The image of cars on a parking
Maybe you can’t buy love. But you can sure as heck buy a token of it.
Rihanna has just dropped $1 million (or, as she calls it, manicure money) on a stunning custom Mercedes Benz SLR Stirling Moss, a vehicle so exclusive only 75 have ever been made, as a birthday present for Chris Brown. Brown, an exotic-car fanatic, turns 24 on May 5 and has obviously been a great guy all year, so he totally deserves it.
A source told the Daily Mirror that “Rihanna has spent more than a million on his main gift, a custom-made car. She’s had his initials put on the red leather seats.”
The article also notes the gift is supposed to be a “surprise.” Which it would have been, if news outlets the world over hadn’t found out about it.
Oh well, it’s still a mighty fine gift. Here’s a video of the SLR in action.
