The ranch isn’t the only thing Kanye West is hocking at the moment. The 21-time Grammy Award-winner’s exorbitant fleet of blacked-out SUVs and trucks has just been listed, with six of his most prized vehicular possessions up for grabs. If you are a fan of Ford’s big and brawny, or you’ve just been tasked with surveillance detail for the President of the United States, this could be the auction for you.
Six of Ye‘s blacked-out Ford 4x4s are heading to the auction block by way of Wyoming-based Musser Bros. Auctions and Real Estate, but they aren’t coming directly from the man himself. Auctioneer Mark Musser revealed to Robb Report that Ye recently sold the custom four-wheelers to a local Ford dealership in Cody, Wyoming, before being picked up by the auction house.
“After I learned that Fremont Motors of Cody bought these vehicles back, I approached them to discuss having an auction on these vehicles. I told them this would make an excellent online auction,” Musser said. “We are already having lots of action and interest. The most desirable and sought-after items are sold at auction, including artwork, collector cars, real estate, jewellery, etc., and these vehicles were the perfect fit.”
The lot in question is seriously beefy. With a 2016 F-350, a 2017 F-250, a 2018 F-150 Raptor and a 2019 F-150 Raptor, along with two 2020 Ford Expedition SUVs (including a Limited Stealth edition), Ye’s haul isn’t exactly diverse. The uniform collection sees each car characterised by a custom black matte wrap with further matte features on the interior and throughout. But unlike a lot of celebrity-owned vehicles, you can actually tell these trucks have got some use out on the ranch.
The 2019 F-150 Raptor 4×4 Supercrew has around 35,243 miles on the clock, while the 2016 F-350 SRW has closer to 80,000. Naturally, the price reflects this. Despite having a celebrity heritage, the relatively new trucks aren’t insanely expensive. In fact, $36,000 for. 2017 Ford F250 is actually quite reasonable if a little on the pricier side. Suffice to say, Ye’s trucks have certainly done some heavy lifting, but the load is lightening.
The rapper and fashion mogul recently made the decision to step away from country life, listing his enormous Cody estate. Ominously named Monster Lake Ranch, the property sits on six square miles and features a luxurious lodge complete with horse stables, a go-kart course and a series of winding hiking tracks. Unlike his suite of trucks, however, the property isn’t exactly a cheap proposition. Kanye West’s Monster Lake Ranch was originally listed for USD$13.3 million but has since dropped to USD$11 million.
