We LOVE Custom Exotics

You know, there aren't exactly 50,000 Ford GT samples out there like the Ford Mustang; in-fact, there's probably only 5,000 or something! With a price tag of around $160,000 and change, we always get nervous when somebody (i.e. wealthy and eccentric) goes and changes OEM perfection. We can safely say though that the slick Ford GT above looks even more sporty with its custom metallic red paint, deep-dish chromed rims and cream-colored leather interior (we hate light interiors since they show dirt immediately, but we'll let it slide for the time being...)

For factory color schemes, the glossy red with white stripes is still the most delicious. We just want to polish the glass on our monitor and take a bite!

Here we have Saleen's S281-SC, which is Ford's Mustang in a redesigned, retooled and supercharged outfit. It wears well and from all the brands out there specializing in Ford Mustangs, Saleen does it best. The damn thing is subtle, wild, classy, outrageous and sporty -- all at the same time. Roush Mustangs have too many frivolous design features that detract from the "eye candy" effect of a Saleen. Hey, that stunning Beryllium Orange metallic paint doesn't hurt either! (It's a $17,000 option)

This Is How Angelina Jolie Drives Around
Yes, it's another edition of "What Are Hollywood Stars Driving?!?"

We at autothing are thrilled! Angelina Jolie is here in our hometown of Chicago for the next couple of weeks working on her newest movie, Wanted. Here she is filming an action sequence while laying on the hood of a Dodge Viper.

The Great American Run

Say hello again to Barricade, the evil (but beautiful!) police car from the recent Transformers movie. In reality, it's a 550hp Saleen S281-SC Extreme and available for around $75,000. Check out the additional pictures for a tour of Saleen's "Great American Run" event, where people with too much money spend it on the fastest and most desirable cars in the world, which they proceed to drive across the country as a group. There's even a Bugatti Veyron!

Money Don't Make You Smart!

Florida police officers said Ronald Tridico, 39, was apparently speeding in his brand new, bright yellow Lamborghini Murcielago near Orlando when he lost control and crashed. Now get this -- he proceeded to leave both the scene of the accident as well as his slightly injured wife!

This guy is quite the winner! Thanks to his drunk driving escapade, your insurance bill will go up a little next year... hey, somebody's got to pay for the damage and it sure isn't going to be Ronald!   more...

Damn Porsche & Their Sexy Cars

Porsche is getting into the design business a la Mercedes-Benz' Designo Series by introducing their first ever "Design Edition 1" model via the Cayman.

If the future continues to look sporty and gorgeous like this new model, we welcome the upcoming variants contained within this limited edition series.   more...

A Rare Land Rover. No, Really!

Only 250 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Limited Editions will be coming to the United States, so start seeking out that future wealthy spouse now if you want in. Land Rover doesn't do anything limited very often, so this model is pretty unique in that it actually incorporates design features from the Range Stormer, a concept vehicle presented a few years ago.

This baby will probably cost around $90,000 and everyone in Hollywood will buy them up (just like most of the Ranger Rovers sold in the United States).   more...

Oh Yes, You Touched It!
Yes, it's another edition of "What Are Hollywood Stars Driving?!?"

Alli Sims, who is a close friend of Britney Spears, is being used as a hostile witness by Kevin Federline in their upcoming money battle child custody battle. This is a funny clip showing K. Fed's legal team serving Alli with a subpoena when she leaves some club. Nothing better than a good 10-second legal chase!

This Little MINI Is Fast

MINI continues to impress us with their everlasting and singular design: the Cooper. In an effort to keep things a bit peppy and fresh, here's yet another special edition in the form of the 2008 MINI Cooper S John Cooper Works Challenge. Sure it's a mouthful, but since this $70,000 car is not street legal, don't even bother trying to remember it. Instead, buy a MINI Key Chain!   more...

Ford's Harley-Davidson F-150 Is Fast

The new 2008 Ford Harley-Davidson F-150 is expensive, fast,  a bit under-styled and yet still so darn attractive that thousands of people will quickly put down over $40,000 for the right to own one. In fact, Ford has sold nearly 50,000 Harley-Davidson F-150's and F-250's, all of which mean killer profits considering how inexpensive a mass-produced pickup truck is to build (yes, even when using those pricy union members).

As an added bonus for 2008, the new HD F-150 comes with an optional factory installed Saleen twin-screw supercharger, which pushes the horsepower to 450. The supercharger -- identical to that found on Saleen's wicked S331-SC truck -- costs about $6,500, but like all Saleen products, it's top-of-the-line.   more...

Let's Hope It's The First & Last Time

We got yet another email forward containing some new photos of the bridge collapse that recently occurred. Take a look, as the close-up's kind of make you realize how large this thing really was!

