Jay-Z and Beyonce are two of the biggest musicians of all time and the pair has been married since 2008. Jay-Z and Beyonce have a combined net worth of $1.25 billion. With that kind of dough, the two have one of the greatest car collections in the US. Of course, Jay-Z purchased the majority of cars. However, Beyonce added her own vehicles to the collection—mostly family-friendly cars.
Jay-Z shows his great taste in cars by purchasing some of the rarest and most respected vehicles of all time. Though he has such a high net worth, he still shows respect to car legends by purchasing cars like the much-loved Jeep Wrangler or the Alfa Romeo Spyder. Jay-Z may be rich but he is also very knowledgable about cars. His purchase of supercars and ultra-luxury vehicles makes his collection one of the best in the world.
Beyonce added her own touch to the collection by purchasing mainly family-friendly cars. Beyonce’s selection of cars is in tune with her being a mother and running a family. With minivans, SUVs, and vans, Beyonce’s selection is to cater to her family. However, Beyonce does show her taste in supercars, as she also has a Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR. She has a right to splurge after purchasing so many family-friendly cars, and the McLaren SLR is the perfect way to treat herself.
In the end, this is one of the most famous couples in the world. Here are 15 cars in Jay-Z’s garage and 5 Beyonce put there.
Jay-Z owns a blacked-out Tesla Model S. The term eans, of course, that the car is all black with black rims. Though the Tesla Model S has a starting cost of $78,000, the car is ahead of its time as far as technology goes. There may be a good reason why Jay-Z chose this car: the gas mileage. Jay’s garage consists mostly of gas-guzzling supercars. While making the jump into the future, Jay-Z can save when gas prices go up with the 240-mile capability (on one battery charge) of the Model S. It’s fast, too, as it completes the 0-60 in 2.5 seconds, according to Tesla.
Jay-Z must love his SUVs because this Yukon SLT is a concept car that he designed in a partnership with GM. The car is the perfect match for Jay-Z, as the color is his signature color, Jay-Z blue. The GMC Yukon SLT is an excellent SUV used for hauling cargo. The 6.2-liter V8 engine can push up to 400 horsepower and doesn’t disappoint on gas, either, as it gets up to 22 miles per gallon on the highway. According to Barret Jackson, Jay-Z used some of the most expensive and high-quality paint to shed color on his custom Yukon SLT.
Midway through 2016, stories and photos flooded the internet showing Jay-Z and Beyonce cruising around in Italy an Alfa Romeo Spider. What better car for the world’s biggest couple in one of the most romantic countries in the world? The convertible legend was built in 1966 and released at the 36th Geneva Motor Show. The 1.5-liter engine may not be impressive but this old-school car can cost up to $115,000 today, according to Nada Guides. That is, of course, if it's in great condition. We’re going to take a guess and say that Jay-Z bought it in great condition, considering he has $900 million in the bank.
After being seen heading to lunch in New York in a Jeep Wrangler, we wonder why Jay-Z made this purchase. The answer is simple: the Jeep Wrangler has sentimental value. As children, we loved seeing the Wrangler with its doors off, driving into the sunset. The Jeep Wrangler was built after a war era vehicle, though the creators have never directly claimed it to be so. The Wrangler is the center of Jeep's successes, as the loved SUV continues to be one of the best selling SUVs today, according to Fool. With the addition of a Wrangler to his garage, Jay-Z can get a taste of regular life.
Beyonce loves Mercedes-Benz and she owns three of their cars. The super-famous couple was seen in Paris cruising around in this S Class Benz. The S Class is a great car for basic travel and family needs. It provides incredible luxury features and it maintains the best technology. According to Car and Driver, the S Class has an unlikely nine-speed automatic transmission and an engine that puts out 362 horsepower from a V8. The S Class Benz has been a popular selection for many wealthy drivers, especially among celebrities. The car is built with impeccable engineering and combined with its ability to handle, is one of the very best Benz has to offer.
