13 Famous People You Didn’t Know Own A Bugatti

Many celebrities buy exotic sports cars like Ferraris and expensive EVs like Teslas, but one supercar status symbol reigns supreme… the Bugatti.

Launched in 2005 with a whopping $1.7 million price tag, the Bugatti Veyron, is an incredible piece of engineering and design. Despite its age, the Veyron still steals the show when parked among other breathtaking cars; some might even argue that Bruce Wayne could use it for his Batmobile. Apart from the Veyron, Bugatti also builds a handful of other incredible supercars ranging from old classics to the new Chiron.

Sure, on the surface, Bugattis seem like an overpriced Volkswagen Group product, but when you take into consideration the amount of hand-crafted precision that goes into every single one’s reduction, it starts to seem somewhat justifiable. Just somewhat. Oh, and who can forget Bugatti’s powerful powertrains that put out more than 1,000 hp nowadays which in turn allow them to be some of the most potent performance cars on the market to date. Bugatti might not necessarily be one of the car brands with the most reliable engines, but they sure as hell are one of the most praised.

As we’ve mentioned previously, Bugatti manufactured much more than just the Veyron and the Chiron; these two hypercars are just their star athletes. Many older Bugattis still remain well sought-after to this day like the EB110 and the Type 51, but we’ll get into that soon enough. Here is a list of celebrities who own some type of Bugatti, whether it be a brand-spanking new supercar, or an old racer.

13. Post Malone – Bugatti Chiron

Estimated Value: $3 Million

There has never been a time when an all-white supercar hasn’t looked good, and Post Malone’s breathtaking Bugatti Chiron is no exception. Many of us know Post Malone from his successful music career, but one thing you might not have known is that he’s a hardcore gearhead.

Most of his collection consists of the same basic color scheme and consists of things like the modern Ford GT, and Lamborghini Aventador SV, but his $3 million Chiron takes the cake for best-dressed. There is one heartbreaking part to his Bugatti however, he sold it a few years back… but that also involved quite the lawsuit. A story for another day.

12. Drake – Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir

Estimated Value: $1.5 Million

Drake owns some incredible cars – some beautiful ones, and others well, not so beautiful. Luckily, his black Bugatti doesn’t fit into the latter category. Drake’s Bugatti was not an ordinary one either, it was the Veyron Sang Noir.

Only 12 examples of this limited supercar were ever made, and each one of them got finished in a rich jet-black color with some visible carbon fiber throughout its body. The Sang Noir drew inspiration from Van Gogh, who once said: “It often seems to me that the night is much more alive and richly colored than the day.”

11. Ralph Lauren – Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic

Estimated Value: $40 million

He doesn’t own your “average” Bugatti, folks. It’s Ralph Lauren, the billionaire who’s primarily known for his clothing brand. So, it’s no surprise that this timeless designer doesn’t own your cliché Veyron or Chiron. Ralph Lauren owns one of only four Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantics in the world – well, one mysteriously vanished over the years, so only three’s present whereabouts are public information…

And it’s worth — brace yourself — $40 million. Of course, this is just an estimate, and it might be worth significantly more since no car can objectively be worth that much money. It’s the hands that the car touched that pump the price up like that. It’s the history that’s written in the car that makes it so costly. Not only that, but it’s the culture that the car has seen that makes it so expensive… It’s the exclusivity that’s worth $40 million.

10. Jay Leno – Bugatti Type 51

Estimated Value: $758,500

Jay Leno owns a vast variety of cars; some of his cars are exceptionally cool and some are super strange, but out of all of his cars, the Bugatti Type 51 stands out from the rest. For the untrained eye, the Type 51 might look like any old car with a peculiar wheel strapped to its side, but we as car guys know this specific Bugatti was a racecar from the ’30s.

Jay Leno’s Bugatti Type 51 has a signature blue color scheme, a wooden steering wheel, and a unique spare wheel mounted on its side. Sure, this might not be as extravagant as a Chiron, or quite as rare as an Atlantic, but it’s nowhere from earning the title of mundane.

9. Simon Cowell – Bugatti Veyron

Estimated Value: $1.15 Million

“You did actually sound like you were drowning when you were singing. Literally. I have never heard anyone sing while they drown, but I think that’s what it would sound like.” With retorts like these, Cowell is well-known to not be shy about his displeasure, so he doesn’t just drive any old over-hyped classic car, or overall vehicle fit for a celebrity – not pointing fingers at the Mercedes-Benz G-Class of course…

Mister Cowell has sharp business acumen, so it’s no surprise he has come to rule as the CEO of the British entertainment company Syco and portrays the role of a hard-to-impress judge in various televised competitions. As a result, Simon Cowell owns a simplistic, yet tasteful Black Bugatti Veyron that blends into traffic as much as a lion does at an aquarium.

