Drake Celebrates Album Release by Purchasing a 2016 McLaren 675LT
Days before releasing his chart-topping new album Views, popular rap musician Drake stopped by Driving Emotions Motorcar in his native Canada and picked up the new 2016 McLaren 675LT.
Drake is already the owner of a black Rolls-Royce Wraith and Mercedes-Maybach Pullman, and the new McLaren is an expensive addition to his car collection, with a starting MSRP of $349,000. However, Drake can definitely afford it when you consider his new CD sold more than 600,000 copies via iTunes in only its first night of release.

The new McLaren 675LT is powered by a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 that’s good for 666 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. That potent motor is paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, which helps this vehicle accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds. Furthermore, the McLaren 675LT can reach a top-speed of 205 mph, making it one of the fastest vehicles that can still be driven on public roads legally.
The photo of Drake and his McLaren was shared by Instagram user @TonyBet, but the caption didn’t mention how many keys the rap star received with his new sports car, which is worth mentioning because on the song “Child’s Play” from Drake’s new album, the Canadian MC revealed he has to sometimes hide his keys to prevent house guests from driving his premium automobiles. “You wildin’, you super childish, you go to CVS for cotex in my Bughatti. I took the key and tried to hide it, so you can’t drive it and put on mileage, then you find it, awkward silence,” Drake boasts in the rap.
The McLaren 675LT might not be the only new addition to Drake’s stable of cars. The rap star recently shared a new video via Instagram that shows him driving a white 2016 Rolls Royce Dawn. The new Rolls-Royce Dawn also boasts a price tag of more than $300,000 and comes with a 563-horsepower V12 engine. Needless to say, it’s a great time to be alive if you’re one of the fortunate people that Drake trusts to sell him cars.

Samuel Huist is easily the tallest member (6-feet 5-inches) of the The News Wheel team. He enjoys listening to hip-hop music and loves watching NBA basketball. Sam is also a Dayton, Ohio native and doesn’t seem to mind that distinction as much anymore. His first car was a 1996 Ford Taurus he could barely fit in. Like many young folks, he seemed more concerned about the radio in his first car than actually doing the work to maintain an automobile, so sadly it’s no longer with us. See more articles by Samuel.
