Giannis Antetokounmpo, also known as the "Greek Freak", is one of the most famous basketball players in the world. With numerous records and honors to his name, he is one of the NBA's most decorated players, which fully explains his current level of fame. He is also the tenth highest-paid athlete in the world, having earned $80.9 million over the last 12 months. But unlike most NBA players that earn the big bucks, Giannis has been modest when it comes to splurging money on cars.

Giannis Antetokounmpo entered the NBA with the Milwaukee Bucks as the 15th overall pick in the 2011 draft. Since then, he has nearly won everything possible in the NBA: the MVP, the Defensive Player of the Year, an NBA Championship, and the NBA Finals MVP. Not only is he one of the most accomplished and recognizable players, but he is also among the highest-paid athletes in the world. In December of 2020, Giannis signed the largest contract in league history—a 5-year, $228 million contract.

But unlike his rivals, such as LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Stephen Curry, who choose to spend a lot of money on cars, Giannis has spent comparatively less. The number of cars in his garage is also low, with only 4 cars in total, which include a Land Rover Defender, a BMW I8 and a Rolls-Royce Cullinan. So, without further ado, here is Giannis Antetokounmpo’s updated 2023 car collection.

4. Land Rover Defender

The first car on this list is the Land Rover Defender. This is one of three SUVs in Giannis’ car collection. The Land Rover Defender is one of the few SUVs that has managed to maintain its original identity. No other automaker has managed to combine excellent off-road performance with genuine driving comfort quite as well as Land Rover has achieved with this SUV. The 2023 version of the Defender largely resembles the model year it replaces because the current generation of Defenders is still fairly new on the market.

The 2023 Defender competes against the likes of the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, the Ford Bronco, and the Toyota 4Runner TRD Off-Road. The 2023 Land Rover Defender has a starting price of $51,700.

2. BMW I8

The only sports car in Giannis’ garage is the BMW I8. One of the enjoyable ways to protect the environment without having a dull trip is with a BMW i8. It should go without saying that you won't get the same degree of performance as a BMW fueled exclusively by conventional gasoline or a fully electric vehicle. Even so, it still outperforms the majority of plug-in hybrids now on the market.

2020 was the last production year for the BMW I8. At the time of its release, the I8 competed with the likes of Acura NSX, Lexus LC 500h, and the Polestar 1. The starting price of the 2020 BMW I8 was $147,500.

1. Rolls-Royce Cullinan

The final car on this list is the Rolls-Royce Cullinan. As a brand, Rolls-Royce doesn't require an introduction. It has been and will continue to be the pinnacle of luxury for decades. The Cullinan was the company’s first SUV, and it bears the same name as a huge diamond and is valued similarly. It was designed by Rolls-Royce to combine stunning off-roading abilities with pure elegance.

The 2022 Cullinan competes with SUVs like the Porsche Cayenne Turbo, Lamborghini Urus, and Bentley Bentayga Speed. The 2022 Rolls-Royce Cullinan has a starting price of $336,000, which makes it the most expensive car on this list.
