With contracts that can average up to twenty million dollars a year, these NFL all-stars have some pretty impressive bank accounts. Of course, having that kind of cash, one has to get the wheels to match. And these football players sure do deliver.
From powerhouse Hummers to vicious Ferraris, NFL players have some seriously awesome cars. Well, most of the time, there are those who keep it pretty sensible. Curious to see who’s behind what wheels? Check out all of your favorite NFL stars and what they drive.
Cam Newton — Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, Estimated Price $320K
Cam Newton strikes back with another supercar. As if one wasn't enough, Newtown also has this beast of Ferrari in his garage. This powerhouse has over 700 bhp of output from its 6.3L naturally-aspirated V12 engine.
In 2018, however, the NFL star ran into a little bit of trouble with this baby and hit a garbage truck. Fortunately for both, the damage was minimal and no reports to the authorities were made.
Pat O’Donnell – McLaren 570S, Estimated Price $208K
The Chicago Bears punter has this treasured English sports car. While it might be considered the entry-level car in a line of some far more powerful McLaren Sport models, it's still no jokester. This packs quite a bit of oomph and can go 0-60 in over 3 seconds.
Its combination of luxury interior comforted and solid power makes it a perfect day type of car, well. In some universe.
Brandon Marshall — Porsche 911 GT3, Estimated Price $150K
This amazing Porsche 911 GT3 was the once the cause of a contentious bet. NFL star Antonio Brown once bet the receiver that he could revive more yards than him. Brown won the bet and Marshall had to hand over the car. Luckily, Brown was merciful and let him keep it, insisting that he donate the monetary equivalent to a charity instead.
That sure was nice of Brown and a great way to get him to hand over some of those greens. Still, we can imagine what Marshall must have thought over the mere idea of surrendering his precious car. At least it has a happy ending.
Tom Brady — Aston Martin DB11, Estimated Price $216K
So it's another incredible car owned by Tom Brady. Can you blame him? Aside from making a killing, it was Aston Martin that decided to partner up with the champ and develop a limited-edition convertible, fit for a 'Brady frame."
Only a total of 12 cars were produced and one of them is sitting in his garage. Go, Brady.
Aaron Donald — Karma Revero, Estimated Price $135K
Los Angeles Rams, Aaron Donald got lucky in 2018 when he signed a 6-year $135 million contract with the team. Celebrations were clearly in order, so the NFL star got his new wheels, the Karma Revero, delivered to his doorstep.
The electric car costs a hefty sum, but with a deal like that, we're sure that Donald didn't think twice.
Chris Johnson – Impala, Estimated 2K
It's rare, but sometimes it happens. Chris Johnson went for the classic car route instead of the brand new supercar. As a car lover, he actually enjoyed customizing and tweaking it and made this car pretty darn cool.
Some might see it as overkill but it's an impressive job for this 1973 Chevy Caprice Classic.
Amari Cooper — BMW I8, Estimated Price $112K
Amari Cooper is famous for showing up regularly to training session riding this beautiful white horse. The hybrid sports car cost the Dallas Cowboy a pretty penny but he has clearly been very pleased with it. That being said, Cooper's feelings may begin to sway pretty soon.
BMW recently confirmed that they will no longer be producing these cars and as of April they officially pulled the plug on that model. Poor Amari, we hope he feels ok about it.
Sedrick Ellis – Ferrari California, Estimated $250K
Sedrick Ellis only spent five years in the NFL, mostly with the New Orleans Saints, but also briefly with the Chicago Bears, as a defensive tackle. But in that short span of time, he was able to buy a Ferrari California for an estimated worth of $250,000.
This is just a quick example of how much one can earn in a single year if given the chance to play with the big dogs. With proper financial management, knocking guys down in the field for a couple of years could really set you off to a great start in life. Ellis retired back in 2013.
Travis Kelce – Mercedes Benz, $315,000
Travis Kelce didn’t just waltz his way into earning so much with the Kansas City Chiefs. It was the product of a last minute decision, and from there on he had to prove his worth, until he was able to establish his distinct value in the team.
When the Chiefs ultimately decided to sign him to a multi-million dollar deal, they already knew firsthand that they had the right man for the job. Travis Kelce followed up by starting a collection of luxury cars, which included specimens like this AMG class SUV truck car by Mercedes Benz, that he bought for $315,000. He knows he deserves it.
