Travis Scott Treats Himself to New $5.5 Million Bugatti Chiron Super Sport

In showbiz today, you can’t really say you’ve “made it” unless you have an impressive car collection to show for it. Rapper Travis Scott has definitely made it.

Jacques Bermon Webster II, best known as Travis Scott, is one of the most popular rap artists of the moment, even with the cloud of controversy and outrage still hanging over him, over the tragic events at his Astroworld festival in November 2021, when 10 people died as he was performing live on stage. Since then, Scott has been keeping a very low profile: as an organizer, whatever accident happens at a music event is his responsibility, so he’s been sued for many millions by the victims’ families.

Over the past few weeks, Scott has been slowly working his way towards a public comeback, and that includes papped and paid appearances, business deals and, according to TMZ, a new lavish automotive gift to boast about on social media. Scott just took delivery of a Bugatti Chiron Super Sport, which retails for a whopping $5.5 million – if you can find one unit available, because all 30 made are spoken for.

Never underestimate the power of money and of an A-list celebrity name, we guess. As hard as a Super Sport might be to come by, Scott got his. He also showed a glimpse of it on social media, of the dark blue interior, without saying anything of the purchase – a very subtle kind of brag, but a brag nonetheless.

Scott’s net worth is estimated at $65 million as of the time of press, and a big chunk of it is tied up in his collection of exotics. He owns at least another, older Chiron that he got as a present from Kylie Jenner in 2020, several Ferraris, including an off-white Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta and a neon SF90 Stradale, Rolls-Royces, Maybachs, and several Lamborghinis.

He once said he couldn’t name all the cars in his garage(s), and that maybe had to do with his viewing them as “extensions” of himself through which he could express himself artistically. A very rich way of looking at life, indeed. “I’m into design and colors and the vibes that a car can give you,” he said. “I guess you could say cars are like a pair of sneakers in the way that they relate to you and your current sense of style. The cool thing is that certain cars give off certain auras, but you can create those auras for the car, too.”

As outrage is bubbling up on social media, because Scott is on the hook in the $750 million Astroworld lawsuit, we’ll just say this: of all the ways to express yourself, a 300 mph (490.5 kph), 1,578 HP Chiron Super Sport is not the worst.