8. Tom Brady – Bugatti Veyron

Estimated Value: $1.15 Million

With an independent net worth of around $200 million and a combined net worth of more than $300 million, Tom Brady has a lot of things going for him. He’s like the cultural icon of America, to a reasonable extent. Actually, he reminds us of an American David Beckham.

Both are legendary players, having performed exceptionally well in their careers. When you have a look at his car Tom Brady’s car collection, it makes you even more envious of him. Brady owns an understated blacked-out Veyron, much like the one Simon Cowell does… only newer, and better.

7. Flo Rida – Bugatti Veyron

Estimated Value: $1.15 Million

See, it takes a long time before the actual “breakout” happens for a lot of these celebrities. Flo Rida started rapping as early as the ninth grade (1995) in a group, and it was almost 12 years after that, that he achieved success. He even studied business management for two months after high school, but then, he got back into music. Local recordings here and there transpired, but Flo Rida kept pushing on until recording a hit with “Low” in 2008.

With his newfound fame, Flo Rida decided to reward himself with something that’s as close to a one-of-one vehicle as money can buy. Therefore, he took his “normal” Bugatti Veyron and then had it wrapped in chrome gold. Flashy or distasteful? You decide.

6. Tom Cruise – Bugatti Veyron

Estimated Value: $1.15 Million

As influential as a Bugatti is, Tom Cruise is even more so. Despite Cruise’s age, to this day, he still starts in some of the most renowned action films, such as the Mission Impossible franchise and the latest Top Gun film, and he continues to do his own stunts as well.

But not only is Cruise a badass in the movies, but in real life, he is equally so. Tom Cruise is one of the wealthiest actors alive, so with a net worth of about $350 million, it’s no surprise he drives a stunning understated black and gray Bugatti Veyron.

5. Cristiano Ronaldo – Bugatti Chiron

Estimated Value: $3 Million

Ronaldo has proven himself as one of the greatest soccer players, and some would even argue that he’s the greatest soccer player of our time. Media outlets often label him as “arrogant,” but we think it’s something as simple as confidence. And what does a confident man need? A Bugatti of course.

Well, we stand corrected. Cristiano Ronaldo owns not just one, but three Bugatti supercars. A Bugatti Chiron, a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, and he’s also rumored to own the incredibly rare Bugatti Centodieci of which only 10 exist.

4. Floyd Mayweather – Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport

Estimated Value: $1.35 Million

While Mayweather flaunts his wealth as no one has ever seen, he has also never lost a fight out of his 50 different matches. Not once. Unsurprisingly, with such an incredible feat, Mayweather gets paid quite a pretty penny. A penny so pretty in fact, that he ranks as one of the highest-paid athletes excluding ads and endorsements, just from punching the opponent.

Floyd Mayweather’s car collection might not be as large as Jay Leno’s, but the cars he acquired throughout his lifetime sure make him a worthy candidate for the best celebrity car collection of all time. In his garage stood several Bugattis alongside a plethora of other exotic cars, and even an extremely limited Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita, Just like Post Malone had a white-on-white Bugatti Chiron, Floyd Mayweather created the trend with his white-on-white Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport.

3.Arnold Schwarzenegger – Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport

Estimated Value: $1.35 Million

2. Jay-Z – Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport

Estimated Value: $1.35 Million

To most fans of old school Hip Hop, Jay-Z is one of the greatest rappers ever. It’s hard to argue with this as Jay-Z has won multiple awards, built an entertainment empire in the form of Roc Nation, and is one of the few music artists to surpass 1 billion dollars in net worth. Jay-Z is also married to Beyoncé, who’s equally as successful in the music and entertainment business.

Jay-Z and Beyoncé have a history of buying each other lavish gifts during key celebrations. One such instance happened in 2010 when Beyoncé went all out and bought Jay-Z a brand new Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport for his 41st birthday. We all need a Beyoncé in our lives!

1. Kylie Jenner – Bugatti Chiron

Estimated Value: $3 Million

The Kardashians are arguably the most famous family in the world, having dominated the headlines over the last two decades largely thanks to their reality show Meet The Kardashians. This fame has enabled the Kardashians to create valuable businesses, one of which is Kylie Jenner’s Kylie Cosmetics.
