Making a lot of money comes naturally with the careers of most professional athletes. Ever wanted to know where they spend that money? Look no further than these stunning and outlandish cars.
Hulk Hogan’s Custom Viper
Hulk Hogan hasn't been too relevant for the past decade, but that didn't stop him from customizing this Viper, which happens to look like a more exotic version of Lightning McQueen from "Cars." We can't help but wonder if Owen Wilson's voice is somehow plugged into the navigation system.
Darren McFadden’s Buick
This is not Darren McFadden in this picture, but by the looks of it he might be inside this building having a meeting with The Joker and Barney the Dinosaur on which car he should by next. They obviously helped him pick out this one.
John Cena’s “Supercar”
John Cena could have brought this car in from another planet for all we know. The model was created specifically for Cena and is called 'The InCENArator.' That's not even a joke.
Chris “Birdman” Anderson’s…Truck?
If war ever broke out on his home turf, NBA player Chris Anderson would be fit for duty with this mega-truck. It feels like at any moment this car could yell "Autobots! Roll out!" just before it transforms and runs off into the sunset to fight some Decepticons. Actually this car looks like it could be a Decepticon. Whose side is Birdman even on?
Kobe Bryant’s Lamborghini
Kobe may be struggling in the NBA these past few seasons as he's dealt with injuries, but his car game is still strong.
JR Smith’s Armored Car
J.R. Smith is another NBA star who deemed it necessary to have extra protection while roaming the streets. This thing looks like it could harness a turret gun on top of it. Maybe it can? Needless to say, J.R. and his buddies could all hop in this thing and defend Earth from aliens if that moment ever arose. Thank you for your service sir.
Mario Balotelli’s Camo Bentley
Mario is a professional Italian soccer star. He's not a plumber, and he doesn't hop on Goombas for a living. He scores goals, and this camouflaged Bentley is a totally practical, necessary step to take in any professional soccer player's career. If you are going to spend a fortune on a car, why make it so no one can see it?
LeBron James’ Snowed Out Camaro
Winter may be over in Cleveland, but LeBron's whited out Camaro is gearing up for the playoffs with this sleek design. It kind of looks like a big, delicious marshmallow. We don't think it would taste good though.
Tom Brady’s Audi R8
This Audi R8 is extremely spiffy. You are too, Tom, but you can't just go driving your car into someone's office like this. Maybe he should listen to Giselle next time when she tells him to just use the parking garage. We can see that guy behind Tom calling security now, "Uh..yea Tom Brady literally just drove into our building and won't leave. No…we aren't kidding." In all honestly though, Tom can drive his Audi into our office any day. He just has to pay for any repairs to property damage.
Floyd Mayweather’s Bugatti Collection
Floyd 'Money' Mayweather is the highest paid athlete in professional sports. He has an outlandish car collection, as shown here by his not one, but three Bugattis that he has outside his boxing club. That is roughly $4.5 million in cars just sitting outside.
Bubba Watson’s General Lee
Winning the Masters twice hasn't made Bubba Watson any less fun to watch on the golf course, and his General Lee car is another reason why he's a pretty cool cat. Bubba is also known to have a hovercraft that he uses on the golf course at times. So in case you're wondering, yes, Bubba is living in the future.
Robinson Cano’s Gold Ferrari
We guess if you are going to get a Ferrari, you might as well make it gold, right? Totally. Baseball star Robinson Cano sure knows how to use the money he earned with that new contract. Hopefully he washes this thing once a day so it keeps that golden shine. It would be such a waste if this got dirty and then looked like just another boring Ferrari.
David Beckham’s Porsche
David Beckham is one of the smoothest guys around, and this blacked out Porsche fits his style well. Our favorite part is how he has his soccer number customized on the back of his seats. Hopefully he never needs to sell it some day to someone who hates the number 23. Maybe Michael Jordan will be interested?
Shaq’s Custom ‘Superman’ Escalade
A big man like Shaq needs a big car to make him happy. This customized "Superman" Escalade should fit that bill nicely. He spared no expense to get scissor doors and custom plating on the car, and we can only imagine how much it cost. Regardless, if extravagance and going extremely over-the-top is what Shaq was after, this vehicle is a slam dunk. Stay tuned for more basketball puns.
C.J. Wilson’s McLaren F1
This car cost MLB pitcher C.J. Wilson over $1 million. Custom paint jobs don't always look nice, but this one actually is pretty gorgeous. We can only imagine that the first thing he did was take his new car to the Grand Canyon to have it's own personal photoshoot. He certainly could've picked a day with nicer weather though.
James Harrison’s Smart Car
James Harrison is pretty big, and this car is pretty small. Maybe he thought that it would limit the amount of rides he had to give people? Because no one can fit in this car? Because it's extremely, extremely small? And all his friends are NFL players? So many questions. So few answers.
Roy Halladay’s Hotrod
Roy Halladay may be past his pitching prime, but he seems to really love driving this classic hotrod to practice. He also is one of those guys who loves to wear sunglasses on a cloudy day. Classic Roy!
Felix Hernandez’s Custom Range Rover
Here is another example of flashiness done right. Felix Hernandez is a Cy Young award winning pitcher for the Seattle Mariners, and what better way to celebrate his success than with a customized red Range Rover. He has 'King Felix' etched onto the rims and you can see the crowns on the back of the passenger's seat. Maybe not the most humble setup, but it does look cool.
Russell Westbrook’s Lamborghini
Russell Westbrook is one of the quickest players in the NBA, so of course it's only fitting that he gets a car that's also known for being quick. He's also a point guard who usually dishes out assists to his teammates, so it works out well that his slick Lambo helps to dish him out assists with the ladies. Not like he would need that considering the whole being a nice guy, having a lot of money and being in the NBA thing and all, but still. They make a good team.
LeBron James’ Lamborghini
That's right. LeBron James owns multiple cars. Who would've thought!? This customized Lamborghini looks like it has a camouflaged exterior, we just can't exactly tell which type of camo that is. It looks like you could drive it through a garden and it would fit right in. Maybe it's supposed to look like the color of money? Either way, it certainly cost King James a hefty amount of dough to deck out this whip.