Fire In The Hole!
(YouTube has removed most videos for police investigations)


Funny Videos

Check out this awful stuff! Jerks are going to fast food restaurants, ordering [and actually paying] for the largest soda/milkshake and then THROWING IT AT THE DRIVE-THRU SERVER. Just watch the little movie -- it explains everything. This is also the only video available where the aforementioned jerk forgets to put his car into "park," and gets a drink thrown right back at him. That's karma!

Seriously, this whole "fad" is hard to believe until you actually see it for yourself. Think about it -- the employee at McDonald's or Wendy's works a 9-hour day for about $9.00 an hour when a car filled with jerks decides to well, physically assault them!

Somebody tell these pricks that a large Coca-Cola drink weighs like one or two pounds! We would totally jump out that drive-thru window, chase their car down the street and use the ice-scoop to scratch a Ronald McDonald outline into their hood.

Kidding! We would actually call the cops first, THEN start the scratching!

Audi's Speed Demon SUV

The Audi Q7 V12 TDI will be hitting the market in the second half of 2008 and as the TDI initials indicate, it may be a strictly diesel powered model.

Although Europe will receive the classy brute first, this limited-edition Q7 produces 500 horsepower, giving it the ability to do 0-62mph in just 5.5 seconds. We will eagerly await its arrival here in Chicago, because us Midwesterners love our SUVs, especially the fast, high-end models like the Porsche Cayenne Turbo and the more subdued BMW X5 4.8i.

Those Pesky Paparazzi Caused It
Yes, it's another edition of "What Are Hollywood Stars Driving Crashing?!?"

Wow! Britney Spears finally delivered after all these weeks of boring appearances in and around Los Angeles. She finally "crashed" her Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class convertible -- wouldn't you know it -- into another Mercedes-Benz station wagon.

Britney is poised as always and shows complete concern. For HER car! She doesn't even go look at the other car to check out the potential damage.

It happens right away in the video and thank god for the distracting paparazzi, it's all caught on camera. Britney handled it pretty well in-fact, as Paris Hilton's past Bentley GT crash almost resulted in a bunch of paparazzi getting run over (unfortunately each photographer got away safely with $3,000 photos for Star and National Enquirer).

One Hot Car...
2008 BMW 550i Sport Package

We were oddly bored with the BMW 5-Series ever since it was revised with that "flame surfacing" design (as BMW calls it) a few years ago, and the low sales reflected our own displeasure with the car. Its styling was simply too subtle, which is just PERFECT if you wanted a Toyota Camry or something... No worries though!

BMW has gone and revised the entire 5-Series line-up with new exterior design cues and an awesome set of interior refinements, the best of which can be found on the BMW 550i Sport Package (see delicious photos). We've already experienced the new interior and it is gorgeous: the leather seats are ultra-supple with really comfortable headrests, the doors -- and even door handles! -- have all-new and totally curvaceous design features, and the center console is simply perfect with a contoured shift. With 360 horsepower, this baby is a cool $70,000 and worth it.

Here you can see the LED taillights, dual-tip exhaust (unfortunately the full exhaust set-up is still reserved for the exclusive M5 model) and classic yet sporty curves. This car proves that you don't have to be the most expensive or exclusive automobile to gain some respect, but turning some heads doesn't hurt either.   more...

So Trashy, So Beautiful

This lady suffers from COPD: Crazy Old Person's Disease! Among many other things, she wants to go to Las Vegas (she can't stand Palm Springs), needs her inhaler (due to second-hand smoke from people who don't exist) and wants to hijack a police car (to turn on the windshield wipers). In a nutshell, SHE'S INSANE!! Enjoy.

She's Not In Prison Yet?
Yes, it's another edition of "What Are Hollywood Stars Driving Crashing?!?"

Singer Brandy is still walking around after causing an accident LAST YEAR that resulted in some poor lady's death. What's up with the crappy laws in this country?! According to TMZ.com, prosecutors in Los Angeles are torn on whether or not to prosecute Brandy for a fatal car accident she caused last December.

 
The woman was killed when Brandy rear-ended another car on the highway in her Land Rover Range Rover, triggering a multi-car accident. Investigators are still trying to find out how fast she was driving and if she braked before hitting the car in front of her, which then rammed the victim's car into a concrete barrier.
 
The charge is said to be manslaughter and Brandy is already getting sued by the woman's family and husband. We don't know how to feel about this mess. Part of us thinks it was an accident and she should be let go. But another part thinks why the hell did she rear-end a car in front of her? Maybe she's just a shit driver, but should she go to jail for that? OK... Yeah, she should! She killed somebody!!

Girl was probably on the cell phone chatting up a storm. We've seen how people on cell phones drive and they drive like Brandy!

Hummer's Pickup Truck

We love all the Hummer models, but at a certain point they should look a little bit different than the other models, don't you think? The Hummer H3T pickup is expected to drop as a 2009 model, so all you farmers with mud bogs and giant strawberry patches will want to line right up for this bad boy!   more...

