Chris Paul is widely regarded as one of the greatest point guards in NBA history. Paul made his debut with the New Orleans Hornets (now the New Orleans Pelicans) in the 2005-2006 NBA season and was nothing short of sensational, as he earned the NBA Rookie of the Year award while displaying exceptional court vision, passing skills, and defensive prowess. Since then, Paul has played for four other teams and has made an instant impact with each and every single team, helping them make deep playoff runs as well. At the same time, Paul solidified his status as a premier playmaker, floor general, and juggernaut on the defensive end, having led the league in assists and steals five times and a league record six times, respectively. He has yet to win an NBA championship, though, with his deepest playoff run coming in 2021 when he reached the Finals with the Phoenix Suns alongside All-Star player Devin Booker. Paul is now a member of the Golden State Warriors and is teammates with other All-Star players like Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green, so the coming season might be his best chance to win a ring.

 

Chris Paul is one of the highest-earnings players of all time in the NBA, having earned $359 million over the course of his career. This has helped him reach a net worth of $160 million, which in turn has helped him own a slew of luxury cars. Chris Paul has a wide variety of interests when it comes to cars, and his interests range from classics like the 1977 Monte Carlo with a custom hood to an elegant Mercedes-Maybach S680. He also has a thing for SUVs, as he owns a Cadillac Escalade and a Jeep JKU Wrangler Unlimited, both significant and well-known powerhouses with a hint of luxury sprinkled on top. He also has a 1971 Chevrolet C-10, which personified the West Coast in the 1970s. Coming to speed, he also has a beautiful Ferrari 458 Italia, which is again an icon by itself with a quick and powerful engine along with the signature Ferrari look. So without further ado, here is a look at Chris Paul's car collection. 


6. Chevrolet C-10

Chris Paul's Chevrolet C-10

The 1971 Chevrolet C-10 owned by Paul is one of the best-known pickup trucks of its era, with a flamboyant style and a sophisticated aura around it. Although not the most powerful version of itself, the 1971 C-10 comes with a certain charm that its younger iterations weren’t fond of. Some speculate that is why Chris likes it so much, although we haven’t seen him use it much. It personifies Americana, and its parts are still widely available, which makes it a good catch for almost anybody in the market for a pickup truck with an iconic style and fanfare.

Although it comes with a plethora of engine options, the special 6.6-liter V8 is a monstrous engine with incredible power and powerful acceleration to go along with it. The 4-speed manual also helps it achieve smooth and refined acceleration, and the horsepower output may look timid now, but during its era, it was one of the best available.

5. Chevrolet Monte Carlo 

Chris Paul's Chevrolet Monte Carlo 

The 1977 Chevrolet Monte Carlo is one of Paul’s most loved cars, and he has been seen showing it off on YouTube. Chris’ choice was to go with a modified hood and sleek rims, which make it pop and give the car a really west coast vibe. Chris reportedly only paid $1,300 for the car and then spent considerably more modifying it; the inside also has a miniature basketball court that looks pristine. The wooden interior scheme and the sleek chrome accents made it a classic even before Chevy started perfecting the Monte Carlo formula with later iterations. The car would be discontinued in 2007, but by then, it had lost all of its visual aesthetics that made it special.

With a significantly powerful 5.0-liter V-8 engine, the 1977 Chevrolet Monte Carlo has nimble acceleration, going from 0 to 60 in 13.3 seconds, and a top speed of 112 mph. It is not the quickest, and neither did it try to be when it was around.

4. Jeep JKU Wrangler Unlimited

Chris Paul's Jeep JKU Wrangler Unlimited

Although a flawed car, the 2014 Jeep JKU Wrangler Unlimited owned by Paul is still a viable option for good, windy roads with nimble and agile handling and a relatively powerful engine. The interior, on the other hand, is spectacular and a huge boost over the regular Wrangler. It still carries its legendary off-road performance, but in the most contemporary package possible. It still remains a family-friendly option with an eye for struggle, which makes it popular to this day. Its legendary history may have taken a back seat to its new identity, but rest assured, it is still a beast on the road and off of it.

3. Cadillac Escalade

The Cadillac Escalade owned by Chris Paul is considered by him to be one of the worst financial decisions of his life. He had his pearl-colored Escalade customized with SPRI wheels, which he considered to be beautiful but more of a hassle to use than they were worth. He and his wife still have an Escalade, but it's safe to say the flamboyant upgrades are not part of it. The SUV has one of the roomiest cabins in its class and a huge cargo compartment in terms of practicality. The Cool-looking digital cockpit interface is also a plus, along with the standard Cadillac cutting-edge tech that comes with it.

2. Mercedes-Maybach S680

The Mercedes-Maybach S680 is the most luxurious S-Class on offer by Mercedes and contains the legendary Maybach name behind it. It shows in the unmatched ride quality, supreme and elegant design, and smooth shifting transmission that make driving it a pleasure, along with being driven in one. The insane and impressively complex twin-turbocharged V-12 gives it quick acceleration as well as a high top speed to go along with the supreme luxury that the S680 champions. The cutting-edge tech also makes the car useful, as it has a long wheelbase and air suspensions that shift up and down depending on road conditions.

1. Ferrari 458 Italia 

Chris Paul's Ferrari 458 Italia 

The Ferrari 458 Italia is one of the most iconic sports cars of all time, and Paul’s choice to own one makes a lot of sense. It's quick, nimble, and has an iconic look that separates it from the rest of the premium cars on this list and in general. Chris’ 2012 458 Italia has world-class handling, breakneck performance and acceleration, a smooth shifting transmission, and the resilient and top-notch build quality that Ferrari is known for. It is also highly customizable, which adds to its capability to be personalized and curated for every person who owns one.
