The 5 Most Expensive Celebrity Cars
Paul Pappalardo, Jay Z, Flo Rida, The Game, and Rapper Birdman own the cars with the biggest sticker prices. Some of these cars may seem like they are overpriced to the average consumer.
Overpriced is an understatement, but there is no word big enough to describe the cost to own some of these cars.
Paul Pappalardo’s Ferrari 250 GTO
Between 1962 and 1964, Ferrari only produced 39 of the 250 GTO model. This contributes to the higher price tag, though Pappalardo’s GTO has carried the highest price tag in the history of the car.
So how much does his Ferrari cost? Get ready to be flabbergasted. Pappalardo’s car, at the most expensive of the celebrity cars, cost $52 million!
Jay Z’s Maybach Excelero
One might call this car the star of his “Lost One” music video. Even though Jay Z is dropping the rhymes, the Excelero takes center stage. This car reaches a top speed of 218.38 miles per hour.
Jay Z picked his up for $8 million, which seems like a lot less than Pappalardo’s wheels but is still a hefty price tag.
The Bugatti Veyron
The next three cars on the most expensive list for celebrities are all Bugatti Veyrons. The Bugatti Veyron has top speeds upwards of 250 mph, and the make of this model is enough on its own garner attention…and demand a high sticker.
This car is one of those where if you have to ask how much it costs, you probably can’t afford it. As proof, check out the three celebrities rounding out our list of top 5 most expensive cars:
- Flo Rida paid $2.7 million for his Golden Veyron.
- The Game paid $2.2 million.
- Rapper Birdman picked up his Veyron for $2 million.
What makes the Bugatti Veyron so popular for celebrities looking to spend a couple million dollars on one car? As mentioned above, the fact that it’s a Bugatti can be reason enough.
It’s also pulled in awards on the BBC show Top Gear, including the Best Car Award and Car of the Decade (2000-2009). This car is the fastest car money can buy that’s legal to drive on the street. So even if these celebrities aren’t putting the pedal to the floor, knowing these cars can reach such a speed might create enough gravitas to make the price worth it.