Beyonce purchased this Mercedes Sprinter van because of her new baby. This is, however, beyond a van. The inside is totally fixed up, as it has its own bathroom. Full creamed-out leather completes the inside, with four seats and a TV. The Benz Sprinter Limousine is a large van that costs $125,000. However, the additions that Beyonce added, including leather seats, may have upped the price a bit. The Sprinter Limousine does come with every single feature possible including seats for up to 10 passengers, according to Golden Limo. This is a great car for Beyonce to travel with her family.
With another family car, Beyonce solidifies this list with a Cadillac Escalade. This popular SUV copped by the Queen of R&B is one of the best large-sized SUVs in the world. This car is said to be one of Beyonce’s favorites, as she has been spotted in it several times. The car is very family-friendly, as it is equipped with automatic parking assistance and surround vision. Not many upgrades need to be made to the Escalade, as it comes equipped with 20-inch rims and 420 horsepower, according to Cadillac. With three rows of seating, this car is perfect for Beyonce’s packed trips.
Jay-Z may have a lot of money but he also knows a bit about cars. This rare car brand has produced nothing but supercars for their whole tenure. The 650 horsepower Pagani Zonda F has an impeccable resume: a 0-60 time of 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 214 MPH, according to Top Speed. With so much power and a carbon fiber body, the Zonda F is able to compete against some of the fastest cars in the world. Jay-Z knows his cars because only 40 Zonda Fs have been produced. It is a rare vehicle and Jay-Z has one of them.
What better birthday present could there be than a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport? Beyonce gave Jay-Z this $2 million whip for his 41st birthday. Jay-Z was thrilled with the present and why wouldn’t he be? This 1,000 horsepower Bugatti is one of the fastest cars in the world, as it has a 254 MPH top speed, according to Evo. It is the ultimate car, perhaps one of the best ever made. The car is rare. In fact, in order to make it time for Jay-Z's birthday, Beyonce had to order the car one year ahead of time.
Jay-Z and Beyonce were seen cruising in California in this 1957 Corvette. It is an important addition to one of the biggest car collections in the US, as the legendary Corvette was a revolutionary car. The 1957 Corvette was the first car in US history to record one horsepower for every cubic inch, according to Corvette Museum. It pumped out 283 horsepower, which was an incredible feat in 1957. Additionally, Corvette engineers made great strides during the production of the 1957 Corvette. Jay-Z’s decision to buy this displays respect for classic cars, as the 1957 Corvette was one of the early successes in Detroit's history.
The Rolls-Royce Phantom is one of the most coveted cars by celebrities, and so, of course, Jay-Z has one. As probably the most successful rapper of all time, the $400,000 price tag was nothing in comparisons to Jay-Z’s net worth of nearly a billion—he's clocking in at $900 million, according to Capital Xtra. The Phantom is one of the greatest cars in the world, as it provides both tremendous power and unmatchable luxury. With a 6.7-liter, turbocharged, V12 engine pushing out 563 horsepower, this Rolls bends the rules for ultra-luxurious cars. The technology of this car is ahead of its time—much like its owner.
Technically, this is Beyonce’s car, but Jay-Z is the one who put this in their garage. The Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud was a gift from Jay-Z to his wife on her birthday. The $1 million classic car was in production from 1955 to 1966 and there are only 2,716 of them in the world according to Hagerty, thus making this a sentimental purchase. What better gift is there for a significant other? The Silver Cloud engine was ahead of its time as it was planned since 1947 and it was put on display at car shows next to other vehicles.
Jay-Z is the richest rapper of all time and the Maybach Exelero is one of the most expensive cars of all time, with a price tag of $8 million. There’s no doubt that Jay-Z shows this thing off, as he flashed it in his “Lost One” music video. The Exelero pumps out 690 horsepower while flaunting one of the greatest interiors in the world. According to Top Speed, this beyond-supercar has a 218 MPH top speed which makes it the ultimate package. The car is perfect for the owner, with Jay-Z and the Exelero both being the top boss in their field.
