MOST wealthy car collectors can at least drive the cars they own – but for some time that was not the case for this multi-millionaire-musician.
American rapper, Rick Ross, was only granted his license last year, despite boasting a fleet of 100 vehicles including Ferraris and Lamborghinis.
In September 2021, he told Today that he had finally received his licence at the age of 45.
He told the outlet: “I actually was driven to the test. I have over 100 cars, and I just hadn’t had my license.
“So whenever I go joy riding, you know, it was just one of those things.”
He added: “My mom and sister pressured me, finally, so I went, took the test.
“It took me an hour. You know, I missed a few answers but I got it, I got it.”
On Saturday, the rapper, who has a net worth of $45 million, showed his stunning collection of cars and bikes on his 235-acre estate in Fayetteville, Georgia.
In one image, posted on Instagram, he can be seen stood in front of fleet of shiny red vehicles including a 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air.
According to Hot Cars, the price of a good condition model can be between £25,000 and $60,000.
It was considered a marked beauty of its time, packing a V8 engine, full of fancy chrome profiles and in two-tone paint.
Alongside included three Chevrolet Impala models, including 1960, 1971 (a custom Gucci Model) and a 1973.
The trio could cost a buyer a massive sum of $40,000.
In more modern terms, the rapper boasts a Rolls-Royce Wraith and Phantom.
The Wraith is a two-door coupe Rolls-Royce that is designed as the sportiest car the British firm makes.
The Wraith starts from around $312,000 but as with all Rolls-Royces the options lists are endless and some customers spend more than £1m on their Rollers by the time they’ve finished ticking boxes.
It’s powered by a massive 6.6-litre twin-turbo V12 engine producing 624hp.
One up from that is the expensive Phantom model starting at $363,600 with a 6.7 litres engine.
Said to be bullet proof and able to provide clients with highest levels of protection, it’s a ride that even James Bond would be proud of.
Rounding off the stunning collection is an electric mix of Ferrari’s, Lamborghinis, Mercedes Benz’s and Bentleys.
Some are worth up to around $300,000.
And that’s not to forget Rick’s ownership of some electric vehicles which are better for the environment.
He has at least one Tesla Model 3, estimated to be worth $46,000
Ahead of the huge event yesterday, he described it as the “biggest car show in history.”
