Rapper, Flo Rida - aka Tramar Dillard - hit a Low in his personal life after deciding to jump into his red and black Bugatti Veyron. after indulging in a "few" drinks on Wednesday night. Apparently, the American rapper and singer proved the Club Can’t Handle Me when he was caught driving under the influence at about 4am somewhere in Miami.
The police officer making the arrest said Flo Rida had bloodshot eyes and was slurring his speech when he was pulled over. In an attempt to escape the usual roadside sobriety test , Flo Rida told the police: "Officer I can’t do this. I don’t feel I can walk a straight line. I had a few drinks." Upon taking a hit of the breathalyzer, the rapper scored a 0.185 alcohol level which is more than twice the legal limit. Of course "few" was not the correct word as the breathalyzer test measured .185 or more than twice the legal limit. Bad move, Flo.
Flo Rida was arrested and charged with a DUI after the failed sobriety test, even though a large crowd had gathered to defend the rapper and convince the men in blue to let him go. Of course, it didn’t help that he was also driving under a suspended license. Didn’t he learn anything from Paris Hilton ?
Fans of the rapper can rest easy, though. Flo Rida easily posted the $2,000 bail needed to get him out of the clink and has been granted permission to head on overseas to Bangkok and Thailand for a series of gigs that had already been scheduled.
We’ve heard a lot of excuses from pulled over motorists trying to wrangle their way out of getting a ticket, but this one definitely takes the cake.
A 54-year-old man from Indianapolis was pulled over for speeding and reckless driving in Hawaii and in his defense, the man - without even blinking - informed the law enforcement officials that he was carrying a "message from God to speed."
Obviously, the officers found the excuse a little perplexing and when the man continued to resist arrest, they promptly shoved a tazer in him.
According to the cops, the man was racing up and down South Kihei Road in Maui at speeds of over 80 mph, well above the 30-mph speed limit in the zone. The man’s reckless driving caused a number of pedestrians to run for their lives, after the man’s Gran Theft Auto impersonation almost caused him to hit a pick-up truck, as well as a few scared joggers.
From there, it only got weirder. When the man was asked why he was speeding, he immediately replied by saying that he was "trying to reset the future, but he was not able to go fast enough to do that". From there, he pointed out to the dumbfounded officers that "he does not respect authority and he only answers to God," who he said "could destroy them in the blink of an eye."
Needless to say, the man was booked on a number of charges, including reckless driving, resisting an order to stop, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct.
Apparently, you could also charge him for taking "Lost" way too seriously.
What happens when people want a car so bad, but don’t have enough money to buy it? Well, they start building replicas. Sometimes these things go well, but most of the time they go horribly, horribly wrong. This Lamborghini Reventon is probably one of the more severe cases of instances when the result is one of the ugliest and most unsuccessful builds to date.
There’s a man over in China that drives an old Nissan A31, but his dream car has always been a Lamborghini Reventon . He eye-balled his Nissan and found ways to convert his daily driver into his version of a Reventon. We say his version because there was no way his $13,800 and his homemade parts could ever match the precision and quality of a true $2.3 million Lamborghini.
He started by buying a scale model of a Reventon and day by day, his 1995 Nissan A31 took on some replica parts and some homemade parts resembling the pieces from one of the most exclusive cars on Earth. He dropped in a Lamborghini RB25 engine and 12 days later, had himself what he calls his Lamborghini Reventon.
When it comes to getting a little "bling-bling," some people go way out of their way to make their cars look extreme. Take this Infiniti G37 Convertible , for example. This golden G37 Convertible was presented in a jewelry store in the city of Nanjing in Jiangsu Province. The whole exterior was draped in 24K gold adding crazy amounts of weight and undoubtedly slowing down the Infiniti’s performance time drastically.
We don’t know what it is about covering your vehicle in gold or diamonds, but it simply does not make sense. The owners are literally putting a big sparkling sign on their car that says, "Steal me!" Remember that older Porsche 996 Turbo covered in gold that was stolen, recovered, then stolen again? It’s not the owner’s fault, but there is a thing called being cautious and these owners need a lesson or two in it.

Once again, here’s proof that if you have enough money to buy a high-performance car, it doesn’t mean you’re actually capable of driving it too. A member of the Houston-Imports forum posted a few pictures of a Porsche 911 GT3 RS after he crashed it in Woodlands, Texas, and then attempted to drive it home.
While there aren’t many details available about the crash - all the guy said was that he would "Need to learn how to drive it.....especially in the combat zone of the Woodlands, TX" - we’re really, really curious about why the heck he would try and drive his car after a crash like that when you could just as easily wait for a tow-truck to do its magic. The answer to this question was given by the comment of another member: "a co-worker saw this car coming from [street names], apparently being a huge douche, hauling ass back and forth with the windows down".
