With access to a plethora of gorgeous supercars, Randy from Savage Garage is living any petrolhead’s dream. Despite having so many incredible cars to choose from, it seems that his favorite is the Pagani Huayra, as he explains in SG’s September 14 video.

Randy has some incredible hypercars in his collection, the highlights of which are undoubtedly the Koenigsegg CCX and his Pagani Huayra.

It would seem that despite the Koenigsegg being rarer and more ‘exotic’ the favorite car for Randy is in fact his $2.6m Pagani Huayra. Owning the car is a “dream come true” for him, and it’s clear he’s completely smitten by the outlandish hypercar.

The Pagani Huayra created quite a scene while filming in Miami.

“Spaceship noises”

One of the best parts of the Pagani is the open-mechanism shifter on the center console. The Huayra is fitted with a 7-speed sequential transmission, which can be shifted via the paddles “if you just want to fly by” or using the ornate central shifter, which Randy appears to prefer.

There are some excessive features too, such as the custom Pagani key. Designed to be an exact replica of the Huayra; Randy says it’s essentially “a $400 Mercedes key with a $7k Sterling Silver body kit!”

The $2.6m hypercar also makes a lot of “spaceship noises” which are fantastically entertaining. This was in fact deliberate, as the designer of the Huayra wanted to replicate his love for aerospace engineering, incorporating acoustic features such as making the “immense” turbos sound like jet engines when spooling up.

“You could drive in this all day long”

Randy also says he’s a big fan of the design of the car as a whole, stating the engineers did “an amazing job” right down to the divisive interior design. Some say it’s ‘gaudy’, but he calls it “stunning… like a fine watch.”

In comparison to the Koenigsegg, the Huayra makes a far better ‘grand tourer’ and is much more “usable” on long distances, with it being “super easy to drive” and “very comfortable… the Koenigsegg is comfortable, but this [the Pagani] is way more comfortable.”

The power delivery for the Huayra is also incredible, very “smooth” and instantaneous. It hides the speed well, with Randy saying “it’s so fast… it doesn’t feel like you’re doing [high speeds] at all.”

Summing up the Pagani, Randy says it’s “truly unique, completely exciting… it’s such a different experience, this is a ‘drama’ car in every way” – clearly the Pagani is the new garage favorite!

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.

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.
