Being one of the richest female musicians with a net worth of $600 million, it’s safe to say that Rihanna has become accustomed to a life of luxury. That wasn’t always the case though.
Coming from humble means, the Barbadian native once found lavish gifts and things new to her. This was certainly the case when she was gifted with a $160,000 Porsche by her own label in 2012.
As you can expect, Rihanna was excited about the fancy present and even posted about it on her Instagram at the time.
The Porsche sports car boasts of having the ability to go from 0 to 60 mph in 2.7 seconds making it faster than the other luxury vehicles of its kind. It’s equipped with a 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine.
The car retailed for around $160,000 at the time. However, Roc Nation most likely spent more than that as they added personal touches to the vehicle.
Big Career Move
If you’ve been following Rihanna since her early career, then you’d know just how significant her decision to sign on to Roc Nation was.
Already a big star, the ‘What’s My Name?’ singer was originally under Def Jam Records and was enjoying success under the label, which Jay Z also used to work for. The rapper eventually set out to put up his own company though in 2008 and soon Rihanna came on board as well.
Roc Nation was initially just managing the singer’s career. However, she signed on fully under the label in 2014 and remains with the company until today.
Although Rihanna showed immense appreciation of Jay-Z’s gift, the musician turned business mogul isn’t actually a big fan of fancy cars. She does like giving them away as presents to her loved ones though.
Back in 2013, she reportedly gifted her then-boyfriend Chris Brown a Mercedes-Benz SLR Stirling Moss. The vehicle cost Rihanna $1 million as it was a rare find as the German automaker only made 75 of it.
The Stirling Moss has a 5.4-liter engine and can go as fast as 217 mph.
