Stars and Their Cars Paris Hilton Blings Out Her Pink Bentley
Stars and Their Cars. Us Weekly magazine might tell you that stars are “just like us.” But, in reality, they aren’t. We find they tend to drive better cars — much better cars, ranging from the absurd to the eco-conscious to the practical-chic. But this is nothing new. The love affair between celebs and tasty automobiles is well-documented. And while piloting a million-dollar-plus Ferrari Enzo around town to pick up, say, an iced caffè mocha at the local Starbucks might seem like overkill to you, it’s normal to these luminaries. Here we highlight 10 coveted, cutting-edge or just plain weird rides and the celebs who own them.
Paris Hilton has gone bling extreme with her new custom pink Bentley. She has ordered a £200,000 (approximately $283,500 USD) diamond encrusted dashboard for her car. She had one of her staff call the Bentley plant where the car was made to see if they could accommodate her desire for a bit more flash on the dash. An employee said: “When the man said she wanted to stud the dashboard with a couple of hundred grand’s worth of diamonds, we were stunned. We’re used to dealing with the stars so we expect the odd extravagance, but this is something else. I guess she’s not hit too badly by the recession.” This custom addition to her car will cost more than the car, which set her back £140,000.
And Paris wonders why people make fun of her??!!!?!?