Malcolm Butler – 2015 Chevy Colorado, $27,985
Once in a while, we get to read about some nice things that still exist in the world of extremely wealthy super athletes. Even in the NFL, it is not always about swag, or athletes trying to steal attention from each other, making a fashion statement.
Take this story about Tom Brady gifting Malcolm Butler with a 2015 Chevy Colorado, for example. Brady earned this vehicle as a reward for the third Super Bowl MVP achievement of his football career, and he simply wanted to share his blessings with a modest guy like Butler, who deserves more than he’s willing to accept.
LeGarrette Blount – Custom Chevy, Estimated $44,995
When LeGarrette Blount wasn’t knocking down guys in the football field amidst thousands of chants, he would ride this custom Chevy, that is, in itself, a knockout.
His favorite car may not be ideal for many, but that’s just how the American football running back rolls. He just signed a one-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles, and may add another ride to his list of eye-catching custom cars. But right now, this Chevy is his favorite, with its huge wheels, red colored rims, and chassis, customized to lift the casing up like a pickup truck.
Landon Collins – California City Apartment, $1.7 Million
Landon Collins, the New York Giants safety, owns one of the most expensive apartments in California. It is located at the top floor of a high-rise building, that offers him a stellar view of the area, city lights co-mingling with the stars at night. It has two bedrooms, built on hardwood flooring, and a fashionable pool awaits him on the rooftop.
Whenever Landon Collins decides to drive around the city, he has the option to take his Buick or BMW. Both are cool choices, not too conspicuous, but certainly with a touch of class.
Jamaal Charles – Lamborghini Gallardo, Estimated $250K
As if the Lamborghini Gallardo weren’t already a one-of-a-kind automobile, Jamaal Charles had to make sure his car stood out even more.
The American football running back is currently a free agent, but he’s not letting that hold him back from living in luxury. He first signed up with the Kansas City Chiefs, and last played for the Jacksonville Jaguars. He can afford to relax a bit and ride around in his baby blue racing machine, with its customized sound system and advanced security system.
Frank Gore – Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé, Estimated $350K
As a professional football player for the NFL, Frank Gore is the 49er’s all-time leader in rushing yards and touchdowns. He’s been actively competing since 2005, and is in the final years of his successful career. It’s the phase where one normally looks back to reassess past investments, reap dividends, and re-evaluate financial placements.
Frank Gore has already invested in real estate, and his line up of luxury cars can easily make one envious. The most recent addition to his collection is the 2010 Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé, with an all black exterior instead of the typical two-tone original paint job. Even without the color change, this high-end gentleman’s car costs around $350,000.
NaVorro Bowman – Porsche Panamera, Estimated $170K
We know NaVorro Bowman has a good eye for real estate, based on an old house he remodeled extensively. But the linebacker for the San Francisco 49ers has a penchant for expensive cars, too, a trait not too uncommon among rich pro-football athletes.
Among his collection of luxury cars, his favorite is the Porsche Panamera, that is estimated to be worth around $170K. We’re not sure how many cars he actually owns, that are in stow in his grand residence, but he must have a large garage and high maintenance costs for its upkeep.
Adrian Peterson – BMW 750i, Estimated $82K
The running back for the Washington Redskins, Adrian Peterson, knows how to put his hard-earned money to good use. In fact, he has an impressive fleet of luxury cars, his favorite being the customized 2006 BMW 750i, which cost him $82,000. As such, we can just imagine how enormous his parking area is.
Moving forward, it would be great if Peterson could keep away from the type of expensive lawsuits that must have cost him dearly in the past. Thankfully, he still has most of his savings intact and, as long as he learns from his mistakes, the sky is still the limit.
Eli Manning – Cadillac Escalade Hybrid, Estimated $74.5K
You would presume that somebody of Eli Manning’s stature in the NFL, where as a quarterback for the New York Giants he holds the record for most passing yards, touchdown passes, and completed passes in a career, would be riding posh cars around to match his vaunted reputation.
Instead of splurging his hard-earned money with a huge collection of luxury cars, Manning decided to purchase an Escalade Hybrid for $74,500. He’s quite content with it, plus he gets to sleep peacefully at night without being bothered by too many bills to pay.
