being the star of action films, he managed to amass a nice collection of cars which likely make up for a lot of his estimated $400,000,000 net worth. A few cars in his collection include his Bentley Continental GTC, a Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano, a Porsche Panamera, and an Aston Martin DBS. And then in 2016, he bought a $166K Mercedes-Benz G550.
But you know what IS surprising about Stallone? That he’s also a painter. See his and other celebrities’ hidden artwork here!
Ronda Rousey — Corvette C7 Stingray, $60K
Ronda Rousey is truly a force to be reckoned with. The MMA icon and legend is an incredible athlete, having earned herself a net worth of around $12 million. Having already made a name for herself in the UFC world at a young age of 32, she decided to start a car collection. She was seen driving around Hollywood in her cherry-red Chevy Corvette Stingray which was apparently for the ‘Entourage’ movie. The car couldn’t fit her or her personality more. For a rough price of $55-60k, you too can own this luxury car that can hit a top speed of 185 MPH.
Miley Cyrus – Maserati Quattroporte, $140K
According to Miley Cyrus, there’s no point in making money if you’re not spending money. And she likes to spend money on cars. And hey, I don’t blame her. She’s already got a small collection which includes a Mercedes-Benz ML 450 Hybrid, Porsche Cayenne, McLaren MP4 12C, Infiniti G35, and a Maserati Quattro Porte. It’s a luxury sports sedan that comes at a $140,000 price tag.
Nick Jonas – Shelby Mustang, $68K
Actor and singer Nick Jonas is as big into music as he is into muscle cars. He’s been spotted driving around in more than one car. He has a Dodge Challenger, Chevy Camaro, and a vintage Shelby Mustang worth $68,000. It looks like Jonas might be a little more conservative with his money than others on this list. After getting married to actress Priyanka Chopra, Jonas is more excited about their new home in Beverly Hills.
Michael B. Jordan – Honda Acura NSX Supercar, $156K
Actor Michael B. Jordan put his ‘Creed’ money to good use by buying this brand new Honda Acura NSX Supercar. The ‘Black Panther’ doesn’t only just buy amazing cars, he also likes to give back. To his parents, that is. He said that he wanted to give his parents a house, which is a dream that he’s been hoping to make come true for a while. So he finally bought his parents a Sherman Oaks home for $1.7 million. How sweet.
Bradley Cooper – Mercedes-Benz G500, $220K
Bradly Cooper is one of the highest-paid actors in Hollywood. But then he manages to keep a level head and stay balanced. When he’s not driving around in his Toyota Prius, he can be seen in his Mercedes-Benz G500. The $220,000 luxury SUV sits next to his two motorcycles: a Triumph Thruxton, a Ducati 1199, and an Aprilia Mana 850 GT ABS. I must say, those three vehicles next to a Prius is kind of funny. But I’m not mad it.
Katy Perry – Audi A5, $60K
Katy Perry may be the poster girl for bubblegum pop music, but her taste in cars is a little more varied. She owns a pink Smart car, which suits the bubblegum style. But she also has an Audi A5, which at $60,000 is not a significant amount for celebrities. In 2014, Katy also bought five electric cars from Fisker Karmas for her assistants. Apparently, being green is high on her priority list.
Next, you might be surprised by what Oprah Winfrey drives…
Oprah Winfrey – Volkswagen Beetle, $30K
While Oprah Winfrey, one of the richest people on the planet, does indeed own a Volkswagen Beetle (a $30,000 car), keep in mind that it’s just one of her many cars that she owns. She also owns a Bentley Continental GT (which costs about $200,000), according to NetworthBro.com. Back in 2004, during the taping of her TV show, she gave each of the 276 audience members a new Pontiac G6. She famously shouted: “Everybody gets a car!”
Devin Hester – Chevrolet Impala, $250K
Retired NFL player Devin Hester indulges in some luxury from time to time. He has a passion for customized cars, like his 1972 Chevrolet Impala. The car went through its own customization in four different shops, with the end result being worth a quarter of a million dollars. But the car in the photo is his Chevy Caprice with 26” chrome rims and a Louis Vuitton interior. He seems to have passed his love for cars onto his son Devin Junior. He wrote in a blog once that he would take his son to car shows, and together they bonded over all things cars. How cute.
Jennifer Love Hewitt – Bentley Continental GTC, $218K
Jennifer Love Hewitt, probably best remembered for role in ‘Party of Five,’ has been around long after the show ended. Her long career in TV and film might explain her purchase of a Bentley GT Continental, a nice luxury car that’s also useful for a real-life mom with two kids. The car is not cheap, at a price of $218K, but the actress has a net worth of $18 million and married to actor Brian Hallisay, so her finances are not a worry.
Samuel L. Jackson – Maybach 57, $500K
Seeing as how is one of the highest-grossing actors in Hollywood (with a net worth of $211 million), it comes as no surprise that he owns a super fancy car. His vehicle of choice is a Maybach 57, a luxury sedan, worth $500K. He didn’t opt for the flashy sports car or muscle car. Jackson has often been spotted driving his Toyota Camry as well. So, it’s safe to say that he prefers comfort over extravagance.
Katherine Heigl – Range Rover SUV, $108K
Katherine Heigl, once the queen of romantic comedies, starring in films like ‘Knocked Up,’ ‘The Ugly Truth,’ and ’27 Dresses,’ was rolling in the dough. And she probably still is. But her choice of car was influenced by being a mom to three children as opposed to elegance or showing off; she needs space. The $108,000 Range Rover certainly fits the bill. But the SUV is a gas guzzler.
Conor Mcgregor – Rolls-Royce Dawn, $350K
Did you know that Conor McGregor was training to be a plumber when he realized he could better make money by hitting people inside a cage? That’s right, the professional MMA fighter was a plumber. The insanely popular fighter and businessman drives a Rolls-Royce. His Rolls-Royce Dawn is worth about $350,000 and quite a powerful status symbol. The Irishman has more than half a dozen high-end luxurious cars in his collection, including a Lamborghini Aventador, Cadillac Escalade, Rolls Royce Ghost, and Rolls Royce Phantom.
Cam Newton – 1970 Oldsmobile 442 Cutlass, $255K
It looks like being a quarterback for the Carolina Panthers pays off. Cam Newton enjoys his success by using his money to support his family as well as have some fun. He’s spent thousands just customizing a vintage 1970 Oldsmobile 442 Cutlass. He got 24k gold plating fitted, renovated the interior with diamond stitching, and decorated the front grille with the Panther’s logo. The makeover cost him $45,000.
