• Katie Price buys herself a Bugatti Veyron; plans to paint it pink

Oh the tragedy! Many Americans may not be too familiar with Katie Price, but over in the UK, Price is widely known for her television appearances, her lackluster singing career, and her published books. With so many hobbies, we can only imagine that this little harlot has plenty of money to spend which is evident in her newest toy, a Bugatti Veyron.

Price laid out £1million - or around $1.6 million at the current exchange rates - on this beautifully fast supercar and plans on ruining it by painting it pink to match her other vehicles. Yeah, she has other pink cars to boast of. A close source to her said: "She will anger petrol-heads worldwide by turning such a beautiful, iconic machine bright pink. But at least it will match her other cars." Just goes to show that money can’t buy taste.

In addition to the high cost of the supercar, it seems Price has also purchased a rather expensive "F1" license plate. The Sun doesn’t say anything about the F1 plate slapped right on the front of the car, but it looks very similar to the license plate auctioned off in 2008 to Afzal Kahn (Kahn Design owner) for £440,000 (about $880,000). We don’t know for sure, but with the amount of money Price throws around, we wouldn’t be surprised.

Well, at least she’s not killing that machine. I think it’s going to be fun to see cars that painted in pink, but not definitely all.

Well color pink for the girls is so cute and makes them too girly either. Correct me if I’m wrong, flush cars can really catch lots of attention most especially to all the ladies. smiley

Actually, I feel envy to those that can afford this vehicle. Well, I don’t think that it’s necessary to have an impressive speed performance

Well, its great she got to own her own Veyron. However, I don’t think that the aggressiveness of the Veyron is appropriate for a woman like her.

Hell! $880,000 is really a huge amount and seeing a six figure digit makes me dizzy! Well, it seems that Katie Price was paid for a high pay check that’s why she affords to buy this high end luxurious vehicle with the special kind of licensed plate!

I don’t get why ladies wants a pink color for their ride? The same thing goes with Paris Hilton when she bought her Bentley. The Bugatti is too sharp and sporty for Katie Price and seeing a pink Veyron will definitely hurts my eyes.

I’m not really familiar with Katie but now, I think she will be famous now because it’s not a joke to buy a Bugatti Veyron that cost millions. By the way, I don’t like the idea of painting it with pink. The car will look dumb.

Wow! It seems that Katie Price got a huge paycheck for her singer and book writer career! I feel envy that she owns a million dollar Bugatti car! However, I still think that the sportiness of the car is not suitable for a sophisticated woman like her.

The car look so sporty for a lady like her. I would love to see a customized version of the vehicle like what Paris Hilton did to her Bentely. BTW, I’m curious on when did Price purchased her Bugatti since it was just recent before this car manufacturer announced the killing of its production.