Alfred Morris – 1991 Mazda 626, Estimated $2
Maybe Alfred Morris is one of those guys who remains content as long as the things he owns still get the job done. Or, perhaps, he’s just used to being so modest.
Although Alfred Morris is earning a fortune by playing as a running back for the Dallas Cowboys, he’s still maintaining a simple lifestyle, akin to his days before signing up with the NFL. Shockingly, Morris is still driving the 1991 Mazda 626 which he bought for only $2 during his college years. If it gets him from A to B, he can’t fathom spending money on a Ferrari to do the same job.
Clinton Portis – Maserati Gran Turismo, Estimated $143K
Whenever Clinton Portis feels down, perhaps all he has to do is look at his garage where his Maserati Gran Turismo is parked. It is a remnant of his glory days, when he was cheered on as a running back for the NFL for nine years.
Clinton Portis no longer plays football. He retired in 2010 and has since filed for bankruptcy. He used to have a great collection of cars, like this Maserati, and we wonder what things he’d do to change the direction of his life if given the chance to relive his opulent days.
Ray Rice – Porsche Panamera, Estimated $146K
Some athletes have a wild streak that can be hard to contain, especially when reinforced by their acquisition of money and power. In situations like those, they end up losing some money; there are lawyers to pay, damages demanded by aggrieved parties and whatnot. It can be a real sticky situation once you’re in it.
We’re impressed with Ray Rice’s wide collection of luxury cars, though. The running back for the Baltimore Ravens is a proud owner of a posh Porsche Panamera Turbo, valued at $146,000. Hopefully, he will be able to settle his legal battles with his wife and get back to focusing on his football career.
Nate Clements – Hummer H2, Estimated $63K
The American football cornerback was one of the top prospects of the 2001 NFL Draft, where he had signed to play for the Buffalo Bills for five years. He played for the San Francisco 49ers next, and then the Cincinnati Bengals, in a career that spanned a little over a decade.
Clements’ contract with the San Francisco 49ers should have been enough to afford him a very comfortable life, totaling an astounding $80 million. This allowed him to purchase and maintain a collection of muscle cars, like his favorite 2006 Hummer H2, worth $63,000, without making a dent in his bank account.
Eric Berry – Chevrolet Tahoe, Estimated $47K
Eric Berry has established himself as a professional football player for the NFL with a career spanning eight years (and counting). He plays for the Kansas City Chiefs. Unfortunately, he was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma, but, not easily deterred, he worked his hardest on making a return to such a highly competitive sport. He was named AP Comeback Player of the Year in 2015.
One of his notable purchases is a black Chevrolet Tahoe that has show-stopping 26″ Giovanna Dalar 6V wheels. Berry loves his ride, despite how much his views on life and his career have drastically changed since his life threatening illness. Its value is estimated at around $47K.
Charles Johnson – Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder, Estimated $209K
It was a childhood dream of Charles’ Johnson to play for the NFL, where he’s now a veteran wide receiver. He first played for the Green Bay Packers, and has been a free agent since 2013.
Another dream Charles Johnson has fulfilled, having earned more than enough dough through football, is to have a collection of sports cars - specifically owning a Lambo. His Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder is his favorite of the lot, and it is estimated at $209k. These babies are not easy to maintain, but luckily, Charles Johnson has more than enough to sustain his hobby.
Michael Oher – BMW 7-Series, Estimated $81K
Michael Oher was featured in the award-winning film ‘The Blind Side’. His high school life and freshman year of college were the subject of Michael Lewis’s book, on which the film was based. He has quite the personality. He is popular; in fact, he is considered one of the biggest names in Super Bowl. The American football offensive tackle is now a free agent, but he has previously played with the Tennessee Titans, the Baltimore Ravens, and the Carolina Panthers.
His sports skills made him popular and earned him an incredible fortune. Oher is the proud owner of a BMW 7-Series, worth $81,000. Note that a luxury car like Oher’s has expensive insurance, too.
James Harrison – Smart ForTwo, Estimated 14K
A professional football player with a practical automobile sounds like an odd combination to most of us, but that’s what James Harrison of the Pittsburgh Steelers has opted for. He purchased a Smart ForTwo car instead of a Benz or a Rolls Royce.
