For many people around the world, the idea of a calm, quiet life is one that's heavily sought after. Some, however, break the mold due to their skills, talents, or just pure luck. Regardless of how it happens, a few individuals become rich and famous beyond their wildest dreams.
With this vast wealth comes several benefits. You can do virtually anything you want, including pursuing any extra hobbies. For some of these rare people, their actual joy comes from cars. And not just any car either, but the "best of the best." To illustrate this, here are ten of the most unique vehicles owned by famous people.
10 Kylie Jenner's Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster
Of all the people involved in reality television, the Kardashians and Jenners are probably the most popular nowadays. They've done just about everything too, ranging from acting, entrepreneurship, and collecting cars on the side.
One of Kylie Jenner's freshest additions to their vast collection is one of Lamborghini's fastest V12's: The Aventador SV Roadster. This one cost a pretty penny for sure (3/4 of a million dollars at least) and is very rare. Unlike the standard Aventador, the "SV" is a limited series with even fewer Roadster variants.
9 Kevin Hart's Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series
In recent years, comedian Kevin Hart has soared in popularity. First by making smaller appearances in films, before eventually getting several Netflix deals and performing countless sold-out shows. Obviously, Mr. Hart likes to spend his money on cars, as evidenced by his Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series.
You may have seen a Mercedes SLS AMG on the road before. After all, they aren't the most exclusive luxury sports cars in existence. However, what separates the Black Series from the normal SLS is its extra power, redefined exterior, limited edition status, and significantly larger price tag.
8 Arnold Schwarzenegger's Eagle Speedster
Arnold Schwarzenegger is a man who seems to be able to do everything. He's served as Governor to California, is still a popular movie star, and one of the most sculpted men on the planet. What's all these accomplishments, though, without a beautiful car to enjoy them in?
Thankfully, Mr. Schwarzenegger seems to agree with that sentiment, since he owns several outstanding cars. One of which is the redesigned Jaguar E-Type by the tuning company Eagle. This special Jaguar is much different than the regular E-Type due to its complete overhaul. At the end of the day, a custom Eagle E-Type, called the Eagle Speedster, set Arnold back about a million bucks.
7 Jerry Seinfeld's Porsche 959
Throughout Jerry Seinfeld's extensive career, he's been known for his stand-up comedy routines, his own television show, and even his love for automobiles. In fact, he even has a Netflix show called Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.
Although his love for cars may be well-known, what isn't is his deep loyalty to Porsche. If you can think of a Porsche model, odds are Jerry Seinfeld owns/owned it. Even the famous 959, a direct competitor to the formidable Ferrari F40.
6 Cristiano Ronaldo's Bugatti Chiron
For some Americans, the name Cristiano Ronaldo may seem unimportant. Nonetheless, the rest of the world knows this name well, as he is one of the best soccer players of all time.
Obviously, if you're the one of the best in nearly any category (especially sports), you're going to make a ton of money. Needless to say, Ronaldo is on of the highest paid athletes in the world with a yearly salary of $64 million. With this in mind, it's no wonder he decided to invest in one of the fastest, most luxurious, and most expensive cars in the world: The Bugatti Chiron.
5 Nicolas Cage's Ferrari Enzo
Of all the actors in Hollywood, Nicolas Cage has a reputation for being a little eccentric. This has worked for him throughout his career, helping him to earn a large sum as a result.
Nicolas Cage has the need for speed. He also seems to have expensive taste too, since he owns a large number of rare classics and new sports cars. One of which is the early 2000's Ferrari Enzo, named after the company's founder.
4 Rowan Atkinson's McLaren F1
It can be difficult to let something go, especially if that thing happens to be a multi-million dollar McLaren F1. This was the exact situation actor Rowan Atkinson faced when his beautiful, purple McLaren F1 was totaled a few years back.
Even though the McLaren was classified as "totaled," Atkinson didn't give up hope. Instead, he rebuilt the British supercar to its former glory. As a matter of fact, the same F1 still exists and thrives. Why not fix it when you have the money, after all?
3 Jay Leno's Bugatti Type 37A
After retiring from his popular late-night television program, some thought that Jay Leno would have a quiet retirement away from the spotlight. However, they would be proven very wrong, as Leno used his vast knowledge and huge collection of automobiles to make another show: Jay Leno's Garage.
For those who watch his show, you already know how many beautiful cars he owns. One of his most valuable and sought after is a classic Bugatti Type 37A. The once-raced Bugatti is a historical relic that many say is "priceless."
2 Bruce Meyer's Ferrari 625/250 Testa Rossa
Nothing is impossible. If you have dreams, go out and pursue them; you might just end up like Bruce Meyer. He prospered through real estate investments and even went as far as to open an automotive museum. In this museum, the Petersen Automotive Museum, he stores some of his nicest vehicles. The most of which being a pristine Ferrari 625/250 Testa Rossa.
Like almost every other classic Ferrari Testa Rossa, this one saw its fair share of races and victories. Nowadays, the Testa Rossa is one of the most expensive and desired cars in history. Many go for as much as $30+ million, not to mention one-off versions like the Meyer's 625.
1 Paul Pappalardo's Ferrari 250 GTO
Paul Pappalardo is a perfect example of the classic saying, "You can make a lot of money doing just about anything." Pappalardo is a patent lawyer with a history of successful cases under his belt. What most in the car community know Pappalardo for, however, is his outstanding collection of rare vehicles; specifically, his Ferrari 250 GTO.
The Ferrari 250 GTO still breaks records to this day. Not for speed or race wins, but for aesthetics, rarity, and cost. The 250 GTO is one of the most costly cars to ever be sold at auction, with some breaking over $45 million. This 250 isn't just a garage queen, though. Mr. Pappalardo actually tracks it from time to time and takes it to showings.
For car fans, it's nice to know that this legendary car is owned by someone who respects and appreciates it.
