Now, I’m not saying Kanye’s a gold digger, but he ain’t messing with no broke bimmer.
Yeezus is reportedly worth over $1.3 BILLION!!! And when one man has THAT much power, you know he’s going to spend some serious dough on his cars. Kanye’s collection is as flashy, eccentric, and insane as the man himself. From a bomb-proof SUV, to a few cars worth over $3,000,000, Kanye’s garage is smarter, better, faster, stronger. Can you guess what Yeezy’s driving?
Yeezy’s Lamborghini Urus
Now regardless of what you think of Mr. West as a fashion designer, it seems pretty clear that he should stick to designing clothes after you’ve seen what he did to his Lamborghini Urus SUV.
The base model Urus is designed to merge the performance of a supercar with the practicality of an SUV. And Lamborghini nailed it on that! It’s GORGEOUS car, that is, until Kanye got his hands on it. It looks like Ye gave his $200,000 Lambo to a high school kid with no money and let him have his way with it.
Coating it in some beige primer paint, fitting it with some wheels that look more suited for a dinner table than an exotic car, and putting in a bright blue leather interior? I guess Evel Kanyevel really wanted to touch the sky. Let’s be honest, the color combination of tan cream paint and neon blue interior is really just not a good look. You’d think as a successful fashion designer, Kanye might have a better idea of color theory. But I guess when you’re that rich, you can completely destroy a $200,000 car. And, well, nobody can’t tell him nothin’.
But now that we got all the hating out of our systems, let’s talk about one of Kanye’s cars that has undeniable swagger.
Ye’s Bugatti Veyron
The Bugatti Veyron is arguably the coolest car in Kanye’s stable, and it’s almost definitely the most expensive. When the overpowered Veyron first hit the streets, it redefined hypercars. With a top speed of 267 miles per hour and the power to crack 60 MPH in just 2.4 seconds, it’s pretty obvious when Kanye said “no one man should have all that power”, he was talking about his Veyron.
He bought this $3.5M Veyron to celebrate the birth of his first child, North. I guess he wasn’t into minivans. I mean, $3 MILLION DOLLARS??? That’s more than the $2M loan he got from the government to save his Yeezy brand! But for a price tag that hefty, Kanye got one of the coolest cars ever made, cementing himself as a rap icon. Seems like a Veyron is a must-have in the rap game, since T-Pain, Drake, Jay-Z, Soulja Boy, and Lil Wayne are all rockin’ Veyrons too. And I mean, just look at the thing. If there was ever a car meant to transport someone who thinks that he’s a god, the Veyron is it.
Kanye’s next ride wasn’t quite 3 million bucks…Unless you consider the fact that he and Kim own TWO of them. But when you’re two of the world’s most famous people, how do you protect yourself from paparazzi, haters and EXPLOSIONS? You get a Prombron Iron Diamond.
Matching Prombron Iron Diamonds
DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER! You may not be rich and famous enough to even know that this car even exists, but this is the most expensive SUV ever built. I mean, I think it’s an SUV? Or is it a tank? Most couples get his-and-hers t-shirts or bath towels. Kim and Kanye got his-and-hers high-performance armored SUVs that cost 1.25 million apiece. Must be nice to be so rich that you can afford the equivalent of a military tank draped in Rolls-Royce luxury.
The Prombron Iron Diamond is made by Latvian manufacturer Dartz Motorz, who built these for the Wests with gold plating and full bulletproof windows. These cars can even take a blast from a landmine or a grenade and come out unscathed. Maybe Kanye’s afraid that Taylor Swift will come for her revenge after his antics at the 2009 VMAs…
The Wests also had their choice of trim materials including snake, crocodile or elephant skin, and under the hood of the Iron Diamond is a stable of 1000 horses. And as if all that weren’t luxurious enough, when you buy one of these swanky tanks, you get a complimentary bottle of RussoBaltique Vodka, the most expensive vodka on the planet. Each bottle is going for around $750,000, so it’s actually kind of a deal!
When you need to hide from the press the Pombron is perfect, but when you’re living the good life and want to throw your hands in the sky… you need a drop-top Maserati!
Kim’s Maserati GranTurismo Convertible
Kim and Kanye’s Maserati GranTurismo Convertible drops its top almost as quick as Kanye dropped his 2020 presidential bid. And if Kanye’s spending on cars is any indication of how he would handle the nation’s finances, it’s probably a good thing he dropped out of the race.
The GranTurismo starts at a whopping $134,000, which compared to some of the other cars in his arsenal isn’t so much, but for any normal person probably costs more than your house. And when you consider the fact that Kanye drives this car so rarely that he’s never actually been photographed in it, it just goes to show how much money Yeezy’s got to blow on fine automotives.
The GranTurismo convertible dials up 444 horsepower with its 4.7-liter V8 and goes 0 to 60 in 4.6 seconds. For most of us, it’d be a dream to drive this car. For Kanye, it’s just something he’ll get around to one day… maybe.
But the GranTurismo isn’t Kanye’s only ride with the top chopped off, he’s also got a super rare German drop-top that he’s clearly very fond of.