He’s the proud owner of an automobile that he got for only $14K, which is almost unheard of for someone earning so much. Perhaps he’d rather have a bank account he can lean on for a long time,rather than a million dollar car that demands even more money to maintain. James Harrison is a smart man.
Patrick Peterson – Chevrolet Camaro, Estimated $25K
Patrick Peterson loves to collect cars, but not just any cars. The corner-back for the Arizona Cardinals has got a definite thing for the Chevrolet Camaro, and saying that he likes them would be quite an understatement. He’s downright passionate about them!
He owns not just one or two of the sexy beast of a vehicle, but ten! And each one cost him an estimated $25k. His very first Camaro was painted in honor of his team’s colors - red and black. Chevrolet must be exceedingly pleased with this incredible collection of their fleet. We wouldn’t be surprised if he became the car’s brand ambassador one day.
Aaron Rodgers – Chevrolet Camaro, Estimated $35K
Green Bay Packers‘ quarterback Aaron Rodgers is way cooler than we thought. After starting his career, mainly as a backup to Brett Favre, he has finally put himself in the front seat, now leading the NFL as its all-time regular season career passer-rating leader.
Rodgers has a penchant for fast cars. This is manifested by his ownership of a custom 2011 Chevrolet Camaro. The regal ride of the NFL star features a modern entertainment system, a navigation system, and a top of the line security system. Of course, he wouldn’t forget his team’s logo on the back, for inspiration.
Bernard Berrian – Audi R8, Estimated $170K
The year 2010 was a low point in Bernard Berrian’s football career. The following year, the Minnesota Vikings released him, and that was practically the end of it. But during his heyday as an American football wide receiver, both the Chicago Bears and the Vikings undoubtedly benefited from his performance.
It was a relatively short career for Bernard Berrian, spending three years on each team, but you’ve got to give it to him. In such a short span of tim, he made sure he had a gold token for himself in the form of a customized blue Audi R8. This one’s worth $170k.
Earl Thomas – Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster, Estimated $250K
As a draft analyst for the NFL network, Michael Mayock praised Earl Thomas who, in his personal assessment, was the most instinctive free safety he’s ever observed on tape over the last five to six years. He made valuable contributions to the team as a rookie, on their way to the Seahawks’ first Super Bowl victory.
It’s been 8 years since Thomas was drafted, and so many things have changed for him since. For instance, he now has an extensive collection of luxury cars, which includes a Rolls-Royce Phantom, a Chevy Camaro, and his pride – a $250K Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster. Life has certainly changed for the best.
Marion Barber – Chevrolet Impala, Estimated $35K
After serving the Dallas Cowboys and the Chicago Bears as a dependable running back, Marion Barber thought of giving something back to himself as a reward, a sort of motivating factor. So he decided to buy a vintage car worthy of his endeavors: a 1971 Chevrolet Impala kept in pristine condition.
Barber sealed the deal for the classic automobile and had it customized straightaway in honor of his previous teams. It flashes the colors yellow and orange, with a price tag of $35k. Each time he rolls with it, the gold rims sparkle like coins out of a treasure chest.
Darrelle Revis – Range Rover Evoque, Estimated $50K
Darrelle Revis is currently a free agent, and on the lookout for a team that might be better suited to him. But this doesn’t mean he is in need of a financial boost of any kind. He is smart enough to forecast such gaps between employments, and has tucked away a fair bit from when he played for teams like the New York Jets, New England Patriots, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as a cornerback.
Revis, in fact, has an extensive collection of cars, which includes his Range Rover Evoque, worth $50K. It is colored blood red -an eye-catcher, bold, and dashing.
Calvin Johnson – Porsche Panamera Turbo, Estimated $150K
Calvin Johnson is a former wide receiver for the Detroit Lions. For him, speed comes with the territory, which is why he got himself a car that goes from zero to sixty in just 3.2 seconds. This is quite the machine for Johnson, and that’s why it’s his favorite.
Luckily for him, he has the money to sustain such an expensive hobby. He purchased this blue speed devil upfront, without any loans. Then, he brought it to the best custom shops in the neighborhood to soup it up, dropping some hefty piles of cash directly from his pocket!