A perfect car collection like Jay-Z’s wouldn’t be complete without a Ferrari. The Ferrari F430 Spider is one of the nicest Ferraris that the brand has ever built. Multiple sources state that this car is one of Jay-Z’s favorites. Top Speed reports that the F430 Spider has a weight of 3,000 pounds and puts out 490 horsepower with a V8 engine. With the combination of a lightweight frame and 343 pounds-feet of torque pouring out of the specially built 4.3-liter engine, this car produces quick bursts of speed by completing the 0-60 in 3.6 seconds. This Ferrari solidifies Jay-Z’s legendary collection.
Jay-Z and Beyonce have been seen cruising in a 911 Carrera Cabriolet and Jay-Z liked it so much that he bought one for Rihanna. The 911 Carrera Cabriolet spurned a breakthrough of technology for the Porsche crew during its production. According to Car and Driver, the specialty Carrera zooms from 0-60 in 3.5 seconds. Being faster than the legendary 1987 Porsche 959, it is a unique Porsche fitting perfectly into Jay-Z’s impeccable car collection. Though it's expensive—even for a Porsche—with a price tag of $116,000, money is nothing for the biggest rap mogul of all time.
A Bentley is the staple of a rapper's success and Jay-Z’s car collection wouldn’t be complete without one. Bentley apparently likes Jay-Z, too, as the motor company often courts the rap superstar about their new products. The Bentley Continental GT is one of the most luxurious cars in the world and it’s pretty fast, too. According to Top Speed, this Bentley cruises in intense luxury with a 207 MPH top speed and a 0-60 time of 3.4 seconds. A combination of state-of-the-art luxury and a 6.0-liter V12 engine make this one of the best cars in the world.
Jay-Z’s second Maybach is the 62S. When Jay gets tired of the usual Mercedes, he can turn to this evolved Benz-on-steroids. The Maybach is a product of Mercedes but the outcome of this car is a whole new ballpark. The 62S has top-of-the-line luxury qualities and qualifies as one of the world’s most revered luxury cars. It looks like a Mercedes but it has so much more to offer. Hot 963 reports that 62S owners don’t usually sit in their driver's seat because they have drivers for hire. For that, the backseat has all of the amenities, including reclining seat.
Though we can’t confirm if he bought it, Jay-Z was interested in buying an armored Dartz Prombron and the fans went swarming. Fans were thrilled that Jay-Z wanted to buy an armored car that resembled the Hummer H1. The Dartz Prombron is an armored car made by Latvia. The car is beyond insane, as it is a military vehicle with two gas tanks. It’s not slow, either, as it finishes the 0-60 in 4.9 seconds thanks to a 552 horsepower engine, according to Dartz. A good reason to purchase this car would be for Jay-Z to protect his family and new-born child from paparazzi or other dangers.
Beyonce’s best car, a Mercedes-Benz SLR Mclaren, and is a symbol of her talent and success in the music industry. She courted the car, too, as she appeared in the debut of the Benz SLR Mclaren. This supercar is built in collaboration with Mercedes and one of the greatest supercar brands in the world, McLaren. The SLR Mclaren does 0-60 in 3.6 seconds with a 617 horsepower V8 engine, according to Auto-Data. As one of the fastest cars ever made by Mercedes, the SLR Mclaren takes luxury to a whole new level—or speed. This is a must-have for Beyonce’s collection, which consists mostly of family vehicles.
Beyonce tops off her collection of family-friendly cars with a Chrysler Pacifica. Beyonce got this car to assist her in her motherly duties. The Chrysler Pacifica is an exceptional minivan. The $26,000 GM product is not exactly what one would find in the garage of a millionaire. However, with perks like 19 miles per gallon and three rows of seating, Beyonce would have no trouble transporting her little ones in the well-built minivan. In addition, the Pacifica comes with the UConnect theater, which is a family entertainment system, according to Chrysler. In other words, the Pacifica is fully loaded with televisions, DVD players, and a sound system.
