By on September 8, 2015 in ArticlesCelebrity Cars

We have attempted to go to the ends of the earth to bring you the latest news surrounding celebrities and their cars. This week, celebrities have been buying and selling their cars so let's take a closer look.

The Gronk Gets a New Car

While Rob Gronkowski is preparing for the upcoming NFL season and his party cruise, he had time to pick up a new car this week. The Gronk purchased a brand new Mercedes AMG S63 which is fully loaded with 577 horsepower, a rear seat entertainment system, and even a small fridge in the back. A rare splurge for a guy who reportedly hasn't spent a dime of his $16 million career NFL earnings. Gronk famously chooses to only live off money he earns from endorsements.


Bow Wow Gets Bored

Bow Wow is apparently bored with his BMW hybrid and is selling his "spaceship on wheels." He is selling his 2014 BMW i8 for $150 thousand and will replace it with a brand new range Rover Autobiography. The i8 comes with a carbon fiber body, scissor doors, and it can go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 3.6 seconds.


Chris Brown's Lambo on eBay

Chris Brown had a tattoo artist paint the lyrics to Tupac's song "Lord Knows" on the hood and roof of his 2004 Lamborghini Gallardo. He recently decided to sell the car on eBay, but it has not received many bids. The starting price was $89,999 for this Lambo with 16,500 miles on it.


Oprah Spends Some Money

Oprah Winfrey is not known as a big car collector, but she recently purchased a brand new Tesla Model S. She has mostly been seen as a passenger or being chauffeured around town in SUVs, but now has her own electric car.

King Felix Adds to Collection

Seattle Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez is known for his luxury car collection which includes a Range Rover HSE, Mercedes GL550, Maserati Quattroporte, Nissan GT-R, Porsche Cayenne, and Ferrari 458 Italia. This week he added a new Rolls Royce Wraith to his collection. Long live the king!


Ben Affleck's Hellcat

Ben Affleck must have been influenced by starring as Batman and getting to drive the Batmobile. He purchased a brand new car that might give the Batmobile a run for its money, a black 2015 Dodge Challenge SRT Hellcat with 707 horsepower.
