At this point, you’ve probably heard this song by rapper Rick Ross and Skrillex. Called “Purple Lamborghini,” the song first released for a DC Comics film. Now, it’s common musical accompaniment for an array of videos on social media platforms like Tik Tok and Instagram. But do either Rick Ross or Skrillex actually own a purple Lamborghini?
What is ‘Purple Lamborghini’ about?
The song “Purple Lamborghini” was originally released as a single for the DC Comics film, Suicide Squad. The lyrics are based on a villain in the movie, The Joker. And they conjure up some pretty violent images.
The theme of the song orbits around The Joker, a tattooed gangster version of the iconic comic book character. The music video for the Skrillex and Rick Ross song features Jared Leto as his character of The Joker in Suicide Squad. The song undeniably vibes with Leto’s character.
What car does The Joker drive in Suicide Squad?
Interestingly enough, the “Vadyor” purple Lamborghini that’s seen in the DC Comics film isn’t even a Lamborghini, according to Insider. In fact, it’s actually a kit car. Insider reports that Matt MacEntegart designed specifically for Suicide Squad. It’s a fiberglass body kit that’s built over an Infiniti G35 chassis.
That said, it does resemble a purple Lamborghini. And the song pairs well with clips of The Joker in scenes featuring the purple Lamborghini look-alike set car. However, these kits are actually for sale to the masses. Anyone can buy the kit, according to Inverse. So not only The Joker from Suicide Squad drives this car. Pretty much anyone can.
What cars does Skrillex have?
Information on Skrillex’s car collection is pretty elusive. Thanks to Celebrity Net Worth, we do know that Skrillex has a net worth of around $50 million. That kind of cash can buy pretty much any car. So why not a purple Lamborghini like in the Skrillex and Rick Ross song?
While we can’t confirm that Skrillex has ever driven a purple Lamborghini, Hot Cars tells us that he’s seen in California driving a Land Rover Range Rover SUV. We can certainly imagine that if a Range Rover is someone’s daily driver, the rest of their collection is probably insane. However, it’s hard to find good hard evidence confirming which cars Skrillex actually owns.
Does rapper Rick Ross have a purple Lamborghini?
Rick Ross does not own a purple Lamborghini. However, CarBuzz reports that he did own a Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Roadster. According to Hot Cars he still owns a Murcielago in addition to several other epic vehicles. His car collection includes not one, but two Bentleys, a modified Ferrari 458 Italia, a Mercedes S-Class, and several others.
In fact, according to Celeb Answers rapper Rick Ross owns about 50 different cars. There’s no telling exactly which models he has in his entire collection. But we’re pretty sure it would be common knowledge if he actually had a purple Lamborghini like in the Rick Ross and Skrillex song.
