This might be the first time he’s in the news for driving a Maybach minivan, but Kanye West is always in the news for something. This isn’t any minivan, though; it’s a one-of-a-kind Mercedes-Maybach minivan in the “Executive Style.” While Ye is busy courting Julia Fox, will she be in the passenger seat of this luxury ride anytime soon?
The one-of-a-kind Mercedes-Maybach Minivan Kanye West is driving
Last week, Kanye West took a trip to get ice cream that was all over the gossip sites. But the most important part of the ice cream outing was definitely his new ride. Mr. West was seen getting into a matte silver Mercedes-Maybach minivan with a temporary plate on it.
This van is called the V-Class EXCLUSIVE through Mercedes, made even more exclusive with the Maybach badge. The van has sliding doors for easy access since he has a gaggle of children these days. Mercedes calls the van the “Redefinition of the MVP,” with this version being called “a particularly luxurious variant.” However, you can’t find this Maybach minivan in stores.
TMZ says the Mercedes-Maybach minivan is a one-of-a-kind creation from Wires Only. The Maybach is called the Executive Style version, and this one was created just for Kanye, obviously.
Kanye West’s Mercedes-Maybach minivan costs upwards of $400,000
Since this is Kanye West, after all, you can’t just buy one of these minivans off the lot. Wires Only owner, RD Whittington, is working on a new show with Jamie Foxx called “Million Dollar Wheels.” This would explain the insane Mercedes-Maybach minivan Kanye is rolling around in.
The inside of the van has room for all four of his children to sit in comfort. In the Executive Mercedes-Maybach minivan, buyers can have four ultra-plush seats facing one another or seven seats with captain’s chairs. Mercedes says it has many cupholders (a necessity) and a custom Starlight Headliner. Custom privacy blinds and TVs in the headrest were a must. This van also likely has an impressive audio setup for the musician.
This minivan supposedly cost $400,000, but it likely cost more to get it up to Kanye’s standards. While he has been busy love-bombing Julia Fox, will she be down with a lux minivan? Maybe if he slaps a designer label on it.
Ye is a fan of Maybachs and Lamborghinis
Kanye West has quite an impressive car collection, including a variety of Maybach vehicles. Motorious reports that he had a Maybach 57 that he famously chopped up for the Otis video with Jay-Z. Ye has also been spotted in a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren.
One of his first luxury vehicles was a white Lamborghini Gallardo. Eventually, that was traded in for a matte black Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4. Kanye was also known for driving a Lamborghini Urus, which he wrapped in a few different colors. His wife/ex-wife Kim Kardashian West received a lot of hate for covering her own Lamborghini Urus in a fuzzy material as a publicity stunt.
He was in the news back in late 2021 when he gifted his wife five Maybachs in an attempt to win her back. Kim’s love language is no longer Mercedes-Maybach vehicles since the pair is still divorcing. For now, Julia Fox might be riding shotgun in the Mercedes-Maybach minivan before Kim hitches a ride.
