What do wealthy celebrities buy their husbands? How about a $2 million car? That's what Beyonce bought her husband, Jay-Z, for his 41st birthday.
The Bugatti Veyron is the fastest street-legal car in the world, and can travel 255mph. The car can go from 0 to 60mph in 2.5 seconds. The car Beyonce purchased for Jay-Z is a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport, and she had to order it a year ago, The Sun reports.
Singer Beyonce bought her rapper husband Jay-Z a Bugatti Veyron, like the one pictured here, for his 41st birthday.
If Beyonce took an auto loan out on the $2 million Bugatti Veyron, her monthly payments would cost $40,394. Yes, that is more than some people's entire annual salary. The down payment alone on the 6 percent, 48-month car loan would be a staggering $400,000, which is more than most homes cost. Even the sales tax at a rate of 6 percent would cost Beyonce $135,273, or the cost of a reasonably-priced starter home.
Jay-Z already reportedly has a Maybach 62S, Ferrari F430 Spider and Pagani Zonda Roadster, among others. One of Beyonce's cars is reportedly a half-million dollar Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren.
The power couple earned a combined $90 million from June 2008 to June 2009, The Sun reports, so the cost of the Bugatti is really no big deal for the superstar singer.
