CELEBRITY CAR RICH LIST: From 'Beyoncé & Jay-Z's £20M Rolls-Royce Boat Tail' to 'Ronaldo's £17M supercar horde' and Bieber's 'Robocop' racecar
JUST when you thought Beyoncé and Jay-Z couldn't get any more flash, they have reportedly splashed out on Rolls-Royce’s new £20million Boat Tail supercar.
The flashy convertible is the world’s most expensive new car and has a built-in fridge to keep champagne at a perfect temperature of six degrees, a parasol, cocktail tables and chairs.
The chart-topping couple have been linked to the ultra-high-end car due to their vast wealth – reportedly £1.27billion ($1.8bn) – and their love for luxury vehicles.
But they aren’t the only celebs with extremely expensive tastes when it comes to cars.
Here we reveal the A-listers with hugely pricey car collections.
The Juventus footballer’s supercar collection is reportedly worth £17million and features some of the world’s most sought after motors.
He’s reported to be the owner of an £8.5million Bugatti Centodieci, which can go from 0-62mph in 2.4 seconds, and only 10 of them were made.
The extravagant motor joined multiple others Bugattis in his collection including the Chiron, Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse and a La Voiture Noire.
The 36-year-old also owns a £1.4million Ferrari Monza – one of at least three Ferraris the football ace has on his drive.
The exact number of luxury vehicles in Ronaldo’s fleet is unknown but it’s estimated there are up to 20.
When Jonathan Ross asked the Portugese international how many cars he owned in 2015, he flatly replied: “I don’t know.”
The reality TV star became the youngest American billionaire in 2019 and while her fortune has fallen to £493million ($700m) according to Forbes, she still has very expensive tastes.
Kylie, 23, had a fleet of costly cars including a £2.1million ($3m) white Bugatti Chiron and an orange Lamborghini Aventador worth £305,000.
In 2018, The Sun reported that she paid for exterior and wheel rims on her £171,000 Mercedes G-Wagon to be painted orange “just for the summer”.
Last year, ELLE Australia claimed she also owned the ultra-rare LaFerrari Aperta, which cost £1.5million ($2.2m).
They estimated her collection of cars to be worth more than £9.8million ($14m) – but others claim the total is closer to £3.5million.
At 27 years old, the Baby crooner has an enviable array of the world’s most expensive supercars that are worth millions of pounds.
Justin owns a flashy Ferrari F430, which has a top speed of 200mph, and a Ferrari 458, alongside a Lamborghini Aventador and a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport.
In February, TMZ reported that he paid to have a few tweaks made to his £238,000 Rolls-Royce Wraith to give it a futuristic look.
'Straight outta NASA!'
The vehicle now has a slick silver frame, semi-concealed wheels and a tall grill, which the site described as looking “straight outta NASA” or a “Robocop” film.
This isn’t the hitmaker’s first customisation – in the past he pimped out an Audi R8 with leopard-print exterior and made his Cadillac CTS look like the Batmobile.
FLOYD MAYWEATHER JR
The boxing legend lived up to his nickname “Money” after splashing out on a £3.6million Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita, back in 2015.
The supercar was one of two vehicles made with extravagant Diamond Weave exterior finish and could reach breakneck speeds up to 250mph.
Floyd was reportedly forced to sell his prized motor in 2017 to pay tax money he owed to the IRS (Internal Revenue Service).
The Koenigsegg had only 1,947 miles on the clock when it was listed at Pebbly Beach Auction, in Monterey, California.
The cars in his Las Vegas mansion, some of which has never been driven, are reportedly worth £10.5million ($15m).
The Rude Boy singer is worth £423million ($600m) and has an impressive fleet of cars to match.
Rihanna, 33, is a fan of quick cars and has at least two superspeed Porsches, including the 997 Turbo and 911 Turbo S.
She was gifted a £530,000 ($750,000) Lamborghini Aventador by her ex Chris Brown.
It’s believed the singer bought him a £710,000 ($1m) Mercedes SLR McLaren, which she kept after their final break up in 2013.
Also among her line-up is a Maybach 57S, which cost around £353,000 ($500,000), and a Chevrolet Suburban LTZ, a luxury family car that can seat up to nine passengers.
The WAP singer, who is worth £21million ($30m), has an extremely enviable array of cars – despite being unable to drive.
Cardi and her rapper husband Offset have matching Lamborghini Aventadors – his is green and hers is blue.
She also has a chauffeur-driven Mercedes Maybach, a Rolls-Royce Wraith, a Bentley Bentayga, a Mercedes G-Wagon and more.
Despite having a long list of cars, the 28-year-old revealed she was yet to pass her driving test during a 2018 episode of Carpool Karaoke.
When James Corden quizzed why she needed so many motors when she couldn’t drive Cardi revealed they were “to take pictures with”.
BEYONCÉ AND JAY-Z
The celebrity couple are linked to Rolls-Royce's new Boat Tail after certain design features on the custom-made car seemed to perfectly suit their needs.
The manufacturer has kept tight-lipped about the car’s owners – but described them as “extraordinary clients” with “flamboyant” taste.
The vehicle, which can go from 0-60mph in five seconds and has a 155mph top speed,was said to be their “most ambitious project yet”.
However, Rolls-Royce did reveal The Boat Tail was made to store the mystery couple’s “favourite vintages of Armand de Brignac” – a luxury brand of champagne.
The tipple, which sells for around £300 a bottle, is a well-known favourite of Beyoncé and Jay-Z – who brought along their own personal stash to sip at the Golden Globes last year.
Last week, The Telegraph also claimed there could also be a link between the car’s “oceanic blue” paint job and the name of the couple’s nine-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy.
The Boat Tail’s £20million price tag would rule out many celebrities but not necessarily Jay-Z and Beyoncé – and the pair have bought a number of super high-end cars in the past.
The Halo singer purchased a £1.75million Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport, which has a top speed of 253mph, for Jay-Z's 40th birthday in 2010.
Jay-Z is also reported to be the owner of a £5.6million ($8m) Maybach Exelero that featured in his 2006 music video The Lost One.
Other supercars linked to the hip-hop star include a Ferrari F430 Spider, a Lexus GS300, a Pagani Zonda F, a Corvette C1 and a Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII.
Jay-Z was also said to have bought Beyoncé a 1959 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II convertible limousine for her 25th birthday.
The luxury vintage vehicle had a blue leather interior, wide seats and could go from 0-60mph in 10.9 seconds.
Beyoncé is also believed to be the owner of a Chrysler Pacifica, Mercedes-Benz SLR Mclaren, Cadillac Escalade and a luxury Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Limousine, which was fitted with its own bathroom.