Jay Cutler – Audi R8 GT, $200K
Jay Cutler has played for the Denver Broncos and the Chicago Bears as their quarterback, but he is now working with the Miami Dolphins. Alongside his transfers comes an increase in his paychecks, plus the priceless feeling that he is finally at home with his current team.
Brighter days hover over the horizon for Cutler, and those around him expect him to venture into business and make some smart investments. For now, he has bought a lavish gift for himself. It was no less than a custom Audi R8 GT worth $200,000. Celebration is in order all right!
Michael Strahan – Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Roadster, Estimated $525K
At the close of their careers, most super athletes that earn soaring incomes mull about slowing down in expenses beyond the sport. After all, retirement can be a long and very slow process. Exclude Michael Strahan from that list, at least when it comes to spending for his luxury car collection.
Now a famous TV personality, Strahan is a proud luxury car collector. His collection includes a gorgeous Porsche Carrera GT, a sleek Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe, and a couple of his favorite Mercedes-Benzs. It is safe to say that the former New York Giants’ defensive end has not shown signs of slowing down.
Patrick Willis – Aston Martin DB9, Estimated $200K
After spending eight years with the San Francisco 49ers, Patrick Willis has had a decorated career in football. Yet he realized that someday, it would all come to an end, the fun and the success and the tough competition that he’d come to really enjoy. To keep this winning feeling going beyond the days of sport, he pampered himself with a line of luxury cars - vessels of his success.
The former football linebacker has an impressive collection of vehicles. Parked in his lovely Bay Area mansion is a showstopper - the regal black 2013 Aston Martin DB9. Willis’ chic car highlights his team’s color in red, via the red outlines on the rims. It screams, go 49ers!
Darren McFadden – Buick Centurion, Estimated $100K
After 10 seasons in the NFL, Darren McFadden, former running back for the Dallas Cowboys and the Oakland Raiders, decided to call it a day and retired from the football scene. But he isn’t the type of guy that likes to simply fade into the twilight, as far as his taste for cars is concerned.
McFadden has six luxury cars stowed in his garage. His collection includes a silver Bentley Continental GT and a Cadillac Escalade. But of all his babies, it’s the 1973 Buick Centurion worth $100,000 that will steal your attention. Customized in metallic purple, neon green leather seats, and over-sized wheels, McFadden spent a sizable amount in restoring this cool ride. It’s all zing!
Reggie Bush – Lamborghini Aventador, Estimated $450K
Reggie Bush was chosen as the most outstanding player in the nation during his college football years, which opened up many opportunities for him to join the big league, with millions of dollars ready for the taking.
Prior to announcing his retirement from football, on December 15, 2017, Reggie Bush played as a running back for several teams, like the New Orleans Saints, Miami Dolphins, Detroit Lions, San Francisco 49ers, and the Buffalo Bills. Like his colleagues in the NFL, Bush is an avid fan of luxury cars. His collection includes a $300,000 Mustang GT 500 Fastback and a sleek 2011 Lamborghini Aventador, worth $450,000.
Tom Brady – Rolls-Royce Ghost, Estimated $300K
Regarded as one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time by American football pundits, Tom Brady wants it all. The crazy thing about it is that he might just have all that his heart desires, seeing as he is one of the richest athletes in the NFL, and husband to supermodel Gisele Bundchen.
Brady has the looks, vaunted skills, money, and power - you name it, he’s got it. To add to the stack of one enviable trait after another , he has a cool collection of luxury cars too. This includes a $150,000 Audi R8, and his favorite car, a customized $300,000 Rolls-Royce Ghost, for added mystery to the football legend that is Tom Brady.
Larry Fitzgerald – Mercedes Benz SL550, Estimated $100K
Since 2004, Larry Fitzgerald has been a wide end receiver for the Arizona Cardinals. Each year that he has dedicated himself to overcoming the competition and concentrating on the game, his bank account has grown bigger. By how much, we can only imagine.
As a manifestation of his wealth, Fitzgerald is a happy owner of a restored classic Mustang Shelby, a red BMW 745i, a black Rolls Royce, and an orange S class Range Rover. And of course, we can’t leave out his absolute favorite, the silver Mercedes Benz SL550, worth over $100,000. We’re out of words, simply in awe.
