Tyler, the Creator Shows Off His Car and Watch Collection, Reveals What His Dream Vehicle Is
In a new interview with the Robb Report, Tyler, the Creator showed off his collection of watches and jewelry, as well as his fleet of luxury sports cars.
Fresh off the release of Golf Wang’s fall/winter 2022 collection, Tyler, the Creator sat down with the Robb Report to discuss his legendary collection of luxury watches.
According to the Grammy-winning artist, his infatuation with collecting extravagant timepieces stems from a SpongeBob SquarePants watch he got from a Burger King kid’s meal when he was a young teen.
“I based a lot of my watch taste just off of how light it feels and how it could be colorful, too,” Tyler told the outlet. “It doesn’t always have to be gold and iced-out.” In fact, that’s just not his style. “I’ve seen some Rolexes, vintage ones, I really like, but aside from that, I’m just OK with the Cartiers. They bring me joy.”
Despite the hefty price tag on his precious watches, Tyler maintained that he’s “living in all of it.”
“I perform in my watches,” he shared. “I’ll jump in the water. I’ll bike with them. I sweat in them.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Tyler showed off his fleet of luxury cars, which includes a McLaren 675LT, Lancia Delta Integrale Evo II, Rolls-Royce Cullinan, Lancia Delta Integrale Evo; BMW M3, Fiat 131 Abarth Rally, and Rolls-Royce Camargue.
“I’ve always liked cars,” Tyler said. “I remember being 11, and I had a toy version of a 550 Maranello Ferrari, and I was so obsessed. And then I turned 15, and I was like, ‘Man, that Golf GTI Volkswagen looks so cool.’”
“I drive most of [the cars] when I can,” he continued. “My Cullinan is my everyday. It’s truly a first-class seat on a plane. But then my BMW—if I had to rob a bank, I would probably use that car. Because I just know it so well, I control it differently. I drift in it, making a little left turn and letting the ass shoot out and stuff, before I go back on the straight.”
When asked if there’s any cars he’s still looking to buy, Tyler revealed there’s one that’s always been on his wish list.
“I want a LaFerrari. That’s my dream,” he said. “Make that shit dark Kelly green. When I get that car, I’m driving five miles per hour everywhere. I want everyone to see me in that vehicle. One day I’ll have a F40. One day I’m going to get the Lamborghini truck, the old one. Jay-Z pulled up on me in one, and I was like, ‘You are a psycho, man.’”
