If you haven't been Keeping Up with the Kardashians (you're excused), you may have missed that Kim's 2023 Range Rover has made all the top gossip news lately -- and not because she's done anything in it lately, but because it's for sale in Florida for $100,000 in a very much wrecked state.
Being one of the most famous people in the world, Kim Kardashian was also one of the first to get her hands on the new fifth-generation Range Rover in 2022. Kim was gifted the Rangie by her mother, Kris Jenner, as a gift for her 42nd birthday. Reports from the era say it was a plug-in hybrid vehicle. It was painted the same shade of grey that all of Kim's cars are painted and had custom solid-disc rims installed. She put about 10,500 miles on the odometer over about a year before one of her staffers got in an accident, which crumpled in the front end and popped the airbags. Kim was last seen driving it in September 2023.
From there the vehicle seems to have gone through some kind of strange salvage situation, in which it's either now located in Miami at the dealer that listed it this week on Carfax as a used car listing, or is still in Los Angeles with Kim's preferred detail shop. Either way, it's certainly the same vehicle -- beyond the one-of-a-kind custom paint job and rims, it also has the same license plate. (California license plates stay with the vehicle, instead of with the owner like many other states, so as long as the vehicle is sold from Californian to Californian, the plate goes with it and will stay on the vehicle on dealer lots until it is sold out of state.)
The listing doesn't explicitly say it's Kim's car, and that work was done by gossip columns like Page Six and TMZ. But the aforementioned clues are combined with TMZ's verifying the info -- and the reality is that TMZ has the Hollywood information network that any of us can only dream of.
For a wrecked vehicle, the $99,950 listing price may seem like a lot, but of course, it's also an almost-new Range Rover with 10,500 miles at the end of the day, so there is some value in it as salvage no matter what. Whether it's worth it to you to pay $100,000 for a wrecked Range Rover depends on just how much you're plugged into celebrity culture -- and what price you can put on owning a driver's seat once sat in by the butt that broke the internet.
