London: Beyonce Knowles has gifted her hubby Jay Z the world`s fastest road car on his 41st birthday.

The 29-year-old singer treated the car-mad 99 Problems rapper to a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport, costing 1.3 million pounds.

She had to wait a year after ordering the supercar, which can do 255mph and goes from 0-60 in 2.5 seconds.

But she managed to keep it a secret - and Jay-Z was thrilled with the surprise, which adds to his already impressive fleet.

"Jay-Z has one of the most enviable collections of bling motors in the world - but even for him the Bugatti is special,” the Sun quoted a source as saying.

"Obviously the money isn`t a factor for Beyonce, but Jay will be touched that out of everything she could have bought him, she chose something he`ll treasure for years. He``s in for the ride of his life," the source said.

Jay-Z already owns a Maybach 62S, Ferrari F430 Spider and a Pagani Zonda Roadster, and is an ambassador for American motor giant GMC.

Last year he and Beyonce became the highest-earning couple in showbiz, pocketing 68million pounds between them from June 2008 to June 2009.