Julia Roberts – Mercedes-Benz GL320, $53K
Julia Roberts needs no introduction. And we also don’t need an explanation for how she’s so rich and famous. I like how one of the richest actors in Hollywood, with a net worth of $150 million has a somewhat modest car that costs $53,000. I would like to imagine that Julia prefers to spend her fortune on her kids and family. In a recent interview, she confessed that her life was getting better with age.
Alessandra Ambrosio – Range Rover SUV, $100K
Alessandra Ambrosio is one of the most successful models in the world right now and she drives a Range Rover SUV. If she drove a Ferrari, men might just fall off their chairs. The $100,000 car has cost her a share of parking tickets too. But with the amount of money she makes in her modeling career, Alessandra can afford the extra amount needed to pay off the fines.
Kate Upton – Mercedes-Benz SLS 6.3 Amg, $248K
Kate Upton, another world-famous model, posed for many magazines, including Sports Illustrated which shot her into fame. Kate drives a Tesla Model S on some days of the week, which has a price tag of $100,000. But she takes her Mercedes-Benz SLS 6.3 AMG for a ride when she wants to impress onlookers. And this car cost her $248,000. Upton comes from a family of wealthy and famous people, so she’s no stranger to riches. She’s married to Justin Verlander, and a couple of months ago, they welcomed their first child.
Next, see what Leo DiCaprio drives…
Leonardo Dicaprio – Fisker Karma Hybrid, $135K
No, Leo doesn’t own a Hummer. The actor is lucky that today’s technology has advanced enough to allow him to buy both an environmentally friendly and fast car. The Tesla Roadster and the Fisker Karma Hybrid are the best supercars on the market that have a minimal effect on the planet. The $135,000 Fisker even has an Eco-Chic interior that ensures that no animal products were used to make it. This just makes me love him even more!
Amber Heard – Ford Mustang, $150K
Actress Amber Heard, also known as Johnny Depp’s ex, has owned her 1968 Ford Mustang for at least 14 years and has even had to deal with the car being stolen three times. Each time, she would upgrade her security system, but the car thieves still managed to bypass it. Then, after the 4th time the car disappeared, her dad pranked her and took it for customization on the TV show ‘Overhaulin’ as a surprise. The car got a complete makeover and Amber was in tears of joy during the big reveal.
Manny Pacquiao – Ferrari 458 Italia, $270K
Manny Pacquiao is one of the best boxers in the history of the sport and one of the richest people in the Philippines. And in 2015, he was named the second richest athlete in the world. Wow. The boxer-turned-senator has a collection of expensive cars, including a Porsche Cayenne Turbo, a Lincoln Navigator, and a Mercedes-Benz SLK. But his favorite is his Ferrari 458 Italia that came at a price tag of $270,000. The car aficionado also has a handful of normal cars in his garage, too, like a Chevrolet Suburban, a Mitsubishi Pajero, a Hyundai Santa Fe, and more. He has 22 cars in total. I can only imagine how big his garage is.
Lady Gaga – Audi R8, $165K
Lady Gaga likes to raise eyebrows, but when it comes to cars, she’s a little bit classier. She drives an Audi R8, a car that comes at a price of $165,000. Gaga has a number of other cars in her garage that tend to turn heads, like her Lamborghini Aventador, Rolls Royce Phantom, Lincoln Continental, and others. The singer is enjoying her career-high with her success from the film ‘A Star Is Born’ where she won the 2018 Oscar for best actress.
Celine Dion – Maybach 62, $500K
Celine Dion, being the diva she is, flies around the world in her private jet, and lives in mansions. So a fancy car is a clearly obvious purchase. Her Maybach 62 ultra-luxury car suits her style. Considering how it costs as much as a small house would at $500,000, it certainly goes well next to her private jet. Celine’s net worth is $800-million. Yeah, just think about that for a second. So Celine and her family and her family’s family and their families’ families can enjoy their lives for generations to come.
Paris Hilton – Bentley GT Continental, $400K
The heir of the Hilton family fortune can buy anything she wants, and if that means buying eight luxury cars with some of them being bubblegum pink, then so be it. Her favorite of her collection is this custom bubble gum pink Bentley GT Continental which is estimated to be worth around $285,000. The car is Barbie-themed (why am I not surprised?) and is customized to show off the Hilton’s logo. Paris confessed that she’s been a fan of Barbie for a long time and craved for the Barbie Corvette when she was younger. Do you see? Dreams can come true…
Jay Leno – 1955 Mercedes 300sl Gullwing Coupe, $1.8 Million
Jay Leno has earned a net worth of $350 million due to his very successful career as a comedian and talk show host. And everyone knows how much of a car enthusiast he is. He has a collection of 130 cars and 93 motorcycles. One of his prized possessions is his red 1955 Mercedes 300SL Gullwing Coupe which is worth $1.8 million! The vintage race car was stored away by its second owner until Jay Leno found it. This Gullwing actually costs more than the new model. But the 68-year-old Jay Leno millionaire can afford it.
Kim Kardashian – Ferrari 458 Italia, $325K
In the world we live in today, people like Kim can get super-rich and famous for doing nothing. In between photo shoots and trips to Italy, Kim can be found buying cars and houses. She already has a car collection, including a Mercedes-Benz G63, Porsche Panamera, Bentley Continental GTC, a black and also a white Rolls-Royce Ghost, and her then there’s her favorite one: the white Ferrari 458 Italia. Rumor has it that Malaysian fugitive businessman Jho Low gave it to Kim and ex-husband Kris Humphries as their wedding gift back in 2011.
Jay Z – Maybach Exelero, $8.8 Million
Leave it to Jay Z to own the most expensive car in the world. Both Jay Z and his Queen B have spent about $15 million on their luxury car collection. The set includes a Ferrari F430 Spider, Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet, Bugatti Veyron, and this Maybach Exelero which was even used in his music video, “Otis”. Sure, this car comes at a ridiculous price of over $8 million, but when your net worth is in the billions, it’s no big deal. It is a high-performance German car with a top speed of 218kmph.
P.Diddy – Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe, $440K
Sean Combs, aka P. Diddy, is by far one of the richest hip-hop artists in the world. He owns four luxury cars: a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder, 1958 Corvette, Maybach 57 (which he gave as a gift to his son for his 16th birthday), and this custom-made white Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe. Thanks to business ventures, including his own clothing line, fragrances, and even a brand of vodka, Diddy can afford this $440,000 car.
