The vehicle is perfect for Jay Z and Beyoncé. Since their daughter Blue Ivy was born, they've been passionate about boats, enjoy champagne and have an unabashed passion for all things blue.
“It's thought this fantastic car has been commissioned by Beyoncé and Jay Z, with all its detailing matching their favourite things,” a source told The Telegraph.
Most importantly, with a combined nett worth of $1.9 billion (R26 billion), Jay and Bey can afford to spend a fortune on a bespoke car they'll probably just use once for a picnic.
Briefly News previously reported that Jay-Z explained that he learned to swim after their daughter Blue Ivy was born. Jay-Z is such a protective father and will do anything to shield his daughter from harm.
The US billionaire has explained that he only learned to swim after the birth of his daughter, Blue Ivy. The rapper was speaking candidly during an interview with HBO's The Shop: Uninterrupted.
"If she ever fell in the water and I couldn't get her, I couldn't even fathom that thought. I gotta learn how to swim."
Blue Ivy is the first of three kids Hov shares with his wife, Beyoncé. The award-winning Blue is nine years old now.
