Oprah Winfrey circa 2004: "You get a car! You get a car! You get a car! Everybody gets a car!"The Kardashians seem to live by the words of
This week, Kylie Jenner — who, at barely 18, is the owner of a $2.7 million home — spent some of the money from her new app/reality show/sale of her soul to purchase a black Mercedes-Benz sedan for her friend Jordyn Woods. Jordyn, who the Internet tells us is a "professional best friend," was feeling "blessed and grateful" to be given such a fine automobile.
No doubt. If we were gifted with a new luxury vehicle, we'd feel some other things, including "shock" and "disbelief" because those types of things don't happen — unless you're a Kardashian. The first family of reality TV is constantly giving and receiving cars as gifts, as if that's not a totally crazy gift to give someone.
Now this is by no means a complete history of Kardashian kar giving — because when we start reading too many stories about the family to do research, our pulses start to race, our palms sweat, and we become dizzy — but here are some of their other recent(ish) vehicular gifts:
Tyga presented Kylie with a Ferrari, estimated at $320,000, for her 18th birthday in August.
Khloé and her ex-boyfriend French Montana gave Diddy a pearl Cadillac Escalade, which starts at $72,000, last year.
French gifted Khloé a white Jeep Wrangler Sahara, which starts at about $30,000, for her birthday last year.
Kris wrapped up a Range Rover for Kendall, which is priced starting at about $35,000, on her 16th birthday.
So why are they always gifting cars? Perhaps they have some $ort of deal in place with car dealerships — discounts in exchange for publicity — because most dealers would keep their client list private instead of, say, tweeting about their purchases.

Or perhaps they just like us writing about all the fabulous, high-level gifts they give. We'd venture to say that maybe it's a little of both.
