Whether they are luxurious sports cars or classic vintage rides, we want to bring you the most fantastic cars in the basketball world.
Dwyane Wade’s Mercedes SLR McLaren & McLaren 720s Spider
Dwyane Wade spent much of his time in Miami, so he knows the value of an exotic car that would often roll down the strip. He was one of the first owners of the Mercedes SLR McLaren in 2003. This model collaborated between the two brands marrying the McLaren lightweight Mercedes body around a 600hp engine. He must have enjoyed this ride because years later, after his 16-year career, Wade got himself a McLaren 720s as a retirement gift for himself.
Devin Booker’s 1959 Chevy Impala
Devin Booker is known for his collection of classic vintage cars. He made quite the entrance when he arrived at the first NBA finals game in his 1959 Chevy Impala. Named by Devin, Pretty Penny, this Chevy has made quite the statement and ignited conversations on his impressive collection since.
James Harden’s Rolls Royce Wraith
James Harden knows how to define a luxurious car better than most. His two-tone red and black Rolls Royce Wraith lets everyone know who is behind the wheel. The Wraith has a 623 horsepower twin-turbo V12 that effortlessly hauls the 2-ton vehicle from 0 to 60 in 4.4 seconds.
