Now that is an incredible three-car answer.
Ever since Beyoncé Knowles-Carter launched her self-titled album with out warning in the midst of the night time in December 2013, I’ve had put up notifications turned on for her Instagram. The “Beyoncé made a brand new put up” pop-up makes my coronary heart pound each time, as a result of though the overwhelming majority of her posts are photograph carousels of the billionaire pop star displaying off her newest outfit or model collaboration, you by no means know when the queen is gonna drop a brand new music video or announce a being pregnant. On Sunday night Beyoncé posted a photograph set of her look from the Tremendous Bowl, however what I instantly targeted on have been the automobiles within the background: Bey’s acquired a Lamborghini LM002!
In two of the images within the Instagram carousel Beyoncé is posing exterior the $88 million home within the Bel-Air neighborhood of Los Angeles she shares with husband Jay-Z. She’s standing on a brick driveway in entrance of a wonderful black marble automobile port, with lovely landscaping and a sculpture seen within the background. However clearly we’re right here for the automobiles. Parked in a line are a white Lamborghini LM002, a white Mercedes SL, and an icy inexperienced Chevrolet El Camino. That is a three-car answer for the ages, however the Lambo is an particularly cool and considerably stunning alternative.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z truly featured an LM002 of their music video for “Apesh*t” in 2018, however I assumed it was simply on mortgage from Lamborghini due to the LM002 license plate on the entrance. However the white-over-red LM002 in Bey’s Instagram shot seems to be similar to the one within the video (it is even nonetheless acquired the plate), so both the couple used their very own Lambo SUV within the video or they favored it sufficient to purchase it afterward. One among simply 328 produced from 1986 to 1993, the LM002 is mainly a army SUV fitted with the V12 from the Countach supercar. It is a huge beast of a automobile, and never one you usually see pushed by celebs. However Bey is not the one high-profile diva that is owned one — Tina Turner had an LM002 that she modified to have a Mercedes V8 with an computerized transmission, and the inside acquired a leather-based booster cushion for the motive force’s seat so the 5-foot-4-inch rock star may extra simply drive it.
Regardless of being two of the most important stars on the planet the Carters are tremendous non-public, so it is uncommon to even see paparazzi images of the duo exterior of main occasions they attend and we sadly do not know a lot about what automobiles they personal. However Beyoncé’s been caught using in her Pagoda SL by paparazzi, and he or she’s posted images of herself posing on the hood earlier than. It is a stylish spec, completed in white with darkish hubcaps. That El Camino is recognizable too, because it appears to be the identical one featured in her 2016 music video for “Formation,” for which she gained considered one of her 28 Grammy awards. Once more, I do not know whether or not Beyoncé already owned the pickup earlier than it was used within the video or if she purchased it after the very fact, however it’s superior both means.
The LM002 was featured within the “Apesh*t” music video.
Different automobiles of their assortment embrace a Fiat 850 Spider, a 1959 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II drophead, a closely done-up Mercedes Sprinter, a 1960’s Alfa Romeo Spider and a late-model C1 Chevy Corvette. Jay-Z apparently owned a Pagani Zonda F at one level (it even featured in considered one of his movies), and Beyoncé was stated to have purchased him a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport for his 41st birthday. Unconfirmed rumors stated Jay-Z spent $eight million on the one-off Maybach Exelero idea, although that does not appear to have truly ever occurred, and when the primary Rolls-Royce Boat Tail was unveiled final 12 months it was broadly reported that the couple had dropped eight figures on it, although that additionally appears to be unfaithful.
