While the average consumer can only afford a car or two, the affluent are able to collect cars. Celebrities, entrepreneurs, and high-earning individuals have used their wealth to amass amazing car collections. Rapper Rick Ross is a long-time auto enthusiast with the means to get just about any car he wants. The celeb’s collection ranges from old-school Chevrolets to new Rolls-Royces.
Rick Ross: Rapper, mogul, auto enthusiast
Rapper, entertainer, record label CEO, and mogul Rick Ross does everything big. The celebrity also happens to be a huge auto enthusiast. The rapper once worked at a car wash. Now he can afford a few car lots.
Ross founded Maybach Music Group in 2009, hinting at his love for luxury vehicles. He made a song called “Purple Lamborghini” with American DJ Skrillex. He even jokingly nicknamed himself the “Ferrari fat boy” commenting that several of the sports cars he owns aren’t built for his large stature. Rick Ross has larger ambitions than most, and his estate and car collection reflect those ambitions.
The biggest car collection?
Rick Ross marketed himself as the biggest boss in many song lyrics, and his accolades back up his claim. Ross owns the largest mansion in Georgia. What do you do after you already own the biggest mansion in your state? You make sure you also have one of the biggest car collections in the world.
Rick Ross claimed to own over 100 vehicles. Despite naming his record label, Maybach Music Group, Ross actually has a great appreciation for classic American cars. Ross owns at least one custom 1960’s Chevrolet Impala and 1973 Impala. He also owns Rolls-Royce Wraiths. He owns a few Mercedes-Benz Maybachs to stay on-brand. Ross’ car collection is far more extensive than the standard multimillionaire’s few classics, sports cars, and supercars.
Rick Ross has a love for classic cars
The rapper and entrepreneur has a classic car collection that is so large that it’s hard to imagine it stored in one location. According to Car and Driver, Rick Ross recently showed off his vintage car collection on Instagram, and it seemed endless. The video featured over 12 rare vehicles and was just the tip of the iceberg.
Rick Ross displayed multiple second-generation Chevrolet Bel Airs. The video also included some old-school trucks like the 1980s Chevrolet C/K. Ross is even known amongst car enthusiasts and was recently interviewed by Jay Leno regarding his custom red 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air. He has come a long way from the car wash.
The rapper’s taste ranges from old-school Chevys to the latest Maybachs, Rolls-Royces, and other luxury vehicles. Rick Ross has a car collection to match his huge multimillion-dollar estate. This celebrity may just live up to his promise of being the biggest boss we’ve seen thus far. Hopefully, one day, the rapper will show his entire car collection to the world. Until then, we’ll have to enjoy the quick glimpses via social media and cameos.
