There would me almost none who would own a limo,as every event they go to each wrestler gets a rented limo from the promoters.

It's sad to see Bentleys and Lamborghinis splashed with bling and then used as props in Rap videos where they're being driven at 10 miles an hour with the doors open!

Great thread. Seems Hollywood prefers British cars. There are plenty of Bentleys, Range Rovers, Jaguars and Aston Martins. Glad to see so many Lambos too.

Well, I don't think they should be used as props in a video. Especially if they're either just parked or driven at 2 km/h. That just isn't right IMO. It doesn't do good for the image of a Lamborghini. They might have the best cars, but they have bought them not because they like driving at 100 km/h around a corner or putting it through its paces in the Isle of Man. They've bought it to prove their wealth.

Chill Suhaas, no matter whats the purpose behind buying the supercar, at least they have dared to buy it so that people can see it. Not everybody can treat and enjoy their supercars like say, Jay Leno or Jason Kay. Of all the Ferraris and Lamborghinis on the planet, only 1% (even may be less than that) are used the way they are supposed to be used. Rest are all posers.

And recently, I came across a thread in the forum that was started by VLOCT in which he's penned down his ownership experience of his 911. I sincerely hope everyone takes a leaf from his book.

Anyway we're going terribly OT.

Is Kirsten Dunst giving the photographer the finger in that pic on page 4? That looks hilarious!

Default Threads on cars used by..

Lads,

How about threads on the rides of :
1. F1 drivers ( both past such as James Hunt, Jim Clark,Ayrton Senna) and present ( Button, Vettel)
2. Businessmen & industrialists ( such as Fiat's Sergio Marchonne, BP's Hayward et.al)
3. Footballers (e.g., Messi, Pele - he has an old Merc, don't know much, Lampard)

Regards

Time to get jealous Paris Hilton has received for her 30th birthday, a LEXUS LF-A!!! Not fair? You bet! Especially when just 500 of these are going to be ever sold.
Gifted by her boyfriend, this $325,000 supercar wears factory yellow paint but not long before she gets it painted pink

The yellow car shown here was given to her as a prank. The real colour of her car is white.

Some people just have all the luck

The front of the LFA looks so a bit odd,modern cars are so hell bent of aerodynamics,i guess the work of a designer is not too important.

But surely one of the best soundtracks from a supercar!

PS:What is she doing in the last pic?

@avishar: I think she's fishing money or keys out of her boyfriend's pocket. I'm just being innocent.

Jason Statham drives an Audi in real life too
Paris Hilton in a pink Bentley
Pierce Brosnan drives an Aston Martin,
