The cars Mzansi’s top celebrities own (and the hefty price tags)

Mercedes and Volkswagen are often the brands of choice for local celebrities, but we see BMW and Bentleys are also joining the fleet.

So what cars are most artists driving? Well, Mercedes and Volkswagens are often piloted by SA artists, but we also see BMW and Bentleys joining the fleet.
