Celebrity status always comes in line with a prestigious lifestyle and these personalities have different ways of showing it and intentions when making purchases of their most expensive items.
Some do it for the show-off and to seal their status by earning the title of being among the very few to own the items while others have always been genuinely passionate about owning such merchandise.
Apart from posh houses one of the most expensive items most celebrities own are cars or for their exquisite features, it is fair to call them luxurious vehicles.
