For Nightclub On Wheels!

EXCLUSIVE

0731-hector-olivera-van-tmz-la-dodgers-01With Hector Olivera being traded from the Dodgers to the Braves ... he's got a one helluva ride to make the long distance trip -- a SWAGGED OUT $300k pimp van ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Olivera -- who signed a $62.5 MILLION contract with the Dodgers back in May -- recently dropped $60k on a Mercedes Benz sprinter van ... so he could hit the clubs in style and comfort just like Floyd Mayweather and Tyrese. 

And just like Floyd and Tyrese, Hector wanted to PIMP THE HELL out of his ride ... so he took it to Alex Vega at the AutoFirm in Miami and dropped $250k to make the inside look like a sick private jet. 

Two personal black leather reclining seats ... with an L-shaped bench ... and two 50-inch flat screen TVs. Plus, it's got an Avorza sound system, bar set up and an ice maker! 

It's the perfect ride for a guy who wants to party RESPONSIBLY ... it's like Gronk's party bus on steroids. 

Your move, Gronk.

Chris Johnson

Allegedly Smashed Rolls-Royce

...NFL Star Calls B.S.

7/27/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0721-chris-johnson-GETTY-01Chris Johnson is accused of trashing a rental car -- a $300,000 rental car -- but the running back says he's caught a shameless attempted cash grab ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Johnson rented a Rolls-Royce Ghost in January 2014 ... from Just 4 Luxury in Miami. J4L claims CJ paid cash upfront for 2 days, but kept the car for almost 5. They also say he ran up the miles and smashed the grill ... which had to be replaced.

The rental company's honchos tell us they plan to sue if Johnson doesn't pony up cash to cover the following: 

-Rental, 3 additional days at $1,100 per day = $3,300
-Mileage charge, 500 miles at $1.50 per mile = $750
-Replacement grill = $11,000
-Grill Installation = $1,500

That would bring Johnson's tab to $16,550 -- but a rep for the NFL star says CJ denies any wrongdoing, and has paid everything he owes. The rep adds ... the car wasn't damaged, and the allegations "are not substantiated."

Whoever's responsible ... check out the dinged up grill. THAT's $11,000?!! Your Honda Accord has its advantages.

A Brand New Whip!

Exclusive Details

0722-sub-ashley-theophane-instagram-01Life's good when you're on The Money Team ... 'cause one of Floyd Mayweather's proteges tells TMZ Sports the boxing champ hooked him up with a brand spanking new ride worth over $30k!

Okay, it's not a Bugatti or a Ferrari, but Ashley Theophane -- who's 38-6 -- ain't complaining. Theophane tells us he was chillin' at home when Floyd called and said meet him at a dealership. 

When he arrived Floyd handed him the keys to a fully loaded 2015 Chrysler 300. Theophane says he needed a car, but had no idea his mentor was hooking it up like this. 

AT says it's Floyd's way of showing him love for winning 5 straight fights. He added, "Floyd makes so much money. He likes to take care of his team."

Grandmaster Flash

Stupid Valet Gave ...

My Car to a THIEF!!!

7/23/2015 2:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0723-grandmaster-flash-INSTAGRAM-01Grandmaster Flash lost his prized and customized possession because an overly generous -- and not so bright valet -- simply handed over the keys to a car thief.

Flash tells us his custom made 2014 white Dodge Charger-- nicknamed The Ghost -- was jacked from a parking structure in NYC last Thursday. Most frustrating of all ... he says the parking attendant didn't ask for any ID or parking ticket from the thief.  

Law enforcement sources tell us cops were called, but that was merely to take down a stolen car report. The Ghost had long since vanished by the time cops got there. 

Flash -- famous for rap classics like "White Lines" and "The Message" -- also lost some vintage vinyl records that were in his whip. He's considering a lawsuit against the parking company.

Don't push him 'cause he's close to the edge ...

Reggie Bush has normal people problems -- the price of gas is absolutely crushing his new 49ers contract ... every time he has to refuel his feakin' Rolls-Royce. Yeah, don't feel too bad for him.

Check out the hit his wallet took. It'll make you feel better about your Prius ... for a while. 

Then you'll quickly go back to wishing you had a Rolls.

Caitlyn Jenner

Not Balling THAT Hard ...

Her Lambo Is Just For Show

7/23/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0722_caitlyn_jenner_car_splashCaitlyn Jenner is not quite the lady pimp she appeared to be ... but she's definitely as showy. 

As we told you ... a Lamborghini Aventador -- base price $400k -- showed up in her driveway on Tuesday ... via flatbed delivery truck. While we're sure she COULD afford one ... turns out Caitlyn did not buy it -- it's just a rental for her docuseries. 

Sources close to "I Am Cait" production tell us the show rented the exotic whip for a scene they're shooting.

Remember, Caitlyn's still into Bruce's fave hobbies -- driving ATVs and motorcycles, so it's not shocking she might feel the need for Lambo speed.

New Killer Curves

0721-caitlyn-jenner-lambo-delivery-SPLASH-01Caitlyn Jenner has something sexy, new and Italian to flaunt ... her custom made exotic sports car.

Caitlyn had her tricked out Lambo Aventador delivered by flatbed truck to her Malibu home early Tuesday. It's a pretty Kardashian-esque purchase -- remember, Kanye's got one of his own. Base price is $400k, so you can bet this bad boy ran her more like half a mil.

Sorry, Caitlyn but we already see trouble brewing. Getting in and out of a Lambo in a pencil skirt can't be easy!

Tracy Morgan took a huge leap forward in his recovery, and he did it in style.

Tracy -- who was severely injured in a horrible car crash a year ago -- was cruising in a sick, silver Lambo Saturday afternoon on 5th Ave in NYC.

Steve Lacy, the anchor at Fox 5 in New York, took the pic. He says he first noticed the Lambo, and was floored when he saw who was behind the wheel. Steve says he asked Tracy how he was doing and the comedian said he was good and flashed the peace sign.

Lacy says Morgan "was just like the Tracy we knew."

EXCLUSIVE

0709_floyd_mayweather_jeep_launch

Another day, another fancy whip for Floyd Mayweather ... this time the luxury gearhead is going off-road  ... dropping some serious cash to upgrade an ordinary Jeep into a Money-worthy stunt mobile.

TMZ Sports spoke with Alex Vega -- the customizing guru down at The Auto Firm in Miami -- and he tells us Mayweather dipped into his deep pockets and pulled out $100k to transform his 2015 Jeep Wrangler.

We're told Floyd wanted every inch of the ride customized ... so he added a new front hood, Avorza 35 inch wheels, new bumpers, and red LED base lights to make the streets glow red when he cruises.

He wasn't done there though ... 'cause the guys at The Auto Firm went all futuristic on the Jeep adding a super slick iPad integration system which controls everything inside of the vehicle.

Hey, it might not be a $4.8 million supercar ... but it definitely has more room for strippers.

breaking news

0708-arturo-vidal-getty-01International soccer superstar Arturo Vidal -- who plays for Juventus and the Chilean national team -- struck a HUGE deal with prosecutors and won't go to jail for a drunken Ferrari crash. 

28-year-old Vidal totaled his expensive Ferrari on the way from a casino in Chile last month -- and reportedly trashed a police officer who responded to the scene. 

But he won't go to jail -- instead, officials say he agreed to write a huge check to the other driver in the accident (the amount of the check hasn't been disclosed) ... and his driver's license has been yanked for 2 years. 

He also apologized to the cop he insulted -- and was ordered to give motivational speeches to inmates. 

As for the Ferrari -- he can afford a new one ... the guy makes more than $8 million per year.
