Mercedes McLaren SLR of Paris Hilton
As the name suggests, the SLR was a result of a combination of Mercedes-Benz and McLaren. It combines the aesthetics and design of Mercedes and the performance of the racing-oriented McLaren. Merc already owned around 40% of McLaren back then which is why it chose the carmaker to borrow the engine from. Paris had a silver 2-door roadster. However, as her fame faded away, she decided to sell the car as well. Her SLR is now owned by Ed Bolian of VinWiki. He has reportedly spent thousands of dollars to keep the exotic in a great condition.
