When it comes to celebrity cars, many of our favorite stars have vehicles that cost more than what most of us bank in a decade. But it’s not all flash as some like Leonardo DiCaprio scored themselves a luxury speedster that isn’t so bad for the planet.

With this list of the most expensive celebrity cars, our subjects earned their money in a cornucopia of genres and professions. There are actors and actresses, musicians — whose names alone transcend singing — plus reality stars (looks like those non-scripted TV shows pay quite well!), models, legendary sports stars and, of course, socialites and heiresses. (Stayed at a Hilton Hotel? You’ve helped Paris Hilton work her way into a candy apple red luxury car that debuted an historic feature!)

Who was found behind the wheel of some of the most expensive cars on the planet? She was a 2020 Super Bowl halftime performer who finally started driving after years of leaving it to someone else — Jennifer Lopez

Leonardo DiCaprio

Car: Fisker Karma

Price: $100,000

Anyone who has followed the career of Leo will hardly be surprised by his choice of luxury automobile. It may not be the most expensive of the bunch, but it was the most environmentally friendly high-end car for the celeb set. In a town where what you drive is of the utmost importance, it figures that the Oscar-winning actor was driving an eco-friendly sports car! Leo’s plug-in hybrid Fisker Karma set him back a number in the low six figures, which is nothing compared to the millions some celebs have shelled out for their wheels. The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood actor bought local — Fisker Automotive was a start-up based in Anaheim, California, not far from his Hollywood home. The connection doesn’t stop with his purchase. “DiCaprio will work closely with marketing and promotional initiatives to bring attention to sustainability and environmental issues around the world,” Fisker Automotive reported in a press release. “In turn, Fisker will support the work of the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation.” It’s a win-win! Sadly, the company fell on hard times — including filing for bankruptcy in 2014 (as reported by the LA Times) and is trying to come back. Look for it out there with the new name Karma Revero.

J. Lo had one incredible 2019. The Hustlers star has propelled herself into stardom in a multitude of arenas — acting, singing and fashion. One aspect of life that she hadn’t been doing all that much of was driving. Her fiancé, Alex Rodriguez, decided to do something about it. With the help of her twins and his two girls, A-Rod surprised the Jenny From the Block singer with an iconic German sports car designer’s most beautiful cars: a Porsche 911 Carrera GTS, as reported in Radar Online. The former ballplayer posted a video of her receiving the car. It was impossible to miss the joy in her voice when she shouted, “It’s beautiful! I’ve never driven a car like that!”

Justin owns a Lamborghini, a Ferrari California and the pitching sensation has his own Benz SLS AMG! The happy couple certainly have their share of fancy automobiles.

It is fitting that the quintessential California girl Paris Hilton owns a Ferrari California. The heiress races (as much as one can with all that gridlock!) around the City of Angels in a Ferrari California, which costs just north of a quarter of a million bucks. The red speedster reportedly was purchased by the hotel heiress on a Black Friday, per Torque News. Most of us look for electronics or holiday gifts on that major shopping day after Thanksgiving. But Paris looked into a Ferrari for her Black Friday craziness! The automobile was the first in the biz to have the technology which shuts off your car after an extended idle. It also has an envelope-pushing folding metal roof. Paris has a long history of fancy cars.

Car: Bugatti Chiron

Price: $3 million

For many, spending millions for a piece of transportation can seem like insanity. But if you’re Kylie Jenner, shelling out $3 million for a Bugatti Chiron is just another purchase.

Tom Cruise

Car: Bugatti Veyron

Price: $3 million

Superstar Tom Cruise has been no stranger to being behind the wheel of some fierce and expensive cars on the big screen. That might have served as perfect “research” in terms of what car he would purchase. Just think about what he’s driven in the Mission Impossible franchise alone. Tom has raced in everything from a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren in Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol to a Lamborghini Gallardo in Mission: Impossible 3. When the time came to purchase a new luxury sports car for himself, the adrenaline junkie (who does most of his own stunts) turned to France for their Bugatti Veyron and its three-million dollar price tag. Not that anyone who purchases a Veyron cares or even haggles over an issue like this, but just an oil change alone on a Bugatti will set you back between $20,000 to $25,000.
