Expert advice on car parts, maintenance, and repair.
If you are a fan of good pop music, The Weeknd is one of the top performers and his awards prove it. The popular Canadian singer and songwriter have also accomplished himself through his amazing performance during the LV Super Bowl halftime show. We already know that he prefers dating models, but you may not know about all the luxurious car models in his garage.
So, we wanted to help you uncover the juicy details behind The Weeknd’s car collection and get to know the star a bit better, at least when it comes to his vehicle preferences.
The first clue you need to know about The Weeknd’s car collection is that he knows his stuff when picking up his cars. We can confirm this by his magnificent McLaren P1, a car that’s one of only 439 units ever produced by the famous performance car brand.
The P1 started in 2012 as one of the holly trinity of hypercars that also includes the LaFerrari and Porsche 918. While only nuances make a difference between these amazing cars, the P1 features that signature McLaren design coupled with a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 that puts out 900 horsepower. Of course, the car also has an electric motor to achieve such immense power and a 0 to 60 time of just 2.7 seconds, and we have to admire The Weeknd’s choice with this one.
While the McLaren P1 is certainly a one-of-a-kind ride, the next pick on The Weeknd’s car list is almost just as impressive. It’s his Lamborghini Aventador SVJ, the special version of the Aventador which comes with a refined and improved interior, exterior, and higher power output.
The car comes with 770 horsepower and a 0 to 60 acceleration in 2.7 seconds, while the carbon fiber exterior additions make it seem super angry. The car is also lighter than the regular Aventador, and the limited edition SVJ is getting more and more demand, which makes this car sort of an investment made by the famous singer. Plus, the naturally-aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine makes a wonderful noise which we don’t think The Weeknd can stay immune to.
The next car on our list is yet another special and limited edition ride, but this time it’s not a super fast sporty two-seater. Instead, the Mercedes-Benz G650 Landaulet is a full-fledged off-road weapon that’s not even a regular SUV, but more of a truck-styled version of the G-Class.
It also comes with a twin-turbo 6.0-liter V12 engine and puts out 630 horsepower, making it the most impressive version of the G-Wagon. To make things even more mind-blowing, The Weeknd has the privilege of owning just one of 99 units ever produced, making the car even more special.
This time we’ve got something different from The Weeknd’s garage and it’s Bentley’s former flagship sedan model – the Mulsanne. The black Bentley Mulsanne has been in the singer’s car collection for years now and he doesn’t seem to like the car any less as it ages.
Of course, that’s also thanks to the signature Bentley design and it has the 6.75-liter twin-turbo V8 engine under the hood. It’s a Phantom-level luxury sedan and it’s no wonder that The Weeknd decided to add this one to his car collection.
If you are a car guy, you probably assume that there’s a Porsche Carrera 911 in every celebrity’s collection. The 911 sure found its way into The Weeknd’s garage, but it’s the vintage 1977 Porsche 911 Turbo, the 930 model. This car started it all for some Porsche cars thanks to the 3.0-liter air-cooled flat-six engine with 300 horsepower. At that time, it was the fastest production car among German cars and one of the fastest cars in the world.
Still, the white mint-condition 911 Turbo owned by the singer looks just as impressive as a modern 911 Carrera, and perhaps even more impressive if you are into the all-time classics.
To finish our tour through The Weeknd’s car collection, we have one of his favorite daily rides – the Mercedes-Benz AMG GTC. This two-seater is the second installment in the AMG models by Mercedes that stand by the AMG nameplate as the brand. This one is also sort of a successor to the already classic SLS AMG model and it’s one of the best-looking two-seater GT cars that money can buy these days.
The Weeknd surely has plenty of diversity in his car collection and in our opinion, the impressive GTC with a 523-horsepower 4.0-liter turbocharged engine makes a cherry on top of it.
