If there’s one thing Curtis Jackson, aka 50 Cent, loves it’s his cars.
The award-winning rapper and songwriter, who has also successfully entered the world of writing and producing movies, owns a stable of spectacular cars.
From a Maserati MC12 to a Lamborghini Murcielago and a Ferrari FF, 50’s not shy when it comes to spending money on rides – but which of his cars is the rarest and most valuable?

That award goes to the White Lightening Jet Car, as there’s only one in the world and it set him back seven figures.
The White Lightening Jet Car draws inspiration 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 402 km/h (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.
However, it turned out to be a bad investment, as in the end 50 Cent sold it for less than one tenth of its value.
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.
50 Cent also stars in Expend4bles alongside Andy Garcia, Jason Statham, Sylvester Stallone and Megan Fox.
