Considering that they both became famous for living in the limelight, in lieu of talent, it’s possible that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian were destined to be together. Love 'em or hate 'em it can’t be denied they are the definition of a Hollywood power couple. That power isn’t just in their clout though. Both are confirmed motorheads, and they have the rides to prove it. While no one is sure how many vehicles they have stashed around the globe, there are enough horses in their California stable to make any gearhead drool with envy.

As improbable as it may seem Kanye and Kim are parents and are seen out with their kids quite often. For family time, they own several of the prerequisite Escalades that every Hollywood couple must have, but they also sport a matched pair of Porsche Panamera’s and a stunning Mercedes Maybach that reportedly set them back over 400k. These may not be the most exciting cars in their collection, but they beat the hell out of the average family station wagon.
Less you think that it is only Kanye who loves sleek rides; this car was Kim’s before her, and the rapper ever hooked up. In production from 2011 to 2015, the 458 Italia was one of Ferrari's longest-running lines. Kim’s Spyder is one of the special edition models that the company put out. It is a hardtop convertible with a roof that will retract in under 14 seconds at the push of a button.
Further proof that Kim brought more to the marriage than her obvious assets is her personal Rolls-Royce Phantom. Considered one of the ultimate Hollywood status symbols this beauty has a 563 hp V12 engine hooked to an 8-speed automatic transmission. With a base price of $450,000 it should come as no surprise, these cars are considered some of the finest riding vehicles on the market.
Just to show that they can be just as practical as average millionaires and don’t always have to have the very top of the line, the west family bought a Ghost to keep their Phantom company on lonely nights. With a base price of only $200,000, the ghost isn’t quite as luxurious as its more expensive sibling. That is of course, until it is bought by a Kardashian and given a complete designer makeover. Just how much was spent to bring this Rolls up to Kim’s standards has never been disclosed.
One of the coolest and rarest rides in the West stable of noble steeds is a Mercedes SLR that Kanye has had since his Amber Rose days. Currently valued at over $700,000, this sweet little ride features a 5.4-liter supercharged V8 engine hooked to a 5-speed automatic transmission. More than just a pretty face this distinctive car that was only produced for seven years boasts 3.4 second 0-to-60 times and has a top speed just shy of 210 mph.
I can hear you going “what the hell” all the way from here, but yes a common 2002 Lexus GS holds a very special place in Kanye’s heart and probably always will. It is the car he was driving in 2002 when he literally went “Through the Wire” and suffered the injuries that lead to him having to record his breakout album with his jaws wired shut. If it hadn’t been for that car and that wreck Kanye wouldn’t be the star he is today.
Kanye and Kim are nothing if not status conscious, and you simply can not travel in their circles and not have at least one Bentley in your car collection. Even though the $270,000 coup came loaded with tons of luxury and safety features along with self-designed custom touches, it is supposedly the least driven of all their cars. Imagine a Bentley being your ride of last resort.
Kanye’s first generation Gallardo came fresh from the factory with a 5.0-liter V-10 engine producing 542 hp. It is not clear whether he opted for the 6-speed E-gear automatic transmission or the 6-speed manual, but in a worst-case scenario, the car has a top end of 202 mph and can go 0-60 in 3.4 seconds. Other than his SLR and Kim, of course, this seems to be his favorite ride and the car he is most often seen driving.
It seems that some vehicles just aren’t meant to be owned by some people, and Kanye and Kims Lamborghini Aventador seems to be one of those cases. It almost as if the $750,000 car would rather be in the body shop than their garage. Since Kim gave it to her hubby as a present, it has been in the news multiple times for having freak accidents. Gates cycle faster than they should and bang into it. Garage doors close on it for no reason. For what it costs to have a Lambo repaired they might be money ahead just to buy a new one.
With a 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 engine producing 577 hp and 0-60 times around 4.4 seconds, the G63 is not an SUV designed for the masses. A price tag of $143,795 for a stripped down model also puts it out of most people’s reach. But, if your Kanye West and can pick one up for less than you’re wife usually pays for a dress why not own at least one or two of what many consider the most luxurious SUVs on the market.
One of the first supercars that Kanye bought when he hit the big time was an Aston Martin DB9, and he still loves it today. It is probably the closest thing he has to a daily driver. With its hardwood accents, hand-stitched leather appointments, simple lines and that signature roar that can only come from a naturally aspirated V-12 it is easy to understand why it appeals to both the fashion designer and music lover in him. People close to the man himself say he is waiting for the DB9’s successor to be introduced.
Kim Kardashian has always had a thing for Italian designers, and it appears it's not just in clothes but extends to cars as well. One of her first supercars also serves to let us know just what a motorhead she really is. While most of the cars on our list are commonly known not that many people would recognize much less buy a Maserati 4200GT. While its naturally aspirated, fuel injected V-8 only produces only 385 hp and its top speed is only 177 mph it does have that throaty rumble that makes lady gearheads cream. Kim liked it so much she bought its successor when it was introduced.
This is the car that Kim decided should replace her beloved Maserati Coupe. It has a 4.7-liter V8 engine that can produce 444 hp and 380lb-ft of torque. The 2018 version of the GranTurismo starts at $134,000, and the entire interior, including the dashboard, is covered in soft leather. It would appear that Kanye might not be as big a Masti fan as his wife since he has never been photographed with one.
If you have ever heard of much less seen a Red Diamond we would be more than a little surprised the Latvian built vehicles have a base price of $1.25 million. They are gold plated, have bullet-proof windows, and are designed to withstand running over landmines and grenade attacks. As a bonus feature, they come with three bottles of the worlds most expensive vodka. By the by Kim and Kanye don’t own one of these street legal tanks. They bought a matching set.
It may seem kind of ho-hum, but the HSE is actually one of Kim’s favorite rides, and she has often been seen driving it when running errands around L.A. She supposedly likes the Rovers luxurious interior and state of the art safety features. With a 3.0-liter V6 engine that produces 254 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque, it isn’t going to win any races but what do you expect for only $113,000
Few cars in the world match Kanye’s ego, but the Bugatti Veyron may just succeed. It can go from 0 to 60 in 2.4 seconds, has a top speed of 267 mph and cost $2.4 million back in 2014 when they were still being produced. Considering they are already considered collectors cars and their value is steadily climbing it is no surprise that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian rarely take this baby out of the garage.
