From Kim Kardashian to Tyga, celebrities often want custom paint jobs. Paris Hilton was one of the first to start this trend. The hotel heiress was famous for her pink Bentley before celebrities had car crushes. Custom paint jobs can oftentimes run for many thousands of dollars. Most of these cars never even get driven. They’re more of a status symbol than anything.

21: Great Stereo Systems

Celebrities do a lot of showing off to friends and other celebrities. When it comes to elite car features, a top stereo system is another must. When you take your vehicle to various car shows, there’s no reason to use a standard sound system.

Most celebrities put a good amount of money into a sound system. Take a look at the Dodge Sprinter owned by Tyrese Gibson and you’ll get an idea.

20: Bulletproofing

Wealth incites envy, and for celebrities, there are sometimes threats to their lives. The vehicle is perhaps one of the easiest places to get hurt. So having the right amount of bulletproofing can protect you from the outside. Jamie Foxx owns an armored vehicle known as the Rezvani Tank. This vehicle comes from the factory with bulletproof technology.


Other vehicles can be manufactured with extra bulletproofing. The most common bulletproof vehicle is the Suburban. This SUV is just luxurious enough for most celebs to look important in. Many companies will outfit a Suburban with any luxury features celebrities may want.

We all know that celebrities love to be seen and heard. But in an electric vehicle, this can be difficult to achieve.

Celebs, especially the younger generation, live on their social media accounts. That requires a lot of phone juice. The right amount of technology is great, but ports to power are just as important.

They look for brand recognition and clout.

For celebrities, the paparazzi are everywhere and privacy is at a minimum. The need for tinted windows is huge. If you’ve never driven a car with tinted windows, then you’ll fail to understand the importance. With the right set of tint, you’ll be protected from the sun and the public.

Vehicle tint is illegal in many states, which means celebrities will often break the law. But a ticket is a minimal price to pay to be protected from the prying eyes of the public. Tinted windows are a godsend for most in the public limelight.

The amount of armor plating you can get is only limited by how much you want to spend. Vehicles like the Rezvani Tank come pre-built with armor plating and bulletproof glass. These things are more for show than driving. But celebrities don’t seem to mind that too much.
