50 Cent spends $1.5m on a one-off ‘jet car’

50 Cent spent seven figures on this jet car but it turned out to be a bad investment as the rapper ended up selling it for less than one tenth of its value.

Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson has owned some crazy cars in his lifetime, including a Ferrari F50 and a Maserati MC12, but nothing quite as mad as the car you see here.

It’s called the ‘White Lightning Jet Car’ and there’s only one in the world.

The inspiration came from Formula 1 cars as well as space vehicles like the Lunar module.

The vehicle was built by the Parker Brothers Concepts, a company that specializes in unconventional prototypes and movie cars.

Fun fact, the Parker Brothers actually worked with NASA to create Mars Rover prototypes.

They also helped build the Erebos X (pictured below), an 835-horsepower supercar inspired by the Mercedes-AMG GT.

From the chassis to the interior, the one-off jet car that 50 Cent commissioned was built entirely from scratch.

In fact, the Parker Brothers were so proud of their creation that they tried to keep the details top secret.

All we know is the concept is powered by an electric powertrain, and it should be capable of delivering around 400 horsepower.

Unfortunately, performance figures were never revealed.

Rumor has it the White Lightning Jet Car can reach 250 mph, but perhaps that sounds a bit far-fetched.

Obviously, as there’s only one in the world, no expense was spared and the rapper reportedly spent $1.55 million to have it built.

Where is 50 Cent now?

50 Cent hasn’t released an album in nearly 10 years and it looks like that’s not going to change anytime soon.

As confirmed in many interviews he’s given, the multi-faceted artist is now focusing on this TV and movie career as an actor and producer.

In 2014, he co-created and produced the crime drama series Power on Starz, in which he also starred in a recurring role.

He’s also expected to star and co-produce The Expendables 4 alongside Andy Garcia, Jason Statham, Sylverster Stallone and Megan Fox.
