Celebrities making millions of dollars can afford to splurge on some of the most expensive cars in the world.
Have you ever wondered how much your favorite celebrity is worth? What car do they drive? The model and its top speed? How about how much it costs?! Many celebrities you see on TV drive some of the most expensive vehicles in the world. Some celebrities prefer antiques, while others prefer the newest hi-tech speed demons.
Vehicles become monumental status symbols once a world-renowned person lays their hands on them. These people are blessed with the connections and money to get and buy anything they desire; some of them even have their cars custom-built to fit their heart’s desires. And for that, they pay a fortune.
Jay Leno – 1994 McLaren F1 ($12 million)
With the kind of cars Jay Leno keeps in his garage, you wonder if he has a favorite one. Leno is one of the richest comedians, and he has a crazy car collection worth close to $50 million. Among them is this $12 million 1994 McLaren F1.
He probably doesn’t have one favorite ride, but if his garage tragically caught on fire, we assume he would save this McLaren before anything else as only 107 units of the F1 were produced.
