We all know that musicians like living their life to the fullest. Thanks to their talent, popularity, and sometimes, side businesses, some artists are able to buy luxurious mansions and build huge car collections.
Given their wealth, most musicians don’t limit themselves to just one vehicle. That’s how they get to these amazing car collections that others only dream of.
Whether you’re curious or you just need some inspiration to help you work towards your dream, we prepared a list of 10 musicians who managed to build huge car collections. Let’s get into it!

In her collection, she has the Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR, but she also has some vans, minivans, SUVs, and others.

Through his music, he was able to earn a lot of money, which he later used for purchasing multiple vehicles among other things. As such, he managed to build a huge car collection. On top of owning some great cars, he also customizes some of them. This is how he customized his 1967 Pontiac Parisienne, for example.

- Kanye West

An Aston Martin DB9 and Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren are only some examples from his collection.
- Eric Clapton

- Wyclef Jean
The rapper Wyclef Jean loves collecting cars, and he definitely knows how to pick his models. Some of the cars he owns include a Bentley Arnage, Pagani Zonda C12, and McLaren F1.

If you love any of these musicians, you may become inspired to buy your own car, perhaps even one of the models they own. You just have to make sure you don’t end up buying a lemon.
Lemon cars will give you a lot of trouble and you’ll have to spend time bringing them in for reparations that will be unsuccessful. Luckily, if you live in California like some of the celebrities on this list, you can hire a California lemon attorney, who will advise you and help you get compensation for the defective car you’ve bought.
