A little while back we showed you Tupac's Hummer H1 that was going up for auction, and were very curious how much it would end up selling for. The original estimates from the auction house were $100,000+ which is an easy way of saying "we have no idea, but we can assume a lot". Well they weren't wrong as the final winning bid came in at a staggering $337,144.50! Clean low milage Hummer H1s have held their value quite well and add on the famous owner with a prominent following and it's easy to understand why it sold so well. It wouldn't be the first car we would buy for that kind of money, but it would definitely be on our short list!

A few days ago we showed you Cam Newton's custom 1970 Oldsmobile 442, only to be informed by a helpful reader that he also just picked up a new Ferrari F12 from Lamborghini Newport Beach! Cam opted to have the whole car wrapped in a paint protectant film before taking possession of it. Certainly a respectable and appropriate ride for someone like him!
Thanks John for the tip!
In a recent post on Bill Gates' blog, he spent some time chatting with the author of one of his new favorite books while cruising around in a gorgeous blue Tesla Model X! The two spent the day chatting about the book, getting some burgers, and showing off the Model X on a beautiful Seattle day! They recorded the whole thing on a VR camera too which makes for a fairly entertaining viewing experience. We don't know if this is Bills Model X, but we know he loves technologically advanced cars (and obviously technology in general), so we wouldn't be surprised if he picked one up.

T.I. has had one sick collection of cars for as long as we can remember! He seems to be on a matte color scheme kick though as he recently posted himself posing with a Mercedes G-Wagon and GMC Yukon Denali, both with a menacing matte color scheme. The G-Wagon is featuring a army inspired matte green color scheme paying homage to its military roots, while the GMC Yukon Denali has a classic matte black look.
Which would you guys choose? The matte green Mercedes G-Wagon or murdered out GMC Yukon Denali ?
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has never been a subtle individual. From dabbing to crazy fashion choices, he sure isn't afraid to stand out! So naturally his ride of choice is no different. Cam opted for the guys at Monster Customs in Atlanta to build him a crazy custom black and gold 1970 Oldsmobile 442!! A black body with gold Forgiato wheels, gold bumpers, and gold accents throughout make for one menacing machine. It's hard not to miss the Panthers logo and his initials on the front grille too! He might not have a Superbowl ring, but he does have one sick new ride!
Thanks Ken for the tip!
