Top 5 Cars Owned by LeBron James
LeBron James is worth around $300 million and as such, can drive any car he so chooses. However, according to Kia, who sponsors James, the basketball superstar actually drives the company’s K900 luxury sedan. Earlier this week, Kia and James released a new ad that shows James actually driving a Kia K900 and accepting a $10 million bet made on Twitter. The ad is funny, but it does make us wonder about the rest of James’ car collection. While we don’t know what his current stable includes, we know what he’s driven in the past. Here are our picks of LeBron James’ top five Cars.

Honestly, the K900 is a really comfortable and soft car to cruise around town in. It’s priced reasonable for the amount of class and sophistication you receive, and offers amazing amounts of legroom for larger individuals like James. LeBron even has his own King James Edition. While many pan the K900 for being a wannabe Mercedes S-Class, the K900 is more of a Lexus competitor, although there are hints that it could one day compete with the Mercedes.
Lamborghini Aventador Roadster
In 2014, to celebrate the launch of LeBron’s newest limited edition Nike called the “King’s Pride,” James collaborated with Lou La Vie, Rich B Caliente and Toys for Boys Miami to wrap a brand new Lamborghini Aventador Roadster with the same style as the shoes. The result is one rather unique Lamborghini, and Lamborghini’s aren’t known for their subtlety. The wrap looks as if a Hawaiian shirt, worn exclusively by your dad, threw up on the almost $700,000 roadster. Thankfully, it’s just a wrap and can be removed.

A few years ago, Mercedes attempted to resurrect the defunct luxury brand by establishing its own set of cars and dealerships around the world. The company priced the car where only the richest of individuals could afford one. That didn’t work out all that well, and Maybach was shuttered after only a few years. That however, didn’t stop King James from owning one and getting a vanity plate that read, KNG OF OH. Mercedes is once again resurrecting the brand, but only as a trim level on the S-Class. Maybe it’s time to trade up?
Ferrari F430 Spider
It seems that there are only two types of cars in LeBron James’ garage. Big luxury sedans with loads of legroom, or drop top supercars because he can actually fit his 6’8” frame. James’ Ferrari F430 was in the very first episode of Unique Whips, and was customized by Will Castro of Unique Autosports who was contracted by James. This specific Ferrari made 490 horsepower, which allowed James to hit 60 miles per hour in just 3.7 seconds, which he would’ve needed after he left Cleveland for Florida.

Porsche 911 Turbo S Convertible
The Porsche 911 Turbo S Convertible is the quintessential super sports convertible. It’s lightning fast, it’s been engineered to deliver a dynamic driving experience, and you get the entirety of that turbocharged flat six-cylinder motor revving behind your ears. You also look like a total baller while driving one. Especially the black on red interior version that LeBron had.
It seems from the list above, LeBron James has at the very least, a cursory addiction to all things automotive related. He definitely has had a few lust worthy cars over the years. Hopefully, that’s a trend that continues into the future since he’ll definitely have the cash to do so. His latest contract with Nike is supposedly worth over half a billion dollars! Mr. James, can we interest you in a Koenigsegg One:1?