Next, try to guess what Nicolas Cage drives…
Nicolas Cage – 1958 Ferrari 250 GT Pininfarina, $3.6 Million
Nicholas Cage, long after his 90s reign as one of the most popular actors in Hollywood, faced some financial difficulties. As a result, he was only able to keep ten cars (boo hoo…). Most of them are expensive vintage cars, but his favorite is his white 1958 Ferrari 250 GT Pininfarina which is worth $3.8 million. But considering he had an issue with the IRS regarding tax payment, he might want to be careful with his investments.
Seal – Bentley Azure, $380K
Remember Seal? The talented singer and ex-husband of Heidi Klum has a spot on this list for his choice of vehicle. His golden Bentley Azure cost him $380,000 and it actually has all the comforts a modern car has but with old-time style as well. Seal looks like he wanted class as well as flamboyance with his choice of this gold luxury car. Apparently, he also has Ferarri F430 Spider sitting next to his Bentley Azure.
Kanye West – Mercedes SLR, $850K
Kanye West owns eight luxury cars: a Mercedes S Class, Mercedes Maybach, Mercedes G Wagon, Rolls-Royce Phantom, Lamborghini Gallardo, Lamborghini Aventador, Aston Martin DB9, and Mercedes SLR. Aside from the cost of this collection, he then spends an additional $2.5 million to have all of his cars armor-plated to protect him and his family. Married to Kim Kardashian, the two recently announced that they are going to be parents of a 4th child.
Simon Cowell – Bugatti Veyron, $1.7 Million
Simon Cowell, one of the richest people in the United Kingdom (with a $550-million net worth), has a passion for luxury cars. He owns a total of 25 cars, a Quad Bike, and even a Race Kart. His massive collection is estimated to be worth around $15 million. And his favorite among the 25 cars is this $1.7-million Bugatti Veyron. Earning a $95 million yearly salary from all his judging and reality show productions allowed him to have fun with his purchases. Wouldn’t you?
David Beckham – Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe, $400K
David Beckham isn’t just one of the most renowned soccer players in the world, he’s also a model. He has a collection of ten luxury cars, but the best part is his Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe which is worth around $400,000. What makes his car special is the fact that it was customized just for him. He got 24″ Savini Forged wheels and his jersey number 23 was stitched into the upholstery. He’s been seen driving through Beverly Hills along with his three sons.
50 Cent – Lamborghini Murcielago, $2 Million
Don’t be fooled by the name – rapper 50 Cent has a lot more in his bank account. He owns a Chrome Lamborghini Gallardo, Ferrari F430, Rolls-Royce, Range Rover, Bentley, Pontiac G8, and there’s his blue Lamborghini Murcielago which comes at a price of $2 million. But on an interesting note, he had filed for bankruptcy a few years ago. Rumor has it that he had to pay $5 million in compensation to a woman for misconduct, hence the bankruptcy claim. But he’ll get himself back up.
The Game – Bugatti Veyron, $2.2 Million
The Game is another hip-hop artist who lives for driving around in luxury cars. He has a wide collection of supercars like a Porsche Panamera, Camaro, Rolls-Royce Ghost, Dodge Challenger, Ferrari, Bentley GT, Fisker Karma, and this black and yellow Bugatti Veyron worth $2.2 million. This rapper has a thing for customization – he even got gold wheels for his Porsche.
Flo Rida – Bugatti Veyron, $2.7 Million
Thanks to Flo Rida’s accomplished career as a rapper, he’s been able to start an impressive collection of luxury cars. His collection includes a Gold Bugatti Veyron, Chrome Bugatti Veyron, Ferrari California, and Ferrari 458. The original price for the Bugatti was $1.7 million, but he added an extra million for customization as he wanted to plate the entire car in gold. In spite of losing his home and racking up debt, he still loves to invest in luxury cars.
Floyd Mayweather – Koenigsegg Ccxr Trevita, $4.8 Million
The undefeated world boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, Jr. isn’t called “Money” for nothing. Because of his track record, he has earned his place as one of the, if not, the wealthiest boxer of all time. As his bank account is huge, he can afford a collection of almost 100 cars! His most prized piece is the Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita. Doesn’t ring a bell? That’s because there are only two units in the world. The car insurance must be very steep for this baby alone! Well, that must be nothing compared to the extravagant lifestyle Mayweather leads. All his cars would be worth $15 million altogether! His $340 million net worth helps, but still, the figure is a bit too much for us lesser mortals.
Tom Hardy – Audi R8 Spyder, $160K
Tom Hardy drove a supercharged V8 Interceptor in ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ and he loves fast cars in real life as well. He’s got a thing for the Audi brand, owning a red Audi RS5 and a black Audi R8 Spyder. Though the RS5 is a fine car, the $160K R8 is clearly the better one, as it is faster, stronger, and better-looking. It’s double the price, too, so Tom is quite lucky that his career is on the rise, keeping his bank account healthy. We are sure that this is not the end of it, and there is more to come in his car collection. The star who acted in movies like ‘Inception,’ ‘The Dark Knight’, ‘The Dark Knight Rises,’ and ‘Lawless’ is doing great now, and more good times are about to come for him. Here’s wishing him good luck.
Chris Brown – Lamborghini Aventador, $450K
Chris Brown loves expensive cars, and he likes customizing them to make them unique. His impressive car collection includes beauties like an Orange Chevy Impala, Orange Lamborghini Aventador, Blue & Purple Porsche Panamera, Orange Bugatti Veyron, and his sleek Matte Black Aventador. A luxury car for almost every day of the week, we must say. Unfortunately, his favorite ride, the Lamborghini Aventador, was completely totaled in 2017 and was found abandoned. Chris Brown said he wasn’t driving the car and would often let his friends drive them so we assume it must have been one of those friends. He has other great cars and his fat bank accounts might help him buy another Lamborghini soon!
Blac Chyna – Rolls-Royce Wraith, $400K
Blac Chyna became known as the reality star who is the on-again-off-again fiancée of Rob Kardashian. The couple even had their own show called ‘Rob & Chyna,’ so you have an idea of how much money she has in the bank. Chyna owns a lot of expensive cars such as a Pink Range Rover, Pink Ferrari, Lamborghini, and her newest addition to her collection, a stunning white Rolls-Royce worth around $400,000. We hope she is not turning this classic into pink as well! In 2017, after a social media spat with her ex Rob Kardashian, she returned pieces of jewelry as well as luxury cars to him. Right after that, she bought a swanky new Ferrari! She also came up with her first single last year, and we hope she will have a great career ahead!
