ENGLISHTOWN, NJ (Wyclef Fans Website) - Wyclef Jean took home top honors on Saturday (August 3) at Funkmaster Flex's Second Annual Celebrity Car Show at Raceway Park in Englishtown, New Jersey.

Jean's vehicles included a Pagani Zonda C12 worth approximately $800,000, a custom monster truck with hydraulics, a F1 McClaren racecar worth approximately $1.8 million, a custom Spiderman chopper Harley Davidson motorcycle, a white Bentley, a vintage convertible Cadillac Eldorado, and a limited-edition Ducati motorcycle. In addition to being named the overall winner, Jean was also awarded the best display trophy.

Last year's winner, Baby of the Big Tymers, came in a close second, taking home the best fleet and best truck honors. The rapper's cars included a red 2003 Range Rover, a red 2003 Hummer, a red 2003 Cadillac Escalade fully equipped with 24-inch rims, a orange Harley pick-up truck, and a red Mercedes-Benz convertible.

Jean and Baby squared off against each other on the PA system, with Jean declaring that although Baby was the Number One Stunna, he was the Number One Haitian. The jousting ended with Jean playing a sound byte over the PA system that said, "The Number One Stunna has been terminated."

Some of the other winners included Busta Rhymes, who won best SUV honors for his Hummer and best exotic car for his orange Lamborghini, and Sean "P. Diddy" Combs, who won the award for best antique or classic for his 1966 red-and-white Corvette convertible.

Other participants included Cam'ron, who showcased a matching BMW 745is and Mercedes-Benz CL 55, as well as Fat Joe, Funkmaster Flex, and Angie Martinez.

Many of hip-hop's brightest stars turned out for the event, including Jadakiss, Fabolous, DMX, Lil' Kim, Raekwon, Tyson Beckford, Rockwilder, Mannie Fresh, Lil' Wayne, TQ, Foxy Brown, Queen Latifah, Nate Dogg, Rah Digga, Spliffstar, Rampage, and Pepa.

The day's festivities were capped off by performances by Foxy Brown and the Big Tymers.
