Celebrities have money to spare, and for many that excess cash goes toward the finer things in life: designer clothes, gorgeous houses, and the craziest cars you’ve ever seen. Regular drivers may never have the means to afford a tricked out roadster or a souped up classic, but you can still admire them. Of course, you have to decide whether the craziest celebrity cars are cool or just way too over the top.

Justin Bieber’s Chromed Out Karma

Justin Bieber is perhaps a teenage dream, but his cars are cooler than his top hits or interesting clothing choices. Recently he’s been receiving a bit of negative attention in regard to his growing collection, with allegations of reckless driving and disturbing the peace popping up all over the media. Letting friends run around in his Range Rover is one thing, but he better keep his stunning Fisker Karma a little safer.

The drool-worthy car is entirely plated in chrome. The sight of it cruising by is like watching molten silver in motion. It’s a truly gorgeous piece of machinery, one that many car enthusiasts would kill to test drive. All right, the finish is a bit outlandish, but when you have all the money in the world, what else are you going to do? Well, you could coat your car in gold chrome instead.

George Clooney’s Tiny Tango

As a quintessential leading man, George Clooney often makes impeccable choices, whether he’s picking top roles or pretty dates. You might not call his car collection impeccable, but his rides are certainly intriguing.

At first glance, you might think his tiny electric Tango, courtesy of Commuter Cars, is kind of strange, not to mention small. However, it’s actually one of the coolest cars in existence, primarily because of its size. With something like this, you’d never have to worry about rush hour again, because it’s designed to drive between lanes—and it’s capable of going from 0-60 in just 4 seconds.

Paris Hilton’s Blinging Bentley

Apparently diamonds really are a girl’s best friend. Socialite Paris Hilton’s clothing collection is more expansive than her car collection, but the latter is still very impressive. The crowning jewel of her collection is her Bentley GT Continental—not exactly crazy, you’ll agree, until you consider the dashboard. It’s encrusted with diamonds. Combined with the pink color, the car the heiress gifted to herself definitely resembles Barbie’s dream car.

Jay Leno’s Retro Throwback

Jay Leno has one of the most well-known car collections of any celebrity. He loves automobiles of all kinds, but although he always gets deserved props for his speedy, sleek McLaren and his vintage Gullwing, he’s also got a White Steam car. You haven’t seen a vintage steam car until you’ve spotted the talk show titan in this 1908 classic. It’s hard to believe cars like that ever existed.

From the sublime to the ridiculous, celebrities certainly know how to trick out their rides. If you had more money than you could spend in a lifetime, what car would you buy and what would you do to it?