Lil’ Wayne – Bugatti Veyron, $2.5 Million
Like other hip-hop artists, Lil’ Wayne loves spending millions of dollars on flashy expensive luxury cars, and his car collection is quite impressive by hip-hop standards. Some of his cars include an Aston Martin V12 Vanquish, Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe, and his $2.5-million black Bugatti Veyron. Incidentally, he was the first rapper to buy the Bugatti Veyron. Back in 2010, it had cost him $1 million dollars. The Bugatti Veyron is a sports car from the Volkswagen Company in Germany. Currently, in the list of most expensive cars, Bugatti ranks at number 4. Well, he clearly showed the path to many more rappers after him as they bought Bugatti Veyron. It has clearly become a status symbol for Hollywood A-listers who don’t have to worry about their credit scores anymore!
T-Pain – Bugatti Veyron, $2.5 Million
T-Pain doesn’t only have expensive cars, he has a genuine love for them. According to Forbes, T-Pain owns a total of 32 cars that he handpicked himself. His favorite is the Chevy Impala which he has in five different models, but his most expensive ride is his red Bugatti Veyron which is worth around $2.5 million. In 2014, though he sold his Bugatti along with 24 other cars. Apparently, the car got a hole in its radiator as it was T-Pain’s favorite and he used it too often. Repairing costs were about $90,000, hence he sold the car for $1 million and bought a Lamborghini Aventador, a Ferrari, and a Mclaren! We are sure there was no credit card loan involved and T-Pain could have got them by paying cash itself!
Drake –Bugatti Veyron, $2.5 Million
Drake is another prominent name in the hip-hop world today. But 15 years ago, when he first appeared on the TV show ‘Degrassi: The Next Generation,’ no one would have guessed he would become this successful (even him). Now, he has so much money in his bank account that he owns seven highly expensive luxury cars. His most precious ride is his $2.5-million sleek black Bugatti Veyron. However, it’s not just any Bugatti Veyron, it’s a Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir, a much rarer model than the other two Bugatti Veyron in the market. Looks like our loaded celebrities love to possess unique things! When Drake bought the car, it was the only one in Canada, but Drake sold it off a few years later.
Amber Rose – Pink Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, $150K
The model and actress even has her own TV show, so you can guess that she has a million-level net worth. She owns expensive cars like the $4.2-million convertible Ferrari and a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder, but her most recognizable one is her bubble gum Pink Jeep Wrangler Unlimited SUV, which is pink inside and out. A Pink Jeep is an ideal combination where masculinity meets femininity. The Jeep had first got a bubble gum pink color but since Amber wanted something more special, she got a pink chrome wrap. However, in 2017, she ordered a green wrap for the Jeep. Looks like Amber Rose loves to give his cars a custom makeover, thanks to the millions in her bank.
Birdman – Maybach Exelero, $8.8 Million
The rapper Bryan “Birdman” Williams is said to own over 30 unique collectible cars. The Birdman has a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, Maybach 62S Landaulet, tons of Lambos, and a $2-million Bugatti Veyron. But believe it or not, the Bugatti isn’t the most expensive car in his collection. He owns a Maybach Exelero that cost him around $8.8 million. With a net worth of $180 million, Birdman might not be the richest rapper in the industry, but he does have the taste for the best and a huge passion for cars. The Maybach is one of the costliest cars in the world right now and runs like a dream. Birdman also co-owns Cash Money Record.
Cristiano Ronaldo – Bugatti Veyron, $2.5 Million
Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the best soccer superstars of all time, and also one of the wealthiest. The last time we checked, Ronaldo has a collection of 19 expensive luxury cars along with the neighborhood of $7 million in total. His most recent, and probably the most valuable piece in his collection is the $2.5-million Bugatti Veyron. But, the wealthy football star has recently added another Bugatti to his already star-studded collection. Turns out a Bugatti Chiron is even more expensive and is worth $3 million. The ace player who was with Real Madrid for a long time moved on to Juventus recently. While he is raking in the moolah, he can’t keep himself out of controversies. He is under a police investigation for a case in Las Vegas now.
Justin Bieber – Audi R8, $250K
Justin Bieber has definitely racked up enough money to play around with ridiculously expensive cars. Aside from his two motorbikes and ten cars, he chose to customize his Audi R8, which in my opinion should not be customized because it’s literally perfect as is. But okay, Bieber, go ahead and make it ugly by putting leopard print all over it. By the way, he also owns a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, a Fisker Karma, a Ferrari 458, a Range Rover, a Ferrari 430, a Lamborghini Gallardo, a Porsche 997 Turbo, a Lamborghini Aventador, a Smart Car, and the Campagna T-Rex 14R.
Antonio Brown – Rolls-Royce Phantom, $500K
Antonio Brown wants everyone to know that he’s doing well financially, indicated by his $500K Rolls-Royce. Also that he plays for the Pittsburgh Steelers, demonstrated by the colors of his Rolls-Royce that match those of his team. And in case someone hasn’t noticed who drives the luxury car, his signature is all over the doors. We’d call him vain, but if we could afford to have our customized RR without declaring bankruptcy, we’d probably do it, too. This is not the only Rolls Royce he owns as he has another! It is vintage – a 1931 Rolls Royce.
Steven Tyler – Hennessey Venom GT Spyder, $1.1 Million
Steven Tyler, the frontman of Aerosmith, is a living legend in rock music. In 2012, Tyler purchased a stunning Hennessey Venom GT Spyder for $1.1 million but later decided to auction it off for $800,000. He then donated all the funds to his own Janie’s Fund, which helps abused and neglected children. Incidentally, he was the first in the world to own a Hennessey Venom GT Spyder. The stunning sports car looks sleek and as good as sin. It also suited the personality of the flamboyant rockstar that he is. We salute Tyler’s spirit as he not only sold it but donated to the money to charity!
Gwen Stefani – Porsche Panamera, $200K
Gwen Stefani has a Porsche Panamera which is estimated to be worth around $200,000, but that isn’t her only car. She also owns a Quattroporte Maserati, Range Rover, and a Mercedes-Benz SUV. Even though her car may seem a little less expensive compared to others on this list, it’s still a very expensive Porsche which anyone of us would love to own. The brand name Porsche is sometimes enough to turn heads and make us go “wow”. She had actually traded her Maserati for the Porsche Panamera, a car which is also ranked number one among luxury cars. Since Stefani is seen often going around with her Porsche, it’s safe to assume that it is her favorite for now.