Joe Haden – Lamborghini Aventador, Estimated $1.1 Million
You’d be hard pressed to find anyone, especially a wealthy athlete, who does not dream of owning a Lamborghini some day down the road. It is exquisitely designed, powerful, and captivating, but it is also very much above the majority’s pay grade.
Joe Haden, the Cleveland Browns’ cornerback, however, owns not one, but two of these Italian sports cars. It’s like a double dream come true. His very first was the white Lamborghini Murciélago, and then there’s the custom 2014 Lamborghini Aventador, that matches his team’s colors, in fierce orange and brown.
Colin Kaepernick – Jaguar F Type, Estimated $100K
Caught up in an unusual conundrum only the affluent could have, Colin Kaepernick resolved his confusion in a manner only a pro-football player with wild purchasing power could do.
First, he wanted to buy his dream car, the Jaguar F Type worth $100,000, painted black. But he could not deny the temptation of owning a red one, too. So the former quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers decided that he could not possibly live without either, and purchased both. It was a decision made for his peace of mind.
Vernon Davis – Bentley Continental GT Convertible, Estimated $200K
The Washington Redskins’ Vernon Davis is a self-proclaimed “car guy.” Unsurprisingly, he keeps a beautiful collection of luxury vehicles in his home, like shiny trophies and memorabilia of his successful football career. In 2006, his very first contract with the league was worth $23 million.
The former tight end of the Denver Broncos & San Francisco 49ers owns a custom jet-black Ford F150 truck, 2 white Escalades, a Mercedes Benz S63, a Porsche Panamera, and a $200,000 Bentley Continental GT Convertible. One of the special features of his car collection is the advanced anti-theft security system.
Antrel Rolle – Maserati GranTurismo, Estimated $150K
Prior to announcing his retirement from football on November 2016, Antrel Rolle made significant contributions as a former safety for the Arizona Cardinals, the New York Giants, and the Chicago Bears. When he finally retired from the sport, he accumulated a record of 834 career tackles.
With an NFL career that spanned a decade, Rolle had made luxurious investments, and one of them involved the purchase of this gorgeous Maserati GranTurismo for $150,000. This posh car is just perfect for an All-American Super Bowl champion. It is a timeless piece, colored in red, a reflection of his rich and grand career.
A.J. Green – Porsche Panamera 4S, Estimated $160K
A.J. Green’s estimated net worth is about $35 million. That’s the product of hard work, dedication, and, most of all, loyalty.
Green has been the wide receiver for the Cincinnati Bengals since 2011, and he has earned an impressive record in catching passes in the last eight years. He is one of those NFL athletes who knows that those big money contracts aren’t going to last forever. The sports years are only a fraction of one’s lifetime and, therefore, one must be financially literate moving forward. Despite being a conservative spender, he broke his rule when he bought himself a $160,000 Porsche Panamera 4S.
Julio Jones – Ferrari 458 Spider, Estimated $270K
Julio Jones is only 28 years old. He is fast and strong, a young man with a very bright future in the NFL. At this point in his career, he is estimated to be worth over $25 million, and he’s in a position to earn even more down the line.
He likes big houses, a symbol of power and position in society. The wide receiver for the Atlanta Falcons has a strong liking for posh cars, too. In fact, Julio Jones is a proud owner of a customized crisp white Ferrari 458 Spider, accentuated with red rims and a red stallion worth $270,000.
Thomas Jones – Rolls Royce Phantom, Estimated $300K
With an 11-year career in the NFL as a running back for the Arizona Cardinals, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Chicago Bears, New York Jets, and the Kansas City Chiefs, Thomas Jones’ legacy in football still lives on, almost like an institution in itself.
The athlete-turned-actor has collected luxury cars throughout his career, but one stands out as his favorite. The custom red Rolls Royce Phantom, with an estimated value of $300,000, stands in a league of its own. This head-turner is fit for a king, like Thomas Jones was in the NFL, having showcased his outstanding football skills until his retirement.
Marcell Dareus – Ferrari F430, Estimated $280K
Marcell Dareus drives a car that looks to be borne by golden coins for its customized gold rims. He is flamboyant like that, and it’s not a regular car you’d see just anywhere.
