Zapping Autonews story Tour Auto 2020: guided tour of exceptional cars at the Grand Palais
For the real Slim Shady please stand-up! Prepare to see some very, very heavy in his garage. With an estimated fortune of $ 100 million in 2018, there is no doubt that the musician / businessman was able to grow these numbers even further.
So yeah, that's a cliché. What does a rapper buy right away when success grows? Cars. But for our greatest pleasure. We just hope that Eminem has planned to go more than 8 miles with his cars.

A great classic of American sports cars. The story around his Ford GT is quite funny since it was originally the American company that lent him this model to appear in one of his music videos. Publicity stunt guaranteed.
It was without counting on the very divisive side of the character. Once the lyrics, the “Ass like that” music, were revealed, Ford decided to withdraw from the project in order to avoid any bad buzz. A case that did not bother the rapper too much. Indeed, the latter ordered a model of the GT a few days later.

She has almost become a must have for any self-respecting rapper. But here the Slim Shady has pushed the vice to the limit. According to some sources, he would have had to pay $ 530,000 for the car. Indeed, all the requested accessories combined with the 630 horsepower under the hood, it comes at a price.

A car for connoisseurs, Eminem did well to afford the Scuderia version of the F430. Lighter, better designed and, above all, more powerful, this jewel of the Italian firm has the potential to become a true classic of the automotive scene. Its V8 capable of developing 503 horsepower has nothing more to prove either.

The Porsche racing car is an example of power and elegance. And the beautiful even has a small prize list. She held the lap record on the Nürburgring, for a car authorized to travel on the road. 7 minutes and 18 seconds to complete the famous Nordschleife, no wonder when you see its 4 liter engine delivering 500 horsepower at full power.

Another special story around this magnificent Audi. In 2011, the rapper clashed with the German automaker, criticizing them for using his music “Lose Yourself” in one of their commercials without asking his consent. Problem solved quite quickly finally. The "Rap God" became the proud owner of this Audi R8 Spyder, kindly donated by the German firm, surely to fix the mess.
You've discovered the Slim Shady's finest cars, but there are more in his garage. Including a Porsche 996 Turbo, Carrera GT, a Ferrari 575M Maranello, a Ferrari 599 GTO, an Aston Martin V8 Vantage and a McLaren MP4-12C.
