While most of us would be lucky to get a new pair of socks or maybe even a car care kit for our birthdays, rapper Jay-Z has been given a $2 million Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport for his 41st birthday by his lovely wife Beyonce Knowles.

Jay-Z, who celebrated his birthday on December 4, is said to have been thrilled with the present, despite already having one of the most extensive car collections in the country. Some of the cars he’s fortunate enough to own the keys to include a Maybach 62S, a Ferrari F430 Spider and a Pagani Zonda Roadster.

The answer to that is simple: Even for the Veyron Grand Sport, she had to order the car a full year in advance to ensure it would be ready in time Jay-Z’s birthday. Ah, the lifestyles of the rich and famous…