Mercedes SLR McLaren + Stirling Moss
Mercedes-Benz is by far the most mentioned brand in hip-hop, and for good reason. With sophisticated speed-sleds like the SLR McLaren, Benz is a brand you want to be associated with. Kanye was first seen in his super-rare SLR McLaren back in the days when he was dating Amber Rose. But just because their relationship fizzled out, doesn’t mean he lost any love for the SLR. He’s still pictured in this vehicle all the time. And it’s easy to see why he’s so fond of this James Bond-esque German supercar. It’s becoming rarer and rarer everyday, and the price tag on these things is up around $700,000! Under the hood it’s got a 5.4-liter V8 that propels the SLR to a top speed of 209 miles per hour, and it’s capable of going 0 to 60 in just 3.4 seconds.
But the SLR-love doesn’t stop there, Kanye also owns one of the most rare Mercedes of all time: an SLR Stirling Moss, one of only 75 in existence, that cost Yeezy about a million bucks new, and is probably worth about 3 times that now. It’s pushing 650 horsepower and hits escape-from-paparazzi speeds in just 3.4 seconds. But perhaps the most unique thing about the Stirling Moss is it’s got NO WINDSHIELD!!! Can you imagine flying down the highway at over 200 MPH with nothing to protect your face from whatever flies up off the road? Doesn’t sound all that comfortable… or safe. But this ride is all about style, and in the words of Kanye West, “It’s got the swag sauce, it’s drippin Swagu!”
The SLR’s are fantastic cars to pilot yourself, but what about when Yeezy needs a break from driving? Well, for that he’s got a Rolls-Royce… or two.
Rap God’s Rolls-Royces
Rolls-Royce is a STAPLE of success, and owning one lets everyone know that you made it. The brand has become synonymous with lavish luxury, so it’s only right that Kim and Kanye should have a couple in their garage. Their Phantom actually belonged to Kim before she began her romantic endeavours with Mr. West, but by the rites of marriage, it now half-belongs to the hip-hop mogul.
This highly-coveted car starts at $450,000, and part of the reason these cars are so swanky and expensive is that ever single component is painstakingly assembled by hand. But the Phantom isn’t just about comfort, it’s got some serious chops too: a V12 engine, 563 horsepower, and 8-speed transmission. Even though this car looks classy and cool, it’s definitely got some hidden fury under the hood. And it’s not their only Rolls, the other ghoul haunting their garage is a Ghost.
The Rolls-Royce Ghost is the cheaper and more practical brother of the Phantom, but just because it’s cheaper, doesn’t mean it’s cheap. To bust this Ghost you need about $300,000. But like I said, if you’ve got a Phantom, you need a Ghost too or it’ll get lonely. Right? And on top of that $300,000, Kim threw in some signature customized touches as she likes to do with almost all of her cars. I guess since this car is considered the entry-level for extremely luxurious and expensive vehicles, Kim had to get it customized to show her solidified position in the world of the rich and famous. For me, I’d just like to be behind the wheel of a Ghost one time.
But even before this car got Kim-customized, it’s got all that class and style you’d expect from a Rolls, with that beautiful emblem above the straight-laced front grill and those simply beautiful lines running along the sides.
The next car is also a symbol of wealth and luxury, and just one look at it will have you singing, “Welcome to the good life….”
An Intact Mercedes Maybach
I don’t understand how Kanye’s still allowed to own a Maybach after what he and Jay-Z did in the music video for Otis. If you don’t remember the video, the duo basically took a set of power tools to a brand new Maybach and ripped all the doors and the roof off. I guess the fact that they auctioned the car off to support the recovery effort in East Africa makes this travesty a bit better, but watching that video definitely hurt my soul.
Anyway, Kanye’s got a new Maybach now, and this one’s fully intact. The Maybach brand was started back in 1909 by a father and son, but was later acquired by Mercedes-Benz in 1960 and propelled to the status of an ultra-luxury brand. This legacy of luxury has continued on to today, and has, of course, found its way to Kanye’s garage.
The Mercedes Maybach’s got a Cloud 9-like interior and some serious specs under the hood too, And the trim that Kim and Kanye own, which has a wider wheelbase than normal, is one of only 50 of these trims available in the USA. I guess having a normal Mercedes Maybach just wasn’t enough for these celebs. Plus, it cost them about $400,000 to be so unique.
Now, this next car is an absolute stunner, and it’s also got some pretty hilarious stories surrounding it.
Damaged Lambo Aventador
Let’s just start by acknowledging how cool this car is. It looks like it could be the little brother of the Batmobile. Kim bought a Lamborghini Aventador as a gift for Kanye for somewhere in the neighborhood of $750,000. And apparently, when this super expensive car was being delivered from the garage, the mechanics accidentally closed the power gate on it, leaving massive scratches. I can only imagine the sheer panic as they watched this ridiculously valuable vehicle get torn up.
And the calamity continued! Two years later, paparazzi caught a video of Kanye’s assistant running into a door while trying to pull the Lambo into his garage. You’d think people would be a little more careful with a supercar capable of revving up 691 horsepower that costs three-quarters of a million dollars. I know one thing, if I had that car, and I had an assistant, I’d never let my assistant drive my Aventador. Luckily, I have neither so we don’t need to worry about it.
So if you’ve ever wondered what superstars like Kanye West drive, there you have it. It’s hard to price out the whole collection, but with the cars we listed, and a ton of other rides in Kim and Kanye’s collection, we think the Wests are sitting on over $12M in cars alone!
