Love him or hate him, Eminem – otherwise known as Marshall Mathers III or Slim Shady – is one of the most famous rappers in the world and has been around for what now feels like forever.
Over the years, Eminem has become one of the most successful rappers to have ever graced the stage, with his music and lyrics earning the respect of many musicians as a result. Throughout his career, Eminem has racked up award after award, something that has also led to lots of money, big mansions, and – you guessed it – flashy cars.
Eminem has quite the car collection, a collection that could rival most car enthusiasts and make a lot of people jealous. Let's take a look at 15 facts about Eminem's impressive car collection.
15. He Spent Around $700,000 On A Customized Lamborghini
Let's face it, every celebrity these days is going to have a Lamborghini Aventador in the garage; it’s a car that’s just too good to say no to. The car is probably one of the most exciting cars in the world to drive and can make you feel – albeit for a brief moment – like a Formula 1 racing driver.
The car can reach speeds of 100km/h in just a couple of seconds with a top speed of 350km/h. It's a fast one all right. The car isn't cheap and averages at about $400,000. However, it was revealed that Eminem not only purchased the car but also had it modified to how he wanted it, raising the price to a whopping $700,000.
14. He Has The Same Car As Tamara Ecclestone
If anybody is going to get their hands on a rare Ferrari 599 GTO, it's going to be the daughter of Formula 1 chief executive, Bernie Ecclestone. Tamara Ecclestone, as well as Eminem, are just two of 599 people to own the beloved vehicles.
It’s no secret that Eminem likes Ferraris, especially when you look at his collection. The car is also said to be the fastest road-legal car in the world, with a speed of 0-100kim/h in just under 3.3 seconds.
13. His Ferrari 430 Scuderia Proves He's A "REAL" Ferrari Fan
The Ferrari 430 Scuderia isn't your average celebrity vehicle, with Eminem just one of a few famous faces to own the car. In fact, the former Formula 1 racer, Michael Schumacher, was heavily involved in the making of the automobile, hence why the final product was so wonderful.
As you would expect, the car is ridiculously fast, with a top speed of 310 km/h). The Scuderia isn't for showing off your wealth, but instead designed for real motor enthusiasts and fans of Ferrari.
12. He Mentions His Porsche 911 Turbo In His Music
The Porsche 911 Turbo is a legendary car in its own right. Therefore, it seems only obvious that car enthusiasts would have one in their collection.
Eminem has one and it’s his fourth Porsche, with the rapper seemingly a fan of the luxury car brand. However, it is the Turbo that is often regarded as one of the best Porsches ever made, mostly due to its top speed of 320km/h.
Eminem loves Porsche so much that he even mentions the manufacturing brand in his music, with the song, "W.T.P" poking fun at his former life, "Pull up the club in a Pinto like it's a Porsche. Garage bag on one of the windows, spray-painted doors."
11. He Did A Photo Shoot With The Dodge Super Bee
The Dodge Super Bee was a muscle car produced between 1968 and 1971. However, in 2007, the car was surprisingly resurrected until 2013. The 8 Mile star often shows his love for classic cars and has a 1970 Dodge Super Bee to prove it.
In fact, Eminem even posed for a rare photoshoot with the car, with photographers snapping him while he changed the oil. Interestingly, the car is also noted for its twin-looped front bumper that is often referred to as a "bumblebee wing."
10. He Has A McLaren MP4-12C Just Sitting In His Garage
The McLaren MP4-12C has a lot of good things going for it, but it's the 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that comes out on top. In fact, the car is so good that it's won numerous awards over the last few years, including the prestigious, "Car of the Year" and "Best Supercar" in 2012.
Supposedly, Eminem has his very own McLaren MP4-12C that's just sitting in his garage collecting dust. Although to be fair, it's not really a car to drive to the grocery store.
9. He Has Beef With Ford
Eminem and Ford have a bit of a checkered past, mostly down to the fact that Ford went back on a promise to include a Ford Fusion in one of his music videos after Eminem had publicly humiliated some famous celebrities. However, the bad blood hasn't stopped Eminem from purchasing one of their most beloved vehicles, the Ford GT.
For some reason, the Ford GT often gets overlooked when it comes to treating it like a sports car, with Lamborghini, Ferrari and Bugatti usually getting all the attention. However, the Ford GT is just as good and, like most sports cars, can reach 100km/hr in just over three seconds.
8. He Refers To His Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 In His Songs
It is probably safe to say that Eminem likes Porsches just as much as he likes Ferraris. The Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 is a high-performance vehicle that was originally designed for racing. As expected, the car is exceptionally fast with a top speed of 311km/h and 97km/h in just under 3.5 seconds. In fact, in the song "Love Me" Eminem mentions the vehicle with the line, "911 Porsche same color as cranberry sauce."
7. He Doesn't Always Go Big
What's a car collection without the Audi R8 Spyder? Yes, Eminem currently owns an Audi R8 Spyder, a car that costs over $200,000, while also being a car that doesn't scream glamorous. That's right, even though it's expensive it is still rather laid-back when compared to a Lamborghini. However, in just 3 seconds the car can reach 99km/h, so it's not that laid-back.
6. His Everyday Car Of Choice Is The Cadillac Escalade
Eminem is probably spotted in his Cadilac Escalade the most when it comes to driving his cars, with the rapper often photographed getting in and out of the ageless beauty. The Escalade is a wonder of a car and has a luxurious V8 engine to prove it. Plus, to make things that much better, the car has a 10-speed automatic transmission and is able to give those bigger and better cars a run for their money.
5. He Loves Ferrari
Eminem is a huge fan of the Ferrari brand and he has the automobiles to prove it. The Ferrari 575, which was only available for four years, is one of the rarest cars in Eminem's garage. In fact, just 2,000 units were ever produced, with a mere 177 built with manual transmission. However, the best thing about it? The monstrous 5.7-liter 12 cylinder engine of course.
4. He Owns An Extremely Rare Porsche Carrera GT
You can say whatever you want about Eminem's music, but there is no denying he has great taste in cars. The Porsche Carrera GT is one of the best sports cars in the world and a firm favorite among musicians and celebrities – well, those who can afford it anyway. Sadly, the car was only available for a mere four years, with just 1,270 units ever produced.
3. He's Got A James Bond Aston Martin V8 Vantage
The Aston Martin brand is one of the most famous brands in the world, something that is mostly related to James Bond and his penchant for nice cars. The V8 Vantage is one of the nicest cars to have ever come out of the Aston Martin garage, mostly due to the twin-turbo V8 engine that reaches a whopping 100km in just over three seconds. Now that's what you want from a car that usually belongs to 007.
2. He Joined The Hummer H2 Crew
Back in the day, the Hummer was a big deal to those in the music industry, with pop stars, rappers, and country fans all seemingly getting in on the act. However, after a while, the world realized that Hummers were actually humungous gas guzzlers and were not only expensive to run but they were also terrible for the environment. Eminem swiftly got rid of his, and it now stands on display in all its yellow glory.
1. His Bentley Continental GT Is Purely For Aesthetics
The Bentley Continental is the epitome of luxury, and a step away from the classic sports car. In fact, the Bentley Continental is probably Eminem's only car that he owns solely based on looks.
The Bentley has undergone a number of changes over the years, with the latest model sporting an enhance in engine power to 528 PS (388 kW; 521 hp) at 6,000 rpm, and 680 N⋅m (502 lb⋅ft) of torque at 1,700 rpm.
