King James is another basketball player with a collection of vehicles that lives up to his nickname.

One of the most talented women in show business, scratch that, any business, is Beyonce. She and husband Jay-Z are among the most powerful couples in the world, and have cars that match their class and talent.

Seven-time NBA All-Star Joe Johnson, who currently plays for the Brooklyn Nets, has a heavily upgraded and customized Ford F650. The truck cost him well over $200,000 to create and in terms of aesthetics, it is either the ugliest thing on the road, or one of the nicest vehicles you’ve ever seen.
Talk show host and car collector Jay Leno has to be on this list. He has a MacLaren P1 and an F1, a car made with the engine of a M47 Patton tank, a Jaguar XK120M, one of (rumored) only two existing, working Bugatti Type 57 Atlantic SC’s, an Ecojet, that he and General Motors produced several years ago and many other cars; mostly vintage and extremely rare. He also has a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse.
He has a couple of Ferrari’s, a Lamborghini Aventador, a Porsche 911 Turbo, and three Bugatti Veyrons. One is the Grand Sport edition. A few months ago, it was reported that he was looking to buy a $4.8 million Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita, one of the nicest, fastest cars in the world. Only three of said vehicle exist. It is unclear whether he is still pursuing the purchase.

Steven Tyler, the shrieking front man of the legendary rock band Aerosmith, has had an amazing career in the music business and now enjoys some amazing whips. His least impressive car is his Porsche but he also owns one of the fastest cars in the world: the Hennessey Venom GT Spyder. Is it a luxury car? Maybe not; more of a supercar, but owning a supercar is a luxury, and going over 260 miles per hour is also a luxury.
Aside from being one of the most successful fashion designers in the world, Ralph Lauren is also an avid car collector. He has dozens of classic cars that sit in a massive complex in Bedford Hills. His cars are mostly roadsters from decades past, and he apparently only spends about a day per year there. Among his prized beauties are several Rolls Royce vehicles, a few Bentleys but the pick of the pack is his $40 million Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic. It is one of only two in the world.
