Being one of the most valuable platers in the NBA, basketball player and three time NBA champion LeBron James has certainly got the income to support himself with a number of high value and high performance cars. Currently playing for the LA Lakers, he’s earning an estimate of $40 million per year. Let’s check out his worthy car collection.
1975 Chevrolet Impala Convertible
As you can see, this Impala isn’t exactly subtle, and perfectly reflective of the time at which Le Bron was playing for Miami Heat. It has huge, colour matched wheels with tiny profile tyres, an encrusted boot and cabana coloured interior trim.
This car apparently has the 6.0-litre small block V8, but seeing the modifications to the exterior of this car, we wouldn’t be surprised if it had something a bit more potent under the bonnet.
Based on the Mercedes S-Class, this powerful luxury car produces 620bhp from its V12. The concept of the car was released at the 1997 Tokyo Motorshow, and now seems to be one of LeBron’s most used cars.
Lamborghini Aventador Roadster
This custom-wrapped supercar was used to celebrate the launch of the Nike LeBron XI and the King James Legacy Sneakers. A number of brands collaborated on the design of the wrap so as to make the V12 powered Italian Aventador seriously eye-catching.
With 700bhp at the right foot, this car can hit 217mph. With the roof down, you get direct access to that incredible sound, too.
One of LeBron’s first large purchases, the Hummer H2 marks the beginning of his basketball career. Unfortunately it was auctioned off in 2018, but LeBron surely enjoyed the 320bhp it produced from its 6.0-litre V8.
It featured a custom chrome grill, 28-inch wheels, multiple TV screens inside with an integrated PlayStation. West Coast Customs would have loved it.
Bentley Continental GT
Rumoured to be his favourite car, James’ Bentley Continental GT has its wheels matching the paint colour of the main body. It’s unknown as to whether he still owns this car, or if it was modified further.
Chevrolet Camaro SS
Again, with matte white on white paint and black pin striping, this car is one of the most flamboyant of his collection. With reportedly 20-inch wheels on this muscle car, it looks like something straight from Pimp My Ride. The blacked out windows also look great in contrast to the white paint.
According to Lebron, he was driving a Kia K900 long before he was sponsored by the brand. Powered by a 420bhp V8, this Kia isn’t what you’d expect from the South Korean brand and is more than able to out-drive a few higher-end brands.
Porsche 911 Turbo S
LeBron’s Porsche 911 Turbo S looks incredible next to fellow basketball player Dwayne Wade’s. They refer to their cars as their ‘Batman and Robin’. Despite its incredibly fast 0-60mph sprint time of 2.9 seconds, it does cost a massive $161,800. This car was so good, it urged LeBron to buy a Porsche Panamera for his mother.
Rolls- Royce Phantom
Gifted to James by Shaq, this large and heavy car is hauled along by 563bhp supplied by a large 6.7-litre. It’s far from subtle and boasts the very best of luxury features and effortless performance.
Jeep Wrangler Rubicon
This certainly isn’t even close to being one of his rarest or most expensive cars in his collection, but this top spec Jeep is one of the most eye-catching. Plagued with exhaust and emission issues, and on top of that reported drivability issues, this car doesn’t get as much time out on the road compared to LeBron’s other, more expensive cars.
Let us know your favourite from his collection and what you think about his ‘different’ modifications.
