Travis Barker’s garage was once filled with his beloved Cadillacs. However, he ended up putting them for auction. He ended up selling three cars at once at the Scottsdale 2020 auction organized by Barret-Jackson.

However, the Travis Barker car collection does include his dream car, the 1987 GNX which was given to him as a gift from Kourtney Kardashian. What more? Barker also owns the Escalade, the LaFerrai, and the Urus. Meanwhile, he is also associated with a red Chevrolet Corvette but has never been photographed with it.

On his 46th birthday, Kourtney Kardashian gifted her then-boyfriend Travis Barker his dream car, the 1987 Buick GNX. He even posted a picture on Instagram with the car and captioned "You can keep your Ferraris and Lambos ✌️". Irony is that, he did own and most probably still own a Ferrari and a Lamborghini himself. Besides that, Kourtney likely bought the GNX from the Fusion Motor Company.

7. Cadillac Escalade Dub Edition

Travis Barker owns the 2007 Cadillac Escalade Dub Edition which was specially customized for him. He appeared with this Escalade on DUB Magzine's cover as well. Barker's Escalade received a Borla performance exhaust system, 6-inch Pirelli tires and 26-inch TIS brand wheels, DUB chrome emblems, and a few other things under the Dub Edition package. Having said that, it has also been reported that Travis owns a black 2015 Cadillac Escalade.

6. Lamborghini Urus

The only Lamborghini that is in Travis Barker's car collection is the black Urus SUV. In 2021, Barker posted a picture of himself with the Urus. Although the exact specs and model year of the car have not been revealed, the date of the post suggests that he owns the 2021 Urus model which came with single-trim specs.

The base price of the 2021 Lamborghini Urus SUV was $218,009. The SUV is powered by a twin-turbo V8 which pushes up to 641 horsepower. It runs on standard 21-inch alloy wheels and crosses the 60 MPH mark in 3.1 seconds. That being said, the Urus can also be ordered with the Off-Road Package worth $3,827.


5. Ferrari LaFerrari

In 2020, Kourtney Kardashian's husband posted a video of himself with a yellow LaFerrari on his Instagram. He captioned it with "Ridin’ in 🚀🚀🚀" and tagged "@wiresonly @fog.again". However, on the street and various other occasions, Travis has been hardly captured with this Ferrari. It is possible that Barker sold his LaFerrari but reports are yet to confirm this.

The total output of this mild hybrid Ferrari was around 949 horsepower. However, the V12 engine alone made 789 horsepower.


4. Porsche Tycan Turbo S

In 2021, Travis Scott and Kenny Hoopla collaborated with Porsche to promote their latest release "Survivors Guilt: The Mixtape" and became part of a video series where they tested the Porsche Taycan Turbo's sound, speakers, and other things. Furthermore, it has been reported by Supercar Blondie and other sources that the famous drummer has the Taycan Turbo S model.

3. Mercedes-Benz G550 4x4 Squared

The Mercedes G550 4x4 Squared is a customized variant of the Mercedes-Benz G550 with portal gear axles and much larger wheels to increase the ground clearance which would aid in passing over almost everything. Travis is quite possessive of his G-Wagon as he was recorded confronting a teenager in 2022 when the boy was admiring the car and taking pictures of it.

In 2023, he also bought two Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon. Each was for his two kids: Landon Baker and Alabama Baker. Alabama even posted a picture of the black G-Wagon with a red ribbon on the car on her Instagram.

The 2018 Mercedes G550 4x4 squared had a base price of $227,300 which is quite high compared to the regular G550 version which was offered for $123,600. The custom wagon is powered by a twin-turbo V8 which makes 416 horsepower. It allowed towing loads up to 7,000 pounds.


2. Rolls Royce Wraith

Travis Barker's Wraith has a confusing history. He used to own the Rolls-Royce Black Badge Wraith until it was stolen. It got little media attention but it did show up in Grant Van Brewer's ownership who is the current brand ambassador of Hennessy Porsche. However, in 2014, Autoevolution reported that the Blinker 182 rock band member got his Wraith fully customized by the Platinum Group auto shop.

This creates a conflict. Since Black Badge package on Wraith was officially introduced in the 2017 model year. Hence, it is either that it was a misreporting or Travis bought another Wraith with the Black Badge specs.

Powertrain6.6L Twin-Turbo V12
Horsepower624 hp
Torque642 lb-ft
Transmission8-speed automatic
0-60 MPH4.4 seconds
Top Speed155 MPH

Travis Barker's Wraith Black Badge likely belonged to the 2017 model year since this is what has been referenced in the VINwiki YouTube channel's video by Grant Van Brewer. It makes Autoevolution's claim somewhat questionable. That said, the base price of the 2017 Wraith Black Badge was around $360,700.


1. Rolls Royce Cullinan

One of the two Rolls-Royces reported to be in Travis Barker's garage is the blacked-out Cullinan SUV. He has been spotted driving the car with Kourtney Kardashian in the passenger seat. Barker goes to pick up his daughter from her school and other routines in the Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUV.

The model year of the car is not public yet. However, given that reports of Travis Barker with the cargo as far back as 2021, we believe he bought the car either in 2019 which was the launch model year of Cullinan, or a year or two later. That being said, the base price of a 2021 Cullinan SUV was $335,000. Meanwhile, the more powerful and expensive Black Badge version was priced at $388,000.
