The trend started by Jay-Z and Beyonce and immediately copycatted by Kim Kardashian and Kanye West has now been picked up by Atlanta rapper Future and his girlfriend, singer-songwriter superstar Ciara: matching, ultra-expensive his-n-hers cars. (You’re not a real couple if you don’t have them.)
Future recently picked up a 2014 Bentley Flying Spur ?? $200,000, 6.0L twin-turbocharged W12 engine, 552 HP, 0-60 in 5.2 seconds ? to match Ciara’s recent purchase of a Bentley Continental.
To complete the modern-couple theme, they then turned to social media to share pictures of their purchases.
Of course, this trend isn?t likely to transfer to the hoi-polloi on quite this grand a scale, but matching his-n-hers Smart cars? Adorable. And doable.
