‘Jersey Shore’: See Which Cast Member Drives the Most Expensive Car of All
As we’ve seen in the Jersey Shore Family Vacation reboot, the cast members may have matured, but their tastes are still what some would call over-the-top. Each cast member has piggybacked off their reality show success with spinoffs, clothing lines, or endorsements. Most are worth millions. And they have the flashy cars to prove it.
Here we’ll look at the cars each fist-pumping Jersey Shore star has owned. See who owns the most cars (page 5) and who owns the most expensive ride of all (page 8).
1. Nicole “Snooki” LaValle
- Price she auctioned her Cadillac Escalade for: $77,510
The petite brunette showed up to the Jersey Shore house in a big honking SUV that reflected her personality. Her customized the 2011 matte black Cadillac Escalade EXT had a hot pink grille, door handles, and wheels. She later auctioned it on eBay for $77,510.
She also owned a 2011 BMW 328i coupe, which she was selling for $36,999, Auto Trader reported. More recently, she purchased a Land Rover. “The reason I bought my Land Rover is because it’s huge,” she said, adding she could drive it up a mountain in a zombie apocalypse and not get stuck.

2. Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola
- She said costar Deena copied her by getting her own BMW.
Unlike some of her male former co-stars, Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola hasn’t accumulated an array of vehicles worth millions. Instead, she reportedly had one vehicle: A white BMW 5 series. Years back, she got into a much-publicized feud with co-star Deena Cortese when Cortese purchased a similar Bimmer.
“Imitation is flattery,” Giancola tweeted with a photo of her car, saying Cortese’s looked exactly like hers, with hashtag #cantyougetyourownstyle. When fans started to chime in, Giancola assured them it was all in good fun.

3. Ronnie Ortiz-Magro
- He bought a convertible BMW when he moved to California.
Are we beginning to see a pattern here? When he moved from New Jersey to California, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro picked up a red BMW 6 series convertible with a red interior. “In Cali, you can’t have a top on your car,” he told Dub Magazine.
The reality star, famous for his line, “Come at me, bro,” was recently spotted visiting an exotic car dealership in Miami with his Jersey Shore guy pals, so maybe Oritz-Magro is ready for a new set of wheels. (He test-drove a Lamborghini with Sorrentino.)
Next: He was first in the U.S. to have this vehicle.
4. Vinny Guadagnino
- He owned the first 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo in the U.S.
In addition to Jersey Shore, Vinny Guadagnino landed a few movie roles as well as his own talk show, MTV’s The Show with Vinny. Vehicles owned over the years by this relatively low-key cast member include:
- 2012 Mercedes-Benz E550
- 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo
The reality star owned the first white 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo in the country. “I was actually looking at 2012 models and they were all gone,” he said. “But the dealership called me up and told me they’ll have the first 2013 in the States and I immediately said yes.”

5. Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino
- His custom Lamborghini’s license plate read “GTL” for his “Gym, tan, laundry” daily motto.
The Situation has the most cars out of anyone from the Jersey Shore cast, with four to his name:
- Ferrari F-430
- Lamborghini Gallardo
- Bentley Continental
- Jeep Wrangler Sahara
He was unable to name his favorite car, comparing them to a blonde and a brunette both being beautiful in their own unique ways. “All of the cars are custom and truly amazing vehicles,” he said. “I drive them all regularly depending on the occasion, but all of them get the same TLC.”

6. Jenni “JWoww” Farley
- She also drove a Ford Transit Connect on a road trip with Snooki.
Like most of her co-stars, JWoww also opted for a BMW. She went with the X5 model, a large SUV well suited for her two kids. She received her brand new Beemer in Jersey City while filming her Jersey Shore spinoff with Snooki.
Does JWoww also own a Ford Transit Connect? She’s seen driving one in a Moms With Attitude episode where she and Snooki take their three kids on a road trip. Their goal was to show how they manage a road trip with “three actual crazy kids.”

7. Deena Nicole Cortese
- She clapped back at Giancola’s claims she copied her by getting a BMW.
In 2012, Deena Nicole Cortese pulled up to the Jersey Shore house in a Mazda 3. However, after some time on the hit reality show, she traded up to her BMW 3 series, causing the drama previously-mentioned with Giancola.
What we didn’t mention earlier was Cortese’s Twitter response: “lol @mtvsammi WOW. lol pretty pathetic… Im pretty sure theres 11231 ppl out there with white bmws … does yours have a stripe? red interior? the m package?? OH WAIT! and yours is a 5 series! and mines the new 3 series … honestly you ranting over twitter bc of a car is pathetic … if you were a real friend youd say congrats… like my other 2 girls with beamers.” Touché.

8. Pauly “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio
- Price he paid for Lamborghini Aventador: $450,000
DJ Pauly D became a fan favorite on the MTV reality show, known for being the level-headed peacemaker among the heaps of drama. Since the show ended, he’s toured the world as a DJ and opened for Britney Spears on her Femme Fatale Tour. So what does the DJ who has everything drive? Here are the cars he’s owned:
- Mercedes-Benz S-Class AMG
- 2008 Cadillac DTS
- Lamborghini Aventador
He recently picked up this white Lambo for $450,000. With a $20 million reported net worth, this was an easy buy for the DJ — all in a day’s work.
