Top 15 Hottest Rides Owned by NBA Players

Pro ballers often go big when it comes to their rides. Some drive precision tuned sportscars while others get around in large, luxury vehicles. Some go for customization from bumper to bumper, while others take a drive in a car the way it comes from the dealership. But, what all of these rides have in common is that most of us would be happy to own one. From championship title holding players to retired names that still draw plenty of fans, NBA players pack a lot of star power, and their cars match their celebrity status. Plenty of headroom is a given for these drivers.

15Porsche Panamera Turbo S - Stephen Curry

Porsche Panamera Turbo S - Stephen Curry

There’s no way one of the highest scoring shooters in the NBA would be driving around in a casual, family sedan. Stephen Curry hits the road in one of several amazing rides, but it’s the Porsche Panamera Turbo S that has fans drooling. This ride probably set him back about $180K, but it’s worth every penny. With sleek lines, metallic blue paint and a zero to 60 time of just 3.3 seconds paired with a top speed of 192 mph and you have a car that just might be able to catch up with this scoring genius.

14Ferrari F430 - Lebron James

Ferrari F430 - Lebron James

Lebron James, the highest paid NBA player in the league, can afford to drive pretty much anything. And, he does. He has a huge collection of cars, and the Ferrari F430 deserves a mention. It’s cherry red and stands out from the crowd. Any Ferrari is fun to drive, but the F430 is a real hit with a V8 engine that delivers 490 hp at 8500 rpms. Hitting 60 from a standing stop takes just 4 seconds, and this car is just getting started. It can continue to pour on the speed up to 196 mph.

13Ferrari California - Kevin Durant

Ferrari California - Kevin Durant

As the 10th highest scoring NBA player by playoff points and the position of all-star forward, Kevin Durant has something special. In fact, he’s been building a name for himself since he was drafted in 2007 after just one year of college ball. That secret sauce extends to his choice of ride with the purchase of a Ferrari California. This beast of a supercar pours out 553 hp from the V8 engine and hits all the right notes for performance.

12Audi R8 - Dirk Nowitzki

Audi R8 - Dirk Nowitzki

Dirk Nowitzki, power forward for the Dallas Mavericks, gets around in an Audi R8. While this low slung car looks like it might be a challenge for him to fold into, the performance numbers also say it must be a seriously fun ride. Astonishingly, Audi managed to pack so many features into such an affordable (for NBA players, anyway) car. With 420 hp and a Quattro all-wheel-drive system, it has plenty of power and responsiveness.

11Ferrari F12 Berlinetta - Dwyane Wade

Ferrari F12 Berlinetta - Dwyane Wade

It’s fast, powerful and full bodied to fit a man who stands 6′ 4″ tall. It’s the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. Dwyane Wade owns some incredible cars, and the Berlinetta is a jewel in blood-red. While the introduction of the LaFerrari might put the Berlinetta in second place, 769 hp and acceleration that lets you hit 60 mph in less than three seconds still makes this a car that is a massively powerful ride. Of course, with a $290K price tag, only someone with the wealth of an NBA player can afford to own one.

10Bentley Mulsanne - Dwight Howard

Bentley Mulsanne - Dwight Howard

Not every NBA player gets behind the wheel of a low slung sports car. Dwight Howard, a center for the Grizzlies, spent $300K on his Bentley Mulsanne. The customizable interior features plenty of natural wood paneling, while the accessories are all about luxury. From the onboard infotainment system to the 4G connectivity that follows the car, the Mulsanne is a car that offers serious comfort and plenty of room to stretch out and enjoy the ride, even when you’re a 6′ 11″ basketball player.

9Lamborghini Aventador - Kobe Bryant

Lamborghini Aventador - Kobe Bryant

Though he retired in 2016, Kobe Bryant remains a living legend from his 20-year career with the LA Lakers. That legend lives on with his love of great cars, and the Lamborghini Aventador is just one of his amazing vehicles. With an estimated price tag of $387K, it’s no surprise that a five-time championship winner owns this car. It’s wide, low to the ground and packs plenty of power under the hood with a V12 engine and 691 hp.

