Bieber was presented with a chromed Fisker Karma by his manager as a birthday present. This vehicle is worth well over $100k, so 10% really does go a long way in managing Justin Bieber.

Rolls Royce had reduced the vehicle's weight by more than 200 pounds, increased its compression rate, and added wider front seats before releasing Silver Cloud II.
This car's 0-60 mph speed might seem incredibly slow to you. Although the Rolls Royce of Beyonce is slower than some other cars on this list it can still reach 0-60 mph in a reasonable ten seconds. This is thanks to its 6.2-liter engine.
The whitewall tires on this Rolls Royce are straight out of a classic car magazine. The car's interior is a beautiful blue color that blends seamlessly with its navy roof. Beyonce was seen riding in this vintage car with its top-down in The Hamptons, and bravely walking through New York City.

Eric Clapton, guitarist extraordinaire, owns one of the most beautiful Ferraris. Clapton spent $4.7 million to have Ferrari build him a special car called the SP12 EC. The design of this bespoke Ferrari was partly inspired by the Berlinetta Boxers.
The 512 BB-style bodywork of this car features new bumpers, a vintage rear axle, and a wide-stretching grille. The SP12 EPC's performance is enhanced by a new exhaust system. Clapton's original interior reflects his nuanced talent.
Original plans for the SP12 were to have a V12 engine, according to the Cream guitarist. Clapton settled for a V8 with 570 horsepower. Ferrari couldn't grant the request because the Ferrari 458 chassis was not capable of accommodating the larger engine unit.
The car's initials represent Eric Patrick Clapton's "Special Project 12 Eric Patrick Clapton", as Ferrari created this car in the artist's vision. Clapton's taste led to the SP12 EPC featuring an 80s-inspired wedge shape, two-tone color, and black rocker panels inspired by 512BB.

According to reports, Will.I.Am spent $900,000. Customizing the coupe. The singer wanted the car to be on his Superbowl Halftime Show stage, so he offered $100,000 to accelerate the manufacturing process. The car's production was completed by West Coast Customs after four years.

1.) How Much Did Jay-Z's Maybach Excelero Cost?
Jay-Z's Maybach Exelero, which costs $8 million, is our #1 pick. The Maybach has a front extension that is reminiscent of a vintage Batmobile, and a body design that was designed to highlight a particular type of German tire.
This car is fast, it's true. This car can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds thanks to its 5.9-liter twin-turbocharged V12 motor. This Maybach produces 700 horsepower at 5,000 rpm, while 752 lb-ft can be generated at 2,500 rpm.
Only 12 Maybach Exelero's are known to exist in the entire world. Fulda Carat Exelero wheels of 23 inches, front and back disc brakes, red harness-style seatbelts, and front and rear disc brakes are all custom elements.
Jay-Z does not drive this Maybach Exelero for its fuel efficiency. The Maybach Exelero can only get 2.5 miles per gallon. This is probably not Hova's daily driver.
