When Pete Wentz Got Pulled Over in His Mercedes S65

April 4, 2008

Guitarist/Bassist Pete Wentz of the band Fall Out Boy was recently pulled over by the man in blue (a cop) for speeding. The car he was riding during that time? A Mercedes-Benz S65. A great ride to get caught for speeding. After all, its engine is made for high-speed performance. If only Pete chose the right time and place to test just how great a ride his Mercedes really is.

Since we’re in the subject of how powerful this classy yet simple car is, then it would be a great time to point out that under its hood lays a bi-turbo V12 engine which gives off 604 horsepower. If you’re wondering about its torque, it’s 738 lb.-ft. at 2,000 to 4,000 rpm. Impressive? Definitely. This four-door luxury sedan is able to accommodate five passengers and is available in four trims. The S65 AMG, which Pete was driving, comes with a hard drive that has 20 GB, as well as a GPS Navigation Aid with Voice Activation. Safety is not a problem with its 4-wheel anti-lock brakes. Other safety features include front and rear crumple zones, side guard door beams, and front and rear 3-point seatbelts. The interior has seats wrapped in AMG exclusive upgraded leather seats. It sports 20-inch alloy wheels, Nano-Particle Scratch Resistant Paint and stainless steel exhaust pipes to complete its sleek yet simple look.

Britney’s Cars for Sale

March 28, 2008

Britney. When the headlines display that two-syllable name, one doesn’t even have to wonder who the Britney is said headline is referring to. From teeny bopper super pop star to a sexy diva super pop star, Britney Spears has managed to make a name that’s all hers in the crowded world of celebrities. From number one hits to crazy public stunts, Britney has done it all. You think there’s nothing left for Britney to do? Think again. But don’t guess too hard. The name of this blog ought to clue you in…

That’s right. The latest news about Britney is that her cars are being sold. Among her vehicle assets are the two white Mercedes Benz (SL65 and CLK350), one white Mini Cooper and one black Audi in which she was all seen driving around at some point in her earlier career. During a court hearing, Jamie Spears (Britney’s dad) was given the right to either have Britney’s seven cars sold or disposed of. Jamie’s legal team opted to sell it, seeing that her fleet of seven cars is too much to keep around. Aside from that, she would be able to save a massive amount of money by selling them.

Apparently, due to the turmoil that the pop princess’ life has been – from her divorce to the issue about her two children being not properly cared for – the court had deemed it necessary to hand off the legal rights of he selling of Britney’s car to her father. Jamie Spears is in charge of some of his daughter’s properties or assets until the 31st of July.

From “Hit Me Baby One More Time” hit song to “Chaos” television reality show, from giving the all-American girl-next-door image to public breakdowns, there is nothing Britney isn’t doing that the media isn’t following. And this latest regarding her father selling her cars is no exception.

March 11, 2008

Some celebrities – Hollywood celebs, sports stars, music artists — like to keep a low profile while others tend to bask in the spotlight directed to them. They all approach and treat their stardom in varying ways, whether it’s about their preferences when staying in a hotel or their take on menu when going for a tour. It’s a real variety out there and it’s time to take a look at some of the vehicles of celebrities. Vehicles which are meant to grab attention and make people stop and stare.

The first on the list is Britney Spears’ 2005 Hummer H2. It’s huge, it’s pink and it’s owned by none other than the Pop Princess herself, Britney Spears. This Hummer H2 is powered by a 6-liter V8 engine and has a 4-speed automatic transmission. Based from the military-based H1, this Hummer was built as a more compact, more civilian-friendly and less costly than SUVs. It can accommodate up to five passengers with an optional third row.

Rapper baby Bash owns a 2005 Dodge Magnum. This sleek car of his is done in two-tone, sure to catch anyone’s attention. This one’s a wagon with three trim levels offered: SE, SXT and RT. The SE houses a 2.7-liter V6 engine with 190 hp while the SXT is powered by a V6 with 250 hp. With the RT trim comes a 5.7-lier V8 engine with 340 hp. This Dodge seems to be designed to look cool and to give a powerful performance.

