1. 2020 Mansory Rolls-Royce Phantom 

Drake’s special Mansory Rolls-Royce Phantom is one of a kind. It was customised by Tony Bet. It’s black with Bushukan-yellow details, which is named after a fruit representing happiness and exclusivity in China. Instead of the usual Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament, it has Drake’s OVO owl logo. Some might see it as a flashy move, while others might think it’s cool. Either way, it’s part of Drake’s style. The car can go from 0 to 62 mph in just 4.3 seconds and has a top speed of 173 mph. 

2. 2019 Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Laudaulet 

Drake’s car collection keeps getting more unique, like his Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet. It’s not your typical G-Wagon or G63 version. It even made an appearance in one of his music videos. It is valued at around $1 million, it’s powered by a 6.0-litre twin-turbo V12 engine pumping out 620 horsepower. Despite its hefty weight, it can go from 0 to 60 in just 5.5 seconds, which is pretty impressive for a G-Wagon. It’s a real standout in his collection.

3. 2019 Rolls Royce Dawn

Drake has a Rolls-Royce Dawn, a cool convertible car. It shares the same powerful engine as his Mansory Phantom. This fancy ride is worth around $400,000.

4. 2017 Bentley Mulsanne

Next up is Drake’s Bentley Mulsanne, one of the most massive and luxurious cars in his collection. It’s a 2017 model, sleek in pure black with a lavish wooden and leather interior. Despite its hefty size, this car moves swiftly thanks to its powerful 500-horsepower engine. Plus, with an impressive 750 pound-feet of torque, it’s as capable as it is luxurious. 

5. 2016 Lamborghini Aventador LP700

Returning to supercars, Drake owns a Lamborghini Aventador LP700, specifically the 2016 roadster model. It’s the cream of the crop in Lamborghini’s lineup and has even been featured in one of Drake’s songs. This matte-grey beauty is valued at $500,000 and packs a punch with its naturally aspirated 6.5-litre V12 engine, boasting an impressive 700 horsepower. It’s a real powerhouse.

6. 2015 Mercedes-Maybach S600 Pullman

Next up in Drake’s collection is the Mercedes-Maybach S600 Pullman, a real luxury limousine. It’s like a stretched-out version of the S-Class. Aside from its lavish features, this car also impresses with its performance. Under the hood, there’s a powerful 6.0-litre V12 engine, turbocharged to deliver around 530 horsepower. Plus, with 612 pound-feet of torque, it’s not just luxurious—it’s also got some serious muscle. 

7. 2018 Devel Sixteen 

The Devel Sixteen is a super rare car you might not have heard of before. Made by Devel Motors in the UAE, it’s pretty mind-blowing. It goes from 0 to 60 in just 1.8 seconds and can hit a top speed of almost 350 mph! That’s thanks to its massive 12.3-litre V16 engine with four turbochargers. This beast is valued at $2.2 million, making it Drake’s most expensive ride. With around 5000 horsepower, it’s just insane. But here’s the catch: it’s a track-only car, so there aren’t many of them around, making it super rare.

8. 2010 Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir

Another standout in Drake’s car collection is the Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir. Valued at around $1.8 million, Drake’s version is extra special because only 12 “Sang Noir” editions were ever made. Its price can even soar to over $2 million on the market, and it’s likely to keep going up. This edition rocks a sleek black-on-black look with carbon fibre body parts, giving it a super cool vibe reminiscent of something straight out of a Need for Speed game. Under the hood, it’s powered by an 8.0-liter W16 engine with four turbochargers, packing a whopping 1000 horsepower. With that kind of power, it can zoom from 0 to 60 in just 2.5 seconds. 

9. 2018 Ferrari LaFerrari

Drake’s yellow Ferrari LaFerrari is another rare gem in his collection. With a price tag of around $1 million, its market value goes even higher. This car has appeared in some of his music videos, adding to its cool factor. What makes it special besides its unique yellow colour? Well, it’s the successor to the iconic Ferrari Enzo, for starters. Plus, it’s the first Ferrari to combine a V12 engine with an electric motor. Together, they churn out a massive 950 horsepower from the 6.3-liter engine. It’s a real powerhouse on wheels.

10. 2010 Mercedes Benz SLR-McLaren

Drake’s got a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren in his garage, and it’s a classic. Made in 2003, it’s a convertible version in shiny silver. This beauty is worth $750,000, but its price could climb up to $1 million or more as time goes on. Under the hood, it’s powered by a strong 5.4-litre supercharged V8 engine, packing 617 horsepower. That means it can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds.
