Looks who's driving around in the Lexus LF-A!! Why, its Mr. Pagani himself.

Not sure if he owns it, but it seems as though he is already missing the Zonda's V12 wail and sough resort in that glorious sounding V10 of the Lexus.

..and we though Chris Brown hated his cars only.

After what he did to the Gallardo, look what has he done to his home

Apparently, the authorities have fined him $400 and given him 30 days to get rid of the graffiti.

Yikes! That's gotta hurt!

Kanye was away when his Nero Nemesis Aventador was being delivered back to Kim's house and her automatic doors was a tad too fast to close on the hypercar.

Bad day at work for the chap who was driving it.

Its based on a written off Corvette and now develops approx 750hp.

yea.. it hurts! I don't get it, don't they have sensors to the automatic doors. Even a cheap garage door has sensors that stops it from closing if something is blocking it.

Justin Bieber commits a hit and run in his Ferrari 458 Italia.

In his defence, the paparazzi was in his way and he had complained the flashes were blinding him before.

To me it looks like the paparazzi guy was faking the injury. It definitely looks like he was trying to get hit by the car on purpose maybe so that he could sue Bieber later and make a quick buck.

Hollywood actor Bradley Cooper takes his #KTM 1190 #RC8R for a short spin on the streets of #LA. Unlike most celebs, its great to see The Hangover star fully geared up.

Jerry Seinfeld in his new Porsche 918 Spyder. No surprises here

IMO Jerry and Ellen DeGeneres has to be THE most dedicated Porsche'ista celebs out there.

Didnt know this but F1 champ Lewis Hamilton owns a Pagani Zonda 760LH. I guess the LH are his initials as the car was customized for him.

Default Steve Jobs' BMW to go under the hammer

Apple Founder Steve Jobs' BMW Z8 (2000) convertible is going to be auctioned by RM Sotheby’s at New York in December this year. Apparently Larry Ellison, then CEO of Oracle convinced Jobs to buy this car which according to him as reflective of his (Jobs') own products and character.
The car which would have cost $128,000 when it was bought new was sold by Jobs in 2003. It is now expected to fetch $400,000.
(Source: The Hindustan Times


International Celebrities and their Cars!-bmwz8.jpg

The car in question is an all-aluminium body sports convertible with a 4.9L V8 engine that made 400HP and 500NM torque and is capable of a top speed of 250 km/hour. (Source: Wikipedia)


I think this car indeed has the minimalist elegance that one associates with Apple phones and notebooks.

If Steve Jobs was looking to buy a car in 2017, which "minimalistically elegant but technologically advanced" automobile would you recommend?
