When you have more money in your bank account than you know what to do with, why not take up the hobby of purchasing and collecting luxurious exotic cars? For many normal folks out there, it's considered a huge accomplishment to be able to afford just one considerably high-priced vehicle, but for these celebrities, it seems that there can never be enough. Owning one car is simply not an option for these high-rolling musicians, actors, and athletes. Most of these celebrities' car collections are worth millions and millions of dollars.
Musicians love to flaunt their assets in their music videos and to be spotted by the paparazzi in their showy sports cars, but you probably would have never guessed that some of these celebrities - for example, Rowan Atkinson, Nicholas Cage, or Tim Allen - would have such exquisite collections. Athletes like David Beckham, Manny Pacquiao, and John Cena also enjoy skirting around in their expensive rides and collecting valuable vehicles in their garages.
Some of these celebrities own dozens and dozens of vehicles from all different decades and from a variety of manufacturers, while others own a smaller number of extremely unique and high-priced cars. For instance, the comedian Jerry Seinfeld loves Porsches and owned as many as 45 at one time! He still probably owns more than anyone else to this day. Of course, Jay Leno probably beats all of these celebrities out with his collection of well over 100 vehicles and 100 motorcycles.
Here are 20 Celebrities With The Most Expensive Taste In Cars.
20 Rick Ross
Rick Ross is a successful rapper, producer, and CEO of Maybach Music Group with a net worth of over $35 million. The “Purple Lamborghini” musician owns one of the fastest luxury cars on the market, the Maybach 57s. The car costs almost a half a million dollars to own, with Ross’s vehicle valued at around $430,000.
Rick Ross also has a number of other cars in his impressive collection, including a Ferrari 458 Italia, a Fisker Karma, a Bentley Continental GT Supersports, a Lamborghini Murcielago, a Hummer H2, a Rolls-Royce Wraith, a Rolls-Royce Phantom, a BMW 760Li, and another Maybach Coupe. Needless to say, the rapper likes his cars expensive and fast. His collection of luxury vehicles is estimated to be worth upwards of $25 million.
19 Floyd Mayweather
Floyd Mayweather was one of the best boxers in the world. The former competitive boxing champion surely took his fair share of punches in the ring, but he also earned a massive fortune. In fact, his highly anticipated fight with Manny Pacquiao in 2015 made him $250 million richer. Mayweather’s net worth is around $700 million. He took some of those winnings and invested them in some very expensive cars.
The athlete’s car collection is valued at over $6 million, with ten vehicles, including a Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet, a 599 GTB Fiorano, two Ferrari Spiders, a Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4, two Rolls-Royce Phantoms, a Maybach 62, and multiple Bugattis. He actually has two Rolls-Royce Phantoms because one was a gift from the rapper, 50 Cent.
18 Jay Z
Jay Z is a rapper and businessman who happens to be married to one of the most popular superstars in the world, Beyonce. Together, their net worth is more than a billion dollars, but in 2017, he was estimated to be worth about $810 million, so clearly, he can afford to buy a few nice cars. One of his most impressive vehicles is the Maybach Exelero, which Jay bought for a whopping $8 million.
The Exelero has one of the most powerful V12 engines that have ever been made, making it one of the fastest commercial luxury sedans you can own. He also owns a number of other impressively fast cars including a black Zonda F with a red leather interior that cost upwards of $670,000, as well as a pearl white Bugatti he received from Beyonce as a 41st birthday gift that cost around $2 million.
17 Nicholas Cage
Nicholas Cage is a well-known movie star, but he also has a large collection of luxury cars. With a net worth of around $25 million, the actor can afford to have such an obsession with expensive vehicles. At one point, Cage purchased over 24 cars within just a year's time span. He's admitted to regularly checking up on all of the Ferraris, Aston Martins, Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Jaguars for sale online.
The "National Treasure" star owns a Ferrari California 250 Spyder, a Jaguar D-Type, a Ferrari Enzo, and a Lamborghini Miura that was previously owned by Iran's Shah. The Enzo is probably the most pricey of them all, valued at over $670,000. Nick's love for luxury travel doesn't just include cars; he also owns a variety of yachts and private jets.
16 Tim Allen
Tim Allen is mostly recognized from his television series "Home Improvement," but he's also pretty well known in the car industry for his exquisite collection of vintage cars. Tim has a net worth of over $80 million and has had a successful career in both the TV and film industries. He's absolutely allowed himself to indulge in the finer things in life, specifically, the cars he drives.
During his time on the television sitcom scene in the nineties, Allen built a few hot rods, which he still owns to this day, including a 1933 Ford Roadster with a Chevy 350 engine, a 1956 Ford F150 pickup with a 426 supercharged engine, a 1996 Chevy Impala SS with a Corvette ZR1 engine, and a few others. He also owns other impressive vehicles like a 150 Cadillac, a Shelby Cobra 289, and a Ford RS200.
