She debuted the vehicle to showcase her fashion sense as she debuted her new Kmart (SHLD) line in New York.
The Nicki Minaj Collection is aimed at young women with her similar sense of “daring” fashion.
On Minaj’s success (via Celebrityworth.com):
Her rather meteoric rise was fueled by three immensely popular mixtapes put out between 2007 and 2009. She released her debut album, “Pink Friday” in 2010.
It was massively successful, and spawned the quadruple Platinum track, “Super Bass.” She went on to become the first female artist to have 7 tracks on the Billboard 100 at the same time.
As for her new car, the lifesize Barbie’s Lamborghini Aventador runs on a 6.3 liter V12 engine, which can reach 60 mph in a little under three seconds.
It has a top speed of 217 miles per hour.
