50 Cent Blows $1.5M On One-Of-A-Kind ‘Jet Car’
50 Cent has always been about his money, and he’s added a rare “one of a kind” car to his fleet of exotic whips.
According to SuperCarBlondie, 50 (aka Ferrari) bought the White Lightning Jet Car – which was inspired by Formula 1, designed by Parker Brothers and built from scratch – for $1.5 million.
The sports car can reportedly pack over 400 horsepower and reach a potential 250 MPH on the road.
50 has long been a car enthusiast and he’s given plenty of heat from his collection at DJ Envy’s car shows in the past, and he’ll be sending some more to the radio host’s Memphis car show this weekend.
While he has mellowed out on the lavish gifts front, the 50-year-old admitted in February that he was a bit more crazy earlier in his career.
“The things that they see that I’ve learned have kept me out of trouble at some points,” he explained to Ari Melber. “The things I was saying in the music in the beginning, I was crazy to tell you the truth, Ari. I was absolutely mad at that point.”
Maybe 50 can pull up to Barclays Center in the $1.5 million White Lightning jet when he hits the Brooklyn stage on his Final Lap tour in August.
Celebrating the 20th anniversary of 50 Cent’s debut album, Get Rich or Die Tryin’, the Final Lap Tour kicks off July 21 in Salt Lake City, Utah and travels across North America through September 22, making stops in cities such like Toronto, Atlanta. , Houston, Los Angeles, Chicago, Detroit and the 50s birthplace of New York City.

The European leg kicks off a little later on September 28th and includes shows in the Netherlands, Germany, France, Italy and the UK, finishing on November 18th. Busta Rhymes will join Fifi on the road, along with Jeremih for the North American dates.
Earlier this week, 50 took a moment to chat with his fans on Instagram Live, where he revealed that he sold over 500,000 tickets in seven days and hinted that the tour was his last.
“Because the ticket sales are going so well, they’re adding new markets, so the UK, North America and maybe Australia will be there,” said 50. “I have to go to Africa. Got a lot of spots I need to hit before I’m done because this is the Final Lap Tour.
“I will not run like this again. I’ve got my film and TV stuff to do and I’ve got a lot of other stuff going on behind the scenes to work on so I won’t be out on tour as much as I’ve been on tour…I’m having fun this time because it is designed to enjoy ourselves, we feel no pressure.”
