The Cars of Kim Kardashian

Kimberly Noel Kardashian is a model and reality television star known for the shows Keeping Up with the Kardashians and Kourtney and Kim Take New York.  Born in 1980, she is considered as one of the highest earning reality television stars in the world.

Kardashian is known for turning all of her appearances into moneymaking opportunities. When she was in her early 20s, she was featured in an explicit sex tape scandal with a rapper. Rather than clam up about the incident, she filed a lawsuit and was awarded $5 million for it.  She also has several lines of clothing and fragrances, as well as her own clothing boutique called DASH that she co-owns with her sisters Kourtney and Khloe. She has endorsed a variety of products, from Bongo Jeans to Sugar Factory lollipops and Carl’s Jr. Not ashamed of flaunting her sexy curves, she has also posed in the nude for Playboy.

Kardashian was briefly married to the National Basketball Association player Kris Humphries, with the couple divorcing barely two months later. She made a killing endorsing through social media he products and services she used for her wedding.

All these money have been put to help further her collections of clothes and expensive cars. Yes, the curvy bombshell has a passion for the smooth curves of expensive cars. Her collection includes the following:

7 Bentley Continental GTC

This is one of the first cars she ever owned. The car boasts of a 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged W12 engine. It has a maximum 600 horsepower and can reach 100 kilometers per hour in just 4.8 seconds. Its speed can top up to 318 kilometers per hour. It has a six-speed shiftable automatic transmission.  And for good measure, Kardashian had the car seats engraved with the letters KK, which is her initials.

6 Ferrari 458 Italia

This is a mid-engine sports car that has the typical sporty styling and features one can expect from a Ferrari. Pininfarina designed the body that maximizes aerodynamic efficiency, drawing inspiration from Enzo Ferrari’s Millechili concept car. It has deformable winglets in the front grille that automatically lowers as the car goes faster in order to reduce drag, thereby allowing it to have speed that can go up to 124 miles per hour.  The steering wheel has been designed like that of a racing car’s, with the controls and features incorporated into it as against the usual design of having them in the dashboard. Those who regularly watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians will probably be familiar with this, as she used her white Ferrari 458 Italia to prank her stepfather, the Olympic gold medalist decathlete Bruce Jenner.

5 Lamborghini Aventador

She bought this for her current beau, Kanye West. The Aventador is the flagship model of the Lamborghini group, replacing the classic Murcielago.  The Aventador boasts of a 6.5-liter V12 engine, and can reach top speed of 349 kilometers per hour.  It can reach a hundred kilometers per hour in just 2.7 seconds.

4 Mercedes Benz G63 AMG

The G63 is part of Mercedes Benz’s G-class series. It is a four-wheel drive sports utility vehicle that features a boxy style and body on frame construction. The G63 also has three fully locking differentials. While it obviously would not handle as well as a sports car, the extremely well built vehicle boasts of a 5.5-liter V8 engine with maximum 544 horsepower.  Kardashian was initially spotted with a white version of this vehicle. Recently however, she was seen driving a black matte-colored G63 customized by Platinum Motorsport, an auto customization shop based in Los Angeles. There is no word yet if they are one and the same vehicle or if she has bought a new one.

3 Pagani Huayra

Kardashian likes sexy and exotic cars to complement her sexy look. She was seen trying out a Pagani Huayra, a mid-engine sports car made in Italy. Only around 40 units are built each year. The car has a 5,980-cc, twin-turbo V12 engine manufactured by the AMG division of Mercedes Benz.  It has been slightly modified, however, with the Pagani engines equipped with smaller turbos to reduce lag, new intercooler configuration and different ECU settings. It is built with speed in mind, in order for it to live up to its name, which means God of the Winds in the Quechuan language of the ancient Inca Empire.

2 Range Rover HSE

Kardashian has both black and white versions of this luxury four-wheel drive sports utility vehicle.  Known for its off-road prowess, the HSE can go up to 100 kilometers per hour in just a little above 7.2 seconds, more than a second and a half better than the previous version of the vehicle. It has a maximum 375 horsepower, thus allowing the vehicle to draw on an appropriate amount of power. It also has revised steering for better response. Safety has also been enhanced with larger disc brakes on all four wheels.

1 Rolls Royce Phantom

This is luxury at its best. The saloon automobile features upgraded leather upholstery, rear view camera, navigation system with voice recognition, a premium sound system boasting of 26 speakers, wireless headphones and eight-disc CD changer, heated and cooled cup holders, refrigerator, and climate control air conditioning. The steering wheel is made of wood and wrapped with leather, and has the controls for the radio, navigation and climate systems.  Kardashian also had a whole lot of other options installed, as Rolls Royce has a program for its customers called Bespoke, which will allow the client any option that the company finds reasonable.  The company has also addressed the problem of the Spirit of Ecstasy ornament that adorns every Rolls Royce. The ornament is prone to theft and pedestrian accidents. Rolls Royce has installed a mechanism that will make the Spirit of Ecstasy retract at the touch of a button, or when the alarm is sounded, or when the base of the ornament is tampered with.  Additionally, those iconic RR logos on the wheel hubs now have independent bezels so that it will remain upright while the wheel is turning.
