Yoenis Cespedes' collection of cars has made Matt Harvey's new Maserati look more like a Mazda.
If you haven't been paying attention, the Mets center fielder and prized free agent signing has shown off a different customized and incredibly expensive car every day during his first week of spring training, putting to shame all other vehicles parked in the Tradition Field lot—including Harvey's $150,000 toy.
Cars might not be our forte here at Complex Sports, but when a superstar athlete shows off five cars that cumulatively cost him just shy of a $1 million, we felt compelled to critique and rank 'em. So after a week of relentless heat here are Cespedes' rides on a scale of impressive to literal flames.
12. Sunday/Monday: Ford F-250
Since he was bringing some equipment on the first day of camp, Cespedes opted for the practical ride upon reporting to Port St. Lucie. Plenty of room to throw all your baseball gear in the back and carpool with a few teammates. It's masculine, it's beastly, it's a pick-up on steroids. All for around $95,000.
Don't know about you, but if this thing was tailgating me on I-95, no way I'm not changing lanes.
Heat check: 🔥🔥
11. Tuesday: Polaris Slingshot
According to ESPN's Darren Rovell, the tricked out three-wheeler cost Cespedes a relatively modest $68,000. That sounds like a lot of money for a glorified two-seater motorcycle, but, hey, we're not going to tell the man how to spend the $20 million he'll make this season. He can afford a beautiful mistake or two.
The best part is watching him peel out of the parking lot.

8. Thursday: Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione
Cespedes is a damn liar. Wednesday he told reporters he was all out of new cars.
Then he gifted us with a Thursday heater, arriving early to Tradition Field for his physical in the Italian car that reportedly cost around $260,000. A (relatively) similar 4C Coupe could be all yours for $55,000 or a measly $649 per month with $5,499 due at signing on a 24-month lease.
Heat check: 🔥🔥🔥🔥
6. Friday: Jeep Wrangler
Cespedes told reporters that this was his favorite ride. It's arguably the most badass with custom stiched seats, all for a relatively modest $80,000.
Heat check: 🔥🔥🔥🔥
3. Wednesday: Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4
Honestly, Harvey should be driving this since, you know, he's the Dark Knight and all.
Cespedes spent over $367,500 on this ride and it features Kanye approved suicide doors, a customized black and blue paint job, Cespedes' No. 52 substituting for the Lamborghini logo, and an exhaust that shoots out flames. Seriously, how is Harvey not driving this thing?
Just don't forget to put on the emergency brake.
One lucky Mets staffer got to run an errand in the Lambo, all because Cespedes prefers his waffles to be round round. And his rides have been such a big deal that members of the Mets coaching staff have been nerding out over them. Several reportedly asked Cespedes if they could to take pictures while sitting inside. He happily obliged.
And apparently, he's not done yet.
Tomorrow will be the last Cespedes car. Says Cespedes' car guy, Alex Vega: "Trust me, you don't even understand tomorrow."
