Any old millionaire can buy a
Lamborghini. But if you're the queen of rap, you may need a Lambo that has a little more flash.
While Nicki Minaj wasn't able to secure a
Lamborghini Countach, her highly customized Aventador is certainly eye-catchy. So much so that it has earned the nickname "The Nicki Minaj Lamborghini".
What is the Nicki Minaj Lamborghini?
The Nicki Minaj Lamborghini first caught the eyes of the paparazzi back in 2013, as reported by
MotorTrend. Minaj was seen driving the supercar to a Kmart as part of a promotion for her clothing line. While Lamborghinis stand out enough on their own, Minaj's Lambo was especially showy.
Her Lamborghini Aventador underwent a complete customization process to turn it bright pink. This includes custom Forgiato wheels that have matching pink spokes.
A pink Lambo is fitting for Minaj, as her break-out album was titled Pink Friday. Ever since the album's success, Minaj has made the color pink part of her persona. While the Nicki Minaj Lamborghini does have an exotic exterior, its specs are equally as impressive.

Specs of the Nicki Minaj Lamborghini
Like all Lamborghinis, the Aventador is quite impressive. While it is unknown what year-end model Minaji's Aventador is, it is fair to assume that she purchased the newest one available.
She was first seen driving it in 2013, so we'll go ahead and presume that the Nicki Minaj Lamborghini is a 2013 Aventador.
At the time, this would have been the first generation of the Aventador. Under the hood, it carried an impressive DOHC 48-valve V-12. This beast can produce a jaw-dropping 691 hp and 509 ft-lb of torque. Should Minaj ever take her Lambo to the track, she can expect a 0-60 mph of 3 seconds flat and a quarter-mile time of 10.9 seconds.
The interior is just as impressive, as it was sculpted by legendary designer Filippo Perini. Perini surprisingly got a lot of inspiration from the sixth element: carbon.
Not only is the Aventador full of carbon fiber components to provide lighter weight, but there are also subtly hidden hexagons as an homage to the element. We like to think that an artist like Minaj would appreciate such fine detail.
Other notable cars owned by the queen of rap
The Nicki Minaj Lamborghini isn't the only Lambo owned by the queen of rap. Her backup Lamborghini is Gallardo, also with a custom pink paint job.
Minaj must love pink as much as she loves specialty doors, because she has also been spotted driving a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. This supercar comes stock with Gullwing doors, but the pink paint was a special customization done by Minaj.
Despite owning several ultra-luxury cars, it seems the queen of rap has more humble tastes. She is often spotted driving a Range Rover and even released a single called I love my Range Rover.