Nicki Minaj – Lamborghini Aventador, $400K
Nicki Minaj is one of the most famous female rappers and one that has to have a nice set of wheels. Nicki loves to customize her cars like her bubblegum pink Lamborghini Aventador and bubble gum pink Bentley Continental GT. Oh, and let’s not forget her flame-red Lamborghini Gallardo. The gorgeous Aventador looks stunning in pink though. When stars customize their rides, they give out the message that they own it completely and can do just about anything they want to do with it even if the world doesn’t approve. However, Minaj has other luxury cars in her garage, too – a Range Rover, a Maybach, and a 1965 El Camino. The girl does know her cars, but we do hope she has some meaningful insurance policies as well as keeping the future in mind.
Tom Brady – Bugatti Veyron Supersport, $3 Million
Star quarterback of the New England Patriots, Tom Brady is one of the biggest NFL superstars ever, so you can just imagine how much money he has in his bank account. He also married one of the most successful supermodels in the world, Gisele Bündchen. Gisele bought Tom a $3-million Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. The man has it all. It should be mentioned here that Gisele has double the net worth than that of Tom. While Tom’s sits at $180 million, Gisele commands a net worth of $360 million. Their joint net worth is huge, and we hope the couple is investing in beautiful retirement homes! However, Brady signed a deal with the luxury car owners Aston Martin, and we can’t help but wonder what is his favorite car right now?
Candice Swanepoel – Mercedes-Benz Sls Convertible, $135K
Just imagine driving down the road, looking to your left and seeing Candice Swanepoel. She’s one of the hottest models to grace our earth, driving her red Mercedes-Benz SLS Convertible. Who could keep their eyes on the road when confronted with South-African beauty and German excellence? The South African supermodel is best known for being Victoria’s Secret model. In 2016, she has made it to the list of top-earning models. Last year, she launched her own swimwear line and now she is officially a businesswoman. Thankfully, she is a generous person and is a well-known philanthropist, too.
Akon – Spyker c8, $350K
When it comes to cars, what Akon wants is that each and every luxury or sports car he buys gets a fresh coat of white paint, inside and out. He’s done this to his Porsche Panamera, Lamborghini Murcielago, Dartz Prombron, and others. But hey, he pays the car insurance, it’s his name on the dotted line, so he can do what he wants. Besides, judging from his custom Spyker C8, it is not a bad look and it is certainly better than painting them gold. Contrary to his rapper image, the white color is almost like a contrast though.
Shaquille O’Neal – Ford F-350 Supercrew Truck, $100K
Shaq is mostly remembered from his seasons playing for the L.A Lakers where he won several NBA championship titles with the legendary Kobe Bryant. Nobody knows why, but Shaq is selling his Ford F-350 Supercrew truck. Shaq customized his vehicle and added many luxury features that cost more than 40,000$. We’re not sure who will buy his car, but he will surely enjoy driving it around the neighborhood. Did you know 8 of his cars were customized so that he could fit in his huge frame in them? Apart from cars, this veteran basketball player has also big investments in real estate and his Florida mansion costs a staggering $28 million.
Tom Cruise – Bugatti Veyron, $1.7 Million
om Cruise has had a thing for speed for decades, from the jets in Top Gun to the cars of Days Of Thunder. He stays true to that in real life as well. Take for instance his car of choice, the Bugatti Veyron, which holds the Guinness World Record for the fastest street-legal production car. On top of that, it looks amazing and it is an excellent way for Tom to feel good as his personal life after his divorce hasn’t been exactly stellar. Apart from the alimony money, he probably had to pay up hefty legal fees, but being one of the leading stars in the industry has its perks. His huge net worth of $570 million enables him to keep everything as smooth as possible. The ‘Mission Impossible’ star also has an impressive motorcycle collection. With 10 motorcycles and 9 cars, he is definitely happy with his toys.
Usain Bolt — Ferrari 458, $291K
You wouldn’t think of Usain Bolt as someone who’d be into expensive cars since he’s all about staying on his feet, but he’s a huge fan of cars that go fast, and he’s got enough money in his bank to satisfy his wants when it comes to this area. Usain is one of the most famous runners in all of history and has held the title of the fastest man on earth for numerous years now. It only stands to reason that he’d love fast cars, too, and his amazing Ferrari 458 doesn’t disappoint. He’s got other cars, of course, but this one stands out specifically since it’s really popular and has an incredible maximum speed — a whopping 325 km/h!
John Wayne – 1975 Pontiac Grand Safari, $40K
John Wayne, aka “the Duke”, is and has always been one of the greatest Hollywood stars from the Golden Age era. Known for his handsome cowboy-look, the Academy Award winner was often seen driving around his vintage 1975 Pontiac Grand Safari station wagon. He was so dedicated to this car that he had it customized by none other than, Barris Kustoms. But sadly, the vintage ride was auctioned after Wayne passed away. We can’t help but wonder how much it went and if it brings back any western memories to the new owner. The actor who gave a stellar performance in the movie ‘True Grit’ was a huge draw at the box-office.
Meghan Markle – Jaguar E-Type, $470K
Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, who starred in ‘Suits,’ has been the talk of the world ever since she married the wonderous Prince Harry. While many talked about on her stunning Givenchy wedding dress, there is also talk spreading about her classic Jaguar E-type Zero car, which was originally built in 1968 and modernized for the Duchess herself. It was even modernized to have a left-hand drive to fit Meghan’s former American way-of-life. It seems fitting that a Duchess has such a trendy and unique car. However, with her upcoming pregnancy, it is safe to assume that the Duchess is being driven everywhere and almost always accompanied by her husband Prince Harry. The royal baby would be a great addition to the beautiful family, and the couple is probably banking on their good genes to be passed on to their offspring.
Austin Mahone — BMW i8, $148K
Austin’s one of the up and coming singers of this generation and he’s only 22! His young age hasn’t stopped him from becoming an absolute hit, though, and he’s becoming increasingly popular with every passing month. He’s got a great taste in cars and has bought a BMW i8. He wasn’t happy with just a basic model, of course, and went ahead and customized it. The end result doesn’t look all that bad and is pretty unique with its rusty color. Austin isn’t even close to retirement, but we think that he’ll be making some big waves in the world of singing and the entertainment industry in the years to come.
