Post Malone Once Totaled His Rolls-Royce and Immediately Bought Another One
Legendary recording artist Post Malone is no stranger to exotic cars. In his collection, he’s had everything ranging from a humble WRX to the likes of a Bugatti Chiron and a new Ford GT. However, a few short years ago, Posty was having a rough time and, unfortunately, got into an accident behind the wheel of his Rolls-Royce.
Out with the Wraith, in with the Phantom
Admittedly, this story is a few years old at this point. However, it’s always a fun conversation piece whenever the topics of cars and Post Malone cross. So, here’s a fun story to add to that repertoire if you happen to run into that exact situation.
According to The Drive, this was during a bit of an interesting patch during Malone’s life. Within short succession, his airplane had an issue with its landing gear, and they were forced to make an emergency landing; armed robbers broke into his old house asking where he was (listen to the song “Paranoid” off the album “Beerbongs & Bentleys”), and then his Rolls Royce got hit by a Kia the same night he lost his friend Mac Miller to a drug overdose.
Needless to say, that’s a big dose of rough circumstances back to back. So, if ever there was a time for the “treat yourself” mindset to come out, it was then and there. So, Posty took the Kia hit in stride and immediately went out and bought a Rolls Royce Phantom. Comparatively, the Phantom costs about $100,000 more new. Chump change, right?
To quote Eazy E: “’ll throw it in the gutter and go buy another.” Of course, Eazy E was referring to a 1964 Impala and not a Rolls Royce. Semantics, right?
Post Malone has quite a fascination with exotic cars
We’ve touched on Post Malone’s epic car collection here on MotorBiscuit in the past. Though, it seems to be ever-shifting and evolving. Automotive YouTube staple The Stradman wound up buying a Lamborghini Urus from him. In addition, he also stored Posty’s McLaren Senna while it was up for sale.
A few years ago, Malone seemed to be clearing house on his car collection. However, it’s safe to assume that he’s still retaining some pretty cool cars.
Overall, there’s just something entertaining about the concept of crashing a car that costs as much as a house and immediately buying another one. Why wait for the insurance? They’re just going to slow you down. Most of us will likely never be in that position, but if you had that kind of money flowing, you’d probably do the same thing!
