Remembering the Time When Kanye Gave Kim Kardashian West That Neon Green ‘Truck of My Dreams’
Celebrities are known for outrageous purchases, both for themselves and other people. Billionaire Mark Cuban currently holds a Guinness World Record for purchasing a $40 million private jet online in 1999. And recording artist Soulja Boy received a McLaren GT, priced at over $200,000, as a birthday gift this year. However, Kanye West is known for giving some pretty incredible gifts to Kim Kardashian West during their relationship. One of the more interesting gifts was a neon green Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon, which she famously called “the truck of my dreams.”
Kim Kardashian got some pretty outrageous gifts from soon-to-be ex-husband Kanye West
According to Page Six, over the course of their nine-year relationship, which included six years of marriage, Kanye West gave Kim Kardashian West some pretty amazing and outrageous gifts. In addition to two custom Hermes bags, one designed by artist George Condo and one designed by their daughter, North West, Kardashian received a $1 million check plus a contract to be an owner of Yeezy, West’s clothing line.
Kenny G also serenaded Kardashian for Valentine’s Day in 2019. And for her 40th birthday, West presented her with a hologram of her late father, Robert Kardashian, complete with a message, probably written by West, from beyond the grave.
West did give Kardashian a few more traditional gifts, including flowers and jewelry. For Mother’s Day in 2014, he gave her a wall of flowers. On two different Valentine’s Days, he sent her thousands of roses. As for jewelry, he has given her several Cartier panther bracelets, as well as a bevy of other Cartier bracelets and a diamond choker worth approximately $1 million.
Her engagement ring was a 15-carat ring worth approximately $2 million. And she received an upgraded 20-carat engagement ring worth approximately $4.5 million a few years later. In 2020, he gave her a vintage gold Cartier necklace engraved with a text message he had sent her previously.
In 2018, she got a neon green Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon
Page Six reported that in 2018, West and Kardashian attended the nuptials for 2 Chainz and Kesha Ward in Miami. Kardashian was photographed wearing a form-fitting neon green dress, and they were both photographed getting into a Mercedes-Benz G550 4×4 SUV.
A week later, West gave her a neon green, presumably to match the dress, Mercedes-Benz G550, which she declared “the truck of my dreams.” Her reason for why it was her dream truck was “’cause I was so excited in Miami.”
Unfortunately, their marriage is ending—Kardashian filed for divorce in February 2021. Like most celebrity couples, they have a prenuptial agreement, which details who gets what. So, who is getting that Mercedes? According to Evening Standard, Kardashian is going to get to keep her dream truck. As well as every other gift West ever got her.
Overview of the 2018 Mercedes-Benz G550 4×4 SUV
The 2018 Mercedes-Benz G550 has a 4.0-liter V8 that puts out 416 hp and 450 lb-ft of torque, with four-wheel drive and a seven-speed automatic transmission. It is over seven feet tall, with a ground clearance of an incredible 18 inches. As one would expect from Mercedes-Benz, the interior is fairly luxurious, but the fuel economy is terrible at an estimated 11 combined mpg. According to CarBuzz, about 300 units were produced for distribution in the United States, so it is a pretty rare vehicle.
Even though Kardashian gets to keep the G550 in the divorce, will she actually hold on to it? West also gave her five Mercedes-Maybach SUVs, which she gets to keep as well. So, even if she decides to part with her dream truck, she definitely will not be left without anything to drive.
