Hence, it is interesting to check which modified car our favorite celebrity owns. Here we have compiled a list of the Ten cool Modified Cars owned by our favorite celebrity.
1. David Beckham and Rolls Royce Phantom
David Beckham is a well-known football player. As much as he is known for his flamboyant lifestyle, his expansive car collection has been the talk-of-the-town. His car collection includes plenty of big names such as Porsche 911 Turbo, Bentley Mulsanne and Continental Supersports, an Audi RS6 Avant, a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, a Range Rover, and a Cadillac Escalade. The one car that stands out from this impressive fleet is the custom-made Rolls-Royce Phantom. A 6.75-liter V12 engine producing 453 hp powers the beast. And it is controlled by a six-speed automatic transmission.
Specially built 24-inch Savini Forged wheels give the Phantom a unique look. The tailor-made engravings of Beckham’s jersey number ’23’ on all the seats make this car ‘Beckham’s personalized possession.’
2. Jay Leno- EcoJet
Comedian Jay Leno’s car collection is so impressive that he is often known as the world’s most famous car collector. Unlike other celebrities who buy cars and modify them, Leno went a step further and collaborated with General Motors to develop the EcoJet, a fully-functioning concept car.
Leno asked his ‘Big Dog’ crew of master mechanics to assemble the car. The crew came up with some additions that we can only term as ‘mind-boggling.’ The car has a Honeywell gas turbine helicopter engine and runs on both clean-burning jet engine fuel and biodiesel. The supercar is completely street-legal, somewhat planet-friendly, and by all means a possession to be proud of.
3 Kim Kardashian- Ferrari 458 Italia
Kim Kardashian’s cars mingle with her persona. Her cars are curvaceous, high-maintenance, and stacked with non-original parts. She owns a $ 325k white 458 Italia. Kim’s then-beau Kris Humphries arguably bought this car, and Los Angeles’ Platinum Motorsports gave it an impressive appearance. The car is one of a million-dollar fleet of aspirational rides that includes a Rolls-Royce Ghost, a blacked-out Bentley Continental GTC, and the celeb-obligatory flat-black Merc G63.
4. Jay Z- Maybach Excelero

The Exelero is a solid sports car conceived specially for a high-magnitude performance. Daimler Chrysler, in partnership with Stola, has built this beast.
A twin-turbo V12 engine producing 690 hp at 5000 rpm form the powerhouse of this supercar. The Exelero goes from rest to 62 mph in a mere 4.4 seconds and has a top speed of 218 mph, making it a dream car for people that love speed.
5. Lady Gaga- El Camino
Lady Gaga is arguably the most popular iconoclast. Hence, her car choice is naturally unique. She owns a vintage coupe utility pickup, El Camino, which is a testament to her love for things that break the standard mold. General Motors has built Lady Gaga’s, El Camino. It features a front-engine and a rear-wheel-drive.
The utility coupe is a second-generation model, and the concept behind the car was to create a vehicle that works as a leisure car and a work truck. Lady Gaga complimented her car by stating, ‘truly some things never go out of style.’
6. Marshawn Lynch’s Jeep Wrangler
Seattle Seahawks’ running back Marshawn Lynch is a sight to behold when he is on the field. He has explosive power, intimidating smack talk, and the ability to enjoy a bag of Skittles during a game.

His ‘Beast Mode’ Jeep Wrangler has green lights, premium leather seats with the Lynch’s Beast Mode’ symbol stitched into them, and a ‘Beast Mode’ graphic on the front end.
7. Josh Gordon: Camouflage Porsche
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon owns a camouflage Porsche featuring bright orange rims. As expected, the color choice makes the car grab instant attention, but he tries to keep it low.
