Beyonce buys Jay-Z $2 million Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport for his 41st birthday




Hip-hop elder statesman Jay-Z may have turned 41 last Saturday, but his brithday gift will turn all the young fellas green with envy. Wife Beyonce Knowles bought the one-and-only HOVA a $2 million Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport. That's celebrating a midlife crisis in style! Now he can drive as fast as possible to that prostate exam.

"Jay-Z has one of the most enviable collections of bling motors in the world -- but even for him the Bugatti is special," a source (possibly any gearhead in the city of London) told the U.K.'s Sun. "Obviously the money isn't a factor for Beyonce, but Jay will be touched that out of everything she could have bought him, she chose something he'll treasure for years. He's in for the ride of his life."

The car has a 16.4-liter, 1,000-hp engine that can top out at 253 mph, going from zero to 60 in 2.7 seconds. He'll be adding it to a stable that includes a Maybach 62S, Ferrari F430 Spider and a Pagani Zonda Roadster. That's way better than the regular ol' Veyron Simon Cowell has. And for the record, Beyonce made about $87 million this year alone (compared to his paltry $35 million), so no, it's no stretch to put this in the garage.