It’s called the “Fur-rari,” apparently because it’s exterior is wrapped in red velvet. You certainly cannot accuse the guy of being inconspicuous, but why should he be? The defense tackle for the Jacksonville Jaguars owns a gorgeous red Ferrari F430 worth $280,000. That’s not something you’d like to keep in the background. This luxury vehicle features a custom JL Audio system, which is controlled by an iPad mini.
Ezekiel Elliott – Corvette Stingray, Estimated $60K
The Dallas Cowboys’ Ezekiel Elliott is beyond grateful to finally make it to the big league, but he isn’t the type to forget his roots.
Thrilled for signing his rookie contract, Elliot’s first act wasn’t to go shopping for himself, although we all know he eventually would. Humble and loving, the first thing that popped into his mind when he got his millions was to reach out to the people who had reared him to become the man he is now: his parents. He proudly bought them a new house! As for himself, the running back bought a white Corvette Stingray worth $60,000. This chic sports car matches the personality of the young football superstar - a standout athlete with superb strength.
Joe Flacco – Corvette Stingray, Estimated $70K
When Baltimore Ravens’ quarterback Joe Flacco was named as the Super Bowl’s Most Valuable Player in 2013, he deserved nothing less for his devotion to training and commitment to his team.
Aside from the highly coveted award, he was also gifted this gorgeous red-orange Corvette Stingray, worth $70,000. Indeed, a supercar for a super player. Flacco reportedly had to pay for the taxes on this vehicle, which he didn’t mind doing, considering not only its monetary value but the warm memories of a great season.
Drew Brees – Bugatti Veyron, Estimated $2.2 Million
Drew Brees’ meteoric career in the NFL as quarterback for the New Orleans Saints has fueled his desire for fast cars. He likes to use them to the maximum, too, to the chagrin of local law enforcement.
Out of the five cars that he owns, the ultra-lux Bugatti Veyron is his most expensive one, with a price tag of a cool $2.2 million. He’s also not shy about revving those engines, despite a previous car accident he should be mighty grateful for surviving. Constantly risking it while in the game as well as off the field, if danger can be an addiction for some people, this certainly serves as proof.
LaRon Landry – Lamborghini Murcielago, Estimated $450K
LaRon Landry (aka Iron Man) is a former safety for the Washington Redskins, New York Jets, and the Indianapolis Colts. Just like other NFL superstars, Landry has a wide collection of toys that can be attributed to super athletes’ predilection towards speed and power.
His extravagant collections include a white Hummer H2 pickup, a matte white Lamborghini Aventador, a modified 2008 silver Corvette, and a metallic green Lamborghini Murcielago that he customized for a pretty sum of $450,000. You can just stare at these babies the whole day!
Cam Newton –1970 Oldsmobile 442 Cutlass, Estimated $255K
The quarterback for the Carolina Panthers lives securely in his new posh condo in Charlotte, that has an extremely advanced security system. He likes to go up to his rooftop and watch the neighborhood that he loves from the pool.
But the real deal about Cam Newton is when he goes out to drive his 1970 Oldsmobile 442 Cutlass - a combination of gold and black colors. The interior is fit for a king, seats riddled with diamond stitches. He loves to customize his car, and it is safe to say it will undergo some more upgrades despite all the improvements already made to it. But how do you upgrade a car that already has 24-karat gold plating?
Odell Beckham Jr – Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe, Estimated $500K
New York Giants’ wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is considered one of the most productive football players active today, and is listed on Forbes’ “30 under 30.”
With numerous awards in his professional career in the NFL, Beckham has widened his investments and his penchant for luxury cars as well. He owns a customized Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG and a McLaren MP4-12C. As if these two top tier automobiles weren’t enough, the popular athlete has added a Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe, with an estimated value of a whooping $500,000. It only makes you wonder, with an extremely expensive line up like this, what could be next? We know it’s just a matter of time before his next purchase.
Antonio Brown – Rolls-Royce Phantom, Estimated $500K
The wide receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers knows how to express his feelings in style. He loves his mansion, that is reportedly worth $6.6 million, but the main vessel for expressing his pride is literally in his ride, that is reportedly valued at $500k.
