Faheem Rashad Najm, with his hugely popular stage name T-Pain, is an American singer and rapper from Tallahassee, Florida. Starting his career back in 1999, the rapper is also widely known for his association with Akon and with his music label, Konvict.

With a successful career spanning more than a couple of decades now, T-Pain has an estimated net worth of $10 million and loves to live life king-size. Apart from his luxurious home, T-Pain has a penchant for cars, both stock and modified.


T-Pain's Be-Loved "Bel-Cord": The 1994 Honda Accord

T-Pain’s 1994 Honda Accord holds a special place in his heart, surpassing even his more extravagant rides like the Ferrari and Rolls Royce. The name comes from the fact that they took a Honda Accord and modeled it after a 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air.

T-Pain’s connection with the Accord began when he visited a shop called Auto Extremes, owned by his team member, Rob Robinson. Rob had previously owned the Honda Accord, and after Rob worked on T-Pain’s car, they instantly became friends. T-Pain eventually became a co-owner of the shop. The Honda Accord marked the beginning of their friendship, making it a truly special car for T-Pain.

The modified Bel-Cord boasts unique features, including specially made one-off wheels and a Nintendo controller-controlled air ride suspension. T-Pain is fiercely protective of the Bel-Cord. He doesn’t show it off at car shows or let many people touch it.

T-Pain's 1969 Chevrolet Impala

The most affordable yet striking car in T-Pain’s garage is a modified 1969 Chevy Impala. While Impalas were known for their classy looks, strong performance, and reliability, T-Pain’s Impala looks nothing like an ordinary one.

The car gets an exclusive Heath Ledger’s Joker theme both inside and out, complete with the character’s figures painted on the outside. Other than that, the car gets massive 22-inch wheels painted in matching green paint while at the front, the Impala gets an abundance of chrome treatment. As one of T-Pain’s favorite rides, the Joker-themed Impala gets to roam around with the rapper behind the wheel.

The Impala is powered by a 5.4-liter V8 engine that gets mated to a 4-speed manual transmission. Despite its age, the motor develops245 hp along with 325 lb-ft of torque. Even though this specific model of the Impala is quite old, still it can run the 0-60mph sprint in under 6 seconds and do a top speed of 130 mph!

Mini Cooper S

The smallest and most unremarkable car in T-Pain’s garage is the small but feisty 2007 Mini Cooper S. While the rapper owns several high-end cars and a few highly-customized ones too, the Cooper S allows him to drive without being noticed on the roads.

Yes, the singer did modify the Cooper S to his liking such as swapping out the stock wheels with aftermarket chrome wheels still, it blends in perfectly in the crowds. The most interesting part is that T-Pain finds the Cooper S’s handling and performance the most among all his cars, strange!

Powertrain1.6-liter turbocharged I-4
Horsepower172 hp
Torque177 lb-ft

The 2007 Mini Cooper S is powered by a small 1.6-liter turbocharged I-4 motor that gets a slick 6-speed manual gearbox. The motor makes 172 horses and 177 lb-ft of torque but the car feels nimble due to its agility and compact size. On a straight line, the Cooper S can do a top speed of 140 mph and complete the 0-60 mph sprint within 6.5 seconds.

T-Pain’s Trail-Ready Warrior: The Jeep Gladiator Mojave

Next up is the Jeep Gladiator Mojave which the rapper uses as a daily driver. In an interview, T-Pain expressed that he uses the Mojave as his regular go-to vehicle such as taking a quick trip to the supermarket or dropping off his wife somewhere.

Moreover, he said the Gladiator is a champ when it comes to tackling bad roads. Like his other cars, T-Pain swapped out the original wheels of the Gladiator with slightly bigger custom wheels with more rugged tires.

The Jeep Gladiator Mojave is powered by a standard and FCA’s staple, 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 that does its duty on other vehicles such as the Dodge Charger and the Chrysler 300. The motor puts out a decent 285 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque and gets a 6-speed manual gearbox which is a nice touch in the current trend of automatics. On a straight line, the pickup truck can hit 60 mph in under 8.5 seconds but has a mediocre top speed of 97 mph only.

Ferrari 488 Spider

T-Pain’s Ferrari 488 Spider is a remarkable sports car that combines power, performance, and open-air exhilaration.

The 488 Spider is part of Ferrari’s illustrious lineage, and it’s no ordinary convertible. In fact, it holds the distinction of being the most powerful series production spider in Ferrari’s history.

T-Pain initially had his 488 Spider in white color, which he seldom drove, and never let anyone go near the driver's seat. However, it was YouTuber Rickey Gradson, who had the fortune of being the first person apart from T-Pain himself to have driven the thing of beauty. T-Pain also recently wrapped his Ferrari 488 Spider with a glossy blue finish. He even uploaded a snippet of "How it started v.s. How it's going" on his TikTok.

T-Pain's Luxury Ride: The Rolls-Royce Phantom

The Rolls-Royce Phantom has been defining luxury for a few decades now and the brand has continued to put in steady efforts to make the car better in every generation. Mostly suited for people who like to be driven around, T-Pain got himself the Phantom, in which he takes a ride sometimes.

Apart from the cushy interior, the car is no slouch in the performance department too and gets a chunky V12 under its long hood as well. At the time of purchase, the Phantom is expected to have cost the rapper around $460,000.

As mentioned earlier, the Phantom gets a massive 6.7-liter V12 that puts out an impressive 453 hp and 531 lb-ft of torque. The saloon gets a standard 8-speed automatic transmission that drives the rear wheels of the car and delivers almost imperceptible shifts. On an empty stretch, the car shoots to 60 mph from a standstill within 5.3 seconds while the top speed is capped at 155 mph.

T-Pain’s Million-Dollar Rocket: The Bugatti Veyron

The Bugatti Veyron held the title of being the fastest and quickest accelerating production car for a few years after its launch. While there have been other hypercars with similar acceleration times and better top speeds but none offered the luxury of the Veyron and the guys at the factory required a gas-guzzling W16 to achieve the impressive feat.

T-Pain gladly added this engineering marvel into his garage and shelled out $2 million as well.

The Veyron gets a massive 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 that puts out a stomach-melting 1001 hp and 922 lb-ft of torque. With a lightning-quick 7-speed DCT unit, the powertrain propels the hypercar to 60 mph from a standstill within 2.5 seconds and can do a top speed of 253 mph with that special top speed key.
