1957 Chevrolet Impala

This choice shows that the big man has a soft corner for the classics. This fully restored convertible has been painted purple along with white accents. The big wheels with purple accents are bound to grab anybody’s attention.

Kia K900

It was a surprise to many people when LeBron become Kia’s ambassador many years ago. However, it worked very well for the company’s brand awareness. In fact, LeBron had this car even before he partnered up with them.

Chevrolet Camero SS

This is a car that James has customized to make it look even better. He did not leave it completely stock and added large white wheels to compliment the body.

Even other trim pieces have been painted completely white, except for the Chevrolet logo, which has been painted pitch black to make sure it pops out.

Lamborghini Aventador Roadster

This is the most expensive car any NBA player owns. If customize to liking was a thing, this would be it. Since he is Nike’s biggest spokesman, he got the car to match the star’s very special LeBron James X1 “King’s Pride” floral shoes. The whole point is for everyone to know that this car belongs to LeBron James.

Mercedes-Maybach 57 S

This may be one of James’ low-key purchases, but the best part about it is the license plate. It actually reads “KNG OF OH,” which is a tribute to the time he played for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Ferrari 458 Spider

This collection would be incomplete without a Ferrari in it. In fact, this red sports car isn’t the only Ferrari in his collection. There is also a Ferrari F430 Spider. These will definitely not let him drive around unnoticed. It is a Ferrari, after all.
