He must have been a VERY good boy this year.
Rapper 50 Cent is a very wealthy man. Various reports have pegged his net worth upwards of $150 million. If accurate, then he's now worth about $147 million. That's because he's just gifted himself with a $3 million Bugatti Chiron for Christmas. The rapper has just uploaded a video showing off the front end of his Chiron to his Instagram page and clearly the guy has fine taste in cars.
His Chiron has a carbon fiber finish with a gorgeous blue trim around the famous horseshoe-shaped grille and side mirrors. Although it's a bit hard to tell from the video, it appears the interior directly reflects the exterior: black with blue trim. There are even gloss black wheels with – you guessed it – blue brake calipers. "Merry Christmas to you and your family. Stay positive, stay focused… go hard 2020. Boom" 50 Cent wrote to accompany the video.
He didn't offer any additional details about the car, but we already know plenty about the Chiron. It comes powered by a quad-turbocharged W16 engine with a total of 1,479 horsepower and 1,180 lb-ft of torque. Zero to 60 mph happens in only 2.4 seconds and its top speed is electronically limited to 261 mph.
However, the Chiron Super Sport 300+ just doesn't have a clever name; it was the first production car to break the 300 mph barrier with a top speed of 304.773 mph. Only 30 examples are planned at a base price of $3.9 million. A standard Chiron, however, has a starting price of around $2.9 million, though wealthy buyers always tack on additional features and various customization options.
Remember, every Bugatti is built to order. Even with 50 Cent's custom requests, his Chiron is not the most expensive one out there. Look no further than the Chiron Hermes Edition, ordered by real estate entrepreneur Manny Khoshbin. The Bugatti Chiron Hermes Edition took three years to build as it was dipped in Hermes Craie off white paint, given specially designed cashmere fabric on the door panels, and features a unique front horseshoe grille.