8Tesla Model S - Blake Griffin

Tesla Model S - Blake Griffin

Blake Griffin breaks the mold with his vehicle of choice – a Tesla Model S. This all-electric car can give any gas guzzler a run for its money with a 0 to 60 time of over 3 seconds – 3.1 seconds to be exact. Of course, its top speed isn’t anything to write home about at 155 mph, but the Tesla Model S represents a new class of cars with zero emissions. Add in plenty of trunk space, and you have a commuter vehicle where it’s easy to keep court gear in the front or rear trunk.

7Bentley Continental Flying Spur - Michael Beasley

Bentley Continental Flying Spur - Michael Beasley

Take a luxury sedan and add a massive, twin-turbocharged engine, an 8-speed transmission and a minimum of 500 hp and you have the Bentley Continental Flying Spur at a glance. The interior has the luxury and comfort this iconic British brand is known for, along with plenty of power and performance to go head to head with racier models. Michael Beasley, a former player for the Miami Heat, has been seen driving everything from a Porsche 911 to a Range Rover, but his car of choice is the Flying Spur.

6Mercedes Benz G63 - Demar DeRozan

Mercedes Benz G63 - Demar DeRozan

Demar DeRozan overcame a childhood full of poverty and violence to make good as a professional basketball player. Currently, a shooting guard for the Toronto Raptors, he’s also the proud owner of a massively comfortable – and just massive – Mercedes Benz G63. Often called G-wagons, these SUVs combine power and comfort for a basketball player that needs the extra clearance. His customized ride comes in all black with matching black rims, making this massive vehicle a seriously intimidating presence on the road.

5Chevrolet Camaro SS - James Harden

Chevrolet Camaro SS - James Harden

James Harden is the undisputed king of scoring in the NBA. Off the court, he is the proud owner of an electric yellow Chevrolet Camaro SS with black racing stripes. Under the hood is a 6.2-L LT1 V8 engine which delivers serious horsepower and enough acceleration to make even supercar manufacturers take notice. Torque Vectoring controls braking to increase a driver’s ability to drift through turns, making it a fun ride with serious agility. If you’re looking for a great addition to the American muscle car lineup, look no further.

4Knight XV - Dwight Howard

Knight XV - Dwight Howard

Dwight Howard is known for his cars. His Bentley Mulsanne is one of the leading luxury sedans on the market, but sometimes you just want to own your space. With the Knight XV, Dwight Howard does exactly that. He owns plenty of space with this all black and intimidating ride. There are only 100 of these beasts on the road, and it almost looks like a tank or other military vehicle. Imposing is certainly one way to describe both the Knight XV and its owner, Dwight Howard.

3Mercedes Benz SLR McLaren - Dwyane Wade

Mercedes Benz SLR McLaren - Dwyane Wade

Take a little nostalgia and a lot of cutting edge automotive technology, and you’ve got the Mercedes Benz SLR McLaren. The gullwing doors avoid dings and give it futuristic appeal, while the power under the hood makes the SLR McLaren one of the best cars in Dwyane Wade’s garage. Though with a Porsche, McLaren, Benz, and Ferrari to choose from, there’s really no bad choice. This particular beauty features 650 horsepower and a surprisingly light frame with a total curb weight of just 3,850-lbs.

2Maybach 57S - LeBron James

Maybach 57S - LeBron James

LeBron James has enough time in the spotlight to know what he likes and to be able to afford it. The Maybach 57S delivers plenty of power and comfort for a player often referred to as the face of the NBA. Its sedan body offers plenty of headroom, and the engine is a twin turbo, 5.5L V8 with at least 543 hp and a 5-speed automatic transmission. What makes the Maybach so unique, aside from the estimated $415K price tag, is the relatively fast acceleration offered in such a massive, full-size car.

1Bugatti Veyron - Derrick Rose

Bugatti Veyron - Derrick Rose

Derrick Rose, an NBA MVP for the 2010-11 season, is also known for his injuries. Over eight seasons, he’s missed more than 250 games. Hopefully, his Bugatti Veyron won’t need to spend similar time in the shop. And, with a $1.7M price tag, it’s likely to be tearing up the asphalt for a number of years. This precision-tuned sportscar is the vehicle of choice for famous athletes around the world, including Tom Brady and Roberto Carlos.
