For superstars and the super-rich, cars are more than a form of transportation. They are a status symbol as well. Collecting cars has long been a hobby for celebrities to show off their taste and wealth.

Batmobile and the DeLorean

In Hollywood, the Batmobile is the getaway car for the caped crusader, and we love to see it.

The Batmobile has been reinvented many times, with each version having its unique features. But the original 1966 version that was owned by Adam West is perhaps the most famous, and it’s no surprise it’s been a part of many car collections over the years.

There’s also the DeLorean, a car that gained fame thanks to its appearance in the 1985 film, Back to the Future. Doc Brown’s Delorean DMC-12 has a sleek, stainless steel exterior and gull-wing doors. Its unique, retro-futurism design has made it a favorite among car enthusiasts and collectors.

The famous comedian and car collector Jay Leno is known for his deep-seated penchant for unusual vehicles. And he has a stash of green Benjamins to splurge on the four-wheelers! Leno’s eclectic car collections include a jet-powered motorcycle and a steam-powered car. But his longest-owned acquisition is a 955 Buick Roadmaster.

Meanwhile, rapper Nicki Minaj has a $450,000 bright pink Lamborghini Aventador that turns heads wherever she goes. She acquired the Aventador in 2010 after her first Solo Album.

Customization to stand out

Some celebrities have taken customization to the next level by adding unique features to their rides. The standard features just don’t offer enough street cred to stand out for some celebrities!

For example, Justin Bieber’s Fisker Karma has been wrapped in chrome, while David Beckham’s Rolls Royce Phantom features a custom paint job that pays tribute to his love of tattoos.

Indeed, the rich and the famous have the means to express the entrenched love of every one of the car enthusiasts. And don’t we love to see it?
