We’d be willing to bet that very few alumni of FHM Magazine’s “100 Sexiest Women in the World” have also been featured with their cars in DUB Magazine, and we would almost guarantee that Courtney Hansen is the only one in that population that was once called by Hot Rod Magazine “the female face of hot rodding.” Intrigued? So were we. Courtney is a former co-host of TLC’s Overhaulin’, and is the current host of Spike TV’s PowerBlock every Saturday and Sunday. Courtney has a new show on Spike TV premiering on August 17th called Great Builds, and she was also a stunt car driver in The Dark Knight. Okay, we made up the part about being a stunt car driver, but that’s probably the only thing that could make Courtney Hansen any cooler. With that, another MyRide With. Continue…

We already told you the 2008 Cadillac CTS was hot when we made it the MyRide Car of the Year, but don’t take it from us, take it from Hugh Hefner. Hugh made sure this year’s Playboy Playmate of the Year, Jayde Nicole, took home a brand new CTS. To those of you that think Hugh Hefner is tasteless, Hugh Hefner 2, you, 0.

What are you waiting for? Do you need another reason to check out the CTS?

Britney Spears was spotted yesterday on her way into an LA courthouse for a status hearing on her kids. Anyone know if she has taken custody of this white Range Rover? I know she gave up for adoption her old Range Rover to Jamie Lynn, and her dad has been busy selling off some of her existing babies. Well if Britney does bring back a new ride to the crib, you’ll read it here first.

No Limo? No Problem!

Robert Downey Jr. has spent the past couple weeks promoting the upcoming Iron Man at premieres across world. Rather than hopping in a limo, at every premiere he pulls up in the car his character drives in the movie. Lucky for Downey Jr. his character is a wealthy Audi R8-owning industrialist.

We aren’t wealthy industrialists, but we are getting the keys to an Audi R8 next month, so look out for that on MyRide soon.





Britney valets Mercedes at McDonald’s…kind of.

Look, I see no issue with a $200,000 car parked at a restaurant with a $1 menu – I don’t believe the price of the car you drive has to correlate with the price of the menu you order from. That said, I do hope Britney Spears recognizes that she’s parked in a handicap spot, not a valet line.

In case you were wondering, Britney is rocking the AMG version of the SL-Class. What’s AMG? Check out our review of the Mercedes-Benz CLK 63 AMG Black Series for a little history on these three magical letters.





Family Sedan for Madden & Richie

21 02 2008

Nicole Richie and Joel Madden recently became parents, so it’s appropriate that they’ve been out driving a nice family sedan (a Bentley Continental Flying Spur). But what about other Hollywood parents? Look out soon for another Celebrity Car Parade Spotlight, this time on the automotive world of celebrity parenting.

$140,000 – Keys Not Included

20 02 2008

Celebrity cars that push +$100,000 are nothing new to the Parade, but good luck valeting this one. Nick Lachey was on hand as Hot Wheels unveiled a one-of-a-kind 40th anniversary-edition model encrusted with over 2,700 diamonds, giving it an estimated value of $140,000.

Rather than explaining more, I’m going to let the MyRide video crew break it down for you.
