Jay-Zs Maybach Excelero: An Eight Million Dollar Machine
Rappers love to drive flashy cars, but Jay-Z’s Maybach tops anything from around the hip-hop world.
The rap game is all about showing off what you have, and aside from scores of fly honies, lots of tacky gold jewelry and bottles of overpriced booze, the best way to show off your baller status is your ride. The folks from “Page Six” put together a video detailing three of the biggest names in the hip hop world and what they drive. The Hip Hop world, of course, led by Jay-Z and his $8,000,000 Maybach.
The video above begins by looking at the rides of P-Diddy (or whatever he calls himself today) and Kanye West.
Sean Combs – aka Puff Daddy aka P-Diddy aka Diddy – drives a Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe. This luxury machine will go 155 miles per hour and it costs around $443,000.
West went a little sportier when he bought his big-money-car, opting for the $400,000 Lamborghini Aventador in matte black. His car cost more than Diddy’s Rolls and it is quite a bit faster, offering a top speed of 217 miles per hour.
But Jay-Z Tops Them Both.
Jay-Z is arguably the biggest name in the rap game, so it is fitting that he drives one of the most expensive cars in the world. Actually, he drives a bunch of different high-end cars, but the crème of his crop is the Maybach Excelero.
This one-off super-coupe was originally built in 2005 and in 2011, rapper Birdman agreed to pay $8,000,000 for the 692-horsepower, 218-mile per hour luxury two-seater. However, Birdman allegedly failed to pay the bill for the seven-figure Maybach and, a short time later, Jay-Z handed over the money for the one-of-one luxury liner.
It doesn’t get any rarer than one-of-one and, with a price tag of $8,000,000, there aren’t many cars from major automakers that carry a bigger price tag.
