10 Most Expensive Cars Owned By Celebrities

From the Rolls-Royce Boat Tail to the Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic, these are some of the most exclusive cars sitting in celebrity collections.

Celebrities often have a penchant for expensive, luxury cars that make a statement and reflect their style. Owning flashy possessions can be a way for them to reinforce their status and image and show off their wealth and success. Still, some celebrities simply have a passion for expensive, luxury cars and enjoy collecting them as a hobby. For them, it may be less about showing off and more about appreciating the craftsmanship and design of these high-end vehicles.

Previously, we’ve covered many top celebrity car collections, some worth up to eight figures. Celebrity car collectors span from comedians like Jay Leno and Jerry Seinfeld to fashion moguls like Ralph Lauren and famous sports individuals like Cristiano Ronaldo. While each collection is impressive in its rights, some boast highly exclusive toys that compete for the most expensive celebrity car bragging rights.

10. Aston Martin One-77 – $1.8M: Samuel Eto’o

Aston Martin only introduced its first supercar, the One-77, in 2008. It featured a sleek, aerodynamic design with a long hood, sharp lines, and a low-slung profile on a lightweight carbon fiber monocoque chassis.

Under the hood lies a beastly 7.3-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine pushing 750 ponies. It was a limited production-run car with just 77 units that weren’t cheap, with a sticker price of about $1.87 million. Former footballer Samuel Eto’o owns a copy.

9. Ferrari Monza – $2M: Gordon Ramsay, Cristiano Ronaldo, Zlatan Ibrahimovic

The Ferrari Monza SP is a limited-edition sports car based on the Ferrari 812 Superfast, but it features a unique design inspired by classic Ferrari race cars from the 1950s. The Monza SP comes in two versions, the single-seater Monza SP1 and the Monza SP2 featuring a passenger seat, which cost about $2 million. Both versions have an open-top design with a low windshield and a roll bar for added safety.

Ferrari invited Cristiano Ronaldo to Italy to spec his Ferrari Monza SP2, and he opted for an exclusive red shade. Other celebrity Ferrari Monza owners include fellow footballer Zlatan Ibrahimovic and celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay.

8. Bugatti Chiron – $3.1M: Cristiano Ronaldo

After spending nearly two decades at the top level of soccer, Cristiano Ronaldo has amassed a big fortune and can afford the flashiest toys. He recently signed a $200 million per year contract, with the Saudi Arabian soccer team, Al-Nassr, making him the best-paid athlete.

So, it’s no surprise he can afford to splash $3.1 million on a Bugatti Chiron to make it three Bugattis in his enviable garage. Ronaldo’s Chiron has top specifications and comes with his signature CR7 logo.

7. 1955 Porsche 550 RS – $3M: Jerry Seinfeld

As of 2023, Jerry Seinfeld is the richest comedian in the world, with an estimated net worth of about $950 million.

The majority are highly sought-after Porsches, including the 1955 Porsche 550 RS, valued at $3 million.

The 550 RS was Porsche’s first purpose-built race car, and its success on the racetrack earned it the nickname ‘Giant Killer.’ Porsche built only 90 copies, making it one of the rarest and most coveted Porsche cars.

6. Maybach Exelero – $8M: Jay-Z

5. Bugatti Centodieci – $12M: Cristiano Ronaldo

In 2919 Bugatti announced they’d build 10 Centodieci examples to celebrate the brand’s 110th anniversary and pay tribute to the Bugatti EB110SS. Deliveries only began in 2022, and Cristiano Ronaldo is on the exclusive list of 10 lucky owners.

The Centodieci is an improvement on the Bugatti Chiron, making it the ultimate modern Bugatti. Initially, it had an $8 million price tag, but according to Robb Reports, there are new listings of $4.4m over the sticker price, making it one of the most expensive celebrity-owned rides.

4. McLaren F1 – $20M: Ralph Lauren, Jay Leno, Rowan Atkinson, Elon Musk

Thanks to its rarity and historical significance, Gordon Murray’s masterpiece, the McLaren, is one of the most prized collector’s items.

The most expensive example sold at the Pebble Beach auction for $20.5 million in 2021.

2. Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic – $40M: Ralph Lauren

The art deco era gave us some of the most stunning automotive creations, including the Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic. Bugatti built three Atlantics, effectively making it one of the rarest and most expensive cars in the world, worth a ridiculous $40 million.

1. Ferrari 250 GTO – $55.8M: Ralph Lauren, Nick Mason
