Celebrities with luxury car collections have been well documented, but sometimes we don't realize just how ridiculous some of them actually are. Some celebs spend millions of dollars on cars that they hardly ever drive. They collect luxury cars like you and I collected baseball cards as kids and they keep wanting more. Rappers are well known for their car collections, but other musicians are also in the running for owning some of the most insane car collections. Here are four examples of rappers and musicians that own some awesome car collections.
Funkmaster Flex – This rapper, producer, and DJ may be past his prime but his car collection is still hugely impressive! Flex is big on the classics and collects vintage model cars. He has multiple extra-large garages in his house to keep his collection in and also he gets dirty by working on his cars himself. The Funkmaster can afford to keep his collection in good shape thanks to his $14 million net worth.
Some of the classics that Funkmaster Flex has owned include a 1965 Chevrolet Impala SS 396, a 1967 Ford Galaxie, a 1969 Pontiac GTO Convertible, a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro, a 1969 Chevrolet Nova, a 1969 Charger R/T, a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle, a 1971 Ford Torino GT, and a 1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass. He also has a couple newer models, a 2005 Ford Expedition and a 2006 Ford Mustang.
T-Pain – Rapper T-Pain is big on luxury cars and calls himself a "pure-bred enthusiast." He often buys the same car in multiple years and tends to justify his big money purchases based on engine specs.
