Justin Bieber and the Kardashians Blacklisted for Buying Ferrari
The automaker reserves the right to restrict who it sells its exclusive models to.
The Kardashians have plenty of swoon-worthy cars, but it seems Ferrari isn’t one of them. According to a report by Mark, a Spanish newspaper, the Italian automaker has a blacklist of celebrities it doesn’t want to sell. And above, the Kardashian family.
While this may not prevent the Kardashians from acquiring a Ferrari, it does mean that Ferrari reserves the right to carefully select who it sells its models to, especially exclusive models.
The automaker is also strict about maintaining and preserving its models, including prohibiting unauthorized modifications to its cars.
The report doesn’t say whether Ferrari is against selling all the Kardashians (including the Jenners, like Kendall and Kylie). But he added that other celebrities had been blacklisted from the exclusives, including Justin Bieber, Nicolas Cage and Floyd Mayweather.
Justin’s ban stems from his decision to sell his 2011 Ferrari F458 in 2017 after making unauthorized modifications, including changing its color to neon blue.
(Last week I tweeted that Ferrari banned Justin Bieber from buying new Ferraris due to his public behavior – A week later we’re adding the Kardashians to that same list!) 🤔

In order to preserve exclusivity, Ferrari has a rigorous selection process for potential buyers. Like car keys reports, the automaker often asks to see ownership history and doesn’t “take any buyer under 40 seriously.”
It would be even harder to get your hands on an exclusive model, even if you have owned Ferraris. The publication refers to the case of Preston Henn, a former racing driver and entrepreneur, who owned 18 Ferraris over a period of decades.
Henn decided to sue the automaker for $75,000 after they denied him the purchase of an Aperta (saying it damaged his reputation. However, he later opted to withdraw the lawsuit.
Even if the Kardashians can’t buy Ferraris in the future, they certainly have huge luxury cars to their name.

Kylie Jenner is said to have a car collection worth at least $1.5 million, which includes a Lamborghini Urus, Bugatti Chiron, blue Rolls Royce. However, her on-and-off boyfriend, Travis Scott, gave her a Ferrari LaFerrari as a gift after the birth of their daughter Stormi, so her car collection definitely runs into the millions, if any.
Justin Bieber, too, will have no shortage of luxurious options despite his supposed Ferrari ban. His car collection includes a Lamborghini Urus, a Porsche Cayenne and a Rolls Royce Ghost.