15 Missy Elliot
Missy Elliot is a best-selling hip-hop artist, and the only female to have landed a spot on this list. The musician has a big obsession with expensive cars and loves to spend her money on shiny new rides. In fact, she's admitted that her own mother has tried to stop her from buying any more cars, but with a net worth of over $50 million, she doesn't need to worry about spending too much.
The rapper's favorite car is her Lamborghini Diablo, which is a pretentious electric purple color that surely stands out on the road like a sore thumb. She also owns some other ostentatious vehicles like a 2004 Aston Martin V12 Vanquish, a 2004 Lamborghini Gallardo, and a 2004 Rolls-Royce Phantom. 2004 must've been one heck of a year for Missy Elliot.
14 Jerry Seinfeld
Jerry Seinfeld is, of course, known for his comedy and his hit television sitcom Seinfeld, but he's also known for his love of vintage cars. He even has his own show, which is currently running on Netflix, called Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee. Jerry has had an extremely successful career over the years, amassing a net worth of over $900 million. His car collection has grown immensely over the years and is worth millions of dollars.
The comedian is particularly fond of Porsches and, at one time, owned as many as 46 of them, but overall, he owns a wide variety of cars from many different decades. He has a secret garage in Manhattan to store some of his collection, which includes a 1955 Porsche 550 RS, a 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS, a 1949 Porsche 356/2, a 1986 Porsche 959, and a 1953 Porsche 550-03.
13 Ralph Lauren
It's quality over quantity when it comes to fashion designer Ralph Lauren's impeccable car collection. The unique vehicles that he's chosen are so exquisite that a museum called the "Musée des Arts Décoratifs" in Paris even featured his collection as an exhibit back in 2011.
With a net worth of over six billion dollars, Lauren can definitely afford to be more than a little picky when it comes to the cars he buys. Some of his most expensive vehicles include a 1938 Bugatti Type 57SC, a 1937 Mercedes Benz Count Trossi SSK, a 1958 Ferrari Testarossa, a 1938 Alfa Romeo 8C 2900MM, and a Bugatti Veyron. All of the older cars are all historically significant and have been fully restored to magnificent conditions.

Jay Leno has what is likely the most well-known celebrity car collection. He even had a television show based on his obsession with any and all vehicles. In fact, he had to hire four people to work in his workshop/garage and care for the 169 cars and 117 motorcycles full-time! The late-night talk show host's favorite car out of his entire collection is his 1995 McLaren F1. The legendary supercar can reach a top speed of 240 miles per hour.
Leno's collection includes a variety of vehicles including some vintage ones like a 1901 Baker Electric, a 1955 Buick Roadmaster, and a pre-war Bugatti. He also has some cool sports cars like the racecar-like LCC Rocket, which was created by the famous Formula One and Mclaren F1 designer Gordon Murray.
11 Kanye West
Kanye West and his wife Kim Kardashian surely love their luxury cars and run through them like nobody's business. With a net worth of over $145 million and his spouse's at over $175 million, Kanye - or even Kim, for that matter - is unlikely to be concerned with the amount of money he spends on his vehicles. The rapper's most lavish vehicle has got to be his Lamborghini Aventador, which is decked out with custom wheels and a black matte exterior. The car is worth a whopping $750,000.
The father of two (soon to be three) is seen riding around the Los Angeles area in the showy sportscar frequently. The couple also owns some other impressively expensive vehicles like an Aston Martin DB9, a Lamborghini Gallardo, a Mercedes SLR, a Rolls-Royce Phantom, a Mercedes G Wagon, a Mercedes S Class, and a Mercedes Maybach.
10 P. Diddy
P. Diddy was named one of Forbes's Five "Richest In Hip-Hop of 2017" and has a net worth of over $820 million. Rappers are known for flaunting their expensive cars and cheap women, and P. Diddy is no different. The "Bad Boy For Life" musician actually owns a private jet and a yacht, too, which he also likes to be seen in and around.
His impressive collection of high-priced vehicles includes a $330,000 Mercedes Maybach, a $533,000 Rolls-Royce Drophead Coupe, and a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder. The Drophead Coupe is the most expensive Rolls-Royce that you can actually own. The music mogul clearly has no spending limits when it comes to fast and shiny cars. In fact, he even gave his 16-year-old son a $360,000 Maybach 57 for his birthday... must be nice.

He also owns some more modern-looking sports cars like a 2007 Ford Mustang Saleen Parnelli Jones Limited Edition and a 2006 Dodge Viper. The wrestling champion's most beloved vehicle is apparently his 1971 AMC Hornet SC 360, which he uses as his regular car to get him from point A to point B.
8 Manny Pacquiao
When you think of Manny Pacquiao, you likely think of the professional boxer turned politician, but the 39-year-old actually has had a pretty successful career as an actor, singer, and professional basketball player in the Philippines, which have all contributed to his overall net worth of $190 million.
Pacquiao began his career as a fighter at the age of 17, working for $2 a fight. During the height of his career, he averaged around $20 to $30 million per fight... talk about a come up!
