When people are talking about what they would do if they came into a lot of money, a lot of them say that they would end up buying at least one expensive car and possibly start a collection. You can make a car collection for just a few thousand dollars, but it will probably be made exclusively of cars that don’t run. If you want a collection of luxury cars, it could set you back millions of dollars.
There are plenty of celebrities that collect cars that cost six figures or more, with some making it their primary hobby. Let’s take a look at the celebrities who have amassed the most impressive collections and break down how much they may have spent on acquiring all of their rides.
On the list of greatest boxers ever, Floyd Mayweather finds himself toward the top of the list. The Michigan native won all 50 of his professional fights before retiring, earning himself 15 world championships in the process, as well as a bronze medal in the 1996 Summer Olympics.
Mayweather owns a car collection that’s estimated to be well over $20 million. The most expensive piece in his collection is a Rolls-Royce section that set him back more than $3 million alone. Mayweather owns several Bugatti Veyrons, his favorite model. There are plenty of Lamborghinis, Ferraris, and much more in his collection, too. What makes Mayweather’s collection so unique is an identical collection in two different cities with all of his cars in Los Angeles in black and all of his Las Vegas cars in white.
Lady Gaga had one of the most successful debut albums ever when she released “The Fame” in 2007 and never looked back as a pop star. Thanks to hits including “Poker Face”, “Telephone”, and “Bad Romance”, she became a music legend and has also dabbled in acting with great success.
Some might not take Lady Gaga as a car aficionado, but she has a collection that’s unrivaled by just about any other celebrity. Instead of going with a long list of sports cars like Mayweather, Gaga likes to stick to classic cars. Some of her cars include a 1965 Lincoln Continental convertible and a 1970 Chevy El Camino. Gaga also has some newer cars including a Lamborghini Huracan that she drove from Texas to California.
On the Mount Rushmore of professional wrestlers, you would have to include John Cena. He started with the WWE in 2002 and found himself in first place for most world championships in the promotion’s history. Cena has also branched out into acting, starring in films such as “Bumblebee”, “The Suicide Squad”, and “The Fast & Furious 9”.
Cena’s car collection spans all eras from his 19606 Dodge Hemi Charger 426 to his newer Lamborghinis. Cena is a big fan of muscle cars and owns a Dodge Viper, Chevy Corvette, a Ford GT, and much more. In terms of diversity, Cena might take the cake for celebrities as he doesn’t stick to just one kind of car. It’s estimated that his cars combined are worth over $5 million, even if his favorite car is the simple 1989 Jeep Wrangler.
YouTube has helped make stars out of common people, but it all started with Justin Bieber. After being discovered thanks to his videos on the internet, Bieber was signed to a record deal and became perhaps the biggest pop star in the world. Some of Bieber’s biggest hits include “Sorry”, “Love Yourself”, and “Baby”.
Bieber has a little bit of everything in his car collection, and that even includes a Hummer H2 and a minivan. Bieber also has several luxury cars including an Audi R8 and a Bugatti that was gifted to him by rapper/producer Birdman. Out of all of his cars, though, Bieber’s favorite that he’s owned was the Cadillac CTS-V.
Born Dwayne Carter Jr., Lil’ Wayne got his rap career off the ground even before becoming a teenager as he was signed to Cash Money Records. He then went on to become one of the biggest names in rap thanks to hit songs including “Lollipop”, “A Milli”, and “6 Foot 7 Foot” to name a few.
Lil’ Wayne has spent over $5 million to build his impressive car collection which includes a Porsche Boxter and Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. The most expensive car in his collection is a Bugatti Veyron which set him back nearly $2 million. The Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead also set him back another half-million. When Lil’ Wayne is giving a gift to someone, his mind immediately goes to cars.
