Drake: 7 of His Insanely Expensive Cars
When you’re one of the most successful rap artists and producers in the world, with more than 5 million albums sold worldwide, you tend to have a lot of money. When that artist is Drake, it means he has somewhere around $75 million (per Celebrity Net Worth). With money like that, you better bet he has plenty of cash to buy cool cars.
Unlike a lot of other incredibly successful artists, it appears that Drake isn’t all that interested in sports cars. Instead, he tends to go for luxury cars. You can’t really fault him for wanting to be pampered and roll in comfort, though.
So what’s Drake driving these days? After combing through his Instagram account and other social media sources, we tracked down seven cars he’s been photographed with to give you a glimpse into what it’s like to live the life of Drake.
1. Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible
When Drake wants to feel the wind in his hair and rocket down the highway while still being as comfortable as possible, his car of choice is the Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible. With 616 horsepower coming from its 6.0-liter W12 engine, the Continental GT Speed Convertible is certainly quick. In fact, if Drake puts the top up, his car is capable of breaking 200 miles per hour. If you want to ride like Drake, be ready to drop nearly $300,000, though.
2. Bentley Mulsanne
The Continental is great for dropping the top and driving around town, but when he wants true luxury, the better Bentley is the Mulsanne. It starts a few thousand dollars north of $300,000, and it may only make 505 horsepower, but it’s also not meant to be a luxury cruise missile. Instead, it’s the perfect car to drive or be driven in when you want to be completely unaware of what’s going on in the rest of the world.
3. Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo Coupe
Whether you choose the S550, the S63 AMG, or the S65 AMG, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe is both fast and luxurious. If none of those options are fancy enough for you, though, you can pay Brabus to customize the S63 AMG Coupe for you. The exterior gets a body kit, the interior gets a makeover, and the engine is bored out and tuned to produce 850 horsepower. If Drake ever gets bored of only going 202 miles per hour in his Continental, the Brabus he owns will go as fast as 217.
4. Bugatti Veyron
Are you really rich if you don’t own a Bugatti Veyron? It might be possible, but it’s probably not worth trying. Even if the Veyron might feel like a cliche choice for Drake, driving one is a status symbol that lets people know he’s willing to spend well over a million dollars on arguably the fastest production car ever made. Forget 217 miles per hour in the Brabus. In his Veyron, Drake can do more than 250 miles per hour. If he’s driving to Chipotle though, he’ll only be doing about eight miles per gallon, so he better hope his tours keep selling out if he wants to continue to be able to afford gas.
5. Lamborghini Gallardo
The Lamborghini Gallardo might not cost nearly as much money as the Bugatti Veyron, nor is it remotely as fast, but it’s notable partly because it’s the only car on this list that Drake might be able to take to the track. Most Gallardo owners don’t track their cars, but hopefully Drake occasionally takes some time out of his busy schedule to rent out a track and burn through some tires.
6. Maybach 62S
Daimler may have struggled to find buyers for its Maybach brand, but apparently Drake liked what he saw enough that he dropped more than $400,000 on a 6.2-meter long version. Its Mercedes-sourced V12 makes 604 horsepower, but the 62S isn’t about straight-line speed. It’s about being long and luxurious. The question is, though, how does Drake choose whether to take the Maybach 62S or the Bentley Muslanne? Maybe he flips a coin?
7. Rolls-Royce Phantom
To make the decision process even harder, Drake also has a Rolls-Royce Phantom. That means he has three ultra-luxury sedans that cost more than most people spend on a house. The Phantom is the legend, though. It’s the car the Maybach and the Mulsanne were resurrected to compete with. One picture even makes it look like Drake’s Phantom has the Starlight Headliner. It might not be the most necessary of all features, but who wouldn’t want to feel like they’re riding under a cloudless, starry night at all times?
