Birdman Purchases $8 Million German Sports Car
Brian "Birdman" Williams wasn't kidding when he released the song 'Money to Blow.' The Cash Money label head just dropped nearly $8 million on a Mercedes Maybach Exelero.
The luxury vehicle comes in at a whopping $7.8 million, a drop in the bucket for Birdman, whose net worth is estimated to be $100 million. "8million 0n a whip all red.blievetht.custom made.ymcmb," the New Orleans native tweeted, alongside a picture of his new ride, earlier this week.
Fitted with a v12 twin turbo engine, and accelerating to a top speed of 218 MPH, the high performance German sports car has only been on the market since 2005. Created by manufacturer Fulda Reifenwerke, the Exelero was originally introduced as a reference vehicle for a newly developed brand of tires. The model's futuristic, yet sleek, design was constructed as an ode to the 1930 German streamlined sports car.
Birdman is no stranger to spending tons of money on cars. His collection also includes a $2.1 million Bugatti Veyron, which he purchased in August of 2010.