Looks like the Top Gear trio is causing trouble again. A few months after Jeremy Clarkson was blamed for a few idiots over in the UK flipping a Reliant over on its side shortly after seeing Clarkson do it on Top Gear, the crew is back in the headlines for yet another fouled up attempt at hilarity.
Apparently a few fans of the show are up in arms about the men donning burkas on theirChristmas special. Burkas are a piece of clothing worn by Muslim women that cover them completely from head to toe, with the exception of their eyes. The men wore the burkas during their Christmas special as a "disguise" so that they could travel through the city without being "recognized."
The Twitter lines simply lighted up after the scene with many people taking offense to the choice of attire. One viewer said, "This is probably the worst top gear special. Y the f*** r they wearing burkas!!?" Another added, "Top gear – the burka joke wasn’t funny."
Still some fans came to the UK show’s defense by saying, "Why are so many people offended. It’s just a piece a clothing. The Burka is not in the Quaran at all. If people are so offended, why don’t they switch over the TV?"
In all honesty, we don’t think Top Gear intended to offend anyone. This was just their way of "blending in" so that no one would recognize them. It’s the equivalent to the men throwing on some kilts if they decided to do a show in Scotland or a cowboy hat to drive through the state of Texas. Of course, it probably wouldn’t have been so bad had Clarkson not made a comment about seeing a Muslim woman sporting a G-string under her gown a few months ago.
Usually when people drive a car like thePorsche Boxster S, they are very pleased with their form of transportation. Then there are those people that are never fully satisfied with what they have, the old "grass is always greener on the other side" scenario. The latter description fits the owner of this Porsche-turned-Lamborghini Murcielago . Yep, this guy overhauled his Porsche to turn it into a Murcielago. Maybe he missed his chance to own the Lamborghini once the last production model rolled off the line, but that still isn’t a reason to do this to a perfectly good Boxster.
Now, we really shouldn’t share this type of information for fear of someone else creating this type of sin, but this little project - complete with Lamborghini’s scissor doors - cost the owner $45,000. So if you want everyone to make fun of you and turn their nose up at your decision, go ahead and save up $45K and do this to your car.
Oh, those rock stars. They think they can get away with just about anything and expect no repercussions for their actions. Running rebels, are ya?
Well, one company isn’t letting the name of one iconic rock and roller from filing a lawsuit against the aforementioned star and now resident douche.
Bentley isn’t at all happy with Guns N’ Roses leadman, Axl Rose, for his direct involvement in turning a leased Continental Flying Spur from an exquisite luxury car to a destroyed heap on four wheels. Bentley Financials filed the suit seeking for payment to the damages done to the car that included, among other things, a cracked windshield, scratched wheels and trims, dented doors, gouged bumper cover, and even a missing remote key. And that’s not even getting into the part where he exceeded the car’s mileage limit by 42,000 miles.
As a result of the trashing, Bentley is requiring Mr. Guns N’ Roses to fork over $74,000 for all the damage he did to the car.
It’s one thing to go bonkers and trash a hotel room with your groupies, but for the love of God, you never, ever, destroy a car as awesome as a Bentley Continental Flying Spur. Shame on you, Axl Rose.
If you listen carefully, you’re going to hear a woman utter these words after witnessing the driver of a Bugatti Veyron back into a Toyota on the street. The woman may have captured the whole episode with those three words, but no words can really explain the level of stupidity of how this driver ended up damaging a $1.6 million supercar.
If the crash wasn’t bad enough, the driver even manages to scrape the front of the supercar twice, once before the crash and another one after.
Apparently, the driver was on his way to test drive the car when the crash occurred. Turns out, not only did he get further than a block with it, but word has it that he ended up having to pay for the damage, which cost over $30,000.
This is probably the most expensive ‘test drive’ we’ve ever heard of.
It seems that there are people out there who will do their very best to ensure that car thieves will make off with at least part of their car. Sound ridiculous? Well, it is, but it also seems to be true. Take this Bentley Continental GT , for example. The Bentley is already a tasty treat for car thieves everywhere, but this owner has sweetened the pot by adding Swarovski crystals to his luxury vehicle making this a deadly combination for the naive and insane car owner.
And if the crystals were not enough, the owner of this Continental GT also added a very unique exterior: white with orange flowers and flames. The crystals are "hidden" in the flames, but it is still impossible to miss the sparkly additions when you take a glance at the vehicle.
This Bentley was spotted on the streets of the Ukraine, but we’re just wondering how long the car will actually be cruising the streets before we get news of its abduction.