Emma Roberts – Range Rover, $50K
The 26-year-old actress drives way below what her bank account could allow her. With a net worth of $15 million and appearances on ‘We’re The Millers’ and ‘American Horror Story,’ Emma Roberts could be driving some of the flashy cars celebs use to show off affluence. Instead, she goes around in a $50K Range Rover, an everyday-people car. Maybe she’s been listening to her financial advisor. After all, she has some very wise people in her family who can guide her in her career as well as her life, too. Aunt Julia Robert and father Eric Roberts are industry veterans and are the best people to tell her what to do.
Kyle Busch — 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air, $99K
Having a net worth of $96 million sure helps. It didn’t hold Kyle back from purchasing his beloved Chevrolet Bel Air. It’s absolutely gorgeous, and it’s extremely comfortable to ride. There’s no way on earth that he’ll have to face bankruptcy unless he makes some huge blunders. With the way he’s been handling his wealth so far, we aren’t inclined to believe that he’ll mess up his life.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. — 1967 Camaro, $3,539
This Camaro costs around $4,000 back in the day when it was first released, but now, the standard price is much more expensive. You’d have to pay around $100,000 if you want to get your hands on this beauty, and its price isn’t unjustified. Even though it’s an old car, it still offers a great ride. It’s one of the most luxurious cars that you could drive around, and Dale made sure that he spent his well-earned money on something worthwhile. This race car driver had more than enough money in his bank account to buy pretty much any ride that his heart desired, and he chose pretty well.
Joe Haden – Lamborghini Aventador, $1.1 Million
Like many NFL players, Joe Haden likes Lamborghinis. With their prices, it’s a good thing he’s got money because the average Joe couldn’t afford one even if he took a mortgage out on the house. Joe has at least two, a Murcielago that he bought earlier and an Aventador. He had the Aventador painted in the colors of the Cleveland Browns which might be a bit awkward with his new team, the Pittsburgh Steelers. However, a paint job might is possible. Haden needs to figure out if he wants his team colors on his car again, for that has proven to be a tricky business already.
Jeff Gordon — 1952 Oldsmobile Super 88 Convertible, $128K
There’s nothing in the world quite like an old-fashioned convertible, and the Oldsmobile Super 88 is just the car you’d want. Jeff Gordon thought that the car was more than enough for him when he decided to go for it. He used it on the go, and for a car so old, it sure performed like it had been made just a few years back. Jeff has a wide array of other cars. He is probably one of the best race car drivers out there, and he has had an amazing career so far.
Ryan Newman — 1949 Buick Roadmaster Convertible Coupe, $7,800
The 1949 Buick Roadmaster might sound like it’s cheap but the value of a single dollar was much higher back then. $7,800 was worth far more back then and was more than what the average American earned annually. The car was given to Ryan by his wife on his birthday, and she chose it specifically due to it having appeared in his favorite movie, ‘Rain Man.’ Ryan wasn’t short on cash himself, with his race car driving career doing more than enough for his bank account.
Jimmie Johnson — 1949 Stepside Chevy, $39K
The beautiful truck might be almost 70 years old now, but it still runs like a vehicle that was manufactured this year. Jimmie himself has stated that although it might look a bit old, it’s comfortable to drive around in. It’s also got a really powerful engine that gives the vehicle a great sound along with all the engine-power you could ever ask for. No matter how much you weigh it down, it’ll run without any complaints. Jimmie isn’t about to hit retirement any time soon, so we’ll just have to wait and see if he gets a new favorite vehicle.
Janet Jackson — Lamborghini Murcielago, $380K
For someone as rich as Janet Jackson, we wouldn’t expect anything other than a Lamborghini. Of course, this isn’t the only vehicle that she owns, but it’s one of her favorites. This car is known for the amazing speeds that it can pull off, which is more than enough to make anyone want it. That’s not all, of course, since the car is also really comfortable and gives a really smooth ride. With $175 million in her bank account, Janet won’t be running into any financial problems any time soon which gives her leave to buy pretty much any car that she wants to.
John Cena — 2017 Ford GT, $400K
John Cena is one of the most popular personalities in the world and people all over know him as one of WWE’s best wrestlers. He has dominated pop culture due to his appearances in wrestling matches over the years, and his dedication paid off big time now that he’s got a huge bank account that can support his every whim and desire. He’s making good use of that money as well since the Ford GT has been a celebrated car for many years now. It has got huge amounts of power coupled with aesthetic looks that aren’t matched by any other car out there.
Pastor John Gray – Lamborghini SUV, $200K
Pastor John Gray stirred the hornet’s nest when he bought a $200,000 Lamborghini SUV for his wife, Aventar Gray. While many would argue that he’s well within his rights to buy whatever he wants for his wife, others have commented that it’s not exactly the most moral thing to spend $200,000 on a luxury vehicle for his partner as it’s suspected the funds for the vehicle came from the church. Commentators have also mentioned that the money could have been used for something of more value, like purchasing a house or donating it. But, the members of the Relentless Church are defending the pastor. John Gray realized that the best way to get through to people was with the help of music. He’s even been in a couple of movies and is a jewelry designer by trade, so it’s easy to see where he got all this money to by a Lamborghini in his bank account.
Katherine Legge – Acura, $159K
Katherine Legge is a professional auto racer from Britain and has been featured in the original series on the BBC series, Richard Hammond’s Crash Course. She represented Polestar Motor Racing in the popular Toyota Atlantic Championship and also happens to be the first woman to test drive a Formula One car in 2005 since Sarah Fisher did it in 2002. She owns an Acura and we have to agree it’s stunning. We don’t know whether she made the purchase via her credit card, but Katherine had to shell out around $159,300 for this beaut.

The professional racer comes from Eagle River, Wisconsin and has earned quite a name for herself by competing in the Xfinity Series as well as the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series aside from participating in the NASCAR Drive for Diversity in 2014.

She owns a Dreyer & Reinbold car which she often uses for the races and its current price is valued at something around $32,999.
Amber Cope – Porsche Panamera, $85K

The twins kick-started their racing career at the age of 9 and climbed the ladder of fame by earning victories in poles and races every year. Amber has a Porsche Panamera in her garage, and the Executive Bi-Turbo is simply stunning in appearance as well as performance. The Panamera is said to have a base price of around $85,000, and we guess her financial attorney must have guided her while making the buy.
Angela Cope-Ruch – Bentley Continental, $220K
Angela Christine Ruch is a car racer who happens to be the twin sister of Amber Cope, along with whom she entered the record world for being the first twins to have competed in the top three series of NASCAR.

Angela drives a Bentley Continental, and according to her financial planning advisor, the professional racer had to spend nearly $220,000 to acquire it. The car has always been a favorite with the millionaires and billionaires as well as the superstar athletes, and Angela is a superstar in her own right.

The Canadian racer from Quebec is a model as well as an advertising spokeswoman. Maryeve competed in a number of races such as the Formula BMW, the Formula Renault, the Skip Barber, the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series, the NASCAR Nationwide Series, the ARCA Racing Series, and the Star Mazda. Aside from that, she also made appearances in several shows on TV. She has a Ford Fusion in her possession which she often used to race in the ARCA Racing Series, and we heard she had to expend around $24,120 from her banks in order to include that in her collection.
Erin Crocker – Dodge Ram, $41K
Erin Crocker is an American car racer who also worked as a broadcaster with the Winged Nation on the Motor Racing Network. She has also represented her high school and college outfits in soccer and tennis. Crocker earned the Outstanding Newcomer Award bestowed upon her by the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame.

She lives in one of her retirement homes in Alabama and along with her hubby and son, it’s a small and happy family.

As far as her collection of cars is concerned, Tina owns a green Nissan GT-R which is available in the market with a price tag of around $99,900. It’s designed to deliver a higher level of performance but is available in pretty limited numbers in the North American continent.
Rowan Atkinson -Mclaren F1, $12 Million
Rowan Atkinson is known as the man who portrayed the lovable and hilarious Mr. Bean. But he’s got a lot more going on apart from playing this role for the most part of his career. Rowan has also acted in the ‘Johnny English’ movie franchise and has done justice to his role as the character. He even got to keep the Rolls Royce which was featured in the movie. Rowan is an extremely successful actor with a huge bank account and a lot of love for exquisite cars, and among his collection is his own McLaren F1. This car is so expensive that when he crashed it, he had to spend around $1.35 million to repair it.
Jason Momoa – Cadillac, $16K
Jason Momoa has been integral to many film projects, but most GoT fans worldwide would recognize him as the actor who played Khal Drogo in the series. He also starred in ‘Aquaman,’ and garnered rave reviews worldwide for spectacularly portraying the hero. It seems that Jason has got a penchant for cars, and we are not talking about the amphibious ones. He has got a pink Cadillac in his fleet and while most men would not prefer a pink car, Jason is a different type. The car, which has been in his garage for the past one and a half-decade, has got a nice name, too – Bernadette. Jason has also made investments in a Land Rover Defender Series 3, a Range Rover, a Harley Davidson bike, and an e-cycle.
Guy Fieri – Chevrolet Chevelle, $166K
Who knew that Guy Fiery, an American restaurateur and award-winning TV personality, is a car geek, too? Back in 1996, when Guy wasn’t so famous, he set his eye on a retro Chevy Chevelle. It was a 1971 vintage model that he took a fancy to since he was a kid. Unfortunately, he didn’t have $25,000 at that time to afford it. He even planned to mortgage his house, which didn’t quite go down well with her wife, Lori. As his proposal was summarily turned down by his wife, Guy reached out for his old boot where he saved some $12,000 in cash. He used his savings and his negotiation skills to buy the car. At first, he didn’t like the yellow color of the car but as time went by, he fell in love with the car and has got a whole bevy of yellow trucks and speedsters now.
Danica Patrick – Lamborghini Gallardo, $200K
Danica Patrick is a legend in a male-dominated sport and has broken world records when it comes to the racing track. When you’re one of the best female drivers in the world and have a net worth of $15 million dollars, what can you possibly drive? Well, Danica bought a stunning one-of-a-kind silver, Lamborghini Gallardo in 2007, which can reach prices of up to $200,000 dollars! Fun fact, she only bought this car as she felt her 645 BMW was “too slow”. Racecar driver problems! Patrick hasn’t been able to drive the car as much as she’d like and finds herself driving a Ford Expedition SUV car during her day-to-day. We were shocked to hear that she doesn’t find herself to be a car person and prefers practical cars over sporty ones.
Gabourey Sidibe – Jeep Grand Cherokee, $31K
The American actress started off her acting career with ‘Precious’, a 2009 film and her portrayal earned her an Academy Award and a Golden Globe Award nomination in the Best Actress category, aside from winning the Independent Spirit Award. She has also starred in other films such as ‘White Bird in a Blizzard,’ ‘Grimsby,’ and ‘Tower Heist.’ Sidibe has also been a prominent cast member of ‘The Big C,’ a popular series on Showtime.

Tiger Woods – Porsche Carrera GT, $440k
Tiger Woods, one of the best golfers of all time, is a known fan of luxurious cars. He recently damaged his Mercedes-Benz S65 and was later arrested on DUI charges.

This super-rich sportsperson also owns luxurious yachts and a private jet. His extra-marital affairs tarnished his image a bit and also affected his stellar career — even then the amount of wealth he has accumulated his impressive. At least his children or even grandchildren would never have to worry about their credit score.
Robert Downey Jr. – Custom Boss 302 Mustang, $135K
Robert Downey Jr’s car collection is impressive, with more than 20 cars included. His baby, though, is his custom Boss 302 Mustang that was made for the SEMA show in 2017. This car ended up winning the best-in-show for its category of restored muscle cars. The Boss 302 is a rare beauty, not to mention this is a fully custom and restored version.
Janet Guthrie – JAGUAR XK-120, $70K
After finishing her college education, she was employed by Republic Aviation as a research and development engineer. However, engineering wasn’t really a career she wanted to pursue so Janet became the first female car racer to have participated in the Daytona 500, the Indianapolis 500, and the NASCAR Winston Cup stock car race. She was honored with an induction into the Women’s Sports Hall of Fame in 1980 and the International Motorsports Hall of Fame in 2006. A Jaguar XK 120 was the first car that Guthrie bought, and she later bought a Jaguar XK 140 which helped her win two important races. It’s said that Janet had to shell out almost $70,000 for the purchase.
Danny Kaye — CADILLAC 1956, $4,600
Danny Kaye was into all sorts of professions in the entertainment industry. He worked as a singer and a dancer, too. A lot of his money came from his performances in comedy and acting, and by the time he was in retirement, he had enough money to live like a king. It only stands to reason that he’d go with one of the best cars available to him at the time — a Cadillac. This car was a favorite of the celebrity crowd back then and still maintains its classy looks. Back in 1956, $4,600 was a huge deal, so don’t be fooled by the seemingly low price of this car!
