Chevrolet Bel Air $99K NASCAR racer Kyle Busch has been dominating the track by out-winning drivers consistently. These guys get paid per victory. Busch does a victory lap practically every other race, replete with the requisite 360 burn-outs that are greatly anticipated and appreciated by NASCAR fans. Busch loves his fans, he loves racing for M&M, he loves fast cars and is lucky enough to race one each week. Zooming around the track at 180-200 mph for four hours at a time, what a fantastic job!
Forgetting where he was, in 2011 Busch was cited for reckless driving when he “got carried away” test driving a Lexus LFA. He was clocked at 128 mph. Apparently, ‘I’m-a-professional-I-know-what-I’m-doing’ didn’t pan out. Collecting vintage cars is a hobby of his. He has this classic 1956 Bel Air two-tone coupe. He purchased the beautiful old car for $99,000. To acquire it, he sold off his classic yellow Corvette Z06 and an ultra-classic 1969 Camaro. Driving the Bel Air helps him keep his speed down.
Lamborghini Aventador $1.1 Million NFL star Joe Haden played cornerback for the Cleveland Browns. His team may not have fared too well, but Haden scored big with a $50 million contract. He put his salary to good use. He bought a Lamborghini Aventador and had it custom-painted in Cleveland Browns-orange. Team pride. He also owns Akon’s former Lamborghini Murciélago. He picked that one up on eBay.
Other first-class “whips,” as he calls them, that he owns are the Range Rover, Mercedes-Benz S-Class, Bentley Continental, BMW X6 and a Rolls Royce. Rim Source Motorsports is his custom shop of choice in Baltimore. His Range Rover was refitted with 24” Maglia wheels and wrapped in white. He made over his Mercedes in matte white as a birthday gift for himself a few years back. He used Eternal Trendz custom for that job.
Dale Earnhardt, Jr.
Camaro $3K Like his father, Dale Earnhardt, Jr. is a racing great. He’s a two-time Daytona 500 winner at Daytona International Speedway with a $400 million net worth. This makes him the wealthiest NASCAR racer ever. He’s semi-retired now, but he has fun racing the No. 8 Chevrolet Camaro for JR Motorsports and doing commentary as an NBC NASCAR analyst.
No surprise, he’s a classic car buff. He picked up a vintage 1967 Chevrolet Camaro for $3,539 after having spotted it at Charlotte Motor Speedway during Auto Fair. He purchased it because he loves the car’s feel of power and grip. It’s one of his favorites. Earnhardt had it fully restored and customized with NASCAR features, subtle enough so that anyone would love it. Classy.
Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita $4.8 Million Ah, the Koenigsegg. Known for out-performing the Bugatti Veyron to become the world’s fastest car. This magnificent feat occurred in November of 2017. Also noteworthy, it doubled the price of the latter. The Koenigsegg hypercar, a product of Sweden, came out of the 25-year-old performance machine automotive manufacturer. In 2002, their first street-legal car, the CC8S was introduced. What our undefeated world boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, Jr. owns here is the formidable CCXR Trevita, unveiled in 2006 and one of only two models built. “Trevita,” from Swedish, is “three whites,” referring to the Trevita’s body which is made of Koenigsegg’s proprietary diamond-coated carbon fiber.
It runs on gasoline and biofuel reaching top speeds of 245 mph. In 2017, it was the Koenigsegg Agera that beat the Bugatti at a blistering 278 mph. For Mayweather, owning the rare Koenigsegg is a statement. Similar to an art collector, it’s akin to owning an original masterwork, just as many of the rare and valuable cars on this list. World-class athletes like Mayweather who hold hundreds of millions of dollars in net worth get to make exciting investments!
Bugatti Veyron $1.7 Million You probably won’t be surprised to learn Flo Rida, also known as Tramar Lacel Dillard, is from Florida. He’s an extremely successful hip-hop artist with a flashy grin. With his success, what’s not to smile about? Well, maybe that Miami Beach DUI acquired while cruising one of his Bugatti Veyrons, the $1.7 million chrome wrapped one.
Pictured here is his other $1.7 million Veyron, wrapped in gold chrome. It’s eye-popping, yet indulgent, like a giant gold-foil chocolate Easter Bunny. Hit songs like “Low” and his reboot “Right Round” of the Eighties Dead or Alive band “You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)” have fueled his tanks. More to come. He dropped the news on Instagram that an album’s due out this year.
