8. Lexus

If your name is Alexis, there’s a 45% chance you were named after this aspirational car brand. Kanye said so.

7. Ford Mustang

Afford Mustang? You damn right we can. And we’ll let pedestrians and fellow drivers know it every time we pull off with the engine screaming.

6. Dodge Charger

These muscle cars come equipped with a beastly engine that makes its driver feel ready to take on a Hot Wheels vertical loop — or aimlessly drive around town pantless, word to Victor Wallace. Either way, you’re sure to turn heads.

5. Cadillac Escalade

These gas-guzzling SUVs sitting on 24-inch rims would pop up in virtually every hip-hop music video of the early 2000s. Forget J.D. Power — late streetball legend Troy Jackson adopting this big truck’s name as his on-court alias is the highest of auto world honors.

4. Cadillac DeVille

When it comes to whips, old-school cars are worshipped from the Bay Area to the Dirty South. All they need is a fresh candy-paint job, some obnoxious wheels that poke out like love handles, and a hydraulic system that makes you feel like you’re in a damn roller coaster.

3–2. Mercedes Benz and BMW (tie)

The official car of “I just got my first good job so it’s time to splurge.” Just watch out for those maintenance costs, homie.

1. Chrysler 300

Spacious. Affordable. A grill that would make Paul Wall show off his own. Drake and Katt Williams have stated what we’ve all thought at one time or another — that this line of vehicles looks like no-frills versions of Bentleys and Rolls-Royces, respectively — but that’s not going to stop us from keeping it 300 like the Spartans!
