    Are you talking about Brittney Spears' car? Would'nt be suprised because of the people I have seen driving her car when she is gone(which is about 89% of the time).

    Can BS operate a diablo clutch? hehe, that thing prolly burns out every 10 days. She isn't too good with 360's as I recall..

    Spears wrecked a 360 not a Diablo and that was over a year ago anyway.

    britney spears wrecked a 360. well i guess she downshifted going fast into 2nd and it kicked out across 3 lanes or something. she had to pay $25,000 to fix the gearbox i think. it was a rental car and she only had it for about 2 hours.

    only celebrity diablo i know was missy eliotts being wrecked by someone driving it for her. i saw that one for sale somewhere.

    I remember seeing video of Rodman driving that car on one of those Celebrities Uncensored shows. Doesn't surprise me to hear he wrecked it.

    Do these celebs actually drive their cars or do they, like all their other purchases, have them for show to flash on MTV programs?!

    ...I guess it is good that they drive them... but they keep breaking them because they have no idea what they're doing, I'd have a little more respect if they shunted a wall at a track day but blowing a tranny on Rodeo Drive?!?!

    I'm sure they drive them...the problem is that I don't think many of them (or their assistants) have a sense of when to take their vehicles in for preventative maintenance and/or routine check-ups. As a result, the car's probably go into the shops when something breaks, which is probably too late.

    How often do you think Dennis Rodman's lambo when it for oil changes? :eek:
