Top 10 Most Expensive Celebrity Cars
1. Jay Z’s Maybach Exelero
The Maybach Exelero’s 700HP V12 engine reaches 60 mph in 4.4 seconds, slowed a little by its mammoth weight of 2.6 tonnes. It still has a maximum speed of 220 mph, and definitely tops out this list in terms of cost, with Jay Z forking out $8 million for his Maybach.
2. Simon Cowell’s Bugatti Veyron
Although not quite as flashy as some of the others on this list, the Bugatti Veyron held the title of fastest car in the world for quite a while. The car goes from 0 to 60 in 2.5 seconds, and set Cowell back a hefty $1.7 million.
3. Steven Tyler’s Hennessey Venom GT Spider
The Hennessey Venom GT is most famous for battling Bugatti for the title of the fastest car in the world, and the Hennessey took the title with a top speed of 270 mph. Speed like that doesn’t come cheap though, with Steven Tyler paying $1.1 million for the Spider.
4. Jerry Seinfeld Porsche 959
Seinfeld has one of the largest Porsche collections in the world and one of these 46 cars is the $700,000 Porsche 959. Only 337 have ever been created and sadly Jerry can’t actually drive it in the US as it doesn’t pass US emissions test!
5. Nicolas Cage – Ferrari Enzo
The Enzo was made to mark Ferrari’s Formula 1 success, and the only people allowed to buy one were specially selected by Ferrari’s management. It’s 650 HP V12 engine allows it to go from 0 to 60 mph in a little over 3 seconds. Although this car only set Cage back $670,000 at the time, it’d fetch over $1 million now, as only 400 were ever made.
6. Jay Leno’s Mercedes SLR McLaren
Apparently the Mercedes SLR is Jay’s favourite car, although it’s certainly not his only vehicle. In fact, Leno collects cars (he stores them in his massive garage) and has created a Web site dedicated to them!
7. David Beckham’s Roll Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe
Rolls Royce has been representative of luxury for a long time, and Beckham’s $407,000 Coupe is no exception. It has a 6.75L V12 engine and does 0 to 60 mph in 5.6 seconds. It is a luxury car though, so it only goes 150 mph.
8. P Diddy’s Maybach
This car was a very very generous 16th birthday present. Sean P. Diddy Combs gave it to his son Justin and because he couldn’t drive yet, included a driver to take him around New York City. Very flash for a first car!
9. Paris Hilton Bentley GT Continental
Paris Hilton added a diamond-encrusted dashboard to her pink Bentley and bought the car as a Christmas present for herself in 2008. Everything on the car is pink and it’s very bling (and over the top)!
10. Kim Kardashian’s Ferrari 458 Italia
Kim picked up this stunning white Ferrari for a mere $325,000. It’s a 4.5L V8, generating 650 HP, and can go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds.
