Auburn Speedster $130K Here’s a guy with some class. Rapper CeeLo Green purchased this fabulous vintage Auburn Speedster for a cool $130,000. The Speedster exhibited affluence and class in the 1930s, which is readily apparent today. The Auburn Speedster is a rare vintage car. The manufacturer of the Auburn Speedster went out of business just a couple of years after the lovely car was built. No false advertising here, it was speedy! In 1935, this car could hit 100 mph. It was an amazing speed for the time.
CeeLo is a Southern rapper born in Atlanta. He hooked up with Danger Mouse to get his start and has moved on to make television appearances. He’s probably due for another album release by now. Meanwhile, his showbiz career keeps him busy.
Lamborghini Murciélago $380K Janet Jackson is known for her legendary music career, nearly overshadowing little brother Michael Jackson’s fame, and for the “wardrobe malfunction.” Isn’t it funny how important seemingly minor events become? This gorgeous golden yellow Lamborghini Murciélago is one of the superstar’s favorite supercars to drive. It’s no surprise the pop diva chose to purchase the $380,000 sleek machine. Lamborghini is a legendary company.
It was founded by Ferrucio Lamborghini. The history of the supercar starts in 1963 when Ferrucio Lamborghini challenged Ferrari and unveiled the 350 GTV. In 1966, Lamborghini took the competition by the horns with the Miura sports coupe, leading to the Aventador and the Murciélago. The hypercar was born. Jackson’s model was introduced in 2001.
Ferrari 458 $291K The world’s greatest sprinter Usain Bolt lives up to his name. “Lightning Bolt” is a nine-time Olympic gold medalist who was born in Jamaica in 1986. In 2018 he retired from sports after his footballer career fizzled. Bolt’s many sponsorships include Puma, Gatorade, Virgin Media, and Apple. His social media income from sponsorships makes him the third-highest earner in the athletics area. He also co-founded an electric scooter company.
His entrepreneurial spirit and his sponsorships allow him a net worth of $90 million, hence the Ferrari 458. Bolt loves his Ferrari. It’s the only thing faster than he is. He reveled in the rare opportunity to test-drive the 48 Italia at Ferrari’s test track Maranello, Italy. Of course, he had to have it. After the test-drive, he said, “It’s a little bit like me; very reactive and determined!”
McLaren F1 £640K Rowan Atkinson made money on his McLaren. He spent £640K on an exceptionally rare, beautiful new 1997 McLaren F1. With a top speed of 240 mph, it was the world’s fastest car for ten years until the Koenigsegg CCR passed it up in 2005. The British comedian a.k.a. Mr. Bean was a very proud owner of one of the only 106 performance machines manufactured by McLaren. But he bade farewell to it in 2015.
Even though Atkinson crashed his deep-hued burgundy baby, not once, but twice, costing about $1.35 million in insurance payments to repair it, he was able to sell it for a significant profit. The insurance claim resulted in the largest insurance payout in the U.K. (Imagining the cost of his next insurance policy is absolutely mind-boggling.) Atkinson calls his F1 the greatest supercar ever made. It zooms 0-60 in 3.4 seconds and contains a V12 627 HP engine. He’ll likely miss the car that holds 41,000 miles of road-trip memories. It sold at auction for £8 million, or $12 million. He won’t miss that insurance premium!
Cadillac XTS $45K Financial markets wizard Warren Buffet has made a cushy career out of boosting profits as CEO of Berkshire Hathaway. As an investment prodigy, Buffet started picking stocks at the tender age of 11. Adjusted for inflation, he made an equivalent of $53,000 by the time he turned 16. At 89, his accrued wealth designates him as one of America’s richest people. Not just that, but with an $87 billion net worth, he’s the third-richest person in the world.
The billionaire is known for his philanthropy and frugal lifestyle. He eats breakfast at McDonald’s and opts to use a flip-phone (the original one, not the new version). When it comes to cars, he splurged on this 2015 Cadillac XTS, paying $45,295 for it. To purchase the Caddy, Buffet traded in his eight-year-old Cadillac DTS which had only 19,000 miles on it. It seems the dealership scored a great deal too. He doesn’t drive more than 3,000 miles per year, so a car is a low priority. Besides, his private jet is probably faster.
