DailyDrivenExotics ‘harassed’ by police for driving supercars

The DailyDrivenExotics (DDE) team doesn’t have the best of luck when it comes to dealing with cops. Unfortunately, it seems their bad luck streak continues, with the DDE team being ‘harrased’ by cops while parked up with other supercars.

Sharing their journey via the DDE Instagram page, Damon and Dave showed a group of supercars parked up at Lake Louise while taking a break from a cross-country road trip. Given that the cars were parked up innocently and amongst other cars, there shouldn’t be any cause for concern.

It seems that one police officer took exception to this, however, with Damon confronting the cop over why he was taking down information and photographing the supercars without any crimes being committed.

“I wanna be able to have your info”

In the video shared on the DDE Instagram, the cop can be seen photographing the number plates of the parked-up supercars, apparently taking great interest in the minor details about them.

Having approached the cop with a friendly “how’s it going?” Damon asks why they’re taking photos of a blacked-out Nissan GTR R35. It seems that this cop is suspicious of the drivers’ behavior, saying “if you fly past me fast enough I can’t get the plates, and I wanna be able to have your info.”

By assuming that the drivers of these supercars will “fly by” the police, this cop is questioning the DDE crew and their friends and taking information based only upon the cars that they are driving.

You can see the Instagram videos starting at 7:00 in this Life of Palos video:

No crimes committed

When asked why he didn’t photograph a Kia SUV, he simply says “my Chevy can catch the Kia” furthering the assumption that these supercar owners will drive recklessly.

The officer then says he’s “seen [the DDE] YouTube channel, so I figured I should get some information” working on the assumption the drivers would be performing stunts or driving recklessly.

Having admitted that no crimes were committed and no calls were made, there was no further action. In a post on Dave’s Instagram account, it seems that they did run into more trouble later in the day, so expect to see a full ‘Cops vs DDE’ style video soon.

Dj, rapper and producer DJ Khaled lives life by his “we the best” motto, and his luxurious car collection certainly confirms that. Featuring the best-of-the-best, Khaled knows how to travel in style.

With his signature “we the best” starting his songs, DJ Khaled knows how to live life to the full. His garage is living proof of that, featuring only top-shelf luxuries on four wheels.

Khaled’s net worth is estimated to be around the $70 million mark, and a good $4 million of that is invested in his cars. Featuring typical Rolls-Royces and Range Rovers, there are also a few rare oddities within his collection.

DJ Khaled’s Rolls Royces

While many celebrities would be happy with one ultra-luxurious Rolls Royce, Khaled is clearly a connoisseur of the brand. With no less than five in his collection, he can have one for each day of the working week, and still leave other cars for weekend duties.

His Rolls-Royce collection reads like a back-catalog of their entire brand. Wraiths, Ghosts, Phantoms – they’re all included.

Highlights of his ‘Roller’ collection have to be the Phantom 8 and Phantom Drophead Coupe. Two of the most expensive Rolls Royces ever made, the 8 is worth a cool $450,000 while the Drophead Coupe is worth a whopping $533,000!

In an interview with Forbes, Khaled explained his love for the brand: “What I love about Rolls-Royce is, you look at me, it’s like you’re looking at a Rolls-Royce. It’s just powerful; Smooth; It’s iconic.”

DJ Khaled’s Maybachs

The other brand that Khaled has a major love affair with is Maybach. Going head-to-head with Rolls Royce for the luxury market, Maybachs are often loved by those in the music game, and are referred to regularly in pop culture.

Featuring opulent interiors, stunning styling, and lavish details, Maybachs are one of the classiest ways to travel on four wheels.

Khaled owns two of these high-rolling vehicles. The first is a 2012 Maybach 57s, a luxurious sedan loved by the celebrity elite across the globe.

His other Maybach is significantly more interesting, being a Landaulet. Costing well in excess of $1.3 million, this convertible Maybach is the epitome of open-top luxury, topping even his RR Drophead Coupe.

DJ Khaled’s other cars

Khaled clearly isn’t a fan of high-performance, no-frills supercars or hypercars, as he doesn’t have any in his collection. Other than his Rolls-Royces and Maybachs, there are a couple of other SUVs in his garage.

Typical for most LA celebrities is a Range Rover, and Khaled’s Range Rover Sport is surprisingly modest given his usual taste. As is his Caddilac Escalade, which is perfect for blending into the traffic for incognito transportation.

As with the rest of Khaled’s life, the only way is up – we look forward to seeing what his next car additions will be.