Clark Gable — Cadillac 1935, $4,645
$4,645 might not sound like much today, but this car was made back in the 1930s, and that was a time when the U.S. dollar held far more worth. This car would have cost almost $90,000 had it been released today which is extremely expensive since it’s more than what most people make in a year. Clark was one of the best actors that the world has ever known, and his performances in movies like ‘Gone with the Wind’ and ‘It Happened One Night’ really gained popularity back in the 30s. He had enough money to live luxuriously during his retirement until he died in the 60s. His taste in cars was the same as his taste in everything: classy.
Marlene Dietrich — Cadillac 1934, $3,145
The Cadillac 1934 is a monster of a car. Not only is it really easy on the eyes, but it is also huge. $3,145 may sound like something you could easily pay, but once you realize that this amount was more than what most people made in a year back in the 1930s, things will make far more sense. Marlene stands as a beacon of guidance for college students getting degrees in acting because her skills were absolutely legendary in movies like The Blue Angel. And her Cadillac 1934 was a testimony to her huge success back then.
Ann-Margaret — Cadillac 1962, $6,600
Ann-Margaret is one of the most gorgeous actresses to have ever walked on this planet and is still celebrated as one of the greats. She dominated the last century and still isn’t taking things slowly at 77 years of age. Movies like ‘Bye Bye Birdie’ and ‘Viva Las Vegas’ have ensured her permanent place in the history of great actresses and actors. Her taste in cars was obviously pretty good because she went for the Cadillac which was one of the best vehicles money could buy for most of the 20th century. This woman handled her finances like a pro, and without any fears of bankruptcy whatsoever.
Sugar Ray Robinson — Cadillac 1950, $5,000
Boxers who are successful tend to make a lot of money during their lives, and Sugar Ray was one very successful boxer. He was so good in the ring that sportswriters were compelled to create the pound for pound ranking system which allowed them to analyze boxers of different weights together. Sugar Ray left a mark on the world of boxing and ensured that he’d never have to face bankruptcy due to his amazing career. His endless flow of money allowed him to purchase whatever he wanted, and since the Cadillac was so hot during his day, he went ahead and bought one.
Diana Dors — Cadillac 1956, $4,600
Loved by many people of the era, the 1956 Cadillac is one of the most famous cars in existence. Just like luxury cars such as Lamborghinis are popular today, the Cadillac had a monopoly over comfortable and dignified travel in the last century. Of course, that means that only the richest people could afford them. Even though the car is estimated at $4,600, this meant much more when it was actually released since the dollar was worth far more. Dianna Dors never had to fear bankruptcy during her peak and had more than enough to buy just about any car that she would have liked, and that happened to be the Cadillac.
Marvin Gaye — Cadillac 1967, $5,625
Don’t let the low price of $5,626 confuse you – it meant much more in the 60s. This amount was pretty much close to a year’s worth of salary for the average person, so it was costly. The Cadillac was famous among celebrities and seen as a status symbol, which meant that anyone who rose to fame and money would really want to buy one. Marvin was among those people, and once his bank account started filling up, he went ahead and bought a Cadillac. His albums like What’s Going On and I Want You were terrific hits all over the world.
Sophia Loren — Mercedes 300 SL, $1.46 Million
Imagine owning a car that costs more than multiple houses combined! This Mercedes 300 SL just goes to show how successful Sophia was during the peak of her career. She was the center of attention and lived like a queen, and that wouldn’t be complete without a luxurious car. Some cars of the same model have sold for even more than that! Performing in movies like ‘Two Women and Houseboat’ turned Sophia into one of the most famous women of her generation and did wonders for her bank account. Even though she’s not active in the acting world anymore, she’s still elegant as ever and hasn’t aged at all!
Marlon Brando — Ford Thunderbird 1955, $2,444
While the original price of this car was only $2,444, that doesn’t mean that this car came cheap! It’s pretty expensive and only seems cheap due to how much the U.S. dollar has depreciated over the years. Back in 1955, this amount would have been close to half a year’s worth of salary for the average American. As one of the most iconic actors in history, Marlon earned the right to pick any car of his choosing to call his own. He died relatively recently in 2004, and the world will always remember his performances in movies like ‘The Godfather.’
Rita Hayworth — Cadillac 1953, $7,750
$7,750 might not seem like a lot of money, but anyone who spent that much on a car back in the 1950s would have to be incredibly rich because the dollar was worth almost ten times what it is today. The 1953 Cadillac is a luxurious car and is made to offer the most comfortable ride possible. Rita deserved it after a lifelong career as a successful actress. She’s performed in movies such as Gilda and Cover Girl which really helped her pile up money in her bank account. She lived a pretty glamorous life before passing away in 1987, although the world won’t be forgetting her amazing movies any time soon.
Kim Novak — Cadillac 195, $13K
While you might think that $13,000 isn’t a lot, you need to keep in mind the year when Kim Novak bought her brand new Cadillac — 1957. Today, the price of this amazing car would be well above $100,000! Being one of the best actresses of her time, Kim had no problems buying the car, of course. She’s been in popular television shows like ‘Falcon Crest’ and ‘Malibu,’ while also acting in films like ‘Vertigo’ and ‘Picnic.’ Although she’s now retired, her excellent performances built up her credibility and easily allowed her to purchase luxurious items like the Cadillac which was one of the most popular cars among celebrities back in the day.
Angie Dickinson — Cadillac 1962, $6,600
Keep in mind that this car was bought by Angie Dickinson in 1962 which was when $6,600 was more than the average yearly salary for most people in the country! However, Angie had absolutely no problems purchasing it, mainly due to her amazing career which helped her fill her bank account all the way to the top. Angie is 87 years old now; however, she did spend her youth spectacularly. Some of her most popular movies include ‘Dressed to Kill’ and ‘Rio Bravo,’ while a TV show that helped her earn a lot of fame was ‘Police Woman.’
Bing Crosby — Cadillac 1947, $3,195
Back in 1947, this Cadillac was something everyone dreamed of having, but pretty much no one could afford one. Only people as accomplished as Bing Crosby had the ability and luxury to purchase such a widely admired car. $3,195 might not seem like a lot, but one dollar back in 1947 is worth almost $12 dollars today, so spending over $3k for a car was pricey back then. Purchasing such a high profile car wasn’t a problem for someone like Bing who never had to fear bankruptcy. His performances in movies like ‘White Christmas’ and ‘Holiday Inn’ made him really popular back in the day, and he had been living luxuriously till the day he died in 1977.
