We've seen loads of power couples over the past several decades. We’ve had Liz Taylor and Richard Burton, Julie Andrews and Blake Edwards, Liz Taylor and Richard Burton for a second time, and who could forget Elizabeth Taylor and Larry Fortensky? OK, maybe that last one is stretching it a bit. We then went on to Tom Cruise and Mimi Rogers, Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, and then Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. These days, most of us are familiar with one of the biggest and most famous power couples to ever exist. No, we’re not talking about Kimye, although they certainly rank right up there. We’re referring to Beyonce and Jay Z, who officially formed their union on April 4th, 2008.
As you probably already know, these two were extremely successful and rich beyond their wildest dreams even before they got married. It's estimated that Jay Z is worth about $810 million, while Mrs. Carter is worth about $350 million. Add that all up, and you have a couple who's collectively worth over a billion dollars. Needless to say, The Carters can spend outrageous amounts of money on whatever they like. They've spent millions on properties, bling, fine art, and entertainment. They’ve also sunk millions into their massive collection of cars. Here are 25 pictures of Jay Z and Beyonce’s Cars. It’s OK to be a little jealous.
24 Jeep Wrangler
Of course, Jay Z and Beyonce need to have options and when they want to travel off-road or through the snow, and the Carters need a backup plan in case their Range Rover is in the shop or at the impound lot after being towed for illegal parking at the airport. That's why they were wise to invest in their Jeep Wrangler, which is a fine compact off-road vehicle made by Chrysler.
This 4x4 bush basher comes equipped with a 3.8-liter V6 engine that cranks out 202 horsepower.
These vehicles have been conquering the toughest terrain since they were first introduced during World War ll. The Carters shouldn’t be needing any tow trucks to get them out of trouble when they're cruising in their Wrangler.
23 1957 C1 Corvette
Honestly, there aren’t too many things that are more aggravating than getting stuck in traffic. At least when Jay Z and Queen Bey are stuck in a traffic jam, they don’t seem to sweat it, as they're enjoying their time in what appears to be their vintage 1957 C1 Corvette. This iconic vehicle was one of the earliest Corvettes ever made, and almost every car buff would give anything to have one. This piece of automobile history comes with a 283-ci engine, and it can boogie. It’s anyone’s guess as to how many of the 6,339 Corvettes that were made that year are still on the road, but the ones that are out there will certainly be worth more than the original asking price of $3,176.32.
22 Alfa Romeo Spider
While we’re not absolutely certain of this Alfa Romeo Spider’s details, we’re pretty sure that it's a second-generation Series 2 Alfa Romeo Spider that was produced somewhere between 1970 and 1982. One thing that's indisputable is the fact that we have Jay Z behind the wheel while his beautiful wife is riding shotgun.
This car is well-suited for navigating Italy’s winding roads, but it can also handle the twists and turns of any North American route.
It’s also nice to see that the couple is saving a few dollars and being a little kinder to the environment by driving a vehicle that isn’t such a gas guzzler. Mother nature sends her best regards.
21 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud
It’s not as if it’s just Jay Z who has the nice vehicles. Beyonce is a classy woman, and she drives classy cars, like this 1959 Roll-Royce Convertible ll, which has a 6.2-liter engine and a custom interior that's decked out in blue leather and fancy embroidery. It’s more of a luxury car than a speed machine, as its top speed is just 114 MPH. It takes 10.3 seconds to reach 60 MPH, so she’s not likely to be driving this if she ever needs to make a quick escape after robbing a bank. This sexy automobile was Jay Z’s $1-million gift to Beyonce on her 25th birthday.
20 Cadillac Escalade
You may have noticed that Jay Z and Beyonce own quite a few foreign cars, but they also have a few North American vehicles in their stable. When Beyonce gets the urge to drive around like a regular low-level millionaire, she gets behind the wheel of her Cadillac Escalade. This behemoth comes with a 6.2-liter V8 engine and features such convenient options as heated seats and a heated steering wheel while also offering built-in Wi-Fi, a state of the art sound system, and power everything. Another bonus is that buying one of these luxury SUVs for under $100,000 won’t wipe out the ol’ bank account. Well, at least it won’t break Beyonce’s bank account.
19 Pagani Zonda F
If Jay Z ever finds himself needing to take on a part-time job in order to maintain his hot wife and extravagant lifestyle, he could always get a job as a pizza-delivery driver. He'd definitely be doing his new job in style in this Italian-built machine.
This car has a 7.3-liter V-12 under the hood and goes from 0-60 in an astonishing 3.6 seconds.
With a price tag of $670,000, this Pagani Zonda F is a fine combination of sportiness and luxury that's sure to have heads turning. With the Zonda F’s top speed of 214 MPH, Jay Z will be able to get those pizzas to the door while they're still piping hot.
18 Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport
Buying a birthday gift for one of the richest people in the world must be a daunting task. Beyonce was faced with this dilemma as Jay Z approached his 41st birthday, but she managed to meet the challenge by getting her hubby a new car. We’re not talking about some used 1974 Ford Maverick with balding tires either.
