Cars have been the markers of success for celebrities throughout the years. The more success you see, the more [expensive] cars you have in your garage. Some of the most famous celebrities in the world have dropped wads of cash for vehicles and with a world full of celebrities, picking out the best celebrity cars is a daunting task…but we’ve seen to it. Here in this list, you’ll find all the coolest and most expensive rides in some of the most famous garages in the world.
DJ Khaled is just one of many celebrities with a Wraith, but his Wraith is one that fits him well. With a bright, electric blue exterior, you won’t often see Wraiths on the street with as much personality. With Khaled’s sense of flash and style, the Rolls Royce Wraith is a perfect fit for the rap star’s extensive car collection.
Never heard of Jon Olsson? He’s a famous freeskier and alpine ski racer turned car enthusiast. Olsson has been creating his own versions of cars we love, but the most popular car he’s customized is the Mercedes G500 4×4 Squared without a roof. This car has rarely been seen out and about, but when it hits the road it grabs the attention of everyone around it. Even without a roof, the G500, after customizations, almost touches the ceiling in parking garages. This car doesn’t have the highest speed or most horsepower, but it sure looks cool.
Jay Leno is known for having an array of amazing cars, but one of our favorites is his concept EcoJet that was created in collaboration with General Motors. Built on a modified Corvette chassis, you can see some similarities between the EcoJet and America’s favorite sports car. The EcoJet was one of the first footsteps taken by GM to create an electric sports car. The car runs on biodiesel and reaches over 160 miles per hour top speed. We’re not entirely sure what the car cost, but Jay Leno lent his garage to the team building the car so maybe he got a heavy discount?

For a man the size of Shaq, what did you expect? If you’ve never heard of an F-650, it’s mostly because it’s a commercial vehicle turned into Shaq’s super truck. This truck is Shaq’s daily driver. You heard me right, DAILY DRIVER. It seems extravagant to own a truck that large, but Shaq is one of the largest guys on Earth, so a truck that size is like a regular Ford F-150 to a normal driver. There’s nothing too spiffy about Shaq’s F-650, its luxuries are relative to that of a luxurious F-150, but the fact that a celebrity has taken an everyday truck and made it super makes it one of a kind.
George Clooney was hit with a lot of commentary after purchasing a Tango T600. These unique looking cars are either hit or miss with car lovers, but Clooney loved it so much he bought the very first one. This vehicle, though oddly-shaped, has a few perks. If you own a Tango T600, you most likely find yourself parked in the front row because the width and length of the car is relatively the same size as motorcycles. The T600 is an electric vehicle with a maximum range of 80 miles and an 80% charging time of 10 minutes. For a casual $108,000, you and George Clooney could be car twins! And that’s pretty cool, too.
Ice-T’s Fisker Karma was made during Fisker’s attempt to bring electric sports vehicles to life in 2012. With a top speed of 125 mph and 255 hp, Karma models didn’t outpace many of the other sports cars on the market, which led to some serious consequences for Fisker. Ice-T paid a casual $110,000 for the car, but what many people don’t realize is that the cost to build one Fisker Karma was approximately $600,000, leading in part to Fisker’s bankruptcy.
Feeling like dropping $8 million? If so, your check could cover the first ever Maybach Exelero that now belongs to Jay-Z.

Despite his excitement for the Lotus Esprit, Musk was slightly disappointed to realize that the car didn’t transform between water and land travel on its own.