Basketball star Tracy McGrady preferred the 2002 Ferrari Spyder 360 Modena F1 as one of his choices of cars. It comes with leather seats, a blast of an effective air conditioning system, power windows, locks and mirrors, and AM/FM radio with CD player. This being a supercar seems to be a fitting choice for such a distinguished player.

Scott Storch: “You Can’t Compromise”

February 19, 2008

“You can’t rush into the first deal that somebody offers you. As much as you feel like you need to or whatever emergency it is financially, you can’t compromise. It might work for you at the time, but you might regret it later. People have a hard time thinking of themselves as successful and [end up] limiting what their future can do if they sign to somebody exclusively or make the wrong decisions in a contract. My advice is, look before you leap.” These words came from Scott Storch, the famous record producer. Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Storch was an early member of The Roots. He was the man responsible for Dr. Dre’s comeback record, jumpstarting his popularity. After that project, Storch worked with Xzibit (the “X” lead single on the Resltess album back at 2001), Snoop Dogg (3 tracks on The Last Meal album), Beyonce (“Dangerously In Love”), 50 Cent (“Get Rich or Die Tryin’” and The Massacre), and Christina Aguilera (Stripped). Among his list of clients are Paris Hilton, Mario, R. Kelly, Mya, and Chamillionaire.

Now that his bank account’s reportedly around $70 million, it should come as no surprise that Storch’s car collection is as extravagant as his wardrobe and accessories. His car collection includes four Rolls-Royce Phantoms, one Rolls-Royce drop head coupe, a Bentley Azure, Bentley Continental GT, 1973 Jaguar XKE, Aston Martin Vanquish S, Maybach 62, Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, Ferrari Superamerica, Lamborghini Murcielago roadster, and finally a Bugatti Veyron 16.4. His taste in cars definitely holds no compromises, as it seems he wants nothing but the best.

He also owns a Ferrari 612 Scaglietti. This car model is the successor of the 456M and is named after the well-known coachbuilder of Ferrari, Sergio Scaglietti. Its engine is the 5748 cc, 12-cylinder, 48-valve, 65°V and has 434 lb-ft of torque at 5,250 rpm. It can accelerate from zero to 62 mph in 4.2 seconds, reaching 196 mph as its top speed. Large and spacious, this Ferrari has no problem zipping past.

Cars of the A-List Celebrities

February 7, 2008

It can’t be helped that when you’re a celebrity, every little thing about you is noticed. Most people drive cars and it is no earth-shattering news but when some popular celebrity is seen sporting a new car, it makes the headlines. Channel 4 has rounded up a list of celebrities, “strictly A-List”, and their cars. The first one is no other than 50 Cent.

It seems like 50 Cent isn’t all about making his mark in the music business. Even his choice of car is notable. Everyone would well remember how he had surprised the public and then raised some eyebrows when he announced that he has plans of making a drop-top out of his Rolls-Royce Phantom. 50 Cent had reportedly said, “I just want something everybody else doesn’t have… I don’t care if it messes up the electrical system. The roof is gonna be gone. I want something more sporty. I’m not an old man. That’s why I wanna chop the roof off it. I’ll leave the TVs. They had TVs in the package I got. It’s fully loaded. I’ll leave everything that’s in there. I’ll just cut the roof off. Make it into a ‘vertible.”

Bond movies are famous for hot cars and hot women and Bond girl Rosamund Pike, who appeared in “Die Another Day”, is holding back for that special car. Although a lot of choices had been given, she hasn’t settled on picking the right one for her just yet. To quote her, “I am looking for a Citroen DS. I have been on the internet but so far I haven’t found the one I want… I want one because it is beautiful, because the view is panoramic and because it is a design classic. It is a romantic car I think. From a style point of view.”

Jay Kay (a.k.a. Jamiroquai) already owns four Ferrari cars, which includes an Enzo. He said that the Enzo is “the best car” he has driven so far. Jay Kay claims, “I love the fact that my music allows me to have all these fantastic cars. I couldn’t choose between music and cars, but I am happiest in my cars.”

The other celebrities mentioned were Jonah Lomu, Vanessa-Mae, Tim Henman, Ewan McGregor, and Paul Newman.
