Celebrities making millions of dollars can afford to splurge on some of the most expensive cars in the world.
Have you ever wondered how much your favorite celebrity is worth? What car do they drive? The model and its top speed? How about how much it costs?! Some of these celebrities you see on television drive some of the most expensive vehicles in the world. Some celebrities prefer antiques, while others prefer the newest hi-tech speed demons.
Vehicles become monumental status symbols once a world-renowned person lays their hands on them. These people are blessed with the connections and money to get and buy anything they desire; some of them have their cars custom-built to fit their heart’s desires. And for that, they pay a fortune.
10 Jay Leno – 1994 McLaren F1 (Est. $12M)
With the kind of cars Jay Leno keeps in his garage, you would wonder whether he has any favorite car. Leno is one of the richest comedians, and he has a crazy car collection worth close to 50 million dollars. Among them is this 12 million-dollar 1994 McLaren F1.
He probably doesn’t have one favorite ride, but if his garage caught fire, we assume he would save this McLaren before anything else as only 107 units of the F1 were produced.
9 Jay Z – Maybach Exelero (Approx. $7 M)
This is the definition of a limited edition vehicle. The Exelero was built in 2004 and was first owned by fellow rapper, Bryan ‘Birdman’ Williams, and later sold to Jay-Z at a mind-boggling figure.
The fun part of the Maybach Exelero is that it is not only an extremely expensive celebrity-owned vehicle; it is also one of the rarest vehicles in the world that you will not find in a showroom.
8 Floyd Mayweather – Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita ($4.6M)
One of the highest-paid athletes in the world, Floyd Mayweather, owns a Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita. The ultra-modern car manufacturing company, Koenigsegg, built only two units of this, specifically designed for the super-rich – and the popular world boxing champion perfectly fits in that category.
Floyd Mayweather paid a whopping 4.6 million dollars to own this hypercar, which he later sold at an undisclosed price. The boxer also owns a fleet of expensive cars in Miami and Los Angeles – he has one of the fastest-growing collections in the world.
7 Cristiano Ronaldo – Ferrari LaFerrari ($2.6M)
The Ferrari LaFerrari has some of the rarest features you can ever find in a car, making it unique. The Portuguese superstar soccer player paid 2 million dollars to own one of the costliest cars in the world.

Anyone in comedy who got to know or even just meet Carl Reiner felt that they had been given a great gift.⠀ ⠀ His comedy energy was one of pure joyfulness. It’s an unusual quality in our world and I have always tried to emulate him that way.⠀ ⠀ When we shot the first episodes of my series, Carl came to visit.⠀ When he said, ⠀ “This is the same stage where we made, ‘The Dick Van Dyke Show’!”⠀ I felt the stars lining up. ⠀ ⠀ When I helped present him with the Mark Twain Prize I said, “Mark Twain was pretty funny but I think he’d be more excited to receive 'The Carl Reiner Prize’." ⠀ ⠀ We lost an angel today.⠀ ⠀ Jerry
