Drake just purchased a brand new truck, a $1.4 million luxury Mercedes SUV.

According to Highsnobiety, the Toronto rapper purchased the brand new whip as a collectors item, and not as a daily driver. 

Drake dropped more a MILLI and a half on the ultra-rare Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Landaulet which, is a super fancy droptop version of the already luxurious G-Wagon. 

But it's uber rare. Only 99 total models were made of this car and now, Drake is the proud owner of one. The last Landaulet on the market sold for $1.4 million in 2017, and the value has held steady - so Drake' purchase was a good deal.

And it may be a good investment too. The price of collectors item cars continues to rise.

The news was announced by Tony Bet, his automobile mentor. He posted a photo of the car on Instagram, attaching a bunch of "Papi" balloons to the back so he can flaunt his new possession.

Here's Drake's new purchase:

As Robb Report notes, location tags indicate that Drake sent his Landaulet to Brabus for unspecified upgrades.

Given that the German tuning house's past G-Wagen overhauls cost around $100,000, it almost certainly ran Drake north of $600,000 based on the truck's estimated $550,000 base price.

If you get one stock from the German marque, the luxury SUV boasts a turbo-charged Mercedes-AMG V12 that produces 630 horsepower, 22-inch light-alloy wheels and 17.7 inches of ground clearance.
