With today (June 8) being Kanye West’s 35th birthday, Kim Kardashian bought the rap superstar—and her boyfriend—a jet-black Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4, according to TMZ. The rare sports car comes equipped with a hefty price tag of a cool $750,000. Lamborghini refers to the vehicle as a “courageous specimen” on its website. Aventador was a bull bred in Spain that entered into battle and earned a trophy for exhibiting courage during a fight.
TMZ posted photos of the super-charged car, resting on the flatbed of a tow truck, believed to be back in the United States. That means, Yeezy won’t be able to check it out till he returns home. He’s currently with Jay-Z on the European leg of the Watch the Throne Tour; the Ireland stop.
Reportedly, Kim took of a video of the car, which she show him tonight.
Kim isn’t the only one who is balling so hard for the Louis Vuitton Don. Sneakerheads all over the country are waiting on long lines and paying exorbitant amounts for Air Yeezy 2 sneakers (made by Nike), which go on sale Saturday (June 9) for a retail price of $245. The Los Angeles Times reports that only 3,000 to 5,000 pairs will be released. One person couldn’t wait, preordering the kicks for a mind-boggling $90,3000 on eBay.
