It’s a given that there’s going to be some nice cars driving around Los Angeles, Miami, and other celebrity havens. Common star vehicles include models like Mercedes-Benz’s G Wagon, a Range Rover, or a Tesla Model X. While these are typical celebrity cars, the picture become more interesting when you take a look at the custom work that certain public figures have put into making vehicles their own.
Let’s dive right into our list highlighting the most standout custom celebrity cars.
10.) What’s One of Kendall Jenner’s Coolest Vintage Cars?
There’s no doubting the fact that the 1969 Chevrolet Camaro is one of the most desirable classic cars. You can say what you will about the Kardashians—but Kendall Jenner takes the 1969 Camaro to the next level with a triple-black design that’s a rare combination of eye-catching and casual. Some of these blacked-out elements include the Camaro SS’s wheels and taillights, while an automatic top serves as the perfect asset for any Southern California driver.
Jenner’s Camaro features a custom front grille, a heavily insulated hood, and a performance package that sports a 427ci V8 engine configuration boasting 425 horsepower. The car’s deep pearl black color holds a bold presence, while aftermarket rims help solidify this car’s custom design.
Reports state that Kendall Jenner paid around $80,000 for this sleek Camaro. While you won’t hear many auto enthusiasts spending their time studying Kardashian vehicles—Kendall Jenner’s car collection remains ultra-impressive as Jay Leno featured her as a guest on his show Jay Leno’s Garage.
To Jenner’s credit, she knows how to drive stick-shift and continues to display her love for American classics by owning models like the 1957 Aqua Stingray convertible. This passion for Vintage muscle is a departure from her family’s well-known taste for European luxury vehicles.
9.) What Vehicle Best Represents Marshawn Lynch?
Former NFL running back Marshawn Lynch is known as “Beast Mode” due to his relentlessly tough mindset that has spawned impressive highlights. Few things say Beast Mode like Marshawn Lynch’s former custom Jeep Wrangler JK. Heck, the car even says “Beast Mode” in bold lettering on its front. While Lynch sold the Jeep a few years back and donated the money to his charity, the truck’s design is too special to overlook.
Bids on this decked-out Jeep began at $90,000. This starting price is well warranted given the model’s following custom features:
- A 4-inch Elite long-arm suspension with Fox shocks
- 37-inch tires
- Mopar Dana 44 axles with 4.88 gears
- Rock sliders
- Fender flairs
- VPR front bumper
Jeep had to cover this car’s body, suspension, and drivetrain before adding more custom features. Green LED headlights give this Wrangler a mean roadway presence while a heat reduction hood and custom grille inserts balance form and function elegantly.
Lynch’s custom Jeep interior consists of but is not limited to black-leather upholstery with green contrast stitching, backrest Beast Mode logos, and Focal Speakers that produce the best quality audio for every off-road adventure.
Check out Lynch’s Fam1st Foundation to see where the money from his Jeep’s sale went to.
8.) What Vehicle Did Justin Bieber Add a Chrome Finish To?
Bieber received his chromed-out Fisker Karma as a birthday gift from his manager. 10% goes a long way when you’re managing Justin Bieber, as this vehicle is easily worth over $100k. While Leonardo DiCaprio can say he purchased the market’s first Fisker Karma—Bieber’s model wins out with its chrome-wrapped design that came courtesy of West Coast Customs. Environmentally conscious celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio loved the Fisker Karma due to its sporty aesthetics and fast performance that utilizes a plug-in hybrid configuration.
Some notable bespoke elements of this car include black 22-inch custom wheels, dark-tinted windows, and under glow from LED lighting strips that change color.
We’re not going to include any lame puns, so let’s say that Bieber’s Fisker Karma had a reputation for attracting bad luck. Bieber was pulled over by police after weaving in and out of traffic at 100 mph on the Hollywood Freeway. A separate incident involved Bieber getting pulled over for the car’s tinted windows. While pulled over, two paparazzi crashed into each other while attempting to document the incident.
Justin Bieber eventually gave this car away after a mere six months of ownership. The only real downside to this car’s design is the glare that other drivers have to endure.
7.) How Much Did Jay-Z Spend on Beyonce’s 1959 Rolls Royce?
Beyonce’s 1959 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud II Convertible stands as one of the most opulent vintage celebrity cars in recent history. It’s no surprise that this stunning vehicle comes courtesy of Jay-Z, as the rapper is known for his own impressive fleet. Jay-Z was estimated to have paid over $1 million dollars for this stunning birthday gift.
The Silver Cloud acted as Rolls Royce’s flagship model from 1955-1966. Rolls Royce didn’t show off the Silver Cloud II until the 1962 Paris salon show. Before releasing the Silver Cloud II, Rolls Royce lowered this vehicle’s weight by over 200 pounds, increased its compression ratio, and incorporated wider front seats.
You might look at this car and peg its 0-60 mph speed as overwhelmingly poor. While Beyonce’s Rolls Royce isn’t as fast as the other cars on this list, her vehicle can jump from 0-60 mph in a respectable ten seconds thanks to a 6.2-liter engine.
This Rolls Royce’s whitewall tires are right out of a classic car magazine. Step inside of this vehicle, and you’ll discover an exquisite blue interior that seamlessly blends with the car’s navy roof. Beyonce could be seen driving this vintage car with the top down in The Hamptons and bravely through the streets of New York City.
6.) What Car Did Justin Bieber Receive for His 21st Birthday?
Justin Bieber makes our list yet again with his 1965 Lincoln Continental that was made by his friends at West Coast Customs. A matte black body, giant chrome wheels, and a lowered suspension help Bieber’s continental stand out from the crowd. The singer’s friends bought this Continental for $20,000 before implementing the custom work. Bieber reportedly loved the car since his favorite show, Entourage, features the same vehicle.