Beyonce shelled out about $2 million for this Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport, which comes with a turbo quad W16 engine, which propels this luxury Sportster to speeds of up to 255 MPH.
Its 1,190 BPH allows the Bugatti to go from 0-60 in a whopping 2.6 seconds.
17 Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR
It took a joint effort from the people at Mercedes-Benz and McLaren to come up with the impressive Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR. There were only 3,500 of these cars ever produced, and you'll find one of them in Jay Z and Beyonce’s driveway.
With a lightweight 5.4-liter V-8 engine and 5-speed transmission, the Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR can reach the 60 MPH plateau in just 3.4 seconds, and it has a top speed of 200 MPH.
While its $455,500 price tag is far beyond the reach of most of us regular folks, it's in bargain basement territory for the Carters. How nice it must be for Jay Z and B!
16 Maybach Exelero
How much is too much when it comes to buying a car? The majority of us would likely never consider spending north of $100,000 on a car. In fact, we average Larry Lunchbuckets probably spend a mere fraction of that price on our cars. If you're envious of Jay Z and Queen Bey’s million-dollar whips, then you'll need to sit down when you hear what Mr. Carter paid for his MaybackExelero. His 2-seater coupe is the finest of fine and can get him to the recording studio at a speed of 200 MPH, so you know it’s going to be pricey. $1 million? $2 million? Not even close. This luxury machine cost the tycoon a staggering $8 million.
15 The Family Van
A small, fast, and outrageously expensive sports car isn’t all that practical when it comes to taking the kids to soccer practice. With their family quickly growing, Jay Z and Beyonce needed to think about alternative forms of transportation, and they decided that buying a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Limousine was the solution. This isn’t your regular Ford Econoline either. Not only is this luxury van equipped with such comforts as a bathroom, a shower, Direct TV, and a $150,000 sound system, but it also has the capacity to take the whole family as well as a few special guests almost anywhere in style. After all, it’s all about style when you're as well-heeled as Jay Z and Beyonce.
14 Chrysler Pacifica
There are times when even Beyonce doesn’t want to turn heads. Sometimes, she just wants to blend in with the rest of us and maintain a low profile for a while. Maybe she’s taking the kids to Walmart to take advantage of those great back-to-school savings, or perhaps, the family just wants to inconspicuously hit the drive-thru at Burger King and use those 2-for-1 Whopper coupons that are about to expire. Whatever the case, the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is the perfect family wagon to accomplish this in. When the Carters pile into this limited-edition model, they can blend in with the masses and go about their business without being needlessly disturbed.
13 Mercedes-Benz S-Class
Who really knows what would possess a person to own so many cars? Ego? Boredom? A short attention span? Perhaps it’s a serious addiction to that aromatic new-car smell? Whatever the reason, Jay Z and Beyonce seem to always be expanding their fleet of vehicles, and they appear to really have a thing for Mercedes-Benz models.
This Mercedes-Benz S-Class packs 463 horsepower into a 9-speed 4.0-liter V8 bi-turbo engine that reaches 60 MPH in a modest 4.6 seconds.
It comes with a price tag of about $100,000, but knowing the Carters, they probably added at least that much in extras. The sound system alone is likely worth more than the average car.
12 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet
When it comes to combining luxury, sportiness, and the ability to reach terrifyingly high speeds, there aren’t many carmakers that can do it quite like Porsche. Another high-priced ride that you'll see parked on the Carter estate is this zippy 7-speed rear-wheel drive Porsche 911 Carrera. Jay Z need not worry if he’s running a few minutes late for an important meeting, as this speed machine can hit 60 MPH in 4.1 seconds while reaching a top speed of 190 MPH. It can actually accelerate to 100 MPH in just over 9 seconds, which would be enough to have the contents of your stomach hovering high in your throat.
11 Rolls-Royce Phantom
Well, Jay Z might've bought Beyonce a beautiful and expensive Rolls-Royce for her 25th birthday, but he’s not going to let her be the only one in the household to drive in such opulence. Mr. Carter has a Rolls-Royce of his own, too.
His Rolls-Royce Phantom is powered by a 6.75 V12 engine that packs 453 horsepower.
Not only does it come with an ashtray for the ashes from Jay Z’s big fat stogies, but it also comes with a few televisions, luxurious leather, and power everything. It might not be the speediest car in his vast collection, but it's certainly one of the most luxurious.
10 Ferrari F430 Spider
We don’t mean to make the other cars in Jay Z’s collection jealous, but this Ferrari F430 Spider is one of the music mogul’s favorites. It’s pretty easy to see why, too. With a 32-valve V8 engine that propels this sporty unit from 0-60 in just 3.9 seconds to a top speed of just under 200 MPH, Jay Z can attract all kinds of attention from envious onlookers. He can enjoy a quieter and slightly faster ride if he affixes the hard top, and with those darkly tinted windows, he can keep people guessing as to who's behind the wheel of this awesome sports car. He didn’t have any trouble forking over $220,000 to hop into the driver’s seat.
