Corvette C7 Stingray, $60K
Former UFC martial arts champion Ronda Rousey mixes it up on the WWE circuit these days. “Rowdy” the wrestler performs for the industry-standard Raw brand. Her nickname was acquired by Roddy “Rowdy” Piper. Rousey is one of the world’s best athletes and a savvy ambassador of her brand. Recently, she’s taking a break from the pro wrestling gig to conceive a child.
She and her hubby Travis Browne announced the happy news on Instagram. She may not return until 2021. The director of Entourage said she was cast because “she’s beautiful, and she can kick your butt.” It’s no surprise then, she prefers a little muscle behind her driving machines. In that movie, she sported a candy apple red Chevy Corvette Stingray. Apparently, she got to keep it. It’s a 455 HP 6.2-liter V8 that hits a top speed of 185 mph. Respectable.
Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir, $2.5 Million
Canadian rapper, Aubrey “Drake” Graham turned his teen acting profession into a smash-hit hip-hop career producing a net worth of $100 million. He invests a healthy portion of his proceeds into his collection. One of the most precious vehicles he has owned is the monster hypercar, the Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir. This supercar is super-rare. Bugatti, a 1909 French automotive company, founded by Ettore Bugatti (now under the Volkswagen umbrella), produced only 15 of the exclusive Sang Noir models. Like the standard Veyron, it features an 8.0-liter W16 engine.
With 4-turbochargers, it delivers a 987-horsepower machine capable of speeds up to 253 mph. Drake’s was black and shiny with an eye-popping orange interior, the only Sang Noir in Canada. He put it up for sale in 2014 due to mechanical issues. It was not his only hypercar. He owns a Lamborghini Aventador Roadster and a McLaren 675 LT.
Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, $150K
Amber Rose made a splash when she customized her Jeep Wrangler into a Bubblicious-pink off-road machine. The fashion model and former girlfriend of Kanye West ended up marrying rapper Wiz Khalifa instead, however, that didn’t work out either. She loves her Jeep, though, and she loves to dress it up in new styles. First, she chose the Barbie-look wrapped in hot pink. Then she added chrome and some serious off-road features like a bull bar. Finally, she’s taken her Jeep back to its original form. She always trusts Roadstarr Motorsports to polish her Wrangler.
Most recently they’ve dolled it up in a respectable matte army green wrap with black trim. She got her foot in the door of the entertainment industry starring in hip-hop music videos. Before she was rich and famous, Rose had to work as a stripper to support her family. Now she’s a feminist making money legit.
Maybach Exelero, $8.8 Million
Music maven Birdman was born Bryan Christopher Williams. The popular hip-hop artist is also a shrewd record executive. His record label Cash Money Records produces the Rich Gang project promoting new artists like Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan. It’s about the money. Birdman already owned two $1 million-plus rides before he got into this exclusive Maybach Exelero. He is yet another rapper who owns a Bugatti Veyron. (Lil’ Wayne truly started something!) He already owned a $1.35 million Maybach Landaulet, but he had to have the $8 million Maybach model too.
He reported as much on his Twitter page, announcing the acquisition and the kingly sum he paid for it: “They got this new Maybach that I want that costs $8 million. I gotta have it.” He was hoping to customize his luxury vehicle in red. No word if the purchase from European entrepreneur Arnaud Massartic went through, they hadn’t heard back from the rapper. But he posted a picture on Twitter, it must be true! Regardless, $8 million is a lot of cash. He could have picked up a decent mansion or a sleek New York penthouse for that.
Audi R8, $250K
Superstar Justin Bieber loves to drive fast and customize his rides. He dumped $150,000 styling out this Audi R8 to his perfection. Meow! The car really scoots, hitting 60 mph in approximately four seconds. Cruising the streets of L.A. or Miami, Bieber’s known to drag race. Hip-hop singer Everlast once detailed an encounter with the Bieb at a red light for The Joe Rogan Experience host. They raced off when it turned green. Sadly, Bieber no longer has the leopard-print Audi and has gone black. He does have a wide variety of luxury and exotic cars, however.
In the Italian wing, he owns a Lamborghini Gallardo, a Lamborghini Aventador, a Ferrari 458 Italia, and Ferrari 430. On the German side, he has a Mercedes-Benz Maybach S600, and a Porsche 997 Turbo. The Danish electric-hybrid eco-friendly supercar shows he cares about global warming. And, finally, his American wing includes a Cadillac CTS V Coupe, in matte black, also known as his “Bat Mobile.”
