Playboi Carti Car Collection: From a Huracan to a Rolls Royce Cullinan
Among all the American rappers who have acquired drool-worthy car collections, Jordan Terrell Carter, commonly known as Playboi Carti, is one of the newest additions to the list. The 25-year-old American rapper started gaining stardom in 2017 with his style of music and gothic fashion sense. His ‘Whole Lotta Red’ album, which has 24 tracks in total, featured on the top on the US Billboard 200 in December 2020, thus proving his popularity as an artist.
As an avid car lover, Playboi Carti has got a few top-notch luxury SUVs and sports cars that many of us can only dream of. Following are all the cars present in the car collection of Playboi Carti:
Rolls Royce Cullinan
The Rolls Royce Cullinan is the epitome among SUVs when it comes to offering unparalleled luxury and comfort. The Cullinan is Rolls Royce’s first attempt at making an SUV, and the British carmaker has nailed the job by making the Cullinan an SUV equivalent of its flagship sedan, the Phantom. And that’s a tall compliment, considering that the Phantom itself is the penultimate luxury sedan of the world.
The Rolls Royce Cullinan in the car collection of Playboi Carti was added by the rapper as a ‘family car’, which he acquired on the occasion of the birth of his newborn baby with Iggy Azalea. Painted in a suave shade of black, this Cullinan gets a custom brown leather upholstery with wooden inlays in the cabin. It is reported that Playboi Carti has spent nearly $400,000 to buy this custom Rolls Royce Cullinan.
Under the hood of the Rolls Royce Cullinan sits a massive 6.75-litre twin-turbocharged V12 petrol engine, which is the biggest engine powering a production SUV in the current times. Setting up some tall benchmarks in refinement and smooth power delivery, this engine churns out 571 PS of maximum power output and 850 Nm of peak torque output. This engine is coupled with an 8-speed automatic gearbox sourced from ZF.

Ferrari 488 GTB Spyder
Ferrari is one car maker which has always been on the list of true-blue car enthusiasts and those people who can afford such expensive cars. All the Ferraris offer uncompromised performance levels and guaranteed attention for their gorgeous styling, even in subtle colours. One such Ferrari is the 488 GTB in the car collection of Playboi Carti.
Now, the white paint shade of Carti’s Ferrari 488 GTB Spyder might not seem to be as attractive as the flagship red colour from Ferrari. But let us remind you once again – it is a Ferrari after all, and even in a shade as calm as white, it screams attention wherever it goes. There are a couple of images of Playboi Carti with his white-coloured Ferrari 488 GTB Spyder on his social media handles.
Introduced as a replacement for the Ferrari 458, the Ferrari 488 GTB is a mid-engine sports car, which continued to be in production for four years between 2015 to 2019. The Spyder is the convertible version of this sports car. Powering this beautiful-looking sports car is a high-performance 3.9-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine, which claims a maximum power output of 670 PS and a maximum torque output of 760 Nm. Paired to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, this engine has a specific power output of 171.7 PS per litre, the highest in a road-spec Ferrari.

Lamborghini Huracan Spyder
Another Italian sports car which graces the car collection Playboi Carti is the Lamborghini Huracan. Launched as a replacement for the iconic Gallardo, which still holds the record of being the highest-selling Lamborghini in the history of the brand, the Huracan is the most ‘affordable’ car you can buy with the raging bull logo on it.
Playboi Carti owns a Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 Spyder in the shade of Grigio Ater (grey). This convertible sports car was gifted to Carti by his then-girlfriend Iggy Azalea on the eve of Christmas. This Lamborghini Huracan Spyder is beautifully customized with custom alloy wheels and dual-tone black and orange interior scheme from Lamborghini.
The Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 Spyder was manufactured by the Italian sports car specialist between 2016 to 2019. Sharing its mechanicals with the coupe version, this Huracan gets a 5.2-litre naturally-aspirated V10 motor at its back, which is one of the last naturally-aspirated V10s around in the world. Mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, this engine is capable of pumping out 610 PS of maximum power and 560 Nm of maximum torque. While it can reach a top speed of 324 km/h, it can do a 0-100 km/h sprint in just 3.4 seconds.

Mercedes-Benz G 550
The Mercedes-Benz G-Class, popularly known as ‘G-Wagen’, is usually a common sight in the garages of the rappers. And the reasons are legit, for this big and modern SUV with a touch of retro appeal has one of the most striking road presences amongst all the luxury SUVs. The Mercedes-Benz G-Class sits right at the top of the German brand’s lineup as a hardcore lifestyle SUV, which makes it even more special.
The black-coloured Mercedes-Benz G-Class in the car collection of Playboi Carti is the G 550 version of the SUV, which was exclusively sold only in the USA from 2015 to 2018. This Mercedes-Benz G 550 is based on the global-spec G 500 but got a couple of additional features only for the US market. This G-Wagen of Playboi Carti also gets custom multi-spoke alloy wheels, which further raise the style quotient of the SUV.
Powering the Mercedes-Benz G 550 is a 4.0-litre Biturbo V8 petrol engine, which churns out a maximum power output of 416 PS and a peak torque output of 610 Nm. This engine is mated to a 7-speed 7G-Tronic automatic gearbox and enables this huge-sized SUV to be quick enough to cover the 0-100 km/h sprint in just 5.9 seconds and attain a top speed of 210 km/h. For an SUV which weighs almost 2.5 tons. The only direct rivals to the Mercedes-Benz G-Class are other hardcore luxury SUVs like Land Rover Defender and Jeep Wrangler.
