Eight-time Grammy winner Usher has been busy lately. He has a successful Las Vegas residency that pulled in celebrity attendance, and it was recently announced he is set to headline the Super Bowl LVIII Halftime Show presented by Apple Music and Roc Nation.
While the Super Bowl won’t happen until Feb. 11, 2024, at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, the anticipation is already high.
While Usher won’t get paid for the Super Bowl show as is the tradition, he has already amassed a fortune estimated to be $180 million. And, by many accounts Usher doesn’t splurge much. But when he does, it’s on his car collection.
Here is a list of vehicles Usher reportedly owns and how much they are worth:
2018 Ford Mustang GT
Usher owns a powerful and stylish 2018 Ford Mustang GT. It’s driven by a 5.0L V-8 engine that generates 526 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. This muscle car can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds and has a top speed of 155 mph. Its price falls between $40,000 and $50,000, depending on customization.
2016 Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG
In addition to the Mustang, Usher possesses a 2016 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class CLA A45 AMG, which comes with a price tag of $50,000. This luxury high-performance hatchback is equipped with a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine producing 375 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. It can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds and reach a top speed of 155 mph.
2014 Matte Black Mercedes-Benz CLS
Before acquiring the A45 AMG, Usher owned a 2014 Matte Black Mercedes-Benz CLS, a stylish four-door coupe. This car featured a potent 5.5L V-8 engine delivering 402 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque. It had a price tag of $70,000 and could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds.
2015 Mercedes-Benz AMG
Usher’s 2015 Mercedes-Benz AMG is a luxury sports car priced at $80,000. It boasts a 5.5-liter V-8 engine churning out 577 horsepower, and does 0 to 60 in 3.5 seconds.
2015 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S
Another gem in Usher’s collection is the AMG GT S. Powered by an AMG 4.0L biturbo V-8 engine generating 503 horsepower, it can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds and has a top speed of 190 mph.
2019 Cadillac Escalade

This roomy SUV offers premium amenities, including leather seats, heated and ventilated front seats, and a touchscreen infotainment system compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
2009 Ferrari 458 Spider
Among his collection is the 2009 Ferrari 458 Spider, an Italian sports convertible priced at $280,000. It is equipped with a 4.5-liter V-8 engine generating 558 horsepower, capable of reaching 0 to 60 mph in just three seconds and a top speed of 199 mph.
2004 Porsche Carrera GT
Usher’s 2004 Porsche Carrera GT is a rare and highly sought-after supercar valued at $450,000. Only 664 models were produced for U.S. specifications, making it exceptionally rare. It features a 5.7L V-10 engine with 605 horsepower, accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds and boasting a top speed of 205 mph.
A side note, “Fast & Furious” star Paul Walker was in a Porsche Carrera GT when he died in 2018 in a vehicle car crash.
Touted as a race car for street driving, some critics say it is difficult to handle. “It’s almost too dangerous,” an instructor at a popular racing school told People Magazine. “We would never let a regular person take that car out and even our drivers wouldn’t take the risk.”