9 Range Rover
You never know when your travels might take you over bumpy trails, through muddy puddles, or through other elements like snow and heavy rain. These conditions are less than ideal when you're driving in a Bugatti, Ferrari, or a vintage Alfa Romeo. That's why it’s such a good idea to have a backup vehicle like Jay Z and Beyonce’s Range Rover. These vehicles are a heck of a lot more than your everyday 4x4. They've been refined over several generations dating back to the 1970s, and they're quite generous when it comes to the luxury aspect. They're also spacious enough to accommodate the entire Carter clan.
8 Maybach 57S
This entry takes a slight detour from the theme, but it still must be placed on this list because of the insane backstory. This 2004 Maybach 57S was jointly purchased by Jay Z and Kanye West to be used in their “Otis” music video. The two agreed to auction off the $350,000 car after making the video, and they donated the proceeds to East African drought relief... but not before taking a blowtorch to it and pretty much dismantling it. They tore the top off, switched front grilles, and added flame-throwing tailpipes, as well as a bevy of hot babes for the video shoot. Another crazy part of this story is that they were able to use the car as a tax write-off.
7 Bentley Continental GT
Bentley has been making cars for the ultra-affluent for decades, and they just seem to be getting more luxurious and powerful every year. After Maybach stopped production in 2012, the brain-trust at Bentley took full advantage by soliciting their former customers, such as actor Samuel L. Jackson, King Juan Carlos, and, of course, Jay Z. This approach resulted in a fair amount of success. It seems that Jay Z used some of his extra paper-route money to add one of these luxury vehicles to his fleet. Despite the Continental GT’s size, its state of the art V8 can get this beast from 0-60 in 4.6 seconds, and it has a top speed of around 190 MPH.
6 Maybach 62S
Jay Z enjoys a lot of the finer things in life—fine wines, fine cigars, a super fine wine, and Maybachs. Not to be confused with other Maybachs that are listed here, Jay Z also owns a Maybach 62S. These 4-door sedans were produced between 2002 and 2012, and they were favorites among the rich and famous.
Decked out with a 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged V12 engine, which pumps out 612 horsepower, the 62S can reach 60 MPH in 4.5 seconds despite weighing over 6,000 pounds.
While the 62S wasn’t the most expensive Maybach model, it still came with a price tag of close to $500,000. Oh, yeah... that’s without all of the options.
5 Tesla Model S
OK, the thought of the Carters cruising around in a Prius might be a little far-fetched, but Jay Z took a step in that direction in 2014 when he purchased himself a “murdered out” Tesla Model S. Murdered out? Yes. That's to say that this Tesla Model S is painted black and comes with black aftermarket wheels, darkly tinted windows, and all sorts of other aftermarket accessories, including black taillight covers and anything else to blacken the electric car’s appearance. His new toy allowed him to join the ranks of other environmentally conscious stars like Ed Begley Jr. and Leonardo DiCaprio, who also try to have people believe that they’re saving the world.
4 What? Another Mercedes-Benz S-Class
If it’s good enough for Jay Z, then it must be good enough for Queen Bey. Or is it the other way around? Either way, Mr. Carter isn’t the only one cruising around in a luxurious Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Mrs. Carter has one of her own sitting in the garage, and she looks fantastic when she gets behind the wheel.
Just like her hubby’s whip, Beyonce’s Mercedes-Benz S-Class produces 463 horsepower from a 9-speed 4.0-liter V8 bi-turbo engine.
She can also reach 60 MPH in 4.6 seconds while she cranks out her latest single at full blast. Is it possible that they got some kind of 2-for-1 deal on their identical purchases?
3 GMC Yukon SLT
This might not be the fastest or the most luxurious vehicle in the Carters' collection, but they have to consider other things these days, such as the safety of their children. This picture marks the first time that the entire family, including their newest members, were seen in public. It wasn’t so much the fact that they were emerging from their GMC Yukon SLT that got notice, as much as the Nuna PIPA car seat that Jay Z was packing. Who cares about the SUV? The seat is more interesting with its 5-point harness, removable canopy, and load leg design that adds an extra layer of safety. With a price tag of about $300, it’s also much cheaper than the Yukon.
2 Mercedes Benz 190E
It's not as if Jay Z acquired a taste for the finer things, such as classy foreign cars, in recent years, and this picture is a testament to that. You may not know this, but Jay Z lived in England for a while back in the late 1980s. He was just 19 years old, and he was treated like a king. He also drove around like a king in his new Mercedes-Benz 190E. This particular car might not have come with the same prestige as some of his more recent acquisitions, but it was certainly a luxury to be savored. It also shows that he's had a long-running love affair with the Mercedes-Benz brand.
1 Lexus GS
The world wasn’t very familiar with Jay Z back in the summer of 1995. In fact, that summer marked the future music mogul and businessman’s first ever press shoot. Maybachs and Ferraris were probably a little out of his budget range at the time, but there was nothing wrong with being photographed with a Lexus GS. This photo, which was taken in Battery Park, does a good job of misleading us. An example of this is the funky-looking personalized license plate. It’s actually a piece of cardboard that Jay Z artfully applied his name to. He simply covered up the actual license plate. Who really cares? We all know how it all turned out for him.
