7 Top Modified Cars Tricked out Celebrity Rides

Even celebrities love the feel of a custom ride, and while some of these are just saying “Help me, I need attention,” you can’t really judge people with too much money to spend. After all, what does a $100,000 really mean if you have a picture that will last forever!

Jack Osbourne

Jack Osbourne owns a BMW x5 with a custom paint job featuring a family portrait of zombies, with skulls airbrushed down the side panels. Ozzie has to be proud!!!

Britney Spears

Leave it to Britney to trick out a Hummer H2 with a custom paint job and Louis Vuitton upholstery.

Samuel Jackson

Samuel L. Jackson is cool no matter what he does, but owning a tricked-out Maybach 575 with a built-in fridge, and folding tables, complete with champagne flutes, and silver tumblers tops everything.

P. Diddy, Sean Combs, Puff Daddy

Whatever name this guy is using, you can bet it comes with a black card. The Chevy Express 3500 only has a base price of $28,000, but when you are P. Diddy it’s easy to drop another $380k to ride in style.

This stealth ride has plasma screen TVs, leather bottle holders, a wine chiller, monogram hardwood floors, and quite possibly some heavenly angels waiting inside.

Shaquille O’Neil

There may have been many Supermans in your time, but only one Shaq. Who has time for a normal car when you trick out a Hummer H2 with custom-made Superman wheels and the famous superman S symbol on every spoke of the 26-inch wheels?

Who’s the real Superman now?

Green Day

These guys rock and roll and could almost sell tickets to a concert in their car. Green Day’s Mercury Monterey is fully modified with leopard skin seats, a chain steering wheel, a fog machine, and a flamethrower!

Snoop Dog

This rapper knows how to ride with a 1976 Pontiac Parisienne sporting a custom gold and purple LA Lakers paint job with a hood signed by the LA Lakers,  a purple gold zirconium encrusted dashboard, and hydraulics.
