Rapper, designer, and entrepreneur Kanye West has a reported net worth of over $1.3 billion. While his fortune is invested in many areas, he has splashed a lot of his cash on cars. YouTuber Seb Delanney breaks down his incredible collection.

Famed for his music, his shoe label Yeezy, and owner of a number of businesses, Kanye West is a household name. As you may expect for someone so fashion-conscious, Ye has a number of high-end cars in his garage.

Not all of them are as conventional as you may expect. While there are some ‘typical’ supercars and exotics, there are some surprisingly incognito cars in his collection too.

West has been spotted a number of times in a matte grey-wrapped, ~$150k Porsche Panamera Turbo. Most notably seen in Paris, his wife Kim Kardashian-West has also been seen behind the wheel.

Perhaps more in keeping with the celebrity lifestyle is the Aston Martin DBS. Its naturally-aspirated V12 engine puts out 510hp, and costs around $215,000 when new.

Famously, Kanye and Jay-Z cut up a Maybach for the Otis music video. Costing $411,000 new, the Maybach is now shared between Jay-Z and Kanye.

Sticking with the German theme, West has been seen a number of times in his Mercedes McLaren SLR. Costing $350,000 new, these are now going up in price, and with its celebrity connection, Kanye’s is likely to be worth significantly more than that now.

Kanye West’s supercars

Not only does he own a standard SLR, but also the ultra-rare SLR Stirling Moss. Devoid of any windshield or windows, the whacky two-seater roadster is worth around $2 million.

In typical rapper style, Ye also has a Lamborghini Urus. This super-SUV is powered by a twin-turbo V8, the Urus retails for upwards of $205,000. Kanye also went to town modifying his car, choosing to wrap it an unusual cream color and opting for a set of ‘monoblock’ wheels.

Finally, the cherry on top of his collection is the Bugatti Veyron. One of the original 16.4 models, West reportedly paid nearly $3.5m for his Hermes version of the Veyron, which at the time was the fastest production car in the world.

With a confirmed car collection totaling upwards of $6.4m,  he has also been spotted in various other Lamborghinis, Porsches, and supercars, but it is unclear whether these were in fact his own or just rentals.

Musicians have one of the most intensive lifestyles in the world, touring the globe to promote their work to millions of people. Thankfully, hard work brings rewards, which rappers often spend on incredible car collections.

Luxury items such as exotic cars are seen as a status symbol. They’re a fantastic way to not only ‘flex’ wealth, but also make a statement wherever they go.

Successful rappers such as Drake and Travis Scott love nothing more than showing off their success with ultra-expensive cars, but they’re far from the only ones. Below, we’ve rounded up five of the most expensive cars ever to be owned by rap artists for your enjoyment.

4. Travis Scott’s Maybach G650 Landaulet – $1 million

Travis Scott has one of the most incredible car collections of any rapper. Featuring Ferraris, Lamborghinis, and Bugattis, one of the rarest (and most expensive) cars is his Maybach G650 Landaulet.

With only 99 built, the G650 Landaulet is based upon the Mercedes G Wagon. Featuring a custom extended body with convertible rear section, the G650 puts out over 600hp from its V12 engine.

3. Post Malone’s McLaren Senna XP – $1.7 million

Post Malone is known for his keen love of custom and exotic cars. With his fleet ranging from a custom 1992 Ford Explorer (which he named a song after) to Rolls-Royces, the jewel in this rapper’s collection is undoubtedly his McLaren Senna.

His Senna is no ordinary hypercar, however, with Post having one of the ultra-rare prototypes from McLaren themselves. Dubbed the Senna XP, Master of Monaco, this one-off prototype is worth significantly more than a standard McLaren Senna.

2. Kanye West’s McLaren SLR ‘Stirling Moss’ – $2 million

Kanye’s collection is an eclectic one, but the standout car has to be his McLaren SLR Stirling Moss. Based on the already legendary McLaren SLR, the ‘Stirling Moss’ edition pays tribute to the legendary racing driver of the same name.

Featuring an open two-seat cockpit, 641bhp, and a top speed of 220 mph, the SLR Stirling Moss is a serious performance car. It’s collectible, too, and could turn out to be a very good investment for Kanye in the long run.
