The lifestyles of the rich and famous seem to include all the finest things - especially fast, sexy cars. There was a time back in the Golden Age of early cinema when no Hollywood star would be seen in anything less the the most over-the-top luxury car imaginable. A rolling palace of gold and ivory, fit for a king - if he could afford it.
But these days, cars have become as much a political and ideological statement as anything else. Today's chic car might not be the most expensive out there, and setting trends isn't always about who can spend the most money anymore. Then there's the anonymity factor; in a town where paparazzi pop out of manholes and garbage piles like New York City rats, it often pays to play it a little low-key when daily drivers are concerned.That's not to say ultra-high-dollar cars are exactly out of style in Hollywood - we're sure that every star owns at least one. But you might be surprised at these real-life celebrity cars that have been purchased over the years.
