Pharrell Williams once owned a Bentley but got rid of it as he didn’t like the feel of it. The music prodigy, however, owns several classic sportscars and uber-luxury vehicles. He has almost everything in his garage - from gas-guzzling roadsters to electric pickup trucks. Sadly, Pharrell has yet to add his dream car to his collection. 


7. GMC Yukon Hybrid

Possessing a Hybrid SUV tells us that a superstar like Pharrell Williams is not all about owning luxury cars or vehicles with high aesthetic value. The recent trend towards electric and hybrid vehicles is understandable but Pharrell buying a GMC Yukon Hybrid in the late 2010s proves why he is a trend-setter.

I've just ordered a hybrid Yukon. You gotta do it.

The Hybrid version of the Yukon was in production for only 6 years but the SUV put extra attention to safety aspects making it a priority among customers. He takes the black Yukon to many of his live performances in the country and Pharrell has been spotted driving around the town with this SUV, confirming that he uses this vehicle as his daily driver as well. 


6. Tesla Cybertruck

Pharrell Williams has been cruising in his Cybertruck since 2019 while you are either undecided on the Tesla or crying about the celebrities getting the delivery before you. That’s right, the rapper is among the very first people to get their hands on the pickup that looks like it has arrived from a different planet.

Pharrell has often been spotted with the most-hyped Tesla car and the most popular instance was in Miami. The record producer was seen trying to park his Cybertruck in front of the Louis Vuitton store in Miami Design District. He almost scratched another car in an attempt to fit between two parked cars and ultimately decided to hand over the fate of the Tesla pickup to a Valet. 


5. Rolls-Royce Phantom VII

Williams has been a Rolls-Royce fan even before he actually bought one. The singer-songwriter is a proud owner of a Rolls-Royce Phantom VII and it’s one of the earliest productions. He loves his black Phantom so much that it was even featured in Snoop Dogg’s music video "Drop It Like It's Hot".

The musician and businessman used to speak highly not because he has two Rolls-Royce models but how the brand stood for its class and uniqueness. He admits that the only good part about those cars is that they are still Rolls-Royce but the way almost every celebrity, especially rappers show off their Rolls, it’s losing its uniqueness. 

Turn on MTV now and every rapper has one (a Rolls-Royce). They're kind of ubiquitous.


4. Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren

Pharell Williams stated in a social media post that his auction house is about letting go of the past but his Mercede-Benz SLR McLaren is probably the only car that will never go under the hammer. It is hands down his most favorite car, and the Grammy winner has never passed an opportunity to pose with the roadster.

Although the American singer thinks that McLarens don’t hold their value compared to some other supercars, the fact that the SLR was joint manufactured by Mercedes, holds a special place in his heart. In fact, it’s not just his silver SLR, he loves the SLR McLaren in general and even posted a photo with a black model that he found parked near his workplace. 

The McLaren Mercedes is my favorite because it handles like an S-Class when you want it to, but it is, in fact, an F1 car. It's a supercar you can use every day.


3. Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe

For most people, the main difference between a Rolls-Royce Phantom and a Drophead Coupe is the convertible roof. Pharrell Williams distinguishes the two on a very different term. The Phantom that we already listed above is his choice of car to be chauffeured in and he almost always hands over the keys to someone else. The Drophead Coupe, however, is the one that he likes to drive around.

The combination of uber-luxury features and the thrill of feeling the air on his face while cruising in the convertible is the best aspect of the Rolls-Royce Phantom DHC for Williams. He arrives in style wherever he goes, and the overall experience satisfies him to a level that he could never have with his now-sold Bentley. 


2. 2003 Ferrari Enzo

The Ferrari Enzo is another of Pharrell’s favorite vehicles from his collection and he is a fan of its driving experience. Not just from his own garage, he prefers the Enzo over many other supercars which he reportedly spent around $2 million for. The original sticker of the Enzo sits way lower but Williams probably sprayed all that money to bypass Ferrari’s rule of purchasing 2 other Ferrari models before buying the Enzo.

Pharrell said he loves driving the Ferrari but it has to be in racecar mode for him to ensure the right feel. He took a slight diss at McLarens stating the fact that the Enzo still holds its value. However, the only downside of the Ferrari is that it has no radio which means he can’t groove to the tunes while he drives. 

It's so fast, it's like being in a spaceship or a stealth bomber.


1. Porsche 550 Spyder

The most eccentric vehicle in Pharrell Williams’ car collection is his Porsche 550 Spyder. The specific roadster from the mid-1950s has high significant value and the fact that only 90 pieces of the automobile were ever made makes it more special. However, Pharrell was not happy with 1/90 and to make it unique, he had his friend wrap the Porsche.

Artist KAWS has done a wonderful job with the 550 painting it with a weird but funky style. The bluish-silver exterior has brown clouds with eyes making it a 1/1 Porsche 550 Spyder. Williams is an artist who adds extra hip to hip-hop so this offbeat wrap on his roadster looks extra cool and when he flaunts it accompanied by Snoop Dogg, that is a sight you shouldn’t miss. 


Bonus: Bugatti Veyron is his favorite

Pharrell Williams is passionate about cars but the music producer has admitted that his garage is still incomplete. When asked about his dream car, Pharrell spontaneously mentioned the Bugatti Veyron. Supercars have a special place in his heart but he hasn’t managed to book the Veyron for himself. 

I love the Bugatti Veyron. I know they unveiled it too quickly and they probably don't hold their value as well as the Enzo, but I love the exterior. It's something special. And there's that top speed.


Auction House Joopiter

Pharrell Williams’ passion for cars goes beyond the ones that he owns as he has his own auction house. Jupiter is much more than about used cars being handed over to new users, it is about experimenting with things from a whole new perspective. He connected with different celebrities who had classic cars sitting in their garages and doing nothing but collecting dust. 

He convinced people to get rid of them to make room for newer ones and recently we saw the West Village street completely shut down for his auction house. Joopiter gathered cars from the 80s and 90s, not the mass-produced ones but the real one-of-a-kind gems. All those classic automobiles were up for bidding and big names like Michael Strahan, Scarr Pimentel, and Ojas’ Devon Turnbull among many others took part in the digital auction.
