With a combined net worth of over $1.5 billion, Jay-Z and Queen B live a life of luxury with access to the finest things in this world that most people could only dream about. Spending money on expensive things isn’t a strange thing for the couple, and they own several things with hefty price tags which include, mega-mansions, a private island, luxury cars, and everything in between.
Keeping count of all of his luxuries won’t be an easy task, but for sure he would not forget the most expensive thing he owns. Twice as much as the power couple’s private island in the Caribbean is Jay-Z’s $40 million jet plane that Beyoncé gifted him for father’s day in 2012.
Beyonce and Jay-Z exchange gifts for various reasons including birthdays and any other special occasions. For instance, Jay-Z bought Beyonce a vintage $1 million Rolls-Royce Convertible for her 25th birthday, and in return, she gifted Jay-Z a $2 million Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport for his 41st birthday. Apparently, the Bugatti is rare that Queen B too, was on the waiting list for more than a year.
After their first daughter, Blue Ivy was born in 2012, Beyonce decided to surprise Jay-Z with a much bigger gift than she had ever given. She splashed $40 million on a Bombardier Challenger 850, according to sources. The size of this massive aircraft is around 440 sq-feet, which is the size of an average apartment in New York City. So what’s special about this plane? Well, as we know, the power couple is indulged in luxury all the time and would demand top-notch amenities during travel as well. Therefore, it’s equipped with an elegant kitchen, a private living room aboard, and two separate bathrooms.
The power couple could straightaway board into the luxurious aircraft without having to go through TSA checkpoints and experience the elegant interior that is finished in cream color at the base of the palette. Photos also revealed champagne glasses waiting for the power couple as they stepped on board. Do Jay-Z and Beyoncé like to sip and fly? It certainly seems to be the case!
The exterior is also glamorous just as the inside. Since it’s an exclusive gift, Beyonce has monogrammed the initials of Jay-Z’s first name ‘S’ and his last name ‘Carter.’ The letters are stamped on the side of the jet, right next to the powerful engine in bright red cursive which distinguishes it from the rest of the planes in the hanger.
The couple is in “Crazy Love,” and we don’t know what the next gift might be. It was recently rumored that Jay-Z and Beyonce were the owners of the $28 million Rolls Royce Boat-Tail, which is a picnic-friendly car exclusively made by the coachbuilder. Even if they own it, it’s not as expensive as the $40 million jet plane.
