Iconic hip-hop artist Snoop Dogg has a prolific car collection that reflects his old-school sensibilities and style. Unlike most pop stars, he doesn’t roll with low-slung cars or sleek Gran Turismos. Snoop’s got a nose for vintage and legacy rides. Here are a few standouts the veteran rapper rolls up in.
Snoop’s 1996 Pontiac Parisienne ‘Lakers Edition’
Snoop has adorned his collection with iconic vintage cars, including the 1966 Pontiac Parisienne. His Pontiac Parisienne is a special “Lakers Edition,” featuring images of Lakers legends like Shaq, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Wilt Chamberlain, and the late Kobe Bryant.
The 1966 Pontiac Parisienne debuted with a 5.0-liter V8 engine, producing an impressive 194.4 hp and 285 lb-ft of torque. While third parties don’t provide specific figures, it can reach 0-60 mph in a decent time. In terms of other specifications, it ranges from 5.2 to 7 seconds with a top speed of 120 mph.
Unfortunately, the bittersweet aspect of this iconic car lies in the fact that Snoop Dogg presented it to Kobe Bryant after his retirement. Regrettably, the basketball legend’s time to revel in this generous gesture was cut short.
Snoop’s 1974 Cadillac Snoop de Ville Lowrider
Lowriders have been a part of LA’s gangsta hip-hop culture for decades, peaking in the 1990s. Artists like Dr. Dre featured these cars in their videos, boosting their popularity. While Snoop followed in their footsteps, he was sure to put his spin on the proceedings.
This limited edition features Snoop Dogg’s moniker on the front bumper. The 1974 Cadillac Snoop Deville Lowrider is equipped with a 7.7-liter V8 engine, delivering 340 hp and 501 lb-ft of torque. It reportedly achieves 0-60 in 4.6 seconds and has a top speed of 166 mph.
The Crown Jewel of Snoop Dogg’s Car Collection: The 1967 Cadillac de Ville ‘Brown Sugar’
Snoop Dogg rolls up in style with this entry in his car collection. It is the metallic brown Caddy, known as the “Cadillac de Ville ‘Brown Sugar”.
The vehicle underwent customizations by a man named Big Slice, formerly involved in drug dealing, who redirected his skills toward modifying cars for celebrities. It boasts chandeliers adorning the back seat, a metallic brown exterior, and a trunk proudly displaying Big Slice’s name alongside a painting of Snoop and his sons. This remarkable piece of art even found a place of honor at the Henry Ford Museum in Detroit.
