Gucci Mane has copped himself a brand-new car, and it isn't what us regular shoppers would go for, even if we did go for some of the most luxurious brands out there.
The 38-year-old skipped a three-year wait list to get himself a 2018 Ferrari 812 Superfast, just 24 hours after he placed his order.
That is according to TMZ, who claims that sources apprised them of the special dispensation that allowed the rapper to jump ahead of other customers to get his new whip in a day.
Originally named Radric Davis, the hip-hop star rose to prominence after dropping his debut album Trap House in 2005. He has since gone on to release 12 more albums and now owns his own record label 1017 Records Davis is credited as being one of the originators of trap music, a hip-hop sub-genre also popularized by the likes of T.I and Young Jeezy.
The term "trap" though, is not all that positive as it refers to a location where drug deals go down. Yet, the genre has become quite popular over the years, with many other rappers joining in.
Gucci, meanwhile, is understood to have parted with the sum of $600,000 for said Ferrari, which boasts an 800 HP V-12 engine that goes from 0 to 60 mph in roughly three seconds. It also boasts a top speed of 211 mph.
He had it delivered on Sunday and was quick to show it off on Instagram, accompanying pictures of the beastly vehicle with the captions: "New Whip Alert I Pullup and they feelings Hurt!" and "Guwop copped the #GuRRarri #812SuperFast if I don’t get it first I don’t want it🤷🏿♂️#EvilGenius."
Pretty bold from the Mr. Davis artist, who got hands on the shiny red sports car through his pal Obi Okeke.
The Nigerian runs a dealership called Dr. Bugatti which scouts top rides, for a huge sum, of course. And he's previously sold a $3 million Ferrari Enzo to Floyd Mayweather.
Okeke also bought a Bugatti Veyron from Arnold Schwarzenegger for $2.5 million.
Gucci's latest ride will share a garage with various Mercedes models, as well as a Maserati and a Lamborghini. The rapper can consider himself quite lucky to have gotten a car that celebrates Ferrari's 70 years in the automotive business, especially this fast.
