Novak Djokovic has earned more than $140 million in prize money over his accomplished career, plus plenty of other millions in endorsement deals, so there wasn't much of a question in his mind when the possibility was offered to rent a private home during the U.S. Open.

Just think of all the things you could do in a LaFerrari Aperta. You could use it to scream across a racing tarmac at more than 200 mph, rip around hairpin turns with ease or just gaze in awe at the monument to Italian automotive excellence. Golfer Ian Poulter, on the other hand, uses his $2.2 million speedster for something else: trick shot videos.
