Rappers love cars. In general, the newer, the faster, and the more expensive, the better. From driving a pimped out SUV riding on 22s to cruising through LA in a drop-top supercar, rappers from Puff Daddy to Snoop Doog are known for their love of big cars, big sound systems and big bling.
That’s no different for Shawn Corey Carter, aka Jay-Z, whose car collection includes some legendary cars, including a Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet, Ferrari F430 Spider, Rolls-Royce Phantom, Maybach Exelero, Bugatti Veyron, and Maybach 62S. Oh, and of course the obligatory Cadillac Escalade… and a Tesla Model S.
According to Gas2 Jay-Z has apparently added the luxury all-electric Model S sedan to his garage, and we guess will now be able to cruise with his homies on zero-emissions.
Of course, in keeping with the rest of his garage, Jay-Z has opted for an all-black car, riding on what looks to be Tesla’s all-black 21 inch turbine wheels. We’d expect too that he’s opted for the P85 performance plus model, which starts at $104,070 with the wheels included.
Add the extra options befitting of a rapper — including the tech package, extended Nappa leather trim, and full-length glass panoramic roof — and we’re thinking Jay-Z would have spent nearer $120,000 on his ride.
Given that most of his other cars have sticker prices more than three times that, we think Jay-Z should be pleased with his latest bargain, not to mention the running costs. Fitted with Supercharger capabilities as standard, Mr. Z should be able to be able to pull up and charge for free at any of the more than 100 Tesla Supercharger sites now operational across the U.S., and joins a growing list of celebrities who have opted to add a super-sexy Tesla to their garage.
Congratulations, Jay-Z. You might have 99 problems, but the pump ain’t one.
