Celebrities sure love to ride in unique vehicles. After all, when you have enough in the bank to buy any car you want, you’re probably saving some cool stuff to turn them into the weirdest rides ever. That’s what many do, from pop stars to athletes. Whether it’s NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal in his custom rides, or pop star Will.i.am in the cars he designs and mods himself, when it comes to artists and celebrities, there’s no shortage of awesome and quirky rides. Characters Cars and celebrities are always an interesting combination, and there are plenty of examples of celebrities getting into trouble while riding.
However, we’re here to take a look at some of the weirdest rides that pop stars, athletes, and other celebrities take around. While there are certainly examples of changes in taste, there are far too many instances where an artist or star has peaked when it comes to their rides. With that said, take a look at some of the weirdest celebrity cars that have people scratching their heads on these rides.
10 Will.i.am’s 1958 Custom Corvette
American rapper Will.i.am has found more than one way to get his creative juices flowing, as he’s invested a lot of time modifying cars and turning them into futuristic projects. His 1959 Chevy Corvette is a case in point. While it’s a Chevy underneath, the car is virtually unrecognizable. Custom for the celebrity was West Coast Customs, who built the car, called the “Willvette.”
The ‘Willvette’ has the interior of a C6, but Will.i.am has made things quite futuristic inside with a massive touchscreen and custom sound system, and on the outside, an equally large grille to match. There is. The design of this custom Corvette is nothing short of polarizing, and while it’s entirely unclear what the artist was really going for, the one thing that’s certain is that it’s a freakin’ ride.
9 Britney Spears’ Pink Hammer
Whether or not what Britney Spears did with her Hummer can be called customization is debatable. Some might even go so far as to call it an outright SUV killer. Like many celebrities of her time, Britney brought home a Hummer and went over the limit with her modifications.
The pop star even ran into trouble with the law when luxury brand Louis Vuitton slapped him with a $300,000 lawsuit for embroidering its logo on the dashboard of his Hummer and featuring it in the music video for his 2004 single. do something.
8 Flo Rida’s gold-plated Bugatti
Flo Rida is known for his rap songs, not his taste in cars. He loves the fast life because Flo Rida bought himself a Bugatti Veyron. However, owning one of the fastest and most exclusive cars in history wasn’t enough to satiate Flo Rida’s appetite as he went ahead and got the fastest car in the world at the time wrapped in gold chrome.
So that even the rims of Bugatti Veyron Flo Rida are made of 24 karat gold. Incidentally, it was Florida-based customizers MetroWrapz who did the design. Flo Rida wanted to distinguish himself from the rest by modifying his car and carving it into the history of the strangest designs, and the rapper succeeded.
7 Justin Bieber’s leopard print Audi R8
Here is a car customization job that can truly be called an animal. Global pop singer Justin Bieber has many exotic cars in his collection and his Audi R8 is one of them. However, while the regular R8 is enough to stop any gear and pay attention, Bieber’s German supercar is perhaps even more of a head-scratcher given that he’s completely wrapped it in leopard print.
Justin took one of the most beautiful high performance sports cars in history with a timeless design and turned it into these monsters of a look. Sure, the R8 has a V10 and makes 500 horsepower, making it a certified beast under the hood, but we’d rather you keep the animalism under the hood, Justin.
6 Shaquille O’Neal Custom Polaris Slingshot
Legendary basketball player and 4-time NBA champion Shaquille O’Neal has a vast collection of cars and most of his rides are customized. A fan of modified wheels, Shaq customized and extended his Polaris Slingshot, adding two extra seats to the trike.
This is what gave birth to “Sling-Shaq” and O’Neill also equipped it with a heavy sound system. Polaris isn’t even the only trick in Shaq’s garage, as the guy also owns a Vanderhall Venice Roadster. However, the three-wheeler only makes 180 horsepower, which is simply not enough with all 7 feet and 320 pounds of shock.
5 Volkswagen Beetle Bug Will.i.am
Say what you will about Will.i.am’s taste in cars but it’s original. Another collaboration between the American rapper and West Coast Customs, “Bug” was built from scratch on a 1958 Beetle. The price is even more ridiculous than it sounds, at $900,000.
The Volkswagen Beetle’s engine comes from a Corvette LS3, and the cabin is quite futuristic, in keeping with all Will.i.am’s work. A single iPad controls all interior functions, from door operation to climate control settings.
4 Ferrari leather game
It’s no coincidence that so many music stars appear on this list. Living in the music world comes with some strange choices and tastes. Take rapper The Game for example. In 2012, on a trip to France, This rapper bought himself a $200,000 Ferrari. Everything is fine… except that his Ferrari is completely leather.
Game has always been a fan of cars, and his collection at the time included a Bentley, a Dodge Charger SRT and a Lamborghini Murcielago, all from 2006. He even added a Range Rover, a Chevy Corvette and a Can-Am. Spyder to its collection, although the Corvette was retaken after three years. However, the leather Ferrari is the strangest ride of all. Boy, that leather cover must keep the game warm in there, even without heating, huh?
3 DeLorean DMC Custom Will.I.Am
Given his futuristic design choices, Will.i.am built this car himself. Of course, this DeLorean might be the most forward-thinking car of them all, considering it’s been back to the future twice (wink, wink). Painted all white, there’s a single brake light covering the back of Will.i.am’s custom DeLorean, and the only black you’ll see is the rubber on the tires, the grille, and the exposed bits on the side and bottom. Is. from the car
It has a GM LS3 E-Rod V8 unit and the interior has been completely redesigned and fitted for maximum comfort and luxury. In addition, it is made entirely of aluminum, making the car relatively light. The rapper reportedly parted with $700,000 for the build, and while it looks decent and futuristic, no one could fathom an actual futuristic Alpha 5 from DeLorean. For our money, we’d say the latter looks a lot better, as Will.i.am’s custom ride is one of his more tastefully designed cars, but it’s weird nonetheless.
2 Outlaw Ferrari Deadmau5 (Purrari)
No one can blame a producer like Deadmau5 for wanting to bring home a Ferrari 458 Italia. We could have even understood a bit of tweaking to make his ride stand out, but for an artist who customized his own Italian horse after being inspired by an internet meme? Deadmau5 custom wrapped his 458 Italia in sky blue, with the internet meme “Nyan Cat” wrapped around the car. He even nicknamed this car “Porari”.
However, the folks at Ferrari never took kindly to this design idea, and hit Deadmau5 with a cease and desist letter. After all, Maranello managers have strict rules about changing their cars. Deadmau5 ended up having to return the car to its original white color.
1 Rolls Royce “Avril” Justin Bieber
West Coast Customs certainly produces cars that cannot be overlooked. Of course, the whole time you’re staring at them, you’re still trying to decide whether or not you like what you’re looking at. Justin Bieber, inspired by a futuristic concept design from Rolls-Royce, wanted to have the same car in his driveway. However, he learned that what he saw was merely a prototype and not even drivable.
This is where West Coast Customs came in and Bieber ordered a car just like that concept for himself. Based on the Rolls-Royce Wraith, this car is a one-of-a-kind car. WCC shortened the Wraith by 8 inches and made it 12 inches wide. One can’t really be sure if this car is tastefully designed or not, considering it’s a modified Rolls-Royce Wraith after all. However, the car named Avril is so strange that you can’t take your eyes off it.
