NBA Star Ben Simmons Proves He's A 'Car Guy' While Flaunting New Ride

Ben Simmons is well known as a Australian professional basketball player for the Philadelphia 76ers. The 25-year-old athlete started his professional career as the first overall pick in 2016 and has been with the 76ers since then.

He was named an NBA All-Star in 2019, 2020 and 2021. He has gained a fabulous reputation and a massive $33 million salary each year.

Furthermore, he has an LA mansion worth $17.5m and holds a net worth of $6 million. (Besides his latest shiny toys)

Ben's Shiny New Toys

Ben’s NBA career has become quite lucrative for him. His contract with the 76ers is worth $177 million spread over 5 years. His financial future relatively secure with millions to spare, he can certainly afford to have a hobby or two.

Some take up stamps, fine drinks, or perhaps coin collecting, but Ben prefers collecting things that are more “driven.”

Indeed, Ben now owns a number of high-end luxury sports cars, with the latest being a Black “Ford Shelby F-150 Super Snake” added to his collection.

Based on the Ford pickup, this fancy truck is nothing short of awe-inspiring. Sporting the latest technology and the bulk any part-time hauler can appreciate, this is the definition of functional innovation.

“Though the roots of the Shelby F-150 Super Snake trucks trace back to the famous Shelby muscle cars of the Sixties, they’re capable of far more than just straight-line performance,” VP of operations Vince LaViolette released in a statement for the press.

He went on to share how the handling and speed of these trucks is amazing.

“These fast trucks also handle and stop exceptionally well." Vince continued, "The rumble and whine of the supercharged engine is a symphony of aural mechanical beauty. The styling is strong and handsome without being obnoxious. This is the purest incarnation of a 1960s muscle car in pickup form.”

These particular trucks are so specially made that there are only going to be 300 made! They will be available across the United States, but they are expected to sell-out quickly. (Which is probably why Ben got one being a car collector himself!)

Ben's Other Cars

Ben’s go-to car is actually a Rolls-Royce Cullinan in black. The 2020 car retails for around $325,000 and is considered a fabulous addition to the long lineup of their luxury sedans.

Ben also owns a Rolls-Royce Wraith, Ferrari 488 Pista and 488 Spider, and Lamborghini Urus. A lineup fit for a millionaire to say the least.

The NBA professional has posted a number of amazing pictures on his social media where he can be seen alongside his posh vehicles. While his collection could be considered small compared to other celebrity millionaires, it is estimated that he has spent millions on his cars at this point.