5.) What Ferrari Did Eric Clapton Help Create?
Guitar icon Eric Clapton owns one of the coolest Ferrari’s ever. Clapton paid a hefty $4.7 million dollars to have Ferrari make him a one-off car known as the SP12 EC. This bespoke Ferrari is partially inspired by previous Berlinetta Boxers, with most of the overall design borrowing from the successful 458.
This car’s 512 BB-style bodywork consists of new bumpers, a vintage rear end, and a wide-stretching front grille. A new exhaust system helps fuel the SP12 EPC’s performance, while an original interior mirrors the nuanced talents of Clapton himself.
The Cream guitarist originally wanted his SP12 to feature a V12 engine. Clapton ended up settling for a 570-horsepower V8. Ferrari was unable to grant this request since the car’s 458 chassis wasn’t able to accommodate the larger engine unit.
This car’s initials fittingly represent “Special Project 12 Eric Patrick Clapton” as Ferrari designed this car under the singer’s artistic vision. Clapton’s tastes led to the SP12 EPC featuring an 80s-inspired wedge-shaped design, two-tone coloring, and 512BB-inspired black rocker panels.
It’s fair to say this car strikes a perfect balance between Ferrari nostalgia and modern innovation. The SP12 EPC will look great parked alongside Clapton’s Ferrari collection that includes an Enzo, a 599 Fiorano, and a 250 GT Lusso.
4.) What’s One of Hollywood’s Most Luxurious Vehicles Ever?
Few cars possess the pure elegance that David Beckham’s Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé contained. Custom Savini 24-inch wheels supply Beckham’s Phantom with a confident stance while the fully blacked-out exterior is opulence exemplified. Contrasting elements within this Rolls Royce’s exterior include a steel polished front grille and a Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament that signals a no-nonsense approach to luxury.
Sliding into Beckham’s Phantom reveals a crème shade of leather, front and rear bucket seats for optimal comfort, and back row multimedia systems. A 6.75-liter V12 blesses this Phantom with 453 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque so Beckham could enjoy the ideal mix of performance and sophistication. The thing that surprises us most about Beckham owning this vehicle is how little he drove it. The soccer superstar registered just under 6,000 miles during the car’s first three and a half years on the road. It wasn’t long after this period that Beckham listed the car for $399,888.
Two of this Rolls Royce’s most unique components are its rearward-opening coach doors and wood decking that help establish a first-class design. David Beckham’s 2008 Rolls Royce Phantom became one of Hollywood’s most instantly recognizable cars before its sale in 2012.
3.) What Makes David Beckham’s Aston Martin Vantage V8 Special?
Similar to Justin Bieber, David Beckham makes another appearance on our top ten list with his incredible vintage Aston Martin Vantage V8 Convertible. This spotlight-stealing Aston Martin features a metallic red finish and a cream interior that produces an undeniably gorgeous contrast. A V8 engine gives Beckham’s Vantage 423 horsepower while the car’s 0-62 mph speed of 5.2 seconds remains impressive even by today’s standards.
If you thought Beckham’s Rolls Royce Phantom went for a pretty penny, wait until you hear what this Aston Martin was listed at in 2020. Beckham put this Aston Martin up for grabs if you happened to have $547,000 that you weren’t sure what to do with.
Plush deep-pile carpets and walnut accents are two interior elements that help define this car’s elegance. Classic car enthusiasts are always on the hunt for this car’s original Ronal wheels that contain rims containing exceptional quality. These rims are now out of production and valued across the world for their straightforward beauty.
Beckham deserves credit for his ability to keep this car in mint condition during his ownership period.
2.) What Model Served as the Basis for Will.I.Am’s Futuristic Coupe?
Will.I.Am takes the crown for this list’s most-modified custom car with this coupe’s cartoonish design. This model started as a 1958 Volkswagen Beetle. The Black-Eyed Peas artist wanted to create an abstract, futuristic car with a front-placed engine and wide-stretching doors. A supercharged LS3 is only the start of this vehicle’s custom additions.
This car took forever to build since Will.I.Am continued to alter his requests. One of this coupe’s more recognizable elements is its Rolls-Royce Phantom-inspired hood. Aluminum interior components keep this car away from the status quo, while bucket seats reflect a design that doesn’t overlook performance.
Will.I.Am is reported to have spent $900,000 customizing this coupe. The singer wanted to have the car on his Superbowl Halftime Show stage so bad that he offered $100,000 to speed up the vehicle’s manufacturing process. West Coast Customs eventually took over the job and completed the car’s four-year production.
While many are on the fence regarding this car’s aesthetic appeal, the coupe perfectly suits Will.I.Am’s occasionally abstract artistic expression.
1.) How Much Did Jay-Z’s Maybach Exelero Cost?
Jay-Z earns the #1 spot on our list with his Maybach Exelero that costs a cool $8 million. This Maybach features an extended front that’s reminiscent of a vintage Batmobile and an overall body design that was created to showcase a specific type of German tires.
Yes, this car is as fast as it looks. A 5.9-liter twin-turbocharged V12 engine allows this car to fly from 0-62 mph in 4.4 seconds. 5,000 rpm leads to this Maybach producing 700 horsepower, while a mere 2,500 rpm can generate 752 lb-ft of torque.
There’s only 12 total Maybach Exelero’s in the world. Custom elements include 23-inch Fulda Carat Exelero wheels, front and rear disc brakes, and red harness-style seatbelts.
Jay-Z doesn’t drive this Maybach for its fuel efficiency. The Maybach Exelero only registers 2.5 miles per gallon. It’s fair to guess that this isn’t Hova’s daily driver.
