If you're a fan of the rap artist Drake and follow him on Instagram, you might remember some of his #ThrowBackThursday posts. Car lovers will never forget one particular post back in 2012, of Drake and his OVO crew beside a 1998 Chevrolet Malibu with the caption, "First car. First crew. ATF." It's hard to believe that the superstar was once rolling around in a $18,680+/- ride. I think we can all agree that the rap star's circumstances have significantly changed for the better. Now-a-days, you only see him driving in vehicles that are above the $200,000 price tag. Whether it's a friend driving, a family member, or Drake driving it himself... you can find that famous face in one of these rides as well.
Drake has been seen driving around Los Angeles in a white Bentley convertible, but this isn't just any Bentley. The 2011 Continental Supersports Convertible has been called one of the coolest Bentley designs. This ride has 621 horsepower and goes 60 mph (96 kilometers per hour) in 3.9 seconds. The company came out with the 2011 version of the Continental Supersports Convertible as a solution to the older version. The older models are only 2 seaters, while the 2011 model is a 4 seater... offering plenty of room for Drake's crew. It's also a convertible version of the Continental Supersports. Bentley spent a lot of effort making the 2011 Continental Supersports Convertible much lighter in weight than the Continental Supersports. They successfully shed 175 pounds, but then regained the weight by adding backseats and a mechanical roof. This car is equally as beautiful on the inside, with it's 6 litre, twin-turbocharged W12 engine.
When the rapper was seen driving the 2008 Veyron Sang Noir the internet went crazy! Why? Videos were released of Drake sitting in his car with a beautiful woman, but the car alarm kept going off. It's clear in the video, he is confused and can't turn on the vehicle. Aside from that mishap, you can't deny it's a gorgeous car. Hey, if you're going to embarrass yourself in public, might as well do it in the $1.5 million dollar car you own. This beauty has a 16.4 litre, quad-turbocharged W16 engine. Rumours circulated last year that Drake was selling his Bugatti. The exact same version of this car was being sold in Vancouver. There was speculation that the car belonged to Drake, but the sales company did not confirm this.
In August 2013, Drake posted a video of his vehicle being pulled over by police in Toronto. He was driving his custom-ordered Phantom Rolls Royce, rumoured to have cost $800,000.00. The officer pulled him over because the one thing he forgot to have put on this car was a license plate. The Phantom has a 6.7 litre, V12 engine. Drake posted pictures of his Rolls to Instagram on another occasion. This picture created a lot of curiosity for car lovers because it showcased a fiber optic starlight roof. This has only been seen on the Rolls-Royce Phantom which is black... Drake's phantom is white. This leads us to believe that if the rapper wants something modified to his preference... he gets it.
If you are living in the Toronto area, keep your eye out for these three cars. Your favourite rapper could be behind the tinted windows!
