Ford GT $400K American pro wrestler and Twitter self-help guru John Cena is an entertainment pop star personality too. He’s got it all, this $460,000 liquid blue Ford GT to boot. Or had. When he sold it, he made more than $1 million more than he paid for it! Winner! Until he was slapped with a $75,000 lawsuit by Ford for selling it. America’s oldest carmaker, in an apparent hissy fit, complained that Cena’s high-profile celebrity discount on the limited-edition, 647 horsepower GT had been sorely disrespected. Ford won.
Cena settled for an undisclosed amount. He failed to notice the fine print, anti-flip clause he signed up for when he first purchased the supercar from Ford. In the industry, cushy deals with the rich and famous to buy and promote their brand on social media is more common than you think.
Lamborghini Aventador $400K The performance machine designed for rocketing speed and steady handling is called the Lamborghini Aventador. In Italian, it means “fighting bull.” Nicki Minaj may be the only person in the world capable of making an aggressive bull blush. There are no words. The rap act Nicki Minaj, as she calls herself, flows into fashion modeling, acting, any genre of performing. She’s the most-followed rapper on Instagram, she’s been a judge on American Idol.
She’s a super-pop phenom who digs customizing the most virility-charged supercar into a Barbie convertible. Is it a statement of feminine strength and independence? Or a mortification of her gender? The entertainer has a few other options tucked away. A Range Rover, a Maybach, and a 1965 El Camino muscle car.
Bugatti Veyron Super Sport $3 Million Tom Brady, the greatest pro football quarterback who ever lived, or at least the winningest quarterback in NFL history, hardly requires an introduction. Anti-Patriots fans defame his name and troll him on a daily basis, ostensibly, out of a lack of having a life. Brady has a great life. The health nut is married to German supermodel Gisele Bündchen who makes twice as much as he does and bought him a $3 million Bugatti Veyron Super Sport as a gift.
In 2017, Brady teamed up with the British Aston Martin luxury brand. He loves his Aston Martin, but the gear head doesn’t discriminate. He drives a Rolls Royce Ghost, Audi R8, and, of course, the Veyron.
Mercedes-Benz SLS Convertible $135K The stunning Candice Swanepoel, a South African fashion supermodel and Victoria's Secret Angel, is one of the highest-paid models in the world. Forbes ranked her at 8th in 2016. She’s married to Brazilian model Hermann Nicoli who she met in Paris when she was 17. They have two children and live in Manhattan and Brazil. Swanepoel said that being a mom of two very young children is “intense!”
She’s a down-to-earth mama who promotes women’s rights to breastfeed in public by sharing photos on Instagram. She also posed with her infant in her Tesla Model X. The gorgeous mother owns a Mercedes-Benz SLS Convertible, too. Unlike the Tesla, the Mercedes get 19 mpg, tops.
Spyker C8 $350K Wealthy rappers like Akon certainly showcase the world’s most sophisticated cars. This Spyker C8 purchased by Akon for about $350,000 is a supercar worthy of the likes of the Lambo Aventador and Ferrari F12. The Spyker C8 houses a 4.2-liter V8 sourced from Audi and supercharged to 518 hp. It’s a luxury supercar that zips to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds. It comes from a boutique automaker in Holland. Classic rap artist Akon had his Spyker custom finished in white.
He’s finished his entire collection to match. His garage hosts a Porsche Panamera, a Ferrari 458 Italia, a Lamborghini Gallardo and a Lambo Murciélago, all customized in elegant white. It must look like a professional fleet of private luxury transport.
