One of the biggest status symbols in the music world is how many cars someone owns. Many rappers aren’t even sure how many they own.
Eminem is reported to have several garages and homes with cars, but at best estimate, he owns at least 12 rare and expensive cars. This includes vintage cars, rare builds, and tricked out releases.
While this may not rival Jay Leno or some other car enthusiasts, his collection will likely continue to grow. He seems to enjoy sports cars and cars that can go extremely fast.
His Most Used Car Is His Cadillac Escalade
Eminem is notoriously private, going months without being seen in the public. However, when he is spotted, it is often in his Cadillac Escalade. The black car is a favorite for celebrities because it sits up off the ground, offers some great perks, and can easily blend in with other cars on the road.
He Has A Customized Lambo Worth Nearly $700,000
Many celebrities have Lamborghinis, but that wasn’t enough for Eminem. His Lamborghini Aventador was completely customized for his taste. Reaching top speeds of 250 km/h, it is one of the fastest cars made for the road. Off the lot, it costs $400,000.
Eminem further had the car personalized for another $300,000.
He Loves Muscle Cars
The rap star is also a huge fan of muscle cars, as they feature in many of his photoshoots and album covers. In particular, he has a fondness for the Dodge Super Bee, which was a muscle car produced between 1968 and 1971. He has a 1970 Dodge Super Bee.
This was the car that he used to pose for a rare photoshoot. He changed the oil in the car (proving that he can do his own maintenance). His car does feature the “bumblebee wing” bumper.
He’s In A Feud With Ford
While there are a few Ford cars in Eminem’s garage, the rapper is actually in a feud with the company. Eminem and the company were in negotiations to include one of their unreleased sedans in a music video back in 2005. However, once the title and lyrics of the song were revealed, Ford pulled out of the deal.
The company was afraid that his lyrics would reflect badly on the brand.
He Writes His Cars Into His Songs
Eminem writes about many topics, including his cars. The rapper owns a high-performance Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0, which was originally designed for racing. It is one of the fastest vehicles in his garage, and it has been immortalized in his song “Love Me.”
He mentions it in the lyrics, “911 Porsche same color as cranberry sauce.”
He Has A James Bond Car
Many little boys dream of owning the same car as James Bond, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that he owns an Aston Martin V8 Vantage. This car is completely juiced up, with a twin-turbo 4-liter V8 engine that can pump out 503 horsepower through the eight-speed automatic.
The car can reach top speeds of 205 mph and is actually one of the cheapest cars in his garage, with a starting price of $187,000. He likely paid much more as his is fully tricked out and personalized.
He Sold A Car To A 12-Year-Old
Eminem’s love of muscle cars was more apparent at the start of his career when he purchased a Ford Mustang GT. He quickly upgraded to other cars and sold his purple Mustang on eBay. It was purchased by a 12-year-old heiress. Eventually, it was put back up on eBay.
Eminem is an avid car buff and continues to make timeless purchases to show off and to drive. It is likely that his collection will continue to grow over time. The rapper likely owns many more cars, as he is rumored to have quite the vintage collection as well.