HAMANN Does Land Rover Nicely

HAMANN'S Range Rover Sport "Conqueror" package is pretty slick, especially considering that few after-market tuners go into SUV-related territory. Even more interesting is how HAMANN chose Land Rover, a brand not typically known to attract owners with time to customize their rides (aside from Land Rover License Plates).
 
 
If you're not familiar with the Range Rover Sport, you should definitely visit the Land Rover site and check it out, because the HAMANN body kit is hard to distinguish apart from the factory body, which is really quite sporty to begin with. The Rang Rover Sport is even offered with a supercharger straight from Land Rover, so be sure to check that option when placing an order for one.

$3.00 Carnival T-Shirt!

This is Amanda Lynn Bailey from Florida. This hot 41-year-old piece was arrested early this morning on suspicion of DUI. This her second DUI arrest in the past three months. Amanda is a dealer at the Hard Rock Casino in Tampa, Florida.
 
The smartass police clerk made sure to include Amanda's lovely t-shirt when they snapped her mug shot. We don't know whether to lock her up or give her a high-five. First of all, driving drunk is totally not hot, but wearing this t-shirt while being busted for DUI is so hot. Quite the dilemma!

Q: "How Many Clowns Can Fit In A Veyron?"
A: "None! They're All Busy Painting Them At The Bugatti Factory!"

The worst part about having the ultimate vehicle -- a Bugatti Veyron -- is the fact that you can't buy anything better! This car looks like an Armani suit, but it's a design that seems to be somehow out-of-date in a way we can't really describe. Maybe it's the ridiculous two-tone circus colors most privileged owners are selecting. Who knows!
 
 
The one shown belongs to a Russian oil tycoon who lives in Dubaiís Burj Al-Arab, were it was spotted in the best parking spot available: the front door entrance area. Well, this exotic clown car may impress the valet guy, but not us!

Mini-Lohan Is Coming Soon...
Yes, it's another edition of "What Are Hollywood Stars Driving?!?"

First, that picture above is of Ali Lohan (sister of Lindsay Lohan) and her New Yorker girlfriends driving around the neighborhood in a golf cart somewhere in Long Island. Fortunately, she wasn't busted for driving drunk. YET! Give her time, she's young. 
 
Lindsay is staying at her mother's house in Merrick and of course, mom took some time out to issue a statement. A brief one though. "She's doing well" is all that woman said. She must be busy brokering other interviews!
 
Those girls with Ali are just soooooo Long Island, not that it's a bad thing necessarily. You can probably smell the Aquanet hairspray coming out of your computer screen. You'll likely see them on MTV's Sweet Sixteen show next.

Just A Bad Angle... Seriously!

Ashley Olsen is quite the awkward looking stunner and picks her cars equally well by driving a Mercedes-Benz G-Class SUV. Yes, her and Mary Kate are both spending their money on things that are black. Exciting, we know!

He Can Afford A Rolls-Royce Phantom?!?
Yes, it's another edition of "What Are Hollywood Stars Driving?!?"

Prince von Anhalt claimed he was Anna Nicole Smith's baby daddy and that he had an affair with the former Playboy model while married to Zsa Zsa Gabor. Well, Entertainment Tonight is reporting that this crazy ho now claims he was robbed by three women driving a white Chrysler Sebring convertible. He says he was driving down California's Bellagio Road in his 2006 Rolls-Royce Phantom during the early morning when the three women forced him off the road and robbed him at gunpoint.

The women took everything from him, including his clothes. He was left naked and handcuffed to his steering wheel.

OH PLEASE! Someone pissed off the wrong HOOKER! You know he picked up some skanky ho! Regardless, that hooker in question is A-OK in our book.

We were praying that one of these "three women" took a picture of him -- or better yet a video -- and would release it to the world! Our prayer was mostly answered. (Curiously, he was found taped and not handcuffed to the steering wheel. Hmm...)

Like A Coupe With Four Doors: Pointless

We so love the MINI Cooper in every way. If we see one at a Home Depot or the local Chipotle -- where the Burrito Bol totally rules! -- we'll go and look thru the windows until the owner comes around and calls the police. Well, you get the picture.

However, MINI is now releasing the Cooper Clubman, an extended model with more space accessible via two suicide doors.

This is like that Mercedes-Benz CLS, which Mercedes calls a "four-door coupe". Umm, hello! It's NOT a coupe if it has four doors, regardless of what your advertising department thinks. The new MINI Cooper Clubman suffers from the same logic, but more in terms of purpose: people who buy MINI Coopers want a small, great looking car with no space!   more...

Such A Fine Lady
Yes, it's another edition of "What Are Hollywood Stars Driving?!?"

Britney Spears, blah blah blah. Here she is, the queen of class and sophistication, walking past her Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class convertible. Ok, we're bored already!
