Celebrities With Wild Rides

Celebrities tend to bring in some major cash, and quite often, they spend that cash on supercars, custom builds, and crazy rare machines. While many of the dream cars on this list are European automotive royalty, some of these vehicles are just cool and weird. Check out this collection of the wildest rides that your favorite celebrities drive. 

Will.i.am’s Custom Volkswagen Beetle is a crazy custom build, and it’s not even done yet

It sure doesn’t look like a bug, but rest assured, there is bug DNA in there somewhere. Let’s start with the looks. With cartoony villain vibes, will.i.am’s custom 1958 Volkswagen Beetle appears to have driven right out of a television and into reality. Further, the celebrity’s bug is powered by a supercharged LS3 V8, so it doesn’t sound or go like a Beetle.

That’s right, Mr. Bean loves cars. In fact, this celebrity has owned everything from Gordon Murray’s incomparable McLaren F1 to a rally-ready Lancia Delta Integrale. However, one of the most exciting treasures in Rowan Atkinson’s collection is a nearly-priceless classic BMW 328. As if having the car wasn’t impressive enough, he routinely drives it on public roads. Hats off to you, Mr. Atkinson. If you’ve got it, drive it.

The superstar couple has seemingly done it all, including giving insane gift cars to one another. For example, Beyoncé once thought about what her beloved husband needed for his birthday and landed on precisely the correct answer: a Bugatti Veyron. If that wasn’t enough, the couple also has a $28,000,000 Rolls-Royce Boat Tail. Rolls-Royce themselves calls it “the most ambitious car ever made.”

Superstar Lady Gaga loves her classic cars. She has a 1967 Ford Bronco, a 1967 Ford Mustang convertible, and a 1970 Chevrolet El Camino. However, not even these three are as quirky and cool as the crispy, delicious crown jewel of this celebrity’s collection: a W123 Mercedes-Benz 300D that runs on french fry oil. 

Ludacris might have the coolest car for keeping himself grounded

Ludacris is no stranger to loud, fast, larger-than-life cars. Not only did he co-star in the Fast movie franchise, but the celebrity personally owns a Lamborghini Huracan and a rare Chrysler ME412 supercar. However, one of the most admirable vehicles in his collection is his beloved Acura Legend. It might not sound like much, but he drove the car before he got his first record deal. Furthermore, the music and movie star drives the car to keep himself grounded. That’s pretty cool. 

Not all celebrity collections are flashy cars with no story or character

The cars that Ideal Cars put on this list are awesome for reasons beyond being fast or bright. Noteworthy additions to the celebrity car-coveting greats include Steven Tyler from Aerosmith, The Weeknd, Bill Gates, and 50 Cent. Each of these celebrities has amazing vehicles of their own.
